Fortnite addresses server problems and long queue times after 50 vs 50 mode is added
Fortnite

Fortnite has been experiencing some server problems and players have been waiting for long periods of time to enter the game after a new mode was launched this week.

The server issues have come after Epic Games introduced its limited time 50 vs 50 mode, which is proving to be hugely popular with Fortnite players.

The new Battle Royale playlist was made available on the 8th December and will continue to be playable until 17th December.

Friendly fire is turned off in the 50 vs 50 games and players can revive any of their 50 teammates.

As well as long waiting times, gamers have also been having problems connecting with their friends within the game.

We know you've all been patient with the Friends and Connection issues we've been experiencing. Just wanted to drop in and say we should have a more in-depth update coming soon!

Epic Games has addressed the issues over the last 24 hours and carried out maintenance which should have resolved most of the problems players were experiencing.

If players are still having problems with queue times, they may find it useful to quit the game and attempt to load it again to see if this reduces the waiting time.

In a recent update, Epic Games said ‘Players should once again be able to connect with friends. Notifications, Stats(being backlogged) and Global/Founder chat will remain disabled for now.’
