Banned Twitch streamer ICE_POSEIDON tried to take part in yesterday’s Fortnite tournament organized by KEEMSTAR, but Twitch ruled he was not allowed to even appear on someone else’s stream.

Now one of the most popular streamers on YouTube, ICE_POSEIDON was banned from Twitch in May of last year, after a messy swatting incident.

Since taking his talents to YouTube, he has continued in his ways of ‘In Real Life’ streaming, where he records and streams his daily activities.

But yesterday, he attempted to stream some video games, by taking part in the KEEMSTAR organized Fortnite tournament, alongside Twitch streamer Mitch Jones.

However, after playing a number of matches, it was discovered that Twitch were in face strictly enforcing the rules of the ban, with the ruling being that ICE_POSEIDON was not allowed to appear on any streams, even if it was not his own.

Twitch rulings perhaps deemed POSEIDON as attempting evasion, meaning he was trying to stream on the site despite his ban, however, he was clearly surprised that the ruling would extend to channel’s not his own.

In their rounds against other players, they were forced to change the setup of the matches, in order to avoid ICE_POSEIDON’s Fortnite character on stream.

Typically the games would operate with all four players in a squad game, and would chase the highest kills in their respective duos. But when playing against ICE_POSEIDON, would have to enter their own games so to avoid showing his name on stream.

Twitch streamer banned after being denied partnership over age

Twitch streamer AverageHarry has been permanently banned after his partnership application was denied, and they discovered he allegedly signed up while under the age of 13.

AverageHarry has been through a bit of a roller-coaster ride lately. It started back in October 2020 when a video of him getting mocked by strangers and crying on stream went viral.

Since then, his popularity skyrocketed, and he applied to become a Twitch partnered streamer. However, the application was denied in January 2021 after discovering he made the account when he was less than 13 years old, which didn’t align with his account details.

But the drama doesn’t end there. Twitch also said he could lose access to his account because of the restriction. Now, it appears they have doubled down on that claim and made it happen.

AverageHarry went viral after some strangers laughed at him in public while he was streaming.

“I have just been permabanned on Twitch,” said AverageHarry. “For anyone wondering, this is why. He shared a previous tweet, which included a screenshot of the email he received when they denied his application.

“You’ve listed your age as 15, although this doesn’t appear to align with your account details,” said Twitch. “Please get in touch with Twitch support in order to see whether you can update your birthday to be accurate. Otherwise, you may need to make a new account with correct details.”

However, AverageHarry hasn’t given up yet. “I’ll have a video out tomorrow talking about it all,” he said. “I am allowed to make another account, but I have just lost nearly 90k followers.”

He might try and have the ban overturned, which could happen if enough people rally behind him. And it seems like they are, with many people sharing their support on social media. “He genuinely seemed like a good kid,” wrote one user. “Hope he makes a new account and stuff.”

“That Twitch account was made by his parents and given to him by his parents after he was 13 and provided proof for that,” wrote another. “But [he] still got his account removed. [I] hope the best for him.”

In the end, though, Twitch is treating it as a serious matter and won’t want to set a precedent. So, it will be interesting to see what happens and whether their decision is final.
