Fortnite pro Clix banned from Twitch

Misfits Fortnite Battle Royale pro Cody ‘Clix’ Conrod has been banned from Twitch playing with ‘Zayn’ on stream, echoing Khanada’s ban earlier this week.

Clix is one of the youngest Fortnite stars on the planet, with his stream pulling in thousands of viewers every day. However, he will be forced to take a break from Twitch for the time being, after being handed a ban from the platform.

Twitter: ClixHimselfClix is one of the best Fortnite players on the planet, but he will have to take a break from streaming for at least the next week.

Clix received a seven-day ban from the platform on November 11 after playing with Zayn, who is banned indefinitely from streaming on the platform. Twitch’s rules state that a streamer cannot play on stream with someone who is permanently banned from the platform.

Clix commented publicly on the ban, laying out his defense. “Nice, got a seven day ban for having Zayn in my stream,” he said. “I had him muted, changed his nickname. This is pathetic.”

It comes after former Team Liquid pro and team mate of Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney, ‘Khanada’, was banned for three days after playing with Zayn on November 8. This meant that Tfue and his team couldn’t stream their Fortnite Championship Series matches over the weekend.

This led Clix to question whether his week-long ban ruling was fair. “How does Khanada get a three day and I get a seven day,” he said.

While it’s harder to crack down on between small content creators, the ban of Zayn from Twitch was very public. The Fortnite wagerer was taken off the platform on October 29 after his third ban from the platform.

Clix’s channel was previously shut down by Twitch on August 17 after it was hacked. This didn’t count towards his ban counter for Twitch’s three-strikes rule, which bans any content creator after three offenses, regardless of severity.

MisfitsClix played with Sceptic at the Fortnite World Cup in 2019.

Unless Twitch has a change of heart, Clix will remain banned until November 18.

This means he won’t be able to stream his Solo Cash Cup matches for Week 3, and his squad will also be unable to stream their Fortnite Champion Series Week 3 games on November 17.


Did The Rock just tease he’s getting a Fortnite skin?

After an appearance by a very cartoony-looking float during the Macy’s Thanksgivings Day Parade, The Rock hinted that he may end up getting a skin in the popular battle royale game Fortnite, although he’s being a bit vague. 

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade floats are known their pop culture references. Between Pikachu, Goku, and others making appearances, it shouldn’t really come as a surprise that one based on the popular young Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson meme a few years back would make its way into the 2020 version of the parade.

Seemingly because it’s a float, the giant balloon itself seems to be a cartoon representation of the meme, rather than a hyper-realistic one. After one person seemed to point out that it looks a bit like a Fortnite skin, the former wrestler now actor responded in a way that’s raising a few eyebrows.

In response to the comment about his float looking like a Fortnite character, The Rock simply responded with “way ahead of you” and “great minds”. This obviously caused a few people to pause and ask themselves if he just hinted at a Fortnite skin.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any official comment from Epic but the comment is certainly suspicious. While one could make the argument that The Rock was saying that he also had the same thought before the original tweeter, the wink face emoji seen after the tweet is a bit peculiar. Surely he would know not to put that kind of statement out with that emoji unless he meant to hint at it, right?

It’s also a bit odd that he also responded to someone who tweeted that they “shouldn’t give them any ideas”, meaning he could have been totally knowledgable in what he’s doing.

His inclusion in the game also wouldn’t be surprising. Fortnite is known for its crossovers at this point, even allowing for some Icon Series skins based on celebrities like Ninja and others. It could also be a part of a larger WWE crossover, considering there’s a plethora of characters there to make skins out of.

Still, until nothing official is announced, take this with a massive grain of salt. Here’s hoping that if it is real that it will get announced soon, however.
