Demonstrating that the title has enduring popularity can be used as grounds for Apple to elevate the value of a damages claim for Epic breaking the tos.
The problem Epic has: beyond a small fervent set of players: no one cares about their position. The longer the case draws out the more it harms themselves. Gamers get bored and move on to the next big thing.
They’ve made a miscalculation if they think trying to make apple look like a bully has a tangible effect on Apple’s business. They’ve built an echo chamber that’s only close to their ears.
The odds are about 100-1 you are not a lawyer, legal expert or any other kind of authority who knows what they are talking about. An ability to be somewhat articulate does not mean you really know squat about the topic you have chosen to opine about. It's a good thing for Epic that they did not come to you for legal advice and strategic planning.
Apple may lose or Epic may lose, but let me assure you, they are both is a lot smarter than you are. You should also know Epic's popularity has nothing to do with the claims they have made against Apple or their attempt to weasel out of a contract. It's a lawsuit and not a popularity contest.
The wait is not for no good reason. The company is in a hot mess right now, leaderless and drifting out to sea. Tim Cook has to go yesterday. His lack of vision and holding people accountable for timelines has finally caught up to him. The company just isn't as good as it was a few years ago, and as it should be.
I realize that iPhones the bulk of the profits, but there will be no profits in the future if they don't get innovation AND execution right soon.
