That "fallout" being registering and downloading another launcher, which is not a painful, injurious, damaging or hostile action. Again, this is not consistent with the definition. Epic hurting your feelings/ego has nothing to do with a threat. Many gamers are choosing not to use the EGS and instead wait a year until it's released on Steam, which is a perfectly valid response. Nobody is forcing you to download the Epic launcher or buy these games, nor is anyone threatening you to make you comply. A person holding a gun to your head and demanding your wallet is a threat. A person/company saying you need to download a piece of software to play a game is not a threat (this is basically just another requirement). You need to understand the difference between the two.
