Twitch star Dr Disrespect explained his feelings about FaZe Clan’s Jarvis Kaye following his permanent ban from Fortnite for using an aimbot.

Jarvis was handed out a permanent ban from Fortnite by Epic Games over his use of an aimbot in the Creative mode of the game “for content.”

While he didn’t use it in a competitive setting, Epic still has a no-tolerance policy for hacks and cheats of this nature so he was banned for good. This is largely because the hacks he used changed the game code, and he even gave a tutorial on how to get these hacks yourself.

Many suspected that given his ties to FaZe Clan, the banning wouldn’t last for very long, but Epic stood their ground and said he would remain permanently banned.

A few big names have chimed in with their thoughts on the ban including Ninja, xQc, FaZe Banks, and now we can include Dr Disrespect.

When asked by a member of his chat what he thought about Jarvis’ permaban, he didn’t pull any punches when discussing the FaZe Clan creator.

“Here’s the thing, I do have an opinion on this, ok,” he started. “I kinda looked into it a little bit. At first, you read it like “Jarvis used hacks” and all of a sudden it’s like “sh*t, get him out of here, get him out,” he said. 

However, Doc changed his tune on that and said he looked into it a little deeper.

“Now here’s the thing, I don’t know if the hacks were used in a live environment or not,” he said. “He’s basically using it not for competition, not to go out and bump up his K/D or grinding Champion’s League, or a tournament, or any of that stuff. He’s using it for content for his YouTube channel to show something.”

Dr Disrespect, YouTubeDr Disrespect thinks Jarvis’ ban was too harsh.

With this knowledge, Doc believes the ban was a bit harsh, especially when considered to XXif and Ronaldo who were caught cheating during the World Cup qualifiers and were only give a two-week ban.

“He got permanently banned for it,” he said. “In comparison to these guys that used cheats and hacks during a qualification of a $30 million tournament and they only got two weeks banned. That’s, I feel like Blueballs (Bluehole) and Epic Games are part of the same equation of just clueless. I don’t get it. If anything, Jarvis should just get a temporary ban.

He ends his explanation by saying “bring back Jarvis.”

It certainly doesn’t sound like he’ll ever be unbanned, but he will be able to take solace in the fact that he does have his supporters out there.

While Fortnite was his main game, Jarvis said his career is far from over and he’s just getting started.

New Twitch streamer NickCKelly got emotional on stream when he got his first viewers after waiting for nearly an hour, gaining thousands as followers as a result of his wholesome reaction.

2020 was a booming year for Twitch, with top creators like xQc and Valkyrae achieving huge numbers in terms of followers and views, and several gaming trends surging in popularity at various points in the year, meaning success all around.

With these huge creators out here smashing records, it’s easy to forget that many are only just starting out their venture into streaming, both casually and seriously.

This year has no doubt prompted more people than ever before to give streaming a try, but it’s not as easy as it might seem from the outside – especially if you’re starting from zero.

2020 helped Twitch do massive numbers all round.

NickCKelly was one such individual who wanted to give streaming a go, and he couldn’t have been more grateful when he eventually got his first viewers after a while on stream by himself.

He had been streaming for almost an hour when he noticed that some viewers had joined his previously empty chat, and he looked stunned.

“I have my first viewer, hi!” Nick said, looking taken aback by the sudden appearance. “Wow, this is amazing. I’m genuinely honored to have you in my stream, you’re my first viewer that I’ve had, I’ve been streaming for 48 minutes.”

“I feel like I’m gonna cry, man,” he said with the most wholesome reaction possible, tearing up as he spoke to his new viewers.

Over on Reddit, user Avoxio who found Nick’s stream explained why they entered his empty stream. “Me and some friends were scrolling through twitch and found this guy. His stream title got us intrigued so we decided to stop by.”

They also said “at first we thought he was trolling so we messed around a bit not thinking anything of it, throughout our conversation we realized that he was being genuine,” and said they decided to share his stream in hopes of getting him recognition.

Nick also responded in the comments: “I will not let you all down. I want to prove to people that there is goodness in the world, and that we are capable of so much more than most think. I think there’s so much pain and suffering in the world right now. Helping even a single person is making a difference in the world.”

The unexpected reaction from the small streamer certainly seemed to strike a chord with some viewers, and Nick has now shot up to 4.7 thousand followers at the time of writing.
