Epic has updated its rules of the game with a very interesting point.


Epic updates its Fortnite rules from time to time. This time a very interesting point was added regarding people who boast about false bans. This leads to a pretty funny situation where someone can get banned for pretending to be banned.

The new rule in the rules is False Boasting. And while it sounds a bit like some new item added by Epic, it’s the most serious point of the rules:

This season, we are starting to take consequences against players who claim to be excluded from the game or boast that they cheat in the game without doing so.

Developers will take the consequences, that is, simply suspend and ban for speaking, or even bragging that they have been banned or cheat. Why would this be harmful to Fortnite?

This type of false information can make it difficult to track down players who are actually breaking the rules. It also clashes with the spirit of the game and tournament play, and has no place in the Fortnite tournament community.

We read further that this type of false information is intended to prevent the identification of actual cheaters or people who are breaking Epic Games rules.

Does it make sense? Of course. Players have repeatedly boasted of being banned and excluded from the competition. Usually, such people sent one and the same message from the lobby. For what? Good question.
