"Fortneet" has become famous for its special events in the game, many of which coincide with real world celebrations. So, the game has its own new year event held, along with falling balls and clock fireworks when it is down.
But "Fortnite" has a global player base with over 200 million players around the world; which means that players in different time zones will see a new year at different times. The "Fortnite" creator Epic Games has come up with a simple solution, the New Year's ball in Fortune will fall to the top of every hour to keep computers at midnight in all 24 weather zones around the globe.
However, some players who were expecting the New Year in the early morning to play "Fortneet" were shocked when they saw the fireworks coming early for their time zone. When the ball falls into the "Strong", players are forced to dance for a few seconds, making a moment impossible to ignore. Several players rushed into social media to announce that the "Fortnite" celebration New Year's Eve disappeared early.
The honest mistake was secure, but the "Fortnite" community got upset with the answers to the "early" event, which caused a reaction to Epic Games. Co-founder and vice president Mark Rein gently crossed the players who believed the event was running in an early mistake.
"Do not you understand how time zones work or do you think it's your only time zone in the world?" Rein posted a tweet.
Epic spokesman Nick Chester and Rein later confirmed that the event would happen every hour to make computers for each time zone.
We hope that the event will teach how wide the "Fortnite" community extends and reminds us that the Earth revolves around the Sun, not around them.
