Key remapping and wagers
Epic solidified their stance on key remapping explaining that it is allowed to remap keys in Fortnite. Including the use of reWASD and other third-party software, as they specifically state that double-movement binds are allowed on keyboard and mouse. However, macro inputs are bannable.
Wagering on any game whether it be “betting, wagering or gambling on any Fortnite match or game may result in one or more of the disciplinary actions discussed above – including but not limited to, official warnings or an account ban”
Ever since the shakedown mechanic was added this has been an issue in the Fortnite competitive scene. Players leaving the game intentionally not allowing opponents to gain intel on their teammates.
“Intentionally disconnecting from a match in an attempt to gain an unfair advantage goes against the spirit of Fortnite competition,” said the competitive team in the blog post. “Accordingly, all players must be sure not to disconnect from the game while in a knocked down, ‘Down-But-Not-Out’ (DBNO) state.”
Epic has gone into detail on explaining the rules to ensure fair play during the upcoming FNCS and we hope players will stick to these rules as they have no excuse to break them.
