Dr Disrespect scooped the award for Streamer of the Year at the official Esports awards 2019, but when asked by fans during his first stream of the New Year, he had another personality in mind for the accolade – summit. 

The self-proclaimed best video gamer in the world has spent the last year improving his production value and trying out a number of different games to grow his channel’s following – or as he calls them, members of his Champions Club.

His entertaining streams have been recognized not just in awards ceremonies but by many fellow streamers on Twitch during the course of the last year. Although, given the choice, he revealed during a January 1 broadcast that he actually wouldn’t pick himself for streamer of the year.

Respawn EntertainmentDr Disrespect has worked with some of the biggest streamers in the world, but who was his favorite in 2019?
 

At first, it appeared that the Two-Time blockbuster video game champion was going to reveal his favorite three streamers. However, he said he needed to think a little more about second and third place, with one name standing out for the top spot.

Doc admitted that his decision was chiefly made on the basis that he wouldn’t like to sit down and watch his own streams back, but if he had to pick somebody else, it would be Jaryd ‘summit1g’ Lazar.

“In my opinion for 2019, [if I had to choose] my personal top streamer to watch – because obviously watching my own vods probably comes off weird and selfish, you know, especially if Mrs. Assassin comes in and I’m watching a video of myself every single night, it would just be weird,” he said. “The number one would be summit.”

 

Dr Disrespect gave honorable mentions to Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney, Tim ‘TimTheTatman’ Betar, and Félix ‘xQc’ Lengyel, but went on to explain his decision to pick summit over them.

“Summit1g for me. The reason why? He’s just got a great blend of everything you can get from a streamer, in terms of energy levels, his gameplay is obviously high level, and number three – and I think this is an important one,” he said. “He popularized a variety of games that weren’t, I don’t know, that popular. Let’s be honest.”

 

A great example of that would be Sea of Thieves, a pirate game released on Xbox and available on PC platform too, where the streamer was drawing around 80,000 viewers to sail around the high seas – not to mention the GTA RP craze he helped contribute towards on Twitch.

Whether or not summit1g will go on to scoop an award for streamer of the year next time around remains to be seen, yet the levels of success he’s achieving on the platform is highly commendable. So much so that we included him in our Top 10 streamers of the decade list, and clearly Dr Disrespect is also a huge fan of his work.

FaZe Clan is one of the best-known gaming and content houses on YouTube, and they have some incredible cars to boot.

Billed as “The world’s most subscribed gaming team” FaZe Clan has built itself a reputation as one of the best-known esports teams on the planet. Since its creation in 2010, the team has dominated in Call Of Duty, CS:GO, and more.

With their rise to fame, naturally, their income streams have grown substantially. Therefore, many members of the FaZe team have splashed the cash on awesome cars to showcase their success, here are some of the highlights from each member.

FaZe Clan cars

Faze Adapt

FaZe Adapt has one of the most heavily-customized cars from the clan.

Starting off with what is without a doubt one of the coolest cars in the FaZe Clan collection, Adapt is the owner of a stunning custom Nissan GT-R. Featured on the iconic West Coast Customs channel, this GT-R is a long way from how it left the factory.

With a custom FaZe-themed wrap, new wheels, and custom interior matching the design of the outside, this is one serious ride. Assuming the engine has remained stock, the GT-R puts out an impressive 485bhp from its twin-turbo V6, with the power going to all four wheels.

Faze Rain

FaZe Rain enjoys his “real life Batmobile” in the form of a McLaren 570s.

Adapt isn’t the only member of the FaZe Clan to have a supercar. Rain also has his own high-performance car in the form of his black McLaren 570s. This British-built supercar delivers 562hp to the rear wheels from its twin-turbo V8 engine, resulting in a 0-60 time of just over 3 seconds, on to a top speed of 204mph.

In complete contrast to the McLaren is his other car – a Tesla Model X. This all-electric SUV is perfect for cruising around in silence, but is still cool enough and certainly fast enough to make it the envy of many other YouTubers.

FaZe Megga and FaZe Blaze’s Teslas

A number of the FaZe Clan members own Teslas, such as Blaze and his Model 3.

At only 15 years old, Megga is one of the youngest members. Despite his age, he has already bought his “dream car” in the form of a Tesla Model 3. Clearly the members of FaZe Clan like to go fast AND be eco-conscious.

Not only does Megga own a Tesla, but so does fellow clan member FaZe Blaze, who also owns a Tesla Model 3.

FaZe Rug

G63 AMG FaZe RugFaZe Rug has a G63 AMG similar to this, but in white.

FaZe Rug has owned a number of cool cars over the years, but currently owns a Mercedes-AMG G Wagon, which was recently ‘destroyed’ as part of a prank. Having admitted his want for a Rolls-Royce Phantom, it may only be a matter of time before we see him add one to his garage.

FaZe Clan team cars

Long-time viewers will remember the custom FaZe-Themed Lincoln Navigator.

While a number of the members have individual rides, there is also a ‘team’ car for the FaZe members. Their custom Nissan Armada wrapped in FaZe colors has been spotted a number of times at press events.

Long-time FaZe followers will also remember the customized Lincoln Navigator that they had back in New York City, but that is now long-gone.
