FaZe Adapt “confused” after Twitch bans him for inappropriate content

FaZe Adapt has been banned from Twitch but the popular content creator is all too confused over what may have actually led to the punishment.

Amid a period of inconsistent consequences across the Amazon-owned streaming platform, Alexander ‘FaZe Adapt’ Hamilton has found himself barred from going live.

The FaZe Clan member couldn’t quite tell you what led to the punishment, however, as he took to Twitter to vent his frustrations on April 30.

Adapt’s channel has been locked down as of April 30.

“This is pretty cringe,” the 22-year-old content creator said on Twitter as he revealed a temporary punishment from Twitch. Adapt received a three-day suspension after broadcasting “suggestive content or activities.”

With over 130,000 followers on his channel, Adapt had recently been building out his presence on Twitch. Throughout the month of April alone, he gained over 40,000 new members.

Expanding on the situation, it seems as though both Adapt and his viewers are all but stumped as to what actually caused the ban. No warning was issued, and the official email failed to address how Adapt broke the rules.

Claiming that he avoided anything too risky on stream, Adapt argued that he “never showed anything like that unless [he’s] just completely clueless.”

Countless fans chimed in also questioning just what could have resulted in the punishment from Twitch. 

Closing in on six million subscribers on YouTube, perhaps the vague ban could force Adapt to jump ship with his livestreaming efforts.

In such a tumultuous time for the platform, with a seemingly inconsistent approach to handing out bans and suspensions, this latest action has just led to more confusion.

At the time of writing, no clips have surfaced that showcase Adapt breaking the Twitch terms of service. If anything comes to light, it’ll be included here shortly.


xQc slams Fortnite’s competitive changes as “unfair” in Season 5

Twitch streamer Félix ‘xQc’ Lengyel has slammed the current state of Fortnite’s competitive arena mode and the casual features it includes. 

The release of Fortnite’s Season 5 has brought a wealth of changes and new content for players to check out. These new features include new NPC’s, dialogue, and side missions which have been added to both the standard and competitive mode.

Epic’s decision to add these extra features to Fortnite’s competitive mode has displeased certain members of the community. Twitch personality xQc has voiced his opinion on the matter in a heated rant whilst streaming.

xQc criticizes Fortnite’s competitive mode in rant

Everybody enjoys checking out new features in games, especially when it’s as exciting as a new season in Fortnite. New dialogue, music, and NPC’s all assist in making gameplay more immersive and fun, but should they be added into a game’s competitive mode?

That’s the ongoing debate taking place in the Fortnite community as Epic has opted to add all of Season 5’s new features to the competitive mode. This had led to members of the community arguing that these features water down the competitive nature of arena matches.

Twitch personality xQc has expressed his view on the topic, slamming Fortnite’s competitive mode in a rant on stream: “how is that I queue for a competitive game mode and there is quests to do, there’s bots, there’s side missions… I queued to play against players.”

As you can see, it’s obvious xQc isn’t the biggest fan of the new features added to competitive.

A competitive mode should provide players with an environment in which skill determines a victor. Therefore, it’s easy to see why members of the Fortnite community are frustrated that these features are being added to arena matches.

A solution offered by xQc is to clearly establish a casual and competitive mode: “I feel a lot of the time this game tries to bridge competitive and casual at the same time… that’s unfair to people who only care about competitive.”

Currently, casual and competitive receive the same features so it’s difficult to establish a difference between the two.

This is certainly an issue Epic may have to address if the community continues to complain about the cluttered state of the game’s competitive mode.
