Twitch star Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys hilariously went off after Dimitri ‘Greekgodx’ Antonatos ruined her stealth strategy in Valorant one too many times.

Pokimane is one of the most popular streamers in the world, and has amassed an audience of millions on Twitch as viewers flock to watch her entertaining and laidback gaming streams.

However, during her April 18 broadcast, the Moroccan-Canadian raged after Greekgodx interrupted her plans in Valorant. The personality then hilariously imitated him IRL out of frustration.

Pokimane’s Valorant match sabotaged

The streamer was in the middle of a Valorant game, and had begun to set up her strategy for the round. The Twitch star was planning on moving stealthily throughout the map when out of nowhere, Greekgodx sprinted past her through a corridor.

“Every time I try to be sneaky somewhere, Greek comes along!” she exclaimed as she literally began stomp her feet on the ground to imitate him, before continuing. “Grabs the goddamn orb like it’s nothing!”

Laughing, she then yelled, “Oh my God!” After a couple seconds of silence, she then told her viewers, “Undoes all of my f**king work, dude. It’s the worst!”

This isn’t the first time the Twitch streamer has found herself frustrated after having her Valorant match sabotaged. During her April 12 stream, devious trolls were spamming the same number over and over again with donations, and disrupted her audio.

However, Poki addressed her viewers about getting angry later in the broadcast and said, “I hope you guys can laugh at me being freakin’ cheesed about stuff, for sure.”

Many personalities saw a major influx of viewers to their channel after Valorant’s developer Riot Games enabled drops which allowed those watching a chance to get into the beta. Unfortunately, this also brought a new wave of trolls.

Despite her stealth strategy falling apart, Pokimane and her team were able to pull it together and win their match. And if nothing else, her comical response to Greek’s interruption was absolutely hilarious.

The streamer continues to dominate on Twitch, amassing over 4.5 million followers to her channel. While Poki is known for her laid-back personality, her frustrations are totally relatable as we’ve all had teammates that have ruined our plans in a game.

The Pokemon Company surprised fans on December 3 with a special ASMR video hosted by Pikachu. The odd YouTube upload went viral after players of the Nintendo RPG couldn’t get enough of it.

Pokemon made its debut in 1996 and quickly took the world by storm. Decades later, the Nintendo property has surpassed titans such as Disney and Marvel to become the highest-grossing media franchise of all time. From cards to t-shirts, consumers can’t get enough of the beloved series.

On December 3, fans were surprised when the series’ mascot, Pikachu, hosted an ASMR video. Players unfamiliar with the audio phenomena that has swept YouTube and Twitch found themselves surprised by how much the Electric-type’s sounds made them feel relaxed.

Pikachu relaxes Pokemon fans with ASMR

ASMR, which stands for auto sensory meridian response, is a phenomenon where certain sound frequencies cause listeners to get tingles or chills. The category has exploded on sites like YouTube where millions tune in to watch personalities whisper into a mic – yeah, it sounds weird on paper.

Now, The Pokemon Company has shared their own take on the medium by releasing an upload that features lovable mascot Pikachu. Despite only being out mere hours at the time of writing, the video has racked up over 369k views.

For over 15 minutes, the Gen I character interacts with objects around the room, while also shuffling and rolling across the floor.  The adorable ‘mon even whispers its iconic “Pika Pika” catchphrase from various angles.

Despite not being the usual content the Pokemon community expects, fans absolutely loved it. One user exclaimed, “I never knew I needed a Pikachu ASMR!” Another viewer agreed and wrote, “The comfiest thing I have ever heard.” Some even wanted more ASMR content featuring other Pokemon: “I need the Eevee version of this.”

While ASMR isn’t for everyone, the unexpected Pikachu video has been a major hit with the community. Maybe Nintendo was actually onto something big with their Pokemon Sleep project after all.

Despite releasing over two decades ago, the Game Freak franchise has never been more popular. Fans have a lot to be excited for as the series will celebrate its 25th anniversary in 2021, with many surprises to come.
