    After a couple of frustrating top 3 mess ups I had a tense shoot out at Loot Lake resulting in a VR! I have to say I’m enjoying this more on Switch than any other console at the mo. Having played this since release with an Xbox elite controller I’v enjoyed relearning to use a controller without paddles. My brain gets it wrong occasionally, but I’m getting there. If if anyone fancies some duos and squads add me up!

    Probably an Angel alt account or one of his suck ups.

    This is very true!

    I thinks it's the curse of bignige! Many months ago when Fortnite came out for Xbox I quickly signed up for an epic account so that I could link accounts. I chose bignige as my username without a thought. I've never ever posted on epic's forums - it was just a means to create an account. After a couple of weeks of playing Fortnite it would no longer load into an online game, it would just hang on the loading screen. At first I thought it was just Fortnite being buggy - after 3 weeks I decided to contact epic about it, they replied several weeks later.... Here's the reply: *Hi there, Apologies for the delayed response. Your Display Name was reported to us as being inappropriate. Due to the particularly egregious nature of your name, your account has been permanently banned. Any External Accounts linked to the now banned Epic Account will not be removed. This means you will not be able to link your External Account with any other Epic Accounts. SkribblrPrsn Player Support I contacted them on Discord and spoke to a really helpful person, explained the situation, mentioned my name is Nigel and said I was happy to change my account name if they unbanned me. They did it straight away. Fast forward to last week and the same thing is happening on the Switch (I can still play on Xbox, PC and iOS). When I originally bought a Wii (at launch), my chosen NNID was bignige and this has been carried over from Wii, WiiU, 3DS and Switch. Even though my screen name is NIGEL, I think somehow my NNID has set alarm bell ringing? The thing is I would happily change it, but Nintendo say it's impossible to do I think? It's 2004 all over again!

    First go on Switch and I get 10 kills and a Victory Royale before having my Switch account locked out of Fortnite. FML!

    Unlike the olympics skin, you get all the teams shown and can change player number by just buying either a male or female skin.

    There is a playground mode coming soon which lets you practice your building skills and mess around with friends. You can still get killed, but you'll get spawned back in.

    It seems to be. I've not checked his Switch yet as it's at his grans house. Will find out over the weekend. He's definitely never had the option via Xbox. OT, he's never been able to play SKATE 3 online with me either because of setting up his xbox as a child. Frustrating!

    Yeah, I made the mistake of staying up too. I found it quite embarrassing that of the all contestants interviewed only Joe Mchale knew who his chosen charity was! I agree about the Ninja thing too - more variety was needed in their coverage.

    I have noticed the option does sometimes disappear on my adult account (between updates), but on the childs account it has never been there. It doesn't help that Epic are mostly silent on the matter via their forums. If you find a work around do let me know!

    Confusingly there are two websites www.epicgames.com and fortnite.com make sure you are logged out of both. One will find your account based on email and I think the other tries to locate and link stuff together via you playing before on a console / pc/ iOS / not PS4. If you didn't create an account you could try using your console details to see if you can log in with these (if you skipped account creation the first time you loaded up via xbox etc). Once in your account you can link to console, twitch etc. I had this problem but it was several month down the line and I couldn't link my pc to xbox. I wanted to keep all my stats across all systems so contacted epic. I was told you get a silent account created if you skip registering. They had to merge this silent account with my xbox one which gave me access to everything. It was a total pain to sort though.

    If the xbox account is a child's account the option for cross platform on the xbox disappears. It's such a stupid and frustrating thing for them to do. Trying to change a child's xbox account to an adult account is a pain too. There are a lot of complaints about it on their forums. You could try raising a ticket via their forum.
  13. FORTNITE IS UP ON THE USA SHOP! THIS IS NOT A DRILL!!! (Couldn’t find it on UK shop)

    I think the April update is rolling out today. Have you checked system Settings for update? Maybe hard reset?
