For the two-year anniversary of YouTuber announced a new movement that will use his own channel and creative space in efforts to make the world a better place moving forward.

In a startling change of pace, it seems like the Maverick name is going to take on a new identity from here on.

“I want to start using this platform to inspire and create change when I can,” Paul said.

Paul’s change of heart is starting off with a merchandise promotion that will be giving away a sweater “to a child in need.”

Logan Paul YouTubeThe Lo-Gang could be changing their direction in the future.

Though specifics weren’t given, the promotion is a part of an overall initiative from the Lo-Gang to “actually do some good things with [his] YouTube channel.”

The YouTuber has been meticulously working on his Maverick brand for years, and it looks like he’s now searching for the best ways to change directions for his company.

“As much as I want to sit here and be the guy who’s like ‘We can change the world,’” Paul said. “Although we can, I’m not going to do it like that. I want it to be in an organic way, something that’s true to me.”

Critics might look at this as another publicity stunt from Paul. But the content creator acknowledged his time in the limelight has produced unseemly headlines and is looking to change that.

“As you guys know, I’ve done a lot of bullshit in my life,” Paul said. “But recently I came to the revelation: I want to do some good shit.”

The YouTuber has seen better days since his controversial “going gay” comments to the infamous suicide forest incident as well as the fallout of his Flat Earth documentary.

Though it seems like those days are well behind him since he’s looking to turn a new leaf after turning 24 years old.

It’ll be interesting to see how Paul plans to execute his newfound purpose in the future. The successful vlogger thinks he hasn’t “done enough giving” up until this point, and will be amending that soon.

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.
