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

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.

If you purchased Fortnite between 9/12 - 9/20 and haven’t contacted Epic Games Player Support, please do so here.

If you’ve already contacted Epic Games Player Support and are awaiting refund updates, we’ll have one for you shortly.

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

Solo queue only.... really? What’s wrong with solos + squads?

We are enabling Squads in OCE region. Should be within the hour.

gotcha, no wonder it was laggy.

OCE servers for BR will be online once we bring servers up again in a few.

Battle Royale Aim Down Sensitivity?
Originally posted by Anciom

Currently, it seems like there is only one type of sensitivity you can adjust: the camera speed. Epic, please add a separate sens for aiming down.

We're planning to add a separate sensitivity setting while targeting in an upcoming patch. Thanks for the feedback!

Battle Royale I believe i got banned
Originally posted by boatank

First of all, no need to rip me apart here. Its deserved.

My buddy and i got sick of seeing teams of 3 and even 4 people nearly every Game so we decided to team up for a couple of Games.

Now i wanted to hop in the Game but the play button is greyed out and says " not available at the moment" or something like this.

Tried re-installing the Game and cannot even Download it.

I havent gotten any Email or notification if im banned or not, i just cannot click the play/download button.

If i got banned its totally deserved but i wonder, how long is the ban?

Pretty weird to not notify players in such a case if they are really banned or not and how long the ban is gonna be.

Anyone knows how they handle it?

None the less, cudos to the devs for reacting fast! We started our first teaming Game yesterday or so and if its really a ban, man they were quick!

Its a great Game and easily the most fun i had in a BR Game since a long time, secretly crossing fingers for it not beeing a perma ban.

EDIT 1: I just got an respond from the fortnite support team. Im banned for 3 Days.

Screenshot proof: https://gyazo.com/937721470b050eaa38f259a41fb403fa

I think 3 days is okay for the first time. I guess future bad behaviours would push the lenght up.

1.6.3 improves client side notification for BR matchmaking bans.

That was majestic building and then the end…so funny. 😭

Absolutely nothing about what they are doing with cheaters and teamers in solo games…

Game is screwed to be honest.

They are operating in a bubble… Focused on all the things that only matter if there aren’t cheaters and abusers. These notes sound GREAT if that weren’t the case.

But yeah, have fun playing tomorrow when the game goes free for everyone and there’s at least 3 cheaters in every match. The only people who are going to win matches will be cheaters. I’m calling it now.

Also no, adding squads doesn’t magically remove teamers from solo matches… plus being in a squad with randoms vs being in a squad with people on 3rd party voice chat is hardly a fair fight. Can we even type to our team yet?

We’ve banned a few thousand cheaters already. We don’t make it a public spectacle.

At the top of the sub, the moderators were kind enough to sticky our state of Development thread, which provided some information on those two specific items.

>We hope the introduction of Squads will reduce the desire for teaming in solo play. That being said, we stood up a system that will automatically and swiftly ban teamers. We’ve been manually running the detection tool to verify results and Player Support has been using the results to ban teamers for almost a week. The full automation will go live with the 9/26 update.

>Cheating (aimbots, overlays, and such) is something we take seriously on both the legal and development front. Going free increases the challenge and is lighting a fire under our efforts. It is hard to talk about what we’re doing here without making it easier for cheat creators… so we won’t :-) Cheaters are banned!

Really exciting stuff, I wasn’t expecting such a huge amount of changes/fixes and improvements. It’s been, what, 2 weeks as of tomorrow since BR was released? Let’s hope development continues at this pace. This has already replaced PUBG as my go-to BR game and I can’t wait to see what they do with it moving forward.

That said, I’ve been having a ton of fun with the PvE as well, which is something I didn’t expect.

Overall really happy with the game. Keep up the great work Epic!

Thanks, we’ll do our best to continue blazing through! Lots to work on and improve, but the team is really excited.
Let us know what you think we can improve in the weeks/months ahead.

Okay maybe I am a total idiot and just not understanding, but why would they delay duo queue to see if there’s enough people for it? Surely if there’s enough for 4 man random queues there’s enough for 2 man random queues? Or is it an issue of not wanting to split the playerbase between two different queues? (I think I just answered my own question didn’t I)

We have concerns about splitting the player population between too many playlists without being certain it can sustain itself.

Impressive updates wow! Now a leaderboard/rank system up next and you’ll get me hooked in your game for a looong time

Leaderboards are certainly something we care about. We talk about them in the State of Development post.

This is amazing

Glad to hear you think so.

Ahh, damn. Need a way to swap shoulders. Very important a TPS game.

We’re discussing quite a bit when it comes to camera options. Camera swapping is definitely in those discussions.
