As such, it seems likely that the developers want to avoid this situation with the Playground Mode and only have to fix it one time.
We will of course update you all if the mode returns, but for now you're just going to have to learn Fortnite the same way as the rest of us, by dying a lot and enduring some matchmaking times.
EPIC Fortnite Playground mode: When will LTM return to Xbox One, PS4, Switch, PC and iOS? "Once we have confirmed that our testing was successful we will begin gradually rolling servers out to all regions and platforms until it's available to all players".
Epic Games disabled the game mode shortly after the update, saying 'we are aware of long queue times and some error messages in the Playground LTM'.
Three days later, Fortnite's Playground LTM is still AWOL. "We've heard your feedback regarding the Final Fight LTM and we agree that the mode isn't quite in a state where we want it to be", the developer wrote on Reddit. "We'll have more information available tomorrow".
The preview for the article said: "Hey there, We're continuing testing on our matchmaking improvements and are still aiming to open the Playground LTM later today".
"When you make matches for every 1-4 people, it requires between 25x and 100x as many matches as normal per 100 people depending on their party size", the statement reads. In order to preserve the base play experience, we took Playgrounds offline while we made improvements to the matchmaking system.
As previously mentioned, the limited-time Playground mode also suffered from a series of issues following its launch and still hasn't returned to the rotation.
