Welcome back to Top Tier, Upcomer’s weekly tier list show where everyone is right and no one is happy.
This week, the Upcomer gang decided to rank something that most of us have seen in one way or another: Twitch metas.
Everything from the controversial hot tub streams to one of the platform’s most prolific moments in Twitch Plays Pokémon; hosts Tyler “Fionn” Ezberger, Yinsu Collins, Nick Ray and Colin McNeil breakdown which metas changed everything for the better and which will be a stain on the website’s history.
Was the Fall Guys craze as special as we remember? Or were we just desperate for a distraction at the time? How bad are the ear licking streams dominating the ASMR category right now? You might be surprised at where some of Twitch’s most memorable metas end up on our list.
