Liquid Chap intentionally quits after Ninja kills Poach

During a game, Ninja was able to showcase the deadly capabilities of the new legendary Boom Bow item, eliminating Liquid Poach with ease thanks to the weapon’s explosive splash damage.

After seeing watching his teammate exit the game, Liquid Chap decided it wasn’t worth his time to continue playing due to having just 18 HP and intentionally quit the match.

Can you be banned for leaving a game in Fortnite?

This isn’t the first time Chap has left a game deliberately – exiting a match after taking significant damage from a player during the Luxe Cup which cost them a vital point.

As per the official rules for the World Cup, players are expected to “play to the best of her or his ability at all times during any match.” Intentionally disconnecting from a match without a legitimate reason for doing so is classified as ‘unfair play.’

TSM Zexrow was forced to apologize on Twitter after denying a player a kill point by quitting.

Many players have been heavily criticized in the past for doing the same thing as Chap, including Team SoloMid’s Zexrow and Rogue’s Morgausse.

Epic Games will be keen to crack down on the issue ahead of the World Cup with players yet to be severely punished for abusing a game mechanic that could cost rival players dearly.
