At 12:01, Twitch Partner bans tracking account ‘StreamerBans’ put out the notification on Twitter that Doc had been banned. Fans of the personality were left shocked by the abrupt news.

While it has not been confirmed, 100 Thieves ‘Classy’ theorized that it could be due to DMCA takedown issues which has recently plagued streamers on the platform.

“Just saw @drdisrespect is banned on Twitch. Including the fact he hasn’t done anything recently, can only assume it was a DMCA related ban?? If so…. We’re all so f**ked, he tweeted.

Personalities such as ‘Fuslie’ and JakeNBake were given multiple strikes earlier in the month for playing licensed music during broadcast dating back to 2017.

This isn’t the first time the Two-Time has found himself in hot water with Twitch. In June 2019, he was in the middle of an IRL stream at popular gaming convention E3, when his cameraman accidentally followed him into a public bathroom.

The Amazon-owned company took the broadcast down, and gave Dr Disrespect a 30-day ban. Guy Beahm who portrays the larger than life character, issued an apology on his personal account stating, “We wanted to capture an adventure, unfortunately we took that adventure into the wrongs areas unaware of the legalities surrounding it.”

Doc currently has boasts over 4 million followers, and consistently draws in over 50k viewers each time he goes live, making him one of the most-watched channels on the platform.

xQc challenges Forsen to beat his Minecraft speedrun time

Despite releasing over a decade ago, Minecraft continues to be one of the most popular games on Twitch. In 2020, streamers like xQc have been trying to beat the game in record time in front of viewers.

After months of previous attempts – some that ended in disaster – the stars finally aligned for Lengyel on October 13 when he managed to complete the title incredibly fast.

Using the Nether bed trick to slay the Ender Dragon quickly, the former Overwatch pro was able to take down the final boss and achieve a speedrun record of just 33 minutes. “Holy s**t!” he screamed as beast died.

Elated, the star exploded in celebration over his new time. “33! Beat that s**t!” He then hilariously called out Forsen who has also been speedrunning Minecraft. “Beat it, Forsen! Beat it! 33:49! Nearly sub-30!” he said, slamming his fists on the desk.

xQc challenged the fellow Twitch personality to attempt to beat his record. “Beat that, baby! Forget it. Forget variety, Forsen. It will take months to beat that s**t!  Forget the variety streams, dude.”

According to Lengyel, everything seemed to just click and fall into place during his latest Minecraft run. He was even able to achieve a “perfect” kill of the Ender Dragon using his strategy, which he had been practicing in the past month.

On October 14, Forsen responded to the challenge simply stating, “Alright. Alright. Let’s do it!” Only time will tell if the Swede will be able to match or beat xQc’s incredible 33-minute time, but the rivalry has been entertaining to say the least.
