We got Epic's money, so here is your backing pledge back now that we don't need it anymore. Also, Fuck You.

Reading that more in detail, it's not even the whole pledge that gets refunded

because
In the case rewards within your reward tier, such as in-game content, have already been created and implemented, a full refund may not be possible.

2006 was DX10 so no still 8 years
I wasn't trying to argue against the 8 years, I was trying to point out how small a percentage is going to be stuck in DX10 vs DX11.

However, if we are going to debate it, geforce 4xx series came out over 9 years ago, not 8.

And I still agree on your overall point, not a lot of them around anymore.

That's cutting off a huge chunk of their mobile/laptop customers.
But I doubt it affects the bottom line.

I'm going to guess it isn't a huge chunk otherwise they wouldn't do it.
About 3% ish of average PC gamers
https://store.steampowered.com/hwsurvey/

Versus 90% DX12 capable GPU (of which 25% stubbornly aren't on win 10 yet), and 5% with DX11 capable GPU.

Keep in mind this is really prior to vista (vista was later upgraded to DX11) so really just XP, and win 7 launched with dx11.
That's 2006, which is at this point like 13 years old.
Is a 13 year old laptop even going to run fortnite at this point?
DX11 came out 2009 which is just 3 years later. So you are talking 10-13 year old laptops (or desktops), a brief 3 year period.

I can understand not wanting to move on from win 7, but even that is dx11.

this dude is an f'ing idiot it was not about things not working it was about released a game you meant to play repetitively kinda like destiny or Warframe and they gave us 3 repeatable missions in the form of strongholds and some open world stuff that was kinda dismal. they created an amazing world but then did so little with it. this game needed at least 1 more year in development or a better Dev Team leading it.

I just think of all those PC users that bitched and complained about how they don't get a DVD to install the game in a retail box all that comes in there was a steam code. pretty much making every game on the market a steam exclusive. But there were those white hat keyboard warriors living in there moms basement and not bathing for weeks on end. That never changed a thing and eventually, no one listened to them and just went with the flow. now those same and new keyboard warriors will do the same and the results, in the end, will also be the same. I am here for the ride and enjoy this useless banter. ROFL

if you use any social media your standing up and speaking on quicksand

I'm on pretty solid ground.

zero social media accounts.
proactively block social media widgets / marketing tracking / 3rd party frames and scripts
Run a hardened Linux as my surfing OS
Run through a non-logging VPN service.
Run a real firewall with non-loged secure DNS
All my phone apps (which I don't have many) are set not to access other apps nor work on cellular (Plan on buying a Librem 5 phone next)
Run my Windows 7 gaming machine offline except for game installations and game patch downloads.

So, yeah... I actually am proactive to keep as much privacy as possible.... short of running TOR and surfing the Dark web.

Is it fullproof?

Nope.

But my footprint is exponentially smaller than most people's and I do find value in that. Fuck Marketers! Some of the biggest scum on the planet.

/shrug


Do you use Steam because the data they're collecting is so insecure Epic could just scup it up

no need for links just exit the program and run your game from the short cut not sure how I can dummy it down for you. I don't have Epic Store Run in the background while I play games sold in the Epic Store. Second Be self-informed you have heard of a google search before asking a stupid question. So in the end that my final answer Bob!

Just tested this with two of the free games I got from Epic. You are wrong. Maybe do your own test before telling people to do a Google search and looking stupid.

did you do a google search to be informed on how to do it properly or did you just bumble-"F" your way through it?

How about you do some research and find out that even if you close the service, it pulls a epic (snerk) fuckton of info each time it is force started to launch a game?

https://www.reddit.com/r/PhoenixPoint/comments/b0rxdq/epic_game_store_spyware_tracking_and_you/

That is the same shit the Origin client did before people called them on it. Maybe instead of shilling or fanboi-ing for epic, you can help them by calling them out on their bullshit?

The simple fact is that right now they are more concerned about gaining market share than doing the right thing. If you are all into that, good for you, but don't get your panties in a wad if some of us don't like it. Especially since epic and sweeney have some shady ties to totalitarian governments to be concerned with too.

Its also 2019 and most people are now sensitive to what applications are doing behind their backs. Just because Origin might have done it nearly a decade ago doesn't make it right.

The fact they went around a valid api method and scrapped data directly from a private file from another application says lot about what kind of company they are. The way they went about this disrespects the consumer.

if you use any social media your standing up and speaking on quicksand
