On this date one year ago, /r/FortniteBR was created! Share your favorite moments from the last year in the comments. <3

To celebrate, we have also launched a Subreddit Discord full of helpful resources! We'll host games, subreddit discussions, and hang out with our community more here.

It's amazing how far this subreddit and this game have come. Wow.

Obligatory thanks to all the mods for everything they've done over the last year, and special shoutouts to /u/dream_paragon who originally reserved this subreddit and willingly turned it over when we decided to swap names, /u/MCiLuZiioNz for putting together the CSS framework on literally hours notice, and /u/BurlsteinBurl, /u/FinallyRage, and /u/Amerikoni for jumping on day 1 to get this thing rolling.

Brief personal sidenote, this post just hit me hard because a year ago I was setting this place up during the lunch break of my 9-5 office job, and now I've got the coolest gig in the universe.

Did I miss something? The comment said 4 days ago and the patch just released today.

Let me apologize for the misunderstanding then. We work on a slightly different release schedule than what is seen as the next patch to the public. I should have been more specific in my wording since the patch you received today was already in the process of being certified, which means no new changes were being made at that time. The change will be in the patch after this one that you just received.

We haven't patched since I mentioned the change.

Should have been in the patch notes from the beginning, for transparencies sake.

You're correct. This was our mistake and it has since been added.

Hey folks,

You may have noticed we've disabled the Video Capture feature on Nintendo Switch as of the v5.40.2 client update. This was done for performance and stability reasons as we've been seeing a high rate of Out of Memory related crashes. Disabling this feature saves a significant amount of RAM while also having a positive effect on overall performance across the board.

We've since added a line about this in the Patch Notes and we're considering the possibility of making this feature optional in the future for players who don't mind taking a hit on their performance.

Hey there!

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. This latest patch should have fixed all of the issues shown above. Let us know if you run into any other visual or translation issues with in-game text. Thanks!

But you guys yourself said you were looking into at least North African servers.

I would assume you would only say that if you guys saw the numbers were clearly enough right?

I mean, i would say that most likely at least 90% of all the users who have over 170ms right now, are all close enough to Africa, that an African Server would 100% lower their latency and provide a better experience.

Its just extremely frustrating. Having shots simply not register is the most un-fun thing you can have in a video game, i would prefer having to lead my shot, the way BF handles high latency.

We're looking into lots of potential regions. I don't want to exclude anything in the future, I only want to set expectations that we won't be able to set up a subregion everywhere we'd like to right now.

Multiple cloud providers have South Africa servers, not trying to be rude, but this a pure excuse.

This thread, is literally filled with people asking for an African/South African server, and you guys just ignore it.

You will more than happy take our money from out South African Credit Cards though lol.

Azure has cloud computing in SA.

There is countless games/services in SA now, there is no excuse. Valve,EA,Microsoft all have SA based servers, hell even Discord has South African servers now.

Not all server hardware is created equal, we require very significant capacity of very specific instance types. Those are much harder to find than servers running VOIP or other games.

In addition, not all potential subregions will be healthy enough from a matchmaking perspective to be split off.

Hey there!

Sometimes it takes a bit of time for all servers to grab the hotfix immediately after it's released. The Drum Gun will end up being vaulted for all game modes though.

Random question, is your screen name in relation to the weapon from the Unreal Tournament series?

I see you've been with Epic for a pretty long time now.

Yes :)

Awesome! Would that potentially improve ping for someone on the West coast playing on NA-East servers?

At the moment the subregion will be determined by the party leader, so if the party leader is closer to Ohio than Virginia, playing from NAW to NAE should be improved!
