Popular music artist T-Pain has been streaming Overwatch since May 2016, but a recent match didn’t end the way he would have liked, and he reacted to the loss in the same way as Overwatch fans have been for years.

After losing on Blizzard World while playing McCree, T-Pain asked the age-old question of whether he’s really bad at Overwatch or if it was his team to blame.

“Am I fucking up everyone’s game or is every team I’m getting on just the worst?” T-Pain asked Twitch Chat before the stat screen showed only one elimination for the musician.

“I got one elimination,” he laughed, barely hiding the sadness every Overwatch player feels in that situation behind a wall of laughter.

It’s not the first time that T-Pain has streamed on Twitch – he plays other games but has said in the past there’s a special place in his heart for Overwatch

The entertainer even said he’s interested in cosplaying an Overwatch character at an event or convention sometime.

T-Pain has spoken openly about his love for gaming on stream and in interviews. Once, on stream, the rapper talked about how he spent over $10,000 on EA’s Madden NFL – no word on whether he’s spent that much in Overwatch yet though.

T-Pain isn’t the only musician to get into Twitch. Popular streamer Ninja has played Fortnite Battle Royale with Drake and Travis Scott several times, including in a stream that broke the record for most concurrent viewers on Twitch. 

It doesn’t seem like T-Pain’s love for Overwatch is going away anytime soon, though. Even when he does get only one elimination he takes it in stride like any good player should – who knows? We might even get to see that Winston cosplay soon.

YouTube star-turned-pro boxer Jake Paul has officially revealed that he’s taking on another fight, as announced in a “huge” broadcast on January 20 — and he wants his fellow content creators on the undercard.

Yesterday, Jake Paul revealed in a tweet that he had a big announcement coming up for his fans, which would be broadcasted officially via Triller.

The day is finally here, and Paul has disclosed that he’s already set for an upcoming bout, and even gave his fans an official date for the fight.

Who is Jake Paul fighting next?

Unfortunately, the YouTuber didn’t drop any names, leaving many in the dark as to who he could be facing off against.

However, Paul has made a wealth of enemies in professional fighting circles since his 2nd round KO over Nate Robinson in November of last year, including the likes of MMA artists Dillon Danis, Ben Askren, and even Conor McGregor.

In fact, Askren accepted Paul’s challenge when the YouTuber called him out via social media, although things have been especially quiet on that forefront for some time afterwards.

Thus far, there’s no telling who Paul will fight next, although many fans are anxious for him to take on a professional fighter in wake of his multiple victories over celebs and fellow influencers.

When is Jake Paul’s next fight?

Jake Paul will be throwing down in the boxing ring again on April 10, 2021 — a little under three months away.

This fight will come just two months after Logan Paul’s upcoming exhibition against Floyd Mayweather, already proving 2021 to be a fairly busy month for the brothers.

As for the event itself, Jake was keen to have other influencers on the undercard. Many fans have expressed hopes for Slim and Deji to make an appearance — two YouTubers who have already fought in live streamed boxing matches, previously.

That’s not all; Paul also teased that rapper Snoop Dogg will be making an appearance on the mic, making this a truly star-studded affair.

Where to watch Jake Paul’s next fight?

The fight appears to be available to watch via Triller, exclusively, so make sure to set up your account if you want to tune into the action.

Paul is hoping to create the “biggest pay-per-view ever” — but with no opponent yet announced, there’s no telling if his dream will come true in a few month’s time.
