    "Apple lied. Apple spent a year telling the world, the court, and the press they'd 'welcome Epic's return to the App Store if they agree to play by the same rules as everyone else,'" Sweeney wrote. "Epic agreed, and now Apple has reneged in another abuse of its monopoly power over a billion users."
    Dang, what a manipulative toxic personality this Sweeny guy has! I would've voted to terminate their license indefinitely.

    I guess biting the hand that feeds you isn’t such a good idea after all.

    I’m LMAO. So Apple won’t let them back in because EPIC is appealing. The delay is all EPIC’s fault. OMG they shot themselves in the foot, and decided to reload. 
    Sweeney must have spent too much time in his own metaverse and lost his sense of how the real world works. They broke their contract, publicly trashed Apple, forced multiple Apple executives into excessive amounts of unnecessary court proceedings:

    https://appleinsider.com/articles/21/02/01/tim-cook-ordered-to-sit-7-hour-deposition-in-epic-games-case

    lost their case, stated their intent to appeal and then expect to get welcomed back so they can try using external payment links to deprive Apple of commission revenue again and have gone straight back to trashing them publicly when they've been turned down.

    It's so sad when accomplished people turn into maniacs like this. Epic makes good and popular products and they are just burning so many bridges unnecessarily because of some misguided greed and pettiness, which they don't direct at anyone else but Apple. They aren't directing the same vitriol at Sony, Microsoft or Nintendo and the control they have over their gaming platforms all because Epic feels like they deserve a commission and Apple doesn't.

    It's gamers and content creators that lose on this in the end, the execs walk away from this as billionaires no matter the eventual outcome. It's the gamers that pay Apple's commission and the ones that made Sweeney a billionaire. He's exploiting children with IAPs and making out like he's their hero by taking away their games while most of them have been stuck at home so he can make more money from them.

    Bet Sweeney wasn't expecting this when he originally plan this whole fiasco.

    Wonder how the board will take it :smiley: 

    ROTFLMAO.

    Why do these appeal options even exist for cases that don't have any new evidence/data? A ruling was made, abide by it and move on.
    Watch the Netflix series Making a Murder and you will flabbergasted at how how f***up the US legal system is.

    What’s really funny is Epic filed the first appeal. And no court would disagree with Apple that they can wait until the case is decided and closed. It’s not a legal question at all. Epic just continues to screw it up. Greed…

    Hopefully Apple will have developed something better than Unreal Engine by then. Icing on the cake. 
    Keep dreaming

    From the time the planes hit the towers, the lesson this century seems intent on teaching us is that people with a wide range of anti-social personality disorders can be surprisingly high functioning.

    If thing are as reported, I'd say it is a half measure from Apple.

    Apple could play nice and accept Epic again in the App Store, assuming they don't repeat any shenanigans—and stop bitching in social media. Or Apple could nuke their ass by banning all Epic developer accounts (e.g. Unreal Engine) which is allowed to do now, if I've read the verdict correctly.

    This "so so" approach only gives air to Epic's fiery comments about being mistreated, at the same time that it don't do enough to really hurt them.

    Tencent owns 40% of epic. But I think they have their own games like Pubg Mobil.

    Not really. Epic decided to appeal, which means they don’t agree with the judge, which means that they haven’t agreed on anything since filing the lawsuit. Next they tried to manipulate what Apple said during the trial BEFORE the verdict. They want to go back on when they still don’t think what they did was wrong and what Apple did was all wrong. Then Tim Epic badmouths Apple because they won’t give him his way. He wants his cake and eat it too.

    I wouldn't judge the legal system off that documentary. Sure there were some missteps but that documentary was pretty one sided. They left out a bunch of key evidence in the case.

    I’m not feeling  a whole lot of sympathy for Epic here. They intentionally broke the rules, gambled and lost. Now they don’t like what they got. Kinda sucks, doesn’t it?

    This and as a couple of others have stated. If Epic didn't appeal then Apple would have let Epic back. Apple won't let them back until both sides agree on the verdict; this now means once the appeal is granted, rejected or dropped. At this point it is clear that Tim Sweeney has some sort of personality disorder and doesn't care about legal arguments.

    I think Cook is channeling Jobs when Jobs said he was going to go thermonuclear on Android. Hey Sweeney, kiss Tim’s ass on bended knee if you want back in the App Store. Go ahead, pucker up, you can do it.

    Anyone see Chinese communist owned Tim Sweenie crying on Twitter about Apple not letting him back in the store? How delusional is this Moron? He is choosing to continue to sue apple and he wants back in the App Store? I mean, what the F?

    I won’t disagree and perhaps I should have been more specific about how the 3 member appellate court ruled one way and then the same appellate court but with all members ruled the exact opposite way.
