Fortnite has swept onto the video game scene and created havoc for all it's competitors. The game has quickly become the most popular video game on the market and created a huge demand for theme parties in our industry. We currently are taking several dozen calls each day requesting a Fortnite theme party. The demand is amazing, but what is the reality about hosting a video game party with Fortnite?
The abundance of companies attempting to say they offer Fortnite as a playing option inside a mobile video game theater is huge. Many of these companies that are advertising the game as a party option are not actually video game truck owners and are third party brokers with no relationship or contract with any video game trucks. These companies are telling naive customers that they can host a Fortnite theme party with up to 100 players playing in a single game together. This is not a reality for a real video game truck due to several reasons.
First, Fortnite is an ONLINE ONLY game that requires a strong internet connection to allow the gaming to be uninterrupted by lagging issues faced by slow mobile hotspots. Mobile hotspots may allow connection to the internet and connection to the game server but gaming will not be very good. The current mobile hotspot market does not offer one that supports the requirements of mobile online video gaming, no matter what ANY company tells you the gaming is not workable on a hotspot.
The reason is due to the design of real game trucks and the materials used to build them will block most cellular and hotspot signals from reaching the inside to the game consoles. Another reason is the limitations for data usage on mobile internet hotspots is limited to 20-50Gb of data per month. We tested the required data usage recently and one Game Cave utilized over 1300Gb of data in only 3 days for online gaming. The hotspot speeds are throttled down when usage reaches the data limit and the extremely low speeds make pulling up a webpage difficult much less to support an online video game server.
The other reason that Fortnite is a tough theme party to host is the fact the game is ONE PLAYER per online account. This means that a Game Cave party that would normally host 16-20 gamers at once will be reduced to only 4 PLAYERS MAX. The facts are contrary to the confabulations being told to parents where certain companies are telling them that they can host up to 100 players in a single game. The truth is that ONLINE SERVER HOSTS UP TO 100 PLAYERS in single game but each game system can only login a single player - this is by design of the game creator.
If a company tells you anything other than this, hang up the phone immediately as they lack integrity and are only attempting to defraud you of your money. The current scam in the industry is for the supposed game truck company to make promises about unrealistic game play only to have the story changed on location when all your guests are there and you have no other choice but to accept the limited gaming experience they actually can deliver.
