Twitch Rivals reportedly disqualifies ZLaner from Warzone tournament over Dr Disrespect cosplay

ZLaner has been one of the few fastest growing Warzone streamers of late, in part thanks to his collaborations with Dr Disrespect, who we all know is banned from Twitch like Voldemort is from Hogwarts.

On July 20, before the $75,000 Warzone Twitch Rivals tournament got started, ZLaner had revealed on Twitter that he was told by the streaming site he was “not eligible for Twitch Rivals.”

Dexerto says “There were all kinds of rumors flying around as to the reason why ZLaner was barred, including his affiliation with Dr Disrespect. Some Twitch staff even said it was because he wasn’t a Twitch partner, but seeing as how he’s an affiliate with the site, that explanation might not make sense.

Esports journalist Jake Lucky tweeted that the alleged reason for the ban was none other than ZLaner’s Dr Disrespect cosplay and, just to add further fuel to the rumor, the streamer himself even liked the tweet.”

Would Twitch really shut down ZLaner just because he streams with the Two Time though? Doc didn’t say anything himself, but like any good friend he did retweet Lane’s image of him in cosplay to make it clear he’s got his duo’s back.

ZLaner said recently that he wasn’t even considering an option to stream exclusively only with Twitch, because he wouldn’t be able to stream with his friend Doc anymore. Whether that had any bearing on the site’s July 20 decision is unknown as well, but at this point there doesn’t seem to be a concrete answer for why he was DQ’d.

“This is still a developing story, and Dexerto has reached out to both ZLaner and Twitch for comment, and if either knows the exact reason he can’t compete. As soon as we have more info we’ll update this article, so check back soon.”

xQc explains why he now “hates” doing collab streams with other Twitch stars

Dexerto says “xQc has always been a lone wolf in many ways. Generally, he likes to stream on his own rather than collaborating with other streamers. And when he does collaborate with them, it leads to drama more often than not. For example, he clashed with streamers like Pokelawls and Myth on the OfflineTV Rust server before quitting. Then, when he moved onto GTA RP, he got banned multiple times following clashes with other streamers like MOONMOON before moving on. Heck, he even rage-quit from a Monopoly game. But interestingly enough, butting heads with other streamers isn’t the reason why he’s now “done” with collaborations. It turns out that something else bothers him much
