    Epic is trying to make people Love them ........so for a while they are giving free games hahah

    Maybe people will eventually LOVE THEM if they give away enough freebies
    Basically they are trying to BUY your Love  and its working !!! hahah

    Hell, even I'd love them if they gave away Cyberpunk 2077, so who knows.

    Rather than spending on tons of advertising they are spending it on games to give away.  their goal is to get you on the launcher, which is all they could hope for with an ad campaign.

    It is funny that after all this time they STILL don't have a cart.....

    On a side note, Apple just removed Fortnite from the apple store for breaking their rules on in-app purchases, and now Epic is sueing apple lol

    I agree with Epic. Noone should be beholden to give you (Apple or Google) 30% of every transaction just because it's on an Apple or Android platform. Epic is well within their rights to open their own transaction utility, bypassing that need. Apple and Google have both just done exactly what Tim and Epic's lawyers wanted. I don't think either of them are going to like the results.

    Great for some people, but many people like me had launcher issues and were unable to log on in time. I have to wonder if this was some kind of ploy on their part. I know it sounds sinister, but to many people I spoke with had the same issue, black screen with the launcher not working.

    Uhmmmm... you could have just gone to the website. I got it on my phone for free via the website.

    Exact same crap happened to me. The black screen launcher. I sent them a complaint within the time frame of it being free. I hope they honor my request as I am a huge Total War fan.

    Had the black screen launcher problem as well. I know my cousin and his friends all had this issue as well. Its really a pain in the ass since it kept me and a bunch of other people from getting the game for free. I tried all the fixes and nothing worked. Mysteriously today, it works just fine. This is some serious BS to me and there is no way anyone will convince me this wasn't a problem on their end.

    I see now it wasn't just me.  This is a special kind of wrong they are pulling on people.  Epic store equals epic fail for me!
