How did this man go from casting League to this
He's great at what he does, his YT is massive and he actually makes an effort to create content. His success is completely deserved
Translated the large amount of energy he brings, I think – and he hasn’t lost his casting chops either!
Connections upon connections upon connections. He became famous casting, became even more famous with G2, spanish people wanted to talk to him, and he became friends with soccer players and then off of that he became known all over Spain. He became friends with Kun Aguero, who’s good friends with Messi, and here we are.
The energy this dude brings is insane. Hadn't really heard of him until the 2019 World's where he was the person introducing the players coming onto th stage & the energy he gave out was massive along with the crowd.
Charisma can get you waaaaay farther than you may think , also he's funny af
I knew about him last year when he casted Marbula One. He and Ander are fucking legends.
He is the best, and so funny too
I still remember him casting that G2 game and crying, didnt know he popped off so hard
Messi wearing Bulls shorts? Messi to chicago fire confirmed
Calling it Chicago fire is like having the New York Boeings
At least there's no New Orleans Huricanes
They will finally win the world cup!
Going to the *house* of the GOAT Lionel Messi, in the middle of the biggest transfer window in football history. I mean, how do you even pull that off? Crazy. He might even know which team he is going to, is it PSG? Who knows.
But holy shit, if this isn't proof you can make it big as a streamer/personality, what is?
Only club that can afford him is PSG.
What about tsm
That crypto money coming in hot
He wouldn't do it but imagine the balls if he showed up at some random low league team.
He's now off too stoke im convinced.
> He might even know which team he is going to, is it PSG? Who knows.
Honestly its been known since just a few hours after Barcas goodbye announcement. Only PSG and CIty had the facilities and City were fast with saying theyre not and Tier 1 journalists had reports on PSG contact within hours.
He will end up a farmer in France 😴
Finalist and demi finalist of UCL farmer lol
Btw thx for the harvest of MC, it's only been a billion for 10 years to get done by Cornet loool
Bruh that’s fucking awesome
Messi leaving Barca almost brought tears to my eyes, end of an era
This guy just went to like one of the most popular humans in the worlds house. A twitch streamer, insane.
It's all possible because he is friends with Kun Aguero and obviously Aguero being friends with Messi.
He also friends with Pique and casters in Spain on Sports. Also have massive deals with Adidas. Hell, he was casting on twitch the Copa America matches with live footage and had a pre show in the finals with Pique and Ronaldo.
Which Ronaldo? Couldn't watch his streams in France Sadge
So the Ibai and Messi saga is finally over.
[It all started with this.](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=15eLUKB-Q-4)
OMEGALUL people downvoting because it’s not a meta english streamer
drdisrespect spotted in an nba game = 46k upvotes
spanish streamer is invited to messi's house and meets him = downvotes
xqc gives his take on nicks rant about hasans comments about asmongold being friends with mizkif = 50k upvotes
This comment hurt so many people lol
This comment made me laugh, then cry a bit cus its not actually far from truth and legit 80% of the clips on the front page now…
I filtered every drama andy forsenBased
Fuck, this is why I hate the current meta of both Twitch and this subreddit.
true, i don’t even watch spanish streamers, but it’s just dumb to downvote because they aren’t popular on LSF LULE
The Doc pic was hilarious because he was in full character and you can enjoy it even if you don't know who Doc is, just because of how absurd it was.
Seems justified to be higher voted.
Literally 87% upvoted, swear some of you will look for any reason to bitch.
Give it more than 5 fucking minutes before complaining holy shit
I see a lot of comments in this sub about how only the streamers that are meta in this sub are culturally significant on Twitch, and every time, I wonder how they could have such a narrow experience on the platform. There are so many streamers and so many major spheres of twitch that are virtually never featured here and people act like none of them exist. I saw someone say W H OMEGALUL in a comment about a streamer who pulls 40k viewers every stream like 2 days ago.
English speaking people on an english speaking site don’t know who the spanish streamers are??!?!?!
You think LSF meta streamers are representative of all english streamers and not just a specific narrow circle of them?
You think his comment said that?
people are downvoting because twitter posts have nothing to do on this subreddit anyway, but they are only bothered by it if it isn't about the 4-5 streamers that r/LivestreamFail has turned into a dedicated fansub for
all twitter posts should be rebanned imo. just furthers the LSF "in-group" (eventhough this event was "hype" enough to be somewhat of a counter example)
Nah people be down voting because it's not drama or xqc
2nd most upvoted of the day and it's twitter .........
/> ~9000 upvotes with 90% upvoted
“HURR WHY THE DOWNVOTES????”
True but they won't downvote if the video is about a korean girl lmfao
god forbid people downvote a twitter update regarding two people who arent relevant in the english speaking streaming scene that this subreddit almost entirely focuses on.
im not upvoting cuz i dont know this dude
Thought this was a twitch subreddit *thinking emoji*
Where does it say on the sidebar this is an English only subreddit?
like my room is messy too bruh who cares
u really expect these neckbeards to know what football is? they spend their lives watching twitch lmao. xqc is literally their Messi.
I fucking lost it at the last sentence
Do you think your not a neck beard if you watch European football?
Nah everybody knows football fans consist of the most intellectual and sophisticated people on the planet
how much copium did u inhale
Man I'm so fucking jealous, Messi is my idol. Very cool for him though, once in a lifetime opportunity
Also important to note [Coscu was also invited and met him](https://twitter.com/Martinpdisalvo/status/1424157125501149185).
Yeah lol, he's famously short and timid, his overall demeanor doesn't match his insane genius on the pitch
Most athletes look like normal people in street clothes, not like they're huge and brolic like NFL players or extremely tall like NBA players. It's typically physique that catches the eye, and Messi has a rather standard frame.
Dooou nanana anashe buenardo de ruta fuaaoerte
Que picantovich coscu de nazi claveloide mal
thought you meant cosculluela lmao
Santa Cos diss for Messi incoming?
de ruta paaa
Ibai is an absolute legend.
Even in one of Argentina's most viewed TV sports show they were kinda jealous he gets to be in touch/talk to so many top level football players. An actual entertainer and clearly very passionate about what he does.
He got a free license to show certain league games on twitch, which is kind of crazy on its own.
He bought the license for Copa America in Spain
thats a flex
*Piqué bought it
Could you explain what led to this? Not familiar with the streamer but this is awesome for him
Nobody TV in Spain bought the Copa America nationally so the price was "low". For that reason he partnered with Pique and his company Kosmos where Kosmos bought the rights, let Ibai stream the entire tournament in his channel and in exchange he had to promote Davis Cup (the tennis cup) which is also run by Kosmos.
> Davis Cup
That's no small thing either damnn
He started as a LVP caster (Spanish lol league). From there, he made connections because of his charisma and ended up on G2. His casting was already top tier, having offers to cast profesional football and even the NBA. In the pandemic, Kun Agüero started streaming and he and Ibai became friends. From there, he met Messi.
It's worth noticing that Ibai is probably one of the biggest if not the biggest and most well known Spanish celebrity, being able to pull of streams with +1M watching. Also, because of his casting skills and friendly charisma, most Spanish athletes know who he is and what he does, he is like a connection between to different worlds
Holy fuck good for Ibai! Absolutely killing it!
dude i saw his energy and passion during casting league it's enormous and good to know this
Not a English speaking streamer = downvote LULW
Its not asmon shitting on wow thou.
how is this shit only 88% upvoted lol a streamer chilling with 1 of the 2 goats of soccer
Wow he got to meet Messi twice?!
> 1 of the 2 goats
oh no no no
It's ok. He probably met Messi twice.
This aint Facebook or even r/soccer lol it's all good.
??? Edit: why am I getting downvoted so much lol, I don’t watch soccer/futball, is Ronaldo not considered as on to par as Messi. Can someone explain
Not by anyone with footballing eyes.
>is Ronaldo not considered as on to par as Messi
Not by people who know what they're talking about lol, hard to dispute Messi being the GOAT. You can make an argument that different eras are hard to compare, so you might have Pele, Cruyff and Maradona in the conversation, but just between Messi and Ronaldo its clear that Messi is a step above.
> but just between Messi and Ronaldo its clear that Messi is a step above.
This is absolutely not as clear cut as you make it out to be.
Alright thanks for the info
Not 100% sure why people are downvoting, but Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo being the 2 GOATs is not undisputed. Most would agree they're the best of the last 10 years. But Pelé, Maradona, Cruyff and more are all also candidates for the GOAT title.
Its not undisputed but I don’t think anyone seriously believes anyone else was better than Messi or Ronaldo—the arguments are usually based around which one of the two is the goat
Yeah shame Maradona isn't around anymore :(
88% is extremely high you nerd.
It's not when you realize Reddit is an echochamber. The usual ratio is 95%+. You'll see that if you waste too much time here
messi the goat
i wonder if messi is a fan… regardless, this is really cool
Dunno if he's a fan, but most sports personas in Spain are at least aware of who this guy is. I think Marc Gasol even announced his move to the Lakers on his stream
He did. Ibai became the nexus between new and old generations. He is extremely well connected with both, this makes him one of the most valuable streamers in the world. He is a net win for anyone that wants to use him for any ad campaign.
I dont know about Messi but Ronaldo Nazario is a sub
Must be cool meeting the arguably best soccer player of all time.
Very kind of him to let that nice soccer player take a picture of him. Very cool!
that is insane
I fucking died!
Pretty fucking cool.
Looks like Messi met him and not the other way round, haha
If leeching had its peak, I think this is it.
Aguero shows up on his stream one day, and now he's dining with Messi on probably his last day in Barcelona.
Bar the fact that he could be truly gone this time tomorrow, but I still definitely agree.
The dude can go live right now and say where Messi is going before his press conference tomorrow.
so could I, it's psg
I'm gonna be honest, I'm from Spain but I'm so out of touch with the Spanish speaking community when it comes to gaming streams or whatever that I believe I'm not based when I say that, he's played with a lot of football players thanks to quarantine and he has played with Agüero multiple times, whether it was Among us, Fall guys, FIFA, and some BR I can't remember. I know it's still crazy to go from playing with a football player online to have dinner with Messi, of course there has to be something else, or maybe they ended up becoming close who knows :/
Yeah same. I dont watch spanish streamers but he has played with many footballers over the last year or two. Aguero, Neymar, even played padel with Pique not so long ago.
Tbh he had a pretty insane following after World's 2019 & got signed to G2 for a while. Since then, he's only been peaking higher.
damn thats a huge flex
Which one is Messy
Messy is a huge LoL streamer there
the fat one
Why doesn't this has more upvotes? It's literally the same as if xQc were on Messi's house. That'd have 100k at least. Ibai hoted the boxing event on may with over 1,5M viewers. He is top top, he has bring to twitch artists and personalities like Ed Sheraan or Ronaldinho for a casual interviews, averaged 100k viewers when among us meta, and more...
Anyway, English andys.
Idk, prob because people arent familiar with either of the two.
> with either of the two
People aren't familiar with Messi? I somehow doubt that
dude ur in LSF. xQc IS Messi for them lol.
Theres people that arent into soccer, especially in the us.
Exactly, I feel like only loremasters know wtf is going on here but "LULW ONLY DOWNVOTE CUS NOT ENGLISH HAHAWUT?!" Nah, not everyone knows these people...
Is it really hard to understand that most of the people on here are north americans and they don't care about soccer so they wouldn't upvote?????
apparently so, i too had no idea who either of these people are and why its something notable for the streaming world.
It's one of the biggest streamers in twitch, meeting one of the best football players ever, to add to that Messi is in the middle of being transfered from FC Barcelona where he has been for 21 years
Why would it have more upvotes? This sub is typically English speaking and overwhelmingly American. Most of us have never heard of either one. It would be like going to a Spanish speaking forum and wonder why they never heard of trainwrecks or Asmondgold meeting the coach for the Patriots. Like why the fuck would they know that? It’s not a huge conspiracy, people just don’t know them.
You don't know who Messi is? What? That's not comparable to the Patriot's coach at all lol
You mean Messi met him
Good one lol
I don't really know who this dude is but this is a massive dub regardless
im so goddamn proud of him
Well guess I better get my twitch going
What a legend. That’s the greatest Spanish streamer on Twitch he’s taking a picture with there. Lucky guy. Bit short though KEKW
Ibai la puso
can someone give me a little background on Ibai? he's apparently huge in spain
he was a lol caster for the spanish league, got huge in the spanish lol comunity, started playing with big lol streamers and when youtubers made the swap to twitch, he was there for a lot of collabs, aguero started streaming around the time so ibai also played with him and made conections with a lot a soccer players, he even had the rights to stream gold cup on twitch
[Also the guy on this meme](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y3OLwCakCfM)
Also popped off on Twitter casting random shit from Tetris to marbles that no one else was touching.
WHO is ibay?
ElEsJefe must be hyped
PARA MESSI PARA MESSI PARA MESSI PARA MESSI PARA MESSI GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL
Holy shit. Lucky broadcaster xqcL
Why do you people care how many fucking upvotes this has? Holy shit who cares
This is like getting invited to Tom Brady's house for his farwell dinner when he left Patriots
This is bigger
This comparison is nice to give some context to americans but in the rest of the world Messi and Barcelona are 1000 times bigger than Tom Brady and Patriots, so this streamer went to the dinner that most people in the world would love to just take a peek
NFL is mainly viewed in the US, so not as big of a deal. Maybe a better comparison (but still not even close to this) would be a more global sport like Basketball and if Stephen Curry left the Warriors.
Basketball is indeed a bigger sport worlwide than the NFL, but the vast majority of people don't have the slightest of an idea of who Stephen Curry is or what the Warriors are, and never heard those names, unless you follow basketball or watch too much sportscenter to end up watching an NBA clip.
Messi, in the other hand, is known all over the world by a much larger group of people, except in some random countries that hace no interest at all in football, wich is not the case for USA anymore. Most people in the world probably don't have any idea who Messi is, but it's very likely they have at least heard the name as long as football is a relevant sport where they live.
Thats true. Where I live (New Zealand) football is pretty irrelevant but literally everyone still knows who Messi is
>Messi and Barcelona are 1000 times bigger than Tom Brady and Patriots
Messi is definitely bigger than Brady by a solid margin but it's not that huge of a gap, Brady is still in the area of "hundred millionaire megastar athlete."
I’m American but even I can acknowledge that Tom Brady is famous all over America and really nowhere else, Messi is famous all over the world, there is a pretty big gap. Money isn’t the discussion here, it’s about fame.
Though I will say that I don’t really understand the extent that some of these fans worship athletes. They’re humans that are good at sports, not the second coming of Christ. I fanboy with certain athletes of sports I watch or incredible actors, but I would never break down in tears over just seeing someone in person or devote my life to being noticed by them.
**Pokimane liked my tweet on 6/3/19**
I agree with other comments. I know Tol Brady by name only because I browse reddit, and some times people mention him because it's full of american users. I can guarantee 99.9%+ of the people outside of the US and Canada don't have any idea who Tom Brady is and never heard his name.
Soccer is just so massive everywhere in the World that even if you don't care about the sport, and don't know who the heck Messi is, it's very likely you have at the very least heard his name in the streets, TV, radio, a friend, etc. Maybe 95% at worst of the people in the world never heard the name "Messi", but there is a huuuuuge difference between 95% at worst and 99.9% at best.
Sorry if it is disrespectful or offensive to some people but I have honestly never heard of the Patriots or Brady & must people don't follow American Football (if that's where he's from). Comparing them based on wealth is fair but when you compare them in terms of following / how well they are recognised, they're nowhere near.
Tom Brady has 10M followers on Instagram, Messi has 243M. That's a good comparison of their popularity.
> This is like getting invited to Tom Brady's house for his farwell dinner when he left Patriots
That's actually a good analogy, obviously is Messi is way bigger than any other athlete in the world but your example is perfect for the NA redditors.
Not even, the whole world knows about this.
morata is bigger than tom brady. the comparison between brady and messi is laughable
>morata is bigger than tom brady
^^^^probably ^^^^true ^^^^though
Saddest moment for messi and also all football fans....
mizkif networking with adin ross, ibai networking with lionel messi. theres levels to this game
People complaining about downvotes on a drama sub. Pathetic.
I’m really happy I have no idea what this means
Who? Cared or asked?
