Top 'Fortnite' team FaZe Clan believes a 'fair compromise' can be reached with Epic Games to allow teen banned for life to play again
Screenshot YouTube/Jarvis, Epic GamesAfter 17-year-old Jarvis Khattri's emotional response to being issued a lifetime ban from "Fortnite" for using "aimbots," a software hack, FaZe Clan has issued a statement seeking a "fair compromise" with Epic Games. Khattri is a member of the hugely popular competitive esports team FaZe Clan, which he joined after his older brother Frazier Khattri (FaZe Kaye) began featuring him in YouTube videos. In a statement shared with Insider, FaZe Clan said it will "remain hopeful and stand ready to work with Epic Games in any way possible to come up with opportunity [sic] that allows Jarvis to play again at some point in his life." Previously, "Fortnite" maker Epic Games told Insider that cheat software like Khattri used in YouTube videos was subject to a "zero tolerance policy," but members of FaZe Clan like FaZe Banks have argued that Khattri's punishment was unfair compared to other disciplinary actions taken by Epic Games.
