Popular streamer Matthew ‘Mizkif’ Rinaudo went ballistic on a member of Twitch staff after his content was mocked while opening up Pokemon cards.

While opening up packs during a November 29 broadcast, a member of Mizkif’s chat named AidenWallis emerged and started joking about the odds of getting a rare card.

Amusingly, Wallis happens to be a broadcast solutions engineer at Twitch and as such has an icon next to his name that indicates he works at the Amazon-owned platform.

“We have a higher chance of getting content than you do of getting something rare,” Mizkif read the comment out loud. “This is from Twitch staff!”

A Twitch staff member poked fun at Mizkif’s content.

Not pleased with how the staff member had mocked his content, the popular entertainer proceeded to put the website on blast, primarily focusing on the DMCA issues that have plagued the platform.

“How about you f**king fix your website instead of telling me to get content,” he swore. “Maybe when I can actually play good music I’ll actually be able to do some fun stuff. Or go IRL stream and actually be able to walk across a store.”

The latter remark was likely a reference to how fellow streamer Nmplol had to cancel an IRL grocery shopping broadcast because there was music playing over the speakers.

Some streamers, such as JakeNBake have been hit with DMCA strikes for IRL streams where licensed music has been played in the background.

“Aiden Wallis is coming here to tell me to get content. How about you fix your f**king website, dude,” he slammed, ending his epic rant.

Unfortunately, as it turns out, while Aiden works for Twitch, he doesn’t actually work on the site itself, leaving Mizkif a bit embarrassed when he found out.

“Oh f**k,” he sighed. “Then I just sh*t on Twitch for no reason.”

Even though the employee may not work on the site, it’s clear that a lot of streamers have some bottled anger towards the website for all of its recent issues.

Hopefully, in the future, Twitch can get its DMCA situation under control and streamers can no longer be afraid of going outside for their content.

Starting in October, the community nights offered up 30,000 points, which could be redeemed for prizes.

For the duration of the three-month-long series, players could also register their teams for bi-weekly tournaments, which were held on the National Guard’s organizer page.

Every player will began with 1000 points, and was awarded 10 points for a win, or deducted 10 points for a loss. The player with the most points each night walked away with 10,000 points, 2nd and 3rd get 5,000, and 4th through 7th 2,500 each.

For the bi-weekly tournaments, starting on October 18, players were ranked on their wins/losses throughout this period. The top players proceeded to the next stage of the tournament and were rewarded with Points, from a pool of 30,000.


To make things interesting though, Missions were in-play for all matches, as a way to earn extra points. For example, actions such as getting headshots, clutches, bomb defuses, nade kills and more were rewarded.

Players were set a mission challenge, for example, get 3 clutches, and succeeding will earn points. Mor information on how missions work can be found here.
