QUESTIONS FOR COMMUNITY:
Is 90 players a fair minimum for a valid match, given that the aim here is to scavenge materials? I’ve never seen the counter begin at 100, am guessing that sometimes games just start as long as there’s a minimum of 90+ players. Given this is the fastest victory, it should be democratically decided what the minimum number should be.
This is for the Early Access game. Are we concerned about possible features the finished version may have? Could that potentially impact future times/attempts, or is that inconsequential?
Do players also need to record themselves returning to the menu/lobby for evidence, or indeed the rest of the match if this is only a timed 3-minute attempt?
Why do the rules require a player to stay alive for all 3 minutes? What benefits could someone gain by dying early?

This is for most materials scavenged in 3 minutes in a 100-man Battle Royale match in Fortnite.
Players can scavenge wood, metal or brick. The result is the combined total for each of the materials scavenged after exactly three minutes. The amount of materials scavenged is shown on the in-game HUD.
Each material caps at 999. If a player manages to obtain the maximum level of one material during an attempt, they can only scavenge for the remaining materials.
The time begins the moment the player lands on any part of the map (ground, building or otherwise) after they have finished gliding from their battle-bus.
The time does NOT commence the moment players leave the battle-bus, while they are still airborne.
If the player is killed during the timed three minutes, the attempt is disqualified. The player is free to compete in the remainder of the match once the three minutes have elapsed, if they wish, or they can eliminate themselve.
Players can land on any part of the map as they choose. In fact, choosing your landing is very much a strategic part of this att.
Players must use the default pickaxe. Different skins are not permitted.
Different cosmetic character skins are fine to use.
Fortnite allows for cross-platform play. The attempt must be played with and against players of the same platform.
This is for both the Early Access game, released in September 2017, and the finished version of the game that releases in late 2018.
The Battle Royale mode is currently available as both a free version, and in the paid-for “full version” (which includes the PvE mode).
Attempt can be on any map, as randomly selected by the game servers.
Player counter must begin at no less than 90 as displayed in the in-game player counter.
Attempt is for the Solo Mode.
Must be a public match. No pre-arranged private matches where the player has control over his opponents.
Players are free to use whatever weapons and items they may acquire in-game.
The full attempt must be recorded for evidence submission purposes including the menu screen before the match. As mentioned earlier, the player is free to compete in the remainder of the match, once the three minutes have elapsed, or they can eliminate themselves.
