CARY – Epic Games didn’t take lightly the fact some organizers put on a “Fortnite Live”  event in the UK over the weekend that charged attendees $20 for a variety of activities, including playing some of Epic’s globally popular multiplayer online game.

“The quality of our player experience is incredibly important to us, whether it’s inside the game or at official public events like last year’s Fortnite Pro-Am,” an Epic Games spokesperson said.

“Epic Games was not in any way associated with the event that took place in Norwich and we’ve issued a claim against the organizers in the High Court of London.”

The comments were made to gaming news site Eurogamer.

The event was panned by critics yet the organizer, Shaun Lord of Exciting Events, has said it will return next year.

“It should have been a fun day out, but the whole event was a shambles. My kids spent most of the day in queues,” a woman told the UK Guardian. “Fortnite is all about hunting people down and killing them – I felt like doing that to the people who organized it.”
