Which is great, but as a PC player you’re put at a huge advantage if you have it enabled (which most people would because why wouldn’t you?) You get to go against users who are using platforms that are not as capable as a PC.

In summary - mobile players and console players should have it disabled because they most likely will just get destroyed by PC players. PC players should have it enabled because they are at an advantage based on platform. Are there plenty of console players who can play better than PC players? Absolutely. But disregarding skill as a whole, speaking objectively, the platform itself will give each player a huge advtange or disadvantage. I’m just saying crossplay in general will give PC players a bigger advantage to those who choose to have it enabled (aka most PC players)

It’s not enabling/disabling. Crossplay happens if you are on mobile and want to play with a PC buddy. You can join up and play together on PC servers. PC players can’t jump in and play on mobile servers. Basically imagine having a party and having three mobiles join the PC at the house as a squad on PC servers, that’s the purpose.

Yeah you don’t have to worry about that. PC players can squad up with PS4 friends, but they will be on PC servers... not the other way around.

Battle Royale Will my skins be saved?

Hey guys so I had a hardware issue with my PS4 and basically had to reset everything. Will my skins be saved when I log on tonight ?

Hey there! All of the data pertaining to your stats, purchases, and progress is tied to your Epic account, rather than your console. The only way you will lose progress is if you ask us to unlink your PS4 from your Epic account.

Mi dispiace! Parlero' con la squadra localizzazione!

To quote Nick C.: It's opt in. A PC gamer cannot join a mobile queue, but a mobile gamer can opt in to play with a PC player. They're not all dumped into one matchmaking pool.

The team is on it! We'll post updates shortly.

We are diving into this as we speak, thanks for the heads up!

What happened to the on/off setting that switched the functions of X/O on PS4? It used to be somewhere near 60 FPS and now its removed and i’m stuck with my X/O switched

We actually are addressing that in this build, it slipped through the cracks shortly after we introduced it :) . You should have the setting again in the 3.2.1 patch.

Hey Folks!

We’ll be pushing a v3.2.1 update out on March 9th to address a few performance issues and to change the storm timers in the Teams of 20 LTM. The update will ship at 4am ET (0900 GMT) with no downtime.

General

  • Fixed a Texture Streaming Crash for all platforms
  • Fixed Farm details not rendering from far away
  • Fixed the "Accept" and "Back" button swap issue

Battle Royale

Limited Time Mode: Teams of 20

We'll be removing two minutes from storm 6 wait time and adding 1 minute each to storm 1 & 2.

  • Storm Circle 1: Random location. 120s wait, 180s shrink time.
  • Storm Circle 2: Random location. 120s wait, 90s shrink time.
  • Storm Circle 3: Location centered on previous storm (for the rest of the match). 120s wait, 90s shrink time.
  • Storm Circle 4: 120s wait, 60s shrink.
  • Storm Circle 5: 180s wait, 60s shrink.
  • Storm Circle 6: 120s wait, 120s shrink.

Thanks!

Evidence: https://i.gyazo.com/4334530256cfc75282c207ff265897dc.mp4

If replicable, how: Hit any non-destructible surface just once (single click) like the floor, the side of a cliff etc.

Platform: PC

Got word that this one is fixed in next build! Thanks!

We have some stuff coming ;)

So you can't speak on behalf of the two different anticheat codes you're forcing on your customers, but are knowledgeable enough to work in said department?

I don't care what you do when you're not playing Fortnite.

If players are flairing up that these anticheats are invasive and potentially ruin other gaming experiences while being equally ineffective that may be something to take into consideration.

Sorry, poor phrasing on my part. We don't monitor your activity in other games (or in general when not playing Fortnite), but we do want to ensure that Fortnite is fair for all of our players. As stated elsewhere in the thread, EAC will not run on your computer at all unless you launch Fortnite (or another EAC-protected game) - and then is only active for the duration of the game session.

Failed to initialize BattlEye Service: Windows Test-Signing Mode not supported.

Windows Test-Signing mode is not supported while playing Fortnite. You'll need to disable that in order to play as it enables the loading of unsigned kernel drivers.

So you're willing to put out there that EAC will NOT be active at any time other than when I'm running Fortnite?

Is EAC running with the Epic Launcher or the actual Fortnite client? I leave that client logged in almost all the time.

Sorry, not just going to willy nilly let some Anti-Cheat with a seriously shit reputation install and run on my PC without more than just, "OH we don't do that anymore, we promise!!"

Correct, the EAC process is spawned when you click "Launch" in Fortnite, not while the Epic Games Launcher is active. You can check your process list and the service status to verify.

I was prompted to run both EAC and BattlEye. Should that have happened?

Correct. Both will be installed on your computer, but only one will be active at a given time.

Originally posted by PVPPhelan

No, that's not the case and don't even try and sell that. I've played more BattleEye protected games than I care to count and never had the problems I've had with EAC.

You want to snoop on processes that hook into Fortnite... sure, but everything else I do on my PC is none of your god damned business. If I want to cheat in Assassin's Creed, that's my damn business. If I want to mod my Skyrim to BDSM My Lil Pony, that's my damn business. The moment your Anti-cheat starts poking around in my business, I uninstall your game.

EAC will be blocked. If I'm unable to login, your game will be uninstalled from every PC in my house and I will start chargeback proceedings on all my recent purchases from Fortnite.

I'm not a BattlEye rep, I'm not an EAC rep. I don't know how their products interact with other games you may have played. I'm part of Epic's anticheat team. I'm going to repeat this:

If you run cheat software at the same time as Fortnite, you will be banned.

Nothing about that statement has changed in the last 24 hours, regardless of which anticheat provider happens to be running on your computer. I don't care what you do when you're not playing Fortnite.

If you want refunds on purchases due to your account being banned for cheating, you are welcome to do so through the Player Support process and they will be granted.

EAC is a flaming pile of shit that will go off if you're running another anti-cheat at the same time. It will go off if you have a trainer for a single player game still loaded. "Hey, I was just Playing AC:O and ran a trainer to get gold, now I'm banned from Fortnite!" Yeah Fuck EAC and everything about it even if it's a "NEW AND IMPROVED" version.

If you're running cheat software at the same time as Fortnite, you will be banned. That was the case before EAC and remains the case in the EAC+BE world.

Nice duel, definitely got some snazzy building skills! Not to mention the compliments from Myth... well played.

Originally posted by PVPPhelan

Can we opt out of one of the two? I'll gladly use BattleEye, EAC might just make me find another game.

No, you cannot opt out of the installation. However, please note that the OP was mistaken about EAC's capabilities and it does not take screenshots of your desktop. EAC's eSports anticheat product (which is not what is implemented in Fortnite) is the product that does that.

Originally posted by AtomicXLC

I’m not worried about accidentally being banned from OTHER games because I only play fortnite at this point, but I’m worried about them taking screenshots of my game or any thing else, what if I’m typing in credit card numbers and they screenshot it or something?

TL;DR #2 is bad.

Please see elsewhere in the thread. The OP was mistaken and the EAC product implemented in Fortnite does not take screenshots.
