Fortnite pro Clix faces Twitch perma ban

One of the most popular pro players in Fortnite esports, Cody ‘Clix’ Conrod, has revealed he has been indefinitely suspended from Twitch just hours after ending his biggest ever stream on his channel.

The NRG player absolutely stomped the first NA East qualifier for Fortnite Champion Series Chapter 2 Season 5 yesterday. Playing in a star-studded trio alongside two of the best Fortnite players, Kyle ‘Bugha’ Giersdorf and Timothy ‘Bizzle’ Miller, Clix’s team took the top spot in the qualifier by an enormous points margin of 71. The trio picked up three victory royales along the way and racked up 41 eliminations.

As a result of the trio’s dominant display, it attracted a lot of attention. Clix’s stream of the action saw over 100,000 viewers tune in, which is the biggest peak audience he has ever recorded on his Twitch channel, according to Twitch Tracker. However, what was a great day in all departments quickly came crashing down, with Clix tweeting out that he had received a “perma ban… on everything I love”.

He follows this up with a screenshot showing that the length of his suspension is “indefinite” but that he can appeal the decision. He will hope that his appeal is successful, as his channel has amassed over 3.5 million followers, making him one of the biggest streamers for Fortnite content.

This is not the first time Clix has received a Twitch suspension, which is likely why it is an indefinite ban on this occasion.

While he does not confirm the reason for this latest suspension, it appears that Clix was banned after accidentally showing a compromising photo of fellow NRG Fortnite player ‘Ronaldo’ during a stream.
