Epic Games is still hard at work trying to make Fortnite: Battle Royale cheater-free, and that includes dealing with the two cheaters the company recently filed lawsuits against. One of the cases, against a minor, is still going forward, but the other appears to have come to a resolution.

As reported here, Minnesotan Charles "Joreallean" Vraspir has settled his copyright infringement and breach of contract case with Epic. Vraspir will not face any penalties unless he persists in "creating, writing, developing, advertising, promoting, and/or distributing anything that infringes Epic's works now or hereafter protected by any of Epic's copyrights." If he does, he faces a $5,000 fine.

Meanwhile, Epic is fighting back against the mother of the other accused cheater, a minor, who claimed that Epic made the defendant's personal information public by submitting his name and address in a letter to the court. Epic countered by saying it didn't know he was a minor and that it was, in fact, the mother who made such private details public. I am not a lawyer, but ... yeah, that's all I've got. I'm not a lawyer, so I'll just sit back and let the courts sort this messy affair out.

Its absolutely terrible that a game dev thinks they need to hurt game players by lawyers in such a early stage of the games development.
Epic Obviously have no pride or respect for anyone but selfish selves, they do not deserve to be a game development company with such disrespect for game players.
Ban players of course! but don't dig game players graves because you have lawyers and loads of CASH to sue with! this is a extremely unethical way to approach such a conflict.

Who cares if there are cheaters in this game - I mean, if you die it literally only takes about 10 seconds to jump into another match. Also, there is no K/D in this game so it really doesn't matter if a cheater kills you - the worst thing a cheater can do is waste 10 seconds of your time.
