Another Fortnite pro has commented on the amount of lag that was present in Week One of the Fortnite Fall Skirmish.

Liquid Poach discussed the situation in a recent stream, claiming the tournament was “unplayable.”

“We’re trying to rotate safely and every single time we are screwed by lag,” said Poach.

The storm circle is one of the bigger issues in the game, with server lag making players unable to accurately tell where the closing circle actually is.

Poach and his partner Vivid finished in 23rd place out of 50 teams.

He also disagreed with Epic continuing to push their esport tournaments despite the server problems.

“I can’t believe there’s money involved with [Fortnite tournaments] right now. It’s not ready. It’s just not playable. It’s literally just not playable.”

A number of Fortnite pros and streamers have commented on the lag situation, including Ninja and Timthetatman.

Lag has been an issue that Epic has publicly struggled with since the beginning of their esports competitions, even forcing the cancellation of the first Summer Skirmish tournament.

Week Two of the Fall Skirmish is scheduled to take place on September 29.

Fortnite Season 4 is now entering its final week, but before it wraps up, you’ve got one last batch of Challenges to get through in order to claim some huge last-minute experience.

After what feels like forever, the current Marvel-themed takeover is about to reach its conclusion. Galactus is hurtling towards the map, and the Nexus War is finally set for a major in-game event on December 1.

If you’re worried that you might not have time to fill out your Battle Pass before then, fear not. Epic Games has come through with more XP boosts this week than any week prior. You’ll be able to catch up and finish things off in no time thanks to this week’s XP Xtravaganza Challenges.

From where you’ll need to go and what you’ll need to do, we’ve got everything broken down. Here’s how you can complete Week 14’s XP offerings.

Foil skins for the current Marvel lineup will soon be gone forever.

There are a whopping 12 Challenges to get through this week, plenty to keep you busy. Many of these can be kept in the back of your mind while you focus on some of the more tricky ones. However, there’s nothing too complex here, so you should be able to get them all done in barely a few hours of playing.

Some Challenges ask you to use certain weapons and items. Be sure to track down Assault Rifles and Boogie Bombs in every game while keeping an eye out for vehicles as well.

One unique task requires you to keep your full health bar intact along with full shields. Obviously, this might need you to camp things out and play it safe. Eight minutes is the set time so try to find a safe spot, barricade yourself in, and wait this one through.

For more casual Challenges like fishing from a motorboat or riding zip lines to and from Upstate New York, your best bet could be to drop into some Team Rumble. Trying these in the standard Battle Royale playlists might prove frustrating. The full list of Week 14 Challenges can be found below.
