Dr Disrespect’s recent ban from Twitch at E3 2019, a lot of questions have been raised about just how effective short-term bans are against bigger streamers on the platform.

In an episode of their new podcast featuring TimTheTatman, Nadeshot and CouRage discussed Dr Disrespect’s Twitch ban and the effect it would have on him overall.

100 Thieves / YouTubeThe CouRage and Nadeshot show is a brand new podcast by 100 Thieves.

Courage brought up the point that after streamers get banned from Twitch, the hype of their return streams usually make up for the time away from live streaming and in some cases benefit them, even referring to the likes of Tfue’s ban as a “vacation”, saying: “The return stream’s are insane […] It’s like your community rallies back around you, even if the ban is deserved.”

After agreeing with him, Nadeshot followed on to say that there is nothing Twitch could do to address that from being the case, to which CouRage responded by coming up with a way for the live streaming site to make the bans feel more like a punishment. “What if you get banned for 30 days and then your sub button is gone for another 30?” CouRage pondered. 

The thought behind removing the subscription button for 30 days would mean that the streamer would likely miss out on the large amount of subs which is usually seen after a streamer gets unbanned from Twitch.

“That’s actually a great point,” Nadeshot said, before later adding: “People are always drawn to controversy and drama, and in some ways that controversy and drama can help more than it hurts.”

Topic starts at 5:52 for mobile users.

The 100 Thieves owner followed up by using Dr Disrespect’s ban as an example of how a streamer could benefit from being banned on Twitch, estimating that his return stream from his bathroom ban will be one of the biggest ones he has ever had, saying “when Doc gets back his stream is going to be unbelievably big.”

There have been multiple times where streamers returning from a Twitch ban have seen massive success, such as Tyler1’s returning stream which broke records for the most viewed individual streamer at the time with around 400,000 viewers.

As of now, it is still unclear how long Dr Disrespect’s ban will span for, however, many fans are waiting his return to the live streaming site.

YouTuber and online personality Logan Paul is no stranger to the spotlight. Along with his brother Jake Paul, he is now one of the best-known content creators on the planet.

While not all of his news features are for the right reason, his success is undeniable with 22 million + followers. His car collection reflects this, and contains some very unusual and unique vehicles.

Logan Paul’s car collection

One of the best-known vehicles in Logan’s collection is his Mercedes G-Class G500 4×4 squared. While that may be a mouthful of a name, it is an undeniably impressive bit of kit.

Despite being dramatically styled from the factory, Logan took his 4×4 squared one step further and sent it to RDB LA for a number of personal customizations. Dubbed ‘The Yeti’ once completed, the imposing jeep was fitted with a massive snowplow – the first in the world to receive such treatment.

Alongside his ‘Yeti’ Logan also has another standout custom vehicle – the ‘Cool Bus’. A fully customized and kitted-out ex-school bus, this isn’t a regular vehicle for Logan but is instead used a way of promoting his merch.

Featuring a custom teal blue wrap, pumped-up sound system, heavy-duty front winch, and custom exhaust system, the Cool Bus is a serious piece of marketing kit.

Logan Paul exotic cars

While Logan isn’t one to splash out on expensive supercars in the same way his brother Jake does, he still has some interesting performance cars.

His Dodge Challenger is a V8-engined American ‘muscle car’ that is designed for all-out straight-line speed. While not extensively customized in the way his ‘Cool Bus’ is, Logan appears to wrap it to match his latest merch line designs and uses it as another way of promoting his range.

As well as the Challenger, which was given away to one lucky subscriber earlier this year, Logan also has a Polaris Slingshot for a ‘fun’ car. Purchased as a gift to himself on his birthday, it is likely to just be used as a casual car for fun rather than any serious motoring.

While he may not have the biggest collection in the world, Logan has more unique ways of showing his wealth, such as spending $200k on Pokemon cards. Either way, it is still a very unique collection of vehicles for the YouTube star.
