An 11-year-old VALORANT player was recently banned from Twitch despite having parental supervision.
Lucas is a Brazilian VALORANT Twitch streamer. At the age of only 11 years, he reached Radiant rank, the highest in VALORANT. He streams VALORANT under parental supervision. But, unfortunately, He was recently banned from Twitch for being underage.
According to Twitch’s policy, all streamers on the platform must be at least 13 years old. Persons under 13 years of age cannot stream on Twitch, even with parental supervision. This policy is what got Lucas banned from the streaming platform, as he did not meet the age requirement.
After the ban, many in the Twitch community came to Luca’s defense, while others think that the ban is fair as Twitch’s policy clearly states the minimum age to stream.
Jake Lucky on Twitter reported on the situation regarding the Brazilian VALORANT streamer Lucas. He wrote in his Tweet,
“This is Lucas, a Brazilian Valorant streamer who reached Radiant at just 11 years old
He has been banned on Twitch for his age, although he streams with parental supervision. Much of the community has jumped to his defense, while others argue Twitch’s ban is fair”
Jake also posted a picture of Twitch’s policy regarding Children on twitch which reads,
“In order to register for a Twitch account, you must be at least 13 years of age.”
Many viewers think that with adult supervision, young talent should be allowed to blossom on Twitch even if they are younger than 13.
