Faze Jarvis announces Epic Games have permanently banned him from Fortnite.

Epic Games take cheating very seriously and have sued a Fortnite cheater in the past. In September, Epic settled a lawsuit against a minor that Epic accused of cheating and it looks like a popular Fortnite content creator has suffered the consequences of cheating.

Jarvis Kaye, also know as Faze Jarvis, is a full-time streamer for Faze clan. He boasts almost 2 million subscribers on YouTube and 575,000 followers on Twitch. In a video posted today, November 3rd, Faze Jarvis announced that he’s been permanently banned from Fortnite.

In the video, Faze Jarvis states he’s been banned from Fortnite for life for posting videos on his YouTube channel of him using an aimbot in both solos and playground mode. He mentions he never used an aimbot in competitive game modes and only posted the videos to entertain his viewers.

An emotional Jarvis mentions he can never play Fortnite again and urges his viewers to review the Epic Games terms of service for Fortnite. According to Jarvis, this permanent ban means he can no longer attend any Fortnite events in the future.

Jarvis ends the video by apologising to everyone watching the video and thanks everyone for the support they’ve shown him for the last two years.

Update: Jarvis has recently put out a tweet regarding the Fortnite ban

This punishment does seem quite harsh in comparison to the two Fortnite pro players, Xxif and Ronaldo, were found cheating in the World Cup qualifiers for team feeding kills, but only received a two weeks competitive ban and the duo qualified and took part in the World Cup Duos final.

With such a high profile content creator being banned, and with Jarvin making a public apology, it’ll be interesting to see if Epic decide to reduce his punishment.

They are not remotely comparable situations. With the guy who supposedly cheated in the World Cup, there was no definitive proof he cheated and no admission of guilt, Epic was completely fair in their handling of the situation. Jarvis was proven beyond doubt to be cheating and admitted it, he deserves to be banned.

We all know that Jarvis messed up big time and was trying to give us good content but I think epic should temporarily ban him, what else is he gonna do with his life and he is very good, no more Fortnite for him I feel bad. This could be his only warning and if he does it again, then he’s gonna have to be permanently banned.

F that no, he was well aware that aimbot leads to permaban, all the time he had to thought about it, before getting the aimbot, making the video but he still uploaded it. He deserves that permaban.

It is not fair to other players that are tryng to play as it was intended and that is with practice. Grinding and perfecting yourself and than comes a noob cheater with an aimbot and makes you go crazy.

Ok. Maybee the punishment was to harsh but he definitely deserved to be banned if nothing else to learn a lesson. Month or two or a whole season would be more appropriate.

The fact that he tried to justify his behavior by saying he never used his aimbot in competitive game modes shows he knows it was wrong. It’s not like an aimbot just appeared on his system. He had to search for one, and it’s not as if he found it on a reputable site. The fact that he was genius enough to post his actions ON THE INTERNET (omfg) shows that he is either an impulsive child who doesn’t think about the consequences of his actions, or he is above the rules the rest of us must live by.

Keep him banned. If he gets unbanned then all past accounts and players better get unbanned or accounts back that where taken away for a stupid glitch in the game.

If the fans of Jarvis just that desperate to get him forgiven, then what I say is if you(EpicGames) forgive him and lift the lifetime ban then go ahead. But you will have to ban him from competitions and making videos on Social media for this. Sure her mom said he was broken and this game was his life then I say let him choose between lifetime ban of playing Fortnite and encouraging others to use cheats and making money. In my opinion he was more interested in letting others believe he was a super pro player by using aimbots… Read more »
