With its recent gain in popularity, Fortnite Battle Royale has managed to catch up with PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds before overtaking it in recent weeks. However, as one of the downsides of being free, the title has been facing on of the disadvantages of this business model: the players are less afraid of losing their account.
Faced with cheaters and other people not respecting the rules of conduct of the game, Epic Games has been intransigent, and is even going to sue some of them. Continuing in this direction, one of the studio’s executives announced on Reddit that players who team up while in Solo Mode will be punished.
“Teaming in Solo is against the rules and will result in Epic Games taking action on accounts that participate in that behaviour.”
