Last week in Fortnite a rescue attempt went into play to help a trapped player go wrong. The event achieved near-memorable status, and Epic added a gravestone in the game as a memory of the fallen player. Now, players keep mock funerals and they go as bad as bungled rescue.
It all started when streamer Muselk happened on a stranded player last week. The player, Chappadoodle, had fallen to the edge of the game's map where it is not possible to build. Muselk mounted a rescue attempt, built stairs as close as possible, and drove off a rock with a golf cart. The plan was to use the stroller to jump to the stairs, but the stroller was in Chappadoodle and knocked him to his death. After Epic added a tombstone to the game in memory of the event, players tried to organize a funeral.
Community members organized the event using the game's Reddit, calling players to run into the game's Oceanic servers and go to the tombstone. Fornite s Oceanic servers are often used for players' collections as lower player numbers cut down on the amount of troll that can destroy events. However, a Reddit user with the unfortunate name Thederpytroller managed to destroy one of the collections by destroying the gravestone with a pickaxe.
Thederpytroller claims it was an accident. "So, I did not know that the grave was breakable at the Chappadoodle funeral, I'm sorry everyone who was there," they said at Reddit.
Destroying Chappadoodle's grave was a huge chain of events. The gathered crowd quickly hit them and smashed them with death. Some players tried to dance and keep things relatively collateral, just to be blown up by grenades.
It is common for Fortnite gatherings to go wrong. At the beginning of the month, a troll neighbor had a new kill record after breaking a platform where players watched a rocket launch in the game. This burial burial was not so great, but it could be a good reason for Epic to beat Chappadoodle's graveyard to a full-fledged cemetery.
