Don't believe everything you read on the internet.
I'll never understand people's rabid need to blindly defend everything. Epic is a for-profit company. People show their appreciation by purchasing their products, not kissing their ass on a forum.
So if you like a company, have been happy with their products, feel they do actually care about the community they have served so long and faithfully, and then decide to stick up for them in anyway that means you are a sycophant? Buddy you are waaaay off base ... what it means is you are supportive of a company that has always done right by you and brought you hours and hours of fun and enjoyment. Nothing more and nothing less.
