Overwatch streamer discovers the risks of letting Twitch chat select music

When Overwatch streamer Jeff ’emongg’ Anderson decided to let Twitch viewers pick the music he’d be listening to in stream, he probably didn’t expect to get his ears destroyed.

Attacking on Lijiang Tower’s Night Market, things seem to be going normally until a viewer’s chosen song blasts through emongg’s speakers.

The Harry Potter theme song, played by heavily distorted guitar at max volume, forces the streamer to rip off his headphones to salvage what remains of his eardrums.

After turning off the assault on his ears, the streamer asks his mods “How did that get through?” while laughing about the permanent hearing damage he just suffered.

Viewers in Twitch chat were caught off guard as well, with many saying “RIP ears” or something similar.

Emongg is currently signed to the Philadelphia Fusion as a streamer, no word on whether or not letting viewers pick the music on stream is included in his contract, though.

Maybe now that he knows the risks involved he’ll rethink letting random people choose the music he listens to while streaming.

Noh ‘Gamsu’ Yeong-Jin of Dallas Fuel has announced his departure from the Overwatch League in an emotional post– but there’s a twist. 

On October 17, Dallas Fuel main tank Gamsu officially announced his retirement from professional Overwatch.

With a track record that included positions on dominant teams such as the Shanghai Dragons, Gamsu’s announcement has truly rocked the Overwatch world. Not many could have predicted this to play out like it has.

While the announcement attracted a wave of disappointed fan tweets lamenting the announcement, Gamsu’s retirement, it also caught the attention of several notable figures in the Overwatch community.

OWL caster Soe Gschwind expressed her support by tweeting that she wishes him “all the best for the future”, commenting on his play style as being a “joy” to watch.

 

In addition to Soe, a collection of OWL players from across multiple different teams came together to wish Gamsu the best for his future. Notable names included Houston Outlaws’ DPS Jeffrey ‘blasé’ Tsang, Boston Uprising’s main tank Cameron ‘Fusions’ Bosworth and Seb ‘numlocked’ Barton of Toronto Defiant.

A final tweet from Jon Spector, the Vice President of the Overwatch League encapsulated the feelings of fans and colleagues alike, where he congratulated Gamsu for being ‘at the top of the world’ in both of his professional game titles: Overwatch and League of Legends.

Gamsu returns to League of Legends

While Dallas Fuel have lost a legend, LoL has gained a new one.

Despite what seemed to be a devastating announcement for the Overwatch scene, there’s a silver lining: Gamsu is returning to League of Legends.

Before he made his name on the Overwatch stage the star player made a name for himself as the top laner for League of Legends behemoths Fnatic, with his skills helping score Fnatic third place in the 2016 EU LCS (the predecessor to the current European Championship, the LEC).

His return to the rift spark a great deal of discussion, with the most notable comment coming from current Golden Guardians support Choi ‘huhi’ Jae-Hyun tweeting “GAMSU TOP?”

The news even caught the attention of former Overwatch player turned Valorant pro for FaZe Shane ‘Rawkus’ Flaherty, who reminisced over Gamsu’s dominant performance as a top laner during his EU LCS days.

It’s safe to say that Gamsu had an amazing Overwatch career, but although he leaves the OWL behind he is back on the rift and ready to take on Runeterra.

League of Legends fans will be excited to see the return of a familiar face, and current professional players had best be ready for the return of a giant.
