This problem seems to be triggered when a large number of players attempt to queue up and get into the game. As such, the issue is related to the servers likely being overpopulated and/or Epic Games being unable to manage the influx of gamers. Nevertheless, here are a few workarounds for the "Sorry you are visiting too frequently" error.


1) Restart your gaming device

When facing issues connecting to the game, the first and most basic workaround is to restart your device. This should allow you to gain access to Fortnite's servers when you try to log into it again.


2) Verify the integrity of the files

If the first method fails, verify the integrity of Fortnite. At times, files tend to get corrupted, which can lead to the game crashing or preventing you from accessing its servers. If the integrity check fails, let the client download the game files that are missing and/or corrupted.

Given the servers' state, this process could take longer than usual. Be patient and let the application run its course. Once the task has been completed, try logging in after a while.


3) Wait for an official solution from Epic Games

If the aforementioned step does not work, you will have to wait for an official solution from Epic Games. Given that they are aware of this issue, the developers are working on a fix.

Until the fix goes online, it's advisable to stay in the queue and keep trying to gain access to the lobby. If you are able to make it into the game, stay until The Big Bang playlist is available and waste no time queuing up for the first rerun of the live event.
