"Fortnite" has become well known for its special events in the game, many of which coincide with real world holidays. So of course the game has its New Year event going on, complete with a drop of a fireworks ball for when the clock strikes midnight.
But "Fortnite" has an international player base with more than 200 million players worldwide; Which means that players in different time zones will see the New Year at different times. "Fortnite" creator of epic games has come up with a simple solution, the new year ball "Fortnite" will drop at the top of every hour to explain the midnight in all 24 time zones around the world.
However, some players who spent the first few hours of New Year's Eve playing "Fortnite" were horrified to see the fireworks coming early to their time zone. When the ball falls "Fortnite" players are forced to dance for a few seconds, making the moment impossible to ignore. Some players rushed to the social media to announce that "Fortnite's" New Year's celebration came out early.
An honest mistake to be sure, but the community "Fortnite" leapt with comments to the "early" event, which provokes a response of epic games. Co-founder and Vice President Mark Raine gently condemned players who believed the incident had been accidentally triggered earlier.
"Does it really mean you do not understand how time zones work or do you think your is the only time zone in the world?" Rain squeaked.
Pope's spokesman Nick Chester and Reine were later delayed that the event would take place at any hour to meet any time zone.
Hopefully, the event will learn how wide the "Fortnite" community extends, mentioning that the Earth revolves around the sun, not around them.
