Epic Games sues 2 YouTubers for promoting cheats ⚡⚡⚡ Esports and gaming news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!

YouTubers often use the most inventive and obnoxious ways to find new viewers and increase their revenue. Their efforts may include promotion and distribution of cheats. You can actually find channels with more than a thousand subscribers with just 4 videos, where players only troll enemies with cheats turned on in Fortnite.

Seems like Epic Games wants to scare content creators from promoting cheaters by suing two of them.

Brandon Lucas and his occasional partner Colton Conter work on YouTube channel called Golden Modz that has over 1.7 million subscribers. Some of his videos have recently been suspended after a violation claim from Epic Games. Lucas recently posted a short video where he says that other YouTubers use cheats on their channels and they still are partnered with Epic Games.

According to a report from Engadget, Epic Games won’t be satisfied by removing some of the videos from Golden Modz channel. The company’s lawyers are preparing to litigate and force the content creators to pay additional fees as a punishment. The game developer hopes this move will discourage other people from profiting off the cheats.

Epic Games recently acquired Kamu, a Helsinki-based company that is supposed to improve the Fortnite multiplayer experience and reduce the ability to cheat.
