The 8th-day challenge and reward for the 14 Days of Fortnite are out but it seems like players are having some issues with the rewards.
Just an hour after the new challenge went live, players have reported that they didn’t receive the reward Take the Elf emote. Fortunately, Epic has immediately acknowledged the issue and told their fans that the reward will be granted to players who completed the challenge early next year.
We have identified an issue with the Take the Elf emote not being granted to players after completing the Day 8 challenge. We will grant this reward to all players that earned it early next year.

It’s a good news that players will still receive the reward, however, many are still disappointed for the issue due to the fact that when they receive the reward, the holiday season is already over. While players will still receive the emote, chances are that players will barely use it since it’s a holiday-themed emote.

Due to the holiday season, some of the Epic employees are still out for vacation and can’t fix it right away.
What do you think about this issue? Are you one of the players who fail to receive the reward after completing the challenge?
