Battlestate Games have recently announced their Twitch Drop  event for Escape from Tarkov and as the hype and excitement were increasing, the most unexpected thing happens.

This went against Twitch's privacy policy and it resulted in the official Battlestate Games Twitch channel getting temporarily banned.

The act was labelled as ‘self-destructive behaviour’ in the Twitch Community Guidelines, and the official ruling stated that “Any activity that may endanger your life or lead to your physical harm is prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to: suicide threats”.
