Destiny Banned from Twitch

Introduction: Destiny is a popular first person shooter game that has been banned from streaming on Twitch.

Destiny, a popular first person shooter game, has been banned from streaming on Twitch.
The game was banned on the grounds that it is a “non-gaming” title.
This decision was made by Twitch in an effort to provide more variety for their viewers.
The game’s publisher, Activision, has responded to the ban by stating that they are “disappointed” in the decision and feel that it is unfair.
Destiny is one of the most popular games on Twitch and its removal will undoubtedly have a significant impact on viewership numbers.


What led to the ban?

Destiny was banned from Twitch for allegedly using a software program that streams video footage of the game to other players.
The program, known as “Twitch stream bots” or “Twitch viewers,” artificially increases the viewership of a stream by automatically refreshing the page. This resulted in Destiny being banned from Twitch for violating their terms of service which prohibit the use of automated programs to increase viewership.


The reaction from the Destiny community

Destiny was banned from Twitch on Thursday, much to the dismay of the game’s community.
The decision came after Activision Blizzard announced they were partnering with Facebook to create a streaming service called “Facebook Gaming.” This new platform will allow users to stream games directly to Facebook,
competing with Twitch.

Many Destiny players were already unhappy with Activision Blizzard’s decision to split up their gaming communities between and Facebook.
Now, with Twitch being banned from broadcasting Destiny content, many feel that their voices are not being heard.
Some have even threatened to boycott Activision Blizzard products in protest.

Others argue that this is simply a way for Activision Blizzard to force players onto their new platform.
They believe that if people want to continue streaming Destiny content, they will be forced to use Facebook Gaming,
which will give the company more data on its users.


The impact of the Twitch ban

Since the popular game Destiny was banned from Twitch, many players have taken to other streaming platforms,
such as YouTube and Hitbox.
The game has been a mainstay on Twitch since it was released in 2014,
but was removed on February 3rd, 2016 for unknown reasons.
This move has had a large impact on the gaming community, as Destiny is one of the most streamed games on the platform.

Many viewers and streamers are unhappy with the decision, and some have even started petitions to get the game reinstated on Twitch.
The ban has also caused some players to switch to other games, such as Call of Duty: Black Ops III and Halo 5: Guardians. While it is unclear why Bungie’s latest title was banned from Twitch,
it is likely that the company will seek to resolve the issue as soon as possible.


Conclusion: The future of Destiny streaming on Twitch

There has been a lot of discussion around Twitch and Destiny lately.
After it was announced that Bungie was partnering with Activision, many people believed that this would mean the end of streaming Destiny on Twitch.
This week it was confirmed that Destiny will no longer be streamed on Twitch.

The reason for this is still unknown, but many people are speculating that it has to do with the new partnership between Bungie and Activision.
It’s possible that Activision doesn’t want their game to be streamed on a competitor’s platform.

Others are speculating that this is just a test run and that Destiny will eventually be back on Twitch.
Only time will tell what the future holds for streaming Destiny on Twitch.
