Twitch star Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek had the most perfect comedic timing possible for Rust’s casino after Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel managed to lose an absolute tonne of scrap metal yet again. 

Rust has been around since 2013, but Facepunch Studio’s multiplayer game has probably never been more popular than it is right now, thanks to Twitch. 

Content creators of all sizes, and from all corners of the globe, have been flocking to OfflineTV’s two servers – The Divide and The Badlands – for a bit of roleplaying and PVP’ing, with the biggest streamers focusing on RP’ing. 

Aside from building bases, fighting NPCs, and even PVP’ing with other streamers, there is also the opportunity to gamble at a casino. Now, there’s now blackjack, poker, or slots, but just a lone roulette wheel to bet on. And xQc absolutely loves to lose scrap metal on it.

During his January 16 stream, the Canadian streamer, once again, managed to flush around 6,000 bits of scrap metal down the drain by betting at the Casino.

After wasting his last bits of scrap – which is used as the in-game currency, for those who don’t know – he exited the Casino with his head down, staying quiet and not saying anything to his viewers. xQc was pretty despondent at what he’d just manage to do. 

However, as he came across Shroud, his fellow Canadian had a different outlook. He broke xQc’s silent moment by whizzing around in his car, hilariously shouting: “I’m so excited for this Casino!” as he went to pop his in-game gambling cherry. 

xQc’s chat couldn’t contain themselves, laughing at how perfectly timed Shroud’s excitement was compared to his completely annoyed outlook. 

The former Overwatch star didn’t even muster up the strength to fire back at them either. He just went on his way, staying silent, until he decided to blow himself up using an RPG. 

Some viewers might think that losing so much scrap is enough for xQc to stop his Rust gambling exploits, but anyone who has watched him for a while will know that he’ll absolutely go again soon.


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 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.
