Popular YouTuber and streamer Corinna Kopf has announced her move to Facebook Gaming, following an unexpected ban from Twitch over a year-old clip.

Kopf revealed the news on December 27 after teasing a potential platform switch the day prior in a cryptic Tweet, which claimed she had been “looking further” into other websites.

Now, she has joined the likes of former Twitch star “Disguised Toast” on Facebook’s streaming service, explaining that the company’s platform allows her to make a “positive” change in the gaming sphere.

“Most of you know gaming has become a huge part of my life over the last year,” Kopf wrote of her signage to Facebook. “As a female gamer, it’s so important for me to find a home that not only empowers myself, but also all of you, in order to make a positive impact in the gaming world.”

The streamer went on to thank her fans for their continued support during her switch, which marks yet another major face that has left Twitch for presumably greener pastures.

Kopf’s move to Facebook Gaming follows her public outrage against Twitch in early December, after she was unexpectedly banned due to a clip that was “well over” a year old during her 2019 birthday broadcast.

The clip in question featured Kopf adjusting a lace bra that she wore beneath a plaid button-up shirt — presumably the reason for her ban, and not the Chanel tank top she sported during her birthday stream.

“If we’re banning people for year-old clips, then I’ll start making my list right now,” she said of her suspension, going on to compare the incident to the scandal surrounding streamer Alinity Divine and her host of pet-related controversies.

While Kopf has made no mention of her ban in regards to her switch to Facebook Gaming, she isn’t the first streamer to join the platform in recent days: as previously mentioned, Disguised Toast likewise joined Facebook’s ranks in late November, similarly citing the platform’s positive impact on the community.

FacebookDisguised Toast joined Facebook Gaming a month prior to Kopf’s signage with the platform.

With Twitch signing major deals with streamers like TimTheTatMan and CouRage, there’s no telling what huge shift will come in the streaming space as the New Year approaches.

Fortnite players know all too well what it’s like to land in a hot spot and struggle to find a weapon, including TimTheTatMan, who hilariously rage quit after he found nothing but fishing rods.

Tim ‘TimTheTatman’ Betar has jumped back on the Fortnite bandwagon in Season 5. The latest update has brought a lot of old stars back, and for the most part, the reception has been positive.

In Tim’s case though, it hasn’t been all sunshine and roses. He wanted to enjoy everything the new season has to offer. Instead, all he got was fishing rods and lots of them.

TimTheTatman is a talented gamer in his own right, but he’s also hilarious to watch.

TimTheTatman descended onto Salty Towers with his squad, looking for an ideal place to land. Unfortunately, the two vacant rooftops he saw both had fishing rods. “Oh good, a fishing pole, oh good, another fishing pole, okay,”  he said.

He decided to land on a house instead. “If I come in here and there’s a fishing pole, I’m leaving,” he said while breaking into the attic with his pickaxe. “I’m literally not kidding. I’m backing out if there’s a fishing pole in here.”

Fortunately, there wasn’t one in the attic, but there was nothing else either, so he dove a little deeper. He dropped down the staircase, turned left it into the kitchen, and hilariously found another fishing rod staring into his soul.

It’s not ideal to find a fishing rod as your first weapon in Fortnite.

Without saying a word, TimTheTatman opened up the menu, quit the game, and placed his hands on his head in disbelief. “I’m not doing it,” he said, as he struggled to find the words to sum up his rage.

“The two guns I was going to land on [were] fishing poles,” he added. “I open up a door and go left, fishing pole. I’ll try again. When you guys are done, I’ll be ready to go again. I’m not going to play that game. I’m not going to do it.”

There’s nothing worse than landing in a spot surrounded by enemies and finding nothing useful.

Still, TimTheTatman’s fans were rolling on the floor laughing after seeing him get so riled up about it. Plus, the fact it happened to be a fishing rod made it even funnier.
