Multiple Twitch users have come forward, claiming that they have been banned for typing in chat about World of Warcraft: Classic NPC’s, known as Nagas.

The release of World of Warcraft: Classic beta has seen a huge spike in viewership on Twitch for the game and many streamers have been eager to play the MMORPG.

In one of the most recent cases of TOS violations, Twitch users have come forward to claim that they were banned from the livestreaming platform for referring to a race of World of Warcraft NPC’s called ‘Nagas’, while typing in chat.

Blizzard EntertainmentWorld of Warcraft Classic has been incredibly popular since its initial release in 2004

The situation is believed to have started following a clip of Savix_Tv, in which he explains “I got my gun out and shot that Naga”.

After being shown the clip by his viewers, Savix responded by explaining that the clip looks worse out of context: “that’s out of context dude.”

Although Savix himself was not banned by Twitch, other users on livestreaming site are claiming to have been affected by using the term ‘Naga’ in chat.

There have been multiple users showing notices from Twitch about them receiving indefinite suspensions for apparently referring to the “Nagas” in WoW.

Update, 5:34AM EST, June 9: Twitch streamer DisguisedToast has labelled the claims “disingenuous”, showing that the users who were banned appeared to use the word ‘Naga’ as a substitute for a racial slur in chat.

Twitch will always shut down any activity that they deem to violate their terms of service, although they can sometimes get it wrong, as was seen with TF Blade’s ban which was quickly overturned when made public.

As of now, it is unclear if Twitch will revert these indefinite suspensions or what impact this may have for future streamers playing World of Warcraft on stream, if the term Naga is indeed being flagged.

Rapper Future has had an incredible career spanning over several decades. In that time, he’s risen through the ranks to become a household name in the rap/hip-hop genres. Now, he’s revealed the latest addition to his garage in the form of this crazy one-off Chevrolet Blazer.

Future – real name Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn – is an American rap artist from Atlanta, Georgia. In his time as a musician, he has amassed a number of awards and released several critically-acclaimed albums and tracks.

With a car collection including Lamborghinis, Rolls-Royces, and Bentleys, he has now revealed his latest addition.

Standing out from his collection of ‘typical’ exotic cars, Future has now taken delivery of his custom-commissioned Chevrolet K5 Blazer truck from renowned tuners RingBrothers.

This fully-restored, one-off build looks absolutely incredible and will stand out among Future’s other ‘stock’ cars. Finished in British Racing Green, this is a color that was not available from factory, and was used only for his personal build.

The exterior has been left mostly stock other than the color change, but the front headlights have been upgraded to LED units. Not only have the headlights been changed, but also the wheels – the stock items being replaced by a set of 18″ gold HRE wheels.

Inside, the car has been completely re-trimmed in brown leather, with a number of embossed logos throughout. The factory analog dials have been refreshed, but a 10″ touchscreen has been fitted to the dash. This is coupled to an uprated JL audio system – a key upgrade for a musician such as Future.

Future unveiled the truck on his Instagram:

Underneath the hood is the biggest upgrade to the car – a complete engine and transmission swap. The stock motor has been ditched for a 6.2l LS3 V8, coupled to an uprated GM automatic transmission. With 430hp on tap, Future will have plenty of fun driving this custom truck around.

RingBrothers co-owner Mike Ring is justifiably proud of the result: “We’re humbled that people continue to come to us for special projects like this.”

“We realize that our customers could get a new Ferrari or Lamborghini but choose us instead. It’s an honor we don’t take lightly, so we put our heart into each project. We’re glad Future appreciates that.”
