OfflineTV Twitch streamer Scarra has revealed his brand-new VTuber (Virtual YouTuber) avatar, complete with a full cinematic trailer, and it’s absolutely hilarious.

William ‘scarra’ Li is a former League of Legends pro player who founded content creation group OfflineTV way back in 2017. Their brand has grown to one of the biggest in streaming, including a YouTube channel with almost 2.4million subscribers.

VTubing is a trend that grew massively during 2020. It usually involves creating an anime-style animated avatar that acts as the face of the channel, with the avatar being controlled by the streamer.

While most avatars are humanoid, scarra has taken a rather different approach. Thanks to a crew of ten people, scarra put together a new Live2D avatar and debuted it on his Twitch stream. The reaction in chat was absolutely priceless.

Scarra is one of the members of the OfflineTV collective.

“I had an idea last April when Lily (LilyPichu) showed me hers. But I didn’t want it to be human; I wanted something a little different,” scarra said. “I’m not going to do a new name, or a new identity; I don’t want to have this replace who I am.”

The avatar is an animated homage to the dragon Choncc from League of Legends spin-off game Teamfight Tactics, with the added detail of scarra’s signature glasses. However, fans were quick to point out that it looks like an imitation of the dragon Ord from the hit 2000s TV show Dragon Tales.

While the reveal itself was hilarious, the best part was the exceptionally well-done cinematic produced as a build-up. Narrated by fellow OfflineTV streamer LilyPichu, it tells the story of how scarra died, only to be reborn as this new avatar.

In the tale, a drunk scarra leaves his home and wanders the streets, eventually spotting fellow OfflineTV member Pokimane. When he crosses the road to see her, he’s hit by a truck, only to be transported to a magical land where he is reborn as the Atlantean Choncc.

The cinematic is full of references, like when scarra celebrated 365 days of successive streams by getting drunk on soju, and when he went viral back in July 2020 for drinking water.

He stressed the model is very much a work-in-progress and confirmed new animations would be added in the future.

After MoistCr1tiKaL called him the “worst YouTuber,” fellow content creator MaximilianMus appears to have deleted his channel entirely.

MaximilianMus has been somewhat controversial throughout his YouTube career. He has been accused of bullying others on several occasions and under various circumstances, building up a solid fanbase for his edgy content as well as a number of critics.

For example, streamer and content creator WEEST exposed Mus in 2019 for urging his followers to harass and humiliate WEEST on stream.

Cr1TiKaL calls Max “the worst YouTuber”

He had built up around 1.5m subscribers but at the time of writing on February 24, his channel is non-existent on the platform.

Many believe that the creator deleted his channel entirely due to a video posted on February 19 from Cr1TiKaL, or Penguinz0, in which he calls Mus “the worst YouTuber.”

Discussing how Mus himself admits to “only doing these things so people make videos about him,” Cr1TiKaL goes in on the YouTuber, referring to him as a “parasite that thrives off of attention and controversy.”

In the video, embedded below, he shows screenshots of Max saying controversial things in Discord, including accusing others of pedophilia to his legion of fans. He also explains how Maximilian would often get his fans to head in their droves to bully and send abuse to others, such as in the case of WEEST.

If you head to Max’s YouTube channel, you simply find an empty channel that says it does not exist.

This was also shown off by WEEST himself, who celebrated and danced to the fact on stream after checking YouTube.

Although Max himself hasn’t come out to explain what has happened to his channel, it seems very likely that he has simply deleted his account.

Whether or not he comes back is another question, but with many of his peers not impressed by his actions, MaximilianMus might be out of action for a while.
