news culture Pixel War: The War Is Over on Reddit, Here’s the View in Ultra HD
This was undoubtedly the event of this beginning of the week: the Pixel War marked the history of the Internet thanks to a mobilization of significant Internet users, major streamers in support. If you want to see the result, you’ve come to the right place.
Pixel war is central
We told you about it yesterday : Reddit hosted a major event and made headlines around the world. The goal was simple: every five minutes internet users can place a pixel on a gigantic fresco (originally white) to make one or more drawings together.
And the least we can say is that the formula has paid off with a huge enthusiasm from communities around the world. Very quick, this “Pixel War” has motivated ten (probably hundreds?) thousands of people and, more generally, countries to compete against each other to build the most impressive virtual work and the most representative of its culture.
Very quick, France has taken up much of the virtual area, with a huge French flag occupying a large space visible to all† The other countries then went out of their way to put a spoke in its wheels, for example by redrawing over it, creating an ultra-publicized “World Streamer War” output.
Thanks to all the soldiers, all the generals, admirals, screenwriters, graphic designers and everyone else.
And above all: Long live France! pic.twitter.com/us9tmSdOUp

A gigantic fresco in 6K
After hours and hours of organized and tireless drawing performed in France by streamers Kameto, Zerator and other tenors in the field, the Pixel War ended today, around 1:00 AM. The opportunity to admire the extraordinary rendering in 6K, with hundreds and hundreds of references to web culture, modern, sports and so on. A mind-boggling work, transcribed here in high resolution that could well be used for printing by the most interested.

By the way, the videographer Mehdi Moussaïd of the YouTube channel “Fouloscopie” shared a graph showing the frequency of color change of the different pixels. : the chance to see that it is indeed the French zone (bottom left) that has attracted the most attention… and sometimes even the misunderstanding of our European neighbours.
This graph shows how often different pixels change color across the canvas. The more red it is, the more the pixel has changed.
