The streamer complains that the player is harassing them and they or their viewers get jagex to ban them on the spot. I also wonder if this happens if the streamer is killing a boss and a random person crashes them and doesn't know who they are.
Where and how does somebody "skill" near a streamer if he is killing a boss?
If the streamer is killing a boss in a bossing zone, obviously the "skiller" has no reason to alch or do a emote around him.
Suppose somebody is streaming a Nex mass and some players just alch or make funny emotes without attacking the boss, sure, the skillers are disrupting the normal game play and therefore violating the game rules and are subjected to be banned.
As I mentioned in another thread, Blizzard banned a lot of this kind of Overwatch "skillers" for the same game disruption reason.
ToP BaSSsaid: Is this one of those made up shit stirring myths that is aspiring to become legendary fact?
Something very similar did happen with an OSRS streamer a very long time ago, people on Reddit in particular were furious about it. Nowadays though people have largely forgotten about it, and on the occasion that someone brings it up, most people just treat it as a funny meme.
I guess OP is talking about RS3 streamers though, and I don't know about them.
Streamers will always be favoured. Theres no getting around it.
Like really, If a high profile streamer got banned they can just tell their fanbase to throw a shitstorm on reddit or twitter and the Jmods WILL look in to it a 2nd or 3rd time. Yougotlittup is a perfect example of that.Add meh
