YouTube stars Logan Paul and KSI are set to touch gloves in the net’s most anticipated boxing rematch in just seven days – and Paul is capitalizing on the hype with yet another documentary.

Released on November 2, Paul’s “The Maverick” film takes viewers through his Ohio childhood and past controversies, weaving a compelling tale that explains how boxing seemingly turned the YouTuber’s life around.

While Paul’s fans seem to love the soul-baring documentary, others are not as impressed with the forty-minute feature – including his rival, KSI.

KSI responded to the video in a brutal Tweet on the same day, commenting on its thumbnail photo that closely resembles Marvel’s “Thanos Snap” disintegration effect.

“Even you know you’re about to disappear,” KSI wrote of the video.

Paul clapped back at his comments in kind, writing, “Who wants to tell him it’s about last year” – pointing out the fact that KSI likely didn’t watch the documentary.

This wouldn’t be the first time the two have bandied words ahead of their rematch, either: KSI had an incredulous reaction to Paul’s “Forty Days” video hitting the number one spot on YouTube’s Trending page several days prior, despite his own video having more views.

In fact, KSI’s own video sat at second place with over 2.9 million views – a stark contrast to Paul’s 1.5 million view mark, which caused understandable confusion from the UK creator.

“How does Logan got more views than me?” KSI queried: a sentiment echoed by many fans, some of whom accused YouTube of favoritism in preparation for their upcoming bout.

Thus far, Logan’s latest documentary has yet to hit the Trending page, at all – but with just a week left until they finally settle their grudge, KSI’s insult comes as a well-timed jab to heat up their long-standing rivalry ahead of the main event.

Foregoing headgear and opting for heavier gloves, KSI vs Logan Paul 2 marks YouTube’s first-ever pro boxing match, and with other pros taking part in the undercard, this fight promises to be the biggest internet event of the year.

NickEh30’s latest Fortnite tournament was quite a spectacle, but it was tainted by an alleged stream sniper, who was reported and subsequently banned despite maintaining his innocence.

Nick ‘NickEh30’ Amyoony has been hosting a series of Fortnite tournaments in recent months. The latest one was the NickEh30 Cup. It gave players a chance to compete against some of the game’s biggest names in the scene for a chance to win $10,000.  

It was all positive for the most part. A lesser-known professional Fortnite player named  Crumble managed to impress and take home the prize. However, the tournament was marred with some unfortunate stream sniping drama.

NickEh30 Fortnite stream sniping ban

In the final match, several other players landed on NickEh30, including a Twitch streamer named ArchieFN. He eliminated NickEh30 and danced on his body for the better part of 30 seconds.

NickEh30 was less than impressed and looked disappointed and deflated on stream. It was a stark contrast to his usual upbeat and positive vibe. He was convinced ArchieFN was stream sniping and hopped into the replay mode to report him and a few others.

Fortunately, Epic Games responded almost instantly and banned ArchieFN for 24 hours as soon as he returned to the lobby. You can watch a full recap of the incident below and form your own opinion.

However, ArchieFN is maintaining his innocence. He claimed he wasn’t stream sniping at all. Instead, he said he wanted to “contest someone who wasn’t a tier-one pro” and decided to land on NickEh30 after seeing him land in the same spot during a previous game.

Still, he apologized for what he did and acknowledged that some might find it “scummy.” Sadly, that didn’t stop him from copping a bit of abuse, some of which was needless and extreme.

“Why am I waking up to 600 DMs telling me to kill myself?” he said. “I’m 20, and it doesn’t bother me at all, but the majority of the community is quite younger … you really need to think about what you’re saying to people on the internet.”

In the end, ArchieFN’s Fortnite ban won’t last more than a day. It isn’t too long to wait if he’s innocent, but it’s enough for a wake-up call if he’s guilty.

Either way, The NickEh30 was a success despite the stream sniping drama, and a rightful victor was still crowned.
