The Fortnite phenomenon has marked the game world throughout 2018, even in the latest version of YouTube Rewind. Today, it is one of the greatest phenomena in the gaming world, with millions of active players a day, also known for tournaments (with awards) organized by the Epic Games studio.
Unfortunately, one of these tournaments generates a lot of disputes with Epic Games at the center of the controversy.
The case is one of the latest tournaments organized by Epic Games. This was held in January, during the Australian Open Tennis early in the year. There, Fortnite Summer Smash boasted several prizes, a total of $ 400,000, to be awarded to winners who would normally find themselves at the event.

By the way, this was the biggest tournament of its kind in Australia. It was totally devoted to the competitive game, and according to the international press he had never seen anything like it before. However, the tournament was rated as an incredible achievement, combining a record number of participants in the country.
Now, however, we have several winners who blame the Epic Games for not paying due prices as a result of this competition. In this sense, we can quote the player's testimony, ttvLeftRightGN, on the Reddit platform, where he explains his case. Their resentment is notorious, especially with regard to prices.

Still according to his testimony, Epic games were expected to pay $ 1000, about $ 632 from 21 to 1000. But that wouldn't happen if this player was not alone in the complaints. In fact, according to several finalists, so far prices have not been paid.
Prices should be paid for by Epic Games
Being one of the most popular games today, it is hard to believe that Epic games would jeopardize its reputation. Unfortunately, it seems like this, we also remember one of the emails sent by one of the support staff. There we clearly see that the Epic Games are responsible for the payments.
Then we will see the regulation offered to the participants. Finally, we have a clear sign that the prizes will be distributed directly in the studio. However, it was about 6 months since the last major tournament in Australia and the outstanding amounts remain, mostly missing.
At the same time, some participants have already received their dividends. However, this does not mean that the confusion generated around the object is invalid. The company has not yet provided reasons for these delays. Currently, the press states that 25 of the first 100 are still waiting.
On the other hand, the error is attributed to both parties, especially when filling out forms by players. Not that this fully invalidates the responsibility and image to be maintained, by Epic Games. Meanwhile, $ 180,000 still owes them participants.
We are looking forward to the next upcoming tournaments.
