Launch Bug, Fornite Unplayable, Please Help

When I launch Fortnite, the game starts in the early access loading screen, then proceeds to a patching screen for maybe a minute, then proceeds to a log-in screen. When I try to log in on this screen, my log in attempt fails every time. I can’t play at all as I can not get past this screen. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling, I have checked as many settings options as there are, and I have tried verifying the patch from the Epic Games launcher. Nothing has worked. What can I do at this point?
