    who knows. You might be an end user.

    When my CPU started going mental while idle, when Win8 kept pushing its updates, when I could not get whats up with processes in task manager.... natural solution ended up being Linux.

    They're doing a poor job because I've only got their free games so far and have no interest in spending money on their store. Ever.

    There's a reason I don't use Facebook or any social media.

    Tencent/Chinese government influence makes me avoid anything it's associated with like the cancer it is. It's literally the reason why I refuse to ever buy from the Epic Turd Store no matter what, I just take the free crap they offer.

    I feel like if I said what you just said...I'd be in trouble here.

    It's a valid concern, although their true aim is censorship... through ownership of the studio's they can dictate the content those studios create.... ha.. dictate.

    The problem is only on the store tab.
    I have tested it.

    now all they need to do is remove the need to have multiple launchers and downloads for games bought from other developers via Epic (looking at you ubisoft!)

    Sony has a stake in Epic so I wouldn't worry too much about outside inference.

    funny. doubt you would still say the same if someone would make public your countries "secret" stuff.
    his actions were illegal, no matter the reason, and it didnt do anything to change.[/QUOTE]
    No and from experience countrie which need to keep most things as secrets are the most evil one.. in case of USA it was against its own laws.. I personally not believe in armies, secret stuff and all other so called important things.. They are all based on picture of image mostly imagined enemy and generate money to same army suppliers.. and i hope that they will in short time become obsolete as trench warfare or duty to become soldier if government will give a order. Progress is slow, but it getting better and better and in 50-150 years, we will finally in world without wars.. and we will see only wery small local conflicts and protests..and whole ten concept of state security and powerful goverments would be archaic thing from the past.

    Still not fixed. Client updated to 11.0.2-14967703 and issue occurs. I'm running a 3900XT on an ASUS Crosshair VII HERO X570. Temps go up 5-10C idle even when minimized to taskbar. Idle temp of 40 on desktop turns into 50 once open.

    Yep! I used a dummy account one time just for a game transfer on a mobile app I played. Deleted it never used it for anything else.

    Not a fan of social media. I never used it and have no plans. Never got into My Space either when it was big.

    This is the incorrect way to treat your own privacy.

    Did you all think that all those free epic games were for free?? No no, you exchange some portion of your amd CPU power in order to get the games for free :p


    JK, but this is seriously not good from the epic games' side. Always monitor your background resources!
