Controversial streamer ICE_POSEIDON has claimed that Twitch have done a U-Turn on their ruling banning him from appearing on other Twitch streams, ahead of the second KEEMSTAR Fortnite tournament.

ICE_POSEIDON of course had his personal Twitch channel banned over a year ago, and now streams his infamous daily ‘in real life’ broadcasts on YouTube instead.

However, when taking part in the first Friday Fortnite tournament, ICE discovered that his ban actually extended to cover even appearing on other people’s Twitch streams.

And not only physically, but his in game character and voice were also reportedly not permitted to be shown or heard on any stream.

This of course made participation in KEEMSTAR’s tournament fairly tricky, as his partner was prevented from streaming on Twitch and their opponents in matches were similarly forced to play in separate lobbies (other matches had all players in the same Fortnite lobby).

ICE_POSEIDON later posted on social media about the absurdity of Twitch’s ruling, calling it ‘flawed and negative’.

However, according to him, Twitch have now lessened the severity of the ban, allowing ICE to participate in the second of what is set to be a weekly Fortnite tournament.

Apparently KEEMSTAR reached out to Twitch personally, asking if ICE would be permitted to appear in game on other Twitch channels, to which they responded positively – provided that he was not “the main focus”.

This is allegedly not what the position was previously, with ICE claiming Twitch staff were personally reaching out to streamers instructing them not show him in game whatsoever.

KEEMSTAR’s second Fortnite tournament is scheduled to take place on Friday May 18th, with the full lineup being announced beforehand.


xQc begs his Twitch fans to stop sending so many “sad” donations

In a hilarious but sincere rant, xQc begged his fans to stop sending so many “sad” donation messages, particularly when they happen one after the other and even more so when they are fake.

Twitch donations are the best way for fans to pass on a message to their favorite streamers. Not all streamers have text-to-speech for donations turned on, and even they do, they don’t always hear them. However, it’s still more effective than spamming in the chat.

Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel gets bombarded with donation messages every stream. They’re often funny, but they can sometimes be sad and depressing. xQc has finally had enough of that, particularly when it’s excessive and insincere.

The Twitch star has slotted (deliberately or otherwise) into his 'bad guy' role perfectly.

The Twitch star had a lot to say about “sad” donations during a recent stream.

“Let me talk about this once and for all,” he said. “I realize this kind of like a picky topic… but I’ll just tell you straight up, okay? The emotional [donation messages] are fine when they’re true.”

“The problem is when there’s too many of them that are stacked, it feels like… all the energy goes down,” he added.

“Sometimes it’s f**king overwhelming,” he said. “I feel bad for the people that are having tough times, legitimately, and they’re struggling. They’re trying to get under the wave of BigPog, and you just pull everybody down.”

“When there’s a couple, it’s fine,” he added. “But when it’s too stacked, I feel bad for the people that are just trying to escape. They’re getting f**ked on over and over again. It’s selfish as sh*t.”

“Those that bait it are even worse,” he said. “It’s fake, and it’s trolling, and it’s f**king stupid as sh*t. I’m tired of it, dude. That sh*t is garbage. I could have said it in a better way, but there’s no way around it. Holy sh*t, man.”

“I don’t want to shut down people from saying stuff that they’re going through,” he added. “Just be mindful not to stack it all. I don’t want this stream to become a ship of despair.”

xQc has never been one to bite his tongue, and he didn’t hold back here. However, somebody posted the clip on Reddit, and it seems like others sympathize with him.

“I feel bad for the people, but it just completely ruins the mood every time,” wrote one user, which ended up being the top comment. “I love watching XQC, but [text-to-speech] is unbearable,” wrote another.

In the end, though, there’s two sides to every story. It will be interesting to see what donors who leave these messages haveto say. Maybe they’ll understand.
