Tay Zonday, he of “Chocolate Rain” fame, started streaming on Twitch a couple of weeks ago with Team Fortress 2. Yesterday he dipped his toes into Hearthstone, picking up the game for the very first time.
After a few hours playing through the tutorial and trying to get to grips with the basic Mage deck, the internet started to work its magic. Zonday had shown his battle tag on stream and was getting inundated with friend requests, but some enterprising Twitch users managed to get his username to Octavian “Kripparrian” Morosan. One of Hearthstone‘s top streamers, Kripp was already streaming at the time to his audience of up to 20,000 viewers.
The two connected, and the challenge was made.
