It looks like Epic Games came up with a very interesting and incredibly useful idea.
Everyone who plays multiplayer games knows this feeling perfectly when our friend list is constantly changing. Mainly because our friends like to change their nicknames.
Sometimes after a few weeks, we look into the list of friends and we don’t associate anyone at all.
Broadcasting your nicknames
People searching the game’s files indicate that a new feature may be coming soon to the Fortnite client. It is about broadcasting nicknames of players we have in our friends.
It would definitely be useful if we have a poor memory for nicknames, or if we want to organize our list by giving special markings to friends.
Unfortunately, this has not been confirmed and it is not known whether this will actually come into effect. There is also no information about a possible date.
