Popular Twitch streamer Richard ‘KingRichard’ Nelson is seemingly still locked into his feud with graphic designer Gabe ‘G4K Motion Designer’ – adding anyone else who comments on the beef into the mix.

What happened between KingRichard and G4K?

The NRG Esports player and streamer had his controversy over reportedly not paying his graphic designer thrust into the public spotlight at the beginning of April, when the team released a video, that has since been deleted. 

KingRichard responded to, and strongly denied, the matter on his stream, becoming emotional when referred to as a “scammer.” Nelson also admitted to being burnt out and not wanting to stream because of it all. 

However, it seems that despite apparent private talks with G4K about resolving the situation, KingRichard is still tetchy about the situation being brought up.

Twitter: TeamEnvyKingRichard formerly played Fortnite for Team Envy – where he competed in the Fortnite Pro/Am event.

What did KingRichard tweet?

On April 11, the popular streamer put a call out to his Twitter followers to see who would be attending TwitchCon Europe in Berlin – seemingly gauging responses as to who he may run into while in Germany.  

One user responded that they would be attending and also bringing KingRichard’s graphic designer with them, seemingly poking fun at the tense situation. In a now-deleted tweet, the popular streamer fired back with: “Bring a pair of boxing gloves as well,” seemingly wanting to step into the ring with G4K.

While the graphic designer stated that he and KingRichard were going to solve their problems privately and that the ‘peaceful way’ was the best case scenario, it seems like the streamer is still pretty combative about the whole thing.

KingRichard’s original tweet about TwitchCon Europe still remains on his profile, with replies flooding in following his deleted post – all poking fun at what he had written. 

If posts on Twitter are anything to go off, it seems like a lot of attendees will be bringing KingRichard’s graphic designer with them, so he may need more than one pair of gloves just in case they’ve all discovered the secret behind cloning technology.

In her second Twitch stream, AOC hilariously explained how experiencing Elo Hell in League of Legends helped her develop the patience required for being a congresswoman.

U.S. Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, affectionally known as AOC, has been open about how much she loves League of Legends in the past. The proud politician even stunned her fans and followers when she revealed she finally made Silver IV.

It might have been her first foray into the minds and hearts of gamers around the world, but it certainly wasn’t the last. In October, AOC made history when hundreds of thousands of viewers tuned in to watch her play Among Us on Twitch for the very first time.

AOC was so well-loved among streamers and viewers, they begged her to come back for a second stream. It finally happened on November 27, and it was as wholesome and entertaining as the first.

AOC’s first ever Among Us stream on Twitch was a smash hit.

At one point during the stream, Ryan ‘Northernlion’ Letourneau asked AOC an interesting question about her League of Legends experience and her response was both understandable and hilarious.

“Do you think having to keep your cool in League of Legends chat has helped your political career when it comes to maintaining some decorum in Congress?” asked Northernlion.

“Yeah, I think so,” said AOC. “Getting caught in Elo Hell really requires so much patience. I was playing with 12-year-olds… rage quitting five minutes into a game… so it really builds your patience.”

Elo Hell is a term used to describe situations where players and their rankings are dragged down due to incompetent and toxic teammates. It’s something League of Legends players know all too well, including AOC.

AOC has always managed to come across as down-to-earth. Still, it’s comforting and kind of funny to hear an esteemed congresswoman talk about something so relatable, especially to gamers.

Elo Hell in League of Legends is the absolute pits, but at least we now know it counts for something.
