Following the “911 Incident,” xQc has been banned from the GTA V NoPixel roleplay server for 24 hours. Let’s take a look and understand the 911 incident and why it led to xQc’s ban.
In the GTA V NoPixel server, players can call 911 for assistance from the city’s emergency services. The city’s 911 system, police dispatch, and automated incident alerts are essential to provide roleplay opportunities for the police, EMS, etc.
xQc Abuses NoPixel’s 911 System
Therefore, anyone abusing the 911 system messes with the roleplay and the functioning of the entire server. And that is exactly what xQc did in a fit of rage.
Following a failed vault heist, the police arrested xQc’s character, Jean Paul. They also seized all illegal items in his possession, including an Advanced VPN Device. However, xQc, who at this point was awake for more than 20 hours, couldn’t accept the police’s actions.
According to xQc, the Advanced VPN Device was not marked for seizure. Therefore, to him, the police seizing the device made no sense. This tilted the streamer known for “malding” easily and throwing temper tantrums.
To get his device back, and as an intentional form of harassing the police department, xQc spammed the 911 system for several hours with over 500 messages.
The 911 Incident
Every 911 call made in-game sends a loud ping to streamers who roleplay as police officers, EMS, etc. Due to xQc abusing the 911 system, multiple streamers had to quit roleplaying that day due to not wanting to deal with xQc’s harassment.
Additionally, the excessive spam overloaded the dispatch system and caused the game to crash for many streamers.
For many streamers, playing on the GTA V NoPixel roleplay server is their main content source. Not everyone is as lucky as xQc to play any game of their choice and have thousands of viewers watch them.
Therefore, due to his childish behavior and actions, xQc forced others on the NoPixel server to either deal with his abuse or forcefully ditch streaming for the day.
xQc Banned For 24 Hours
Due to xQc abusing the 911 system in-game for several hours, he received a 24-hour ban from the NoPixel roleplay server. Additionally, the NoPixel developers quickly patched the game to avoid such an incident from occurring again.
xQc also apologized for his actions that made others’ games crash. However, he showed no remorse for forcing people to quit playing and ending their streams.
Many believe that his actions deserve a longer punishment, especially when other streamers receive longer duration bans for far less.
In one specific incident, server owner Koil stated that he wanted to make an “example” out of Kyliebitkin. She received an awfully long ban for a minor infraction. Meanwhile, xQc gets away with a 24-hour ban after harassing the entire server.
It’s clear that on NoPixel clout provides leniency. We’ll have to wait and watch to see how many times xQc’s clout lets him get away with harassing NoPixel roleplayers and their communities. For now, xQc will be back as soon as his ban ends to complete the Casino Heist.
