YouTuber Yusef ‘FouseyTUBE’ Erekat responded with confusion after finding his Twitch channel has been banned on November 20.

With over 10 million subscribers on YouTube, Erekat is better known as a YouTuber than streamer, but fans also watch him on Twitch when he occasionally hosts broadcasts playing games like Fortnite.

However, his channel was struck down on November 20, likely for breaching the community guidelines, but Fousey himself claims to be unaware of the exact reason.

Twitch bans will typically last anywhere from 24 hours to 30 days, with repeat or severe violations resulting in a permanent account ban.

YouTube: FouseyFouseyTUBE is best known as a YouTuber, but has dabbled in Twitch.

Why was FouseyTUBE banned from Twitch?

The platform will typically inform partnered streamers of which community guideline violation they perpetrated, but even he isn’t sure what the cause of the suspension is.

After discovering that he had been banned, he posted on Twitter: “What does that mean and what did I do?”

In comparison to his popularity on YouTube, his Twitch channel boasted a fairly small fanbase for him, with just less than 100,000 followers.

When one fan suggested he move to Mixer – Microsoft’s streaming platform – Erekat teased that it might be something he consider, responding “what’s that?” with a wink face.

Mixer has been making attempts to muscle its way into Twitch and YouTube’s share of the livestreaming market. They have acquired some of the biggest names to stream exclusively on their platform, including Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins and Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek.

If Fousey does plan on moving his livestreaming exploits elsewhere though, he may be more inclined to simply stream on YouTube instead, where he already has 10 million subscribers.

YouTube has also been making attempts to improve its own livestream capabilities in order to rival Twitch. Fousey himself has been making a comeback to Twitch, back to more frequent uploads, following the July 15 scandal where he deleted his channel.

Like most popular streamers, Shroud has been getting stuck into the World of Warcraft: Shadowlands grind, but although he’s enjoyed it so far, he said he feels like the game is “less immersive” than it used to be.

World of Warcraft: Shadowlands has taken the world by storm ever since it launched on November 23. Players have been hopping back into Azeroth to take the reigns of their characters once again.

Popular streamers like Mike ‘Shroud’ Grzesiek have been getting stuck into the grind too. He’s been very open about how much he loves the game and has streamed hours upon hours of World of Warcraft Classic. He even said he was willing to lose viewers to stream it.

Shroud has thoroughly enjoyed playing World of Warcraft for many years now.

However, Shroud isn’t blinded by his love and adoration for the game. He still has some criticism for World of Warcraft: Shadowlands and MMORPGs in general, and he mentioned them in his latest stream.

“I feel like [MMORPG’s] and WoW, in general, have transcended into something completely different,” he said. “In the past, you [played] because you were immersed. You were leveling up your character. You were getting new items. It felt good to be more powerful and do better things.”

“Now I feel like WoW is like play with friends and kill some shit,” he said. “That feeling of immersion and truly having an impact on the world and your character feeling there has kind of nullified.”

“When I played vanilla WoW in 2005, I was 11 years old, and it felt amazing,” he said. “It felt incredible. It felt like I was in my own realm. I was in my own world. Now it doesn’t feel like that. That feeling is gone.

The relevant part of the video starts at 2:00.

It’s a sentiment that others have echoed time and time again. The consensus is that MMORPGs have been streamlined throughout the years.

However, it hasn’t stopped millions of players, including Shroud, from enjoying World of Warcraft: Shadowlands. 

Plus, despite his criticism, he thinks now is the “best time” for new players to start playing the game because the new leveling process is “really cool.”
