Hey, Fortnite Fanatic: You're probably going to bed this Sunday night and feeling confused, angry and in need of answers.
And there is a total one valid reason for that.
Season 10 of Fortnite is over – in the truest sense of the word.
The End event should have started Season 1
When players signed up at 2pm EST, they could only access a single mode or a team fight called "The End". During the mode, a rocket around Dusty Depot launched into the sky, causing cracks in the sky like other events at the end of the season.
But then several rockets began to create multiple cracks before turning into a huge rift over the island. All players in the mode were then thrown into the air, where they saw a giant meteor and six rockets from the newly formed giant tears came.
Then the six rockets fell off – and the island shot around in different directions – and the big meteor crashed into Loot Lake. Next came an explosion, and everything was sucked into the crack, leaving only a black hole.
RIP Fortnite: Battle Royale

Now the game is not playable – anyone who logs in to the game only sees the black hole. (However, players can enter the Konami code – up, down, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, Enter – to play a mini-game while they wait.)
Fortnites Twitter: Black hole. Instagram: Black Hole. Official Website: Black Hole.

What is Fortnite known for?
Every few months, a new theme is added to grab users' attention.
Players have also noticed numbers around the black hole. Some users have speculated that one of the number combinations could be a date and time at which Season 11 can be played. However, the number combination changed during the afternoon into the night.
Epic Games, which Fortnite developed and released in 2017, has so far publicly commented on only one outage that prevented users from logging in.
Login services are back to normal. Thank you for your patience.

At a certain point in time millions of users watched the black hole on Twitter, YouTube, Twitch, Facebook Gaming and Mixer.
Millions of people watched this @FortniteGame ] stream now.
If I am Fortnite, I leave it there all day.
What a Bossflex: "We've got you watching a black hole for 24 hours" https://t.co/eQsXLK8tDS[19459013)-𝗔𝗥𝗗𝗔🎃𝗖𝗔𝗟(@Arda) October 13th 2019
People have a lot to say
In March 2019, Epic Games last published statistics on the number of registered accounts: 250 million players.
And these users – including some of the game's most popular players – are all in on the black hole drama.
I mean to be honest, having been complaining and talking garbage every single day … what did we expect? 😞🤔

The astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson even told you what would happen if you it would be caught in the middle of Fortnite's black hole.
Did your @fortnitegame suck you and everything else into a black hole?
Can not help you there.
But death-through-black hole is one thing, and there could even be a whole universe on the other side. http://t.co/Toio6gpgdv

Kyle "Bugha" Giersdorf has recently won the first Fortnite World Cup and he had a bold prediction when the next season will be canceled.
