40 million pirate attempts to access UTIII servers says Rein

This TG Daily report reckons Epic’s received more than 40 million attempts to access Unreal Tournament servers using pirated keys, claiming the figure came from studio boss Mark Rein. That’s a world’s worth of piracy, right there. No idea how legit this is, but we’ll drop the man himself a mail and ask.

    no way are those all unique. saying “we’ve lost 2 billion” is a bit absurd.
    it could easily be a million people trying an average of 40 keys. maybe less people. depends how persistent they are.

    It does sound a bit ludicrous, you’re right.
