By the way, lightsabers and blaster rifles are dropping in regular matches right now. :messenger_smiling_with_eyes:


Armed Stormtrooper NPCs at the crash sites of the Tie Fighters in the event too. They’re um... a lot more accurate than the movie versions.

To give a bit more context, from what I can remember Epic has never intimidated the leaks community with regards to past events.

Epic is well aware that the leakers exist and they keep things interesting by encrypting some items while letting others be datamined ASAP.

They even had one item many months ago which had text that would never be seen ingame. Basically it was an Easter egg for the dataminers, something like "That's weird, you shouldn't be reading this.".

The worst thing you could make out of this message is that Epic is washing their hands off any potential legal issues between Disney and the leakers.

Lastly, the leaks subreddit understood the message and took it well.

For anyone wondering, full event. I would grab a proper YouTube video, but looking earlier, there was so much clickbait I couldn’t find real results.

Without spoiling anything all I can tell you is that the Fortnite event is actually better than the movie itslef. Be warned

Fortnite is doing an event this afternoon with JJ Abrams and new Star Wars footage, so Epic threatened known leakers that they better not dare leak the content before the event.
They did not warn shit, they asked. You work for CNN or something?

Away with the fairies
Member the debate years ago about not putting ads in games?

Member when all the gamers went fucking nuts at the ads on the dashboard and in that one EA game?

Member when gaming was about gaming?

I member.

Yet here we are, Soyboy cucks going crazy over ads inside a game.

It wasn't anything special, I dunno why they were so worried about leaks.Maybe people would've said how stupid it was and no one would've watched it?

It is kinda bizarre seeing the game slowly turn into a more refined version PlayStation home.
