Personally, I feel they should grant a perm buff for the remainder of the mission. Then (and only then) would I seek out them almost every mission.

This is solid feedback everyone, thank you. I'll be sure to relay this sentiment over to the Devs. :)

This means when you are in the pregame lobby(the ready up screen) then you can hear people. Only friends can join you in that lobby and you have the option to kick screamers or set your lobby to invite only. :)

I filled in the online form and emailed support to change my Epic email address but no reply. I need to change my email address. 😭

Did they respond with the proper steps you need to take? If you've taken those steps and are still having issues lemme know. Hit me up with a private message to continue this lovely conversation. <3

You definitely will. Thank you so much for your direct role in resolving the issue. I’m sure you didn’t have to and you still reached out. It means a lot to both me and my brother.

Awww, shucks...you hit me right in the feels. :)

Bought the game on my kids account on the xbox thinking the perks of Deluxe would be on both. Wrong.. So I just played with the kiddo's gamertag not caring. I did play a week on mine though so I have two xbox profiles with fortnite progress but I never linked either to an epic account. Is it possible to swap the epic accounts from one xbox gamertag to the other by linking them to epic somehow? Is it safe? Already lost storm shield storage once, don't want it dinged up again. Thanks.

This is something that support should be able to help you with in regards to swapping the progress from one XB account onto the other. Just open a link here and explain the situation to them and they should be able to help.

Currently, there is no cross progression from XB accounts and PC accounts. You are also right to ask because currently if you attempt to link a console account with progress on it to a fresh PC account then the console accounts progress will be wiped and you will need to contact support to get that resolved.

Hello Devs and Heroes:

What does everyone think of allowing players to use skins they already have unlocked for characters that are the same. As well as skins for pickaxe that we have already unlocked or purchased. I will give examples below. I have a few different ideas which I would like implemented. My ideas below are connected to both the PvE and PvP aspect of the game which will increase the likelihood of players playing both, which is more money for epic and more stuff for players. Win-win scenario so please hear me out.

  1. I have a legendary dragon scorch ninja but I like the skin of the epic one better. I would like to be able to change my legendary dragon scorch to the epic skin since I previously had the epic and evolved it to legendary with flux. Same thing with all other heroes and their available skin. Having the option to interchange skins in nice.

  2. I bought some skins in the PvP store both for heroes and pickaxes. I would like to be able to use them in PvE if it is the same character model. For example if I have the Urban Assault skin from PvP let me use that skin if I am using the same character model in PvE. Also allow us to use pickaxes from the PvP store in PvE don't really think that would negatively affect gameplay.

  3. This one is similar to number 2. If I have skins in PvE through the heroes that I have unlocked or pickaxes that I have unlocked allow us to use it in PvP. It might even pull some PvP players to StW just to unlock skins. I am talking about all skins not just soldiers. So Ninjas, Constructors and Outlander skins. All of which are not available in PvP currently.

  4. Just another little something. I would also like to be able to use the emotes that I have from BR in StW. I also don't think that should mess anything up too badly lol.

If people want to know what hero their teammates are using you can always add it to the pre-game menu over the characters if that's something that players require.

I would like to see a similar menu that BR currently have where you can pick and choose the skin, pickaxe, glider and emote you are using.

I figured since we are sharing servers we might as well be able to share skins, emotes and pickaxes right. What is that old saying. Sharing is caring ;)

Thanks for reading have a great day!!!

Edit: For the players that don’t like the idea or downvoting could I possibly request for your reasoning? I’m just curious no hard feelings at all. I just figured since it’s strictly cosmetic that it wouldn’t hurt anything.

I've had a bunch of people asking for things like emotes, dancing and other fun features from BR and have sent this up to the Dev team. We hear you and will make sure to update all of you once we have that info to share. :)

Hi guys,

First off, congratulations for the great game. Been playing for only 10 days but I'm quite addicted to it.

I'm playing both StW and BR but one thing really bothers me and I haven't seen a post about it recently so, let me please ask Epic again to have a controller setup option to synchronize controls between PvE and PvP.

For me simply being able to use the same layout of Battle Royale in PvE would suffice but a middle term alternative works as well.

What doesn't work currently is the fact that as you get better and faster in one control you start getting worst in the other. That doesn't make sense at all. Building is the most affected part as without the use of L1/R1 building in PvE is so much different than in PvP that I simply stopped doing it otherwise I would start messing up constructions once I played BR again.

I don't care if I have to unbind other buttons such as skills, or bind them to the analog arrows or lose a couple functionalities, being able to build in the same way on both modes is a priority for me and I believe many other players. Please have something like that in the future.

Thank you.

I know one of the biggest requests I see are better options for building on controllers as well as possibly a "Combat Pro" setup option. I've gone ahead and sent this sentiment on over to the Dev team and will be sure to update all you wonderful players once I have more information. :D

Hey there! So I've noticed some posts about this and have gone ahead and sent this up to our QA team for investigation. Once they've done some digging and have some information to share I'll be sure to create a post to update everyone. :)

After posting about my brothers issue with his account, u/MrPopoTFS stepped in and saved the day. My brother got his account reinstated and the Epic team apologized for the delay and reimbursed him for his time and effort. So I’d like to say a big thank you to u/MrPopoTFS for his help and expediting the resolution. Thank you!

I just wanted to drop by and say it was a pleasure helping you and your brother with this issue. I'm super happy to see he was taken care of by Support and reimbursed for any troubles. :)

Hope to see you both out there!

For real. I understand that there are limitations to the building system, and thus areas of uneven elevation will have issues with building. However, extended areas of flat ground should absolutely line up better with the building grid. When you place a wall, it needs to be at least chest high, not ankle high.

We agree :)

Originally posted by agoracy

There are multiple places on the map where this happens, also locations where your walls/ramps get placed up in the air, allowing rockets to hit you from underneath. I think this should be a priority considering building is a major feature of the game, but I am confident you guys are already handling that.

Edit: When I say "placed in the air" they are being placed above ground, without being attached to another adjacent structure.

If you can point out other specific areas where this happens, that would be helpful! It'll take some time, but we'll add them to the list.

Heya Folks,
 
We've been seeing some confusion or just general questions about the Event store and with the Survive the Holidays event ending, want to provide some clarity:

  • Event store is not just a part of the winter event - it is a permanent feature!

  • The ‘Weekly Section’ will continue to rotate and always have items (may change periodically, p.s. Flux will be around for a while)

  • The ‘Event Section’ will usually have items, but not always (i.e. smaller events, but may persist from major events)

  • Daily Coins do not reset

  • We are going to experiment with “Seasonal Gold” we are going to let it run through the next Storm event and likely reset it the event after. We’ll keep you posted on the results of our data.

    • We’ll give you folks a heads up before the reset as well!

 
If you have any other questions drop ‘em in the comments below.

For those wondering, the Global Inventory feature will also be coming back once we work out the kinks! :)
