Several competitive Fortnite players allege they haven’t been paid their winnings yet and Epic Games responded to those claims and more in a new blog post.

With Epic Games leaving so much money up for grabs for players to earn on a weekly basis, many players have thrown their hat into the ring to win a quick buck.

However, many players are claiming they haven’t received their payments from Epic Games, leading to them to create a response.

Payment improvements are coming

According to Epic, improvements to the payment process are coming and they will give updates on when players can now expect their money.

On top of that, a more intuitive landing page is being created so players will much more easily be able to track their earned money. This includes Epic sending out email updates and making the tax information process all available in one spot.

Epic Games mentions that if you won any money before April 2019, you’ll still have to use the previous payment flow, so you’ll be without all the new added bells and whistles. 

You can read about the changes much more in-depth in Epic’s blog post here.

For new Fortnite competitors, it sounds like you won’t have to worry about Epic losing track of your payments anymore.

While this isn’t a direct response to complaints among players, it does help alleviate many of the concerns players had. 

With thousands of dollars being offered each week, it’s important to make sure there’s a fluid payment process and it looks like Epic Games is working towards fixing that.


Tfue finally reveals why he quit Fortnite after 2 years of “crankin 90s”

One of the biggest Fortnite streamers ever, Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney, revealed why he quit the game that amassed him millions of followers and a lucrative streaming career.

Since Fortnite’s battle royale component was released, the 22-year-old has been one of the most consistent content creators around the title. As for skill, at one time he was hailed as the best player, which only skyrocketed his popularity on Twitch.

But after years of speaking out against design decisions and the subsequent release of Warzone, Tfue left behind his main source of content – sporadically popping back into Fortnite since.

Only lightly talking about his Fortnite absence in the past, Tfue opened up about why he left on the ‘Brand Risk Podcast’ and how he’s expanded from the game since making the decision.

Tfue was a huge figure in the Fortnite scene. He’s pictured here making an appearance at the Fortnite World Cup.

“Two years of cranking 90s was just too much,” Tfue said. “I had to spice it up and play other things. Plus, I felt like I milked the game so much that, like, me playing it was almost digging myself into a pit.”

When he first started uploading YouTube videos on Fortnite, he called it one of the “easiest and most polished” battle royales in the market at the time. That was largely true, as audiences from all age and skill groups eagerly hopped on to try it out.

But as his popularity slowly grew on Twitch, he saw that Fortnite started to become a job instead of the title that consumed his gaming life.

“I got to the point where the only reason I was playing it was for viewers and for my career,” he explained. “I just stopped caring about that and felt like I milked Fortnite for all that was worth, considering I was blowing up at the peak of it.”

Tfue feels Fortnite “will die down, but (never) actually die,” and he’s already deep into games like Warzone to hold him over. Other bigtime streamers like DrLupo, CouRage, and Myth have also been separating from Epic Games’ battle royale, something we’re seeing more and more.

While he made a name for himself on the Fortnite island, Tfue has been exploring greener pastures to take his streaming career to the next phase.
