"Your fees, maximize income and guarantee It's going to last as long as you live. And, of course, have that entire plan in writing. They do these things for their clients every day in the office and each week here on the radio show, we talk about it. If you have any questions today, called Pound 2 50 from your cell phone and say the keyword money again. That's pound 2 50 say money. All right, let's see what Jim and Dan have in store for us today. Today, Jim, we're gonna be talking about the concept. What are you really going to use your money for? You know what is the real purpose? Of your money. And now that you're getting close to retirement or retired, you're going to have a lot of questions about your money. You know? How should you invest it? How are you going to get your income? What are the taxes? What's security? What do you do with that? Medicare trust beneficiaries and you also, then you're gonna say I'm going to watch my money go up and down. You know, like a circus act or roller coaster. And do you really want to do that? Because it's exciting. And I think really, it comes out and no, you don't want to. So I want to ask everyone right now question about their money, and I think it's one of the most important question. You can ask them. That is right now, as you're driving around or at home listening. Do you want to try to be rich? Or do you want to guarantee you'll never be poor? Think about what that's saying. You want to try. You want to strive? Is that your goal to be rich? Or you want to make sure that this point in your life you're never going to be poor? Well, I promise you, Dan. I would say 99.9% of the people listening right now, said the latter. They don't ever want to be poor, right? But how are they invested right now? They're trying to get rich, right? They're taking too much risk in your portfolio. And people think all the time that in order to take less risk, I'm going to get a significantly less return on my investment. That's not necessarily true. Yes. If you're 100% exposed just inequities and you have 100% risk. Sure you're going to get lesser return. But if you put together a structured portfolio based based on risk mitigation, you understand what financial instruments to use in that portfolio. What strategies you can use, You can actually get a very adequate rate of return based on historical data. And still reduce your risk, Typically by 75 to 80%, I think when you go back to this question, just that you're talking about. Do you want to try to be rich? Or do you want to guarantee you never gonna be poor? What if now it's 2000 again with the markets high, which the market was in a high point coming into January 2000, just like the markets at a high point Now what if now we go through the typical type of market cycles. That's happened since 1929, which is every five years on average. The stock market drops about 39%. So think about that every five years. You got to look forward to that. Well, what if you're in 2000 now and you're trying to be rich? And then we have the market decline of 2001 and two. Then we finally recover after 50% lost by 2000 and seven. Then we have another 50% decline in 78 2009. Then we finally recovered by about 2013. So how rich do you feel? Seriously. How rich do you feel? If you have the same amount of money 13 years down the road as you had when you started, you have the same amount of money in 2013 as you did in 2000. How rich do you feel? And how rich should you feel? Well, first of all, people don't really understand what you said. Because they're not. Come on. I was talking plain English. No, I mean it because they don't have the data, right? But we have the data If you had invested in the S and P 500 index, right, you go to any major brokerage company and you could have bought into that index in 2000 and you rode through the market swings and what you said Dan and 13. Years later, the index was exactly where it was 13 years prior to so In other words, You would have made no money. And if you paid fees, you would have lost money. But most of you don't understand that cause you don't have that data and number two. You were younger. You were going through a period of time when you're in your thirties or forties or maybe early fifties. And you had recovery time on your side. You were making contributions to your own retirement plan, and it did go up. But the predominant growth probably was from your own money being invested in the market. Dan in which you have to do is you have to say okay, I am now in my late fifties or sixties. Do I want to go through a period of time or the market goes down 2030 40 50%. When I'm drawing income off my assets, and the answer probably is no..

Jim Dan January 2000 75 50% 2001 Today today 100% 2000 13 years 2030 99.9% English 2009 1929 80% thirties one each week

"Is not Is not something to be sought any longer. Because if you're patriotic, and you're proud of America, and you waive the stars and stripes somehow some way, according to the media, you must be a right wing nut. Now. There's bread. An article earlier there's a couple of teachers. That are asking the school board to remove the flags in their classrooms. Because it has a negative connotation. Last year, a record low 63% of Americans reported being extremely or very proud to be Americans. You know the constituency, the group. There was most proud to be American. I bet you you can answer this. Yeah. People come here from other countries. You know, we got fat, happy, lazy, complacent, apathetic, taking everything for granted and bitch about everything under the sun because we're spoiled rotten. That's why it was so easy for the Socialists to make inroads to the point where they now set in the House of Representatives and the Oval Office. No, they're not tough to figure out. You know for Democrats, The answer's often been tied to who is president. Bottom line because they're all about power and money and control trends showed less pride in being an American. While George Bush and Donald Trump for president and more pride wouldn't Barack Obama and Joe Biden were in office. Think about that for a second Republican patriotism? Has stayed pretty high over the last 20 years. Um, one year after the 9 11 attacks 93% of Democrats, 99% of Republicans said they were either extremely or very proud to be Americans. Man. Wouldn't you like to have that mindset back? Yeah. Pretty pretty tough to run over somebody that stands up proud. Alright, the GOP number that pretty much stayed where it was in the nineties for the duration of Bush's presidency. But by January 2000 and seven There was one popular war in Iraq that sparked uh, a lot of liberal descent the share of Democrats who were extremely or very proud to be American. Shrunk to just above 70%. So You know, I started thinking about this, and I thought, you know you've got everybody trying to stab everybody else in the back, right? Um The last time. The last time Americans and I'm not. I'm talking about all of us that are Americans. Even if you're a leftist, you're an American. There should be the last time we were united on anything. In on anything. Was 20 years ago. 9 11. We came together as a country like never before. Um, there was a poll in July showed that 69% of Americans are very proud to be American. That's That's up from only 63% last year, and you have to ask yourself why. No surprise. Patriotism splits along party lines. Um Democrats have to find fault with everything and then convince you that everything is about to blow up, and if you elect them, they'll take care of it and take care of you. That's their platform always has been always probably will be. Um, But if you think about that There are a lot of Democrats and independents who don't know their bottom line. They don't think America is a good country and again, That's no surprise. All you have to do is watch CNN or MSNBC or read The New York Times. Liberals take very, very seriously. Every opportunity to trash. This country is racist, sexist warmongers. Um you name it every name in the book in 2013. CNN had an article last quite patriotism had become a dirty word. And they said, Oh, I'm disturbed by seeing dozens of American flags. There was a time when liberals were patriotic. They were still wrong politically, but they were patriotic. Remember JFK? That's not what your country can do for you Ask for what I asked what you can do for your country. Well, those times are long gone. The question is, why does the left eight their own country so much? And I think I have a couple of ideas and one of them is pure and simply political. We're going to find out is patriotism on the way out in this country. No longer will we come together as fellow Americans, but instead we build camps. The throw rocks at the other side is patriotism, evil. 1 800 to 88 w b a P 1 800 to 889227.

There's one picture that appears to be a side profile. His data. Birth is circa 1973 to 1980. Yeah, we don't have an exact date of birth. His hair is black. He's five ft seven, his build his medium. He's male. He speaks Arabic. Place of birth Afghanistan or Pakistan. I'm sorry, Pakistan. His eyes are brown or black. He weighs about £150. His complexion is light with wrinkles. No known scars or marks the reward. For the Justice Programme, United States Department of State offering up to a $10 million reward for information leading directly to the arrest. Of how Connick. And this is their new interior minister, So we kind of know What he is scheduled to do, Okay? And we just kind of like Watch and wait for him for him to show up at the office. Me come. I mean, this is laughable. Again, the U. S Department of State. Concerned with the composition. Of the new Afghan government made up of terrorists and, of course, the treatment of women. Very, very concerned. Hakani is let me go back to the FBI seeking information essentially wanted poster here. The remarks are that Haqqani is thought to stay in Pakistan. Specifically The Miram Shah north was zero Stan Pakistan area. Is reportedly a senior leader of the Haqqani network. No, it's called the Haqqani Network, and his name is Hakani. I would say this probably a connection there. I don't think it's coincidental. Maintains close ties with Taliban. Well, Obviously, I'm reading from the FBI posted here and Al Qaeda. Akani is specifically designated a global terrorist Now. Details are Taricani is wanted for questioning in connection with the January 2000 and eight attack on a hotel in Kabul. Killed six people, including an American, as I said his believed to have coordinated and participated. In cross border attacks against the United States. And coalition forces in Afghanistan. County also Allegedly was involved in the planning of the assassination attempt on the Afghan president at the time, Muhammad Karzai that was back in 2000 and eight He should be considered armed and dangerous. Yes, I'm guessing it's probably an AK 47 maybe an under folder model strong around his neck or shoulder. If you have any information, contact your local FBI office. Or the nearest American embassies, Embassy or consulate or the field office in Washington. D. C. Yeah, I'm only the up to $10 million reward, and this is the new interior minister. For Afghanistan, a freaking terrorist who is believed to be holding an American hostage. Right. So you don't know about this? Who is this American hostage? Well, the American hostage that Haqqani and his network is believed to be holding is Mark Frerichs. And he's believed to be the last US hostage in Afghanistan. I've got a statement by the family. They've spoken to media as soon as we had the pull out and we had the date guaranteed by Joe Biden at all. We're going to be out of Afghanistan by the 31st. I have the statement. From the family. It's an open letter to Haqqani. And they're trying to get their their loved ones who is Mark Frerichs. Well, a contractor. Who was apparently in Afghanistan to work on A building project. He was taken last year. He was taken in 2020. I've got the exact date. It was about a minute Got the date here. It was January of 2020. Yeah. Mark was seized in Kabul on January 31st of 2020. So he's been In the Haqqani network's hands for over a year and a half at this point And he's still there and the families appealing to Biden. The family's appealing to Haqqani himself. To release their loved one this mark. Frerichs. Here's the statement an open letter to Ha County to Sarah Juden, Hakani. From the family now is such. And so this is to the new interior minister, the acting interior minister of Afghanistan from the family of the kidnapped individual, Mr Frerichs. Now is such an important time for you and your people. Indeed, the future of Afghanistan is at stake. The people of Afghanistan have seen decades of fighting entire generations have grown up knowing what it feels like to have foreign forces in your country. With the war ending, there are big decisions to be made about the future. In the past two weeks, the Taliban is taking control of Afghanistan and foreign forces have started to end their presence in the part This changes the role of the Taliban from a fighting force to a governing entity. Your government will now need to think about ensuring the people in Afghanistan have food, water, electricity. You will need to think about diplomatic recognition, economic opportunities and support from Outside the.

"2010 contends it was the Americans who didn't know what they were doing. And this is purely my own view. Please. This is not the government view at all, or anything is my own view. I think there was a lot of interagency friction. In understanding what the region was all about. If I were not too harsh, I'd say that it was 21. Year Wars, 21 Year wars. Yeah. And so everybody who came in new, you know, came in with this new perception of what was happening on ground and you know, they brought a new strategies. New country insurgency doctrines and Applied them here to an environment that was quite different to elsewhere and it didn't work. And you know, as happens in all bureaucracies, and then Little bit of covering up the facts to facilitate Your own point of view. And so on. So, Yeah, I think there was a little bit of his minister. The U. S military changed everybody from enlisted soldiers to commanders every year, two years or three years. Maybe. And there was no consistency in your mind of of purpose until you don't living in the region and you haven't involve yourself in the people and tribes and the geography of the region and the culture. You don't really get a feel for it. Academically was Pakistan, not pro Taliban. Pakistan was supporting return to stability. And you saw the Taliban as the group that could bring that well or the group that needed to be brought into the government because they were no, no, we we have not been. We have not brought anybody. I think this is a misperception. Pakistan does not have the capability to bring a government in Afghanistan. Nobody can reckon government in Afghanistan, U. S officials found Pakistan far too close to the Taliban wants a Taliban al. I called the Haqqani network led a 20 hour assault on the US Embassy in Kabul. Top U. S military officer afterwards, said the Haqqanis were a veritable arm of the ISI. Akani leaders appeared here in Islamabad. But General Pataudi notes that the United States itself eventually dealt with them. A lot of people tend to when it suits them. Separate the Taliban and the Haqqani is they're not separate there. One and that is what a lot of people like to miss out because, you know, we're making friends with the Taliban were not making friends with the Haqqanis. No, you're making friends with the Haqqanis admitted. You signed a deal with the Haqqanis. Are you suggesting that after disagreeing with you, year after year after year, the United States finally came around to your point of view. I don't think that is our point of view to the Taliban's point of view, looking at it from a negotiation point of view. I think Taliban have played it brilliantly. Was it simply that Trump Administration was impatient for a deal and the Taliban were more patient and then President Biden came in, and he stuck with the deal because he wanted out of Afghanistan. I think you've put it really well. The Taliban even pretty consistent in their demand. They haven't budged. Did it serve us interests just to get out? I think, eventually it it would serve US interests to leave, but not leaving Afghanistan in the way that it has left it. It's unfair to Afghanistan. And it's unfair to all of us in the region because we we backed the US on this and so for us, it's been a bit of a letdown that you have not left the stable country. After 20 years of occupation, and now people are struggling to leave. The economy is in shambles. There's no law and order. I mean, how is this country going to function? You haven't promised it any drowns AIDS for the future If this is going to be the end state Then you might never have come back after let's say January 2000 and two just gone and left.

"Collins. Thanks for the update, really appreciate it. Glad to be with you, Steve Dr Francis Collins, director of the National Institutes of Health. President Biden is meeting virtually this morning with G seven leaders on Afghanistan. The withdrawal has raised some big questions about how Biden views America's role in the world as NPR. White House correspondent asthma, Hadid reports. In January 2000 and two when the U. S Embassy in Kabul reopened, Ambassador Ryan Crocker says the first member of Congress to visit him was then Senator Joe Biden. One of his really great qualities I thought was Is driving need to see things for himself. Cracker says. Biden did the same in Iraq, and I just I really respected that. So what have they done with the real Joe Biden? And who is this guy up there? Now? Cracker had thought the president was an old school internationalist in the vein of presidents going back to World War two who believed in American leadership on the global stage. But with the chaos in Afghanistan, he can't seem to make sense of him. For me. There are kind of sets of issues here. One of them is what his, uh, international philosophy actually is the the other is quite frankly, an issue of competence. And I find both alarming. Much of Biden's foreign policy is rooted in his years of first hand experience, and that's why the withdrawal from Afghanistan has raised so many questions. Leon Panetta was director of the CIA under President Obama. He has publicly refer to this as a bay of pigs moment for Biden the issue that concerns me. Is that when the president does want to make a decision that you want to be able to implement that decision in the right way, which means that You have to look at all of the contingencies. You have to look at all the possibilities that could develop and in this case, it's not clear to him. The president did. Panetta has sat in the situation room with Biden. He's seen him deal with crises. He's someone who feels that he's had a great deal of experience in dealing with the world. I think he does have, uh, Deep sense of confidence in his views, and one question is how much Biden trusts his own instincts over everyone else's. But the president's worldview isn't just about policy. It's also about style. He said that all foreign policy can be boiled down to personal relationships. Richard Fontaine was a foreign policy adviser to GOP Senator John McCain. When the president spoke about Afghanistan. He mentioned that Ashraf Ghani, the now former president had assured him certain things would happen. They obviously did not US presidents often. I believe put too much stock in their ability to sway a foreign leader solely to force of personality and and things like that, because countries have these things called national interests, Fontaine says. That's not entirely unique to Biden. The bigger thing he's noticed is that the president who once supported intervention on humanitarian grounds in the Balkans in Iraq. And even to some degree in Afghanistan has changed his tune. Nowadays, Biden speaks about the most important global struggle as a battle between autocracies and democracies in Afghanistan is not part of that equation. He's focused on China. His team often refers to this idea of creating a foreign policy for the middle class. A response to President Trump but also progressives within his own party. Matt does is a foreign policy adviser to Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders. I think there's a recognition that so much of the way that foreign policy was Talked about and made in Washington had become completely detached from the kind of lived experiences of Americans. And so Biden, like Trump made a commitment to end the Forever wars. It meant pulling back in some places, even as Biden promised to re engage with the world. And that sends a risky message to some. If you withdraw from the world stage because we're gonna fix the home problem and ignore the rest of the world is going to be a very, very dangerous place. General Jim Jones served as Obama's national security adviser for the last half of the 20th century. We figured out how to do it both ways. But Biden seems to be making the calculation that in the 21st century, Americans want to see nation building at home, not overseas. Asma Khalid.

No cost for this are here to help. Just don't know if they can help till they hear situation 84483 to 74 69. Alright, we're talking about traveling and the planning that goes into that trip before you actually go then once you get there, maybe you do this and you do that some excursions and activities. And all of that Once we've done all the pre planning, though we have that's a little tension and stress off our shoulders feel pretty good. So then we get on the plane. Well, according to an article from National Geographic Turbulence is almost guaranteed on your flight. And it's a matter of anxiety for a lot of fires. Do you do you get nervous about turbulence? Yes, really. H your stomach's gonna come back down. I know Plane drops. It's going to come back down, all right? It's just uncomfortable. Okay. All right. So here's let me give you can I give you a quick turbulence story? Yeah. Alright, night. We're gonna go back 41 years. All right. So now I'm 21. No, I'm 20 actually hadn't turned 21 yet. So, um 1977 600 afterwards to the doctors, right? That's pretty good. First baseman Garvey still there. I mean, it's loaded organization. They win the World Series during the time I was there. 1980 the year before, and 79 led the team in RBIs, which is good for first baseman just didn't hit a lot of home runs, which is sad 1980 hitting over 400 in spring training. Have a new minor league instructor says Hey, you're you're the best defensive first baseman. We've got an organization. Keep doing what you're doing three days later on released, Okay, Thank you. Thank you. So now I'm in Vero Beach, Florida for spring training with the Dodgers, so that you have to fly you home. Well, the last 20 minutes is a what a 40 minute 40 Mile flight. Right. So 20 minutes. Thunderstorms like crazy. I'm in the eight past your plane right behind the co pilot. Runs off of the runway because you can't see because it's raining so hard has to gun it to get it back on the runway. Then we take off and I'm like this is just going to be the end of my life, let alone my dream, So we're flying down into and it's cool because I'm sitting right behind the copilot's. I'm seeing the runway. So I'm watching the last 500 ft down, and he's 45 degrees to the right. He's 45 degrees to the left. We're bouncing up and down and all over and I'm like this is it. It's all over and I really had a piece though. I was okay. My life's over anyway. What difference does it make and five Ft before he hit the runway, nailed it perfect. It was fantastic. So I think that was the most turbulence I've ever been in, and I don't worry about it on planes. But the problem is there is turbulence and retirement right? And some people get a little bit more anxious than others. What are some of the areas of turbulence that when your team sits down with people that maybe They're not aware of that could happen in their retirement that they do need to plan for. You know, it's interesting Mark. Is that really we've kind of gotten lucky if you will with the market unless, say, 10 years. I mean, the biggest Are the fastest swing that any of the markets had seen was more around the coronavirus. So like that, you know, March time period and depending on how aggressively you were invested, you know, let's say it took On average 3 to 5 months to recover. But when I started this business in January, 2000 and eight I walked into the crisis that, you know. Fortunately, we've not seen again. But that was two years in the market. At one point was down 50% that So people would joke that people following case went 2 to 1 keys, and you know there's three things that we know the market's going to go up. The market's going to go down. The market's going to go sideways, but you can't time it. It's about time in the market. And if you need that money for income Then your your plan to change Because now you're locking in losses. So one we We work with people. You know, we may never experience that big of a shift. In our economy and our marketplace. But what if we do right? I remember it with one of our the Softwares that we have that we can kind of run some. What if scenarios one of the wettest scenarios with the pandemic? And I literally had to Google what would it be? And it's like biblical times like Locusts. An, You know, plague, But look what we've gone through this last year. Who would have thought it right? So we have to be resilient to get through to the other side because ultimately we will. It's just not promised to be easy. And so when we work with people We can't just let everything drop and close up shop simply because now we've experienced something that's hard. You don't You can't live like that. You if you have saved enough to retire when we need to plan on you using that money. Despite any market conditions right and and have confidence in that, despite the turbulence So now if I was on that plane that you were just describing and literally I'm so empathetic that like I'm going through that in my stomach already getting motion sickness like I can't have. Oh, I I am very sensitive to motion. And that so going back to our Bahamas trip that we had to get a boat to travel across many islands, swim at the pigs, pigs. I, of course. Got sick because I get sick. I mean, it's just guaranteed like the only way I don't get sick as if I'm driving. If you're in control, there you go. Yeah. There you go. And I have passed along that motion sickness Gene to my Children. Oh, good. And so I'm not alone. Whatever, like which makes husband Michael very excited when he's driving. Yes, I'm please. Yes. Oh, I have so many stories. So many stories like But here's the deal. There's there's going to be turbulence. What are going to do about it? You have to have a plan because what if you get sick? What if your spouse gets sick? What if you live to both be 100 didn't plan on that. What if one passes earlier than the other? I mean, there's just a lot of scenario. So you need to kind of plan for it was so when something happens. It's not just a total shock, right? 84483 to 74 69 to sit down with the team at Texas Financial Advisory kind of going through some of these scenarios. And what do you need to be aware of what might happen? What could happen 84483 to 74 69? So if you think about turbulence, usually when you're in the plane turbulence comes from. If you fly around the mountains, right, there's shifting over that jet streams. Which I don't know how they know they're there, but I guess they do, uh, storms? Certainly. So you think about storms? If you're in a plane and the pilots they know the storm is there if they can They will go around the storm might add some time to your flight, but they're going to go around the storm. I think in all these turbulent areas in and you know, in retirement that you're talking about So market volatility for one. You have a plan. You kind of navigate around. What if this happens? How do we handle that? I mean, right, it's there's there's opportunities to kind of navigate through this world. Yeah, and again, That's that's the beauty of options, right? And whatever we work with people and give them that second opinion and a lot of times, they're just little tweaks that they could do to increase their odds. Now there are some people that Somewhat need an overhaul. But the majority of people following that gray area of just needing a couple tweaks. Um some guidance and coaching. To get them to and through retirement. And you know, that could be people even in their forties, right? It doesn't mean that this is just something that you look at as you approach calling it quit. You know, when you think about your trip to the Bahamas, So my guess is you probably did the planning yourself. Yes. Um, No. I used a travel agent used to travel agent and a lot of people go well, I'm paying for that. Travel agents expertise, so I don't really want to. I'm gonna save my money. But that's really what you're doing as well. The Texas financial advisor helping people the retirement. You're kind of like the travel agent. So if you would go to the Bahamas things don't go right. You just call the travel agent say, fix this, But if you did it yourself now you've got all the headaches right? And that's kind of what you're doing for retirees as Texas financial advisories walking people through all these scenarios, and when bumps happen, or turbulence happens, you're here to help right?.

"App. Let's get back to tech stuff. Mhm. So why did it take so long for Fortnite to launch? If that documentary back in 2014 showed gameplay that looks almost identical to what the game is today? What was taking so long? Well, part of it was that epic was developing the game as a service. The original plan was to release fortnight as a free to play game and then include content that players could only access if they paid for it. So you would have In game purchases. You would be able to play the game for free. But if you want some of the bells, whistles, you would have to cough up dough in order to get it. Also epic began work on another title around that same time called Paragon. And the two games were competing for in company talent and time and resources. So when the game did release an early access it required would be gamers to pay for that privilege, by the way. Paragon would end up being released first and then epic would focus on Fortnite and then eventually epic would shut down Paragon. It was a a project that did not Did not meet the success that the company had hoped for. So the early access version of Fortnite was called Save the world. This was pretty much what the original concept had been years earlier. Players would gather resources and use those resources to build forts and then defend those forts against zombies. The company said it intended to offer save the world up as a free to play games sometime in 2018. This was in 2017 Skip ahead. Now it's early 2019 as I record this, and it still has not happened, the basic version of Fortnite that player versus environment save the World version. Is $39.99 for the standard version. The deluxe edition, which contains more character models and weapons, plus some other stuff is $59.99. So one of the things epic games has done is create a lot of different character models, a lot of different weapons, a lot of different emotes these various elements that Allow you to customize your character to some extent to a great extent, but it's almost like baseball cards. They have to collect them in order to be able to use them. A different version of Fortnite did launch as free to play and it's this version that really captured the attention of a lot of gamers. This is the famous Battle Royale Mode, which epic released in September. 2017 just a few months after save the world entered early access. Now, if you're not familiar with battle royal or battle Royal. If you prefer style games, I'll summarize. The name comes from a Japanese film called Battle Royal, in which a class of students is transported to an island and then they are forced to fight to a last man standing competition. The administrator for the competition, designates certain areas on that island as being safe zones safe zones, just meaning that you wouldn't automatically be killed if you were there. And other areas on the island. Go to becoming off limits. And if you are there when it goes off limits there automatically killed off Now, if this sounds a lot like another story called Hunger Games. Well, it's no big surprise Hunger games that those books came out after battle. Royal had had come out and they both cover very similar territory. 1 2017. Brendan Greene, a video game player and mud maker who uses the handle player unknown, oversaw a new game called Player Unknowns. Battle Grounds, sometimes known as pub G. This game was based off of some mods that green had created for other games. And these mods all made a battle. Royals started game mode for for these various games, it created it. The games didn't natively supported So Brendan Green built mods that allowed it to happen, and typically, the way it works is that you have a map and you have a group of players who are all competing against each other either solo or in teams. And they're all in different parts of the map, and a section of that map, typically designated by a circle is the safe zone. Being outside the safe zone means you start taking damage a certain amount of damage per unit of time. And the goal is to be the last player alive at the end of the match. The game became enormously popular very quickly. Despite the performance issues and bugs, people famously talked about how they would have the most. Incredible beast of a video game rig and still struggle to run pub G at its highest settings. Now, Epic must have been paying really close attention to how popular pub G was becoming, because this was right around the same time that they were releasing to save the world. Version of Fortnite. And so they launched their own battle royal mode in September 2017 and it closely resembled pub G's approach. It's incredibly similar. In fact, it was similar enough that it prompted Chang Han Kim, who is the games developer and a businessman who had become the CEO of the pub G Corporation to criticize epic games and to threaten legal action. And in January, 2000 and 18 Pub G filed a lawsuit against Epic games. And then dropped it six months later, and they didn't really comment on why they dropped the case. Now. One reason Kim might have been worried about Fortnite is that pub G relies upon the unreal engine for its games engine. So pub G developers sometimes have to work with epic support to implement new features for the pub G game. So the worry was that epic might find out about pub. Jeez, plans for upcoming features and then epic could rush to implement similar features into Fortnite and released them before Pub G could do it, undercutting the competition. It didn't take very long for fortnite to catch up to pop G and then to pass it in popularity. The fact that it was a free to play game gave it a big boost because pub G is not free to play. If you want to play pub G. You have to go and purchase the game just like you would for a normal video game or any other most other video games. Fortnite, however, is different. You can download the fortnite battle royal game for free and start playing right away. But if you want certain in game items, certain weapons scans characters emotes if you want to get very specific dance. Then you have to pay extra. You have to do that those in game purchases and lots of people were doing that. Not only that, but Fortnite became one of the most popular games to watch someone else play primarily through the streaming service twitch players with handles like to Fu. T F U E and Ninja rack up millions of viewer hours on the streaming service as they play games and.
