Twitch OSRS streamer ‘Odablock’ managed to get all of his lucky stars lined up to nail the biggest 1-100 roll of his life, taking home a massive donation as his prize.

RNG gets a lot of blame in gaming. Whether it’s because your opponent lucked out in a fight, or you got screwed off a key item because of an unlucky roll, it always seemingly works against you.

However, for OSRS streamer Odablock, the RNG gods were certainly in his favor during his January 5 stream, netting him big bucks and soliciting one of the craziest reactions in Twitch history.

Instagram: OdablockOdablock is one of the biggest Runescape streamers on Twitch with over 5,000 subscribers.

While the Runescape streamer was running around, he got a message in his chat from ‘Parupadoo’ with a challenge — do a 1-100 roll on stream, get 99, and get 100,000 Twitch bits worth $1,000.

Odablock was taken a bit aback by the user’s request, even making sure that the donator knew what they were signing up for. “You know that’s $1,000, right,” he asked.

However, the streamer took him up on the challenge, and lady luck was on his side. As the random number generator climbed up to 99, Odablock leapt out of his seat, losing his mind.

“Sh*t,” he screamed, before asking someone off stream to look at what just happened. “Hamed, just look at the stream, Hamed, just look at the stream real quick please.”

He was still in shock as he tried to describe it, with his wallet feeling a little bit heavier after the win. “Bro, he said that if I roll a 99, I’d get 100,000 bits, and I rolled a 99 in a 1-100. How crazy is that? F**k!”

Odablock was holding his breath for the moment the bits came through though in case it was all a bait. However, much to the streamer’s delight, Paruparoo showed up with the goods a few minutes later.

Once again, he lost his mind. With the money now firmly in his possession, it was time for Odablock to celebrate, screaming into his mic once again. The streamer was so giddy he lost all bodily control for a few seconds, jumping in his chair with incomprehensible squealing.

Odablock hasn’t mentioned what he’d do with the $1,000 yet, but it’s a handy contribution for the popular Runescape streamer. Sometimes, you just need the RNG gods on your side.

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.
