“Taking a break isn’t going to be easy but I know it’s the right thing. I’m heading back home for a bit to be with my family and reflect on what’s most important to me in life and where I want to go next.

High-profile gamers like Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins criticised the ban, claiming it was overly harsh because Kaye did not use the cheat in a competitive match. But Epic Games stood by its decision.

“When people use aimbots or v buck generator other cheat technologies to gain an unfair advantage, they ruin games for people who are playing fairly.”

Kaye is a member of the FaZe Clan eSports team and was living in an £11 million mansion in the Hollywood Hills with his teammates before the ban.

“I’m not trying to find a quick road out but being banned forever is just – a lifetime ban – is just, I just didn’t know this would happen,” he said.
