A Welsh Twitch streamer known as ‘Reecesy’ has broken the world record for longest uninterrupted broadcast, beating the record set by ‘CallMeCypher’ back in April. 

Recent months have seen a number of Twitch streamers challenge one another for the longest uninterrupted stream ever. First came LosPollosTV, who set the record at the start of April, clocking in just shy of 200 hours of continuous streaming.

That record was beaten less than a month later, however, with CallMeCypher clocking in 200 hours, 18 minutes and 17 seconds of non-stop streaming. Nearly two weeks later, the record has been beaten once again, this time by a Welsh streamer.

‘Reecesy’ is a British streamer based in Wales who, at the time of writing, boasts just shy of 7,500 followers on Twitch. Despite his modest following, on May 3, he decided to take on the challenge of breaking CallMeCyppher’s record.

Over 200 hours later, on May 11, Reece announced he had broken the world record by over 12 minutes. His continuous broadcast lasted for 200:30:28. 

“I’ve officially beaten the WORLD RECORD for the longest uninterrupted stream,” he said, “[my] stream went down at 200:30:28. Insane 8 days of streaming, legit madness. Thank you all for watching. Truly so thankful to my incredible community. You are the best.”

Reece has done lengthy streams in the past, mainly for charity. None came close to the world record breaking broadcast however, which sees the Welsh streamer take home the gold medal for longest continuous broadcast of all time.

The streamer celebrated his victory while playing Valorant, before thanking his community for sticking with him for the insanely long broadcast. His stream was eventually brought down by a technical hitch, but he’d already extended the world record by over 12 minutes.

Given the recent events in the Twitch community, it seems likely someone will try and break Reece’s world record in the near future.

LS reveals how xQc reached out to him during T1 fans backlash

Nick ‘LS’ De Cesare has revealed that Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel reached out to him during the T1 backlash offering his support and advice.

T1’s accidental leak that revealed LS was set to be the organization’s new League of Legends coach resulted in a wave of backlash against both parties.

Fans of the organization opted to send unjustifiable racial and homophobic abuse towards LS, as well as doxxing his grandmother and sending packages to her address. T1, from an outside perspective, did not handle the situation appropriately and seemingly offered little support to LS during this period.

This resulted in LS disabling his Twitter and going completely dark for a short period of time. This was no doubt due to the amount of hate and criticism he was receiving from T1 fans. One person who reached to support him was huge Twitch personality xQc.

LS revealed on stream that the Twitch personality reached out to him in support. “Before I disabled my Twitter and went dark on everything, xQc was one of the very few people who reached out to me,” he said.

It was obvious LS was surprised he had reached out to him due to the streamer’s popularity: “Despite the fact that I’m like an insect compared to him, in terms of like brand and size and everything, it’s very nice.”

LS repeated multiple times that xQc is a “real one”, showing his appreciation for his support and care.

It’s clear that xQc reaching out to LS really meant a lot to him and helped him get through the difficult patch. Sometimes, just reaching out to somebody going through a hard time can make a world of difference.

Now, it’s just great to see LS back on track with the League of Legends content and streaming again.
