After taking out the Twitch Rivals League of Legends Showdown with Shadow Dogs Unleashed, Tarzaned has been fighting his own battles with the livestreaming platform. The popular streamer was suspended for 30 days on Twitch for “harassing another League of Legends player,” coming as a shock to him and his fanbase.
He was reduced to tears after the suspension, saying that he’d clean up his “loser act” on the platform. However, he has slammed Twitch and his doubtors over his ban, saying that his attempts to get clarification or an appeal have not been heard.

The banned jungler shared screenshots of a conversation between him and his Twitch partner manager on December 3, highlighting how he is yet to receive a reply from the platform.
“I was promised a response after thanksgiving weekend and my partner guy is refusing to respond,” he said.
His Twitch partner manager, who is unidentified, let Tarzaned know of his ban on November 26, saying that the streamer “went ham on [Tychee].”
Here's for the people saying that I'm not telling the entire story truthfully and that I'm lying.
Why would I lie to my community about something so career changing?

Tarzaned criticized the timing of the ban one hour before a major game, but his manager stated that they were unaware and they “didn’t know [he] had [Twitch Rivals].”
The streamer has then sent his manager messages daily, but has not received a reply from his manager. He has also yet to receive a human reply from Twitch regarding his ban appeal, only getting an automated response on December 2.
“Waited several days for an automated response I guess,” he said. “First offense in four years of streaming and they won’t give me an actual answer.”
It bothers me because I know for a fact that I've said WAY worse things on stream and it has never been brought up to me, so I was really caught off guard when I was told that I would be punished for this.

The streamer also believes he has said “way worse things... and it has never been brought up to [him],” with the ban over harassment catching him off guard.
Tarzaned made headlines during the Twitch Rivals League of Legends Showdown after he was notified of his suspension from the platform one hour before the grand final. His team Shadow Dogs Unleashed, led by Tyler ‘Tyler1’ Steinkamp, managed to win the tournament, with the jungler putting on an MVP performance.
Tarzaned’s ban will be lifted by December 26 unless Twitch accepts the appeal.
