I wish there were more animals!

 

I agree with this!

 

I have tamed both the Wolves and Boars which seems to be a pointless endeavour like hiring an AI to escort you places.

 

Finally, dropped a pearl into the Spire and got the Boots, not much except for the triple jump allows you to pull your glider.

 

Really not worth the effort carrying that pearl from a mini tower to the Spire just for that.

Couple of games now, including a 13 kill 2nd place :quote:, player edited what I thought was my floor as we ran from the storm! No idea what the weapons are like but I hate the bows, and can confirm the scar still works just fine.

Boom! unlucky that is an amazing kill streak.

Some help from a parental point of view please!

 

Daughter (11) plays Fortnite on the Switch, with an 'unnamed' account. She desperately wants some new skin pack (950 vBucks). No idea how I might purchase something on her behalf.

 

I'm guessing I need to upgrade her unnamed account to a full Epic Games account for starters.

 

Any ideas how I get from there, to then being able to buy the vBucks? I failed miserably previously trying to get her to play cross-platform Minecraft with her mates, I'm dreading a similar experience here.

 

Thanks!

When you play fortnite without an epic games account it's called a headless account, you can just buy vbucks in the game or via the nintendo e-shop and they will be linked to the headless account, if you then sign in using the switch credentials on https://www.epicgames.com/fortnite/en-US/home it will let you create an epic account for it so you can then play on other devices etc with that account.

It’s worth doing the epic account and setting up 2FA from a security point of view and account recovery too.

 

If you create an account on the website and then link the Nintendo account from the Switch that should sort it out :)


Don’t create an Epic account first - do it the way @gooner4life said, go to the Epic website, it’ll ask if you’ve played Fortnite before and on what platform. Then the accounts will be linked automatically. (The “headless” account already exists, you see, so if you create another one from scratch, you *might* run into issues merging it with the Switch account.)

Ah sorry, I did it the way I said for my 2 and assumed that was the way.

Thanks - my worry there is my daughter is 11, as I’m unsure if that’ll just balls everything up. Obviously she can’t do anything via the e-shop, even if she were to sign into it. 
 

I’ll give it a bash after work and see what happens.

The eshop let’s you use your credit card to buy things on a child account (presumably linked to the fact you are named as the supervisor).

 

You just log in and buy something and put your card details in, system doesn’t store them but the transaction will go through.

 

I have done this on both my kids accounts for vbucks

Yep if you’ve set up a family account, it’s dead easy to buy them vbucks.

 

 

If you’ve not got a family account set up you might have to get them a gift card - better to have the family account set up though.

Sorry, Nintendo family account or Epic family account?

 

I’m starting to feel what it’s like to be an elderly person staring at a smartphone.

Nintendo family account, Epic do not have family accounts.

 

To be honest, it's dead easy to buy the vbucks whether it's a family account nintendo side or not, just buy an E-Shop gift card or make a top up using your debit card on the switch but dont save the card details to avoid any accidental/impulse purchases and buy the vbucks.

 

When you can just login to epic games website as above using the Switch/Nintendo Online login and that will create a 'head' for the current headless Epic account, you dont have to do that before you buy vbucks, you dont have to do it ever, the only benefit is if you ever lose that Nintendo account you have a separate Epic account you can login to.

Little video of my son playing earlier.


Your son is very good, I wish I would stop being match made with people of his ability - I’m 43 and can barely cope with the speed of his edits in a video let alone trying to do them or play against them!!!

You’re telling me @Shimmyhill he thinks everyone in my matchmaking is a bot player, he just kills them so easily, I really wish I could get even half as good, it’s not just the dexterity in fingers, it’s the speed of thought, at one point in that clip he places a ramp inside a box and one pumps the guy because the ramp is see through as the other player is blocking it placing properly so the other player got confused couldn’t build and just waits for a headshot.

Spectacular stuff @gooner4life, I felt sorry for his opponents - they never stood a chance!

 

 

My eldest’s pretty good, when he’s rushing enemies he’s practically travelling in a mobile box, never exposed. Boggles my mind. But that was next level!

My 11 year old boy when we first started playing liked running around collecting loot, but the first sign of an opponent and he’d throw me the controller. Now he’s loads better than me. Him and his friends spend hours in creative having box fights. I remember telling him years ago that he’d one day be better than me and he didn’t believe me.  I guess at that age you’ve got the dedication and patience to practice building for hours. The same thing is happening on rocket league, he’ll spend hours in training. Bet I could still beat him at COD though(he’s not played it yet :lol:). 
 

I played my first few matches of the season last night. It’s a lovely looking game on the Series X. Oh and I loved the Ryu cameo in the opening cinematic, actually made me lol :lol:

The kids who spend time in creative box fighting will absolutely dominate this game for years, my son used to regularly spend weekends just building in creative, practicing edits, putting training dummies in a box in certain positions and hitting edits to get right hand peek and then jump and pump them, it's got such a high skill gap, just a phenomenal game, hard to think how it was born out of save the world in a couple of weeks.

Not really feeling this season so far :(

 

 

The crafting just adds an extra layer of faff for me, and an extra set of resources to gather that I can’t usually find. Bows just aren’t doing it for me; even if I manage to make a decent one, and upgrade it, it never seems to be worth it. They’re so much less useful than a sniper; less accurate, less damage, you’re more exposed while using one.. just give me snipers back please :(

 

 

It doesn’t feel quite as bad as the season with the brutes - that was a real misstep - but it’s the first one since then where I’m just not enjoying the new stuff. Maybe it’ll get better as I get more used to it, but for now it’s frustrating.
