Squads have been live in OCE for a few hours - are you not seeing the option?

When the server came back up it changed to a super MELEE llama.

I'm guessing /u/JustMooney1 was in a rush and gave us the wrong info.

indeed I was...I was helping I promise.

When i sent my refund request to Epic they told me to contact Sony. which we know how smooth that goes. I told Epic support they denied my request and asked for help. This was last week and no one ever emailed back. How can I be sure my request is still open and will be worked on?

Yeah just ping our Player Support team again and follow up.

Hey Xbox players … the free version of Fortnite Battle Royale is now LIVE on the Xbox Marketplace! https://t.co/xXLwP3IZ69

We are pushing a backend change in the next couple of hours that will change which Llama is available in the store. Currently it is the Super Melee Llama Pack, make sure you grab it while it is available as there is a low probability it will remain following the change.

The normal Llama change will occur at 8:00 PM EDT as usual.

Thanks folks!

EDIT: Deleted last post due to confusing title, apologies.

Oops, Typo. The Super Melee llama pack is actually in the store right now, not the Super Hero pack.

Yeah I accidentally lost a word.

Like many new players today, I downloaded and dived into the game.
Heck, I even streamed the game, like what Epic Games was planning for!
I streamed it on YouTube and I thought almost every moment was pretty interesting.
 
The gameplay was smooth, graphics so pretty and colors popping up really nicely.
I'm not super good in FPS, think and react really slow but I had a blast!
The highest I ranked was 5th and that was good enough for me.
The guy that killed me placed 1st so I'm glad.
 
See you guys in the storm!

Best of luck to you! Hope you get some Ws on Battle Royale.

I like the idea of this! Make sure you leave this type of feedback in-game too! I do like getting medkits for the survivors though, I worked...
Battle Royale Servers are up!

Good luck everyone. Bring home those Ws.

Battle Royale First game ever on PS4!

That's awesome! Congrats on the W.

I'm trying to remind myself that there were tons of tiny patches during 1.5.x that were equally as minor for PVE. But it's not easy when I am so fearful of the PVE I wanted being ditched for PVP I hate.

Fear not, we full intend to continue driving forward with PvE content. With our next event just around the corner, we will be providing more info on the Save the World updates in the next week!

Battle Royale @fortnitegame
The free version of Battle Royale should be available on Xbox Marketplace in about an hour.
Closing this one. Everyone is certainly free to share their opinions but the direct insults to each other aren't what we want to see around here.

As a preface the rain cap doesn't really come into effect until you get out of Plankerton, low level evolves aren't so punishing, so if you're in Plank and not struggling for rain, enjoy learning about the future.

Until last night I was in a 2 day drought during my play time.

No rain drops in 64/70/76 mission rewards, I got a few from lower level storm rewards but when I capped my storm tickets I got nothing.

I'm trying to avoid wasting them... I have 4x4 star heroes (I made 1 Phase Scout Jess mistake when I was excited about getting a mythic hero), 2x3 star weapons (had 1 but it wasn't energy then got hydra), 4x3 star traps (2 ceiling, 1 floor, 1 wall) and most of my survivors are stuck at 20/20 2 stars... I'm starting Twine, I'm under powered, I try to get all the rain I can and it just straight up isn't enough.

Right now, excluding survivors who are an ever present need for rain drops, I need over 200 rain drops to evolve things up to my current level of content...

(Including survivors that number is too depressingly high to calculate, but it's in the thousands...)

I want to evolve traps so I have more options to help out during missions, I can't due to rain.

I want to evolve (non soldier) heroes to try them out in missions, I can't due to rain.

I want to evolve heroes for squad missions, I can't due to rain.

I want to evolve weapons to try them out, I can't due to rain.

I want to evolve survivors of different personalities so I can switch over to 2 legendary leads I got from the current event, I can't due to rain.

I want to evolve survivors so I can experiment with synergies and have a trap damage/ability damage loadout I can't due to rain.

TL:DR Considering the amount of rain you need to evolve survivors, heroes, traps and weapons even if they tripled the rain rewards you'd still get capped on rain.

How could this be fixed? Any of the following

(a) Drastically reduce the number of rain needed for higher star evolves (the numbers get silly, especially for survivors)

(b) Drastically increase rain drop rates (3 or 4 times current)

(c) Add "rain catching" squad missions small, medium, large rain reward, 20/40/80 (pls no 20 hour missions....)

What do you guys think? Am I being overly dramatic or do you guys also feel limited by what you can do/experiment based on rain drop availability.

Awesome discussion going on here, and definitely some good stuff in the realm of suggestions/feedback. The paths to acquisition of components, drops or not, are on our radar. If you haven't yet I'd check out the last dev update!

Hey Folks,

We’re working on getting refunds processed for those of you that requested it. Unfortunately it’s taking a little longer than we’d like, but rest assured you’re going to get a refund.

Thanks for your patience! We’re working to get this issue resolved as quickly as possible for those affected.

I have a question. Someone know if they will add vehicles maybe? Some sort of funny motors or others just to match this mode and overall game style?

We are prototyping ideas but nothing is concrete. We’ll update when we have some more information to share about vehicles.

I just wanted to know is there cross play between pc and PS4 like with paragon if so can I (PS4) squad up with friends on pc?

There is only cross-progression, no cross-play.
