Major streamers are pushing Twitch to ban gambling
How did it all begin? For months now, there has been a “gambling” controversy on Twitch. Some of Twitch’s biggest streamers, like xQc or Trainwreck, stream gambling games – other streamers like Asmongold or Mizkif criticize them for doing so.
Twitch said they were investigating but didn’t do anything.

Then resigned Twitch quickly clamped down on gambling.

But Twitch’s biggest gaming streamer, Trainwreck, wasn’t about to put up with it: it “retaliated” against Mizkif by making serious allegations of its own.

- Mizkif downplayed and covered up the incident
- Broadcaster AdrianahLee then went public and confirmed the allegations against Mizkif and his then-girlfriend Maya (via dotesport)
As a result, not only Mizkif got into big trouble, but also his group OTK.
Streamer Asmongold had to interveneMizkif went on leave and said he would investigate the case.
5 hours of contentious talk between disputed broadcasters
It was now Call: Apparently, to get rid of the problems in the room, there was an internal discord call a few days ago.

- was called
- “hard things” were said.
- this was not a PR call, but a real argument. Exact information was not known (via youtube)
It was probably to get rid of the “bad blood” and see how to get rid of it. xQc said: This was such a tough topic that you don’t want to say anything bad.
So, gambling broadcasters xQc and Trainwreck took part in a 5-hour chat with OTK members like Asmongold and Mizkif.
