[WCCF]Epic Games are Allegedly not Paying Competitive Fortnite Prize Money

Quote:
We all know that Epic Games aren’t exactly short of cash, that much is certain. If allegations posted by players on Reddit are to be believed, Epic Games are saving a bit of cash by not paying players the prize money won in Competitive Fortnite games. Or, to be more precise, they are allegedly not paying a large portion of players.

It was only recently, in February, that Epic Games announced the second Fortnite World Cup, with a prize pool of $100m. This is following a 2018 Fortnite World Cup with the same prize pool. More than the world cups, Fortnite has had a number of competitive events. The problem is that, according to a thread in the Fortnite Competitive Reddit posted by user Returnoftruth, players aren’t getting paid.

People who live in Asia are not surprised that Tencent (Chinese company that owns majority of Epic) is not paying a lot of people properly. Almost every Chinese company in Asia finds a way to cheap out and come up with a reason not to pay people. This isn't the first time.

So the source for this is a random user's thread on Reddit? I know they had an issue where a 12 year old lied about his age and therefore was not paid....for obvious reasons. Might this have anything to do with that?
