Gross Gore and Riot should just kiss and make up – opinion & vlog on streamers

Last week well-known UK League of Legends streamer Ali “Gross Gore” Larsen was banned from attending Riot events for one year.
It’s the latest development between the pair’s fractured relationship, following the Worlds at Wembley hotel incident last year and the more recent Twitch ban this year.
Surely it’s time now for them to put their differences behind them and at least try to work a little more amicably together in the future.
Riot needs streamers like Grossie to help promote League of Legends, and with Riot’s backing, streamers like him can gain access to more official events and ultimately produce greater, different content.
While Ali was wrong to have made inaccurate accusations against League of Legends caster Mitch “Krepo” Voorspoels, we’re not pointing the finger solely at Ali here – other streamers have been involved in slanderous and other dodgy situations on stream.
SMITE streamer DM Brandon left Hi-Rez Studios earlier this year after making some distasteful comments about suicide on stream, and LegendaryLea was banned for a month after ‘accidentally’ flashing on stream.
The point is – there are loads of streamers out there probably unaware of the laws they have to adhere to. Ultimately, they are publishers – and have to abide by many of the rules that bigger TV broadcasters and national publications have to.
They have a responsibility to learn their craft and understand what they can and can’t say on stream – they are inspiring the next generation of gamers and future eSports pros.
