Yeah growth in people who never pay for anything perhaps.

Anyone with functional brains knew that epic will lose money for their free games and exclusivity while Steam will keep thriving without doing anything

Tim doesn't want to understand that people want a good services and features to move to Epic, not just games

My point is that valve drones are lying braindamaged tards who propagated for like 2 years how epic is paying hundred millions of dollar for games in reality its just a peanut sale guarantee
>>
>>554322234
The fact that fortnite raked in 2 billion means they can keep doing anti consumer/industry practices by simply (((buying))) their way to most market share without rly taking massive risks.

>>554322407
steam will thriving until epic just growths them out just how every business works
Ebay was thriving too

People claiming games for free in a website means they don't buy said game on another one. How stupid can you get?

>>554322069
>main pc store
Maybe if they actually cared about improving their storefront it would have a slight chance at that. Over 2 years and they still don't have a shopping cart. That shouldn't take even a month to implement.

Bet you're getting paid peanuts too.
>>
>>554322480
They are paying hundreds of millions in all of their games that don't turn a profit

>Borderlands 3 EGS Gross Revenue $77m
>EGS Life to Date Net Revenue $9.2m
>100% of $80m minimum guarantee recouped

DO YOU HAVE A BACKUP PLAN, TIMOTHY?

>>554322069
>$80 million in the first 2 weeks
They say it like no one knows that 90% of any game sells is in it's first 2 weeks.

In other words Epic is losing money. Like everyone knew. Like everyone says. Like the numbers prove. In order to lose money Epic is making the market worse. In order to fight against a "monopoly" which isn't a monopoly at all Epic is using monopolistic business practices which are in truth the entire reason monopolies are bad in the first place. Having one entity in control of something isn't the inherent problem of monopolies; it's the monopolistic business practices that are bad for customers. If Epic had unlimited money it would purchase exclusivity for all games for all time and that would kill competition. What they're doing is monopolistic in nature. It's hypocritical to do this while crying about Steam. Fuck Epic, and fuck you.
