Twitch streamer ‘Knut’ Spildrejorde was intrigued by the recent resurgence in Minecraft playthroughs and decided to give the game a go for himself – only to fail at the first hurdle.

Minecraft has seen a huge boost in popularity lately, partly thanks to Felix ‘PewDiePie‘ Kjellberg’s YouTube series, and Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR‘ Keem’s Minecraft Monday tournament.

Twitch streamer Knut decided he would see what all the fuss is about and tried to play the game himself on September 4, but hilariously fell short at just the first step.

Knut’s Minecraft fail

Obviously the first thing you do when you think about playing a game is actually installing it – in Knut’s case, however, this is where he went wrong.

Instead of Google searching the game to find the download page, the streamer simply typed in ‘Minecraft.com’ in hopes that it would bring it up. “I have to download Minecraft,” he stated while waiting for the web page to load.

In a hilarious turn of events, the URL turned out to be a website for a mining company, and not the Microsoft sandbox he’d anticipated.

“The fuck?!” the bodybuilder laughed upon noticing his hilarious mistake. “Jesus Christ, what’s this?!”

After laughing at himself, the Norwegian streamer backtracked to Google to find the real webpage he was looking for, but even then still struggled to get the game client downloaded.

Upon logging in, Knut was kicked back to the main website homepage, where a giant ‘BUY MINECRAFT’ button was displayed. “BUY?!” the bodybuilder exclaimed in shock. “Why can’t I just download?!”

Luckily, the site recognised that the Nord already owned the sandbox game, and let him download it without spending any more money.

Minecraft is on the rise

Many other streamers have expressed interest in playing Minecraft during their broadcasts after the whirlwind resurgence of the Microsoft title.

Turner ‘Tfue‘ Tenney booted up the game for the first time on August 31, taking a break from Fortnite to give the sandbox title a try. 

Fellow battle royale pro Ali ‘TSM Myth‘ Kabbani also tried his hand at it on August 28 – both of whom suffered hilarious fails that entertained their Twitch audiences.

Although Minecraft is an older title that first released in 2011, its sudden rebirth has been a hit with both streamers, YouTube personalities, and audiences alike.

At the time of this article, the Minecraft category on Twitch has 84,000 current viewers, and over 14 million followers, proving just how popular the sandbox title still is.

TSM Hamlinz finally breaks Twitter silence after four-months away

Hamlinz has been missing in action for quite some time, but the beloved Fortnite streamer has finally broken his silence on Twitter on Oct. 25, and let the world know he is back and feeling good.

Darryle ‘Hamlinz’ Hamlin was once a pillar in the streaming world. He shot to fame while streaming Fortnite during its peak, and his popularity rose even more after he joined Team Solo Mid.

However, the beloved streamer has been on the down-low for several months now; in fact, he has been silent on social media for most of the year. 

Hamlinz tweeted every now and then between January and March, and even streamed a couple of times. But he was far less active than he used to be, and hadn’t posted at all since July.

Many speculated he might have been on another hiatus. The first one happened when he needed some time off to deal with a nasty cyst. The second one happened not long after when he needed some time to deal with personal issues.

Hamlinz was once one of the most popular streamers alongside Shroud and Ninja.

Hamlinz is back and feeling like his old self again

Thankfully, he bounced back on both those occasions, and it seems like he’s bounced back once again. The full extent of what happened this time around remains unclear. However, the most important thing is that Hamlinz has finally broken his silence on social media.

“Feeling like my old self again,” he wrote. It’s a little more than one hour old, but the tweet has already amassed 50,000 likes, 6,5000 retweets, and 6,000 comments.

The hype is real, and for a good reason. Hamlinz is one of the most entertaining, likable, and talented streamers in the world. Plus, it’s always nice to see people recover from whatever issues they’re facing and get back on their own two feet.

The comments are filled with people happy to see him back. “Finally something good in 2020,” wrote one fan. “Hamlinz is BACK BABY,” wrote another.

Sadly, Hamlinz has remained tight-lipped on whether he will stream again anytime soon. However, considering he is feeling like his old self again, it could mean that a stream might not be too far away.

Either way, there’s no doubt that it will be a momentous occasion. If the excitement in the comments is anything to go by, the floodgates will open and his fans, followers, and viewers will come pouring in.

Hamlinz has more than five million followers across Twitch, Twitter, and Youtube. It seems all the time off hasn’t dampened his popularity in the slightest.
