That said, it still has some way to go before it even comes close to the might of PUBG, as Bluehole also announced yesterday (perhaps in a cynical game of one-upmanship) that the game had passed the two million concurrent player mark - making Fortnite's achievement look rather pitiful by comparison. Epic Games claims they had to reverse-engineer and modify Fortnite's source code to do this, creating an unauthorized derivative work that's in violation of the Copyright Act.

Just previous week Epic was swinging the ban hammer around in Fortnite Battle Royale. We are constantly working against both the cheaters themselves and the cheat providers.

According to ESPN , the three-judge panel voted to 2-1 to back the NFL's argument against the Dallas Cowboys running back. The Court of Appeals ruled against the injuction Thursday, overruling the district court's decision.

"To start, addressing cheaters in Fortnite is the highest priority across Epic Games", said Epic community coordinator Nathan Mooney in a statement on October 4. "We don't want to give too many clues about what we're doing, but we are rolling out tools and will continue to do so". One of the pair had been banned at least nine times across different accounts prior to the formal legal complaint.

"Nobody likes a cheater", the document reads. Let's face it, Fortnite now has all of these players looking at the title specifically because it is no longer Fortnite, it's Fortnite Battle Royale. Defendant uses cheats in a deliberate attempt to destroy the integrity of, and otherwise wreak havoc in, the Fortnite game. This is also technically the same number for how many players have won a game as that's the only way you can earn an umbrella.

According to the complaints, both defendants offer technical support for AddictedCheats.com and, with cheats the site provides, monitor streams and intentionally prevent streamers from winning. However, it would seem that that pretty much all of the new players are flocking to the game exclusively because of the PUBG-inspired feature.
