After an epic quest filled with near-misses, trolls, hackers, and more, star streamer TimTheTatman has finally won his very first Crown in Fall Guys, and he racked up monstrous numbers on Twitch while doing it.

Since Fall Guys came out on August 4, people have been getting hyped seeing their favorite streamers add more Crowns to the collection. Unfortunately, viewers watching TimtheTatman’s channel couldn’t indulge in such pleasures.

Tim’s quest for his first win dominated seemingly the entire Twitch-sphere’s attention in the days leading up to the eventual victory; his streams routinely net thousands of viewers as it is, but during the chase for the Crown, the floodgates of the internet poured over his channel.

In the moments leading up to his ultimate Fall Guys achievement, people were obsessed with all the memes and blunders that Tim would face before claiming his grand prize.

Though Twitch stuttered and lagged at times, when Tim was the last one standing on Hex-A-Gone, he had clearly surpassed a whopping 346,000 viewers. He stopped streaming shortly afterwards, but had attracted 743,713 unique viewers throughout the day, according to TwitchTracker.

And he kept about 10% of those new eyes, as he gained 73,222 followers before ending the stream. His average viewership on the day of the victory tallied at 181,703 while the total hours watched on his channel was at a staggering 1,168,955. Not to mention the healthy 6000 subs he gained within minutes of grabbing his Crown.

Just three days prior, the craze spread to social media, where he collected over 5,000 Instagram followers and approximately 25,000 on Twitter, per data from Socialblade.

Last but not least, Tim also managed to get trending on Twitter, as the phrase ‘HE DID IT’ hit #8 on tweet charts following his long-awaited achievement.

Needless to say, TimtheTatman has been one of Twitch’s largest streamers for a while, but the past few days put the internet’s spotlight directly on his shiny head.

Before adopting Mediatonic’s party game, Tim’s broadcasts floated comfortably around 41,000 viewers, with peak viewerships clocking in at 48,129 on the day of Warzone’s Season 5 release and 68,149 the subsequent evening, according to Twitchmetrics.

Then, Fall Guys came into the picture on August 11 and it took about a week of Tim’s aggravation (and losing streak) to build up, but when it did, people started to notice.

On day one, Tim’s peak viewership soared above what he’d been achieving on Warzone, with an average concurrent viewers of 44,113 and a peak of 69,581 when he switched to Fall Guys.

Then Monday, August 17 came around, and as his losing streak grew, so did the traffic. He peaked at 129,018 viewers, which was outdone by the next day’s high of 143,372, all there to see the star streamer attempt to grab his first crown.

Tim admitted to being aware of the inflated numbers that the Fall Guys hysteria had created, so the question now is whether or not all those viewers will stick around now that the star streamer finally has a win.

Sodapoppin & The Kittens explain why they’ve quit OfflineTV’s Rust server

Chance ‘Sodapoppin’ Morris and Vigors, two key members of the Kitten’s group on the OfflineTV Rust server, are taking a break from the RP server. 

Even though Rust was first released in 2013, it’s experienced incredible levels of popularity in recent weeks thanks to some of Twitch’s biggest streamers.

They’ve, mostly, been flocking to the OfflineTV servers – The Badlands and The Divide – for a bit of roleplaying and PVP action, and it’s given fans some incredible moments. 

While some players have called it out as a phase, and are expecting streamers to move on in one fell swoop, they haven’t just yet. However, a few names are starting to depart from the server, even if it’s just for a break.

Creator’s have flocked to OfflineT’sV RP server ‘The Divide’.

The main two that have departed so far are Sodapoppin and Vigors. They make up part of the Kittens group on the OfflineTV RP server, where they finish every sentence by saying meow. 

Sodapoppin hinted at quitting a few weeks back when the OfflineTV server first got going, but didn’t, and moved over to the new server when more creators where invited. 

He hasn’t played Rust – on stream, anyway – since January 17, saying he’s just not in the mood. “I don’t feel like streaming Rust at atm,” he tweeted on January 18 after a creator skin for his group went live. “I streamed it for 2 hours, but they now made it a drop for mostly everyone’s channel since I have no interest in streaming Rust which is awesome, just filling y’all in.”

Vigors echoed Sodapoppin’s tweet a few hours later, hinting at more members of the Kittens taking a break from Rust.

“Our dumb little group had a fun as f**k time on the rust server but we deciding to take a break for now, he posted. “Met a f**k ton of dope people and am glad I got to experience this last month. Meow.”

In his day not playing Rust, Sodapoppin has still been streaming, but he and others have moved on to different multiplayer games. He’s even made a few returns to VRChat, even getting his Dad to experience it. 

The group could very well return to Rust at some point in the future, but that’ll be up to them. Who knows, everyone else might have moved on to something else by the time they’re ready.
