Every week, Epic Games release some sort of update for their mega-popular Fortnite Battle Royale title, but with the v11.11 update scheduled to launch on November 12, there is currently no sign of it on any platforms.

Epic Games use the weekly update model to help keep their game fresh, releasing major patches that add new weapons, items, or points-of-interest to the map, while often fixing some frustrating bugs that are affecting the title.

These updates generally release every Tuesday, but on November 11, the developers confirmed that they were delaying the patch in a tweet posted on their official Fortnite Status account.

Epic GamesFortnite fans were eagerly awaiting the new update until the delay was announced.

Where is the Fortnite v11.11 update?

On November 11, Epic Games confirmed that they would be releasing the v11.11 update for the game, stating that it would launch on November 12 at 4:00 AM ET (8:00 AM UTC) on all platforms.

Just two hours later though, a second tweet went out that confirmed the patch had been postponed, and Fortnite fans would not be waking up on Tuesday morning with a brand-new patch to sink their teeth into.

When is the Fortnite v11.11 update being released?

Unfortunately, Epic Games have yet to announce when the v11.11 update will officially go live, with no confirmation in their tweet regarding the postponement. 

The developers add new Missions to the game every Thursday, so it’s likely we will see the update drop on November 14 ahead of the release of new challenges, although it’s possible that they could choose to set it live on Wednesday, November 13.

Why is Fortnite v11.11 delayed?

The reason behind the delay remains unknown at this time, but Epic have been forced to postpone updates in the past after finding major bugs or glitches that would seriously affect gameplay, in an attempt to address and fix them before it goes live. 

This update includes some major changes for Save The World, plus bug fixes for all of the game’s core modes, so it’s likely that an issue was discovered, and the developers are aiming to fix it before releasing it to the world.

NickEh30’s latest Fortnite tournament was quite a spectacle, but it was tainted by an alleged stream sniper, who was reported and subsequently banned despite maintaining his innocence.

Nick ‘NickEh30’ Amyoony has been hosting a series of Fortnite tournaments in recent months. The latest one was the NickEh30 Cup. It gave players a chance to compete against some of the game’s biggest names in the scene for a chance to win $10,000.  

It was all positive for the most part. A lesser-known professional Fortnite player named  Crumble managed to impress and take home the prize. However, the tournament was marred with some unfortunate stream sniping drama.

NickEh30 Fortnite stream sniping ban

In the final match, several other players landed on NickEh30, including a Twitch streamer named ArchieFN. He eliminated NickEh30 and danced on his body for the better part of 30 seconds.

NickEh30 was less than impressed and looked disappointed and deflated on stream. It was a stark contrast to his usual upbeat and positive vibe. He was convinced ArchieFN was stream sniping and hopped into the replay mode to report him and a few others.

Fortunately, Epic Games responded almost instantly and banned ArchieFN for 24 hours as soon as he returned to the lobby. You can watch a full recap of the incident below and form your own opinion.

However, ArchieFN is maintaining his innocence. He claimed he wasn’t stream sniping at all. Instead, he said he wanted to “contest someone who wasn’t a tier-one pro” and decided to land on NickEh30 after seeing him land in the same spot during a previous game.

Still, he apologized for what he did and acknowledged that some might find it “scummy.” Sadly, that didn’t stop him from copping a bit of abuse, some of which was needless and extreme.

“Why am I waking up to 600 DMs telling me to kill myself?” he said. “I’m 20, and it doesn’t bother me at all, but the majority of the community is quite younger … you really need to think about what you’re saying to people on the internet.”

In the end, ArchieFN’s Fortnite ban won’t last more than a day. It isn’t too long to wait if he’s innocent, but it’s enough for a wake-up call if he’s guilty.

Either way, The NickEh30 was a success despite the stream sniping drama, and a rightful victor was still crowned.
