Epic Games announced on Fortnite's official Twitter account that all players who participated in the Unvaulting event will receive a reward due to technical issues.
On Saturday, May 4, 2019, Fortnite players gathered around the Loot Lake Point of Interest to watch the one-off unvaulting event in the game. Unfortunately, this event was plagued by technical issues that caused many players to go down.
Epic Games has announced that all players who participated in the event will be excused in one way or another. Unfortunately, the event is not repeated.
We apologize that some players could not view the Unvaulting event. Anyone who has jumped into the Unvaulting Playlist will receive the Arcana Glider in the next few days. Players who have previously purchased the Arcana Glider will be refunded their V-Bucks.

Unfortunately, a great deal of the creators and players could not experience it – time, live, in-game event due to technical issues at the end of Epic ,
Players experiencing this issue simply watched the timer countdown to 0:00:00 followed by nothing. No chance to choose, no volcanic eruptions, no event.
Such was the #Fortnite Unvaulting Event for us …

What do you think of these events? Were you one of the unlucky players affected by this issue? Do you feel that the Free Glider (or V-Bucks) is compensation for missing a one off event?
