The streaming platform had to find a replacement for the iconic emoticon

At the beginning of the year, the PogChamp emoticon from was deleted. The reason was Ryan’s statements “Gootecks” Gutierrez, who publicly called for a continuation of the riots in the US Capitol. Ryan is the one shown on the original emoticon. Details about the whole incident can be found in our previous article.

The streaming platform decided to at least partially improve the unfortunate situation, and therefore gave the community the opportunity to vote on which emoticon PogChamp will replace. This is a smart solution on the part of Twitch. Who else should decide on its new form than those who will subsequently use it the most.

The winner of the commutation competition was a version called “KomodoHype”, depicting a Komodo dragon in an iconic form with an open mouth. The animal emoticon had to beat several familiar faces on the way to victory.

KomodoHype is now available under its original name, but also under the abbreviation “PogChamp”. All that remains is to wish the monitor a lot of luck. Unlike Ryan, he wouldn’t have to get involved in political issues, though, one never knows.
