As much as it's not for me the whole Black hole thing is pretty clever for hype. Though lots of kids raging haha. They do well with the way they change the game I'll give them that.
Leaked new season trailer.
That is brilliant
I gave up on Fortnite a long time ago, but that is a great PR stunt.
Ok so Epic just declared war on Apple...
Epic dropped their vbuck's price via their own payment system by 20% in clear contravention to the App Store rules;
Apple follows up with the removal of Fortnite from the App Store;
Epic responds adroitly (clearly they knew this would happen) and starts a #FreeFortnite campaign;
Its glorious popcorn time Sad days for Fortnite players on Apple devices though
if an apple device is their primary device that's a little bit sad ngl as you'd expect that if they bought a 2000 dollar phone theyd have at least a console
And Google have dropped Fortnite from their store as well;
Crist it's not looking good for mobile players
Wasn't EPIC circumventing the Play store for years on Android for installation? or did Google clamp down on that too..?
They tried... but a few months ago Epic surrendered;
And Epic has filed legal papers in court against Apple - https://cdn2.unrealengine.com/apple-complaint-734589783.pdf
Interesting that Epic are not suing Apple for any money, but for injunction against monopolistic practice on behalf of all developers forced to use Apple for in-app purchases for games.
Also the fact that non-game apps like McDonalds, Uber, etc allow in-app purchases without the need to use the Apple store for their 30% cut is biased and unlawful.
Also interesting that they are slinging shit at Google and Apple for their 30% cut while they're chummy with console companies who do exactly the same thing.
oh if they win expect them to hit those platform holders too.
probably only prepared to lose so much revenue at once.
Are there any non-game apps with in-app purchasing on consoles though?
I think the disparity with mobile apps and games is the biggest point.
You get what you pay for. Good thing I play on PC
lol - same
I just can't build
I must be too old to build well. That shit is insanely hard. I might try swap the build buttons around off default to see if it's easier...but yeah, I can kill bots? So that's good?
I've remapped the build keys and that have made things easier. I use 'f' (wall), 'c' (ramp) and 'v' (floor/ceiling).
But... then I see shit like this...
Came across this guy in a rumble match. I had 9 kills, he had 23. I think my record is 25 kills in a rumble match, but that was in the early days where a shit load of peeps were standing still on tops of trees/hills trying to snipe... which makes it easy to snipe them
surely that's pure muscle memory at 12hrs a day playing....no other way surely.
I got 12 kills and a Victory Royale on Duos the other day.
Funny enough I was fucking around too, ran over 3 people, killed about 7 with a gold pistol and the final kill was me shooting down the floor of a guy 100m above me and watching him go splat.
It's a fun game at times and a frustrating game in other times.
