Former Sentinels Valorant star Hunter ‘SicK’ Mimms has recently faced a two-week ban on Twitch, leading him to consider legal action against the platform. SicK has wasted no time and has already started streaming on Kick, while expressing his dissatisfaction with Twitch’s decision. Let’s delve into the details surrounding this controversy and explore SicK’s journey from CS:GO to Valorant and his recent tumultuous experiences.
SicK’s Rise in the Gaming Scene
SicK began his professional gaming career in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) in 2015. Despite a few years of honing his skills, he initially struggled to establish himself on the international stage. After playing for teams like Misfits, Rogue, and Complexity, he found himself in a somewhat uncertain position while competing for Chaos.
With the emergence of Valorant as a competitive gaming option, many CS:GO professionals decided to explore this new frontier. SicK made the leap to Valorant in mid-2020 and joined the renowned Sentinels squad, where he has been a part of for the past three years. However, due to mental health concerns, SicK took a break from active play and has been serving as a substitute player.
The Twitch Ban
Unfortunately, SicK has recently experienced a series of challenges. On March 4, he was arrested and charged with criminal trespassing following an altercation at a Ferrari dealership, leading to a brief period of incarceration. Additionally, Twitch has imposed bans on him for what his former teammates have described as “erratic” behavior.
Once again, SicK finds himself on the receiving end of a Twitch ban, this time for a duration of two weeks. Expressing his frustration, he took to Twitter on May 23 to voice his concerns and threatened Twitch with legal action if the situation persists. SicK claims that he is unaware of any wrongdoing on his part and demands Twitch’s assistance in resolving the issue.
In the interim, SicK has opted to stream on the Stake-backed Kick platform, initially as an alternative to Twitch. However, if his ban on Twitch is not rectified, he intends to remain on Kick. The outcome of this situation remains uncertain, and it remains to be seen how Twitch will respond to SicK’s grievances.
