Oleksandr “s1mple” Kostyliev is once again banned from Twitch and he’s not happy. The ban which was placed on his account on November 28th is his second in recent months.
Considered one of the best Counter-Strike players of all time, s1mple is regularly found broadcasting on the popular streaming platform where he is a partner.
The Natus Vincere player was banned in August 2019 for using a homophobic slur targeted as his teammates. He, of course, felt he shouldn’t be banned as he was just “joking” with a friend but the ban was upheld nonetheless.
This time things seem to be playing out in similar fashion as he states this was once again Twitch misunderstanding the situation. He claims that Twitch “doesn’t understand the different meanings of the same word in different contexts.”
He didn’t stop there though, stating that he is “tired of streaming on a terrible platform.”
The CS:GO star may be speaking in the heat of the moment, but he is throwing around some big reactions as he claims he wants to remove his partnership with Twitch. While he states his ban prevents him from doing it himself, he asks the broadcast platform to do it for him.
Could we see s1mple move to another platform such as Mixer or YouTube? It’s certainly possible but at this time it doesn’t appear anything is in progress.
