My top real concern as a consumer is security to be honest.
Lo and behold, amongst the six biggest videogame disappointments of 2018 according to kotaku
Fortnite accounts keep getting hacked.
Fortnite is one of the most popular video games in the world at this point, which makes it all the more unfortunate how poor a job Epic has done securing players’ accounts. They get hacked all the time, and some players have had their credit card information compromised as a result. There’s actually a thriving economy based off of hacking and then selling accounts, and one hacker told Kotaku that Epic’s account security is “top kek.”
What has Epic done about this? Not too much, it appears. If your kid is using your credit card to buy a Season Pass for Fortnite , keep an eye out for any weird transactions.
I have the Epic client installed because of the Unreal Engine being used by stuff I work with, and for the past month or so, I am getting invitations by people with nicks like “Samuel-XDD7” to be friends.
Similar issues used to plague Steam too - with uncannily named profiles wanting to be “friends” and “trade” stuff with me.
“Top kek” security isn’t precisely something that sells me the idea of doing business on the Epic store.
