Of course not, we can't even see detailed stats in game. This is something Epic falls short in and it's ridiculous. Especially when they release a game where stats are actually important.

Totally agree which is why we're running this as a one-off exploration of what we need to do.

What does self-selected competitors mean? Are you up against your entire server or a random group of 100 people who join the event?

You're matched against people on your region and platform who also select the Solo Showdown mode.

You didn't see the super-duper invisible buff in the patch notes? Kidding! I'll send this over to the QA team to investigate. looks like the blaster spawned under the map some how. Thanks for sharing!

Wow. First match and I got to face a lovely team of 3 grouped up together

SoloShowdown

First team of two encountered - https://youtu.be/ud_p1iQv8U4

Second team of two encountered - https://youtu.be/SeFOBeAtvmk

We still take teaming very seriously. If you see this while playing, please report them with the in game reporting feature.

It's super satisfying when this lines up. Makes for a pretty edgy defense strategy.. am I right?

Correct me if I'm wrong, I think this mode has skill based matchmaking or something similar

This mode does not have skill based matchmaking.

And it sucked so bad to try and get around the map. Then you made the Hoverboard. Then the new events started getting better. THEN RECOMBOBULATOR.

I was a BR magnate, but now I’m finding myself only ever wanting to play STW.

Thank you Epic for this awesome update!

This is definitely an awesome update.

Regarding the sprinting and stamina.. I do NOT miss those days! I was a huge Ninja main and the stamina changes (No stamina on sprinting and double jump stamina reduction) have been amazing and made Ninja game play super smooth. Enjoy the 4.2 update! We still have plenty of awesome things planned.

Battle Royale Epic pls

Fixed :) Good catch, thanks!

The Fortnite team will frequently update this blog with the Solo Showdown standings. Top performers will be rewarded at the conclusion of this competition.*

AWARDS:

1st Place:  50,000 V-Bucks

You can see the full rules here.

We’ll be using the Solo Showdown as a one-off stepping stone to learn how to build great events for all types of players. If you crave testing and improving your own skills, give it a try and let us know what you think. To thank you for participating, play 50 games get a unique spray.

Just played a game and got killed by a crossbow. Probly glitch, or maybe were getting bamboozled

There was an issue yesterday where for a very short time the Crossbow and Guided Missile were available in 50v50. So, no bamboozle. It was corrected as soon as we found out.

We originally debated whether you should be able to drink a Slurp at full health. The argument was we didn't want folks to accidentally waste it. Ultimately we decided to allow it for this very reason - awesome to see it actually play out. Nice!

So this weapon just went from "pretty good stormblade variant" to "absolute garbage". The explosion triggers after 6 hits, and heavily damages player built structures. Bad. Bad bad bad bad bad.

Yeah this one is a bug. It'll get fixed in our next patch.

If you have a full inventory and pick up an instanced drop (like a gift), all the items you can't carry simply vanish.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. We threw it on our Trello board so you can follow the progress on it HERE.

To change a non elemental roll on a weapon it costs 1000 perk up, alerts only offer 36 in 70 missions.. wtf. If we do the maths just based on the alerts, 1000 divided by 36 = 28 rounded up. I also did a lvl 64 cat 2 where the RE-PERK was one of the main rewards and only got 31 out of a lvl 5 chest, an even lower amount than from the alert. Assuming you only play defense missions, you can also get an extra 25 from killing a chrome husk, if we consider this in the calculation, 25+36 = 66. 1000 divided by 66 = 15.. So on average assuming you only do defense missions, it'll still take you 15 missions to reroll one perk, on one weapon. Am i missing something here? why are these rewards so terrible?

Please keep in mind that the system is still newly released. We'll continue to monitor the feedback around the perk materials and make adjustments as needed. Keep playing / testing!

A door glitch. At times in game, the door appears to be open, but it doesn’t let you through. Happens every now and then. Only way to fix this, is open and close the door again to pass through.

Evidence: Will record a gameplay when it happens

Platform: Mobile

That's not good. We'll look into it, thanks!
