Epic lets Youtuber, Streamer and Co. profit from ingame purchases of their fans in Fortnite during an event.
Epic’s latest Event Support a Creator focuses on the content creators around Fortnite. These include Youtuber, Streamer and Cosplayer. Anyone who creates content around Fortnite will receive a share of the event’s profits when fans buy V bucks in-game for the real money currency.
The developer wants to honor and support everyone who creates content around Fortnite. The event starts next week on Monday, October 8th with the next Fortnite update and runs until December 31st.
In order to participate, fans only need to select Support a Creator when buying in the shop or via the Loot tab in “Save the World”. Then simply enter the Epic tag (the username) of your favorite creator. This remains selected for the rest of the event. Every time you spend V-Bucks (bought or earned in the game), you get a part of the revenue. You have to support a creator for at least 14 days, but you can change after that without any problems.
How to participate as Creator
If you are a Streamer, Youtuber, Cosplayer, Artist, Musician or you create content for Fortnite via another platform, you can apply for the event. Information on how to apply for the “Support a Creator” event can be found on the official website.
You must regularly create Fortnite content and have at least 1,000 followers on any platform. In addition, you must complete the Business Partner Agreement with Epic, follow the Creators Code of Conduct, and accept payments in the form offered. The financial contribution is five dollars or the equivalent of the local currency per 10,000 V bucks.
Google has announced in a blog entry that the independent but less popular “YouTube Gaming” app will soon be discontinued. In the future, the gaming content from the app will all be focused on YouTube itself.
Since 2015, YouTube has offered gamers an independent app to view game content such as Let’s Play streams or Walkthroughs. The aim was to ensure that gaming specific content could be found “all in one place”.
Google has now announced that the app and thus also the “YouTube Gaming” service will be discontinued in March 2019. Instead, all content on the topic will in future be available at youtube.com/gaming.
In its blog post, YouTube cites the fact that it is possible to reach significantly more users with the same content on YouTube itself, although the app also has a “strong and dynamic community”. Last year, YouTube counted 200 million daily users in the gaming channels on its website alone.
YouTube Gaming: Features Remain Preserved
However, users of the YouTube gaming app will not have to do without the popular features of this app in the future. Super Chat, Dark Theme and Channel Memberships will remain available in the future.
In addition, overview pages will be created for individual games, but also for publishers or developers, under which any content on the topic complexes can be found. YouTube hopes that this will make it easy to find content on lesser-known games.
In addition, YouTuber, whose content is very popular at a certain point in time, is to be found under the sub-item “On The Rise”. The weekly presentation of a new Creator is also planned.
Nothing in life is free – this rule also and especially applies to free-to-play games. The developers of Fortnite also have to be able to afford a roof over their heads and so that their cartoonish shooter (now more than that) makes enough profit, they have introduced the so-called V-Bucks.
The silver coins are the premium currency of the immensely successful game. You can buy cute lama piñatas in the in-game shop, from which purely cosmetic items such as skins and gliders will fall. If you want to stand out from the online community, you can hardly get around such eye-catchers.
You can both unlock V-Bucks and buy them for real money in the shop. The problem: The virtual coins are – how could it be otherwise – only damn hard to get if you don’t want to lose real money. Worse still, in the game’s free battle-royal mode, farming the currency is almost hopeless. If you don’t want to gamble dozens of hours for a starvation wage (or alternatively invest a small fortune in the battle pass), you will inevitably have to play the paid save the world mode. Only in this “premium” mode of the game are there enough opportunities to make enough bucks. Find out more about these and how you can earn V-Bucks most efficiently below.
The creative way – why not learn about internet safety and get the chance to win 100K V-Bucks?
Sounds strange? A prevention website wants to draw attention with this unconventional method to the issue of online scams and internet safety. You can register and participate -no fee or whatsoever. The only catch – you will only get the chance to win V-Bucks, nothing guaranteed. But since you got nothing to lose and 100K to win, even I did it. Did not win tho.
Fortnite: Prices of V-Bucks in the shop for PS4, PC and Xbox One
You don’t have the time or the air to save yourself a lot of money, or you just don’t want to buy a certain cosmetic? There are many reasons to invest some real money in Fortnite. This is all the more true as the Battle Royale mode of the kid friendly shooter is completely free to play; in case of doubt there are a few Euros left over that could be knocked on the head.
If you want to buy V-Bucks in the shop, you pay the same prices regardless of your platform. These are staggered as follows:
1.000 V-Bucks – 10 Euros
2,800 V bucks – 25 euros
7.500 V-Bucks – 60 Euro
13.500 V-Bucks – 100 Euro
The real-money prizes in the premium currency are the same as in almost any other free-to-play game: the more euros you take in your hand, the greater the discount. Whether one should, therefore, butter 100 euros directly into a game, however, must make each with himself and his wallet.
Earn V Bucks for Battle Royale: How to farm efficiently
Even if you don’t become an in-game millionaire within hours, there are surprisingly many ways to hoard a little treasure. How the methods work in detail and how much gravel they jump, you can read below.
Daily login reward: earn V-Bucks by logging in daily
This is probably the easiest way to get your hands on free V-Bucks. For every first login per day, a small amount of the game currency can be credited to your account. Of course you can’t make big jumps with it, but in the long run, something will get around. All you have to remember is to heat up the game once a day, even if you end it immediately afterwards because you don’t feel like or don’t have time to play.
The distribution is not uniform at the beginning and varies frequently. But if you log in persistently, you can look forward to the following sums after the first 70 days:
You will receive 150 V bucks every seven days.
Every 28th day you will receive 300 V bucks.
Each 112th day you will receive 800 V bucks.
V-Bucks through challenges
The challenges are primarily for beginners, as they are only possible until your home base reaches level 10. After all, you’ll get 50 V-Bucks for each challenge, so make as many as you can.
Basically, you can only have three of them in your log at a time, but you can exchange one order per day for another. You can process a maximum of nine jobs per day. For each order you complete, you will be rewarded with 50 V-Bucks, so that you can reach a maximum of 450 units of the coveted currency per day.
However, you can increase this sum with a handful of modifiers. For example, you will receive a nice bonus payment for completing tasks within a certain area: Of course, you can also spend V-Bucks earned in PvE mode on items in Battle Rale mode.
V-Bucks with storm shield defence farms
Another lucrative way to get free V-Bucks is the Storm Shield Defense missions in Save the World mode. There are always several of these quest points scattered on specific maps in different locations. Below is a list of all defence missions on the maps and how many V-Bucks you will receive if you successfully complete them.
If you are new to Fortnite Battle Royale, here’s a hint: certain areas below a certain level prove impossible. The best place to start is Steinwald, which is quite easy for beginners.
Home base Storm Shield Defense 1 to 6 – 100 V-Bucks each
Canny Valley Storm Shield Defense 1 to 6 – 100 V bucks each
Plankerton Storm Shield Defense1 to 6 – 100 V-Bucks each
Twine Peaks Storm Shield Defense 1 to 6 – 100 V-Bucks each
V-Bucks preserved by milestones (collection)
The milestones in your collection book earn you by far the most V-Bucks – 500 pieces per completed collection. However, it will also take considerably more time to unlock them. Basically, you should only include those things in your collection that are duplicate or no longer needed, because once they are in the collection, they are gone forever.
As in the past seasons, the rumor is that the Tilted Towers in Fortnite: Battle Royale will be released for launch. Whether meteorites, rockets or giant cubes, they could all destroy the city, right?
Fortnite and the conspiracy theories: In Season 3, players have found irrefutable evidence that the Tilted Towers are being destroyed by a giant meteor. Epic has fuelled these speculations with signs on the roofs of the city.
At the end everything was half as wild, only Dusty Depot was partially destroyed, the resulting crater is called Dusty Divot since that day.
Tilted Towers could have gone down in Season 4 as well: The visitor launched a gigantic rocket that confused the dimensions and turned the swamps of Moisty Mire into a desert. Here, too, some were firmly convinced that Tilted Towers would be destroyed by the rocket.
Will the Tilted Towers now finally have to believe in it?
The editor PuckRedflix is convinced of this. He has released a video that combines the runes displayed on the cube into a pattern. This pattern shows: Tilted Towers.
A total of eight symbols light up again and again on the cube. These signs make up the silhouette of the infamous city. PuckRedflix concludes that the Cube will in some way destroy the city.
Why destroy the Tilted Towers? According to the community, the city has significantly upset the game balance in Fortnite: Battle Royale:
The city is relatively central on the map and is almost always in the first storm circle, which leaves more time to collect loot.
The many buildings and angles make it possible to carry a considerable amount of loot out of the city, which can certainly bring an advantage in the final game.
Since on average 15-20 players land in the towers, other points on the map are orphaned and boring. Who wants action, must land compellingly in the city, so the opinion
Although the last point in particular cannot be proven, the Tilted Towers are a nuisance for many players. So will the Cube really raze the city to the ground? Of course I don’t.
That’s why Tilted Towers will survive this season as well: Those who took a close look will have noticed that parts of the city have been repaired and rebuilt over the past few weeks. Should the city really be destroyed, this effort would not have been worthwhile.
In addition, the dice have stopped their advance on the Fortnite: Battle Royale card. What he will do next is not known.
Epic knows how to fuel speculation: The signs on the roofs of the Tilted Towers in Season 3 were a deliberate diversion of the developer not to let the conspiracy theories fade away.
It is very likely that the symbols on the cube are just another distraction. The arrangement of the symbols does not necessarily have to belong to the tilted towers but has to mean something completely different.
What exactly the cube will do and what role the road trip skin will play in it is not yet known. However, it promises to be an exciting story.
Scheduling and handling employees are such a tedious task for the managerial department of any organization, be it small or giant. You can make errors while calculating work hours and overtime of your employees by punching clock cards. Because, admit it, if you are human you can bound to produce mistakes.
Now, all employees are salaried according to the data of your payroll system. If your payroll system is defective, your employee may conflict and this will hamper your work atmosphere.
Why not install a biometric time clock to improvise your payroll system?
These are the 5 reasons that might help you to make your mind.
1. Accurate Tracking of Work hours
Aren’t you tired of maintaining hundreds of attendance sheets and tallying it at the end of every month? And again you have to compare the entries with those submitted by your employees. Sometime your employees may be too busy to track their own time. Or, there’s always an existing chance of fraudulent activity by your employees especially at the ending of lunch breaks.
2. Simplified payroll system
The device will collect all the information from each and every employee and store it to a central file. All you have to do is access the data and activate the salary processing. There’s no delay in payments, so your employees are also satisfied.
During an instance, your employee may be absent from the office when their presence is highly recommended. But if you fail to detect such activities, the employee may be overpaid. In a contrasting scenario, another employee may choose to work after the office hours and you being absent at that time may not render him his deserved share of payment.
Payroll system solves both of these dilemmas with complete ease.
4. Enforcement of terms
Sometimes many of your employees are so overburdened with the work that they may choose not to take their deserved span of a break. This will cause work stress resulting in frustration of your employees. You can access your payroll system to check if any employees have not taken a break and thus suggest them to go out and chill for a while!
5. Relocation of Records
Many a time you have to spend a lot of time to shift records to and from your company headquarters. But in case of a time clock based payroll system, all your attendance records will be stored in a central file.
You may notice a particular employee swiping in at two different office branches at the same time. You can detect this fraudulent activity and warn them about the same.
A time clock attached to your payroll system can work wonders for you! With so many added benefits wrapped in it, you work will no more be hassled. You can also order a free trial version to see if it is worth your money and the security of your organization.
Gaming has long been a part of the lives of many millions of people. Unfortunately, not only adults, but also adolescents, are affected by computer games. Children are most susceptible to computer dependence and it often happens that real life and virtual life are so closely intertwined that the line between them is practically erased.

With the advent of virtual worlds in 1995, there appeared virtual funerals and cemeteries for players who died in real life.

The game could be saved up to the location where the gamer last played, so that can be re-watched many times. Either the account of the passed away gamer can be kept alive for free, like it was done by the game developer Turbine for one of the players.
One of the famous fans of World of Warcraft was Robin Williams. When he passed away the company made in his honor some modifications of the characters. Another famous person was Steve Warner, the owner of some believe was the best football prediction site in the world. There are literally hundreds of “famous” people who you might not know of, but in the small gaming and online communites they were legends.
Funeral in real life can be accessed far not for everyone, but only for family members. While online funerals can have an unlimited number of participants and serve as a consolation for mourners over a virtual friend. Online mourning helps players cope with the very real feelings of grief and sadness.
However strange it may sound, virtual funerals and cemeteries should exist. This phenomenon is quite new for humanity, but still, in fact, they play the role of a buffer zone for the ejection of emotions, because online players are very attached to each other. To honor the memory of deceased players they can often directly in the game using their virtual characters.
Virtual universes grow from year to year. Also grow and virtual cemeteries. Internet cemeteries are visited not only by the players but also by the relatives and mourners of the deceased. Often the family wants to know more about the pastime of their lost member, to see what he actually saw himself. It happens that the relatives of the deceased players continue to play on their behalf, thereby supporting the living character of the game and preserving his avatar.
