Epic Games has made "Fortnite Battle Royale" insanely popular with weekly updates and collaborations with other popular brands. The video game currently has over 250 million players all around the world, and it doesn't appear that it will stop being popular anytime soon. However, despite the huge success, the "Fortnite" creator has struggled to improve the game in certain areas, including server performance.

With millions of players playing "Fortnite Battle Royale" at the same time, it is necessary to have servers in major regions to make sure that players have the best possible experience. However, due to the nature of this game, it is sometimes hard to avoid lag, especially in the end game. Fortunately, it appears that Epic Games will do something about this as we could soon get more server locations for the popular game.

More servers considered by developer

Great server performance is a key for so many online games, especially popular ones such as "Fortnite Battle Royale." Unfortunately, Epic Games still hasn't found a way to reduce lag during tournaments and scrimmages. There are sometimes 30 or more players in the end game, which causes massive lag and makes the game almost unplayable. In these situations, players sometimes have to rely on their luck to avoid dying, which is not something that should happen in popular tournaments.

Epic Games developers have recently held the AMA (Ask Me Anything) on Reddit and they answered some important questions regarding the video game and its future. NG_Gaming, one of the Reddit users who participated in the AMA, asked the development team is there are any plans to bring Southeast Asia servers to "Fortnite Battle Royale." Colin Fogle, who is an esports designer for the game, answered the question, saying that the team is always assessing the potential for more servers.

"We are always assessing potential for additional Arena/Tournament server locations. The skill-based nature of matchmaking means we need more players from a region to create quality matches, and for tournaments, players need to hit a single server location for competition integrity reasons," is what Fogle answered. In addition, he said that only some locations have server availability for the "Fortnite" tournament.

Tournaments for smaller regions

The Epic Games employee said that there were plans to run occasional tournaments in smaller sub-regions. This is something that will be eventually added to the game, but there is no confirmed release date for it at the moment. These tournaments would be great for players who play in regions that do not have powerful servers or many players, including Southeast Asia, Africa, Oceania, and more.
