Battle Royale OCE Duos Activated!
Originally posted by linkzao

Wasn't it supposed to be activated in Brazil right now?

Looking into this - I think we have an issue keeping Duos off in Brazil and we're working to resolve. Sorry :(

This should be fixed very shortly I believe and will update ASAP.

EDIT: This is resolved now. Sorry again for the delay here. Have fun!

If console players can plug in mouse and keyboard on Consoles, then you have to give aim assist for PC players who using a controller. Please reply if you rolled back it to all platforms or just only for consoles?

It should be platform agnostic.

Vocal minority strikes again... you know most people who liked the change are actively playing the game and not crying on reddit?

There were some real issues with the changes and they also impacted controller sensitivity, something we vowed not to change. We are going to introduce it as an option after some tweaks.

Aww man i was LOVING the sniping with this new setup.

Sniping needs to be addressed -- plan is for that to happen with next week's build (1.11)

Soooo snipers are back to being broken? Or does the fix remain?

Sadly back to being broken for another week :-/

Whoops! We dropped the ball on sensitivity and aim assist with this patch. We’ve heard you and have reverted sensitivity and aim assist back to how...

They were on twitter and the responses where along the lines of "You made a mistake and now you're trying to make us fix it!?".

I Was having more fun playing fortnite this morning then I have in a while, felt like the training wheels were finally off. I loved this update, sad to see it go.

We are going to bring it back as an option after some tweaks (and making sure that turn speed curves are identical). Current goal for that is next week.

Having to change and get used to a new sensitivity every patch is freaking annoying.

Totally agreed! To make matters worse, we didn't realize that sensitivity had changed as our stated goal is to NOT do that.

Is this an immediate hotfix or will we be waiting for a patch?

Should be live as of 1:35 PM ET.

So it's immediately back in the game now? I won't have to update or anything?

We luckily had the ability to toggle between the systems via our "hotfix" system which doesn't require a regular client update.

Battle Royale Xbox connection issues

Update: Everything looks like it’s back to normal for all you Xbox players. Get out there and tell us what you think about update V.1.10!

It looks like some players on Xbox may be experiencing some connection issues. We're diving into this now to investigate and will keep all of you updated!

We’ve had a troubled history with controller sensitivity. We promised we would do better. We did NOT do better. ...

We’ve had a troubled history with controller sensitivity.
 
We promised we would do better.
 
We did NOT do better.
 
In our v1.10 patch this morning at 4 AM we made an adjustment to Aim Assist that inadvertently changed controller sensitivity.
 
We have heard your feedback on the changes, and know Aim Assist doesn’t feel great for everyone. To immediately address this and the controller sensitivity impact, we will be rolling back to how Aim Assist and controller sensitivity functioned prior to the v1.10 patch.
 
For those of you who enjoyed the changes to Aim Assist, we will include it together with some tweaks as an option in a future build!
 
Our sincerest apologies.
 
UPDATE: this change is live

Sensitivity sliders for the mouse and gamepad will now stop at 0.1 instead of 0.0.

Hope they mean 0.01 for mouse not 0.1 because my sens is 0.04 and I don't want it changed again.

To clarify, this will appear correctly as 0.01 in-game. We are going to be adjusting patch notes to correctly reflect this. :)

Can't wait to replenish my shields.

Battle Royale OCE Duos Activated!

That’s right folks, they’re finally here - Oceania Duos have been activated! Just a reminder to visit /r/FortniteRoyaleLFG to find friends! Enjoy, folks! It’s been a long wait, but we can finally enjoy Duos. Please direct all discussion here, as to avoid duplicate posts.

Hey friends, Sorry for lack of heads up on this, but final plans got solidified and executed late last night. We didn't want to announce this as incoming until we were 100% sure it all worked as expected. Basically, Duos should now be available in OCE, ASIA, and Brazil server regions during their respective "peak hours". Each region has a slightly different overall curve from peak to offpeak due to geo/timezones and such, so that total available time range might look a little bit different from region to region.

We will be keeping an eye on this and tweaking as needed. Ideally, we want to keep expanding the time range that Duos is available.

Here are the time ranges per region where duos should currently be available:

Oceania 12:00 AM - 7:30 AM EST // 5:00 AM - 12:30 PM UTC Asia 3:00 AM - 1:00 PM EST // 8:00 AM - 6:00 PM UTC Brazil 9:00 AM - 12:00 AM EST // 2:00 PM - 5:00 AM UTC

Thanks for your patience on this. I know this has been a pain point for folks and it took us longer than we'd like to get a solution in place that would be a net positive outcome.

Have fun!

Nothing has changed with fall damage. If you're experiencing some kind of abnormal behavior, please send us a clip.

I finally have some closure to my request now I will be able to sleep at night, also weekly reminder /u/DanDaDaDanDan

It turns out that this is a surprising amount of work - it is on the list, but not on the schedule yet which means it won’t happen this year :-/ Sorry!

And we're live! Thanks for your patience everyone.

Matchmaking has been taken offline and we are getting ready to deploy patch V.1.10.
