Epic Pursues Cheating Players In Fortnite Battle Royale

Fortnite Battle Royale hits 525,000 concurrent players with 3.7m daily active users

As a result of his conduct, Defendant has been banned from playing Fortnite at least nine times.

By combining the building mechanics of Fortnite with the intense survival gameplay of "battle royale" games, Fortnite: Battle Royale has drawn a huge number of players looking to scratch that survival itch, with the game having crossed a big milestone since release. Despite the rampant use of exploits by some of the user base's morally dubious fans, the popular free-to-play mode continues to grow, as the developer has now announced that Battle Royale has surpassed more than 10 million players in just two weeks' time.

Epic also hinted that something like this was coming, saying that they were "constantly working against both the cheaters themselves and the cheat providers". The targeted cheaters, Brandon Broom and Charles Vraspir, are allegedly support staff on cheat website AddictedCheats, which sells cheats and hacks. Additionally, the complaint against Broom lists circumvention of technological measures in violation of the Digital Millennium Copy Right Act. 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.


"Nobody likes a cheater". "And nobody likes playing with cheaters".

As seen in the infographic attached to the tweet below, Epic Games and People Can Fly made a decision 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. They also issued a threat, perhaps suggesting that Bluehole can attempt to take some legal action against Epic Games for the uncanny similarities of the game. Both defendants face a fine of $150,000.
