Streamer GiantWaffle is gunning to be the new record holder for most hours streamed in a single month on Twitch and revealed his new setup to help with the challenge. 

The popular entertainer began his “Streamvember” quest on November 1, 2019 by talking about the record and how if everything goes according to plan he will have streamed for 570 hours throughout the month. 

According to GiantWaffle, he intends to stream for 19 hours a day for 30 days straight. If he can do it, he will pass Runescape player ItsArmand who streamed for 566 hours in August of 2019. 

This isn’t GiantWaffle’s first tackle with the record either. Last “Streamvember”, he streamed for over 400 hours in 30 days and has prepared to take the record over the last six months.

The streamer claimed that he is in the best position to take the record. He told his viewers that the record demands only around four hours of sleep a night – something he’s already getting. 

He added that while he’s in better shape, he’s not where he wants to be physically and it’s something he can work on the month of streaming.

In addition to playing games, getting in shape and chatting with his viewers, GiantWaffle also revealed he was spending extra money just to enhance his stream for this challenge

“This is not the full setup,” he said while transitioning his stream to show angles from his kitchen and living room with three screens not showing any input. “This is going to be what the overall setup is going to look like for most of this month – there is a lot that I need to do on this setup.” 

He then revealed he has a $2,000 worth of equipment still coming in to deal with tech issues.

A bit later on in the stream. He showcased just how quick all the cameras were and was impressed with how smooth and synched everything was. 

It’s clear that GiantWaffle is going all out to break the record. Another streamer, Johnny_Now was on track to break the record during his 30 days in a cage challenge, but a series of unfortunate incidents caused him to end his stream earlier than he wanted. 

The current record-holder, ItsArmand spent 99% of his 30 days playing Runescape.

Asmongold defends Forsen after learning the real reason for Twitch ban

Popular Twitch star ‘Asmongold’ went to bat for fellow streamer Sebastian ‘Forsen’ Fors after the Swede was banned from the platform on November 26.

At first, no one knew the real reason for Forsen’s ban, with some thinking it may have been DMCA-related. However, viewers soon discovered that for a brief moment in a recent broadcast he showed a gif of a horse in a very inappropriate scene.

Despite this, Asmongold decided to stick up for Forsen during his own broadcast and call out Twitch for banning him due to an honest mistake.

“How the f**k is that going to be TOS? If…I don’t understand. You’ve got other people and they’re going around showing Animal Planet,” he explained. “Like you see literal animals killing each other, but you see a horse’s d**k?”

To this, Asmongold makes an interesting point. There are streams on Twitch that document animals in the wild and they can get into some rather freaky situations that, while natural, aren’t exactly the kind of thing you’d show your boss.

“Listen, horses don’t wear clothes, you know that?” the streamer sarcastically stated. “So, if you look at a horse, you’re going to see their d**k. Like, that’s all there is to it. It’s weird, man.”

However, right after making this argument, the streamer learned that it wasn’t just the horse that got Forsen banned, but the girl who was in the gif with the animal that changed the whole conversation. Briefly, anyway.

“Okay, that’s a little bit different,” he confessed. “It’s a little bit more than what I thought it was.”

Despite this, Asmongold still defended Forsen for the mistake of showing the gif. “I don’t think it’s really that big of a deal. You show that for like a second, right? Cause it’s an accident.”

According to the popular World of Warcraft player, one second of footage shouldn’t determine a whole Twitch career. “That seems stupid to me,” he added. “But you know, here we are.”

Unfortunately for Forsen, the streamer says this time, his ban is indefinite and it’s unclear when, if ever, he will be unbanned.

Hopefully, with Asmongold speaking out, Twitch can agree to let this incident slide and let Fors back on the platform so he can stream again.
