Well there you have it - clearly cheating does require focus after all. And if Jarvis Kaye, a.k.a. Faze Jarvis, had focused on playing Fortnite as it is instead of prancing around with an aimbot, he'd still be playing Epic's game.

Just so we're clear - we're not gloating here, far from it. In fact, it seems to us as if Epic's been a bit too strict in this case, especially when players who cheated in qualifiers for paid events only got two weeks on the sidelines. I mean, is it two weeks or lifetime bans?

Faze Jarvis was streaming it all online, repeatedly confirming that he's playing Fortnite Solos and Playground with an aimbot. He thought he's safe as he wasn't playing his main Fortnite account, but you can imagine how well that worked out for him. 

 All I was thinking about while I was making those videos was just how entertaining and interesting these videos would be for you guys to watch. It didn’t even cross my mind that I could be banned for life on Fortnite", he said.

Unfortunately, Fortnite's policy on cheating is a zero-tolerance one, and Epic reiterated that to Polygon. In other words, things don't look great for Faze Jarvis.

He said he hopes others learn from his example and we cannot stress how this may be important for anyone who's got their sights set for esports. Stupid things invariably leave equally clever labels across your career, and this is the one you do not want to have in your world. 

We guess it's up to Epic now, because they'll have to decide whether Faze Jarvis' Fortnite ban is too much, or Ronaldo and XXiF's was too little.
