Hey! Here's a video that shows you exactly how to send your friend codes, and how your friends can redeem them!...

I can understand why some people feel this way. You go into a zone with a goal of doing something like getting through quickly so you can get the time bonus, then realize someone is either farming or on a quest line where they've got to spend some amount time doing something else. If it's your co-op friend you play with, you're probably able to talk through how best to do both things at once. If it's random players, it's less likely to happen. So sometimes those differing goals will end up with an experience different than what you expect. As a general philosophy, we prefer giving more tools to experience shared goals rather than only punishing folks (though there are clearly some examples where someone can be a pain just for the sake of doing it). Even in this thread there are some examples of players not realizing they are doing a thing that might frustrate someone else. So that's something we've got to work on and continue to provide solutions.
I feel your pain here. Like a lot of you, I'm working through Plankerton and have had those instances where I jump into a zone and end up building (and sometimes even defending) on my own while teammates farm or complete other objectives. The advice of going private to farm is good and I think it's something we should all try to do. And of course, the best way to enjoy Fortnite is to find a great group of people to play with. Then you have some shared goals, communicate well, and end up with a better overall experience. I've made a lot of friends playing Fortnite over the last couple of years so I can typically go in and find what I'm looking for. But I do play a lot on my own to better understand what it might be like for someone who doesn't have a 24/7 co-op group to roll with. Even for those of us who do have friends in the game, you can't always get that full group you want due to differing schedules and availability. On the Fortnite team we care a lot about making sure players can opt into an experience that's ideal. So it's a thing you'll see us improve over time during Early Access. There are some basic tools (like global chat, calling for SSD help) that can help some with this, but there's a lot of room for improvement. As a community, I'd also love for us to figure out what we might be able to do to better connect players to each other so we can group with folks who have those shared goals. We'll continue to make that a focus for the game. If there are also some ideas how to do it as a community, I'd love to help get behind those and boost them in any way possible.
This bug is on the list to fix soon. Sorry about it causing lag! Thanks for taking the time to post.

Fortnite Oops, Sorry bro!
I laughed out loud.
That's correct. Though, if you can't log in, that's no good! Reach out to us at help@fortnite.com so we can figure out what's going on. It may also be that restarting the console will help, if you haven't already tried that.
