Developers acknowledged that the systems of the game have only seen improvements because of a crowded user-base making them aware of each fault one by one. From stats to servers all has been put to its place in efforts of making the gaming experience of millions of players easier.

Fortnite can now certainly be listed in the most elite video games because before this battle royale game took the gaming industry by storm. Games like League of Legends and Minecraft have been considered the untouchables because their count of users was numbered at unreal figures.

Minecraft was known to have reached 74 million players in a month whereas League of Legends was seen having over 100 million players in 2016 alone. Now that Fortnite is making its entry to newer ports like on Nintendo Switch and Android consoles the numbers are only ever going to grow for the hottest game in the market right now.

If this Fortnite madness carries on, the previous records are going to keep getting smashed one after another. The popularity of the game has even seen a regular streamer of the game make it to the ESPN magazine cover.
