Twitch streamer Fortnite during his April 3 stream when he came across a young fan by the name of Brady, who Tim surprised by offering to buy a brand new PC.

During his stream on April 3, Tim was playing random Duos in Fortnite with an alt account called TTV.rush3r when he came across a young fan named Brady, who went by bradyzlol in in-game.

The two played a couple of games together and Brady even mentioned how viewers came over from Tim’s chat to Brady’s to donate him money randomly, and it sounded like Tim was going to chip in some extra money for Brady to perhaps get a new PC.

“I’m gonna wanna talk to your dad in like DMs to help you get a new computer,” Tim said. “You’re a good kid, here’s the thing too, you’re a really nice kid. You’re very respectful. I think you got like $500 there, so maybe we can get you a $1000 computer or something like that.” 

Tim has played with many random players in Fortnite before but it seems safe to say none of them has made the impression Brady has on him.

At the end of all of his streams, Tim will go through the Twitch directory and find a small streamer before hosting them with his tens of thousands of viewers. 

While Tim didn’t host Brady after this stream, he still received loads of thank yous and praise from him in a Twitter video.

In Brady’s video thanking Tim for offering to get him a PC, he offered many tearful thank yous and showed a genuine reaction to such a good gesture.

“TimTheTatman, I got into a random duo with him,” Brady said. “He just kept talking, it escalated and it kept getting better and better. It just led to him buying me a new computer.”

Acts of kindness like this on Twitch can be found a lot among the bigger streamers. Most recently, Jaryd ‘Summit1g’ Lazar offered to buy a PC for a viewer back in January.

While Twitch can be toxic at times, there are also heartwarming moments like this sprinkled in there.

NickEh30’s latest Fortnite tournament was quite a spectacle, but it was tainted by an alleged stream sniper, who was reported and subsequently banned despite maintaining his innocence.

Nick ‘NickEh30’ Amyoony has been hosting a series of Fortnite tournaments in recent months. The latest one was the NickEh30 Cup. It gave players a chance to compete against some of the game’s biggest names in the scene for a chance to win $10,000.  

It was all positive for the most part. A lesser-known professional Fortnite player named  Crumble managed to impress and take home the prize. However, the tournament was marred with some unfortunate stream sniping drama.

NickEh30 Fortnite stream sniping ban

In the final match, several other players landed on NickEh30, including a Twitch streamer named ArchieFN. He eliminated NickEh30 and danced on his body for the better part of 30 seconds.

NickEh30 was less than impressed and looked disappointed and deflated on stream. It was a stark contrast to his usual upbeat and positive vibe. He was convinced ArchieFN was stream sniping and hopped into the replay mode to report him and a few others.

Fortunately, Epic Games responded almost instantly and banned ArchieFN for 24 hours as soon as he returned to the lobby. You can watch a full recap of the incident below and form your own opinion.

However, ArchieFN is maintaining his innocence. He claimed he wasn’t stream sniping at all. Instead, he said he wanted to “contest someone who wasn’t a tier-one pro” and decided to land on NickEh30 after seeing him land in the same spot during a previous game.

Still, he apologized for what he did and acknowledged that some might find it “scummy.” Sadly, that didn’t stop him from copping a bit of abuse, some of which was needless and extreme.

“Why am I waking up to 600 DMs telling me to kill myself?” he said. “I’m 20, and it doesn’t bother me at all, but the majority of the community is quite younger … you really need to think about what you’re saying to people on the internet.”

In the end, ArchieFN’s Fortnite ban won’t last more than a day. It isn’t too long to wait if he’s innocent, but it’s enough for a wake-up call if he’s guilty.

Either way, The NickEh30 was a success despite the stream sniping drama, and a rightful victor was still crowned.
