Damion “XXiF” C was previously banned after he qualified for solos in week three of the qualifiers after an investigation by Epic Games found sufficient evidence to support the claims of him teaming in multiple matches. ‘Teaming’ is when you team up with other players in solo mode to gain an unfair advantage over opponents. 

Now XXiF has qualified this past weekend in duos with his partner Ronald “Ronaldo” Mach, The pair sneaked into qualification territory with 91 points. Epic Games issued a 14 day ban on XXiF back in early May much to the communities despise, this decision angered many members of the community not seeing it as an actual punishment. 

With XXiF securing his spot at the Fortnite World Cup and a guaranteed $50,000 many professional players and content creators have shared their opinion on Twitter. 

People have searched his replays since his official qualification to see if there is any more suspicious clips like the previous ones. People have found a suspected clip of a player messing up his initial drop and landing on XXiF where said player’s teammate had already fallen to XXiF and try to pickaxe him. 

The Future of XXiF

With XXiF viewed as public enemy number one, it will be immensely challenging for him to gain back any of his fans, especially in New York. Other professional players will view him as the one player who should not be there and even some casters have already voiced their opinion on this matter. Benjamin "DrLupo" Lupo, one of the official Fortnite World Cup casters has been public on his stance on the duo, even calling XXiF a "bot" during the previous weeks solo during the official Fortnite broadcast. 

XXif will go into New York with full intentions to perform to his best abilities, but with over 10,000 people attending the Fortnite World Cup Finals, the pressure could get to him. XXiF has proven in the past why he and Ronaldo are one of the best pairings in the world, but one decision which could have cost them their career, has simply cost them the support of their fans. 

The other duos to qualify to New York City alongside XXiF and Ronaldo from NAE this week were: 

1. Tetchra & Eclispase

2. BlooTea & RoAtDW

  1. Do you think XXiF should be allowed to play at the Fortnite World Cup?

    1. Yes!
    2. No! He should be banned
