Fortnite players accused of cheating just for watching other people play

Fortnite developer Epic Games has falsely accused players of cheating who were simply watching other players’ games.

Players using the ‘spectate game in progress’ feature received warnings that they could be banned from the popular video game for breaking its rules.

“Due to your recent actions you have been warned for ‘Teaming’,” the warning stated. “Please refrain from repeat offences or you may receive an account ban.”
