FaZE Jarvis (real name: Jarvis Kaye; born: November 12, 2001 [age 19]), also known as Lil Jarvis, is a British-American Fortnite streamer, Let's Player and FaZE Clan member-turned-reactor, challenge YouTuber and TikToker who gained notoriety when Epic Games publicly banned him from the game permanently after they caught him openly using aim-bots and cheating software in-game on November 3, 2019.
Why He Sucks
- To make things simple, he blatantly used aimbots and cheating software in one of his Fortnite streams. This caused Epic Games to permanently ban him.
- After Epic Games permanently banned him from playing Fortnite, Jarvis made a supposed "apology" video that was nothing but weak attempts at damage control, creating very obvious crocodile tears in an attempt to gain sympathy points and painting himself as an innocent victim. That backfired horribly as even his most loyal fans started questioning his sincerity shortly after and anti-fans began mocking him for his fake crying face.
- It's worth noting that Jarvis monetized the video via paid ads while claiming to choose not to be paid for his "apology" video. This shows that he is a blatant liar too.
- He is the worst FaZE clansman in terms of clickbait usage, as almost all of his thumbnails prior to his ban contains his horrible smiling face, lots of arrows and exclamation marks and stock photos.
- This got even worse after he got permanently kicked out of the FaZe Clan as his newer videos' thumbnails feature him and his girlfriend way too frequently.
- He also created fake prank and challenge videos just for views.
- Almost all of his videos prior to his ban are nothing but Fortnite.
- All of his videos are at least 10 minutes long so that he can get ad revenue for them.
- Shortly after his ban, it was revealed that Jarvis was secretly living in an £11.6 million (US$14,893,327.53) mansion with his teammates in Hollywood after a video of the clan's mansion resurfaced and went viral. While it is not known what happened behind-the-scenes, it is plausible that Jarvis got fired from the clan and evicted out of both the mansion and Los Angeles as he revealed in his follow-up video that he is moving back to his mother and two brother's £1.3 million (US$1,669,052.99) home in his hometown London, United Kingdom.
- He co-runs a reaction channel with his older brother and former fellow clanmate FaZe Kay, which is just as bad as his main channel.
- Apparently, he has a disgusting fetish for pregnant people.
- His older brother and former fellow clanmate FaZe Kay is just as bad as him.
- He and Kay are both obvious part of the FaZe Clan just for money as they couldn't be bothered to improve their gaming skills or play recommended new e-sports-worthy games like Hyper Scape.
- He is a very good example of why you should never cheat in competitive online multiplayer games.
- The controversy surrounding Jarvis's ban from Fortnite played a role in exposing the corruption of the FaZe Clan and e-sports teams in general, as they're openly willing to swindle their winning prize money into buying expensive items like mansions.
- The crying image of Jarvis and "It's so hard" quote became an Internet meme among the gaming community and even Jarvis himself, in which his crying face from the apology video came from, used it as his active profile picture.
- He can take criticism as he actually finds his crying face and the memes surrounding it funny. He even uses his crying face as his current profile picture to poke fun at himself.
