An Overwatch streamer’s attempt to get amped up for his competitive match went horribly wrong when his Dragon Ball Z screaming hilariously annoyed his wife instead.

Gaming on Twitch is a balancing act of entertaining and engaging your audience, while also performing well in the title that you are playing, especially if it’s an online competitive shooter.

However, most personalities broadcast from home, so they have to be larger in life for their viewers, without disturbing the peace of those that live around them – something which an Overwatch streamer amusingly became an example of.

Streamer’s attempt to go Super Saiyan backfires

Twitch personality ‘thebaesed‘ had just jumped into a queue for competitive mode when he decided to get himself pumped up for the next match, as he was just one away from reaching Masters rank.

“I need to power up, dude,” he told his chat, and began playing a Dragon Ball Z song to go ‘Super Saiyan’ – a move in which certain characters from the anime transform into an over-powered version of themselves.

Imitating the animation, he put both of his fists into the air and started to shake them violently, before screaming as loud as possible as the music continued to blast.

Feeling a renewed energy, he told his team “Let’s get it boys!” However, his attempt to get “powered up” backfired when his wife yelled at him after being shocked by the noise he was making.

“Bae!” she called out, snapping the streamer out of his game. “Was that you!? Or was there someone at the door?!” she asked. The streamer admitted that it was him yelling and apologized.

“Why are you doing that sh*t!? I almost fell out of my a*s!” his wife exclaimed. The Twitch personality couldn’t stop laughing at the unexpected exchange, and said, “Oh my god, dude. Oh sh*t.”

The hilarious moment was a good example of streamers having to entertain their audience while also finding a balance to not annoy those who live around them.

Dragon Ball Z continues to be one of the most popular animes in the world. Originally releasing in 1989, it’s had countless spin-offs and adaptations, making it an iconic property in gaming that many people still take inspiration from today.

NickEh30’s latest Fortnite tournament was quite a spectacle, but it was tainted by an alleged stream sniper, who was reported and subsequently banned despite maintaining his innocence.

Nick ‘NickEh30’ Amyoony has been hosting a series of Fortnite tournaments in recent months. The latest one was the NickEh30 Cup. It gave players a chance to compete against some of the game’s biggest names in the scene for a chance to win $10,000.  

It was all positive for the most part. A lesser-known professional Fortnite player named  Crumble managed to impress and take home the prize. However, the tournament was marred with some unfortunate stream sniping drama.

NickEh30 Fortnite stream sniping ban

In the final match, several other players landed on NickEh30, including a Twitch streamer named ArchieFN. He eliminated NickEh30 and danced on his body for the better part of 30 seconds.

NickEh30 was less than impressed and looked disappointed and deflated on stream. It was a stark contrast to his usual upbeat and positive vibe. He was convinced ArchieFN was stream sniping and hopped into the replay mode to report him and a few others.

Fortunately, Epic Games responded almost instantly and banned ArchieFN for 24 hours as soon as he returned to the lobby. You can watch a full recap of the incident below and form your own opinion.

However, ArchieFN is maintaining his innocence. He claimed he wasn’t stream sniping at all. Instead, he said he wanted to “contest someone who wasn’t a tier-one pro” and decided to land on NickEh30 after seeing him land in the same spot during a previous game.

Still, he apologized for what he did and acknowledged that some might find it “scummy.” Sadly, that didn’t stop him from copping a bit of abuse, some of which was needless and extreme.

“Why am I waking up to 600 DMs telling me to kill myself?” he said. “I’m 20, and it doesn’t bother me at all, but the majority of the community is quite younger … you really need to think about what you’re saying to people on the internet.”

In the end, ArchieFN’s Fortnite ban won’t last more than a day. It isn’t too long to wait if he’s innocent, but it’s enough for a wake-up call if he’s guilty.

Either way, The NickEh30 was a success despite the stream sniping drama, and a rightful victor was still crowned.
