CouRage has had his sights set on the milestone for quite some time and had lately been ramping up the total amount of hours of his daily streams in an effort to reach the mark as soon as possible.

Once he did hit a million, CouRage tweeted out an emotional message to the members of the CouRageous, the name that’s been given to his community of supporters and fans.

“From a dream to reality… The CouRageous are 1,000,000 strong on Twitch,” he wrote. “Thank you for changing my life. I love each and every one of you guys. Let’s keep spreading positive energy in this world. There is no time for hate.”

He wrapped up the tweet with a slogan that he’s adopted since the day he began streaming fulltime: “Don’t take part. Take over.” 

The dream he refers to in the tweet was the one he had since his days as an accomplished caster for the Call of Duty World League, a position he left in March to pursue a career in the content creation industry.

He joined OpTic immediately after leaving the CWL, at which point his streaming career took off in an explosive manner that he himself likely could not have imagined.

Now, he has established himself as a household name in the Fortnite community, in addition to still holding immeasurable respect from those who remember his days with Call of Duty.

This respect can be easily seen by the number of popular Fortnite and CoD Twitter pages that were tweeting out CouRage’s stream in an effort to get people to tune in, drop a follow, and join one of the biggest and most exemplary communities in all of Twitch.

CouRage will be the first to admit that when he first embarked on this journey, he could not have predicted that he would eventually reach the promised land. 

A former MLG intern turned online gaming celebrity, CouRage has now become a symbol and beacon of the philosophy that hard work, dedication, and planning ahead will eventually pay off.

Popular Twitch streamer ‘TheStockGuy’ was left speechless after receiving 126 lbs of cranberry sauce in the mail from one of his viewers in a hilarious prank.

Twitch is one of the net’s most popular live streaming platforms, and rightfully so; the site is home to a slew of hilarious and shocking moments that happen in real-time, from everything to doors falling on unlucky streamers in the middle of video games to viewers rescuing streamers’ trapped cats.

However, some of these on-stream occurrences are downright strange, and many streamers have received the odd occasional gift from their viewers, including that time when Pokimane received a body pillow with a photo of herself on it.

While streamers having a public P.O. Box to receive gifts from fans is not uncommon, very often the things they receive are; and Twitch streamer TheStockGuy became the subject of a seriously weird present of sorts.

Twitch: Pokimane
Twitch star “Pokimane” has received a slew of strange gifts from fans – one of which was a body pillow with her own face on it.

During an October 6 broadcast, TheStockGuy — who has gained notoriety on the platform for educating his viewers about finances and the stock market — revealed he’d been sent 126 lbs of Ocean Spray brand cranberry sauce.

“What is wrong with you people?” the streamer asked, seeming genuinely baffled by the situation. “Somebody sent me 126 lbs of cranberry sauce! What — where am I supposed to put this? Isn’t there some charity or something this money could go to?”

Although the he appeared to be utterly flummoxed by the viewers’ decision, he decided to make the best of the unexpected prank, stating that he would donate the sauce to his local food bank for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

“I mean — you know what? Joke’s on you!” he continued. “I’m giving this to the local food shelter for thanksgiving, so they don’t have to purchase cranberry sauce! That’s right — we’re making something good out of this!”

It seems that TheStockGuy’s viewers found the scenario to be completely hilarious — and while it certainly is worth a hearty chuckle, it’s good to know that the broadcaster is putting his viewer’s practical joke to good use, in the end.
