League of Legends by saying it was a game for kids and compared it to Fortnite.

Shroud has tried Fortnite out numerous times since he loves the battle royale genre but he’s never stuck around with the game for too long due to the childlike nature of the game, among several other things.

While shroud hasn’t outright condemned the game as often or as fiercely as his friendly rival Dr Disrespect has, he’s still had his share of problems with the game.

Shroud is one of Twitch’s largest streamers so his opinions carry weight.

With that said, when shroud was asked by a fan if he’d ever play League of Legends, he quickly compared it to Fortnite in the most negative way imaginable.

“Play League?” he said during a match of Counter-Strike. “League’s a f*cking child’s game, dude. Are you kidding? It’s like the Fortnite of MOBAs.”

A lot of people share the sentiment that if a game has a more cartoony style of graphics then it means it’s automatically marketed towards children.

While people do often repeat this, it can be a bit of uninformed opinion, as games like Fortnite and League of Legends have among the biggest player bases in gaming. League of Legends had over 100 million registered players when it was last reported in 2017, and Epic CEO Tim Sweeney reported in February that Fortnite had 250 million players. Statistically speaking, not all of those players can be children.

Fortnite and League of Legends also lead the world in revenue for digital games, consistantly topping Superdata’s Worldwide rankings for both PC and console.

Each game has had their share of competitors but none have been able to quite topple them, whether that’s with having more players or a bigger presence on Twitch.

Although shroud had these words for League of Legends, he speaks for himself here it’s easily one of the most popular games in the world.


Charli D’Amelio reveals her weirdest makeup faux pas with Maddie Ziegler

Charli D’Amelio is more than TikTok’s queen bee; she’s also a competitive dancer, Dunkin’ Donuts connoisseur, and a full-blown makeup mogul, although she hasn’t always been the expert beauty guru she is today.

Charli revealed her collaboration with makeup giant Morphe in late July alongside older sister Dixie, bringing forth a slew of new products for fans to use and express their inner creativity.

That’s not all; Dixie has also had her face beat by none other than James Charles, who gave the TikToker a glamorous makeover that has scored well over 34 million views at the time of writing.

Considering her love for all things beauty and makeup, it comes as little surprise that Charli has a solid handle on new trends and products — but this wasn’t always the case, as she revealed during an October 27 video with fellow TikToker Maddie Ziegler.

During the video, in which the two gals gave fans a tutorial of their everyday makeup routine, Charli revealed that she often asks other names in the beauty space for help — most notably, James Charles.

In fact, Charli revealed that it was James who taught her that you have to dampen your beauty blender before applying any product to the face, a fact that appeared to catch Ziegler completely off-guard.

YouTuber James Charles collaborated with D’Amelio for a colorful makeup look, where the TikTok star opened up about the more difficult parts of being internet famous.

“I’ve been able to definitely ask a lot of questions from a lot of makeup artists that I’ve worked with,” she began. “It’s been everything. Like, I didn’t even know that I was supposed to wet my beauty blender until like, a few months ago.”

“James was like, ‘You know you’re supposed to wet that, right?’” she continued, drawing a shocked, “Really?” from Ziegler. “And I was like, ‘Ohhh.’ I call James all the time, and I’m like, ‘Hey, I don’t know how to do this. Can you help me?’”

Luckily for Charli, she’s surrounded by many kind and helpful creators who are available to help coach her through the ins and outs of makeup artistry — something that she claims she still “needs a little bit more help with.”

Both TikTokers were quick to note that everyone is on a different stage in their makeup journey, and no matter what part you’re at, it’s always a fun time experimenting with new looks and products.
