Dr DisRespect was one of the notable absentees of TwitchCon 2018, and it looks like he wasn’t too keen on seeing what was happening at the event.

The two time back to back Blockbuster video game champion was streaming from his command center on Friday October 26 as the first day of Twitch’s annual event kicked off.

After deciding he’d flick on the TwitchCon keynote to find out what was happening, he changed his mind fairly quickly after the presenter announced the next section would be discussing Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins.

As Twitch’s biggest streamer, it comes as no surprise to that the Amazon owned company wanted to show off Ninja, but for the Doc, it looked as though he disapproved of someone else in the limelight.

Once the announcer said that they would be discussing Ninja’s achievements, the Doc simply exclaimed “Oh god” before closing the stream and launching Blackout.

Dr DisRespect and Ninja used to play frequently together on games such as H1Z1 and PUBG, but since the release of Fortnite, the two have been rarely spotted teaming up.

Ninja is currently the most popular user on Twitch with almost 12 million followers on his channel. Meanwhile the Doc sits at number eight with just under three million.

TwitchCon 2018 is taking place in San Jose between October 26 and 28, with the majority of the big names on the platform flying in to do everything from meet and greets to celebrity based tournaments.

Two major tournaments are taking place with Fortnite’s Fall Skirmish dishing out $2.6m and the Doritos Bowl Blackout event with $250,000 on the line.

Twitch streamer Forsen has been hit with a ban on the platform. The reasons why are unclear as it stands and nothing has been confirmed, but fans are speculating he’s another victim of DMCA regulations. 

Forsen is one of the website’s most popular streamers, with over 1.3 million followers. He has been broadcasting for almost a decade on the platform, too.

On November 26, it was confirmed that there would be another ban on his channel – and it’s not certain how long it will last for.

Speculation has already begun, with one Twitter user claiming Forsen has fallen victim to Twitch’s DMCA regulations, adding, “DMCA apparently, stream sniper played copyrighted music … The state of Twitch.”

In 2020, Several streamers have been banned for old VODs that feature any form of licensed music. The issue has affected big-name streamers including JakeNBake, LIRIK, and Pokimane to name a few. Despite Twitch apologizing and claiming to take action, the controversy still looms heavily on Twitch streamers.

This isn’t his first time facing a suspension from the platform. Sebastian ‘Forsen’ Fors was banned from Twitch for the second time on September 10, following his previous ban in May.

He wasn’t given a detailed explanation behind his account ban, but once unbanned, Forsen revealed more information. During his September 12 stream, Forsen explained he believes he was suspended for using a homophobic slur, but says it was ‘misheard’ because of his Swedish accent.

Dexerto will continue to update this story.
