xQc calls out Epic for double standards over FaZe Jarvis’ Fortnite ban

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.

Just days ahead of Fortnite’s Galactus live event on December 1, data-miners have leaked a highly anticipated Galactus skin without spoiling event details. 

Galactus, the “Devourer of Worlds,” has been approaching Fortnite’s island and his unavoidable arrival is finally nigh. In a one-time-only, live Season 4 “Nexus War” finale on December 1, Marvel’s world-eater and Epic Games’ player base will collide. 

While fans currently know that the gigantic, cosmic entity is making his way to the Island and that something will be happening on the aforementioned date at 4 p.m. ET, few details are available.

Fortunately for impatient aficionados of the battle royale, dataminers have leaked a Galactus skin that should be coming to the game’s shop with a bundle at some point.

The Galactus skin doesn’t seem massive, but it’s definitely spooky.

While it’s unclear exactly how similar this skin will be to the teased images of a gargantuan, shadowy Galactus shared by Epic themselves, the skin most certainly presents an imposing figure. 

Dressed in glistening jet black and red, the skin features regal, villainous armor bookended by chunky boots and a massive helmet. Eagle-eyed fans might even notice a particularly smug smile sitting across the infamous villain’s purple face.

It remains uncertain if this skin will be available for purchase and, if so, when it will be. But leakers like ‘ximton’ have discovered files indicating it could be part of a bundle. Still, in order to save fans from leaks, dataminers have remained largely quiet about specific event details.

Fortnite Galactus event – what we know so far

A variety of leaks have already surfaced, showing a gigantic Galactus and teasing the possibilities of a major battle between Marvel’s heroes and the cosmic world-eater. But Epic Games have tried to keep things on the low, only confirming that “the fate of all Reality lies in the balance.”

As mentioned earlier, the finale event begins on Tuesday, December 1 at 4 p.m. ET (1 p.m. PT, 9 p.m. GMT) and its exact duration is unknown. Epic have advised players to download the latest update (14.60) and Houseparty (which is integrated with Fortnite to allow for live video chat).
