UK League of Legends streamer Gross Gore hit by Twitch ban following Fnatic and Krepo allegations

Popular UK League of Legends streamer Ali "Gross Gore" Larsen (pictured) has been permanently banned by streaming service Twitch.

He discovered the ban in the early hours of Wednesday morning and expressed his shock to viewers on Snapchat.

Gross Gore apparently posted the following after discovering he had banned, prompting a fan to call the police to check on his safety amidst fears he may be considering taking his own life.

Gross Gore was admitted to hospital, where he was seen by a psychiatrist, and later he was allowed to leave. He stayed at his sister's house where he slept and recovered.

The streamer posted on Facebook: "I want to apologise deeply to everyone who I have ever hurt or made look bad. I was naive and this was the biggest mistake of my life.

"As many of you may know, I'm very open with anything and everything, and I'm not afraid to speak my mind. This has branded me with the 'drama' label which I can see exactly what people now mean, and why others choose to stay away from me.

"I don't want to be this person anymore, i'm not going to be this person anymore, and I want to change the way I am by respecting others and their privacy. After recent events this has already gave me a valuable life lesson. I'll prove to everyone that I can change, and will change for the best."

Gross Gore has since said he won't be moving to another streaming platform for the time being; it looks like he will be taking time out to think about his future.

Why was Gross Gore banned by Twitch?

While it's not confirmed why Twitch banned Gross Gore, the ban comes after the popular streamer made several damning accusations against members of Fnatic and caster Mitch "Krepo" Voorspoels.

Gross Gore took to Twitch earlier this week to talk about his experiences during the EU LCS Spring Split finals in Rotterdam on the weekend.

These allegations prompted the 'third strike' from Twitch. In the past he was apparently warned after posting a user’s email address on his stream, and for his behaviour around the drama between him and streamer Raihnbowkidz.

Firstly, his allegations against Fnatic.

He claims that Fnatic's pro League of Legends player Febiven got with a woman that Gross Gore invited to come along to Rotterdam with him. He says that he paid for her travel expenses, and that, to cut a long story short, she rejected him and instead kissed Fabian "Febiven" Diepstraten.

He also claims that another girl, who travelled to Rotterdam with him and his manager Ryan, slept with Febiven, Martin "Rekkles" Larsson and a third girl in a room together.

Gross Gore didn't name the girls, but cosplayer Kelly Jean has since mentioned the incident on Twitter and denied it:

Two other women said they have been banned from Gross Gore's stream, but that gives no indication as to exactly who the women are that accompanied him and his manager to Rotterdam.

Accusations were also thrown around claiming Fnatic support player Johan "Klaj" Olsson 'cheated on his girlfriend' in Rotterdam. He has since responded on Twitter.

Gross Gore had previously built up a friendship with Febiven, having played with him on stream in the past. He says their friendship is 'now gone' and that Febiven was ignoring his messages and lying to him at the event over text message.

Larsen also says that pro players and people in the scene - including xPeke - noticed him at the event but ignored him. He went on to say that someone pulled him aside after the event and said that pros don't like him, because they see him 'as drama'.

Secondly, the Krepo allegation.

Gross Gore made another allegation, this time against Mitch "Krepo" Voorspoels, who works as a caster and analyst for the EU LCS broadcast team.

He claimed that Krepo was "talking sh*t" about him to other people and spreading false rumours about him.

You can see a snippet from Gross Gore's rant here, where he mentions Krepo.

Following this, Krepo received abuse and name-calling on his own Twitch stream.

He denied the allegations - and took the time to have a dig at Gross Gore.

Krepo said on stream: "Don't believe everything people say, especially when their reputation is based on controversy.

"I've had Gross Gore try and sh*t-talk me for like six months now. Every time I ignore it, he just brings something worse.

"It's not completely unexpected from someone like him. A week before Rotterdam he was calling me a fat c*nt trying to get a reaction out of me. I just legit don't give a sh*t about him, so I don't care."

Krepo later posted on Twitter:

The full video from Gross Gore featuring his comments has since been deleted.

Gross Gore has since published one last video on YouTube, where he admits he was in the wrong and attempts to restore Krepo's reputation.

Gross Gore is no stranger to drama. Last year during the League of Legends World Championship, he accused Riot Games of kicking him out of the Wembley Hilton Hotel.

Fnatic hasn't responded to eSports News UK's request for comment.
