There is always a Twitch emote that mimics an expression that Twitch users may identify with. Whether it's the MonkaS emote, which causes goosebumps, or the KEKW emote, which shouts with laughter. Learn about one of Twitch's first emotes and what ResidentSleeper means by scrolling down.
WHAT DOES RESIDENTSLEEPER MEAN ON TWITCH?

ResidentSleeper emote depicts a man's face that seems to be sleeping in an uncomfortably unpleasant position. That's precisely what happened to streamer Oddler when he tried to complete a 72-hour Resident Evil gaming marathon in late September 2012.

 

Oddler performed well to maintain his alertness for 66 hours until his eyes gave up. For an hour, his buddy watched him sleep as he stayed still in his famous stance. Oddler never really finished the three-day challenge, but he did immortalize his visage as a live meme and Twitch emote.

 

Completely, the Twitch community chose Oddler's emote. Neither Oddler nor a member of the Twitch crew chose it to be an official emote on the service.

Oddler's sleeping look may be seen in the ResidentSleeper emote. Basically, that is all there is to it. Even a common person may understand that it signifies fatigue, lack of sleep, or boredom.

 

As the definition of ResidentSleeper implies, it is often spammed when a streamer is monotonous. A well-known streamer named AdmiralBulldog, for instance, formerly played the game PLAYERUNKNOWN BATTLEGROUNDS (PUBG), although he did it passively and mostly by snaking about or hiding in corners. Eventually, his fans bombarded him with requests to play DOTA 2 with the ResidentSleeper emote.

HOW TO USE RESIDENTSLEEPER

 

The ResidentSleeper emote is mostly safe to employ, however there are a few instances when caution is advised. One of such is the previously mentioned AdmiralBulldog Twitch broadcast. The broadcaster decided that enough was enough and banned the ResidentSleeper emote from his channel after it established a mainstay at his streams. You risk getting a severe stream ban if you use the emote even once!

 

AdmiralBulldog first banned the emote in 2017. This happened just after he became irate when someone in his chat told him they didn't like watching the game he was playing. The streamer sometimes used the phrase "ResidentSleeper" to entice his audience into typing it. While victims are blacklisted, savvy viewers who avoided the trap will write the JeBaited emoticon.

 

Except for AdmiralBulldog's broadcast, it's safe to type ResidentSleeper on any Twitch channel, particularly when a streamer engages in monotonous activities. Although the ResidentSleeper emote is not as well-liked in 2020 as the Pogchamp, Kappa, or Pepega emotes, it is still used outside of Twitch. Use it on gaming forums or even in a discussion among gamers!

Long forgotten in regular ranked games, even more, forgotten by Pro ‘ss, but not completely forgotten by the hero's fans. With each arrival of a new meta, some characters are forgotten and become not so popular, while some, on the contrary, their pick rate and win rate are growing, which should not be surprising because this is how Dota 2 works. Today we will analyze whether Elder Titan really dropped out of the game and lost to its direct competitors in every position, why the hero died and has 1.4% of the Dotabuff pick rate, and let's think, wasn't he written off too early?
