Twitch streamer Dantes (also known as Doaenel) drew over 20,000 viewers during his Race to Challenger stream, asking if they could pair him with his “21st app”.

Dantes is one of the fastest growing streamers not only within League of Legends, but on Twitch. Its Race to Challenger event saw it broadcast for over 50 hours over 3 days, with viewership capped at around 23,000.

Even in his normal streams, Dantes averages 4-5,000 viewers. He is one of the biggest streamers in League of Legends, and yet he cannot be approved as a partner.

While there are a number of reasons why he may be denied, people are beginning to wonder why Twitch won’t grant him coveted partner status.

Dantes turned down partnership with Twitch despite 20,000 viewers

Although he has quite a large fan base, Dantès is no stranger to controversy. He was banned from Twitch for having Doaenel as his previous username, with Twitch reporting it as “inappropriate”.

He also had bans and restrictions on his accounts in League of Legends for in-game and out-of-game conduct, and regularly traded accounts. That didn’t stop him from repeatedly closing in on the top of the League of Legends ranking ladder.

As the streamer comes back from his previous Twitch ban with a vengeance and nears the top of one of Twitch’s biggest games, people are starting to wonder why he still can’t get partner status.

He’s been applying for a Twitch partner for years. Speculation is rife as to why he can’t get his hands on a partnership with the streaming platform, with two main theories.

The first is that because his original account was banned, Twitch isn’t too keen on associating him with his replacement account. The second is that Twitch does not associate it based on the content of its stream and its in-game prohibitions.

While Dantes doesn’t do anything in streaming that violates Twitch’s terms of service, he’s had his fair share of controversial momentsmany of which helped make him the popular streamer he is today.

Dantes has yet to be linked as of this writing, but he’s managed to reach the top of the League of Legends ranked ladder and take the top spot after days of playing and streaming. Even though he was stripped of first place minutes before the end of his challenger race.
