Popular Twitch streamer Imane ‘Pokimane‘ Anys received an unexpected coaching session from a completely random nine-year-old Fortnite duos partner. 

Pokimane is one of the biggest streamers on Twitch, boasting an astonishing 3.6 million followers while streaming a wide variety of content. She also shares some highlights of her broadcasts on her YouTube channel, which is equally impressive at 4.1 million subscribers.

In one of these highlights, Imane met an unexpectedly knowledgeable nine-year-old Fortnite player, who gave her some solid tips while he coached her to a very close win.

Right off the bat her teammate was calling out commands and trying to come up with the best strategy to win. The mish-mash duo managed to do incredibly well thanks to her teammate’s calls, but he was eliminated at the death, leaving Pokimane in a 1vs1 to close out the game.

This was when the coaching really came into play. “That high-ground is in the circle, but you got it, you got it!” he said as he cheered her on, and encouraged Anys to make her way to the favorable position.

It all came down to a final battle with Imane and her opponent racing to get a good angle on the other by building.

Meanwhile, her teammate kept supporting and coaching her, chiming in with: “you got this” and “don’t let him knock you down” as she was building. The fight ended shortly after, with Pokimane taking the win as her opponent fell from the massive tower, no doubt due to a lack of coaching.

Both players seemed ecstatic with the victory, as the streamer praised her teammate for all the help. With Fortnite having so many players it’s unlikely they’ll ever meet again, but Imane will no doubt remember this nine-year-old coach.


How to get your 2020 Twitch Recap: A simple guide

Twitch has been rolling out 2020 recaps for both viewers and streamers, letting you see who you watched the most, and if you streamed, how many total viewers you racked up. So, here’s how you can get ahold of yours. 

Over the last few years, services like Spotify and Apple Music have started to give users a recap of their year – showing off who they listened to, how many hours they spent on the app, and also adding a few recommendations for the following year.

Users of other platforms have called for similar things, so they can see just how much time they’ve spent watching videos, listening to music, and even playing games.

Twitch is one of those platforms that has followed suit, giving both viewers and streamers a recap of their 2020 on the platform – including who they watched the most, how many messages they sent in chats, and what their favorite emote to spam was.

To get your hands on your own, account-specific recap – whether you streamed or just watched along with Twitch chat – you don’t have to jump through many hurdles.

Just make sure that the email address you use on your Twitch account is active and can receive emails. If that’s all sorted, then, you’ll get an email from Twitch delivering your stats. 

If you think you’ve already got an email and might have missed it, then simply go into your email inbox and search either your Twitch username or 2020 Twitch recap. It should be there. Also, make sure to check your spam inbox, it might have gotten lost along the way and ended up in there.

That’s all there is to it, really. You don’t have to go to any new website and opt into anything special, just make sure that the email account linked to your Twitch is able to receive emails.

Of course, as nice as it is to see which streamers you’ve wasted far too much time watching, some content creators aren’t happy. Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel pointed out that the stats are skewed, and his case ruined altogether, for some streamers because of bots.
