Dr Disrespect tells ‘Asmongold’ how to get “buff” after weird donation

Want to know how to get as buff as Fortnite even got uninstalled, (again.) That is, until a transition between games was interrupted by “Asmongold” (or someone claiming to be him), clearly on a break of his own from streaming. 

It seems that the World of Warcraft streamer, or his would-be impersonator, was getting tired of not exercising after streaming WoW Classic since the game’s launch, with little in the way of a break. So, who better to ask than the man who claims to have a 37-inch vertical leap?

G FuelDr Disrespect is known for his hilarious mid-stream skits.

“Hey Doc,” the donation message from ‘Asmongold’ began. “I’m 6’2”, 120 lbs, and all I do is play WoW all day, what can I do to get as buff as you?” 

The Doc took a long pause, sighed, and said that “Soy milk has been pretty good. Try some soy milk.”

The verdict’s still out if soy milk will help the classically lanky Asmongold get as buff as the so-called perfect human specimen Dr. Disrespect, but none the less, he had to ask. Of course, it’s entirely possible that the Doc was referring to Asmongold as a “soy boy,” a less than friendly term for someone who’s “weak.” More helpful workout advice would have been to do anything physical, or maybe watch his eating habits. 

Of course, this whole fiasco could have easily been Dr Disrespect trolling, as he’s been known to do. As a joke, he has also had “shroud” give him a phone call after impressive sniping incidents in PUBG, just as an example. 

Dr Disrespect has taken his share of shots at Asmongold, especially as he has not been shy about his feelings towards World of Warcraft throughout Classic’s launch. He tried to “commentate” over a stream of someone playing WoW but got frustrated soon into the clip, launching into one of his famous tirades and closing the video.

Asmongold has been making his way through Onyxia’s Lair on his Warrior in WoW Classic, among dealing with trolls that have been out to get him on the streaming realm of Faerlina.

His channel has seen massive growth in the past few months as WoW Classic launched, fueled in large part by the nostalgia of the general gaming public to at least see the game they once invested literal weeks of game time in, if not play themselves. 

It seems the “feud” between the two will continue for some time.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
