Epic Games Apologizes for Fortnite Downtime with Free Loot

Epic Games Apologizes for Fortnite Downtime with Free Loot

As a response to the issue, Fortnite made a decision to bring the servers offline for an emergency maintenance. We presently don't have any ETA on when servers shall be again up.

While the tweet by Pornhub was certainly a joke, the Pornhub insights team at the end of March had released information that there's been a huge spike in people searching for Fortnite porn videos on their website.

Perhaps this higher-than-100 player mode could be tested as a Limited Time diversion to gauge reception among players.

"Not only did it break records for concurrent Twitch views, it caused searches on Pornhub to increase 824 percent above average".

The mobile version of Fortnite was first launched just over a month ago and it saw a large number of fans sign up to try out the new portable version of the game. Due to the ridiculous number of players and the ease of finding games and jumping in, there's a great chance of meeting these nearly stereotypical Fortnite players at this point.

Indeed, it didn't take long for players to flood social media networks like Twitter with posts that were seeped in despair, wondering when Fortnite would come back up. Save the World players are getting a free Troll Stash Llama in the loot tab. According to Comicbook, Epic Games may be increasing the #Player count past 100 in "Fortnite" in the future. "We messed up here". Additionally, there are four sets of five Battle Stars for the normal difficulty tasks, while hard challenges will each award players with 10 Battle Stars. Everyone is used to the vast majority of players in a game, which is why the battle royale genre is so fun and exciting. This will require brief additional downtime, so we will be including it as a part of our planned update next week.

We'll know soon enough, though, as Epic says it has a detailed postmortem about this week's issues in the works. "Look for this later next week".
