On the & # 39; reality Fortnite marked the world of games for 2018, where he worked until the last motto YouTube Rewind. Currently, one of the biggest events in the game world, with millions of active players daily, also known in the tournament (with prizes), organized in Epic Games studio.
Unfortunately, one of these tournaments to generate enough controversy with Epic Games in the center of the controversy.
The case relates to one of the last tournaments organized in Epic Games studio. Held in January, during the Australian Tennis Open earlier this year. Then Fortnite Summer Smash boasted several awards, totaling 400,000 US dollars to be distributed among the winners, which are usually stored in the case.
Millionaires Fortnite tournament
By the way, it was the largest event of its kind in Australia. Was entirely devoted to competitive games and, in accordance with the international press, I had never seen anything like it. However, the tournament was classified as an incredible success, attracted a record number of participants in the country.
Nevertheless, we now have a number of winners to accuse Epic Games non-payment of premiums due as a result of this competition. In this sense, we can cite the testimony of the player, ttvLeftRightGN on Reddit platform where explain your case. Your dissatisfaction is evident, especially given awards.

In addition, according to his testimony, Epic Games has to pay 1000 Australian dollars, about 632 euros from 21 to 1000 are ranked. However, it was not to be, not being alone in this player complaints. In fact, according to several finalists were still paid.
Premiums must be paid Epic Games
One of the most popular games, it's hard to believe that Epic Games could jeopardize its reputation. Unfortunately, this seems to be the case, doing well to remember one of the letters sent by one of the employees of a telephone hotline. Here we see clearly showing that the payment is Epic Games.
Then we can see the rules provided for the participants. In the end, we have a clear indication that the prizes will be distributed directly to the studio. Nevertheless, it's been about 6 months since the last major tournaments in Australia and funds remain largely absent.
At the same time, it should be noted that some of the participants received their dividends. However, this does not negate the confusion around the subject. Until now, the company does not disclose the reasons for such delays. At the moment, the press shows that 25 out of 100 finished still waiting.
Already, however, the fault can be attributed to both parties, especially when filling the form players. Not that it completely nullifies responsibility and image support in Epic Games. At the same time, 180,000 Australian dollars is still given as the expense of investors.
We hope, and in the next game of the tournament to prepare in advance.
