Why Was FaZe Jarvis Banned From Fortnite YouTuber Explains His Future In Bizarre Video

FaZe Jarvis has uploaded a bizarre video to YouTube in which he explains his future after being permanently banned from Fortnite for cheating.

Popular FaZe Clan member, Jarvis, has explained his future to his followers in a strange video uploaded onto YouTube. Ninja has been very vocal in defending the internet celebrity's use of an aimbot by controversially saying "content creators should never be banned", and Jarvis' own teammates have also pleaded with Epic Games to reduce his permanent ban from Fortnite to a ten week suspension.

Yes, there's been a ton of coverage concerning the issue with the 'Fortnite superstar' having been banned from the Battle Royale title for life, but now we have an update on what's exactly next for Jarvis.

The YouTuber or cheat - depending on your perspective - has uploaded a very dramatic video with rap music to say he's taking a break and moving back to the United Kingdom to be with his family.

"I want to let you all know that you're going to make mistakes in your life, but the most important thing is how you learn from those mistakes and become a better person," says Jarvis in a video titled The Future of FaZe Jarvis.

"Taking a break isn't going to be easy, but I know it's the right thing. I'm heading home for a bit to be with my family and reflect on what's most important to me in life and what's next."

People have reacted divisively to Jarvis' video. Some have claimed it made them cry, whereas others have said it's an over-the-top documentary which explains nothing about his future despite what the title suggests.

Why was FaZe Jarvis banned from Fortnite?

FaZe Jarvis is permanently banned from Fortnite for cheating via using an aimbot program during solo and playground matches.

All of this was done on an alternate account with none of the shenanigans taking place in competitive bouts according to Jarvis himself.

In an "I'm sorry" video too many YouTubers publish nowadays only after they've been caught with their hand in the cookie jar, the FaZe player explained why he has been banned.

“I’m not sure how many of you know this, but I’ve actually been banned on Fortnite for life,” said Jarvis.

“Recently, I’ve posted some videos of me using aimbot in solos and playground mode. All I was thinking about while making those videos is how entertaining and, like interesting, these videos would be for you guys to watch. It didn’t even cross my mind I could be banned for life from Fortnite for it.”

Regardless what you think about the explanation and apology that has probably only come about from being caught, it's arguably a harsh and over-the-top punishment from Epic Games when Damion XXiF was only banned for a mere two weeks as a result of farming kills.

#Freejarvis

Thanks to Jarvis being an established and well liked player with 1.96 million subscribers on YouTube, there has been a lot of support for him in hopes of getting his permanent ban receded.

This has resulted in a colossal amount of #FreeJarvis tweets on the social media platform, although not everyone is in agreement with the proposal of having Epic Games lift their permaban.

In regard to whether the permanent ban is justified or not, there's no denying that Jarvis has violated Epic Games' terms of service as he's even admitted the crime himself.

With that being said, the permanent ban is hard to swallow when more mischievous cheaters have only been given light smacks around the head in comparison.
