After a week long ban from Twitch, Daniel “dafran” Francesca confirmed his strategy to not run into any more trouble on the platform going forward.

The popular streamer and former Overwatch League star was hit with a 30-day suspension on November 13.  The streamer said the temporary ban was because of his “ignorance” and saying “stupid sh*t all the time.”

The Atlanta Reign streamer claimed a few days after it happened that the “last reformation of dafran has begun.”

Dafran revealed on November 22 that his suspension had been lifted early, and promised to start a brand new chapter upon his return to Twitch.

Has dafran 3.0 arrived?

The streamer shared the news he would be back streaming early on Twitter, and promised to become “SEAGULL V2.”

“I will become a flower. This time, I will for real become SEAGULL V2,” dafran wrote on Twitter. “I will sprout into a beautiful soul.”

Even though he apparently got unbanned on November 22, the streamer said his first stream back would be a day later on Nov 23.

“Day 1 of perfection begins tomorrow,” dafran continued. “The role model you all wanted is coming.”

Fellow Overwatch streamer and former OWL pro Brandon ‘Seagull’ Larned seemed excited he could serve as an inspiration to his friend upon his return.

“PMA (positive mental attitude) DAFRAN?” the former Dallas Fuel player posted in response to the streamer’s return.

Will dafran be coming back to Overwatch?

Even though we don’t know for sure how long dafran will stick to his new “family-friendly” streaming strategy, he has said he plans to hop right back into Ovewatch and the new PTR patch.

The patch’s nerfs to the current double shield meta have a lot of people, including dafran, excited about the changes.

Even if the patch doesn’t have the massive effects most people are hoping for, dafran fans and Overwatch fans will be glad to have the streamer back on Twitch.

New Twitch streamer NickCKelly got emotional on stream when he got his first viewers after waiting for nearly an hour, gaining thousands as followers as a result of his wholesome reaction.

2020 was a booming year for Twitch, with top creators like xQc and Valkyrae achieving huge numbers in terms of followers and views, and several gaming trends surging in popularity at various points in the year, meaning success all around.

With these huge creators out here smashing records, it’s easy to forget that many are only just starting out their venture into streaming, both casually and seriously.

This year has no doubt prompted more people than ever before to give streaming a try, but it’s not as easy as it might seem from the outside – especially if you’re starting from zero.

2020 helped Twitch do massive numbers all round.

NickCKelly was one such individual who wanted to give streaming a go, and he couldn’t have been more grateful when he eventually got his first viewers after a while on stream by himself.

He had been streaming for almost an hour when he noticed that some viewers had joined his previously empty chat, and he looked stunned.

“I have my first viewer, hi!” Nick said, looking taken aback by the sudden appearance. “Wow, this is amazing. I’m genuinely honored to have you in my stream, you’re my first viewer that I’ve had, I’ve been streaming for 48 minutes.”

“I feel like I’m gonna cry, man,” he said with the most wholesome reaction possible, tearing up as he spoke to his new viewers.

Over on Reddit, user Avoxio who found Nick’s stream explained why they entered his empty stream. “Me and some friends were scrolling through twitch and found this guy. His stream title got us intrigued so we decided to stop by.”

They also said “at first we thought he was trolling so we messed around a bit not thinking anything of it, throughout our conversation we realized that he was being genuine,” and said they decided to share his stream in hopes of getting him recognition.

Nick also responded in the comments: “I will not let you all down. I want to prove to people that there is goodness in the world, and that we are capable of so much more than most think. I think there’s so much pain and suffering in the world right now. Helping even a single person is making a difference in the world.”

The unexpected reaction from the small streamer certainly seemed to strike a chord with some viewers, and Nick has now shot up to 4.7 thousand followers at the time of writing.
