Popular YouTube streamer Rachell ‘Valkyrae’ Hofstetter lost it to the stream due to a cheeky fall troll.
Streaming can often be a tough race, especially when you just want to kick back and play with your friends. Valkyrae is very familiar with this problem.
Fame and success can be alluring, but streamers often recognize themselves in the game. This can lead to teammates or opponents trolling or dueling a streamer for attention.
Although these trolls rarely do anything that Harmful in-game, dealing with players whose only goal is to get noticed by a streamer can be exhausting. It can push even the most light-hearted streamers to snap, as Valkyrae recently demonstrated.
Valkyrae criticizes the Fall Guys troll
Recently, Valkyrae was playing the popular battle royale obstacle course game ‘Fall Guys’ with various friends on stream. Fall Guys is quite a difficult game to navigate even without trolls, and the obstacles alone can cause players a lot of frustration.
However, in this particular game, another player seemed to have recognized Valkyrae and their only goal was to annoy her.
This fellow bean spent the entire round in the video following Valkyrae, grabbing her and pushing her.
Typically, the grab and push commands are used by players who want to gain an advantage over an opponent so they can beat them to the finish line. However, this player did not seem to be interested in reaching the finish line.
In response to being grabbed by another bean, Valkyrae snapped and yelled, “I get it, you’re fucking sticky! You are so fucking annoying! Die, just die!”
His friends pointed out that he was overreacting, but it seems this was not an isolated incident; the player had been grabbing Valkyrae in games “all day”, which would no doubt be pretty frustrating for anyone.
Eventually, Valkyrae started laughing along with her friends, making it clear that she wasn’t serious with her outburst.
It may have been for laughs, but even the brightest streamers can get annoyed by a troll.
