Yeah Tencent probably put pressure on Blue, since Tencent has big stakes in both Fortnite and PUBG.

That's another thing. Either way, out of all of this, Tencent still wins. 

I wouldn't even be surprised if Tencent were to intervene at the last minute, had the case gone through.

PUBG who is to a degree, tied to MS, sues Epic who sided with PS to a certain extent. Epic more recently turns on PS to a certain degree and now PUBG drops the lawsuit. Hmm...

Oh planet Earth! The home of native lands, 
True social law, in all of us demand.
With cattle farts, we view sea rise,
Our North sinking slowly.
From far and snide, oh planet Earth, 
Our healthcare is yours free!
Science save our land, harnessing the breeze,
Oh planet Earth, smoke weed and ferment yeast.
Oh planet Earth, ell gee bee queue and tee.

I like the way you think chiggin. But it was Sony that kinda screwed that pooch, not epic turning on Sony. It's completely in Sony's power to fix what is going on they just don't want to, which is a shame.



Do we now know for sure that frying pans are fair use? or are they still copyright of the PuBG creator? It's just that I was going to buy one for a bit of cooking but didn't wanna end up in hot legal water.

Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8

It was never their intention to sue, they know a case like that wouldn't stand a chance. Probably wanted some publicity because their game is being snowed under by Fortnite. A better strategy would be to improve your sterile, bug-ridden and poor performing game, interest is fading fast.

Ah they finally realized they have no leg to stand on against Fortnite?

The makers of PUBG have made asses of themselves with this lawsuit as being jealous of a better game does not mean they can sue that game and succeed.

Perhaps they will try improving theirs instead of trying to destroy the other one.

Yaknow, I used to love Pubg, and I truly hated fortnite.
Man things have changed so much since I started actually giving fortnite a chance, it's all I ever want to play.
But honestly, this whole thing just really showed me how much of a bad company bluehole was.
Dude that game had so many problems that were never addressed partly due to the MS deal, and it still continues to be one of the most flawed popular games in the market.
The way Epic handles fortnite just really opened my eyes to how a proper developer should treat a game. Believe me when I say that I loved pubg.... but man, epic makes updates, map changes, gametype changes, features, every goddamn week. They make BH look like a joke.

It really just makes me ask myself why I put up with pubg's bullshit for so long. The whole lawsuit in this situation is almost emblematic of the kinds of business practices BH was into, which basically just boils everything down into a get rich quick scheme using some outlandishly overestimated valuation of their own product. Like, BH thinking they actually have a case, is like them thinking they actually are good developers.

I don't know if this makes sense, i haven't slept in two days.

Very well said all of you. Fortnite is taking over for a reason. The support epic has given the game is nothing short of phenomenal.

Maybe they should use the money that they were planning to use on legal fees and dedicate it to improving their bad game.

I was more so pointing out the fact that Epic has said things like, 'Fortnite is even better when your playing with your real friends, and due to platform restrictions there are some players that aren't able to play with their friends and their left out, and you know gamers want cross play. At Epic we are committed to doing whatever it takes to make that happen. Players deserve it.'

For Epic to point the finger at PS in terms of not allowing cross accounts and cross play, knowing full well that's part of the deal if they wanted to have Fortnite on the PS4 platform, and the success they've had because of it, is pretty ungrateful. It's also a bit stingy of PS not to allow either or, but it's not like Epic was forced to agree. If they really believed it was so important, they should have kept Fortnite off the PS4 and then used PS policies against them to help unlock these restrictions for 'some players' since they 'deserve it'. Getting the game on that platform first then doing the same thing is pretty sleazy. It's like infiltrating an organization from the inside to sabotage, like spy level stuff, but for gaming.

To say that it's the fault of PS and they can fix it now, is basically saying use public pressure to force them to, 'or else'. I'm sure if it was made extremely clear to PS that cross play was going to be 'accidentally' turned on for Fortnite for a period of time, and that Epic would go around saying things that go against the policies they agreed to, that PS may very well have told them they can take their game elsewhere and then either forget about it, find something else to replace it, wait it out for H1Z1 or push it's launch forward.

Can't help but find it suspicious that PUBG drops the lawsuit right when the heat get's cranked up on PS about Fortnite though.
