Twitch streamer Cody “Clix” said on Twitter on April 24, 2023, that he has received a 14-day Fortnite ban for participating in the $100 Cash Cup.

The content creator was suspended according to an in-game message because they appeared to be working together with a rival. Cody described the event in a six-minute video that was posted on the social media site. He stated that he spoke with Epic Games, who said the ban will continue to be in effect. Clix said in the opening moments of the Twitter video that he has been suspended from Fortnite for two weeks. He went on to explain what this means for his future as a professional gamer: “I’m banned for two weeks. If you guys didn’t know, this means that I can’t play in FNCS (Fortnite Champion Series) Grand Finals and I can’t also play in the next FNCS, in a month. So, that means I can’t go to the LAN event and obviously, and I can’t play for the next four months, for FNCS.”

Then the 18-year-old mentioned speaking with Epic Games, the company that created the game: “I had a call with Epic. As of right now, it’s going to be like that. As of right now, it’s going to stay like that. I pray to god, something changes. Since this is my life. I moved here for this.”

The highlight video from the game that led to Clix’s expulsion from the battle royale was shown. He displayed the gameplay of “User-6caf00f27,” another banned player. The content creator alleged that the other person stalked and stream-sniped him: “So, this individual, User-blah, blah, blah, he also got banned. He got banned for the same time, which is two weeks. So, let’s just start real quick. So, for the whole game, chat… and for the whole stream, chat, the whole game event, he beat me the whole time. He’s following me since the start. He’s been following me. Shooting me. He’d done over 350 damage to me. The whole, entire game.”

Cody identified the user whose Twitter bio had the term “N1 (number one) Clix Hater.” On Twitter, the Fortnite expert also displayed the latter’s direct chats and added: “This is him. He’s 15 and his bio, ‘Number one Clix hater.’ And he also messaged me and said, ‘My bad, bro. Don’t want anything bad to happen, I did it as a joke, lol.’ So, this guy, in his bio, is, ‘Number 1 Clix hater.’ He purposely did this, to get me banned. He purposely did all this. Literally, in his bio, chat! It literally says, like, ‘Number 1 Clix hater.’ Like, I’m not even trolling! He literally tweeted, like, all this stuff. Like, I’m not even trolling! But, that’s some proof real quick.” 

The American internet celebrity kept playing the game. After the video’s six minutes, he apologized: “I really do apologize… and I do wish that consequences gets lowered to… hopefully a little bit shorter than this.”
