  • [OFFICIAL] Extended downtime brief explanation

    During our downtime to upgrade to 2.3, we were performing recommended tasks to resolve a lingering database issue. Those tasks ended up causing the database to go into a bad state. After significant consideration, we decided our best option was to restore from a backup at the moment we took the servers down for the patch. Our first restore failed (due to issues *unrelated* with the quality of the backup) and we're working on a second attempt at the restore. We're on it and it will be up as soon as humanly possible.
    UPDATE: 1:43 PM Eastern: Our ongoing work on the party issues inadvertently resulted in some players being placed in an incorrect region. This should self correct, but please make sure to check you are on the your correct region before matchmaking!
    UPDATE 2:18 PM Eastern: Party and Social services are continuing to be impacted. We are investigating ways to mitigate and are continuing to look into the root cause. We are unsure if downtime will be necessary today.

        @xPr0_Sn1pE315x That's the whole thing about games: they deliver an entertainment service which you can (in this case, choose to) support with money

        I think its more about the fact that a lot of people bought the battle pass and don't have a lot of time to play so the game being down is putting people at a lose since there are not getting the time to make there battle pass worth the money.

        Being down for 12 hours is not ging to be significant enough to impact on battle pass grinders.

      L'attente est insupportable mais ... si c'est pour que l'on puisse un jour rejouer à Fortnite .... Je vous donne tout le temps qu'ils vous faudra, même si j’espère pouvoir jouer dès ce soir !!

            Yes please I really want to buy the game it just kills me knowing I missed out on the sale for Christmas, this would make me so happy but to be honest I know they don't even have to give anything free or on sale for us I just like this idea better then anything else because I'd buy it in a heartbeat. One free tier is technically worth it if the downtime only last one day so if they did anything more than that they are extremely generous since they don't really have to do anything (yes people would be mad but they really don't) I'd REALLY love if the game went on sale so I could buy the deluxe version since I was planning on paying $40 anyways.

                No need for the salt, this game is free to play and a hell of a lot better than the alternatives IMO. Good luck on the fix and I can't wait to play soon
