100 Thieves star Moe ‘Yassuo’ was getting roasted in and out of the game at the League of Legends Twitch Rivals tournament, but he had all bases prepared for this perfect clap back at Christopher ‘Montecristo’ Mykles’ comment.

Twitch Rivals is the perfect mix of high-quality LoL, and amazing content creation. Assembling some of the most popular streamers and the game’s best players into a week-long tourney, Twitch Rivals is entertainment for all.

However, usually at Twitch Rivals, someone is labelled ‘the villain’ for the length of the tournament, and this time around it was Yassuo.

After shunning Tim ‘Trick2g’ Foley off his team, Yassuo caught the ire of the community. But, in this one instance, the 100 Thieves streamer prepared the perfect comeback for this Montecristo roast before a game that had everyone reeling.

Twitter: TheMob100 Thieves are known for their streetwear, dropping a re-run of their iconic cream hoodie on November 23.

Before their semi-final match against Tyler ‘Tyler1’ Steinkamp’s Shadow Dogs Unleashed, Yassuo kicked back for the pre-game coverage live from the Twitch studio.

However, before the action even started, Yassuo was having to dodge a barrage of flame from the desk, with caster Christopher ‘Montecristo’ Mykles taking a cheeky dig at the mid laner.

“The man’s got a lot of trash talk for a guy who is basically a glorified 100 Thieves hoodie salesman,” Monte said.

Yassuo was quick to clap back at the former League of Legends caster and team owner, quipping about how Montecristo was kicked out of the scene.

“Why is Monte talking so much when he got kicked out of the League scene,” the streamer said in retaliation. “Monte, I’m going to start something with you too — you got kicked out of the League scene, the only way you came back is through Twitch Rivals.”

As Montecristo went on to praise Tyler1, Yassuo let the now-Overwatch League caster about his slight biases. “Monte, I can’t hear you because Tyler’s d*ck is so far down your throat, take it out,” he said.

Twitch RivalsYassuo teamed up with Sanchovies, Hard, Prismal, and Shady for the latest Twitch Rivals League of Legends showdown.

While the response was good, the pre-game trash talk might have gotten to Yassuo’s head a little bit. They went on to lose to Shadow Dogs Unleashed 2-0, bowing out of Twitch Rivals in 3-4th. They did manage to walk away with $5,500 for their efforts, and a lot of great content to boot.

Tyler1 and his squad went on to win the tournament without dropping a single game, taking down Nightblue3’s team 3-0 in the final. It wasn’t all good news for Tyler1’s team though, with jungler ‘Tarzaned’ getting hit with a 30-day Twitch ban after the tournament wrapped up.

Hafu’s Among Us lobby takes action against toxic Twitch chat

In light of recent drama involving xChocoBars and Twitch chat toxicity in Hafu’s Among Us lobbies, the streamers are working together to implement a process aimed at curtailing unsavory viewers.

In one of Rumay ‘Hafu’ Wang’s popular Among Us sessions with a variety of streamers, Luminosity Gaming’s xChocoBars was driven to tears and an early conclusion of her stream by overwhelming toxicity in Twitch chat.

While Hafu and others, like Jeremy ‘DisguisedToast’ Wang, tried to console xChocoBars and let her know that chat was being unfair — the damage had already been done. Viewers were aggressively berating ChocoBars for failing to identify the impostor and that pushed her to find a substitute for her in the game and end her stream early, forgoing involvement in Rachel ‘Valkyrae’ Hofstetter’s session later in the day.

In the hours since the unfortunate incident, Hafu has worked on creating a process to deal with toxic chatters that will involve moderators from each streamer’s chat joining a collective Discord channel.

As Hafu explains, her Among Us morning lobbies will be accompanied by a communal “mod Discord.” This will allow the streamers, in unison, to levy out punishments to someone who has been overly toxic in any individual chat.

While Hafu denotes the level of toxicity as anyone being a “poopoo head,” it’s clear that this process is designed to ensure that anyone wanting to be toxic will be relegated to uninvolvement in any stream that is part of the lobby.

Overall, the idea is a quality one as it should deter people from being too nasty in chat. If someone is so invested in a streamer’s game of Among Us that they become toxic, they’ll probably dislike being completely banned from the entire lobby’s streams.

As xChocoBars tweeted, she did need to take a break from the internet for a while after dealing with toxicity in the morning stream — but she will be returning for Hafu’s next morning Among Us lobby.

It’s unclear if this anti-toxicity process was in the works before ChocoBars decided to join for the following morning’s stream. Regardless, it should be comforting to know that the lobby is taking action against what has become a growing issue in Among Us streams.
