Winding God wins his 2nd LoR Fight Night Legends

on

Winding God continued his tournament win streak at week three of the Giant Slayer Fight Night Legends tournament.

Following his victory at week one of Fight Night Legends, Winding God returned in week two, finishing second after losing in the finals to Gvuardya of Team Aretuza. Both Legends of Runeterra players dominated tonight, with Winding God beating out Gvuardya in a winner’s final rematch that earned him a seat at the finals for a third week in a row. But his victory wouldn’t be an easy one, facing off against Rattling Bones who had made an amazing comeback from the losers bracket.

Week three’s LoR meta continued to showcase Ezreal/Karma, along with several Aggro builds like Miss Fortune/Sejuani and Zed/Quinn that earned the victory for Winding God.

Winding God faced off against Rattling Bones, who ended up in the losers bracket after round one. Rattling Bones fought his way to the final match by defeating Bruised By God and Gvuardya in the losers semifinal and final matches. 

Both players brought similar archetypes to compete with, creating an amazing showdown of who could out strategize the other. Rattling Bones continued his comeback, winning the best-of-three final match, and forcing a bracket reset best-of-three match to determine the winner of week three. But Winding God pulled out the win, sweeping Rattling Bones in the bracket reset final match. 

Winding God and Rattling Bones will advance to Fight Night Legends week four next week on July 17 at 4pm CT via Giant Slayer TV, with Winding God seeking his third FNL Legends of Runeterra title.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Among Us stream peaks at over 400,000 concurrent viewers

U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made her debut on Twitch on Tuesday with an Among Us stream as a way to encourage people to vote on Nov. 3.

AOC is the junior congressional representative for the 14th district of New York and is well known for her digital literacy and using technology to communicate with her constituents and the American people. Her stream on Twitch is the latest example of her use of social media for political activism.

“Make sure you hit up www.Iwillvote.com,” AOC said at the start of Tuesday’s stream. “Make a voting plan. Let me tell you why a voting plan is important. What we are seeing from data, and past studies and behavior, people who sit down and make a voting plan are more likely to get their ballot cast than people who don’t. . . please make sure to make your plan to vote.”

AOC was joined by fellow U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar, who is the junior congresswoman for Minnesota’s fifth district. Omar is a key ally of AOC, and both politicians are part of an informal group on Capitol Hill known as ‘The Squad.’ The congresswomen were also joined by Twitch personalities like Pokimane, Myth, HasanAbi, Gus Johnson, and Disguised Toast, among others. At one point, Omar’s daughter, Isra, also joined in on the fun.

The stream peaked at about 439,000 viewers, which makes it the third most-watched stream in Twitch history, behind Ninja’s collaboration with Drake and Shroud’s return to the platform. For further context, when Dr. Disrespect, one of the most popular streamers in the world, returned to streaming in August, he returned to more than 500,000 viewers. The congresswoman rivaled his numbers on her very first stream, and those viewership statistics don’t even take into account the viewership of the streamers who joined her on Tuesday evening.

Playing Among Us with Twitch stars was not AOC’s first foray into gaming.  In 2019, the congresswoman made headlines when she hit Silver 4 in League of Legends

She also made waves in Washington earlier this year when she introduced an amendment to block funding for military recruitment on live streaming platforms, like Twitch. That move followed the U.S. military using fake giveaways to trick Twitch users, including minors, into handing over their personal information to the U.S. military. That amendment was ultimately rejected.

With Twitch becoming a more mainstream platform, it would not be surprising to see more politicians utilizing it to connect with their own bases. AOC showed that you can reach a significant number of people by just playing games with popular streamers and having a good time.

Hikaru Nakamura challenges President Barack Obama to a game of chess

Popular chess streamer Hikaru Nakamura has challenged President Barack Obama to a game of chess.

In a tweet, Hikaru said any money made from the chess match between himself and President Obama would be to raise funds for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s victory fund and Act Blue, a Democratic nonprofit organization.

The offer comes after U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez started her own Twitch stream by playing games of Among Us with some of the larger streamers on the platform. The stream was a part of a campaign to get people out to vote in the upcoming United States presidential election on Nov. 3. AOC’s stream pulled in more than 400,000 viewers, making it one of the most-watched streams in Twitch history.

Hikaru, a Grandmaster recognized as one of the best chess players in the world, rose to fame on Twitch after collaborating with xQc, one of the platform’s biggest names.

Since then, chess has become a popular title to stream on Twitch, even sparking tournaments between streamers of all backgrounds. Hikaru has also since signed to TSM.

This is the first time PUBG Mobile will be debuting a song of its own which can be heard in-game. In the past, the game has released many songs which could be heard in the lobby or inside vehicles. But, these were always in a partnership with popular singers, such as BLACKPINK and Alan Walker.

It seems that Power4 will be dropping more songs in the future as well. The band has even gotten its own Twitter account.

Currently, players can get all four eye-catching outfits through an in-game draw. The ongoing Legendary Contract event gives players a chance to enter a lucky spin which could reward players with one of the outfits. The price of entering the lucky spin once is 60 UC. Players can also directly draw 10 times by spending 600 UC.
