          Every time there's an ANNOUNCEMENT regarding updating or downtime due to update, there should be linked or written patch notes within it, imo

            Add cosmetic items for heroes. You already have head and backpack items.
            also skins would be great.

                Great patch as always but im wondering if consoles can get a lower graphics setting to go with the uncapped fps setting in an attempt to make it as smooth as possible. Also custom controller mapping please.

                  How much downtime, very rough estimate? One hour? Several hours?

                    Can we stop these updates always at the same time? Move them back to 6. Some people get off work late and would like to play. Or at least change it up the down time.

                                    Seriously. Fix it and leave it. We should be able to set our scope to be as slow or as fast as we want, not just ‘as fast as Epic thinks it should be.’ Right now you can’t even catch up to someone sprinting sideways unless you’re like 1,000 feet away. It’s pointless.

                                    Also:

                                    When do you guys plan to make improvements to auto aim?

                                    When do you plan to address and/or make a statement regarding the a55holes who teamkill in squads? That’s great that we can report someone for doing so here:
                                    http://fortnitehelp.epicgames.com/cu...ticles/2843190
                                    but nobody has addressed whether or not any action is ever actually taken against such abusers. I have no problem capping video of teamkillers and taking 5-10 minutes to submit it, but not unless I KNOW something will be done about it, and as of right now, it doesn’t appear that ANYTHING is being done about it.

                                    When are you going to fix the bug that causes a players’ inventory menu to be stuck open while simultaneously invisible? This bug has been around since day one and it’s annoying as shat. “Oh, I need to switch to my build menu? Too bad, can’t do it - the circle button does nothing because the game thinks my inventory menu is open. Looks like I’m gonna have to jump over this fence to find cover. Too bad, can’t do it - the game thinks my inventory menu is open. Well, maybe I can just crouch behind this fence using R3 since I can’t jump over it with the X button! Too bad, can’t do it - the game thinks my inventory menu is open and every time I press R3 it asks me how much of some ‘unidentifiable item’ I’d like to drop. Can I look at my map? No. Can I actually open my inventory menu? No. All I can do is run, aim, and switch weapons. Great - that works.

                                    When are the ‘dud grenades’ going to be fixed?

                                    When are you going to fix unopened chests so that they no longer remain ‘openable’ for a few seconds after you’ve already opened it? I love when I open a chest, and then try to press square to pick up the guns/items, but my crosshairs get locked on the chest again while someone else picks up the only weapon that popped out and shoots me in the side of the head.

                                    When are you going to fix the bug for the combat pro controls that reverts the structure intended to be built to the first one (wall) when changing materials? I love when I have stairs selected but after switching from metal to wood, the game decides that I no longer want to build stairs, but a wall instead.

                                    When are you going to fix matchmaking so I people no longer get put into a squad of 1, 2, or 3 total people? I wish I kept track of how many times I was forced to begin a squad match with only one or two other teammates. I don’t want the handicap of a 3-person squad, nor do I want others to be forced to deal with the handicap. I want everyone else to have just as much of a chance as I do. If there aren’t enough people in queue for me to get a full squad, present me with the option to withdraw and wait for a match where I can actually get a full squad. I’d rather wait 10 minutes to get a full squad than have to play short-handed from the start.

                                    Its cool that youre adding skins, and fixing other cosmetic items, but who cares about aesthetics when the game has so many bugs that actually break gameplay and detract from the overall experience so tremendously.

                                    since your talking mainly pvp, relax u didnt pay money. secondly.... chilll TF out the pve is amazing and theyre making progress. this game is awesome and still in development. you act like u spent 60 bucks and the game hasnt made improvements. the pve FPS update definitely made me appreciate the devs in progessing the development of a game that i paid early access to which will eventually be free next year. smoke a bowl or something brother

                                      The majority of the playerbase favors Battle Royale. Secondly, I paid $150 dollars, and I enjoyed the PVE while it lasted. It got boring quickly and I switched over to mainly PVP. PVP should be emphasized.

                                                  fortnite have a real bad network with real bad servers so i think thats way more important because a lot of ppl me included are sick and tire of getting killed by some ****ing highping lagging a55holes. Everything over a 50 ping should be kicked from the servers until they get their network on point. I havnt any of the problems that you describe so mayby delete the game from the ps4 and reinstalled (got over 100h playtime so far) or dont use a custom controller because my standart controller never did the inputs so fast that i get stucked in a menu. Playing on a ps4 pro with a hybrid ssd/normal hdd and got not problems like you

                                                    There maybe an issue with the epic troll chest. I found the key and opened several big pink chests marked with a troll sign. Maybe it is not the correct one because it has the fake troll sign but it contains a lot of great loot which I can collect. The quest remains unsolved, tho.
                                                    Thanks for a great game!

                                                          With this new patch I've downloaded it but it's saying the servers are down what's the deal ???when's it coming back online no details what's that about??? Agreed that some of the things in this should be left alone yeah there should be different camera angle on rocket launcher for now as the pumpkin launcher is huge. Dud grenades from distance I've found issues with placing building parts such as stairs mainly and in that process getting killed needs attention. Lag is definitely killing game as well need to get more servers happening and virtualization put in place even putting virtualization within virtualization so the servers can run smoother unreal engines ment to one of the best servers how is it lagging and when well it be fixed double your capacities.

                                                                Can I have a link to the website or forum post that shows how many are in PVP and PVE.
                                                                I tried the PVP and I din't like it. The PVE is epic (no pun intended).

                                                                It'ld be nice to see if there is proof to your comment of if it was made up on the spot.

                                                                    Comment

                                                                      Comment

                                                                          also with UTC you avoid any and all DST problems, since UTC does not have DST, each country have its own DST (or not) acording to which hemisphere they are (north / south and its done on diferent/oposite time of the year)

                                                                          thank you

                                                                                I never said the game hasnt made improvements. It has, but recently they’ve done nothing but mess up playability with the updates.

                                                                                I would smoke a bowl, but I have this thing called a ‘big-boy career.’

So frustrating to see such a major change not even glanced over or mentioned anywhere except a few (player made) posts, and then those same posts fade into obscurity.

Every time I try to use one the stuff from it groups up in the middle right above it and the chest lags and still glows and every time I try to collect the items from it the game thinks I’m still trying to open it. This has gotten me killed on multiple occasions.

Legendary Stormblade, though its Rolls are not that good... but i'm not in any shape to be picky so i'm keepin it for now. Lookin like RNGesus flat out refuses to fork over any Legendary Lobber Survivors for me to get the Pumpkin Launcher so I guess I can kiss that goodbye... the one thing I wanted most... but i'll deal with it. The number one Stat a Fortnite Player needs the highest Score in is Hearbreak Resistance, & fortunately, mine's not ****. :(
