Galyonkin said Epic is in the process of developing a self-service form for filing and receiving refunds. For now, players who want their money back will have to open a ticket with Epic Games support.

that the Epic Games store will one day add user reviews. However, developers will have to opt-in to having reviews of their products on the storefront. “Plus we want to have a solution against review-bombing,” he added.

The refund change is not related to, but does follow the Better Business Bureau of Eastern North Carolina doling out an F rating for the Fortnite maker, based on scores of unanswered complaints lodged with the bureau. Most of those complaints involved unauthorized or improper charges, and poor response to customers resolving their accounts.

The BBB said Epic had received 279 total complaints in 2018, 247 of which had gone unanswered.

I will always cheer on the little companies, so good luck to them. I hope they don't bomb this year though. I NEVER liked Steam since it's creation though. Epic Games has a less offensive feel to me. I get plastered with junk games as soon as I log on to Steam now, and it loads slow, crashes, loads tons of crap in my processes that I don't even know what is, etc. Meanwhile Epic Games is only one process. Steam chat is buggy all the time ,and the new updates made it even worse. I can keep going on why I don't like Steam but it stops there. ^_^

Fortnite isn't my kinda game though, I don't like permanent death. I wanna respawn and get revenge. To each their own of course..
