The last few days have been pretty disappointing for several popular Twitch streamers. The story began when Twitch banned xQc for breaching its competitive guidelines.
While the community was still recovering from the disenchanting news, Twitch banned three other streamers. Twitch Rivals broke the news on Twitter informing the community that Liquid Mendo, Nightblue3, GrandPooBear, and Tfue had also violated its conduct rules and would face consequences.
All the banned streamers have received similar sanctions and will soon get back to streaming on Twitch. Amidst all the chaos around his ban, xQc sent out a tweet announcing his return.
The stream sniping incident that led to all this took place over a Twitch Rivals Tournament at GlitchCon. xQc and his team jeopardized a tie-breaking game, eliminating the team comprising DrLupo, Shroud, and Tyler1.
Things didn’t go as planned for the streamer, who is known for his hysterical personality. Not only did his team fail to win the tournament, but he also received a six-month ban from Twitch events. In addition, he also had to forfeit all associated prize money.
However, that’s not how things end. Stream sniping has been the talk of the town for months now, and the entire community looks down upon it.
Esfand is a popular streamer known for hosting interactive game based streams on Twitch. He said, “If it’s anything less than perma, I’ll be shocked. In fact, he should be excommunicated from the internet for what he did, absolutely. Deplatformed entirely, maybe even real-life jail. I’m dead serious…. ever heard of Alcatraz? I have, it’s what should be xQc’s new home. Yeah, life in prison. That’s just my opinion, please respect my opinion…… that is 100% true!”
Clearly, Esfand was being sarcastic about it and didn’t actually mean that. Having said that, xQc’s return might vex several streamers, but will certainly look to make amends.
