Ninja breaks his silence on the Fortnite Pros cheating scandal

the Fortnite community is in an uproar again, all thanks to a group of professional gamers who were accused of cheating during the Fortnite Champions Series. As reported by blasting newsthe duo Slackes and Keys took first place in the Fortnite Champion Series, with the duo Kreo and Bucke in second place. However, videos soon surfaced of the two teams allegedly colluding with each other to outlast the other teams, ending all four players’ involvement in the FCS.

Epic quickly doled out punishment. Not only the players were eliminated from the Fortnite Champions Series leaderboards almost immediately after the cheating allegations came to light, but they all received 60-day bans from Fortnite. This is where things get even more controversial, as some believe the ban wasn’t harsh enough, especially considering the prize pool for the Fortnite Champions Series. Totaling $5 million this year, Slackes and Keys had already earned $4,500, with Kreo and Bucke earning $4,200.

Probably the biggest name to comment on this scandal is the one and only Ninja, who recently joined the FCS with his new partner, SypherPK. In the purest Ninja style, no beating around the bush when it came to discussing the subject. “This competitive scene is run exclusively by kids,” the streamer said. “And then Epic says, ‘Here’s a Fortnite tournament.'”

Ninja also expressed disappointment at the idea of ​​these skilled players cheating when it’s clearly not necessary. “I respect Mongraal and Benjyfishy and those guys, man. I don’t think they, I don’t think they do this. They’re too talented. They’re too talented. They don’t need to. Which is so weird, because these kids are too, and I’m disappointed, man.”

Faced with 60 bans imposed on Slackes, Keys, Kreo, and Bucke, Ninja moved on to the FaZe Jarvis controversy, a recent case of a pro. Fortnite player caught cheating. Jarvis posted a video using an aimbot and received a lifetime ban from the game. At the time, Ninja came to Jarvis’s defensefeeling that there must be some way for the young player to atone for his mistakes.

This may be why the wide difference in punishments bothered Ninja in particular. As he pointed out on a recent broadcast, “Jarvis cheats in a regular online game for no money and gets a full-time ban. Players get caught cheating in a cash tournament and get banned for 60 days.”

Naturally, a cheating scandal on this scale means that Fortnite The community has been pretty divided on this. Pro player Chap seemed to agree with Ninja that the punishment wasn’t harsh enough. tweeted“I still think you should be banned for life when you get caught cheating in any tournament for money.”

In the meantime, one of cap’s followers he suggested that everyone should try to look at it from the cheaters’ perspective, as an outright ban can be pretty depressing. Another user claimed that cheating when money is at stake is practically stealing.

Speaking of FaZe Jarvis, the weight on the subject as well, tweeting, “Cheating/teaming is not cool, they were lucky IMO lol.” When one of the highest profile cheaters in Fortnite is put in your case, maybe you have really made a mistake? Of course, FaZe Jarvis is also the guy who released a rap song and accompanying video about how cheating on her was no big deal. You’ll have to decide if her perspective is worth mentioning.

Ninja and Jarvis were not alone in their comments. Tfue also offered his two cents.saying, “All the people who, uh, said that, like, 60 days was too long? I agree with them…yeah [the cheaters] he only did it in one game.” He goes on to claim (while using choice language) that the accused players used a similar strategy in nine games. His choice of words may suggest that he feels the ban should be even longer.

Regardless of where you stand on the issue, many players seem to think that the penalties for cheating in Fortnite they’re not exactly the most consistent. No word on if this means stricter guidelines will be in place after this, but there are definitely people talking about it.
