League of Legends streamer Dantes, known as Doaenel in the gaming world, has been asked not to attend the upcoming Streamer Awards due to complaints about his presence at the event. Despite being nominated for the Best League of Legends Streamer of the Year award, he announced on stream that he will not be attending the ceremony.

This news has caused quite a stir in the gaming community, with many people speculating about the reasons behind the decision. Dantes has a controversial past, with allegations of harassment towards Offline TV member Yvonnie in 2020. Some people believe this incident led to his exclusion from the awards ceremony.

The Streamer Awards, founded by Twitch streamer QTCinderella, recognizes and celebrates the biggest content creators in the industry. What sets this show apart from others is that 70% weightage is given to public votes while determining the winners from each category. Dantes was one of the four top streamers nominated for the League of Legends category.

In a recent stream, Dantes revealed that someone associated with the event had privately contacted him and divulged that they were receiving complaints due to his nomination. The same person apparently asked him not to attend lest it offends more people. Dantes, while disappointed, remained optimistic and stated that there’s always next year.

The news has sparked a heated debate on social media, with some people expressing their support for Dantes and others criticising his past behaviour. The Streamer Awards will be hosted by Valkyrae, HasanAbi, Ludwig, SweetAnita, and Squeex on March 11, and voting for all the categories will be open on the official website until then.

Despite the controversy, the Streamer Awards promises to be an exciting event, celebrating the best and brightest in the world of online content creation.
