    Other updates of late;
    • Friendly fire has been switched off to combat rampant tk'ing.
    • Map glitches that could throw players into the 'underworld' where they could attack overworlders with impunity has been fixed.
    • And lastly, some media outlets claim that fortnite have been dl'ed 40mil times. Not sure on the source of that one, but hey its Rolling Stones mag - https://www.rollingstone.com/glixel...the-worlds-largest-battle-royale-game-w515421
    Also coming soon is the new bullet model.

    Any idea how long the deployment of the patch will take? The missus and I only got on to Fortnite today and have been enjoying it quite a bit

    Edit: a pretty decent session with some nice tips amongst the killing. Also the occasional swear word :)

    Absolutely loving this game on Xbone X.
    It's gotten me back into gaming after nearly a decade away.

    And man is it nice to look at on 75" at 4k. :thumbup:

    edit: just looked, I now have 180hrs in.

    New patch seems to have performance issues unfortunately :(

    One of the new items to be introduced in the patch is the impulse grenade...





    :D

    How hard is the construction etc. to pick up coming from PUBG? Does it play a big part in winning?

    How does it run, does it perform better/worse then PUBG?

    Does anyone play the vanilla game?

    Its a big part of the game. Its cover and its height, both of which are tactically important. Some do extremely well with the default layout (ie svennoss), I have 'f', 'c', and 'v' keys for my building keys.

    Note that you don't have 'prone' in Fortnite, just standing and crouch. Everything on the ground is destructible. Trees, bushes, rocks, buildings... including the buildings that players haven't made.

    Never played pubg, but I get 60fps most times on an old quad core AMD with an AMD 7850 on reduced settings @1080p. Twitch streamers with high end gear gets double/triple this... without having to reduce settings I guess. Ping times to the server is about 100ms (not sure why... this is on 100mb cable, but maybe the server is not in Australia... maybe its in New Zealand). The server tick rate is about 15-20 - I think I heard the devs saying they hope to be able to get it to 30 eventually.

    I used to. I bought Fortnite before the BR game mode came out. The BR game mode leaves it for dead though. Its been good for vbucks though, got the season 2 battle pass for vbucks earned in pve game mode. Not sure if the pve is that 'profitable' anymore.

    Obviously I don't know what turned you off Fortnite, but they are revamping the shooting model from rng inside a circle to probably something that is recoil based.

    I meant I looked at my FPS counter once and never gain. I haven't played it much at all, only downloaded it to play with one of my friends, but that change would be nice, as I'm not a fan of the RNG spread.

    And I imagine you not a fan of the third person view? I would prefer first person.

    Hope you have that TV on game mode & the TV has decent input lag or you aren't doing yourself any favors.
