Fall Guys August 28 Twitch Rivals results

The first iteration of ‘Fall Guys Fridays’ kicked off on August 28 with close to 1,000,000 viewers piling into their favorite streamers channel and getting behind them with some chat spam support. 

While there may have been some gaming gods like Shroud, xQc, Summit1g, Lirik, and Tfue taking part, the bragging rights for the first Fall Guys Twitch Rivals event went to Castro_1021, Bateson87, Tubasuki, and Smash690. Playing under the Team Castro banner, the FIFA streamer’s team was in the mix at the top of the charts for a majority of the event – avoiding the cuts with ease.

In the end, Castro’s side ended up with 425 points and the $7,000 top prize, while TeamClintStevens followed behind in second – claiming $4,000. Team GrandPooBear, Team Ludwig, and Team DrLupo rounded out the top five.

This event had been labeled as ‘Week 1’ for NA in the official schedule and European streamers will get their chance on September 4 in the same format – 80 streamers, teams of four, with a $50,000 prize pool.

It remains to be seen as to who will rise up and take success on the other side of the Atlantic, but when the focus switches back to NA at some point, who knows if Castro and the boys will be able to defend their crown.

Popular League of Legends streamer Robert ‘Hashinshin’ Brotz has claimed the FBI investigated him over allegations he was sexually harassing minors, and cleared him of any wrongdoing. He was permanently banned on Twitch over the claims.

Hashinshin was ostracized from the League of Legends community back in July, after claims the 30-year-old Twitch streamer sexually harassed underage girls by abusing his platform of power.

Other popular content creators, like Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani, stated that “Hashinshin is a manipular, predator, and worst of all [a] pedophile who used his platform to abuse so many underage girls over the years.”

However, the disgraced streamer has claimed he was investigated by the FBI and cleared of all wrongdoing.

“There has been an FBI investigation into me, and I have neither been jailed or charged with a crime. Some of you might not believe that. I have a freedom of information request [to prove my innocence publicly], but that can take up to a year,” Brotz said in a October 7 statement.

Numerous women came forward stories in July of Hashinshin grooming them while they were underage. However, Hashinshin has always maintained his innocence, claiming these stories were false, and that many of those who came forward have since deleted their statements.

He also stated that he was potentially looking into suing some of the alleged victims for defamation, stating they did a “public assessment of [his] character” that distorted what people thought of him.

“I was going to sue Alli for defamation ⁠— and I probably should have ⁠— but Alli is not a victim, and people started getting these really distorted views on what was happening,” he said, referring to one of the victims.

“Things aren’t as they seem, regardless of what they seem. I’m not a rich and powerful figure. They didn’t find that I did anything. I think a lot of this was a public assessment of my character, and a lot of people did this because they didn’t like me.

“I’ve been working on bettering myself over the last two years, and I think I’ve become a better person overall. It hurts a lot…to see all these people denying that.”

Brotz claimed that while he believed his accusers weren’t “all terrible people,” they betrayed his trust. He also said that while he believes they should apologize, he hopes no one in the community attacks them. He just wants to “go back to living a normal life.”

“I thought these were nice people, I thought I could trust them and work with them. That’s why my response to this was all sh*tty because I shouldn’t really have trusted anyone. I don’t think they’re all terrible people, but things really escalated,” he said.

“I don’t want anyone to attack them. I just want to go back to living a normal life. I just want to exist peacefully, and I hope people can start letting me do that. I hope this can change their minds in some way.”

Hashinshin remains permanently banned on Twitch despite his attempts to clear this name. He has also lost his Twitch partnership, and has instead moved to streaming on YouTube.
