FaZe Clan streamer Jarvis "Jarvis" Kaye posted a tweet yesterday announcing his return to Fortnite, leading fans to wonder if this was a joke or if he was actually unbanned from the playing the game. Jarvis was originally banned one year ago because he posted a video in which he used in-game hacks. Epic Games takes hacking Fortnite extremely seriously, and banned him for life as a result.

This stunt may not have put him back in the good graces of the developers.

The Ban Hammer

Midway through a match on stream, Jarvis was logged out of the account on which he was playing. Jarvis blurred out the account name, but apparently that wasn't enough to prevent Epic Games from finding him. Clearly, Epic Games has zero intentions of unbanning Jarvis from Fortnite, even with his repeated attempts on social media to get the developers to remove his ban.
