At first glance, you may think that Fiona Nova is just a pretty face. While she is beautiful, she has social media skills, charisma, and game knowledge to boot. Her incredible work ethic has made her rise from variety streamer and Overwatch enthusiast to an official French correspondent for the Overwatch World Cup. She always engages on her social media despite her large following and is not afraid to speak out about issues about race and gender in the fandom/geek sphere. We can’t wait to see where her ambition will take her next.
The Easy Allies team (formerly GameTrailers staff) makes their love of video games clear in the sheer breadth of games they cover. There is something for everyone in the content they produce. Their reaction videos for E3 are always an entertaining watch. EZA just announced the opening of their own personal studio. We can’t wait to see what they come out next.

Twitch partner, Fareeha streams high-quality Overwatch gameplay as a top 500 Pharah, Sombra, and Ana. Despite her status as a big name Overwatch streamer and rank of Grandmaster, she is always super positive during her streams. After any rough match or bad death, she will go over what happened in the situation. This is to educate her viewers on how to be better players themselves. It’s refreshing to watch top-tier esports without having to listen to toxicity.
Super Beard Bros

TotalBiscuit (In Memoriam)
TotalBiscuit was a consumer advocate in the gaming scene. Everyone who’s followed him has been aware of his deteriorating health for some time, but it’s nonetheless come as both a shock and a blow to all those who followed him. He was defined by his integrity and passion. Not everyone agreed with him or liked him, but almost everyone respected him. He never stopped advocating for the consumer. He was vigilant in his attempts to keep his viewer base informed, and he managed to always produce content that was unabashedly what he felt like producing but which still held value. He’ll be missed.
