YouTuber David Dobrik is one of the world’s most popular online entertainers, best known for his high-energy vlogs and crazy stunts with the “vlog squad” — as well as his heartwarming generosity.

During his time on YouTube, Dobrik has garnered a whopping 16.9 million subscribers, due in part to his philanthropic acts of charity alongside his fast-paced viral videos.

Having given away cars, cash, and even entire homes to his friend group, the YouTuber is touted as one of the platform’s good Samaritans alongside names like Mr Beast — but this time, he took his goodwill to an entirely new level.

YouTube star David Dobrik brought holiday cheer during the summer season to his fans during a trying global crisis.

With the current global crisis in mind, Dobrik has taken a long hiatus away from uploading regular content as of late, considering that his videos would be far different without the help of his currently-quarantined squad of buddies.

However, he broke this hiatus with a video on April 24, where he gathered with a small group of helpers (including assistant Natalie and friend Jason Nash) to play Santa Claus.

He surprised random bystanders by gifting them gaming consoles and cash taped beneath frisbees as they drove down the street, sending the strangers into shock with random acts of kindness.

Fans were stunned by David Dobrik’s incredible gift, which he strategically hit in their merchandise orders.

That wasn’t even the most shocking part of his video: Dobrik even hand-delivered merchandise orders with a special twist, hiding a check worth $10,000 inside each package.

The YouTube star tasked the fans with catching their orders via a T-shirt gun for minimal physical contact, leading to a slew of humorous antics before they opened their packages.

That’s not all; Dobrik even went the extra mile and gave away a slew of free cars on top of the checks, sending one fan into tears.

His insane video quickly went viral on Twitter shortly after being uploaded, with fans across the net congratulating the YouTuber for his generosity and much-needed giveaways during a time of crisis for many.

 

While he clarified that he wouldn’t be uploading content until the world is in a better place, Dobrik’s latest video is warming the hearts of fans all across the globe in a time that has left many worrying about the future.

Call of Duty

Dr Disrespect explains how Black Ops Cold War could be “so much more fun”

Dr Disrespect has chimed in on the much-maligned SBMM system used in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and other titles, and although he doesn’t blame Treyarch, the Doc is less than impressed with the system and wants it removed.

Dr Disrespect is all about violence, speed, and momentum. However, he hasn’t been able to spread his wings in Black Ops Cold War and fly like the eagle he was born to be, and he blames it all on SBMM.

SBMM, which stands for skill-based matchmaking, is a system used in many popular games to try and balance out lobbies.

Some players and developers think it’s a good thing, but many others believe it tends to ‘punish’ higher-skilled players like Dr Disrespect. It throws them into lobbies with other elite players, which results in ‘sweaty’ games where everyone is good and trying really hard to win.

The game becomes more serious and less casual, and it demands more effort, which is less than ideal for streamers like the Doc, who want to entertain.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is one of many games that uses SBMM.

Dr Disrespect has never been one to hold his tongue and mince his words on matters important to him. In his latest stream, he had a frustrating time playing Black Ops Cold War due to SBMM and shared his thoughts.

Man, that SBMM, what a… what a…” he said, struggling to find the words to summarize his rage. “SBMM results to exact same fight every single time.” It’s a sentiment shared by players from many different games and skill brackets.

“It has nothing to do with… game design,” he added.

“Treyarch knocks it out the park… I just think it has something to do with a lot of the technical stuff… I would take that tech out.”

Dr Disrespect isn’t one to hold back on his opinions, especially when it comes to games.

Dr Disrespect knows that it isn’t Treyarchs fault. Instead, he refers to a “third-party” who works with them and “manages all the data and everything.” He says, “they’re able to make all these tweaks, and all that stuff,” and the fact that SBMM is implemented at all is “such a bummer.”

“I want some sheep in my lobbies,” he said. “I want a couple triple peekers. The game could like just be so much more fun. I don’t understand why they have it.”

The related segment begins at 3:38:30 in the video below.

Dr Disrespect isn’t the first person to express his concerns about SBMM, and he won’t be the last. However, the Doc is a pillar in the gaming community. He has also been involved in some behind-the-scenes level design, so his opinion has some weight.

Either way, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is still loads of fun. SBMM might even help you become a better player if you’re willing to embrace it.
