Fortnite Battle Royale – V.2.3.0 Server Update – NA West & East Coast Servers

V.2.3.0 Server Update: NA West & East Coast Server

Hey Folks,

With the launch of 2.3.0, we will be making some changes to our Server Regions in North America. Wondering what that means and how it affects you? Take a look at our mini-FAQ below:

  • North America will be split into: NA East + NA West.
  • NA East servers are located in: Virginia and Ohio (this is currently NA today).
  • NA West servers are located in: Northern California and Oregon (new).
  • Many players on west coast U.S. + Canada, along with parts of Mexico, will have ping improvement ranging from minor to major (ping cut in half in some cases).
  • You should auto-route to the most optimal region, but we recommend double checking your settings once 2.3.0 is live.
  • Playing with friends in other regions is still 100% seamless. You just party up as normal and the Party Leader’s region will determine the region for the match.
  • Why are there now two datacenters per region?:
    • Matches are currently randomly distributed between them (Virginia/Ohio for NA East for example).
    • Long-term we are looking to make this more intelligent and seamlessly group players into the best possible experience.
    • The datacenters within each region have very small ping variance for majority of players.
    • We need to run in multiple datacenters to support player counts and have redundancy in the case of datacenter-specific issues.

Thanks,

The Fortnite Team
