QTCinderella criticizes Pokimane for “toxic” female streamer rating game

Twitch star QTCinderella called out Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys for how she handled partaking in a female streamers rating tournament hosted on a Korean website.

The competition, something referred to as a “World Cup” has been making the rounds on Twitch. It pits two streamers against each other with the user deciding who moves on. The survey ends once only one entertainer remains.

While some are enjoying the competition and even broadcast it for their viewers, such as Pokimane, others are taking issue with it.

QTCinderella wasn’t a fan of the female streamers ranking game.

“I’ll say, that whole World Cup thing, very toxic,” QTCinderella told her chat during a March 30 broadcast. “I thought that Pokimane wouldn’t have made it toxic, but she, she kind of added to it.”

The League of Legends streamer continued, explaining that she handled the whole thing poorly by making it about looks instead of just content.

“The appropriate way to do that, as a female to support other females on the platform, would be to look through it and say ‘oh, I like this girl’s content’ or ‘this girl’s really funny’ or ‘I’m friends with this girl, I’m going to choose her,’” she said.

“There were multiple times where Pokimane said ‘I’m purely doing this based off looks and this girl is prettier.’ I don’t think that’s appropriate for a girl who represents the majority of females on Twitch. So just, throwing that out there. It’s kind of a bummer,” the streamer concluded. “Big yikes from me.”

Pokimane also chimed in on QTCinderella when she played the streamer game. “If I was a guy, I would want to date her because it would be interesting,” she laughed. “I know it would be passionate, but crazy but whacky and a good time.”

“Maybe I’ll die afterward, but it would be a fun time either way. And I think she has a really really sweet, genuine side to her,” the Canadian added.

While Poki did pick QT in her first-round match, the League streamer didn’t survive round two.

It’ll be interesting to see how Pokimane reacts to QTCinderella’s criticisms or if the two will try to patch things up privately.

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.
