Dafran announced his return to the streaming platform on September 11, filling fans in on when he will next go live. Some thought he had quit forever, based on past comments.

Thousands of fans have been waiting in anticipation for a closer look at his life transformation, but for all we know right now, it could genuinely be the game Farming Simulator that he’s playing.

When is Dafran coming back to Twitch?

No matter what he has in store, the streamer will be hitting screens with a new broadcast between September 11-13, according to a post on Twitter.

He tweeted: “Farming simulator stream this weekend probably. Turn on notifications if you don’t wanna miss it on Twitch. Happy Friday boys.”

A nice Friday surprise for his followers, coupled with the viral “turn up mufasa” meme video. Now, the wait begins.

It remains to be seen if the streamer is going to be pulling out a real tractor or just rolling around in one in-game, for now. Either way, it should be good fun.

Those wanting to watch him live have been urged to turn notifications on for his channel, with no start time confirmed.

This is also a big boost for Twitch viewers as well, following on from the news that Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins has signed an exclusive contract to stream there again. More and more options are opening up to those wanting to tune into streamers online, with summit1g, TimTheTatman, and others still going live regularly on Twitch alone.

One thing is for sure: Dafran’s stream is long-awaited, and thousands will likely want to be part of the action.

Popular Twitch star Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel lost it after achieving an incredible Minecraft speedrun time. The former Overwatch pro hilariously called out fellow streamer Sebastian ‘Forsen’ Fors, and challenged him to beat his record.

For many, xQc has become the face of Twitch over the last two years. The former Overwatch pro is one of the most followed channels on the platform, and consistently pulls in 30-40k viewers each time he goes live.

During his October 13 broadcast, the Canadian exploded in excitement after setting a new personal record when beating Minecraft. Celebrating, the 24-year-old called out Forsen and dared him to pass his speedrun time.

xQc challenges Forsen to beat his Minecraft speedrun time

Despite releasing over a decade ago, Minecraft continues to be one of the most popular games on Twitch. In 2020, streamers like xQc have been trying to beat the game in record time in front of viewers.

After months of previous attempts – some that ended in disaster – the stars finally aligned for Lengyel on October 13 when he managed to complete the title incredibly fast.

Using the Nether bed trick to slay the Ender Dragon quickly, the former Overwatch pro was able to take down the final boss and achieve a speedrun record of just 33 minutes. “Holy s**t!” he screamed as beast died.

Elated, the star exploded in celebration over his new time. “33! Beat that s**t!” He then hilariously called out Forsen who has also been speedrunning Minecraft. “Beat it, Forsen! Beat it! 33:49! Nearly sub-30!” he said, slamming his fists on the desk.

xQc challenged the fellow Twitch personality to attempt to beat his record. “Beat that, baby! Forget it. Forget variety, Forsen. It will take months to beat that s**t!  Forget the variety streams, dude.”

According to Lengyel, everything seemed to just click and fall into place during his latest Minecraft run. He was even able to achieve a “perfect” kill of the Ender Dragon using his strategy, which he had been practicing in the past month.

On October 14, Forsen responded to the challenge simply stating, “Alright. Alright. Let’s do it!” Only time will tell if the Swede will be able to match or beat xQc’s incredible 33-minute time, but the rivalry has been entertaining to say the least.
