Streamer NoPixel GTA RP SAVx faked his own death after being banned
Koil, who is the owner and lead developer of the popular NoPixel server for the online role-playing game “Grand Theft Auto”, announced on Wednesday that former Twitch streamer SAVx had faked his own death.
SAVx has played Johnny Cassle on the NoPixel server before be permanently banned in November 2020. SAVx was banned after being surprised using an aimbotter, what was evident in this clip. He then disappeared in December and in January it was announced that he had passed away.
However, rumors that SAVx was still alive started circulating last week when Koil brought up the topic on his stream. Koil initially opened up the SAVx Twitter page, but it later turned out that a fan had restarted the account to keep the username alive. But then Koil started to dig a little deeper.
“We did some research with his name to try and find obituaries and stuff,” Koil said. “Everything tells me that he is not really dead.
After that, Koil brought up messages that SAVx sent to Ramee in Discord. Ramee (whose GTA RP name is also Ramee), is a popular Twitch streamer with 360,000 subscribers on the platform. Koil shared screenshots of Ramee and SAVx’s conversation where SAVx said he “faked everything.”
Screenshots of their conversation can be seen below (including the NSFW language).
“I just wanted to be done with the whole community and all that is—” SAVx said in the post. “I must remember [I] also knew people in the community outside of this one, so even though I went on with my life, I didn’t [want to f— with] them.”
At first, there was some confusion as to whether the person who message Ramee from SAVx’s Discord was in fact him. After all, everyone thought SAVx had died a few months ago.
Ramee discussed the topic on his stream.
On January 14, 2021, Nidas (who plays Leslie on the NoPixel server) released a statement announcing the death of SAVx. The statement states that he was informed by SAVx’s brother of the streamer’s death and that he was deceased. It was then announced that he was “dead” on Christmas Day 2020.
The name of SAVx has even been added to the server memorial, which honors server streamers who have died in real life.
But after the Discord messages between SAVx and Ramee went public, it sparked all kinds of speculation. One of the SAVx moderators wrote a message on SAVx’s Discord saying they didn’t know what was going on.
“None of us Mods; or guys know what’s going on with SAV; trust me, we all miss him,” wrote Dorky, the SAVx mod. “People are free to draw their own conclusions as to whether he’s alive or dead, it’s up to you to decide and think about it.”
As it started to become fairly obvious that SAVx had faked his own death, this was confirmed on Wednesday morning during Koil’s airing.
“We asked someone to investigate some things, like we hired a guy or people, and he’s 100% confirmed to be alive by the way,” Koil said. “There’s literally no doubt. Real evidence. So we have all of this information, but obviously I can’t divulge it because it’s pretty much doxxing. But we know everything about him, like the names, addresses and all that is. “
Since all of this information came out, the name of SAVx has been removed from the server’s memorial stone. Shotz (who plays Vinny on NoPixel), also distanced himself from SAVx by changing his license plate from POG 07 (a tribute to SAVx) to NICO.
