Twitch star Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys played a game during her March 28 broadcast where she rated fellow female streamers on the platform. The Moroccan-Canadian gave her take on personalities from Neekolul to Jessica Nigri.

A Korean rating game from the site ‘Piku’ has been making the rounds on Twitch, and various streamers have been re-playing the latest version for their viewers.

Pokimane gave a crack at the survey and explained to her chat what she likes most about her friends and colleagues. The star also opened up about her favorite personalities.

The streamer was talking to her chat when a donation linked her to the latest version of the Piku rating site. The Korean-based game puts two photos of Twitch personalities side by side, and asks you to click on which one you like more.

She was eventually faced with a choice between Maya Higa and Neekolul – who recently became a breakout sensation with her viral “oki doki boomer” dance on TikTok. “I know Maya and she is such a freakin sweetie” Poki said upon seeing her friend.

“When you see two girls you can say “yeah this one’s hotter,” but when you know more about them it takes them to wife level. And Maya is wife level. She does so much to help animals. She’s funny as hell!” she said, before picking Maya while roasting her boyfriend, Mizkif. “I’ll never pass up an opportunity to c**k Mizkif.”

The star had a lot of positive things to say about legendary cosplayer Jessica Nigri, and praised her prolific career. “Honestly, Jessica is a freaking catch. She’s been working hard for years. She has really cool hobbies. She makes her own cosplays. She does it all. She’s a powerhouse.”

While she wasn’t familiar with streamer zookdook, she exclaimed, “but if I knew her better, she is fine as hell. This aesthetic…” before pausing and giving a chef’s kiss motion with her hands.

The Twitch star also commented on streamers such as Amouranth and BrookeAB. On the 100Thieves star, she stated, “Have you seen her relationship with Symfuhny? She’s a ride or die bish. She’s funny, very wholesome and chill. I like Brooke!”

While she didn’t end up commenting on Neekolul, the breakout star herself recently addressed viewers comparing her to Pokimane. “I’m the complete opposite of Poki. I’m literally anti-Poki,” she said.

The Morocco Canadian continues to be the most popular female on Twitch with over 4.1 million followers of the time of writing, so her compliments will surely be an honor for anyone working hard on the platform.


Viewer who sued Twitch for $25M over “simp culture” denied by judge

Erik Estavillo, the Twitch viewer who sued the platform for $25 million in damages for exposing him to “overly suggestive and sexual content from various female streamers” including Pokimane and Alinity while using the site has had his case denied by a California court.

Back in June of 2020 Estavillo, who has previously sued Microsoft, Sony, Nintendo and Blizzard, filed a lawsuit against Twitch in the Santa Clara Superior Court of California.

According to the lawsuit, Twitch’s “twisted programming net code” combined with OCD and sex addiction made it nearly impossible for him to use Twitch without being exposed to “sexual content.”

Estavillo named a number of female streamers in his complaint, including Pokimane, Alinity, Amouranth, and others, while requesting they be “permanently banned,” however, it doesn’t seem like the court agreed he had a case.

Pokimane and others no longer have to fear being “permanently banned” as Estavillo requested.

In the tentative ruling posted by the court, the judge said the main problem with Estavillo’s case was the evidence he brought forward wasn’t enough to support the claims in his lawsuit.

“The “exhibits” submitted by Plaintiff [Estavillo] with his opposition do not identify, much less support, any claims under California law,” the ruling reads.

Basically, after the lawsuit was filed lawyers representing Twitch made a motion with the court to dismiss it, and the court did “with prejudice.” That means this saga seems to be over, once and for all, and can’t be brought back to court.

A lot of people questioned how far Estavillo would get with his case by blaming some of the biggest female Twitch streamers.

Despite this, the self-described Twitch addict has said he plans on appealing this ruling to the 6th District Court of Appeals, but whether or not things will fare any differently for him there remains to be seen.

Estavillo, who was following 786 female streamers and 0 male streamers at the time of the complaint back in June, said he wanted $25 million from Twitch, along with having all of the female streamers he had mentioned “permanently banned.” With the court’s decision though, that happening now seems slimmer than ever.
