'Epic Games was not in any way associated with the event that took place in Norwich and we've issued a claim against the organisers in the High Court of London'.
Organized by a company called Exciting Events, Fortnite Live was supposed to be a two-day long festival meant to provide a real-life Fortnite experience, minus the deadly eliminations. Designed to somewhat recreate the experience of Fortnite in the real world, fans were less than impressed with what their tickets got them.
For the full story, read tomorrow's Spalding Guardian.
The event advertised "Live Games playing throughout the day, Dance Battles to end all battles, Challenges, Crazy Competitions, Awsome [sic] activities, Screens of your favourite YouTubers playing non-stop and of course Shopping, and so much more!" There was a climbing wall, go karts, firing range, basketball shooting, laser tag, archery, a bouncy castle, and a cave experience described by one exasperated parent as "a trailer, no bigger than a vehicle, with a tunnel through it".
These comments do not align with the public reaction to the event which emerged over the weekend as disgruntled festival goers began talking to the media and posting on Twitter about the experiences they were having.

We called a meeting on the very next day of the attack and to condemn the attack, we made a decision to cover the photo. Around 40 CRPF personnel were killed in a deadly terror attack on the Srinagar-Jammu National Highway on February 14.

Since they were partitioned in 1947, the two countries have fought three wars - in 1948, 1965 and 1971 - two of them over Kashmir. In a notice, the organisation said they will take strong action against anyone who works with Pakistani artists.
Exciting Events, the hosts of Fortnite Live, announced plans to bring the festival back next year, but it certainly doesn't seem like that'll be an option now.
In defence of the mess that was Fortnite Live, in the inside area there were opportunities to play Fortnite with other fans.
In a statement sent to Eurogamer, Epic said that it would be taking legal action against the organizers. The organiser saw an overwhelming amount of refund requests, handing a number of them out before deactivating the event's official Facebook page.
The legal action has prompted the company behind the show, Exciting Events, to cease trading.
Shaun Lord, who runs the company, was reported as saying he felt his company had been more than fair in offering the refunds on Saturday.
