After a week long ban from Twitch, Daniel “dafran” Francesca confirmed his strategy to not run into any more trouble on the platform going forward.

The popular streamer and former Overwatch League star was hit with a 30-day suspension on November 13.  The streamer said the temporary ban was because of his “ignorance” and saying “stupid sh*t all the time.”

The Atlanta Reign streamer claimed a few days after it happened that the “last reformation of dafran has begun.”

Dafran revealed on November 22 that his suspension had been lifted early, and promised to start a brand new chapter upon his return to Twitch.

Has dafran 3.0 arrived?

The streamer shared the news he would be back streaming early on Twitter, and promised to become “SEAGULL V2.”

“I will become a flower. This time, I will for real become SEAGULL V2,” dafran wrote on Twitter. “I will sprout into a beautiful soul.”

Even though he apparently got unbanned on November 22, the streamer said his first stream back would be a day later on Nov 23.

“Day 1 of perfection begins tomorrow,” dafran continued. “The role model you all wanted is coming.”

Fellow Overwatch streamer and former OWL pro Brandon ‘Seagull’ Larned seemed excited he could serve as an inspiration to his friend upon his return.

“PMA (positive mental attitude) DAFRAN?” the former Dallas Fuel player posted in response to the streamer’s return.

Will dafran be coming back to Overwatch?

Even though we don’t know for sure how long dafran will stick to his new “family-friendly” streaming strategy, he has said he plans to hop right back into Ovewatch and the new PTR patch.

The patch’s nerfs to the current double shield meta have a lot of people, including dafran, excited about the changes.

Even if the patch doesn’t have the massive effects most people are hoping for, dafran fans and Overwatch fans will be glad to have the streamer back on Twitch.


Asmongold defends Forsen after learning the real reason for Twitch ban

Popular Twitch star ‘Asmongold’ went to bat for fellow streamer Sebastian ‘Forsen’ Fors after the Swede was banned from the platform on November 26.

At first, no one knew the real reason for Forsen’s ban, with some thinking it may have been DMCA-related. However, viewers soon discovered that for a brief moment in a recent broadcast he showed a gif of a horse in a very inappropriate scene.

Despite this, Asmongold decided to stick up for Forsen during his own broadcast and call out Twitch for banning him due to an honest mistake.

“How the f**k is that going to be TOS? If…I don’t understand. You’ve got other people and they’re going around showing Animal Planet,” he explained. “Like you see literal animals killing each other, but you see a horse’s d**k?”

To this, Asmongold makes an interesting point. There are streams on Twitch that document animals in the wild and they can get into some rather freaky situations that, while natural, aren’t exactly the kind of thing you’d show your boss.

“Listen, horses don’t wear clothes, you know that?” the streamer sarcastically stated. “So, if you look at a horse, you’re going to see their d**k. Like, that’s all there is to it. It’s weird, man.”

However, right after making this argument, the streamer learned that it wasn’t just the horse that got Forsen banned, but the girl who was in the gif with the animal that changed the whole conversation. Briefly, anyway.

“Okay, that’s a little bit different,” he confessed. “It’s a little bit more than what I thought it was.”

Despite this, Asmongold still defended Forsen for the mistake of showing the gif. “I don’t think it’s really that big of a deal. You show that for like a second, right? Cause it’s an accident.”

According to the popular World of Warcraft player, one second of footage shouldn’t determine a whole Twitch career. “That seems stupid to me,” he added. “But you know, here we are.”

Unfortunately for Forsen, the streamer says this time, his ban is indefinite and it’s unclear when, if ever, he will be unbanned.

Hopefully, with Asmongold speaking out, Twitch can agree to let this incident slide and let Fors back on the platform so he can stream again.
