However, shortly after launch the Playground was closed, leading to complaints from players and pressure on Epic Games to fix the issue. The battle royale styled game is free-to-play, but that hasn't stopped Epic Games from swimming in money. Fortnite is the number one streamed game in the world by far, which has led Epic Games to start their own eSports league. Now we know, more specifically, that the issue is related to how many matches the Playground mode made versus the Battle Royale mode.
These factors, accompanied by the "amount of dense building that occurred late in the matches" really affected the server performance to the point that players could not move properly.
Epic explains that Fortnite's matchmaking service (MMS) relies on nodes that put players in open servers that match their requested regions.
Fortnite is usually offline between one and three hours, so players will be hoping Epic Games will turn the servers back on before 11am.
What this meant was the nodes were continuously requesting to join servers, requesting extra servers, and overall taking 15 times longer to check for available servers. Epic had to spend a lot of time testing this solution in cycles that took several hours to complete each time, but it says that testing ensured Playground mode - or any of Fortnite's various modes, for that matter - would be able to handle a rush of players in the future.
"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.
"We planned and prepared for what we thought to be the maximum sustained matchmaking throughput and capacity based on the size of our player base (plus a healthy buffer), but didn't properly anticipate the edge-case of the initial "land rush" of players exhausting local lists", the company said.
