Popular Fortnite were stunned to find out that Jarvis had been permanently banned from the battle royale title for using an aimbot cheat on a second account. His YouTube video on the topic immediately went viral, and has sparked responses from personalities like Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins.

However, while Ninja stated the ban was heavy handed on the content creator, xQc took a different line – mocking Epic Games’ double standards when it comes to striking down the ban hammer on players.

Twitch/xQcxQc has never been afraid to air his opinions live on his Twitch channel.

“Why does he think that the company would unban him? He cheated and ruined the games of a bunch of players that are potential customers for them or whatever, like I don’t know, this is kind of fu**ed up,” xQc said after watching Jarvis’ video during his November 4 stream.

After a few moments of silence, the streamer followed up on his original point, aiming his crosshairs at Epic’s earlier decision to unban cheaters ahead of the Fortnite World Cup. He continued: “If they unban him, it sends the message that you can cheat and get away with it. Oh wait, wait, they already did that! With the other pro that cheated and was able to compete again and qualify and go to LAN!

“Holy s**t, I forgot. No, you’re actually allowed to cheat. Holy s**t dude, that’s fu**ing nuts dude. That is actually insane.”

The Canadian isn’t the first person to bring up the example of XXiF being given a two-week ban ahead of the Fortnite World Cup, as it was something FaZe Tenser tweeted about immediately after Jarvis’ video.

While he remains currently banned from Fortnite, many of his fellow professional players and fans have started the #FreeJarvis campaign on Twitter in the hopes of getting the ban overturned. Whether or not it’ll have an impact though, remains to be seen.


Epic Games tease more “exclusive” content coming for Fortnite Crew members

According to a brand-new leaked survey, Epic Games have been asking players what they might want to see added as a feature to the Fortnite Crew subscription service, hinting that they’re open to changing up what’s included in the future.

If you took a look at the Fortnite Crew subscription service and thought that it didn’t include enough or didn’t include much that you’d be interested in, Epic Games may be heeding those concerns.

According to Fortnite leaker ‘iFireMonkey,’ a brand-new survey sent out to Fortnite players might indicate that the developer might be open to changing up what a Fortnite Crew subscription comes with. Specifically, the survey asks players to rank what benefits would be most or least important to be added to the service.

Currently, the Fortnite Crew service includes an exclusive skin, some V-Bucks and a free battle pass.

The question itself features a wide range of choices. Some are simply new ways to purchase Fortnite Crew subscriptions, like the ability to buy the service in retail stores and multi-month options.

There are also more gameplay-centric choices, including everything from custom matchmaking options to cosmetics that show off how long you’ve had a subscription. Beyond that, there’s even a choice for a monthly physical mailer with additional rewards outside of what’s given digitally.

Despite this development, it remains to be seen if the company will actually implement any changes. While this survey might indicate that the company is, at the very least, open to adding features to the service, it’s important to remember that it’s not a guarantee that they will.

Currently, the service includes a free battle pass, an exclusive Crew pack, 1000 V-Bucks and an exclusive Member’s Only emote (at least for a limited time), so the implementation of any one of the features listed in the leaked survey would be a welcome addition, especially after its rocky start.

For any updates regarding new features in the Fortnite Crew service and Fortnite in general, keep it locked to Dexerto.
