    CS:GO Betting Scammer PhantomL0rd Wins Case Against Twitch

    Remember this guy? Of course you don't, nobody does.

    Back in the far off time of 2016, Twitch dished out a lifetime ban against Counter-Strike: Global Offensive streamer James "PhantomL0rd" Varga.

    Apple Terminates Epic Games Developer Account

    This is not a termination of accounts related to Unreal Engine devs.

    Today, Apple followed through with part of their threat that they would terminate Epic Games' developer account. This is not the same as their threat to terminate the accounts of all Unreal Engine developers. That specific case was shot down in court earlier this week. However, that ruling still left the door open for Apple to terminate the account specifically related to Epic Games, the one used by Fortnite.
