Clix responds to his creator code suspension by Fortnite

Recently NRG pro player Clix received a suspension from Fortnite’s Support-A-Creator program. With this suspension, fans can no longer use his creator code in the game’s item shop. This seems to be the start of a crackdown by Epic Games and Fortnite to maintain their image.

Following the suspension, Clix tweeted about it and responded to his punishment set by Fortnite. He stated that he will be much more mature on his stream and handle himself better on various social platforms. He also mentioned that he loved interacting and having fun with his fans. But he also said that he can’t make mistakes like these which would lead to major suspensions.

In his statement, Clix also talked about setting an example for the Fortnite community. A large part of the game’s player base involves teenagers and kids. So it is important that pros like Clix showcase better behavior towards their opponents, and other people to remove the toxicity from the popular Battle Royale title.

However, Clix also mentioned that he wouldn’t let this situation change his playful personality. Many fans know about his brash, and competitive attitude, and while he won’t tweak anything about that, he did promise to stop crossing the line to make sure that it doesn’t affect any of his contracts with Epic or other companies.

By penalizing an enormous star like Clix, Fortnite has let everyone know about their plans to improve the community. The developers have a long road to traverse in removing toxicity completely, but with this move, it seems like they are on the right path.
