UK Call of Duty player Thomas ‘Tommey’ Trewren has received a temporary ban on Twitch.
The content creator, who works as a streamer for 100 Thieves, was apparently hit by the 14-day ban due to revealing ‘non-sensitive personal information in a VOD’, according to Dexerto, though it’s not clear what specifically happened.
Tommey said he wasn’t given a clear reason by Twitch as to why he was banned, telling Esports News UK it was ‘pretty bizarre’.
“I received a very vague reason without any clip or context,” he said on Twitter, as shown below.
“I’ve been on Twitch for over ten years, it’s been pretty much my life and one of the only things I’ve enjoyed doing since then.”
However he remained positive, thanking the community and his followers for their support.
Two weeks is of course not a long time in the grand scheme of things and we’re sure Tommey will be able to pick up where he left off after the temporary Twitch ban is lifted.
Twitch historically does not speak publicly about bans handed to streamers. Hugely popular streamer Dr Disrespect was famously banned from Twitch last year and it hasn’t been fully clear why this happened.
Tommey has had a long CoD career, having played for many orgs over the years, from Dignitas to Vitality, Millenium, Fnatic and more.
He has more than 150,000 followers on Twitter and has been one of the most well-known Call of Duty players hailing from the UK.
Tommey is signed to US org 100 Thieves as a content creator, but the UK’s own Call of Duty League side is of course London Royal Ravens. The Ravens’ homestand event was one of the last major esports events in the UK before the lockdowns began.
