I reckon... Without trying to be rude to anyone who plays fortnite heavily, that anyone who gets banned from an addictive game should pretty much be grateful for the forced disconnect, and anyone who is still addicted to the game should quietly let him be and get on with their self destructive gaming~
I developed this opinion when i exchanged a monthly subscription code for a mechanohog on my grand old wow account in WotLK and got permabanned~
This streamer is seeking validation. His comments reek of insecurity. "Hey, what we do is important! Really! I'm a professional!" Basically, he is trying to convince himself and is projecting that.
Reminds me of how superhero/Star Wars fans need validation for liking products made for kids by telling you how "dark" and "adult" their themes are or whatever. Just admit you're a dork and own it, man. Otherwise you're gonna sound like a babyback bitch.
I agree with others who have said that the exact opposite should be the case: Streamers should be held to a higher standard than Joe Average game player. They're making money on someone else's IP and their behavior ends up emulated or celebrated. Cheating alone is worthy of a suspension or ban (depending on game and offense) but streaming in front of an audience knowing that the audience will use that as a tacit approval of using cheats themselves? Fuck that. The lifetime ban is more than justified.
One of the best and most consistent traits that a creator has that connects them with the entirety of their audience is the intrinsic feeling of a shared beginning or at the very least a shared idea that a passion can elevate someone. That feeling of connection and hopefully a reminder that anyone can do well is important and randomly throwing up ideas and rules of being special completely negates it.
I mean I believe in capitalism, competition, markets etc. and hate socialist democrats BUT when they yell that we should repossess all the money held by the wealthy I ain’t gonna shed any tears if that happened to StReAmErS and InFlUeNCeRs.
Also, the gamer quoted here is an insufferable elitist, which speaks to have quickly pro gaming has become a huge deal in the last few years.. only people who are pioneering new financial territories have sufficient lack of moral waypoints to run themselves down a narcissistic rabbit hole like this guy.. this guy is a yuppie... He's the Patrick Bateman of gamers.
Jarvis Kaye - known as FaZe Jarvis - has had to issue a grovelling apology to his two million fans on YouTube
Banned Brit Fortnite player FaZe Jarvis ‘made £20,000 from YouTube apology video’
Jarvis Kaye - known as FaZe Jarvis - has had to issue a grovelling apology to his two million fans on YouTube.
A British teenager made £20,000 from his apology video in which he grovels to fans after his Fortnite ban for cheating.
But in a tearful apology video, the teenager claims he was unaware his use of "aimbots" was forbidden.
He has a point about the punishment being far more harmful to a streamer, but that's really something that should have been worded differently, if at all. Nobody ever wants to hear someone make the argument, "the rules should apply to everyone else, but not us."
this cheating idiot is crying due to lost revenue.
most of these "content creators" are shit hole and when they get "exposed" they disappear for a year. I think that is the normal protocol.
Remember that fat marshmallow Irani guy (apparently who had stats on majority of Black people committing crimes) who looks white and was suppose to voice a character in Yooka Lalee ... he is also back after his break and is making making videos and making $$$
Remove fortnite and Ninja's career peak in life would be fast food or general retail store employee.
Not really the type of person you take any advice from.
Streamers ruin gaming. And have ruined it in a big way. There are some really good streamers that would be successful in many careers, but a majority of them were just basement dwellers living with mom with no money trying to make some money doing nothing and playing games. Works for some, and not for most.
Last person that should be giving advice is someone with blue hair who takes dumps on his stream and his audiance age level is 13 and under.
I think all streamers that use cheats online deserve insta-bans for life. I don't care it it's their "job". You make stupid decisions at a 9-5 job, you get fired, same rules should apply. It just shows the kids watching how much "fun" cheats are and promotes that garbage to a very impressionable audience.
