Tarzaned slams Twitch for radio silence after lengthy ban

League of Legends star Julian ‘Tarzaned’ Farokhian has criticized Twitch’s appeal system and his own partner manager, as his attempts to get his 30-day suspension reversed have fallen on deaf ears.

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].” 

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.”

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.


KSI calls out Jake Paul after YouTuber KO’s Nate Robinson in boxing bout

It’s been no time at all, but Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji has already called out Jake Paul ahead of their prospective bout at Madison Square Garden, saying that after his performance against Nate Robinson, Paul stands no chance.

It was the fight everyone had their eyes on November 28. On the undercard of Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr, YouTuber Jake Paul was set to bout with NBA star Nate Robinson.

What we got instead was a bloodbath. Robinson was trounced by Paul, getting knocked down multiple times before Paul laid the final blow in the second round. Robinson barely laid a glove on Paul despite coming out all guns blazing.

While millions watched, there was one spectator on the sidelines with more on the line than most ⁠— Jake Paul’s next prospective opponent, KSI.

The YouTuber has already faced off against Paul’s older brother Logan, beating the American not once but twice. Jake fancies his chances a little bit better, but KSI wasn’t impressed by the younger brother’s skills against Robinson.

As soon as the fight ended, KSI already started the war back up with the Pauls. “I saw nothing special from Jake lol. Soon come,” he said on Twitter.

The thinly-veiled threat at Jake Paul is alluding to their prospective bout at Madison Square Garden, pending the current global situation.

Paul has been pretty vocal about making sure the fight goes ahead, saying he has a point to prove against the British YouTuber. “KSI vs Jake Paul is 100% gonna happen. If I die without that happening, I would be so upset. It has to happen, for the culture,” he said in September.

While Paul didn’t direct address KSI post-fight ⁠— instead calling out Conor McGregor for a bout ⁠— the rivalry between the two YouTubers is fierce.

One can only hope they do actually make good on their promise and get in the ring.
