A Fortnite pro player called Paper, who has been competing with his team Elite Esports in the FNCS competition has gotten his entire team disqualified, and himself banned on Twitch. Paper had a Twitch partner status, but following an incident involving hate messages against another team over a contested landing spot, has received an indefinite ban from the streaming platform. Here's how Paper got his team disqualified.

Elite Esports disqualified from FNCS

Elite Esports received a notification from Epic Games recently, revealing that they have been disqualified from the FNCS competition following an internal investigation.

This was due to a member of their team, Paper, breaking the rule of being respectful to other players. Elite Neeqo revealed Elite Esports' disqualification email from Epic Games on Twitter.

Elite Neeqo followed up by staying "This isn't a troll either I just received the email 5 minutes ago" and finished off the Twitter thread by saying "f$%k you" and tagging in Paper.

The team was disqualified due to Paper's hateful comments towards another team due to the team contesting the same landing spot as Paper.

The hateful messages from Paper over a landing spot argument are not safe for work, or anywhere really. This was all due to a Fortnite landing spot that another team dropped into, as Paper explained.
