Random: Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air Actor Suing Epic For Adding Carlton Dance Move To Fortnite

The price of success.

The success of Fortnite has unsurprisingly placed it in the firing line on a number of occasions. It’s been accused of promoting violence and gambling to children and has been targeted for copyright infringement. The developer PUBG Corp – known for Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds – even tried to take legal action against the popular free-to-play multiplayer title.

It’s a neat idea, and Cygames is clearly having fun bringing back fan favourite legendary characters in entirely new forms – and with different class alignments. Take Demonlord Eachtar, the incredibly strong Shadowcraft legendary from Tempest of the Gods. He’s returned as Holylord Eachtar, a Havencraft legendary minion. He still has the same play point cost and stat line, and still gives allied followers +2/+0 and Rush. He even still uses shadows (i.e. allied followers that have died) but instead of summoning zombies, summons Holy Cavaliers.
