My views are slight skewed... this is Apple and these are Apple’s taxes. So Epic asking for tax relief... or tiered tax relief, so the wealthy can get wealthier? IDK, just applying some unreal logic

Epic wants to have their own store on IOS and Google so that they can charge developers and not pay Apple nor Google anything. That’s what this is all about.

Or just lower that 30% to 10% fee

Would you rather pay $60 or more for games on ios? Look at the audience reach made possible by Apple. And Apple makes account management and billing easy, returns, advertising, development tools etc. they also ensure security for end users. Is that unfair? I don’t think so.

Apple isn’t doing anything other companies are doing on a regular basis and if you’re a shareholder, you are happy with Apples business plan. Of course these companies want more money but if they weren’t on the iOS platform at all they would be missing out on all that extra revenue because of the massive amount of users. Showing 30% appreciation for account management and so many other benefits on iOS is worth all that extra revenue. If they think they are so great on their own they should try to market their products only on PlayStation or Xbox and see how their profits change. Im sure they’d be back on iOS in no time.

Good for Apple, I’m sick of these free to play, but pay to win type of games.

Yes, They (apple) are very non discriminatory until money or until you attack their gains, then ...

Apple is playing fair here. What epic demands isn’t necessarily wrong but for a company which makes tons of money and the 20% discount through direct payment is still a huge amount for regular gamers like myself since a basic skin would cost 7.99$ which in inr is a whole lot of money for just a skin. With that money i can rather get myself a new game. So I would argue epic to first reduce their pricing schemes before attacking a bigger company like apple as apple has never failed to satisfy customer needs proving their services worth every penny spent.

Set well stated.
