Fans will be long familiar with PewDiePie’s antics in various titles from horror games to battle royales, but it seems like he needs to bootcamp a bit to get on the level of his newfound Minecraft partner.
Charles recently dove into the gaming grind as KEEMSTAR’s Minecraft Mondays was ramping up. Even though the two YouTubers’ first foray in the Minecraft servers had its bumps, Charles came back firing in their latest teamup.
Charles is the internet's new favorite try-hard
In a July 17 video, PewDiePie and Charles were looking to get the better of the Minecraft Monday competition but in a surprise twist it was the makeup mogul who came to play and lay down the hurt in the servers.
Throughout the entire ordeal PewDiePie kind of took a back seat during the various matches as Charles looked like a completely different gamer from his first time playing in Minecraft Monday.
The 20-year-old YouTuber was shotcalling, being active on comms, distributing loot with PewDiePie, finding the best ways to go on the offensive, kiting opponents away from his low-health duo, and even trash talking the enemy — as well as his teammate, at times.
Charles had avenged a recently killed PewDiePie when the sister added salt to the wound jokingly saying “you suck” to his dead teammate and later noting some of Pewd’s “noob mistakes.”
“James Charles said I suck at mincecraft,” PewDiePie said in a defeated voice. “This is the worst day of my life.”
But it was all in good fun as Charles was really getting in the groove of the games, later saying: “I think I’m the best Minecraft player there ever was.”

In fact, it was even more impressive to see Charles fragging out while PewDiePie was dead and waiting for his dominating squad-mate to leave the game to queue up again.
Charles has come a long way in just a little over a month from when his Minecraft adventures began, and PewDiePie might have to start stepping up his game just to keep up with his duo partner.
