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.
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.
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.
