4th Test: Australia out for 300; India enforce follow-on

"We communicated an incorrect end date for the 14 Days of Fortnite event and did not feel the Equalizer Glider compensation was the right approach". We were also awarded a pickaxe, but the rest of the rewards were mostly festive emotes that were less than spectacular.
Throughout the 14 Days of Fortnite event, Epic ended 2018 by providing a new, unique challenge each day for players to complete.
Players who were previously unable to complete the challenges will be able to earn all of the rewards they passed on. Epic hasn't revealed just when players will get this reward, but it'll be some time in the near future.
The 14 Days of Fortnite challenges are back and are available to complete until early next week. The rewards varied, but those who completed every task ultimately received 14 different perks.
