Awesome: Yogscast

Charity Livestreams

  • Raising over £240,000 for charity with their 2012 Christmas livestream.
  • Their 2013 Christmas Dwarven Dairy Drive raised over $100,000 (£60,900) in their first day. This makes the moment count for both the fans and the Yogs.
  • On the 3rd day of the 2013 livestream, Hannah, Kim, and Simon (with Sparkles* giving hints) manage to play through all of Slender: The Arrival. Apparently it's the first time anyone has finished a game on a livestream.
  • Kaeyi pretty much owns anyone who challenges her at Just Dance, the only one coming close to beating her being Strippin.
  • On the 10th December, 2013, the Yogscast reached $397,311. That's the equivalent of £241,000, and they're only on Day 10. Holy crap.
  • Day 14's total: 500,000 by streams end. Fuck yeah!!
  • In 27 days, the Yogscast has raised over $1,000,000 for charity, smashing their end of December goal of $500,000. One. Million. Dollars. Well done, everyone.
  • From the Dwarven Jingle Jam:
    • They raised $100,000 on the first day alone.
    • After a decent start to the 2014 streams, day 4 doesn't look good, with the stream constantly cutting out and not allowing Hannah, Simon and Kim to do their work. Cue Nilesy jumping in to take over and carry the stream for them. Bonus points for also managing to raise $12,000 in five minutes purely by motivating the viewers to each donate just $1.
    • By the end of day 6, the Yogscast have raised $300,000.
    • It was a close run and they technically went into the New Year, but they managed to raise $1.1 million dollars. It might not have been as quickly as before, but they still beat their previous record.

Garry's Mod

  • During this episode of Trouble In Terrorist Town, Sips becomes the traitor and manages to successfully kill everybody- not by manipulation, since he's discovered very early on, but with a good hiding place and some decent firepower. He first kills Simon randomly, then retreats into a cabin and forces the others to enter piecemeal with some tripwires, at which point he guns down everyone but Smiffy. Smiffy then charges him and nearly brings him down... only for Sips to pull out a jihad bomb.
  • In this episode of Murder!, Trott manages to win the round for the survivors after Smiffy murders a couple of survivors... by using one of them as a distraction and managing to not be killed by hiding further down the same cupboard. He then grabs the gun, waits patiently for Smiffy to emerge and wastes him. Points for both sheer audacity and resourcefulness.
  • Tom, aka Angor, makes his debut in TTT by successfully murdering an innocent, making the others believe that someone else did it and then finishing everyone off. This more or less cemented him as an Ensemble Darkhorse in a matter of minutes.
  • In "Clutch", Trott manages to take out the final traitor by shooting him the head almost effortlessly at point blank range, with a sniper rifle.

  • The Team Fortress 2 Celebrity Deathmatch, round 2. After a humiliating defeat in round one, the RED Team (consisting of Simon, Lewis, and Notch, among others) begins a beautiful but short lived comeback as Simon/Honeydew (as a Heavy) massacres nearly all of the BLU Team, consisting of TotalBiscuit, 2 TF2 Staff members, Freddie Wong, and a TF2 pro on the BLU side.
    • And this year, their team actually wins the first round!
  • Their Youtube channel now has a billion views. That's pretty epic.
  • The fact that these guys have been able to get interviews with celebrities such as Warwick Davis and Jonathan Ross, and even had BBC articles written about them.
  • After running out of ammo for all his guns, Strippin knifes a boss for at least an hour.
  • Parv while playing Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs doesn't hesitate to walk into danger or trigger things he knows will probably cause monsters to appear.
  • Strippin breaking out of Turps' car boot, and chasing him away. Later, once the Yognews episode's done, he chases Turps across multiple parks, showing him clearly in control even though Turps has the head start. Then they settle it with a nice, cold beer.
  • Let's just say that everyone recognized Ridgedog when he went to Minecon in 2013.
  • Strippin royally kicking the ass of The Pursuer, without an Estus Flask no less.
  • Parv getting a Great Scientist on turn 13 of their "Top Tier" series for Civilization V.
  • During Zoey's runthrough of Pokemon X, she finally encounters the legendary beast Xerneas. Her response? To throw a Quick Ball at it on the first turn and catch it. Zoey is awesome at Pokémon in general, really.
    • She then tops off the above by defeating Lysandre without Xerneas. Special mention goes to Chou for taking down Gyarados and tanking an Outrage attack.
  • Pyrion deserves credit. For his first Civ game, he managed to utterly own Lewis, forcing the others into an Enemy Mine with him to take him down.
