Streaming star Dimitri ‘Greekgodx’ Antonatos received a surprising ban from Twitch on November 30, nearly a year after being hit with a suspension from the platform in September 2019.

Update: December 1 at 11:47 AM PST

Greekgodx’s Twitch ban has been completed following a mysterious infraction on the popular streamer’s channel.

Shortly after Twitch locked his channel, Greek told people that he was hit with a 24-hour ban. That time has now elapsed and one of the more lively personalities on the platform can now come back in full forcer.


Original story:

Greekgodx is a famous name among live streaming circles; known for his hilarious on-stream antics and shocking weight loss journey, Greek has amassed a massive audience on Twitch, boasting well over 1.3 million followers.

However, Greek’s fans were surprised to see him hit with a ban on November 30 for no apparent reason, leading to a slew of speculation as to why the streamer was suddenly suspended from the site.

Although there has been no direct confirmation from Twitch, some theories claim that he may have breached the platform’s Terms of Service by allegedly watching street fight videos.

Still, others theorized that it might have been the result of yet another DMCA claim, with the broadcaster potentially streaming copyrighted music or other material on his channel.

However, in the end, it turned out to be nothing more than a slap on the wrist. This was confirmed by the man himself. “24-hour ban,” he said. “See ya tomorrow.”

 

Still, this isn’t the first time Greek has been banned from the site and some believe it might not be the last.

In September 2019, the streamer was hit with a 14-day suspension over what he claimed was a “silly comment about gender” regarding SoundCloud’s options when its users make an account.

Having stated that SoundCloud was “catering to cucks,” the British broadcasting star quickly apologized for the comments in a subsequent Tweet, claiming that it was “just a joke” and that he was “really sorry to anyone I offended. I didn’t mean to be hurtful or hateful.”

While there’s no telling what the reason for Greek’s most recent ban is at the time of writing, fans are hopeful that he won’t be away from the platform for too long — although considering the recent wave of Twitch bans lately, he’s certainly not alone in being unable to broadcast.

Starting in October, the community nights offered up 30,000 points, which could be redeemed for prizes.

For the duration of the three-month-long series, players could also register their teams for bi-weekly tournaments, which were held on the National Guard’s organizer page.

Every player will began with 1000 points, and was awarded 10 points for a win, or deducted 10 points for a loss. The player with the most points each night walked away with 10,000 points, 2nd and 3rd get 5,000, and 4th through 7th 2,500 each.

For the bi-weekly tournaments, starting on October 18, players were ranked on their wins/losses throughout this period. The top players proceeded to the next stage of the tournament and were rewarded with Points, from a pool of 30,000.

Missions

To make things interesting though, Missions were in-play for all matches, as a way to earn extra points. For example, actions such as getting headshots, clutches, bomb defuses, nade kills and more were rewarded.

Players were set a mission challenge, for example, get 3 clutches, and succeeding will earn points. Mor information on how missions work can be found here.
