Congratulations to all of our New Years event winners!
Below is the list of streamers who participated and won during our event! To be qualified to win, streamers had to stream at least 90 minutes between 12/31 – 1/1. If a streamer earned more than 500 Star Bucks during this time frame, their winnings are doubled!
Star Coin prizes will be awarded accordingly! Thank you for participating!
Streamer Levels is a new system that visualizes the Star Bucks progress of a streamer, indicated by a meter and ranked badge. As you earn Star Bucks, the meter fills up so you can see how close you are to reaching the next level. In the future, leveling up as a streamer and earning badges will unlock new features to enhance the live streaming experience!
*You can still view your total Star Bucks amount by tapping the meter.
Every ranked badge (i.e. Bronze, Silver, Gold) has 10 levels (indicated by roman numerals). After you reach level 10 of any rank, the next level will advance you to the next rank.
For example, if you are currently a Silver Level 10 streamer, once you reach the next level, you will advance to a Gold Level 1 streamer.
Here is a sneak peak of some of the badges you can earn!

Resident Livestar streamer, Jenny Nguyen, has broken down the definition of a fuckboy (or fuck boy or fuccboi) in highly entertaining fashion. In her hilarious “Signs You’re Talking to a Fuck Boy” Power Point presentation, Jenny delivers the lesson in brochure format. You can catch the video below. So what exactly is a fuck boy? According to Urban Dictionary, a fuck boy is “A person who is a weak ass pussy that ain’t bout shit.” However, we prefer the third definition, and that is as follows:
“A Fuckboy is the type of guy who does shit that generally pisses the population of the earth off all the time. He will also lead girls on just for hookups, says hes really into you but doesn’t want to deal with all the “relationship bullshit” just to fuck you. He thinks about himself and only himself all the time but pretends to be really nice. He also does really fucked up shit and then complains about people who do the same old shit as him. once a fuckboy always a fuckboy, because fuck boys ganna be fuckboys.”
Jenny’s presentation seems to reinforce the explanation. She goes into detail on their mannerisms, key phrases they’re likely to say, types of fuck boys, and some courses of action you can take should you encounter a fuck boy in the wild.

Floyd Mayweather Vs. Conor McGregor – Bitter rivals, or social media publicity stunt?
It’s no secret there’s tension between these two goliaths of the ring – They’ve been at each other for as long as I can even remember. Their rivalry is so strong that even if you’re not into the whole “professional fighting as a sport” thing, there’s a high chance you’ve seen some headlines or overheard someone talking about “the big fight” recently. Well, it was probably about these two guys.
So where’s the beef?
So why do I keep hearing about this Mayweather vs. McGregor thing, I hear you ask. It’s simple really…
In one corner we have Floyd Mayweather, a (now retired with 49-0) professional boxer with an incredible track record, proving himself the champion of his discipline on multiple occasions.
In the other corner, there’s Conor. Conor McGregor. He’s the ultimate badboy, a true beast with a nearly undefeated scorecard, a great big ego – and a big mouth to boot. He has a history of openly antagonizing his rivals. It’s a classic case of “This town ain’t big enough for the both of us”. Sparks will fly – no pun intended.
Conor McGregor steals the UFC belt from Jose Aldo during a live press event
On multiple occasions Connor has been very vocal about what might happen if the two were ever pitted against each other in a fight, going so far as to publicly state that “… if I fought Floyd, I would kill him in less than thirty seconds”. Those are pretty serious words, and hard to ignore. But Floyd did just that, saying “I don’t take that dude seriously. He’s just trying to get himself some publicity”.
Pundits have weighed in on the situation, and while opinions are mixed, one thing is for certain: Everyone wants to see these two monsters have at each other. Even UFC President Dana White seems open to the idea; “Conor McGregor, if he touches you, you go to sleep. Floyd puts people to sleep too, with his fighting style, not with his hands”.
But what’s the big deal? If you’re not an avid fan of professional fighting, then probably not much. But like the FIFA World Cup, or NHL Stanley Cup, thousands of non-sport fans tune in to watch the best of the best duke it out in a winner-takes-all showdown. If there’s a fight to watch, this is the one for sure. They say there’s hasn’t been one like it since Muhammad Ali faced Joe Frazier back in ‘75!

Mannequin Challenge is a new online craze which sees people submitting videos of themselves looking as though they’d been frozen in time with the hashtag #MannequinChallenge. Is it a passing fad, or a new form of quick social creative expression? One thing is for sure, some of these are worth watching!
Where did the Mannequin Challenge start?
Here’s some of our favorite picks:
Blac Chyna: This might be the most memorable of the bunch. In this stunning performance, Blac Chyna, along with several of her closest, including Kris Jenner, Tokyo Toni, and Rob Kardashian, set an incredible scene for the delivery of adorable little Dream. The results are pretty impressive, it takes serious dedication to have so many people stand completely still during such a meaningful and personal moment.
Hillary Clinton: Capturing the atmosphere perfectly, this clip features Hillary Clinton, joined by her husband and former president Bill Clinton aboard a crowded plane just hours leading up the the U.S election. None other than the Legendary Bon Jovi appears at the end. That’s one way to capture the moment!.
Adele: In an incredibly palpable scene featuring Adele surrounded by what appears to be a plowin’ good time in an old western saloon, featuring several people in full cowboy getup. The atmosphere is almost too real.
King Keraun: Taking it a step further, the felon turned celebrity with more than a million followers on Instagram, King Keraun’s #MannequinChallenge is unique in that it tells an evolving story. It doesn’t end that well for him though!
To those in the know about these things, it’s no secret that the Nintendo Classic Mini dropped earlier this month. It’s caused avid Nintendo fans around the globe to rush to their nearest retailer in the effort to secure this little device for themselves.
But What Exactly is the Nintendo Classic?
It’s nostalgia in a box, brought to the 2016 consumer in the form of a remake of the classic Nintendo Entertainment System (NES for short). A faithful recreation of the original 1985 console, at about 40% of the size! It comes preloaded with 30 of the greatest hits the system ever saw, including Super Mario Bros 3, Mega-Man 2, Final Fantasy, Metroid, Castlevania, and The Legend of Zelda.
So Why’s the Classic a big deal?
Well, this thing has an MSRP of $59.99 USD, but that’s not the issue — The issue is that most retailers only received a handful of these. Some major stores only got 6 units, while dozens of people were waiting in line for the store to open just to get their hands on it.
The result looks something like this:
On Ebay, extra controllers are going for more than the actual suggested retail value of the system itself! The real problem is that this is a move Nintendo pulls time and again, dating back to the days of the Wii — And that’s not even mentioning the whole Amiibo thing…
