YouTuber Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg is neck-and-neck with Bollywood label T-Series to gain the most subscribers on the platform – but he may have a trick up his sleeve to defeat his opponent once and for all.

PewDiePie addressed his ongoing battle with T-Series in an episode of ‘LIWAY’ on November 21, where he admitted that playing Fortnite might give him the edge he needs to overcome his Bollywood nemesis.

The episode in question featured a meme that suggested a collaboration with Fortnite streamer ‘Ninja’ as a means for PewDiePie to gain subscribers.

He appeared to entertain the idea, despite his mixed feelings about the popular battle royale game.

“That is genius,” he said of the concept. “I’ve never played Fortnite. It’s the one thing – the one shred of integrity I have left, that I will not conform to play this overly-popular video game just for the sake of views. But I’m desperate, dammit!”

While PewDiePie has discussed the possibility of playing the game on his channel in previous videos, he never followed through with the idea – however, his battle with T-Series may convince him to take the plunge, after all.

PewDiePie currently sits at just over 71 million subscribers as of November 21, with T-Series weighing in at over 70,900,000 subs and counting. While he saw a massive increase in subscribers following MrBeast’s massive ad campaign in favor of Pewd’s victory, the ‘king’ of YouTube could be defeated by the label earlier than was originally anticipated.

Hamlinz has been missing in action for quite some time, but the beloved Fortnite streamer has finally broken his silence on Twitter on Oct. 25, and let the world know he is back and feeling good.

Darryle ‘Hamlinz’ Hamlin was once a pillar in the streaming world. He shot to fame while streaming Fortnite during its peak, and his popularity rose even more after he joined Team Solo Mid.

However, the beloved streamer has been on the down-low for several months now; in fact, he has been silent on social media for most of the year. 

Hamlinz tweeted every now and then between January and March, and even streamed a couple of times. But he was far less active than he used to be, and hadn’t posted at all since July.

Many speculated he might have been on another hiatus. The first one happened when he needed some time off to deal with a nasty cyst. The second one happened not long after when he needed some time to deal with personal issues.

Hamlinz was once one of the most popular streamers alongside Shroud and Ninja.

Hamlinz is back and feeling like his old self again

Thankfully, he bounced back on both those occasions, and it seems like he’s bounced back once again. The full extent of what happened this time around remains unclear. However, the most important thing is that Hamlinz has finally broken his silence on social media.

“Feeling like my old self again,” he wrote. It’s a little more than one hour old, but the tweet has already amassed 50,000 likes, 6,5000 retweets, and 6,000 comments.

The hype is real, and for a good reason. Hamlinz is one of the most entertaining, likable, and talented streamers in the world. Plus, it’s always nice to see people recover from whatever issues they’re facing and get back on their own two feet.

The comments are filled with people happy to see him back. “Finally something good in 2020,” wrote one fan. “Hamlinz is BACK BABY,” wrote another.

Sadly, Hamlinz has remained tight-lipped on whether he will stream again anytime soon. However, considering he is feeling like his old self again, it could mean that a stream might not be too far away.

Either way, there’s no doubt that it will be a momentous occasion. If the excitement in the comments is anything to go by, the floodgates will open and his fans, followers, and viewers will come pouring in.

Hamlinz has more than five million followers across Twitch, Twitter, and Youtube. It seems all the time off hasn’t dampened his popularity in the slightest.
