Epic Games has begun to rollout their new matchmaking system which will pair you up with players of a similar skill level. In the most recent blog post they state that the matchmaking has already been integrated into solos and will be added to duos later this week, according to Epic the new system will look into various skill levels across all platforms and control inputs.

“Our goal with the new matchmaking system is to create fairer matches for all of our players, which includes special considerations for each platform. This means that where similar skill exists, players may be paired against opponents from ALL platforms – whether they’re using mouse + keyboard, a controller, or touch input. We are closely monitoring match analytics and your feedback, and we’ll make adjustments to ensure everyone is playing a fair match.”

They also detailed what their plan is to handle smurfing, for those who are unaware of this term its when a player creates a new account and uses it to go after players of a lower level, their plan is to permanently ban the account.

Fortnite is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC with mobile versions on iOS and Android.
