Completely agree laws should have teeth and in fact think the FTC is way too relaxed on it, it's just there are so many popular zynga-like games that have much more vicious and greedy systems to trick people and also aimed at kids, that the fortnite target and price still makes me rise an eyebrow or two.

I would love it if this is the FTC making a point that could push others to get in line. It's definitely needed.

I also agree it's cool about the half being a refund and that customers are being heard here :)

I got zero proof and basically just conspiracy theory from me here but, I find it pretty weird how hard Epic is getting hit for this. Did they make enemies in bad places by fighting for so long with Valve and Apple and trying to change some practices that are very profitable for some people?
