During a YouTube stream on November 12, Doc claimed he was put “on a list” by the video game company.
“Champs, I am on a shadowban list from EA. There, I’ll say it, I’ve been shadowbanned from EA,” the streamer explained. “I’m on a list. Since the purple snake scummy ban, we’ve taken a hit on so many things behind the scenes champs.”
“We’ve taken a hit on so many things, and not just the original [Twitch] contract,” Doc continued, referencing the large earnings loss he’s experienced since switching platforms.
This doesn’t mean Dr Disrespect can’t play EA games, as he streams Apex Legends from time to time. Instead, it refers to the publisher not working with him on any sponsorships or deals.
Doc has talked extensively about the networking and marketing challenges he and his brand have faced since being banned from Twitch as well. So, we could see the EA shadowban brought up again when his lawsuit against the site happens.
When the suit does happen, there will be a bunch of new information that comes out. This could include damages he’s faced from lost deals as mentioned here, and even why he was banned in the first place.
