What Is GTA RP And The NoPixel Server?

For those that may not be aware of the NoPixel Server, here’s a quick rundown.

NoPixel is a popular roleplaying server that takes place in the game Grand Theft Auto Online. The server is only open to popular streamers and first began in February of 2019.

Many view the server as a TV show, trying to keep up to date with all of the latest drama unfolding. This is because people role play on the server and will often take on the role of a cop, shop clerk, or maybe even a thief. The possibilities for the server are endless, but it’s important to stay in character while you’re playing.

There are many other Grand Theft Auto Roleplaying servers around if you’re not a streamer. The aim is to give the game a bit more personality and purpose. If you want to join an RP server, you’ll need to install some mods to enable you to play as a cop, criminal, shop owner and many more. There’s plenty of tutorials online, so if you’re looking to spice up your GTA experience, a roleplaying server could be for you. Be warned, hardcore RP players take it very seriously.

Why Did xQc Get Banned From NoPixel Again?

So what did xQc do this time to get himself banned from the NoPixel server?

On April 4, xQc was yet again banned from the GTA server. This time it was because xQc was arrested by the cops on the server and sentenced to 224 months in jail. After being detained, xQc encouraged his chat to head over to other live streamers chat, presumably to cause trouble.

There has been no comment from the officials of the NoPixel server, so there is a possibility that the chat hopping situation isn’t the real reason for the ban. However, it’s likely to be the reason for xQc’s third ban from the server.
