Epic Games sues alleged Fortnite cheaters over EULA violations

"To start, addressing cheaters in Fortnite is the highest priority across Epic Games", said Epic community coordinator Nathan Mooney in a statement on October 4. As such, Epic is suing two of Fortnite's most prolific cheaters.

Epic Games revealed in a blog post that they love Battle Royale games like "PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds" and the thought that "Fortnite" would make a good foundation for their own version of that kind of mode.

Four US 'sanctuary cities' may be violating law - US Attorney General
New Orleans, New York and Philadelphia join Chicago and Cook County in remaining out of compliance, the Justice Department said. In April, a presidential executive order that would have cut off funds to sanctuary cities was stymied by a judge's order.

"Defendant's cheating, and his inducing and enabling of others to cheat, is ruining the game playing experience of players who do not cheat", reads the complaint against Vraspir.

Fortnite's new Battle Royale variant has only been around for a couple of weeks, but Epic Games took to Twitter yesterday to announce that the mode has already hit 525,000 concurrent players. The software that Defendant uses to cheat infringes Epic's copyrights in the game and breaches the terms of the agreements to which Defendant agreed in order to have access to the game. Thousands of accounts have since been banned.

Sounds pretty serious. And the complaint has also noted, "Nobody likes a cheater".

The cheating players implicated in the case will face charges up to $150,000 in "statutory damages", according to TorrentFreak. "And nobody likes playing with cheaters". Defendant uses cheats in a deliberate attempt to destroy the integrity of, and otherwise wreak havoc in, the Fortnite game.

The case will return to the courts on Monday, where it will be decided whether or not a further appeal can be made against Apple. Ireland's global business reputation has been damaged by delays to the Apple data centre in Athenry, according to IBEC.

As seen in the infographic attached to the tweet below, Epic Games and People Can Fly chose to not only announce the player milestone that Fortnite has hit, but also figured that fans could use some additional statistics about the game's free-to-play PvP companion mode. Addressing this problem is the "highest priority across Epic Games", it said at the time.
