Team Liquid and League of Legends star Yiliang ‘Doublelift’ Peng panicked after opening up a bizarre video on stream and called on Twitch not to ban his channel.

The LCS offseason is coming to a close and pro players are beginning to ramp up for the 2020 season after some dramatic changes were made to the game ahead of season 10.

Among them is popular North American star Doublelift, who has been streaming a lot of his solo queue practice leading up to Team Liquid’s return to the main stage.

Doublelift is one of the most popular pro players in League of Legends.

While he was waiting in queue for another ranked match during his January 17 stream, Doublelift took the opportunity to watch some videos that had been recommended to him by viewers.

One of the videos he watched included highlights of the world’s largest furry convention called ‘Midwest FurFest,’ however, he quickly regretted checking it out only moments after opening it.

“These are actually real people, oh my god he’s wearing a tiger tail,” the Team Liquid ADC expressed, surprised by the lengths the furry community would go to for the massive convention.

Unfortunately for Doublelift, the highlight video also contained bizarre clips of adult toys that were available at the event, causing the League of Legends star to quickly panic in an attempt to remove it from his screen.

“What the f**k! Wait I can’t look at this, I’m going to get banned,” he exclaimed, minimizing the unusual YouTube video to comply with Twitch’s community guidelines.

“I didn’t know, I didn’t know! Holy sh*t, Twitch please don’t ban me.” Doublelift pleaded before later laughing and jokingly adding not to let the site’s moderation team see the clip, “Guys, do not tell the mods what just happened.”

As the Team Liquid star’s managed to quickly remove the bizarre clip from his stream, it would be unlikely for his channel to receive a ban for the accidental error. However, many have complained about the broadcasting platform’s inconsistent decisions for past events. Some streamers have been handed bans for showing prohibited content even momentarily, so Doublelift is better safe than sorry.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez broke records with her debut Twitch stream as she laughed and bumbled her way through Among Us and the internet couldn’t get enough. Now, she’s all set to do it once again with some massive names joining up for the big return.

It wasn’t the biggest individual stream Twitch has ever seen ⁠— that honor remains with Ninja and Drake ⁠— but Ocasio-Cortez, fondly nicknamed AOC, came awfully close when she went live on Oct. 28 for more than 439k eager viewers.

The huge stream, backed by AOC’s desire to “sell the vote” to gamers, scribed the US representative into Twitch’s history books. It also left the internet hungry for more ⁠— AOC’s bubbly personality and funny wit had endeared her to millions.

For weeks eager viewers were left pondering when she’d make her return. Now, we finally have a solid date locked in and even know some of the names she’ll be streaming with. Here’s everything you need to know about AOC’s upcoming return to Twitch.

The internet at large has been baying for AOC to hit that “go live” button again sooner rather than later. Now her electoral race is won and her sights can shift back over to Twitch.

Despite some earlier teases, it’s been just over a month since the first historic broadcast, but now we have a date for the next one. AOC will be going live on Twitch on Friday, November 27 at 4 PM PT | 7PM EST.

Last time, Ocasio-Cortez streamed mid-week, on a Tuesday and the spectacle ran for just a few hours. Expect a similar duration this time around given the late evening start time.

What will AOC play? League, Among Us, Fall Guys

AOC hasn’t yet branched out to anything other than some Among Us gameplay. It’s a casual experience that anyone can jump into, so it removes any busywork from her broadcasts.

Last time she paired up with fellow US rep Ilhan Omar, Pokimane, and more on InnerSloth’s smash-hit. It appears that she’ll be doing much the same this time around, but with a few fresh faces.

Canadian Member of Parliament Jagmeet Singh will be getting into the mix, as will popular Twitch streamers Hasan and Northernlion.

However, the New York politician could also try her hand at League of Legends on-stream down the line. Pokimane said she would “be here anytime [AOC] needed,” to which Ocasio-Cortez suggested LoL.

“League duo bot?! Except I haven’t played in months, I’m gonna be real bad,” AOC joked on Twitter in reply to Pokimane. “Maybe Among Us again, for a bit.”

A League of Legends stream certainly makes sense; Pokimane first made her name on LoL, and AOC is a self-confessed League lover, though she says she’s not played it “a whole lot.”

She must have played a bit at least, though, because on Nov. 14 ⁠— a month after revealing she was Bronze V ⁠— she shared on Instagram she had been promoted to Silver IV, one whole ranked tier higher. That’s some serious grinding!

The 31-year-old mainly plays Sona, Janna, Lux, and Morgana, and is “working on Lulu” to add to her champ pool; Pokimane will have to play ADC if they duo queue. Perhaps with her second stream now locked in, a special LoL broadcast could be right around the corner as well.

AOC's second Twitch stream could be another record-breaking broadcast.
