Apex Legends broadcast.

Dellor is a former Overwatch pro and is highly ranked in other online games such as Fortnite, PUBG, League of Legends and Apex Legends.

Concerns have been raised for the streamer after he posted a worrying TwitLonger a few hours following his ban.

What happened?

In their latest ban, Twitch chose to remove dellor from the platform the exact same day he was supposed to be able to get Twitch partner subscriptions back (which are a major source of revenue for streamers) after having his partnership removed earlier in 2019.

While streaming Apex on October 1, dellor tore his keyboard apart after being downed in Skulltown.

The streamer raged about stream snipers as he literally ripped his keyboard in half before slamming down his chair.

Why was dellor banned?

Shortly after the smash, dellor’s stream cut off, and following this, the streamer provided a Twitter update, in which he claimed that he’d been banned for “self harm”.

“Banned indefinitely for ‘self harm’ for breaking a keyboard on stream,” he wrote. “I bought these keyboards specifically because of how cheap and fragile they are. I’ve broken hundreds of them and have never even scratched myself.”

Dellor argued that some of the streams in which he had broken keyboards in the past had even been watched by Twitch staff – but he’d never even received a warning before being banned for the offense on October 1.

A simple Google search returns plenty of clips from dellor’s now-banned channel of his smashes.

Dellor posts concerning Tweet

In a Twitlonger posted after the incident, dellor said that the latest ban has broken him, but his contact inside of Twitch told him that there was nothing they could do.

In the post, he writes, “I love you all for what you’ve blessed me with but I don’t want to continue living in this world anymore.”

The streamer’s message has caused serious concern among the community about his wellbeing.

It’s not the first time dellor has run into trouble with Twitch, either – he lost his partnership earlier in 2019 after a sexist outburst

The latest ban seems to have come out of nowhere and blindsided the streamer, who’s concerning messages on Twitter have a lot of people worried.

Call of Duty

xQc stunned by toxic Call of Duty players in Black Ops Cold War

Twitch Star Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel is no stranger to trash talk, but what he heard while playing Call of Duty: Cold War was enough to throw even him for a loop.

Call of Duty: Cold War is one of the hottest games on Twitch right now, and xQc certainly seems to have gotten a taste of the series’ legendary chatroom toxicity.

We’re not saying that this is a symptom of the CoD community overall, but the series has built up a reputation for being host to some hilariously venomous lobbies. xQc found this out firsthand while sitting in a lobby, and after getting knocked out.

The face when the CoD lobby gets a little too lit.

Ask anyone who’s played Call of Duty for long enough, and there’s a good chance is they’ll have a hilarious story about a toxic lobby or three that they’ve been a part of over the years. Now, xQc can officially add that to his list of accomplishments as well.

During a late-night/early morning stream on November 17, Felix ran into a rowdy lobby he tried to calm down in vain, before being called out himself.

“Guys, guys, guys, it’s 3 AM on a f***ing Monday, you guys are playing Call of Duty talking shit,” the former Overwatch pro begged, to no avail, and got told to shut his mouth, just not quite with that exact term.

After this, you’d probably figure things couldn’t get more radioactive, right? Well, you would be wrong, because Felix also ran into some incredibly toxic personalities while he was playing.

After getting knocked out, xQc asked, “It was you right?” before being told in graphic detail what his assailant wanted to do to him. We won’t type the quote out here, but the clip below should give you the gist.

The Canadian does come from the wild west that can be Overwatch games, but nothing really compares to being cursed out by an absolute random in CoD.

Whether Felix will return to Black Ops remains to be seen, especially since he seems to have had the full experience during this stream alone.
