Epic Games falsely warned Fortnite players that they would be getting banned for “teaming” in solos. Now, they are compensating these players with free V-Bucks.
Epic introduced a spectator feature in Fortnite Chapter 2. This was a much-requested change from the community, who were tired of waiting in the lobby for their friends to finish a game.
The new mechanic is far from bug-free, however. It doesn’t work all of the time and has recently led to players receiving a false ban warning for spectating their friends in solo mode.
Apparently, the Fortnite server saw this spectator feature as a sign of “teaming,” and was warning players that repeat offenses would result in a ban. Of course, these players weren’t doing anything wrong, so they were surprised to see that they may face a ban for using the in-game feature.
