Dr Disrespect’s Fortnite tournament had some weird rules for Twitch streamers

The mysterious Dr. disrespect Twitch ban in 2020 (opens in new tab) continues to cause the strangest inconveniences, as seen with these bizarre rules for a Fortnite tournament that took place over the weekend.

The streamer hosted the Hot Shot Duo Drop, a $100,000 tournament that took place on Epic’s battle royale. It featured some big Twitch names like Tfue, Summit1g, and Zemie, who obviously stream their games on the same site that Dr Disrespect is permanently banned from. As a chess grandmaster and five-time US champion Hikaru Nakamura discovered (opens in new tab) in March, Twitch isn’t exactly hot on streamers showing off Dr Disrespect on their website.

To combat this, tournament organizer BoomTV has set some seemingly outlandish rules to avoid the same drama, as shared by Jake Lucky of Full Squad Gaming on Twitter (thanks, IGN (opens in new tab)). “Using your channel to intentionally introduce or advertise a suspended user is prohibited,” the rules read. “We understand that there may be instances where suspended users may appear on your stream due to circumstances beyond your control, such as third-party game tournaments, but we expect you to make a good faith effort to remove them from your stream, mute, or limit their interactions with your stream.”

Advice offered included using “other names for Dr Disrespect” such as “two-time video game champion Blockbuster”, muting him in-game, hiding any images or videos of him from the stream, and even avoiding sharing the tournament or support page. on the stream, both with the name and face of Dr. Disrespect

It seems some pretty extreme lengths to avoid any mention of the Doc on the website, but with the details about his ban and the subsequent process (opens in new tab)-what is it finally resolved in march (opens in new tab)– still shrouded in mystery, is likely to be for the best.
