Popular streaming personality Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop announced that he’s upping sticks from Twitch, and is headed to YouTube to broadcast exclusively on the platform.

Speculation surrounding the 100 Thieves member’s move had been swirling around for a few days before his departure from Twitch, after he tweeted out that fans need to “get ready” for an announcement.

While fans originally thought the streamer would be moving to Mixer, CouRage announced an exclusive partnership with Google-owned platform YouTube on November 4.

The 100 Thieves star announced his transfer from Twitch to YouTube with a comical skit video where he acted out scenes from different TV shows such as “Jack’s Anatomy” (Grey’s Anatomy), and “CouRage Five-Nine” (Brooklyn Nine-Nine), and even had his own ASMR channel.

Co-stars Matthew ‘Nadeshot‘ Haag and Rachell ‘Valkyrae‘ Hofstetter were also in the clip, and acted as though they thought CouRage was leaving the organization, not Twitch, and rewarded him with a cheeky slap in the face for “scaring” them.

It was then revealed that his debut stream on YouTube Gaming would be held on November 5 – just a day after the announcement.

Friends and fellow streamers took to social media to congratulate CouRage on his big transition and departure from Twitch.

“WELCOME!” YouTube star Jimmy ‘MrBeast’ Donaldson tweeted in response to the news. “I LOVE YOU!”

“I LOVE YOU MORE!” the 100T star replied. “I’m going to randomly show up at your house to be in one of your challenge videos.”

Fortnite star Turner ‘Tfue‘ Tenney also shared his well wishes with the streamer. “Congrats Jack! I love you, and I’m excited for the first stream!” he tweeted, alongside a crying emoji and a heart. 

“Thanks, Turner! It’s lit,” CouRage tweeted in response.

The streamer’s deal is the latest in a string of exclusive contracts between streamers and platforms, with Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek, and Cory ‘KingGothalion’ Michael all moving to Mixer.

Fans originally speculated that CouRage could have also been in talks to move to the Microsoft-owned platform as his Mixer page teased a potential transfer – a great ruse to throw people off the YouTube scent.

Dr Disrespect trolls mobile gamers and players take the bait

Dr Disrespect has taken a cheeky swipe at mobile gamers on Twitter, asking how anybody can even consider it to be a “serious” way to play – but players are fighting their corner. 

The Two-Time has had a whirlwind 2020 by all accounts. He’s moved platforms from Twitch to YouTube, and while some might have expected his influence on the gaming world to perhaps decrease in that move – he’s still one of the best at stirring the pot.

Of course, a lot of franchises that made their name on PC and console, like Call of Duty, PUBG, FIFA and Fortnite, have brought their games to iOS and Android.

Though, Doc doesn’t seem to be a fan.

Dr Disrespect takes aim at mobile gamers

Dr Disrespect has turned into a mainstream symbol of the streaming world, and sure knows how to get people talking.

On November 26, literally out of nowhere in vintage Doc style, he decided to joke about the idea of playing games on mobile.

He said: “I’ve got 3 state-of-the-art 1ms speed color calibrated monitors staring at me, a keyboard with titan switch optical keystrokes and a mouse that weighs literally nothing backed by a 200k multi pc setup….and you have the guts to tell me mobile gaming is a serious thing?”

As you might expect, he’s sparked a huge debate in the replies – with some arguing for and against his point of view.

One user, by the name of Yettobegin, said: “Well Dr.D not everyone can afford a good PC setup and that’s why mobile gaming is so popular in southern Asian countries.. Anyways I don’t hear any mobile gamers fighting for validation as a “Gamer”.. If u want to play in mobile and have fun who cares?!”

If you thought that was a strong response, wait until you see this.

Tribe Gaming’s Ferg challenged the self-professed best video gamer in the world to a 1v1 in CoD Mobile, with $100,000 on the line. As of writing, that has not been accepted, but it shows there’s certainly a lot of people out there wanting to prove him wrong.

This was not the only challenge, with Elijah Jackson offering a $10,000 wager of his own.

XSET Juicy, who plays PUBG Mobile competitively, also fired back – saying maybe gaming on mobile is too “difficult” for Doc to handle.

Nothing might come from this or Dr Disrespect actually might take up one of the offers, in a way to shoot down mobile gamers who stand in his way.

No matter what, though, he’s certainly achieved his objective of drumming up some debate. What happens next should be interesting.
