XANTARES to Stream CS:GO on Different Platform After Permanent Twitch Ban
Professional Counter-Strike player and one of the most popular CS:GO streamers in the world, İsmailсan "XANTARES" Dörtkardeş came forward yesterday on 8th August to officially announce his decision of switching streaming platforms. It has been more than a month since XANTARES was handed a permanent ban from Twitch, where he had managed to grow his channel to more than 500,000 followers. According to XANTARES, he never found out the exact reason for being removed from the streaming platform, as Twitch simply labelled it as a 'community violation'.
XANTARES further revealed that he did not even receive any emails from Twitch considering how long the ban would last, or since when would he be able to continue streaming on the platform again.
XANTARES to switch CS:GO streaming platform
XANTARES has officially stated that he will be switching his CS:GO streaming platform. He did not mention the name of the platform that he would be making the switch to, but he did say "see you soon", this means that he will likely be streaming CS:GO again in the near future.
After stepping down from BIG's active CS:GO roster and currently scouting new opportunities, XANTARES who recently underwent an ETS surgery to reduce excessive sweating from his hands, has reportedly been linked to an upcoming Turkish CS:GO super team which also consists of Özgür "woxic" Eker.
Initially, XANTARES thought that the Twitch ban imposed against him was a regular week-long one, something that he has faced in the past as well. So he took to Twitter to state that "I got banned from Twitch guys, I don't know why but I definitely deserve it, it's not their fault".
But the very next day on 29th June he learned that Twitch had handed him a permanent ban, with the reason being linked to 'communty violation'. No email was received by the player from Twitch, so XANTARES had little to no idea if he would continue streaming or not.
Now, the Turkish rifler seems to have run out of patience with no sign of the ban being lifted or any other resolution being provided by Twitch.
