Earlier problems

Online servers for the highly favorite shooter game, "Fortnite" was earlier down for a brief time. Players naturally took to social media platforms to post complaints regarding the same.

It was discovered that the faulty server prevented players from operating "Fortnite," altogether. ‘Fortnight’ developer soon came to the rescue by deploying a fix for the same. They stated that they discovered a problem in the game’s social feature, due to which, players were unable to operate the ‘matchmaking’ option with their friends.

They couldn’t even view their friends as online or offline.

"Fortnite" developers took to their official Twitter Account to confirm the news. In the tweet, they encouraged players to operate the game normally again, as they had fixed the issues relating to social features of the game. The developers claimed that "Fortnight" servers were now “fully functional.”

Interestingly, this isn’t the first time that such a problem has occurred with the servers of "Fortnite." In fact, it is a recurring one.

Reports suggest the main reason why there was a fault in the social system of the game was due to an unprecedented rise in the number of players. This rise led the servers to crash inevitably. As a result, the overall player experience of "Fortnite" was compromised.
