The streamer said that he won’t be referring to chat for his every other move regardless of if they win or lose. He shared it’s very irritating to watch a screen full of arguments in between the match. If not controlled, there comes a time when everyone will start doing it. That is when the streamer warned about straight banning people permanently. Nickmercs also told that he’s all open to supportive and constructive arguments, but won’t tolerate behavior like this.

This is what the streamer told the fans:

“We don’t need five thousand people on our f**king ear when something doesn’t go our way, especially when we are talking about it. Just allow us to have that conversation even if it is in front of you without the f**king bullsh*t. You guys just make it worse, you make everybody a little bit more uncomfortable, you increase the tension you know..when you do that. When you are supportive, it’s the opposite.”

As of now, it’s a good thing that he is not banning anybody, but fans must consider this as a warning. Of course, this kind of behavior by fans is something that is not appreciated by anybody. Many fans have this opinion that streaming is the easiest job in the world, but the reality is very different. In fact, events like this prove that being a streamer with millions of fans is not an easy job. Hopefully, fans will be more considerate of streamers’ feelings going forward.
