Fortnite Battle Royale: Payout Guide

How do I get paid?

If you have won the competition and have already confirmed your details, follow these steps to get paid as soon as possible:

1. Log in to the Epic Games account you used to compete. Only the winners whose data are verified get access to this link.

Attention: if you log in to another account, the processing of the request may be delayed. In addition, you run the risk of losing the status of a winner, because of which you wonít be able to get a prize for participating in these competitions.

2. Choose a convenient way to receive a prize and provide additional necessary information. Remember that PayPal automatically rejects transactions worth more than $ 20 thousand for personal accounts. If the payment exceeds $ 20 thousand, we recommend using the transfer of payments to a bank account. Due to the provision of false or incomplete information, the processing of the request may be delayed. In addition, you run the risk of losing the status of a winner, because of which you wonít be able to get a prize for participating in these competitions.

3. Select a tax region and provide the required data.

Note: If you are under the age of 16 and are currently living in France, the support team will need to contact you separately to send the prize in accordance with local laws.

4. If you live in the United States, provide the name of the owner of the TIN, social security number, full address: city, state, zip code. If you live outside the United States, provide the name of the owner of the TIN, full address: city, zip code, area (if any), country.

5. Before sending a request, click on the DocuSign link, which leads to the prize recipient form, forms W9 and W8BEN. The link is at the bottom of the page. Enter all the necessary information in the DocuSign form that opens.

Important information on completing the W8-BEN form: Clause 5: If you do not know what information to provide, contact your tax advisor. Point 6: you must specify the tax identification number assigned to you in the country of which you are a tax resident.

6. Verify that all the information provided on the DocuSign form is correct, and click on the confirmation button.Once youíve completed the DocuSign form, return to the Epic Games page and click the Submit button to complete the process.

I have questions about the provision of billing information. Who can I ask them? Contact the support service as accurately as possible describing the situation and, if necessary, providing screenshots.

What should I do if I provide incorrect payment information? Contact support with the email address associated with your account and display name. Once you provide the required data, you will be given permission to edit the data.

I have indicated a PayPal account, but it seems to me that the payment will exceed $ 20,000. What to do? Contact support with the email address associated with your account and display name. Once you provide the required data, you will be given permission to edit the data. As soon as you receive permission to edit the data, select the option of receiving payment using a bank account so that funds are transferred to you.

Please note that for PayPal corporate accounts, the maximum amount of payments received is greater than for personal ones.

When I click the submit button, it turns gray. Why? You may have clicked the Submit button before you finished filling out DocuSign documents. If the information above the "Send" button is displayed as blocked (the fields have become inaccessible for editing) and you have finished filling out DocuSign documents, you do not have to click the "Send" button again.

Why do I need to fill out a W-9 or W-8Ben form? In accordance with U.S. tax laws, game developers are required to collect and share with government agencies some information about users who are awaiting payouts.For these purposes, form W-9 and / or form W-8Ben is used (under appropriate conditions).

The payment amount was smaller than I expected (a). Why? This could be due to tax withholding. When processing a payment, developers make an auxiliary tax withholding on the prize amount for residents and non-residents of the United States and send funds to the tax office on your behalf. Epic currently holds 24% of the prize money for US residents and 30% for non-US residents. If you believe that an error occurred and the amount of the tax deduction turned out to be incorrect, send an email to the support service, indicating the email address associated with your account and the display name so that they can help you.

I have already indicated (a) payment information for one of the past tournaments. Do I need to provide her again to take part in new competitions? Not. If you previously submitted payment / tax information and received payments for winning tournaments, you do not need to provide this information again in order to participate in new competitions. However, additional information may be required - in this case, they will contact you.

Why didnít the money come to me? If you have not received a payment, make sure that you have provided complete and accurate payment information.

I canít provide billing information because the system requires you to enter some kind of code.Where to get it? If the system asks you to enter a code when you try to enter payment information, this could happen for one of the following reasons.

Fortnite Battle Royale: Epic Games Store

How do I use the Epic Games Store?

The area highlighted in the image below is the Epic Games store menu where you can go to the main sections of the client.

There are three sections on the main page:

  1. News : The latest updates and messages from Epic Games are displayed here.
  2. Recently Played : The last thing you played is displayed here. By moving the cursor here, you can go to the game page or launch it.
  3. Online Friends : Three online friends are displayed here. By clicking on the name of a friend, you will open a chat with him.

In the "Shop" section you will see the available games. Click on one of them to go to the game page where you can find out the details and buy it.

The " Library " section displays your existing games.

  1. After installation, the game tile becomes colored.
  2. If the game is not installed, then its tile is black and white.

Click the gear icon on the game tile to expand client options, such as:

Click on "Friends" to open the friends menu.

  1. Your network status can be set in the side tile of the profile.
  2. You can add friends in this tile.
  3. In this tile, you can change the communication settings.

Click on a friendís name and you will open the parameters associated with it.

In the Unreal Engine section, you can access the game engine. The following tabs are here:

How to confirm the installation of the game? To confirm the installation of the game files, go to the game in your library and click on the gear icon.

After that, select "Confirm" in the drop-down menu.

After checking, you will be able to start. Select "Run."

Probably, they will pay me 88% of the proceeds only at first? No, this is a regular bet. With current costs and the state of the economy, 12% is a profitable share for Epic.

What platforms does the Epic Games store support? The store supports Windows and Mac. Support for other open platforms, including Android, will appear later.

When will the Epic Games store open for developers? Now the store is just starting to work, and gradually additional opportunities will appear in it.

How are games for sale in the Epic Games store selected? First of all, attention is drawn to great games that fans of Fortnite who already use the store might like. Developers are selected who have a fairly flexible schedule and have a desire to work with the store at an early stage of the platformís existence. There is no strict standard - many different factors are taken into account.

What does Epic Games mean by promising a direct connection with the players? When making a purchase, the player can share with the developers his email address if he wants to receive letters from them. In addition, players who buy games from certain developers will see their announcements in their news feed.

My game is based on Unity or another engine. Will I be able to sell it in the Epic Games store? Yes, the store does not focus on any one technology. Epic wants to delight the audience with great games, regardless of which engine they are created on.

My game is created on Unreal Engine. Why should I sell it at the Epic Games store? UE4 not only facilitates the development of games for all platforms. Selling a game based on UE4 in the Epic Games store, the authors do not pay royalties for using the engine. If you, for example, have a standard free license with deductions of 5%, you will not have to pay them from sales in the Epic Games store. The amount of deductions for the sale of the game on other platforms will remain the same - 5%.

Iím a developer, what does 88/12 income distribution mean to me? Income distribution terms imply that you will receive more money for each copy of the game sold in the Epic Games store. After paying taxes and other possible deductions for each dollar, you will receive 88 cents. Epic believes this is fairer than the traditional 70/30 distribution adopted on most digital platforms. Some payment methods involve more expenses than generally accepted. In such cases, Epic transfers the additional costs to the buyer as a fee for processing the payment. Your share of revenue will not decrease due to the fact that the buyer has chosen a more costly method of payment.

What is an author support program? How can it be useful? The author support program is designed to help great authors promote games from the Epic Games store. The authors receive a percentage of the proceeds from the sale of the game to each buyer they attracted. The developers themselves set the percentage of remuneration to the authors, and Epic will pay the first 5% within the first 24 months.

Now the program is attended by more than 10,000 authors, behind which there are tens of millions of supporters, and their number is increasing every day. This means that developers will have instant access to thousands of authors who can promote their games without too much hassle. Epic is confident that this system will allow for a more direct and reliable connection between game creators and authors (streamers, opinion leaders, etc.).

In which countries is the Epic Games store available? The Epic platform can be used by players from all over the world, except China and countries where it is prohibited by US law, including North Korea and Iran. In certain countries, for example, in South Korea, there are additional legal requirements that you need to take into account in the game if you want to distribute it there.

Does the Epic Games store have regional prices? Yes, the store supports regional prices. Also, the store has prepared a table of recommended regional discounts taking into account the characteristics of each region, which is regularly updated.

Are there mandatory sales on the platform at the Epic Games store? Not. Large-scale sales of games are planned, but participation in them will be voluntary.

What is the system of user reviews and ratings for the Epic platform? In the future, the store will introduce a rating system of games for those wishing to join it.

Iím having problems installing the purchased game. What to do?If you have difficulty installing the game purchased from the Epic Games store, restart your computer to sync purchases. If, after restarting the computer, problems still occur, contact the support team by clicking on the "Contact Us" button.

In which currencies are prices displayed and what currencies are accepted for payment? Regional prices are displayed in US dollars, British pounds sterling, Euros, Polish zlotys, Russian rubles, South Korean won, Japanese yen, Turkish lira and Ukrainian hryvnia.

What happens if I get the contents of the Permafrost kit and give me another one? If for some account you already have the Permafrost kit and you bought or received one more as a gift, it can be exchanged for 3000 V-bucks.

Fortnite Battle Royale: Walkthrough Tips

Improved interface for the "Battle with the storm"

The main base. Now in the sections of the menu you will see different rooms of the main base and the characters that you meet as the plot develops.

Command Center On the new tab "Management" it is easy to follow your development and study the features of the selected hero. Here you can find all the functions that become available as you progress through the campaign: you can quickly change heroes, view characteristics and manage heroes and survivors to strengthen the base.

The power of the main base is now called simply "power." With each new level you increase the characteristics and get rewards, including drawings and resources. In the same section, you can see information about experience amplifiers and quickly activate amplifications.

Heroes A new character has appeared in the game that will help bring the heroes into shape - the major! After you meet him in the game, he will appear in the training room. With a major, you can increase the level of heroes and manage them, as well as gain access to the defenders, expeditions and properties of the hero. Using the "Hero Properties" function, you can view information about the hero and the cells of the operative and support. A back button has been added in the upper left corner to make the menu even more convenient. And you can still press the back button on the gamepads.

Survivors. On the survivors screen you will see another new member of the team - the director. You will meet him in Stonelands. The director will help to deal with the troops and survivors. In addition, a new function has been added to the game - autocomplete. With autocompletion, you will be sure that the strongest survivors are in the squad. By default, this feature is enabled, but you can disable it.

A new screen has also been added to the game with a brief explanation of how to correctly assign survivors to units. Finally, a feature has been added that allows you to quickly switch between different types of items. Use the arrows to switch between heroes, blueprints, survivors, defenders and resources!

Improvements. The room for improvements is managed by Kevin, a robot who will help you deal with gadgets and tools. Here you can buy or improve gadgets, as well as improve the performance of items, such as the size of a backpack or the sharpness of a pick. To do this, you need to spend the improvement points that you get for leveling up in missions. To decide how best to spend points, you can read the description of each level of improvement.

Study. Lars, our favorite scientist and driver of a flying van, settled in the laboratory. He will help to distribute research points to improve your characteristics. Here are new bonus counters, filling in which you can get additional improvements. The rate of accumulation of points and the capacity of the laboratory increase with increasing levels.

Arsenal. In the arsenal, you can still do transformations, work with drawings, objects and resources, as well as a collection book. But with the update, a new assistant appeared in the arsenal - the gunsmith Clip. You will meet her during the campaign. Like all self-respecting gunsmiths, the Clip takes pride in the drawings of powerful weapons and stores them in a conspicuous place.

Tasks. The tab "Tasks" is now displayed first, on it you can see the maps of the campaign and tasks and the corresponding rewards. This is not the only change. The Play button has been moved down to the screen where everyone is used to seeing the gameís launch button. In addition, the task log can now be opened using the large button directly below the "Play" button. This will allow you to quickly open the magazine from the task map, so you can mark tasks and check the map. It is planned to gradually make using the quest map even easier.

Support for beginners. Several changes have been made to make the game more enjoyable for beginners.Previously, the game had many tasks that explained the functions of the interface, but the tasks were not very useful, in addition, players often did not notice them. Therefore, the developers refused such training. Now that a new important feature is becoming available, a short contextual prompt appears. For new players, it might seem too difficult to understand the abundance of tabs and features available in the previous interface from the very beginning of the game. Now these functions are supplemented with a brief hint and become available gradually, as the player moves along the story and gets acquainted with the new inhabitants of the base.

How does this affect my account? But what about the skill tree? Defender units? The developers removed the tree of research and skills: after the update, other elements will perform their task. It was hard to figure out the tree, it was time-consuming, and some of the options in it were not very attractive. Now you can change the main parameters that affect the game in the improvement room.

Functions necessary for game progress, such as opening survivor cells, development, etc., you will receive as a reward for completing the campaign and interacting with new characters at the main base. In addition, some restrictions related to class skills were removed that did not allow playing for certain characters. So it will be easier for beginners to get comfortable in the game.

Now, without a tree of skills, you will receive improvement points, various resources and experience, as well as the opportunity to upgrade your features in return for increasing your account level. After one of the upcoming updates, players who have reached the maximum level will receive rewards for their experience. The experience of such players will be taken into account already from update 6.30, so that in the future they will receive all well-deserved rewards.

When the changes take effect, you will not lose performance and progress, but perhaps become even stronger.You will automatically receive all the rewards that rely on the achieved level, and all open functions will remain available even if you have not reached the place of their receipt in the updated campaign. In addition, you will receive research points at the Lars Laboratory in accordance with your research progress.

Developers understand that there are a lot of changes, so those who are already playing will be able to reset the distributed points in the improvement room and laboratory several times to figure out how everything works.Finally, it is worth noting that the need to pre-select defenders has been removed from the game. The rules governing how many defenders you can call for missions and defending the storm shield remain in effect, but now you can simply call any defender with a guard post.

What is self-refund of cosmetic items, and how does it work? Using the means for self-return of cosmetic items, you can return no more than three non-expendable cosmetic items for the entire life of your account. The B-bucks you spent on these items will automatically return to you at the touch of a button! To independently return cosmetic items, follow these steps.
