Epic Pursues Cheating Players In Fortnite Battle Royale

Epic Pursues Cheating Players In Fortnite Battle Royale

'Fortnite Battle Royale is the FREE 100-player PvP mode in Fortnite. 10 million players turn up in two weeks since the mode launched.

What have you thought of the Fortnite Battle Royale mode? For starters, 44.9 million cumulative hours have been spent playing Battle Royale, and during this time, 58.9 million traps have been found, while over 797 million stairs, walls, ceilings, and floors have been built, and 292.7 million jumps from the battle bus have been taken. The game also peaked at 525,000 concurrent players on Monday, with 3.7m active users on that day alone. Specifically, their cheat is accused of modifying the game and infringing on Epic's copyright.

Epic Games have been celebrating a lot recently, with good cause.

Unlike the classic Sparks song, it appears that the gaming town that Fortnite Battle Royale and PUBG inhabit is big enough for the both of them. The developers of "PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds" have threatened Epic Games over the same title.

Breaking down Yankees-Astros: How big an edge is Girardi?
Rounding out the Yankees rotation are Masahiro Tanaka (13-12, 4.74 ERA), Luis Severino (14-6, 2.98) and CC Sabathia (14-5, 3.69). Had Cleveland beaten the Yankees, the Indians would have had the home-field advantage from owning the best record in baseball.

Russian agents even turned Pokémon Go against us
This "contest" required people to take screen shots from their phone and share over other social networks, not within our game. The pack will include a Pokémon GO Plus , a poster autographed by the Pokémon GO team, and wireless Bluetooth earbuds.

Loot boxes can not be classified as gambling, according to the ESRB
Skin gambling is not prohibited as a betting activity and loot boxes can be traded within video games. ESRB's website notes that it has two categories for gambling : real gambling and simulated gambling .

It seems the battle royal genre is here to stay, with PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds and Fortnite both seemingly coexisting with massive player numbers.

Several days ago, Epic Games confirmed that it banned "thousands" of cheaters in Fortnite's Battle Royale game mode, and that it has plans to roll out even more anti-cheat tools in the future. They said that they have made a decision to respond to growing concerns about the similarities between the two games.

They went on to say that after listening to the feedback from the PUBG community as well as looking through the gameplay, they are concerned that "Fortnite" might be trying to copy the experience that PUBG is known for. While Battlegrounds explicitly forbids cheating and stream-sniping in its rules of conduct, Fortnite'sonly explicitly forbids cheating. Epic's move toward legal action wasn't without warning, however.
