Epic Games has been forced to disable the time played stat in Fortnite Battle Royale in an attempt to ease the load on the game’s servers.
According to the developer, the stat has only been disabled temporarily and will be restored as soon as things settle down. The developer will offer an update once it has been re-enabled.
We’re disabling the “Time Played” stat temporarily to alleviate stress on our back-end services. We’ll update you once we have enabled this stat again.

The developer has also set up a Trello board to help track a number of issues that are present in both Battle Royale and Save the World, including server lag, being unable to build, inventory slots being unusable, chests not opening, and the first win not granting the Season 3 umbrella.
Last week, Epic released a the massive 3.0.0 update for Fortnite that introduced a new 60 FPS mode for consoles, the hand cannon weapon, a number of building improvements, and more.
Fortnite is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
