I have played Fortnite exactly one time. And, it was with my former 8th grade lacrosse team. The game consumes kids and adults alike. Last season coaching my lax team I had to impose a sprints rule at practice if I heard any Fortnite talk because it was getting so bad.
So, yesterday when I heard that Fortnite had “gone dark” I couldn’t stop laughing. I imagined grown ass adults screaming at their TV’s. I imagined kids without school on Monday losing their minds because they couldn’t play all day. (GO. OUT. SIDE.)
Naturally… I went to Twitter and of course people have been and are continuing to lose their minds.
I just wanna play fortnite 🥺🥺🥺— ☁️ Meechie (@Shelovesmeechie) October 14, 2019
This event is giving me the largest headache in the world. The numbers are repeating (which I think is pointless, but that's okay), but is it really necessary. Like I could be in a Fortnite Battle Royale game. Humph. #fortniteevent #FortniteChapter2 @FortniteGame— Fortnite Thinker (@FortniteThinke1) October 14, 2019

How about this everyone… Go outside and breathe some fresh air. Go say hello to someone. Call your parents. Go for a walk. Make a nice sandwich for lunch. Take a shower. Clean the house. Read a book. Watch sports center. Learn Italian. Pet a dog (not a cat.)
Just go enjoy the day and sometime soon your stupid game will come back.
