League of Leagues streaming schedule and start playing some first or third person shooter games. 

The Doc, who has held a number of Code Red tournaments in recent months on both Call of Duty Blackout and Apex Legends, raised the point during a stream on March 4. 

Despite admitting that Tyler’s passion and success playing LoL is clear, he would like to now see him try something different. 

Respawn EntertainmentCould we see Dr Disrespect and Tyler1 jump into Apex Legends together in the future?

Tyler1 was voted the runner-up for Streamer of the Year at the 2018 Esports Awards, but expressed his concern of becoming “irrelevant”  back in December 2018 – as he feels he’s not as popular as he once was. 

“I wish Tyler1 would venture out from League of Legends,” Dr Disrespect said. 

“Don’t you want to see Tyler1 not play League of Legends and jump over into the first person shooter, third person shooter universe?” he asked his audience. “I think everyone – the majority of people – do,” he added. 

“You’ve got to respect the passion. He has the passion for League of Legends, apparently. You’ve got to respect it.” 

Whether or not the animated streamer would return to playing first person shooters is unknown at this stage. 

However, this isn’t the first time that The Doc has given Tyler streaming advice and it wouldn’t be the first time it’s been turned down either.

GFUEL, TwitterThis isn’t the first time Dr Disrespect has given his opinion on Tyler1’s streaming schedule.

In July 2018, Dr Disrespect advised Tyler to start playing multiple games, instead of limiting himself and his viewers to just League. 

The streamer discarded his opinion on that occasion, asking why his opinion would matter to him. Will Tyler respond similarly this time?

Mr Beast was turned down by Quibi before app went bust

Now that the not-so-popular streaming service Quibi is shutting down after it failed to receive the stardom it once hoped to achieve, some old tweets from the manager of YouTube star Mr Beast may shine some light on a missed opportunity that may have helped it stay afloat.

Over the past year or so, Quibi was thought, at least internally, to have potential to be the next big streaming service that everyone wanted to get their hands on. With large executives who used to work at Disney and big stars attached to the service, there was definitely some merit behind the idea.

Several months later, the service is shutting down, according to company founder Jeffery Katzenberg. After its failure to take off, many aren’t surprised by the news and thought it was only a matter of time before it shut its doors. If some old tweets are to be believed, however, the company once had an opportunity that would have possibly made it successful.

Back in June, Reed Duchscher, the CEO of Night Media and the business manager behind Mr Beast, stated that he and the company attempted to bring the aforementioned YouTuber onto Quibi in the past – but the people behind the service ended up saying no.

Duchscher never expounded on this, so we’ll never know the reason why the company decided to say no to someone as popular as Mr Beast. It’s possible that they never came up with a good idea for a show centered around him, although this is pure speculation and seems rather unlikely.

Regardless of the reasoning behind Quibi’s refusal, it almost certainly would have been beneficial for them. Even though the company had major stars attached to it on the outset, getting someone as popular as Mr Beast – who currently has 45 million subscribers – probably would have helped out at least a little bit.

Of course, hindsight is 20/20, and they more than likely didn’t think it was worth it back then.
