Epic Sues Two Fortnite Cheaters

13 October 2017

The suits identify the plaintiffs as Mr. Vraspir and Mr. Broom.

Epic Games have just announced that the Battle Royale segment of the free to play title Fornite, has officially hit 10 million players since launch.

For $5 to $15 monthly subscriptions, Addicted Cheats' botting services aid players in tracking, aiming at and killing enemies in PvP games.

According to the complaints, both defendants offer technical support for AddictedCheats.com and, with cheats the site provides, monitor streams and intentionally prevent streamers from winning. It takes more than a few cues from the stupidly popular PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, but with Microsoft calling console exclusivity on that one, Fortnite developer Epic Games has been quick to take advantage - and boy has the gamble paid off. One defendant had been banned from playing Fortnite nine times. When asked why he stream snipes other players, he allegedly said, "Because its [sic] fun to rage and see streamers cry about how loaded they are and then get them stomped anyways".

"To start, addressing cheaters in Fortnite is the highest priority across Epic Games. Epic Eat my ass". Epic statement clearly implies the disdain the company has for cheaters: "Defendant's cheating, and his inducing and enabling of others to cheat, is ruining the game playing experience of players who do not cheat".

Fortnight Battle Royale is a completely free mode that's anyone can download and play, only tangentially related to the base game which is a craft 'em up survival game that had some muddy messaging and launched to a muted reception. "And it's ongoing, we're exploring every measure to ensure the cheaters are removed and stay removed".
