Epic Games decided to permanently ban Jarvis Kaye

Posted on September 14, 2020 by

Epic Games decided to permanently ban Jarvis Kaye, also known as FaZe Jarvis, from Fortnite for life. The particularly harsh punishment came about after Jarvis showcased himself utilizing an aimbot in YouTube videos. And while using such cheats is against the game’s Terms of Service, many have said that Epic’s punishment was a little extreme, especially since Jarvis didn’t use the aimbot on his main account and it wasn’t in a professional competitive setting.

The situation was thrust back into the spotlight recently when Epic Games referenced Iron Man’s AI assistant J.A.R.V.I.S. in a tweet to promote its ongoing Fortnite/Marvel Comics promotion. This tweet caused “Jarvis” to trend on Twitter, but the conversation was largely about FaZe Jarvis and how Epic should “free” him from his permanent ban. Perhaps in response to this newfound attention, FaZe Jarvis decided to make a return to Fortnite streaming on Twitch.

Unfortunately for FaZe Jarvis, his new Fortnite v bucks generator stream didn’t last all that long. Shortly after starting the stream, he was kicked out of the game, with a message on the screen stating that his login expired or was signed in elsewhere. Jarvis seemed shocked by the situation, though some online have accused the video of being staged. Whether or not it was legitimate remains to be seen, but FaZe Jarvis said during the stream that he was banned again.

FaZe Jarvis’ Fortnite ban isn’t the only controversial player ban that has been given out by Epic Games. Earlier this year, Fortnite banned 9 year old Zenon from playing the game for a staggering four years. Zenon was banned for playing Fortnite’s Arena mode, which potentially lets players qualify for cash-prize tournaments. The minimum age requirement to do that is 13, which is why Epic banned him from the game.
