One of the most famous fighting royale game is also known for the huge number of scandals associated with it. Fraud, litigation, and a bunch of other unpleasant things happened during its existence. Today, let’s peek at the three worst scandals ever in the game’s history. Let’s go!
Lifetime Ban of a popular blogger Jarvis
Let’s start with the ban of the famous blogger Faze Jarvis at the Fortnite royal battle. He used a cheating program during the game in front of millions of his subscribers. Thus, he enraged Epic Games, and this led to the blocking of his account. Aimbots allow you to make focus on enemies, thereby making the game much easier. In addition to getting a ban, Jarvis was also banned from using any Fortnite videos. Of course, Jarvis probably knew that he would get a ban, but he probably did not expect a scandal of this scale. Later, he repented, but this did not change the situation. He even recorded a video with tearful apologies to his fans.
Legal disputes between Faze Clan and Tfue Tenny
On May 20, Hollywood Reporter announced that Turner Tfue Tenney sued Faze Clan. Streamer sued the club and said that Faze was taking the bulk of his income. The organization replied that the maximum percentage they can receive from prize money and revenue from player’s content is 20%. Soon, all social networks were filled with publications with hashtag #releasethecontract. Tfue himself also asked the club to release a contract. In June 2019, both parties sued each other, and the dispute is still ongoing.
Two cheaters played in the final of the Fortnite World Cup
At the Fortnite World Cup, fans were extremely disappointed by Damon “XXiF” C and Ronald “Ronaldo” participation in the tournament.
XXiF and Ronaldo cheated on qualifying to the World Cup – some other players helped cheaters, allowing the duo to kill them intentionally. Epic Games took away the slot from Damon and banned everyone involved for two weeks. A month later, XXiF was selected for the World Cup.
This caused a huge wave of indignation. The audience buzzed when the duo was on the screen and cheered at every death of the players. Popular streamers also condemned this incident. Benjamin dr Ludo said it was a blow to the game’s reputation.
Unfortunately, cheating in games is quite common. And with the boom of games and streaming communities, this has generally become a constant phenomenon. Now Fortnite developers should take care of the game’s security game for each participant.
