Popular YouTuber Michael Reeves left fellow OfflineTV member LilyPichu pretty terrified when he showed off his clever chicken cooking contraption in Minecraft.

Seeing as Minecraft is a sandbox game, you’re only limited to what materials the game gives you and it’s physics when it comes to building something as small as an automated machine or as big as your very own city. 

As the years have gone on, players have gotten more and more creative with their builds – even incorporating single-player mods to build huge contraptions. Though, for Michael Reeves, who is used to making things that leave his fellow content creators stunned and puzzled, he put on a spin on a classic machine, a chicken processor.

MojangThe possibilities are pretty endless in Minecraft.

The newest OfflineTV member had been playing with LilyPichu when he devised his spin on the machine and decided to show it off to her. Though, Lily was slightly taken aback by what she was seeing. 

Michael explained that instead of having chickens roam free and collecting their eggs manually, he’d used hoppers, Redstone, and switches to make it all automated. The eggs dropped into one chamber and once the chicken had hatched, it would grow to the size required to be engulfed by the lava. 

“Cool,” Lily said after Michael had run her through the process of it all, visibly concerned by what she had seen – even if he had shortened their farming tasks by a considerable distance.

Obviously, with Minecraft being around since 2009, players have been coming up with similar contraptions for quite some time – and Reeves’ isn’t even the most startling. Some automated farming machines can be much more disturbing to see. 

Some players have even stretched it much further, pitting zombies against villagers in a confined hole so that they rack up materials and XP, while others have even found ways to make homes burn down as soon as they’re built. With Minecraft, the possibilities are pretty much endless.

LS reveals how xQc reached out to him during T1 fans backlash

Nick ‘LS’ De Cesare has revealed that Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel reached out to him during the T1 backlash offering his support and advice.

T1’s accidental leak that revealed LS was set to be the organization’s new League of Legends coach resulted in a wave of backlash against both parties.

Fans of the organization opted to send unjustifiable racial and homophobic abuse towards LS, as well as doxxing his grandmother and sending packages to her address. T1, from an outside perspective, did not handle the situation appropriately and seemingly offered little support to LS during this period.

This resulted in LS disabling his Twitter and going completely dark for a short period of time. This was no doubt due to the amount of hate and criticism he was receiving from T1 fans. One person who reached to support him was huge Twitch personality xQc.

LS revealed on stream that the Twitch personality reached out to him in support. “Before I disabled my Twitter and went dark on everything, xQc was one of the very few people who reached out to me,” he said.

It was obvious LS was surprised he had reached out to him due to the streamer’s popularity: “Despite the fact that I’m like an insect compared to him, in terms of like brand and size and everything, it’s very nice.”

LS repeated multiple times that xQc is a “real one”, showing his appreciation for his support and care.

It’s clear that xQc reaching out to LS really meant a lot to him and helped him get through the difficult patch. Sometimes, just reaching out to somebody going through a hard time can make a world of difference.

Now, it’s just great to see LS back on track with the League of Legends content and streaming again.
