The battle royale genre has been beloved this year, and NetEase is using that love to make the holidays a bit greener – with $30,000! December 17th will mark the beginning of the Rules of Survival “Hunt the Streamer” event.
The rules for the contest are easy to break down:
- Join a match with the streamer according to their world server (EU, US, and Asia) and match type (Solo, Duo, and Squad).
- Find the streamer in-game. They will be wearing pumpkin-shaped helmets to show their status.
- Take ’em out. If you’re one of the lucky few to defeat a streamer, you’ll be placed in a lottery for $100, and you’ll win 1,000 in-game gold coins. Since there are 30 streamers announced for the event, this gives players a (statistically unlikely) possibility of winning $30,000.
Streamers who have been confirmed for the event include LIRIK and AnomalyXd. DrDisrespect, as pictured above, was originally meant to join the streamer hunt. However, he has announced he will cancel events and livestreaming after revealing infidelity to his wife.
The event will begin at 12:00 a.m. on December 17th and end at 11:59 p.m., lasting all day. What do you think? Will you try for a $100 cash prize on the 17th? Let us know what you think.
“Oh no! An article about YouTube channels for kids! It’s just going to be about Minecraft, isn’t it?”
You might be happy to learn that no, there are many things more interesting than watching Minecraft on YouTube. Kids aged between 8-12, or “tweens” as they are sometimes referred to, are gradually wanting to break away from making and watching videos centered around the building game, and there are a whole host of great channels out there which cater to that.
As a parent, it is important to me that kids of this age watch videos that are suitable for them in content and how the hosts present themselves. Although he is the most famous of gaming YouTubers, I wouldn’t want my kids watching some of PewDiePie’s videos – especially given some of his recent faux pas!
Check out some of these great YouTube channels that we have found! All are suitable for tweens, and I’ve tried to steer clear of videos solely about Minecraft – okay, so there might be one.
