He originally started playing Minecraft in mid-2015, later switching on to Roblox in mid-2016.
His account ZephPlayzYT was terminated for the usage of assets which did not belong to him. Fans speculated that this was because he created the game Prison Island, copying the popular game known as "Jailbreak", the only added change being administrator commands of which he would sometimes give out in videos.
In his next video, he states that he emailed Roblox Support and they stated that he was instead terminated for "scamming or phishing attempts". Fans speculated that Roblox Support meant that they thought Zeph was creating "free robux" scam games. He stated multiple times in the video that he had never done anything like that, leading fans to believe he was falsely reported by someone. After he was banned, he thought of quitting Roblox but began making more videos after deciding that the termination was for no reason. He soon created a new account named "StarCodeZephPlayz" (previously "OriginalZephPlayz") that he is now active on.
