Joe Rogan is the host of one of the most popular podcasts out there.

Overall, Joe is concerned with the whole situation and criticized the way it’s being handled by the Chinese government.

“Did you see that video of China where they’re spraying disinfectant in the street… its f**king bonkers, they’re driving in the street spraying everything… it’s crazy.” He began, before going more in-depth about the virus.

“We were talking with these infectious disease exports… and [they said] these viruses make themselves, happen all the time, and we can barely keep up with them. All it takes is one giant one [to do some harm].”

Finally, he went into his personal feelings about the Coronavirus and he did not seem to have high hopes. “I’m not feeling good about it, it scares me… these things can absolutely wipe out millions and millions of people before we can get a handle on it.”

So far the Coronavirus has mostly spread throughout China and the government claim they are keeping a handle on it.

Over 60,000 cases have reportedly been confirmed, with the vast majority of them being in China, a country with a population of over 1.3 billion.

Some airlines have even stopped direct flights to China as the country continues to battle the virus, although, there have not been any indications that it could be as bad Joe Rogan fears.

Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek was left in awe after Sykkuno managed to shoot him dead on the OTV Rust server, and it was safe to say he was impressed by the streamer’s aim, saying “you killed me, you’re amazing!”

The Offline TV Rust sever has been a huge talking point since the start of this year, as with the enormous host of streamers participating there are endless amounts of content for fans to consume on the daily.

The server even ended up needing to be split into two after people’s varying playstyles caused some tension and calls for a need to separate PVP-focused players and roleplay-focused players.

While it was originally released in 2013, Rust has experienced a surge in popularity thanks to the OTV server.

However, that’s not to say that there haven’t been plenty of iconic moments between streamers, as even though the game can get pretty violent, the vast range of streamer interactions has led to some great scenes for fans.

That was the case for Sykkuno fans when he managed to kill shroud, leaving everyone impressed with his skills.

While they were competing for the Oil Rig, Sykkuno managed to get shroud with his gun as he jumped, and it didn’t seem like shroud expected it at all, dying with a bewildered “no, Sykkuno!”

Sykkuno’s hand immediately flew to his mouth, laughing and apologizing for the abrupt kill.

Michael sounded equally as impressed as he did betrayed, after a few seconds of silence saying “Sykkuno you killed me, you’re amazing!” But the compliments didn’t end there, with Micheal adding, “you destroyed me!” and even “you’re the better gamer, man” to which Sykkuno replied, “no, no, most definitely not.”

Sykkuno has talked previously about how he’s a “humongous fan of shroud” in the past, so this interaction definitely proved to be a positive one for the rising streamer.

One fan on Twitter said, “Sykkuno downed shroud and even shroud is proud of him,” another saying “that Sykkuno/shroud friendly PVP was beautiful to watch… what in the wholesome rivalry.”

The PVP moment was definitely an entertaining one all round, and while the results were unexpected, no one was more impressed than shroud himself.
