Popular Fortnite and Apex Legends, or chilling in the Just Chatting category.

Yet, despite the popularity, she has also attracted some less than desirable characters to her streams who have offered up some pretty outrageous requests. She usually deals with them by putting them ‘in the bin,’ but during a recent Fortnite broadcast, she took things one step further.

Team Liquid - TwitterPaladinAmber is a growing Twitch streamer who has even mocked Dr Disrespect in the past.

During her October 21 stream, the popular Australian streamer was about to search for a match of the battle royale title when she had to hit pause on proceedings and lay down the law to some members of her chat. 

“Normally, we just get people who ask for feet, but the moment I come into the Fortnite category, ya’ll keep talking about really TOS s**t,” she said, beginning her verbal blows. “Like, I’m talking like Fortnut s**t, like it’s weird – stop it. This is a kids category, you are sitting in a kids category, stop being an absolute sex pest, alright.”

PaladinAmber wasn’t finished there, though, as she ramped things up another level and continued on with the verbal jabs. 

“Imma need you to literally log the f**k off the computer. You’re in a kids category, this is so weird and in so many different ways, so wrong,” she added, before reaching her conclusion “So, imma need you to literally get the f**k out of this category, alright? Back to you guys, holy s**t.”

Now, it’s unknown what the exact request or comment was that set PaladinAmber off and prompted such a blowback, but it had to be pretty outrageous to warrant the power of her response.

It should, though, serve as a warning for anyone who wants to be on the disgusting side while talking in her chat.

The streamer is always watching and won’t be afraid to fire shots in your direction, even if she doesn’t bother calling you out by name.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
