Where can I find your playlist?

I am primarily using eight playlists at the moment:

I'm a subscriber! How do I connect to the Discord server?

Follow this link. Make sure you connect Discord with your Twitch in "User settings" -> "Connections"

How did you get the netgraph in the top right corner?

Paste this in your Config.cfg: You may need to tweak some of the values to fit your screen.

What is the connection information for your TeamSpeak server?

IP: -- Password: night

What is Divine Courage?

I play a random hero and have to go for a specific randomised itembuild. Check out all the details and rules and try it yourself here.

Where is your nickname from?

I was playing a game of Counter-Strike, and one of the players on my team did a good effort but ultimately lost the round (1v3 situation or something, it's many, many years ago). I was about to say "det var (that was) synderen" (synd/nederen ~ "pity"/"shame" combined), and I thought it was a little funny that those two words combined made another word ("synderen", which literally translated means "the sinner"), so I kept it.

Without knowing the backstory, every Dane will just think of it as "the sinner" which I didn't pick for the obvious connotations of the word, and of course people do make fun of it from time to time :p.

Some extra info, "hvem er synderen" ("who is the sinner" in Danish, probably the saying the word is used in the most) translates to "who is responsible for/who did something [undesirable]" (can be anything from eating the last cookie that wasn't intended for you to being responsible for an oil spill), not necessarily anything connected with actual sin.
