KEEMSTAR’s first weekly YouTube/Streamer Fortnite tournament was a massive success overall, but there was a slight bit of controversy as one team were forfeited after being caught essentially using a ringer.

The tournament was a battle for the most kills in a squad match of Fortnite, with popular community members teaming up in pairs.

One team, which initially featured popular YouTubers ‘Dolan Dark’ and ‘Colossal is Crazy’, surprisingly knocked out TSM’s Ali “Myth” Kabbani and 100Thieves owner Matt “Nadeshot” Haag, in the losers bracket.

The match was fairly convincing as Nadeshot was taken down early and Myth only managed to claw back six kills – by which point they were roundly beaten.

However, shortly after their elimination, Myth and Nadeshot discovered that they had in fact been advanced in the bracket, apparently with a 2-0 win.

Upon investigation, they discovered that one of the players, ‘Colossal is Crazy’ had in fact not been playing, but rather one of his friends was playing instead.

And Colossal later tweeted to confirm that it was not in fact him playing.

KEEMSTAR even called him to explain the situation live on stream.

It seems for future weeks, Grandayy, who has over 800,000 subscribers, will be stepping in in place of Colossal, who is presumably no longer taking part.

Nadeshot and Myth did go on to win the next round before being eliminated in 9-12th.

Among Us

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.
