Epic Games gave up, all players will keep their earned Battle Pass Tiers

If you’re not familiar with what exactly the title points to, it is yesterday’s Battle Pass bug in Fortnite, which granted extra Battle Pass Tiers for free. It is most likely a huge loss for Epic Games, but however, it will be even a bigger pain if they have decided to revert the changes rather than just keep it as it is.

Yesterday’s bug has allowed millions of players to gain free Battle Pass Tiers, without even bothering to play the game, thanks to one rigged Challenge in the third week of Fortnitemares. The challenge enlisted in Fortnitemares’ week 3 was the staged challenge which required a visit of three named locations in different matches.

Now that Epic Games has decided to give up on penalties and leave it as it is, broader frustration is expected to come from those who missed the exploit or never had a chance to do it for unknown reasons. However, the fix has been released and the glitch works no longer.

Obviously, Epic Games is more for the people as they have committed their mistake and did not blame the community for exploiting. It’s one of those reasons why the company receives such a positive feedback and why Fortnite has a firm community and a huge player base.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
