Epic Games locks your account… for buying too much

Huge sale on Epic Games currently - it's only natural that people go crazy and buy whatever they can (and don't play most of it later on haha).

And now we wait…

The letter to the European Commission has been sent! We have almost reached 1,000 signatures on the petition (it’s around 900 right now).

But if you want you can send the same letter just copy paste it from the petition page or change it slightly (we don’t want to make it spam right?) and…
