Thanks guys. We'll look into it but I don't have anything to report back yet.

it is still happening. on PC it varies - but on mac, it never smaller than 2 gb - no matter what the update is.

We identified some of the root causes. I️ expect it taking a while though for patch sizes to be noticeably better as we have some large content changes coming up.

We were able to avoid having to patch for next weeks update and the silenced SMG will be a small download at game startup.

So the full enhancement update (ie: higher resolution) is coming the week after next week? Awesome!

I hope you guys find a way to achieve 60fps too. I assume you're CPU-bound right now.

We would love to be able to expose a 60 FPS option down the road. We need to get better at hitting 30 FPS reliably first and improve our process to avoid regressions.

I think they will expand the current map before making a new one


We like to party.

(Yeah, we can probably make some adjustments here.)

Happens to me and my friends too on a lot of ammo boxes that are sitting on top of the shelf.

Ok, I've seen this a couple times too. Thanks for calling it out - we'll look into it.

Hey sorry I'm late on this- thanks for the heads up! We've addressed a few of these issues in the latest patch. I'm playing regularly keeping an ear out for the others. :)

You should PM that info to him instead and delete identifying information in the post.

Thanks - I should have stated this explicitly! Thanks for catching and correcting :-)

What does that do if you can just make another account since the game is free with no real loss of anything?

Our systems for handling cheaters and repeat trolls are separate from how we deal with regular player infractions and first time offenses. Don’t want to go into detail, but it is something on our mind for the reason you are stating.

I was watching someone stream and after they died this was on screen. Anyone got a clue what it is?

It is debug text we use to track down issues. We will get that fixed - please ignore till then :-)

I bought 59,99€ worth of V-Bucks and did not recieve it. 52 hours in and still not a response even tough i included screenshots of the transaction and the email invoice. Does anyone know if they are super busy and what time i should expect? Or have they maybe lost my email

Sorry for your poor customer service experience :-( This is clearly not how we want to operate!

I will look into each instance if you respond with your Epic account display names and how you contacted support.

This shouldn’t happen - let me dig.

Definitely didn't see a framerate improvement on my Xbox One X even when the framerate was "unlocked". Any plans to implement a working version of the option in the future?

I believe plan is 1.9.1 which is scheduled to launch the week after Thanksgiving (next next week).

Xbox One X runs at higher visual fidelity than Xbox One version. We are however talking about providing more trade-offs between visual quality and performance.

Thanks for your response! 36ms ping for London (I live in London) and 46ms for Frankfurt.

Those should be similar to your in-Game ping displayed in region select menu. Are you using a firewall or proxy or VPN for certain traffic?

Originally posted by ImDestroyer

Have 892ms ping in Europe server I live in England and my wifi speed is solid 40mbps. Anyone else experiencing the same?

Can you check cloudping.info for your ping to London and Frankfurt locations?

Isn't there a punishment yet? I thought they're punishing teamkillers. Hopefully you reported them. That sucks.

We punish reported repeat offenders with temporary bans (3-7 days).

I know, I know, it takes 10 seconds to manage inventory on consoles. I’m not complaining, but it would be more convenient if it would swap the items like it does on PC instead of going out of hot bar and having to re equip it after it’s been replaced.

We have some changes coming to inventory UI in December... I would hope they are an improvement - we will iterate if they are not ;-)

Battle Royale Ps4 cursor
Originally posted by TrueFirefox

Is their any plans to fix the no cursor issue when using kb and mouse on ps4? Also keep the hate comments to yourself I dont care if your against kb and mouse, it is a intended feature by devs

Let me dig into that.

Serious question about the definition of "malicious" team killing: I play duos and squads exclusively with friends and if one of us is downed running in the storm, we've killed them to consolidate loot for those who will make it out. My teammates did the same to me on my request when i wasn't gonna make the zone. It's happened I think 3 times total over a few hundred games and neither time was "malicious" within our group. Are any of us at risk for getting banned for it? Will punishment or bans be determined solely based on user reports or do y'all track in other ways? (I understand if you don't reveal specifics of how you track it, more trying to get a better understanding of it). Thanks for all the work y'all do!

Can't be super specific for reasons you stated, but we are always working to improve in this area! Currently only targeting those bad intentioned and serial team killers.

We appreciate you!

How’s it going Fortnite friends,

We will be deploying a hotfix on Nov 20, around 9:00am Eastern Time in order to airdrop in the Silenced SMG ... and more! This hotfix will include a number of balance changes as well. What a pleasant surprise!

There will be no downtime and players will not be interrupted mid-match, so expect a silky smooth transition. Please keep an eye on our twitter for immediate updates.

Did someone say ... balance changes?

That’s right! Hotfix notes below:

  • Enabled Silenced SMG
  • --Can be found as a Common, Uncommon or Rare variant.
  • --This new SMG is Suppressed, making it the quietest weapon in the game.
  • Assault Rifle accuracy increased.
  • --ADS accuracy benefit increased by 33%.
  • --Accuracy penalty per shot decreased by 20%.
  • --Accuracy reset speed increased by 20%.
  • --Recoil reduced by 30%.
  • SMG damage increased from 12/12/13 to 14/15/16 for all rarities.
  • SMG magazine size increased from 25 to 35.
  • Tactical SMG damage increased from 14/15/16 to 16/17/18 for all rarities.
  • Adjusted SMG/Tactical SMG environmental damage to match base damage.
  • Rocket Launcher reload time increased by 10%.

Couple of questions;

  1. Is the PTR going to be PC Only?

  2. Will there be umbrella skins in the future?

  3. Over time, will you be adding more of the weapons from Save the World to Battle Royale?

  4. Is there any plans for different maps? Weather effect?

  5. Last one - Are you doing any Christmas themed stuff for BR like you did for Halloween?

Thank you guys again for the amazing support on this game!

  1. Yes, initially. But we'd love to run some kind of PTR on console as well
  2. Not yet determined
  3. Hopefully
  4. Yes, but we're improving the current map first
  5. Come on now, do you really want us to spoil all of our surprises? :)

Got Questions? Let us know for next time!

An associated cause of this may be network latency, if you're still seeing the message try resetting your connection!
