PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds maps being created by a “7th grader,” after being left frustrated by its design. 

Despite past concerns about Bluehole’s first-person shooter game, the popular Twitch streamer seems to have been enjoying his time playing it of late – once again attempting his PUBG challenge, to pick up victories in Erangel, Sanhok, Miramar, and Vikendi. 

However, after jumping into the latter, he took a few moments to explain why he doesn’t really decide to drop at any specific locations on the snowy map. 

PUBGThe Vikendi map was officially launched in PUBG across all platforms in January 2019.

“I just jump. Just jump. It’s the same thing everywhere you go,” Dr Disrespect said during his May 17 stream. “The landscape is the exact same, like I think the level of design for this map, I feel like some 7th-grade kid designed this map.”

It didn’t take long for the Two-Time to jump right into one of his classic impersonations, though, as he began to mock its design with a funny voice. “Little buildings here, buildings there, put some trees in between,” he said, flicking his view from side to side as he looked around. 

“Put a couple of hills and rocks in between, couple trees,” he continued. “This little group of buildings here. Put a lake right there, put a couple of buildings next to the lake. Let’s put some buildings over there. How about some buildings right there? Oh, that’s cool man, I could stack a couple of rocks up and make it a little bit bigger so it looks like a mountain.”

The point he was trying to make, if the clip isn’t enough to see, is that the Vikendi map feels very repetitive in terms of its layout. There are areas in the map, he feels, that are pretty much the same as other locations. 

Most players tend to have their favorite drop spots in battle royale games, whether that’s because of the loot that’s found there or just something they appreciate about the design, but clearly, the Doc can’t say the same about PUBG’s take on the snow biome.

Streamers who are part of Dream’s SMP Minecraft server such as TommyInnit, Tubbo, Quackity, and more, are topping the list of the fastest growing streamers on Twitch following an SMP finale stream.

The Minecraft community has experienced a giant surge in popularity throughout the past year, with the 2011 game providing a central focus for a huge number of streamers who have seen a boost in their follower count recently.

Largely this resurgence in popularity is due to the huge multi-streamer server named the ‘Dream SMP.’ Dream is a popular Minecraft speedrunner and YouTuber, and while the SMP (survival multiplayer server) started off as a simple fun server, it quickly progressed into remarkably detailed roleplay and lore, which has captivated fans across the world.

The Dream SMP is full of many hugely popular streamers and YouTubers.

The story of the Dream SMP features wars, betrayal, revolutions, and more, and these plotlines are acted out and developed by a huge host of streamers who have all appeared in the server or in content relating to the server.

Dream SMP dominate fastest-growing channels

Following a ‘finale’ stream that saw an end to part of the developing story, many of these Dream SMP streamers are shooting to the top of the ranks on Twitch, dominating the fastest-growing streamers list.

According to SullyGnome, 16-year-old Tommy is the fastest-growing account on the platform, with his average viewers at a whopping 300,000. This follows his finale stream in which he peaked at around 650,000 viewers.

Close behind Tommy, and all within the top ten fastest-growing streamers for the seven days leading up to January 24, are fellow SMP streamers awesamdude, Tubbo, RanbooLive, Quackity, Foolish Gamers, Sapnap, and Philza.

To see this list dominated by one group of people is certainly a testament to the growing popularity of the Dream SMP group. With so many creators on board, the amount of content is practically endless, and clearly a huge amount of work has gone into developing the lore.

Now this finale has passed, fans will be keen to know what’s going to happen next in the world of the Dream SMP, and there’s no doubt that this interest will provide an even bigger boost in numbers for these streamers.
