Epic has already banned thousands of Fortnite World Cup participants for cheating
The high-profile Fortnite World Cup got underway last weekend – and already Epic has banned thousands of participants for cheating.
The World Cup online open week one tournament saw a huge amount of interest – no surprise given Epic’s putting up $1m each week for online open qualifiers.
In a blog post, Epic detailed over 1100 accounts were banned from competitive play for 14 days for circumventing region locks and playing in multiple regions through the course of the tournament. That number includes just shy of 200 prize winners who have had their prizes forfeited.
