Battlefield V Firestorm, with a brutal roasting of his fellow Twitch streamer. 

The pair are two of the most well-known streamers on Twitch, and have often crossed paths in first person shooters, streaming a number of battle royale games such as Call of Duty: Blackout, PUBG and Apex Legends. 

Their friendly rivalry started to heat up once again on March 25, when Shroud revealed that he thinks The Doc is unable to keep up with the pace anymore. 

EA DiceShroud thinks the pace of Battlefield V Firestorm is better suited to Dr Disrespect.

“I can definitely see Doc liking this,” he told his viewers while playing the first battle royale game of the Battlefield franchise. 

“It’s more slow and methodical, like he can say he’s all about speed, violence and momentum but he can’t keep up with it. This is like a very good pace.” 

Shroud might think that Dr Disrespect has lost a step in recent times, but The Doc was on-hand with some roasting of his own when he found out about the comments during his own March 25 broadcast. 

After being pressed about not being able to keep up the pace by a donator, he said: “Talk to his scooter about pace. Talk to his scooter about pacing. Aww, baby!”

Shroud was involved in a scooter accident on March 11 which forced him to have surgery on his elbow, preventing him from streaming on Twitch for a short period of time. 

While many would perhaps have steered clear of firing back at Grzesiek following his accident, it was clear that he wasn’t going to get the same sympathy from Dr Disrespect – especially after suggesting he was losing his touch. 

He never stopped there, either. To close out his stream, Dr Disrespect decided to address Shroud -again – very directly. 

“I actually enjoyed Battlefield 5, a nice change of pace.I can do it all Shroud!” he said. “I know what I’m doing. I can play any game and look real good doing it. I’m not too happy. I mean, I’m happy, but not too happy with you [Shroud]”. 

What twist will we see next in this rivalry? Well, we’ll have to wait and see.
