Twitch giant Dr Disrespect has sent a bizarre message to fellow streamer Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek about Bulkhead Interactive’s new FPS shooter, Battalion 1944.

The war of words between Dr DisRespect and shroud is showing no signs of slowing down, as the two continue to lock horns on social media. Dr DisRespect recently called shroud a “son of a bitch”, after Grzesiek said that Jaryd ‘summit1g’ Lazar has nothing to worry about in his upcoming Halo ‘1 v 1’ with the Doc.

Now, though, the Doc has fired more shots at shroud as he dissed Battalion 1944, in a bizarre video posted to Twitter on June 1.

Bulkhead InteractiveBattalion 1944 is said to be bring ‘classic FPS’ games back.

“It’s hard to concentrate on Toronto when we got nonsense being talked about in the online gaming community,” started the Doc. “Shroud… I’m talking to you.”

He then begins to impersonate Grzesiek, mocking what he has said about Battalion 1944: “I think Battalion 1944 is the best first person shooter game out there. It’s a great combination of Counter Strike skills and Call of Duty. It’s a great blend of both disciplines and the design community – what the fuck are we talking about.”

“It looked like it was designed in 1944 shroud!” continued Dr Disrespect. “That’s the future? That’s the future of a one hundred billion dollar industry, huh, shroud? What a fucking joke.”

Both shroud and the Doc have invested time into the game since its full release on May 23, with the former making a plea to its developers to ensure it doesn’t suffer the same stagnant phase as games such as Apex Legends.

Dr Disrespect, real name Guy Beahm, was a former level designer on Call of Duty at Sledgehammer Games, and so certainly knows a thing or two about game development.

While shroud is among the many who have been complimentary about Battalion 1944, and appears to be enjoying it, it’s clear the Doc disagrees, and is using the game as yet another reason to fire friendly shots at his fellow Twitch streamer.


Hasan calls out ‘doppelganger’ Spanish Twitch streamer after hilarious rant

Hasan jokingly called out a Spanish Twitch streamer named IlloJuan who made a hilarious rant after his fans told him they looked similar.

Hasan Piker, better known as HasanAbi, has met his match. Not in terms of political commentary, but rather, his appearance. It happened after the fanbase of a Spanish streamer named IlloJuan described the two of them as doppelgangers.

IlloJuan reacted hilariously to the comparison live on stream. Somebody captured a video of it, and it went viral. Eventually, it found its way to Hasan, who watched it live on his stream.

Hasan streams games, but his priority is to keep viewers updated on major political events.

“This guy? This guy me?” said IlloJuan. He pointed to the picture of Hasan. Then, he pointed to himself and flexed his biceps. “I am stronger.” But he didn’t look too convinced about his claim, and neither did Hasan.

“Hey! Hey! Listen,” said Hasan, while jokingly cracking his knuckles. “It’s on-site, mother f**ker.” He sat back and listened to the rest of IlloJuan’s rant.

“No, I mean, with glasses, maybe,” said IlloJuan. “But no, this guy is very strong. He kills me with one punch. Dangerous guy, this guy. What does this guy stream? He seems like he streams Team Fight Tactics.”

“What?” said Hasan, in disbelief. It seems like he thought that was the last game he’d be associated with. His viewers were in stitches, and so was he. They spammed the chat with laughter.

Fortunately, somebody told IlloJuan what he actually streams.  “Politics? He streams politics?” he said. “Ah, he speaks about politics, oh okay. Well, yes, with glasses, yes, he’s a smart guy.”

Hassan burst out laughing and stopped the video. He couldn’t get over the fact IlloJuan thought he streamed Team Fight Tactics. “Mother f**ker said Team Fight Tactics, bro. What?” he said.

“I think English [speakers] and Spanish speakers are [coming together on Twitch]. A lot of Spanish streamers are talking about English speaking streamers, too. What’s going on? I mean, listen, I’ve got a big Latina community in my audience too, so.”

Hilarious rants and reactions aside, it seems like Hasan could be on to something here. The two communities have overlapped quite a bit in recent weeks. For example, TheGrefg broke his own viewership record and became a household name among English speakers.

Hasan and his reaction to IlloJuan is another example. Who knows, maybe the two of them will collaborate in a doppelganger steam at some point. Perhaps it’s something their viewers would love to see.
