But what is stream sniping?

Stream sniping is a practice that consists of spying on your opponent’s stream, which is broadcasting live, in order to gain an advantage over him and thus be able to defeat him. This practice allows you to know the location of your opponent or their level of life, information that is crucial in any game.

The situation has been exposed by the same official account of Twitch Rivals on Twitter, which have been reviewing the tournament, agreeing that the aforementioned participants “They broke the code of conduct and the rules of the game”. The platform shows its disappointment with the players: “We always expect all of our participants to show sportsmanship and respect for others”.

Something that has brought him a lot of criticism since it is the fourth time that this user has been blocked from the platform.
