E:
sorry if that came across as a little crass. i understand if "sneaking a look" on a handset at work.
By the responses it looks like the Epic ppl are amicable to resolving issues.

well, i do hope they would be. tbh, i did quote the reddit reply from epic for fairness but community guidelines on how much to quote in the OP (but why bother, everything is getting ignored anyways and the mods are practically non-existent anymore).

but quoting the article:
Quote:
This thread hasn’t gone completely ignored by Epic Games though, with a member of staff having replied, linking to a blog post on the Epic Games website that is kept updated with information regarding payments. According to this page, there are 43,285 payments promised to players going back to July 2018. Of these, only 4,398 of these have been sent out. It was also stated that they are also waiting for confirmation from 1,687 players for payments to be sent out.
it does seem that close to a year went by w/about ~10% of payments going out.

but idk, epic does get a lot of hate thrown their way, maybe some undeservedly, i really don't care about publisher wars between steam, epic, uplay, origin etc. i only care about getting a game at a decent price.

but if anyone held a contest and was slow to pay, or no pay, i wouldn't look much to them in other matters. unless they just admitted to royally screwing up if they did; that i can almost always forgive if they are honest.

Remember the golden rule of statistics: A personal sample size of one is a sufficient basis upon which to draw universal conclusions.
Upload the computer to Dropbox and provide a link to it so others may download it to examine and give advice for repairs.

It's pointless to mock any such sort when pro badminton exists.

i don't really get the bias against children winning a "competitive" event, a reward is just as well deserved.

i mean if said "child" could best a thousand other "adults" then i'm sure as heck said "child" is worth looking into.

trolling an adult is very dangerous, don't try it at home nor at work. you don't want to play tag with a rabid man.

It's not about that. It's about them not being able to join in a legally binding contract. Not only that but, there's a whole host of child labor/taking advantage/interstate/national...etc...laws that come into play.......Also that child falsified identity info....so there's that.

well yes i'm aware of these faults, but the fact that they have rules against children joining in these competitions is already very biased.
plus this is different from employment, its a competition that doesn't even involve a labor contract, so most of those clauses shouldn't even apply to these events.
