RatedEpicz GTA NoPixel Ban

If you’re not familiar with GTA RP, it’s important to note that the rules on the NoPixel server are incredibly strict. As this is role-playing, any streamer that is found to have come out of character is risking a ban.

This is exactly how RatedEpicz received his 3 day ban from the server.

Thanks to a post on Reddit, we’ve got a bit of context as to what went down that caused Rated to receive a ban from the server.

The reason for the ban revolves around a confrontation with a fellow streamer, AaronOnAir. The pair were both role-playing on the server, with Aaron RP’ing as a police officer and Rated as his criminal character Randy Bullet.

Trouble arose when Rated assaulted Aaron’s character and fled the scene, after Rated was apprehended and arrested, the pair came to an agreement and Rated was released. However, Aaron refused to return any illegal items that were taken from Rated upon his arrest.

This decision led to Rated going out of character and ranting to his Twitch chat, which ultimately led to his ban from the server for going out of character.

Rated has since issued 2 statements, the first claiming that he has spoken to Aaron and cleared the air. The second is that he accepts full responsibility for his actions and will be taking some time off. You can find both of these statements in the Tweets below.

RatedEpicz will be banned from playing on the NoPixel server for a total of 3 days, but it looks like he will be taking some extra time and streaming a variety of other games in the meantime.
