Fortnite Waiting in Queue: Epic Games Servers DOWN as players question what just happened (Pic: EPIC GAMES)
Fortnite players are currently experience huge waiting in queue errors whilst attempting to play Battle Royale.
No doubt a result of so many people playing the game during the recent Cube event that just took place.
Ironically though, if Epic Games thought they had a lot of people playing, it is tiny compared to the supposed 3 million+ people who tuned in on YouTube and Twitch to watch the Fortnite Event Live.
Although regular playlists have returned to the game, there are currently huge wait times to actually play the game at the time of writing.
According to a message online, Epic Games are attempting to fix the game servers by limiting the rate of people allowed to login to Fortnite to begin with.
It's not known though just how long this could take or indeed when it might resume normal service.
Stay tuned for updates, but in the meantime, read on for details on exactly what just happened.
What Just Happened in Fortnite?
Kevin the cube exploded.
Actually to be more accurate, Kevin the Cube seemed to cause some sort of singularity in the map and sucked everything around it into oblivion.
Once the Cube imploded, players were transported to a whole new area which seemed to be between time and space, where butterflies glowed in the air and send players back into the map when they were touched.
When players fell back into the map, a new location was present in place of Loot Lake – with standing stones now present in a monument to where the Cube once stood.
The Fortnitemares Finale Butterfly event seemed to be a cover for Epic to make yet more incremental changes to the map. introducing a sort of stone henge area to where loot lake once resided
What will come of this stone circle? We're definitely going to see it be the centre of more mysteries in the future – maybe it'll start to attract more changes and challenges as we reach the end of Season 6 and move closer to Season 7.
Once the event was concluded, as players probably know, players seemed to get logged out of their Epic account and needed to log back in to continue playing.
Stay tuned for updates…
