Fortnite has finally revealed how they will compensate players for the downtime experienced last week. The compensation will be the following:

Battle Royale:

  • 20 Battle Stars toward your Battle Pass progression

Save the World:

  • 1600 Seasonal Gold you can use in the Event Store

If you have already maxed out your Battle Pass, Epic is working on a different way to compensate you.

Let us know in the comments section below what you think of the compensation.

Crap. Catered for people that spent money. Hate when devs do this.

*** Free or not everyone wants to play with their friends and this is an issue that has lasted several days. they should reward a free random skin or something to all players having to go through this. ****

I’d usually agree with you but, this game is free to play. So shut up.

How come? You didn’t need to spend any money for this to benefit you, everyone can complete tiers, you just get more items when buying the battle pass.

Don’t think the Battle Royale compensation is good for people with max tiers!

How is this fair for everyone just wondering because I worked hard to max out and haven’t been able to play but I don’t get anything just because I play your guys game a lot, seems great it would be nice if I could just get the 20 next season.

PLease one hundred or so v-bucks to compensate for a maxed battle pass.

I already have my battle pass maxed out to 70. I personally think for the players who don’t that it’s a great idea. For us who have finished, I was thinking an exclusive cosmetic or vbucks.

This is absurd the people who HAVE FINISHED THE BATTLE PASS ALREADY ARE THE ONES PUT THE MOST TIME INTO THIS GAME! Why don’t you focus more on the active true player than the casual player who hasn’t spent any money on this game or that,s only level 30 on the battle pass who wont be able to finish the tiers completely. Very dissapointed in this

Sounds good, V Bucks for those of us with Max Stars would be cool, we should dedication by maxing =D I have Save the World as well and you get free V Bucks from missions so it couldn’t be that big of a problem Epic?!

20 estrellas para el Battle Pass muy poco
Uno avanza 4 o más en el dia , y ellos están dando poco , con cada misión que me dan ago eso rápido yo , tendría que dar algo mejor , más estallar 50 , o una skin o/y 200vBucks , porque es necesario para poder comprar una skin o algo mejor .
Ojala que repiensen las cosas y nos den algo mejor los que tenemos el Battle Pass claro y los que no tienen el Battle Pass deben ser compensados tambien.
Gracias.

I think this is great compensation, I play both portions of the game and think this is more than fair. Great job, the compensation is much appreciated!

It’s a bit nuts consider g game is free but it really should come down to what their you are and how long is left of the season.

Give players a small amount of V-bucks each tier after tier level 70? Or also give players a small amount of V-Bucks in general…ex: 20 V-Bucks for being in the top 20 of a game,
50 V-Bucks if you win (for all game modes/for each player).

As someone who joined in on the Battle Pass halfway through the season, I’d appreciate the 20 Battle Stars. Though, for those of us who play on PlayStation we were locked out of the game for nearly two full days. On average I earn two to three tiers a day, which means the compensation provided by Epic Games would not cover what I and a number of other players lost. 40 Battle Stars would be completely satisfactory. Though, I would be happy to be given any compensation.

i believe we should get alot more than 20 cause the constant lags and glitches players that helped(by paying) expect the game to run smoothly at least for a few days without issues come on.

20 stars? What does that equal up too? 2 tiers?

Anthony Verduchi

For the people who have maxed out the battle pass, such as myself. We should either receive points to level up. I lost almost 2 days of playing and just reached level 80 and i should be 85. Considering it was on a weekend we lost our time I couldn’t level up as much as I wanted too. Or we should receive v-bucks or maybe a free skin, pick-axe, or glider.

Not crying about a free game

Maybe they could make a crybaby skin for the crybabies !!! It’s just like any other early access game ,it has a few problems to be worked out and we shouldn’t complain about downtime on a free game when they are working on the problems . Maybe everybody should of paid for the game instead of getting it free . Then we would all have reason to cry ,!! And yes I bought the game but oh well it’s a game . Play another game during downtime . Some of the downtime we had was the ps Network and had… Read more »

Its a really bad idea. 2 tiers or nothing is the same. And what the max tiers will get ? Nothing.

Viper

Personally I don’t think 300 vbucks is good enough compensation, what about the people who haven’t bought anything? Give at least enough to get something that isn’t two battle pass tiers.

Gove v bucks or them stars to go to next months battle pass.. and what about the people that are like 2 lvls away on their battle pass( like me… dont want my compansation to go toward something i can finnish easy the next 20 days.. i mean this most be the worst kind of compansation becouse it only helps people that dont play that much….
