OpTic Gaming’s Jack “CouRage” Dunlop clapped back hilariously when eUnited posted a clip of their Fortnite players taking him out, mocking their Call of Duty and Fortnite teams wins.

CouRage and eUnited are of course familiar thanks to his time in Call of Duty as a caster, and his own dad is said to be big fans of the North American organization.

CouRage was playing in a duo scrim alongside Cloud9’s ‘Hysteria’ when he came up against eUnited Fortnite players ‘Amaize’ and ‘Ashton’, who took them out with ease.

eUnited posted the clip to Twitter saying they would ask their players to ‘take it easy’ on CouRage next time.

But CouRage was ready with the quick rebuttal, first saying he was better than both eUnited’s CoD and Fortnite teams, to which eUnited responded saying only as a caster.

But CouRage wasn’t done there, as he pointed out eUnited’s CoD teams lack of championships in the WWII season, as well as the earnings of their Fortnite roster.

He is referring to the exhibition match played for CoD: WWII at the start of the season, which he played and won alongside professional players Jordan “JKap” Kaplan, Dave “Dqvee” Davies and Thomas “Tommey” Trewren. 

He actually beat Justin “SiLLY” Fargo at the event, who was an eUnited player at the time.

While CouRage has made some cash from playing Fortnite through the Summer Skirmish, but his biggest “winnings” actually came through a $70,000 donation from YouTuber Mr. Beast, promised to him if he won a solo game.

For eUnited’s Fortnite roster, the future is certainly bright, with the Summer Skirmish still on-going as well as the upcoming ‘Fortnite World Cup’, which is expected to boast the majority of the $100 million planned prize pool from Epic Games.

As for eUnited’s CoD team, they only have one event left to get a LAN victory under their belts in the WWII season, and it’s the big one – the CWL Championship.

On October 26, Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg responded to a glitch that omitted his YouTube channel from searches a few days before. The bug sparked widespread speculation that he had been “shadowbanned” by Google.

The YouTube community was rocked on October 19 when rumors began to spread that the platform’s largest content creator, PewDiePie, had been shadowbanned. However, it was quickly clarified to be a bug and his account was fixed.

The Swede addressed the drama in his first video back since the glitch. While the star believed that people were too quick to jump to conclusions about him being banned, he did have questions for Google as to why his channel was the only one affected.

Fans of the personality became concerned on October 19 when his channel disappeared from searches on YouTube. His latest video tanked in views as no one could see it without a direct link. Google then released a statement and said it was an error before fixing his channel hours later.

Responding to the incident, Pewds revealed that he didn’t think he was shadowbanned as his account had been having issues for days. “People started noticing my video wasn’t getting any views. And it just went everywhere. There was a bunch of news for it!” he said, before he joked, “Shadow ban! They creep from the shadows and they ban you!”

Despite not being overly concerned, Kjellberg did find it peculiar that it mainly impacted his channel and nobody else’s. “I didn’t think they shadowbanned me, I just assumed it was a glitch. But it begs the question, how does that happen? How did it happen? It didn’t happen to anyone else. I asked around.”

The popular entertainer later joked about YouTube trying to explain the glitch, after reacting to a fan submission on Reddit. “We shadowbanned our biggest creator! Yeah, yeah it was weird. It was weird, what in the world,” he said.

To add salt to the wound, Pewds celebrated his birthday on October 24, but instead of well wishes from fans, his subreddit was flooded with users concerned that he had been shadowbanned by Google. It should also be stated there is no confirmation that the company even does bans in this manner.

At the time of writing, the star’s account is back to normal, and his uploads are getting millions of views again. If nothing else, the incident shows just how many people love the 31-year-old entertainer. Viewers were quick to rally together for the content creator – further proof that Kjellberg is the king of the platform.
