Fortnite Leaves Gamers Furious as Server Issues Force the Game to Go Dark for Several Hours

Published 12/30/2021, 8:15 AM EST


Epic Games has found itself in a hot soup, as the issues with the servers continue to haunt the studio. Not so long ago, the Fortnite community reportedly experienced a global outage. Gamers and popular streamers all faced the same problem, as the Battle Royale title simply stated, ‘ You do not have the permission to play Fortnite’.

A similar problem also surfaced when Spiderman’s mythical web-shooters were added to the game. At that time, the server failed to keep things together in face of the over encumbering traffic.

Twitter reacts to Fortnite servers being knocked out

The studio’s investigation uncovered great results as the developers were able to finally bring the servers back up. However, this didn’t transcend very well on Twitter, as the community vociferously shared their opinions.

Popular streamer and content creator of the title, SypherPK jumped on the trend. He shared a tweet about the title being inactive and on his Instagram, he poked fun by suggesting the game might be dead.

Hypex claims the servers remained dead for 5 hours straight. That’s a very long time for the community and indeed served as a ticking time bomb for the game. Glad that the studio was finally able to address the problem, otherwise this would have been a bad way to end a fantastic year in 2021.

Everything burns and nothing remains, the situation was indeed serious and extremely comical. How did Epic Games manage to deal with this dumpster? The developers haven’t revealed anything just yet.

SypherPK continued to entertain the audience with his hilarious tweet, and this time he went back after the game taking away everyone’s productivity.

 

World Champion Fortnite player and one of the greatest solo champions, Bugha was unhappy with the server’s being shut. He reached to the community regarding the same.

This would be a bad way to end the game, as the title already had a fantastic year. Fans saw DC Comic saga, The Rock, Ariana Grande, and more.

Ninja is still pulling in big numbers without the Battle Royale game being active. He is not a dead streamer by any standard, regardless of what the community suggests.
