Some even want Fortnite to revoke the ban on FaZe Jarvis.

Also, FNCS finals are on and mobile device players of Fortnite cannot participate anymore. Why? Because Epic thought it was the right time to pick a fight with two of the biggest monopolies in the smartphone market. They even created a 1-minute clip, trolling Apple’s iconic 1984 ad.

moreover, Epic filed lawsuits against both Google and Apple for kicking Fortnite off their respective stores.

Unfortunately, while Epic is busily embroiled in a legal battle, Fortnite suffering. The game continues to be rife with bugs and hackers, frustrating its players.

It is possible that Epic didn’t think twice about how the community would react to this. Many have voiced their opinion saying Epic’s priority should have been fixing the in-game bugs that are making the experience unpleasant.

 

At some point, the step taken to ‘win a war’ by Epic was bound to look pretentious to some. And why not? Players can’t play the game because of a battle Epic chose to fight that they didn’t ask for.

Meanwhile, hackers and cheaters are thronging the FNCS NA lobby.

The hacker in question is currently gloating about his achievement of going undetected by Fortnite’s million-dollar anti-cheat.
