Popular Twitch streamer Dr Disrespect was left red in the face after trying to mock his friend for making a tip video, before discovering that he didn’t even know about it. 

When it comes to entertaining fans on Twitch, The Doc dominates by matching his top-level production with highly skilled gameplay.

Yet, things don’t always go his way. He’s shown an Fortnite Battle Royale, hilariously mocked the map layout in PlayerUnknown’s Battleground, and even raged at Apex Legends. However, all that fury could have been avoided if he just looked into his computer settings.

G FUELThe Doc is one of the most popular faces on Twitch.

During his July 15 stream, The Doc had uncovered a video from one of his regular battle royale partners, Team SoloMid’s Viss. The clip showed Viss making a brief tutorial about improving aim in games – centering around switching off mouse acceleration.

The Two-Time quickly laughed this off as a video for newbies and even mocked his friend. “Come on Viss! Everyone knows this. Come on Viss, everyone knows to turn that off man,” he added. 

However, the tables quickly turned on The Doc when he opened up his mouse set-up for all of his viewers to see. Despite claiming he knew that mouse acceleration should be off, the streamer had left it on – leaving him red faced in front of thousands of loyal viewers as he sheepishly turned it off.

After realizing that he’d made a major mistake, the Two-Time quickly cut to a commercial about Twitch Prime before getting ready for a game of Apex Legends.

Once he returned from that brief intermission, The Doc’s viewers continued to spam laughter in his chat about what had just unfolded, but he completely ignored and acted as nothing had even happened. 

Of course, it didn’t affect the streamer’s performance in any way as he marched on through games of Apex Legends for the next four hours – snapping enemies with the trademark violence, speed and momentum. 

However, maybe next time he’ll be a little more wary of trying to laugh off helpful tips. Some of them are quite useful and not everybody knows about them.

Popular music streamer and DragonForce guitarist Herman Li has had his Twitch account banned on October 27, with the reason still unknown.

In a shock move, Twitch has suspended popular musician Herman Li from streaming on the platform, which he uses to provide insight into the life of professional musicians, as well as to shred his guitar like the metal God that he is.

Known for being the lead guitarist of Grammy-winning heavy rock group DragonForce – the masterminds behind the infamous ‘Through the Fire and Flames’ that dominated every Guitar Hero players’ childhood, Li has been praised over the years for his musical talents.

The guitarist has become somewhat of an icon on the platform, so it shocked fans to see his channel was no longer available.

Li has become not only a DragonForce icon, but a Twitch one too.

Is this a DMCA ban?

At the time of writing, the reason for Li’s ban is unknown. Twitch does not comment on moderation decisions as a matter of privacy.

Speculation though, is that the artist has been banned as part of the new wave of DMCA strikes that have been sweeping across Twitch. As a musical streamer, DMCA makes the lives of musicians particularly difficult. Many have and may be banned in the future due to these new regulations – even if they are playing their own music.

In April, Li was livid as Universal muted his music on YouTube.

Neither Li nor Twitch have elaborated on why the ban has taken place. No matter the reason though, this news comes will come as a shock to both Li and his fans, especially when he addressed the Twitch ban situation directly on stream back in June, reassuring other streamers that using his band’s music would not result in a DMCA strike.

Li stated that: “We know all these crazy things are happening on Twitch, people getting banned, people getting taken down, DMCA, I can tell you, you can play any song from the latest DragonForce album, Extreme Power Metal, and you will not get a strike. I assure you, you will be ok. Because we are very good friends with our people from the record label, who also love Twitch, so you will not have a problem.”

We will update this story if more details on the reason behind Li’s suspension become clear.
