Today is a momentous day, a large step towards having custom matchmaking seems to be coming much quicker than anticiapted. Just recently, Fortnite tweeted out some of the community will be able to test out the custom matchmaking feature. If you’d like to check out this new feature, Twitch streamer DrLupo has the honour of being the first to test it out. This feature is currently only available on PC. Hopefully it makes it way to console in the near future.
Update: It seems like the only feature of custom matchmaking right now is password locking the match, so streamers can play with their viewers. Streamers are telling their viewers what type of game mode they want to play, and the viewers who join the custom match atest to the rule sets. An example of this would be a streamer telling his viewers to drop at tilted towers with only axes being used.
