Popular content creator FaZe Kay pranked his brother Jarvis by faking an email stating that he been unbanned from Fortnite, following his recent aimbot controversy.

FaZe Clan YouTuber Jarvis revealed that he had been banned from Fortnite after uploading a series of videos while using an aimbot in-game on November 3.

Although the aimbot was used outside of competitive matches on one of his alternate accounts, Epic Games confirmed that the ban would be permanent, sparking much debate among fans over the severity of the punishment.

Some of the game’s most popular stars such as Ninja even claimed that Jarvis’ ban was a too harsh for his first offense and expressed that there should be some option for the young creator to redeem himself.

Just over a month after his suspension, his older brother and fellow FaZe Clan star Kay decided to play a prank on the former Fortnite pro, brutally misleading Jarvis by claiming that his account had been unbanned.

Many fans have suggested that the prank itself was quite likely to be a planned skit from the popular FaZe Clan members, pointing out some moments in the video where the pair would apparently overreact for the camera.

The popular YouTuber started by sending a false email to his little brother, claiming it was from the Epic Games support team and stating that Jarvis’ ban from Fortnite had been lifted.

Topic starts at 6:46 for mobile users.

However, after Jarvis quickly realized that the statement had come from an unofficial email, Kay later decided to play a recording of one of his brother’s gameplays on his monitor, claiming that he gained access to the suspended account.

“That’s my name! Bro are you actually playing, how is this real?” Jarvis asked, shocked after seeing his older brother ‘playing’ on his banned Fortnite account.

After falling for the prank, the young FaZe Clan member raced out to tell their roommate and fellow content creator Teeqo that he had been unbanned, before returning to realize he been fooled by his brother, who’s controller was not even on, and that it was all just a prank.

Unfortunately for Jarvis, his permanent ban from Fortnite was not lifted by Epic Games despite him getting his hopes up and it appears unlikely that he will ever be able to enjoy the game on his main account again after the controversial punishment.

Dr Disrespect trolls mobile gamers and players take the bait

Dr Disrespect has taken a cheeky swipe at mobile gamers on Twitter, asking how anybody can even consider it to be a “serious” way to play – but players are fighting their corner. 

The Two-Time has had a whirlwind 2020 by all accounts. He’s moved platforms from Twitch to YouTube, and while some might have expected his influence on the gaming world to perhaps decrease in that move – he’s still one of the best at stirring the pot.

Of course, a lot of franchises that made their name on PC and console, like Call of Duty, PUBG, FIFA and Fortnite, have brought their games to iOS and Android.

Though, Doc doesn’t seem to be a fan.

Dr Disrespect takes aim at mobile gamers

Dr Disrespect has turned into a mainstream symbol of the streaming world, and sure knows how to get people talking.

On November 26, literally out of nowhere in vintage Doc style, he decided to joke about the idea of playing games on mobile.

He said: “I’ve got 3 state-of-the-art 1ms speed color calibrated monitors staring at me, a keyboard with titan switch optical keystrokes and a mouse that weighs literally nothing backed by a 200k multi pc setup….and you have the guts to tell me mobile gaming is a serious thing?”

As you might expect, he’s sparked a huge debate in the replies – with some arguing for and against his point of view.

One user, by the name of Yettobegin, said: “Well Dr.D not everyone can afford a good PC setup and that’s why mobile gaming is so popular in southern Asian countries.. Anyways I don’t hear any mobile gamers fighting for validation as a “Gamer”.. If u want to play in mobile and have fun who cares?!”

If you thought that was a strong response, wait until you see this.

Tribe Gaming’s Ferg challenged the self-professed best video gamer in the world to a 1v1 in CoD Mobile, with $100,000 on the line. As of writing, that has not been accepted, but it shows there’s certainly a lot of people out there wanting to prove him wrong.

This was not the only challenge, with Elijah Jackson offering a $10,000 wager of his own.

XSET Juicy, who plays PUBG Mobile competitively, also fired back – saying maybe gaming on mobile is too “difficult” for Doc to handle.

Nothing might come from this or Dr Disrespect actually might take up one of the offers, in a way to shoot down mobile gamers who stand in his way.

No matter what, though, he’s certainly achieved his objective of drumming up some debate. What happens next should be interesting.
