Free Fortnite Cup: Epic Games Strikes Apple

The war between Epic Games and Apple is still alive. The Fortnite company has made it so with the celebration of a tournament called Free Fortnite Cup with prizes that parody Apple.

To continue hurting Apple, Epic Games will hold a new competition under the motto Free Fortnite that it already presented a week ago. This cup has a marked parody character for a very specific prize awarded to the participants.

The next step in this war is this tournament that intends to continue pestering Apple. Epic Games has released a  post in which the details of this tournament are indicated:  Embark on the mission to achieve one more victory royale with your friends from all platforms in the #FreeFortnite Cup that takes place this Sunday.

The tournament rules are very simple. You will have to compete alone in up to 12 games. In each game, a variable amount of points can be scored depending on each player’s result. Here are the insights of Game Point:-

   Uptime: 1 point for every 3 minutes on the Battle Royale island

  Eliminations: 1 point for each elimination

  Royale victory: 10 points for each Royale victory

All those who score 10 points will get the Evil Tycoon costume, a skin that parodies Apple with its apple shape. The highest-ranked will also get a FreeFortnite cap. Other awards have also been announced.

The controversy of this commercial battle between Apple and Epic Games goes back a long way, and the tournament seems to be the answer to the challenge from Apple that will eliminate all the Epic Games apps available for iOS. Tim Sweeney, CEO of Epic Games, responded to accusations of “using fans as weapons” to Apple.
