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.


S1mple banned again on Twitch for fourth time over “aggression”

CS:GO star Oleksandr ‘s1mple’ Kostyliev has apparently been banned again on Twitch, for his fourth time in total on the platform.

The Ukrainian is the star of Natus Vincere’s CSGO squad and generally considered one of the best CS:GO players in the entire world, but even that isn’t enough to save you from the wrath of Twitch mods.

S1mple is no stranger to temporary bans from the site, and it seems he added to his tally again on Oct. 30, with his channel being taken offline out of nowhere.

It seems that like in the past, the pro has once again been banned for using a slur while streaming, but this latest episode isn’t quite like the others.

Shortly after news of the ban dropped, s1mple Tweeted that he was banned for using a Russian slur, but he claims he only said it because he was upset with another player for saying it on his stream.

“It’s funny that I get banned for aggression towards a person that says the word “Pidor” and specifically tries to ban me on the platform,” he wrote. “I try to condemn him for this and say the forbidden word because I have a negative attitude towards it (because of rules).”

While s1mple filled fans in on why he was banned, he didn’t mention how long he would be off of the platform for. Looking at his past infractions though, and it’s safe to say he’s probably looking at a 7-day break, at the very least.

The site has been known to ban repeat offenders for longer if they continue to get in hot water for the same thing, but considering how big of a name s1mple is and the circumstances surrounding this particular incident, it’s hard to say.

A good number of his fans noted that Twitch was quick to ban the Na’Vi pro after he slipped up, but still haven’t taken action against any one of the countless channels that rebroadcast s1mple’s streams to try and steal viewers.

Still, the pro doesn’t seem so much bothered by the ban as he does annoyed, which makes sense because he doesn’t really need to stream so to speak, considering all the money he’s made playing CS:GO professionally. That doesn’t really help his fans though, who will have to find someone else to watch while they wait for his return.
