Timmy "iiTzTimmy" An was banned by Riot Games for smurfing during an Iron to Radiant stream.
After An's agency 'Loaded' talked to Riot Games, he was able to get his account back.
Riot Games has unbanned him but his Valorant account is likely to be taken down after he completes the challenge as it violates the game's terms of service.

Timmy "iiTzTimmy" An is no stranger to ridiculous on-stream challenges with the 21-year-old previously clocking in 1 million unique viewers during a solo Bronze to Predator Apex Legends stream. Timmy spent 54 hours trying to get Predator and he finally achieved it while also gaining 13,000 Twitch subscribers along the way. He tried replicating the feat in Valorant by attempting to go from Iron to Radiant in a single sitting and it looks like Riot Games was not too happy about it.

Why was IitzTimmy banned by Riot Games

Riot Games recently banned a large number of smurfs in Valorant as part of its efforts to uphold the competitive integrity. Timmy smurfing on his way to Radiant caught the attention of Riot Games but the ban was short lived. It looks like Timmy was notified by Riot during his stream that he would be banned after reaching Radiant.

He said “I got banned for smurfing, unfortunately. I shouldn’t get banned, I should be able to finish this marathon. It isn’t cheating, chat… The whole challenge from Iron to Radiant is a little grey area. You know the whole smurfing (thing)…it’s in a really weird area. My agency will be talking to Riot now so I just have to wait.”

After an hour of waiting, Timmy’s account was restored and he continued his journey to Radiant. He is currently Immortal 2 and is inching closer to Radiant on stream. Riot Games is likely to ban his account once again if he completes the challenge.
