Epic Games It has very clearly established the rules of Fortnite Battle Royale, and no matter how good a player you are, you have to abide by them. That has been the case of Zenon, a 9-year-old Brazilian player who has been kicked out of game competition for four years, for not meeting the minimum age required to play Fortnite located at 12 years old.
The name of Zenon is one of the most famous in the competitive landscape of Fortnite, reaching qualify for tournaments like FNCS Solos, where they have cash prizes that reach millions of dollars. However, earlier this week, Zenon received from Epic Games the expulsion from the competitive section
The prohibition lasts for 4 years and applies only to the competitive section of the game: Zenon will be able to continue playing the other modes Fortnite. In addition, although those 4 years may seem an exaggerated measure, if we take into account Epic Games has banned him from competing until he turns 13. As we say, it is the recommended minimum age to play the popular title.
Why create a game thats clearly targeted towards kids if youre not going to let them play it? This shit breaks my fkn heart actually, let the kid play @EpicGames@FortniteGame https://t.co/4rilPleh4R– FaZe Banks (@Banks) May 5, 2020
In the video that FaZe Banks has echoed, that we have left you on these lines, you can see the moment Zenon receives notice of his removal, with his father trying to comfort him when he burst into tears. "Let the boy play"Banks asks Epic Games. However, as we said, the rules are clear: if you are 9 years old, you are far from the minimum age required to play, much less to compete in tournaments where there are prizes in metal.
It should be noted that, according to recent reports, most players in Fortnite are too small for the Epic Games game. As the study showed Generation Z and Fortnite: New Ethical Video Game Design Paradigms, 60% of children who play Fortnite are below the recommended age, which is 12 years in Europe.
