Destiny 2 streamer becomes the most-subbed solo channel on Twitch

Destiny streamer Sean “GLADD” Gallagher has become the most-subbed individual channel on Twitch in February 2020, according to metrics tracking site Twitchtracker.com.

Previously, the most-subbed individual streamer on the platform was former Overwatch pro Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel, until GLADD moved ahead of his ranking on February 5.

Even though he’s currently the most-subbed individual channel with 32,443 subs (at the time of writing), the channel with the highest amount of subscriptions on the site is GamesDoneQuick with 36,579.

GLADD managed to pull ahead of xQc and Summit1G in February.

GamesDoneQuick is the top-subbed channel overall, probably in part because of the Awesome Games Done Quick charity event, which only just wrapped up on January 12, 2020.

GLADD’s subs seem to almost entirely be paid, according to TwitchTracker, in contrast to GDQ, where over half of the subs were the free ones included in Prime.

“You guys f*cking did it,” GLADD told fans on Twitter. “#1 most subbed individual Twitch channel, worldwide. Very watery-eyed right now.” 

“Thanks to all who’ve stuck around since day 1, and to those who just started tuning in,” he continued. “Life is all about the journey and it’s been quite a ride with YOU!”

Unlike followers, Twitch streamers’ subscriber counts aren’t directly available to the public, and many fans have to simply guess at the number of subscribers content creators have gained while on the platform.

Sites like TwitchTracker organize the Twitch’s top broadcasters by their subscriber count, splitting subs by type – and while their numbers do come with a certain margin of error, they have been fairly reliable, as seen when xQc made it to the top of the sub counts in October 2019.

According to TwitchTracker, all of GLADD’s 32,443 were paid (that means no Prime subs) and, interestingly enough, 21,890 of those paid subs were gifted ones.

Twitch allows users to purchase up to 100 subscriptions at once and gift them to other viewers on the same channel, which doesn’t make those subs less legitimate by any means – but is an interesting detail.

GLADD and his chat were obviously overjoyed about the accomplishment.

xQc was right behind GLADD with 30,865 subs, followed by Summit1G in 4th with 30,500 subs. Surprisingly enough, streaming star DrDisRespect was all the way down in 8th, with 23,459 subs.

After months of back-and-forth, Jake Paul and Nate Robinson are finally stepping into the squared circle for their highly-anticipated boxing matchup. Here’s what you need to know. 

YouTubers strapping on boxing gloves and squaring up with one another was a trend kicked off by KSI and Joe Weller back in 2018. Since then, the concept has exploded – including KSI forging rivalries with the Paul brothers and fighting Logan Paul in a professional bout in Los Angeles. 

Typically, it has been all about a YouTuber fighting another content creator, but Jake Paul’s next fight is a little different. He’s fighting former NBA star Nate Robinson on the undercard of the Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. exhibition bout – which is sure to be a spectacle itself. So, here’s what you need to know.

Paul and Robinson have been going back-and-forth for months, with their fight being delayed previously.

What time is Jake Paul vs Nate Robinson?

Despite the attention the YouTuber brings, the Paul vs Robinson bout isn’t the main event of the evening, so it’s hard to nail down an exact start time. 

Some reports have suggested that the pair should make their ring walks at around 4 am GMT on Sunday, November 29. In the US, that’ll still be Saturday, November 28 at 8 pm PST/11 pm EST, given that the main event is due to start an hour later at 9 pm PST. 

Of course, this could change given the results of the previous fights, so if you don’t want to miss a moment of it, you’ll just have to tune in from the start

Jake Paul vs Nate Robinson PPV & live stream

Speaking of how to watch the fight, there are a handful of different ways – it just depends on where you are in the world.  In the UK, BT Sports have the rights to the fight, and it’ll cost 19.95 through their Box Office service. This is also available online in case you don’t want to watch it on TV in the early hours. 

If you’re in the United States, you’ll have to check with your cable provider, but it’ll cost $49.99 if they’re showing it. You can also access it through FiteTV and the TysonTriller website, which will also set you back $49.99.

Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr. fight card

As for who else is in action on the card, it’s not full of YouTubers or other side shows like some of Paul’s other fights, but instead, actual professional bouts. Former undefeated light-heavyweight star Badou Jack is in action, moving to Cruiserweight, while the highly anticipated matchup between Tyson and Jones Jr is set to be an electrifying affair.
