Shroud believes Fallout 76 would be “interesting” change to OfflineTV Rust server

Offline TV fans are waiting to see which game they will choose to host their next server on, and Shroud thinks Fallout 76 could be an interesting one, but only if they address some issues.

Fallout 76 never quite hit the mark when it was released. It had a catastrophic launch and was described as everything from bizarre and dull to entirely broken. However, it has come a long way since then, and while it isn’t perfect, it’s not the hot mess it once was.

It’s not considered to be one of the most exciting games at the moment. That doesn’t mean it can’t be fun though. In fact, Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek thinks it could potentially be a good fit to host the next Offline TV server.

Fallout 76 never lived up to the hype.

“I’m waiting on BaboAbe and OTV to start a Fallout 76 server when they run out of other games,” said a viewer. Shroud looked a little bemused at first, but he thought about it for a moment and realized it wasn’t a bad idea.

“Fallout 76 server? What?” said Shroud. “That sounds kind of interesting. But at the same time, it doesn’t make much sense. If it was a system where you could, like when you spawn in, and you don’t default start in Vault 76, it wouldn’t be that bad.”

However, he still had some doubts about whether it could work. “But just how I imagine that is… it just makes no sense,” he added.

“Everyone just starts off at the beginning, and they just run around, and they do the exact same things. Every single person. That doesn’t make sense to me.”

Fortunately, he came up with a solution. “Now, if there was a world in which maybe two people spawn at the vault, two people spawn at the prison, and two people spawn down at the mines, then that would be interesting, because they would be all over the place, and they would be scattered.”

Fallout 76 is not the game everyone has in mind for the next Offline TV server. Many other games could be a better fit. So, while it’s an interesting prospect, the chances are it probably won’t happen. 

Still, if they can somehow mix up the spawn locations, it could be an exciting idea to explore. We’ll have to wait and see what happens next.


Why is #FreeTommy trending? Tommyinnit responds after shock TikTok ban

Popular Minecraft YouTuber Tommyinnit has become a major trend across social media again as the internet celebrity had his TikTok account banned out of nowhere.

Tommyinnit has been one of the fastest-growing stars on the internet of late. From remarkable Twitch viewership to staggering income, his growth across a number of social platforms has been something to behold. Though there was one major setback in his way for a short period.

The popular personality was suddenly removed from TikTok on February 24. Seemingly without reason, the platform banned Tommyinnit’s account which had just climbed to over four million followers.

“TikTok just banned me,” he revealed on Twitter.

“Crushed. I am absolutely crushed. Please TikTok,” he added with a hashtag that went on to trend in a matter of minutes. “#FreeTommy.”

Having trended on Twitter just days prior, this latest viral moment comes as a result of the bad news. Thousands of loyal fans immediately jumped on the trend, spamming #FreeTommy across social media to get it trending.

There’s no denying the enormous community support had an impact as Tommy’s account was restored in under an hour.

Hundreds of tweets and thousands of impressions later, his TikTok account was back to normal. All of his videos were brought back to the platform and the creator was free to engage with fans once again.

There’s currently no telling why the sudden ban came through in the first place, however. The 16-year-old has just 18 videos on TikTok at the time of writing, most of which are simple close-ups on his face.

#FreeTommy trends on Twitter.
#FreeTommy shot to the number one trend worldwide in a matter of minutes.

While the controversy was short-lived, it goes to show that even the biggest social media stars can have their profiles erased in the blink of an eye. 

TikTok is yet to explain the reason behind this shock ban, though we’ll be sure to keep you updated if any further information comes to light.
