However, this array of events has led to major scheduling conflict that has led YouTuber Daniel "KEEMSTAR" Keem to announce that Week 11 of the UMG Friday Fortnite Tournament set to take place on July 20th has been canceled due to Epic Games scheduling a 500K Solo Tournament for its Fortnite Summer Skirmish Series on the same day.

At that time, we knew that there were errors with the matchmaking system the game uses.

With so many new titles featuring battle royale modes, including the upcoming Call of Duty and Battlefield, the genre's popularity keeps on growing. Players connect to the matchmaking service, the service assigns the player to a corresponding node in their region, and then automatically selects one of its available servers for the player of that region.

But if you don't want to play the game enough to unlock these perks, you can also purchase more V-bucks with real bucks, at a rate of 1,000 V-bucks for $9.99. The Playground mode is making matches for groups of one to four players at a time. This meant more matches were being made, requiring at least 15 times as many servers.

At launch, the game was available for PC and PlayStation 4.

To fix the problem, Epic says that it split Playground matchmaking into its own service cluster so that its problems wouldn't affect matchmaking for other modes. It was a few days later that Playground mode returned to Fortnite, and now Epic has delivered an update on just went wrong with that launch.

"The process of getting Playground stable and in the hands of our players was tougher than we would have liked, but was a solid reminder that complex distributed systems fail in unpredictable ways", the news release states.
