In response to accusations of inappropriate interactions with an underage female streamer, popular esports organization Team SoloMid have released professional Fortnite player Noah ‘Cowboy’ Cmiel.

Popular Twitch streamer ‘Faith’ came forward with the accusations in a broadcast on March 2, where she showed inappropriate messages allegedly sent from Cowboy to a 16-year-old girl.

“Imagine messaging a 16-year-old girl when you’re married,” Faith said of the debacle. “Imagine you’re on TSM and you message an underage girl saying, ‘Looking good.’”

In the messages, Cowboy allegedly sent the streamer an invite to his private Discord server, as well as told her that she “looked good” – complete with a winky face.

After Faith’s accusations went live, esports analyst Rod ‘Slasher’ Breslau contacted the underage streamer, who wished to remain anonymous, claiming that she was made “uncomfortable” by the interaction.

TSM later released Cowboy from their ranks – although no comments were made as to the nature of his expulsion from the team.

Cowboy has since made a statement on the matter via his offline Twitch chat, asking his fans to take the accusations with a grain of salt and denying any claims of being a pedophile.

“Please don’t believe everything you read on the internet,” Cowboy wrote. “I am not married and have hired a lawyer to clear my name. I am not allowed to talk about anything, but I am not a pedophile.”

Cowboy has deleted his Twitter account and Discord server in light of the allegations.

UPDATE: The president of TSM, Leena Xu, released a statement on the matter via Twitter on March 7, claiming that she reached out both the underage streamer and Faith in regards to the scandal.

She then brought evidence of the messages to Cowboy’s lawyer, later terminating his contract.


Overwatch pro Super returns on Jimmy Fallon: When to watch

OWL star Matthew “Super” DeLisi has been added as a guest on the show for the second time, linking up with popular presenter Jimmy Fallon. 

The Overwatch League is full of shining personalities, but it’s safe to say that the captain of reigning back-to-back champions San Francisco Shock is one of the league’s boldest and brightest.

The 20-year-old main tank player has certainly won the hearts of OWL fans, not only because his plays are the definition of brilliance, but because in every interview he features in his enthusiasm for the game is infectious.

This is likely why Jimmy Fallon has elected to bring back the OWL star for the 26 October episode of the classic American talkshow, The Tonight Show.

This isn’t Super’s first time on The Tonight Show

Back in 2019 Super made his inaugural television appearance alongside former Overwatch flex player turned Valorant star Jay ‘Sinatraa’ Won. Both players provided America’s viewers with insight into how the esports world works, discussing their rigorous schedules and sharing how many hours they sink into the game.

Super’s guest appearance on the show coincided with the team’s 2019 victory over the Vancouver Titans in the OWL finals, therefore it makes a lot of sense that Super has been asked to return to the show following a dominant performance over Seoul Dynasty.

When to watch and why

It’s nice to see esports becoming more prominent in mainstream media, so it’s worth tuning in to support the growth of esports, as well as learn a little bit about Overwatch as well. Super certainly knows the game inside out.

You can tune in to watch The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon at 11:35pm ET on NBC on Monday, 26 October to see Super alongside superstars Sterling K. Brown and Zoe Lister-Jones.
