League of Legends streamer Yassuo almost destroys PC after death rage

Popular League of Legends streamer Moe ‘Yassuo’ left fans wondering if he was going to need a whole new set-up after raging at an in-game death. 

Despite being one of the most competitive esports titles in the world and boasting a large fanbase, League of Legends doesn’t quite have the dedicated solo streamers with incredible followings like other games

Viewers can usually find streamers like Tyler ‘Tyler1‘ Steinkamp raging at an opponent or taking his fury out on other streamers, yet, it was the extreme levels of rage from his fellow streamer ‘Yassuo’ that caught the attention of on-lookers.

Riot GamesYassuo has even taken part in showmatches on the LCS playoffs stage.

During his July 29 stream, his first broadcast in two weeks, Yassuo had barely started up his first match of the night when he ran into an intense battle with a fellow midlaner. After trying to pull off a risky play, the streamer was slain and couldn’t believe what had happened – prompting him to take aim at his PC.

He slammed the desk so hard that it disrupted his stream by taking the game out of the full-screen view and into a tiny window. “God! That was such a sick play,” he called out after standing up to toss his headphones. 

Only after returning to his computer did he realize the damage he had caused. The streamer added: “I’m so tilted. My whole computer is fucking broken and I can’t see a thing on my screen anymore.”

Yassuo was left baffled that he couldn’t see anything on his main monitor despite a secondary monitor being frozen solely on his death. However, it didn’t take him long to figure out the issue. “I don’t know, one sec. Oh my God, is my monitor unplugged? Man.” 

After taking a few moments to tweak his set-up, including dropping his camera flat onto his desk, the streamer was able to get things sorted and jump back into his match – although he was still pretty frustrated at his death. 

While the incredible fit of rage may have given his viewers a highlight moment to laugh about for days to come, the streamer might just want to be careful in future – just so he doesn’t cause any permanent damage.

Fans rally as Sykkuno, Dream, and more are snubbed by Twitter Verified

On December 2, Twitter rolled out a huge mass verification, where many accounts of top gamers, streaming personalities and more were finally verified after a rather long wait. But some fans were left frustrated when Twitter seemed to gloss over popular creators like Sykkuno, Dream, and CallMeCarson.

Verification on Twitter is often regarded as a huge achievement for rising creators. That little blue tick is generally a marker that someone is making it big, leading to frequent campaigns led by fans for their favorite creators to be granted verified status.

Twitter decided to grant several wishes all at once on December 2 when they verified a huge number of accounts in one go. One such account was that of Corpse Husband, a YouTuber who has been on the platform for a few years, but experienced an unprecedented surge in popularity this year following the Among Us hype.

Corpse Husband is a wildly popular YouTuber who skyrocketed to fame for his Among Us content, although he also narrates True Horror stories and creates music.

But not everyone was celebrating, as among the chaos of fans and creators rejoicing at their new-found verification, some big names were left behind.

Popular streamer Sykkuno trended on the site with the hashtag ‘VerifySykkuno’ as fans vented their frustration about the snub. “Do it, he deserves it,” one fan wrote.

Fellow streamer Valkyrae tweeted a message in support of the internet campaign, which Sykkuno even retweeted from his account.

Other popular creators that found themselves snubbed by the Twitter Verified account included Minecraft YouTuber Dream, and comedy YouTuber CallMeCarson, who each tweeted their own tongue-in-cheek messages calling out Twitter.

Amid the disarray, instead of verifying YouTuber Karl Jacobs’ account, they accidentally verified the wrong Karl Jacobs with just 200 followers, leading to an onslaught of replies from fellow creators finding the bizarre situation hilarious, including Mr Beast.

While this was one of the biggest verification sprees recently, there is no doubt that another one will be right around the corner.

Fans of the huge creators who were snubbed this time around may be in for a slightly longer wait, but with creators like Corpse Husband getting that coveted blue tick, people are getting their hopes up for the next line of verified creators.
