Now let me start, I am NOT banned from Twitch. But I could have got into some water, for being pretty careless on my part. Let me explain.
So right now, there is a "Technical Test" going on for the upcoming Rainbow Six Siege Beta. The beta actually starts on the 24th of this month. These technical tests are kind of like a beta for the beta.
Ubisoft was kind enough to send me an invite code this weekend, so I looked forward to trying it out. I got all ready to stream it on Twitch, and even went Live. Immediately I had 3 viewers, 2 of which were brand new to my channel.
I was then immediately informed that channels were getting banned for streaming the Technical Tests, and that it would be in my best interest not to play that game. So I switched over to Advanced Warfare, and streamed for a bit, but with no viewers. Nevermind the fact that when I checked Twitch before the stream, there were roughly 423 people viewing the game altogether on Twitch.
After the stream, I took to the Ubisoft forums and confirmed that there is a block in place for all footage of Rainbow Six Siege, until the beta starts on the 24th.
So, let this be a lesson to my fellow streamers or Youtubers. Make sure the betas you broadcast are in fact legal. If you don't know, reach out to the developers on Twitter or check the forums. You don't want to put in a ton of work on your channel, and have it all gone in an instant, just for being wreckless.
If you want to see the stream I went ahead with, and hear me go into more detail about this, the Twitch REWIND is below. Thanks everyone.
