Twitch streamer and former Overwatch League star Daniel ‘Dafran’ Francesca was forced to ban a toxic viewer for demanding he go back to Overwatch and stop playing Valorant.

During his April 14 broadcast, the Danish DPS prodigy was playing as Sova when a two-year subscriber took issue with Dafran’s choice of game.

“Valorant will last less than 10 mins,” the viewer claimed. “It’s sh*t.”

Dafran has been playing a lot of Valorant since the beta began.

This started a bit of a flame war in chat, prompting other viewers to argue with the 24-month subscriber about playing Valorant.

Eventually, Francesca himself chimed in and laid into the viewer for being negative. “What you’re doing is like going to a party and everybody is having fun, and then you say, ‘This party f**king sucks,’” Dafran roasted.

“Dude, the people here are not watching for Overwatch,” he added. “We don’t care about that. We care about this game. This game is fun. You’re in the wrong place my dude, go back to Overwatch. Like, what are you doing here? No one wants you here.”

That didn’t stop the negative viewer from continuing to argue about the games, so the streamer decided to ban him.

“I’m going to have to time you out,” Dafran disappointedly said, much to the pleasure of the rest of his viewers. “It’s going to be a Valorant stream for a long time. You can just unsub, I don’t care. I don’t want to see this talk in the chat. Go somewhere else, dude.”

Shortly thereafter, the Danish streamer revealed there was only one way he would stop playing Valorant.

“I don’t think anything is going to stop me from playing this game. Even if I go down to 100 viewers,” he shockingly proclaimed. “The only thing that’s going to stop me from playing this game is if I plateau and I’m not improving as a player. Or if the game dies.”

“If I stop improving and I’m just hardstuck and I can’t become a good player, then I’m going to quit,” he concluded.

For Overwatch fans looking to see Dafran click heads, it seems like they’re going to have to go elsewhere to get their fix.


Pokimane releases her own Fedmyster document to “put drama to rest”

Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys has conclusively responded to recent leaks about OfflineTV drama from Federico ‘Fedmyster’ Gaytan. In her own extensive document, the popular streamer shares her side of the story with texts and other sources.

The drama surrounding Fedmyster and the OTV house bubbled, then simmered, then boiled back up with a thorough document which was leaked, then shared by Fedmyster to give his side of the story. 

Fed, who has been accused of numerous improprieties, used texts and messages to provide evidence of his perspective and show some humanity. In the end, he tried to clarify for the public that the matter was resolved: “We both made mistakes and have owned up to them privately. I hope everyone reading will try to move on from all this as we certainly have already.”

But Poki immediately appeared perturbed by the leaked document, which included flirtatious messages between them as a means of demonstrating that Fed had been led on. In a brief Twitch stream, she noted Fed’s “manipulative” behavior and discomfort with private messages being leaked publicly.

Now, she’s gone a step further and shared her own doc to share her side of things and hopefully shut down any more need for gossip.

Pokimane and Fedmyster’s relationship is a long, complicated one.

In an 11-page document, including pictures of messages between herself and Fedmyster, as well as with other people, Poki clarifies context and attempts to remove biases that she felt Fed had pushed.

While understandably uncomfortable with private conversations being leaked, the streamer indicates that she is compelled to share her side because of Fed’s document: “Looking back, I would’ve done a lot of things differently, and know for a fact that neither of us handled the situation perfectly. However, our private convos heavily lacked context, and I’m not okay with how they’re being misrepresented.”

In one such example of giving context, she explains how one of the more egregiously received examples of flirting was actually misconstrued to suggest that she wanted to be alone with Fed in a hotel room.

A screenshot of Poki’s doc shows how Fed’s leaks lacked context.

Unwilling to be abdicated of responsibility for the complicated relationship, Poki asserts that she regrets many of her messages and actions.

Similarly, she contends that Fed’s “feelings are valid and a good reminder to me that what one person thinks may be going on in a friendship, don’t always match up with the other person’s expectations.”

The document tackles every issue brought up in Fed’s document, including the two’s relationship as well as drama with Yvonne, OTV, and Jodi.

But, ultimately, these are private matters and the additional context simply proves that Fed’s account may have misled in that it failed to account for other perspectives.

Poki’s hopes are that this new context will finally help “put drama to rest.”
