PogChamp Emote Meaning
I’m so excited, and I just can’t hide it…I mean, look at my face. It’s an open book!
Those of you who are new to the Twitch community and gaming world, in general, must have pondered on the questions such as what is pogchamp? what does pogchamp mean? and the like.
I am sure you have resorted to the internet search and have found that urban dictionary pogchamp definition goes something like this, “It is a twitch emote that is used to show excitement”.
This is kinda bland if you ask me.
Only a true and hard-core Twitch streamer knows how to use this one.
And, if you want to get there fast, this is how to use pogchamp properly.
Yes, it is true that pog champ is used to express excitement and surprise by the situation you find yourself in.
This is all there is to the pogchamp meaning.
I got you there for a minute, didn’t I?
Just messing with ya!
If you want to explore the full array of meanings, try using popchamp in a sarcastic fashion. Trust me, this one is hilarious!
It’s like you’re telling you’re genuinely surprised by someone’s gaming misfortune while you’re actually relishing it.
This is mean in a way, but still hilarious AF!
At times, streamers can’t be bothered to upload the pogchamp emote itself, so they resort to the short version.
For example, they would just type out pog to express the same meaning, i.e. the message behind pogchamps.
Some streamers also tend to mistype the emote as pawg champ, and it’s kinda cute!
The Story Behind
If you are still struggling to visualize the emote (those of you who are gamers-beginners), do you remember the 2010 interview between Mike Ross and Ryan “Gootecks” Gutierrez?
The one when the latter laughed at a cameraman who knocked over his tripod?
Yup, that’s the face – the face of genuine surprise and excitement at the same time.
Although this happened as far in the past as in 2011, pogchanp was uploaded to Twitch only later.
Still, it can safely be perceived as one of the oldest Twitch emotes.
Now that you have the answer to what is a pog champ question, treat your playmates dearly with it.
And, don’t get mad when they treat you back!
PogChamp is Changing Every Month
So, after recent attacks on the US Capitol, when PogChamp star Ryan had some inappropriate comments (asking about more “civil unrest” even though a women died), Twitch decided to remove Ryan’s face as a PogChamp and change it daily until we get a new face behind this most popular emote!
In other words, we are going to use different PogChamp each day for who-knows-how-long.
