Popular streamer ‘m0xyy’ called out Twitch staff after they removed his 5head emotes – something he found quite hypocritical.

During a March 21 broadcast, where the streamer was trying out the new Overwatch hero, Echo, he was asked about why Twitch took issue with his emotes by a member of his chat.

“The reason why a fifth of my emotes were removed was because they were ‘5head,’” he replied. “Even if they were edited 5heads, they said that 5head is from 4head, and they own 4head.”

The global Twitch emote 4head features League of Legends streamer Cadberry smiling, and is used as a reactionary reply to a joke.

Edited global emotes are fairly common on Twitch. For instance, Dr Disrespect has a modified LUL emote called ‘doctorLUL,’ which depicts the viral streamer laughing.

“Yeah, I don’t know, dude,” m0xyy continued, clearly still bewildered at the decision. “All I’m saying is that I see other streamers with copy-paste Twitch emotes, but with their own twist to it, and it’s fine.”

As the streamer got into a defensive position to begin the round of Overwatch, he continued to voice his disappointment with Twitch.

“I guarantee you most people didn’t even know 5head was from 4head,” he added. “Like, they don’t look similar at all, nor are they used in any similar context or manner.”

Just as the round was about to begin, the streamer turned up the heat and blasted the Twitch staff who made the call to remove the emotes.

“It’s just f**king r*****ed!” he exclaimed. “It’s f**king r*****ed, dude. I don’t know who… like out of all the things they could be doing right now, they decide to remove [my emotes].”

With that, the round began and the streamer started to concentrate on the game instead of dwelling on his issues with the platform.

In any case, it’s probably not in the interest of any aspiring streamer to edit pre-existing emotes at the risk of Twitch removing them.

A Twitch streamer has found a way to let his viewers flashbang him in real life — and it looks absolutely hilarious.

As streaming grows, it becomes increasingly harder for aspiring creators to really stand out among their peers, and you’ll often see that some of the top streamers have something unique about them, or their stream, that keeps viewers coming back for more.

The best example of this is someone like Dr Disrespect, who adopts the Doc persona whenever he goes live and feeds into the character, offering fans something a little more unique.

So, to stand out among the crowd, you need something original — and Quin69 might have found the best solution.

Quin69 keeps up a spirited stream for his viewers, and this flashbang feature only adds to it.

While streamers often take donations from fans who are looking to show support, Quin has given his viewers a little something extra.

That’s because if you donate a certain amount to Quin’s stream, you hear the call of “throwing flashbang” before the room goes bright white, with Quin forced to close his eyes or squint through the flash if he wants to continue playing.

As you can see below, it doesn’t look like a massively enjoyable experience for the streamer, who has to sit through the pain; but it definitely looks amusing for the viewer.

He clearly tries to shrug it off and acts as though it doesn’t bother him, but we can only imagine how often his viewers flashbang him while in an intense moment of whatever game he’s playing which, truthfully, makes it all the more funny.

For a good example, here’s him being flashed while in a boss fight on Path of Exile, at the worst possible moment.

Of course, it’s all fun and games, and Quin wouldn’t have the option there if it truly bothered him, but we can only imagine how many games he loses momentum in thanks to temporary blindness.
