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.
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.”

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.
