Shanghai Dragons parts ways with 5 players including Geguri and Diem

Despite having a successful 2020 Overwatch League season, the Shanghai Dragons has begun their off-season with a dramatic roster shake-up.

The team has today announced that five of their players will not have their contracts renewed for 2021, these players being Lu “Diya” Weida, Kim “Geguri” Se-yeon, Bae “Diem” Min-seong, Yang “Luffy” Seong-hyeon and Yang “DDing” Jin-hyeok.

This announcement comes as a bit of a surprise, seeing as though the Dragons were perhaps the single most dominant Overwatch team throughout most of 2020. Shanghai won two out of the three monthly side tournaments, finished with a winning 27-2 record in regular-season games to cruise to an almost uncontested regular-season title and capped it all off by qualifying as the region’s first seed going into OWL’s Grand Final Playoffs.

However, these players that are being let go have not been up to snuff according to the team’s coaching staff and as a result, didn’t see very much playtime throughout last season. With such a large roster, despite their regular-season success, perhaps the culling of this unused talent can make way for a more fresh and hungry group of players that can actually challenge for those starting spots.

According to the statement by the Dragons’ General Manager Van Yang that accompanied the announcement of these players being released, he “fully understands and respects their desire for more opportunities in matches,” and is quite sure they “will be able to have great performances in OWL.”

Diya, despite playing primarily for the academy team rather than the first string squad, was the only remaining Chinese representation on the roster. They now have just seven players contracted, all of them being Korean.

After cutting five players, the Dragons have plenty of space to sign new talent in the coming weeks and months before the 2021 Overwatch League season commences.

Supertf takes shots at XQC and Forsen after beating their Minecraft speedrun times

Twitch streamer Supertf had some harsh words for fellow streamers XQC and Forsen following his impressive Minecraft speedrun last week.

During a recent stream, Super was shown a clip of himself failing to complete the Minecraft speedrun challenge. While watching this Super explained that this compilation was of all the worst parts of his attempts while dishing out some heat to the other streamers trying to complete the game in the shortest amount of time.

“I’m a quick learner,” Super said. “I make mistakes but unlike the Hobo and unlike the Goblin I actually have a working human brain, I’m not some monkey ape brain who smells his own shit. I actually learn.”

Super recorded his best run of 29 minutes and 30 seconds just days after beginning his attempt at speedrunning the game, beating out XQC’s record of 33 minutes and 45 seconds.

XQC recorded this run during a heated rivalry between himself and Forsen that saw the pair grind out the game to achieve faster times. This competition began when both streamers were struggling to put together a sub one hour run,  however, since then the pair have both managed to shave down their times to under an hour with Forsen’s best coming shortly after XQC’s record.

Right now Super has a few minutes up on XQC, however, he has not halted his quest in improving his time and currently streams the game regularly hoping to get closer to the current world record time of nine minutes and 52 seconds.

Sodapoppin and Reckful’s VODs to be stored on server following Twitch DMCA takedowns

Due to the recent copyright enforcement by Twitch forcing streamers to remove their old VODs and clips, some of Twitch’s biggest streamers have moved to create an archive for this content before it is gone.

Speaking during a recent Nmplol stream, Malena shared that they had stored all of Sodapoppin’s VODs on a server from every stream since 2018, and select streams from 2017. As well as the VODs the streamers both had saved popular clips from their channels.

Malena shared that these VODs could possibly end up in an archive on YouTube, however, it would not be possible to monetize them as they do contain copyrighted material.

She continued, sharing that they were in the process of saving all the late streamer Reckful’s VODs to the server in order to have them should they be taken down from Twitch.

Reckful passed away earlier this year and since his channel has played reruns of some of his most popular VODs. With copyright enforcement being taken against old content it remains to be seen whether this will continue on Reckful’s channel.

“We don’t know who owns the current archives and we don’t want them to get lost,” said Malena.

These measures come following hundreds of Twitch partners receiving DMCA takedown warnings for using copyrighted music on stream. These warnings were not only dealt to those who had used music on a recent stream, they also considered music used in any past streams that were still stored on the user’s channel. The warning suggested to the streamers that they should take some time to learn about the law behind copyright as well as correctly managing the content on their channel and removing anything that would breach this law.
