100T CouRage hits major milestone after move to YouTube Gaming

100 Thieves content creator Jack ‘CouRageJD’ Dunlop just crossed an impressive milestone months after his switch to YouTube Gaming.

CouRage made the difficult choice of leaving his dedicated audience behind on Twitch and joining the greener pasture on YouTube back in 2019.

It wasn’t a complete rebuild, however, as he still had a sizable viewerbase on YouTube already that he could capitalize on. Despite the majority of his content on the platform being Twitch highlights before his move, he still had a dedicated audience.

CouRage has some very popular friends.

On January 27, just a few months after his announcement, 100 Thieves revealed CouRage crossed the two million subscriber count on YouTube in a congratulatory tweet.

The CouRageous are now 2 million strong on YouTube,” said the organization. “Congratulations CouRageJD on creating such a positive and dedicated community. The takeover continues.”

While he’s still quite a way out from catching PewDiePie as the top YouTuber, this milestone is no small feat as very few make it this far.

CouRage made the leap to YouTube in November 2019 and hasn’t looked back. In fact, he ended up being the first major streamer to go from Twitch to YouTube exclusively.

Although it happened at a much later date, his fellow 100 Thieves content creator Rachell ‘Valkyrae’ Hofstetter also joined him. These might have appeared to be surprising moves when they happened, but things become a lot clearer when you look at the ties 100 Thieves CEO Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag has with YouTube, notably the head of gaming Ryan ‘Fwiz’ Wyatt.

For the time being, there are no other plans for other 100 Thieves creators to move over to YouTube, but it wouldn’t be strange to see that happen at some point.

If CouRage is able to keep his hot streak going, then there should be no reason we won’t be seeing him cross his next major milestone in the very near future.

KSI calls out Jake Paul after YouTuber KO’s Nate Robinson in boxing bout

It’s been no time at all, but Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji has already called out Jake Paul ahead of their prospective bout at Madison Square Garden, saying that after his performance against Nate Robinson, Paul stands no chance.

It was the fight everyone had their eyes on November 28. On the undercard of Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr, YouTuber Jake Paul was set to bout with NBA star Nate Robinson.

What we got instead was a bloodbath. Robinson was trounced by Paul, getting knocked down multiple times before Paul laid the final blow in the second round. Robinson barely laid a glove on Paul despite coming out all guns blazing.

While millions watched, there was one spectator on the sidelines with more on the line than most ⁠— Jake Paul’s next prospective opponent, KSI.

The YouTuber has already faced off against Paul’s older brother Logan, beating the American not once but twice. Jake fancies his chances a little bit better, but KSI wasn’t impressed by the younger brother’s skills against Robinson.

As soon as the fight ended, KSI already started the war back up with the Pauls. “I saw nothing special from Jake lol. Soon come,” he said on Twitter.

The thinly-veiled threat at Jake Paul is alluding to their prospective bout at Madison Square Garden, pending the current global situation.

Paul has been pretty vocal about making sure the fight goes ahead, saying he has a point to prove against the British YouTuber. “KSI vs Jake Paul is 100% gonna happen. If I die without that happening, I would be so upset. It has to happen, for the culture,” he said in September.

While Paul didn’t direct address KSI post-fight ⁠— instead calling out Conor McGregor for a bout ⁠— the rivalry between the two YouTubers is fierce.

One can only hope they do actually make good on their promise and get in the ring.
