The Fortnite player I asked about it said, "It's the countdown to the gangbang at you mom's house, newb.  Maybe you'll get to meet your new daddy."

My son was glad to finally witness a fortnite event live, after getting disconnected every time for the last however many of them.

I watched this with him and was like "So it's just a giant version of some guy I've never heard of dancing while everyone runs around his feet, and then it ends? What was the point do that? Does it unlock anything? Do you get a cool item at least? Anything?"

"Newsflash! In a shocking update to our Fortnite coverage, it turns out that popular videogames are played mostly by teenagers, some of whom can be very juvenile and display poor manners."

I downloaded fortnite, played 3 games and won the third. Yay me. Then I deleted it and never had the urge to play again. Don't get why the kiddos all are obsessed with it.

I played one time, and won.

It was after the last countdown?  My son, who never really plays it either, was hyping this 2.0 thing up so much I said "Ok, I play Call of Duty, let me give it a shot"

So the screen got smaller and smaller.... I never saw other people, though I guess it started with 100, right?

It shrunk to its final circle and I saw 2 guys in the distance.  I shot them both and won the game!

Retired a champion!

Will I play a NEW version at the end of THIS countdown?

Holy fark the people in this thread. "It's stupid and pointless". No shiat, it's a video game welcome to the entertainment tab. "I played it won". farking congratulations. It's an FPS that will happen. Can you do it consistently? Probably not? If so prove it. Do it in duo's, do it in teams where it's not 1v1 at the end where your ass could've hid for most of them game, but instead 1v2 or 1v4. I swear you joyless farks will shiat on anything popular but go enjoy TF, HL, CoD, MoHA, or any number of the exact same shiat and act like those are better.

It's a free game. You only pay for the battle pass if you want or skins, none of which effects the game, and one time paying for the battle pass usually ends up meaning you get for free from then on. Again, it's  a FREE game where PS4, XBox, and PC can all play together so it doesn't matter what system a person has. It's a fun way to dick around and bullshiat with friends or family.

If you're getting shiat talked? That's on your ass. You can only hear 3 other people, and you can mute them all. Most people don't even mic up on random teams.

But keep talking shiat about a currently popular video game that continues to provide entertainment for free and in constantly changing ways. I'm sure you have much more important video games to play.

Just want to say I agree with the "funny". It's a ridiculous goddamn thing to rant about let alone take seriously. It's a video game, it's meant to be a time waster. As a Professional Wrestler used to say, "Either you like it, or you dont". Just have some farking fun folks, however you can, and try not to be so goddamned always negative.

Well it finally downloaded. I have no idea how to even start a game. Not a good sign.

Yikes!  Settle down, Beavis.

I was just joking saying that I never played before and accidentally won.  I wasn't insulting your favorite video game.  I'm sure you're much better than me!

Mugato: Well it finally downloaded. I have no idea how to even start a game. Not a good sign.


I didn't either, I needed my son to help me.  But for God's SAKE, whatever you do, do NOT ask Dibikadfor help!

I think his real name id Dave Fortnite, creator of Fortnite. I can't imagine being that passionate about anything. So I got it to start. Just a lot of people running around shooting each other *shrug*.

Fun, free game. Play it with my kid and my friends. I'm over 50. I do okay at it. Beats a lot of the paid content out there.

Just had an issue with Epic's downloader, which is apparently notoriously bad. There's a fix for it on YouTube. Borderlands 3 took all night to download. The DLC had taken a couple of hours to get to 80%. I applied the fix and got the last 20% in about 2 minutes.

I'm glad to hear that since I just got a new PC and was worried about the DL speed since I'll be getting Adobe Premiere soon.

It was the same with me. New comp and was wondering what was going on. It basically nerfed my entire internet. I've got 200Mbps dl speed with my provider, and when I was downloading my speed went down to less that 2Mbps network-wide. It was ridiculous. The fix was stupid easy, too.

The only thing I did was the copy/paste into engine.ini and changed the chunk to 5.

Older players were participating in this sort of shiat when Fortnite players parents hadn't even met yet.

It was easily the worst event they've done so far.
