Epic Bars Specific Actions During Fortnite Competition To Prevent Cheating
With a new competitive year beginning for Fortnite, Epic Games has decided to address in-game activity that lends itself to cheating -- particularly communication with opposing players that can be used in kill-trading. The company made note of the issue in a post earlier this week in which they clarified some rules that players have been confused by in the past. Of note is the "Communication" bullet point under the Competitive Fortnite's Collision Rule, which addresses, "Sending or receiving signals (both verbal and non-verbal) to communicate with opposing players."
Apparently, over the last year, players have been confused by rulings made in regard to this specific rule, so as of now Epic has officially stated that they are "taking action against any kind of in-game communication between opponents via signaling in official tournament matches." This includes, but is not limited to, pick-axe swinging, emoting, toy tossing, and yes, even jumping.
It is worth noting that playing in a pacifist style is still allowed. Just don't get caught signaling while you're doing it.
The post also encourages players to report these activities by contacting the player support team.
