Fortnite: Hack compensation, the FortCraft clone, and mobile event registration

Were you one of the long list of folks hacked in Fortnite? Epic Games told Kotaku that it’s aware of the mass-hacking going on, at least some of which appears to be originating in Russia and resulting in wild purchases in the game on victims’ credit cards. The good news is the company is also helping players affected.

“We are aware of instances where users’ accounts have been compromised using well-known hacking techniques and are working to resolve these issues directly with those players affected. Any players who believe their account has been compromised should reach out to our player support immediately.”

Meanwhile, if Fortnite isn’t doing it for you, how about FortCraft? That’s Netease’s overt clone of the game, coming straight to Android and iOS. The company is promising a huge map, 13 environments, destructible environments, on-the-fly building, five weapon classes, and three gameplay modes.

Orrrrr you could just sign up for Fortnite’s mobile take, which is currently in signups for its iOS event. ‘Course, Android is not a priority here.

And don’t miss the inbound new explosives!

Stay tuned tomorrow, when I launch my new battle royale title, World of H1PUBG.

Imagine if Netease put just even half the effort into innovation as they do copying, they would pretty much rule the video game industry.

So many engineers, yet so little designers.

Will Netease create a half-dozen Fortnite mobile clones to keep their half-dozen PUBG mobile clones company.

I reported my account was hacked on Feb 22 for 3 transactions around $250.Never heard back. Opened ANOTHER ticket on March 8… still haven;t heard back.

WTF.

Anyone have success?

I’ve had luck with not making my password “123456” or “Password1”, but that’s just me.

Also clicking a link that promises 500 in-game currency, 3 loot crates, and a golden sniper gun just for signing up….not the wisest decisions.

Sounds like this is coming from someone who has never been hacked. I hope people aren’t as big of a dick to you if you get hacked.
