Dr Disrespect is officially atop the Twitch subscriber charts ahead of other streamers like Félix ‘xQc’ Lengyel and Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff, a huge step up from being Twitch’s third most-subscribed streamer in October 2019.

One month on from being in the third-place spot, the Doc has had an incredible few weeks. Not only has his subscriber count increased and made him the Face of Twitch once again, but he is now a two-time award winner after being named Streamer of the Year at Esports Awards 2019.

That’s why it’s of little surprise to see him be the most-subscribed channel, but it’s still impressive nonetheless.

Dr Disrespect/TwitchThe Doc is back on top after fighting off the competition.

According to metrics site Twitch Tracker, the Doc has over 31,000 subscribers on Twitch at the time of writing, almost 4,000 more than surprise runners up, CriticalRole, a primarily D&D-focused channel which plays various games and takes part in talk shows, podcasts and more, providing a variety of content for viewers.

In third place is last month’s number one xQc, who has just over 26,000 subs to his channel. Impressively NICKMERCS comes in at number four with over 23,000 subs, but a whopping 763 of those are tier 3 subscribers – more than twice as much as the three channels above him combined.

Rounding out the top 5 is MOONMOON, a former Overwatch streamer who now plays various games for his audience.

Completing the top 10 are some other familiar faces – Tim ‘TimTheTatman’ Betar, Jaryd ‘Summit1g’ Lazar and Edwin ‘Castro’ Castro to name a few, as well as variety streamer AdmiralBahroo, who jumped six places into sixth place.

The award win likely helped the Doc gain a few more subs, but he was always going to be amongst the top anyway. However, knowing that he is number one on Twitch once again must be a nice thought to help him sleep at night.

All of these streamers are probably benefitting somewhat from the likes of Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins and Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek heading to rival platform Mixer, both commonly being found near the top of the rankings when they were still streaming on Twitch.

Now the best way for the Two-Time to prove his streaming dominance is to finish the year at number one again and see in 2020 as Twitch’s most subscribed streamer.


Pokimane releases her own Fedmyster document to “put drama to rest”

Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys has conclusively responded to recent leaks about OfflineTV drama from Federico ‘Fedmyster’ Gaytan. In her own extensive document, the popular streamer shares her side of the story with texts and other sources.

The drama surrounding Fedmyster and the OTV house bubbled, then simmered, then boiled back up with a thorough document which was leaked, then shared by Fedmyster to give his side of the story. 

Fed, who has been accused of numerous improprieties, used texts and messages to provide evidence of his perspective and show some humanity. In the end, he tried to clarify for the public that the matter was resolved: “We both made mistakes and have owned up to them privately. I hope everyone reading will try to move on from all this as we certainly have already.”

But Poki immediately appeared perturbed by the leaked document, which included flirtatious messages between them as a means of demonstrating that Fed had been led on. In a brief Twitch stream, she noted Fed’s “manipulative” behavior and discomfort with private messages being leaked publicly.

Now, she’s gone a step further and shared her own doc to share her side of things and hopefully shut down any more need for gossip.

Pokimane and Fedmyster’s relationship is a long, complicated one.

In an 11-page document, including pictures of messages between herself and Fedmyster, as well as with other people, Poki clarifies context and attempts to remove biases that she felt Fed had pushed.

While understandably uncomfortable with private conversations being leaked, the streamer indicates that she is compelled to share her side because of Fed’s document: “Looking back, I would’ve done a lot of things differently, and know for a fact that neither of us handled the situation perfectly. However, our private convos heavily lacked context, and I’m not okay with how they’re being misrepresented.”

In one such example of giving context, she explains how one of the more egregiously received examples of flirting was actually misconstrued to suggest that she wanted to be alone with Fed in a hotel room.

A screenshot of Poki’s doc shows how Fed’s leaks lacked context.

Unwilling to be abdicated of responsibility for the complicated relationship, Poki asserts that she regrets many of her messages and actions.

Similarly, she contends that Fed’s “feelings are valid and a good reminder to me that what one person thinks may be going on in a friendship, don’t always match up with the other person’s expectations.”

The document tackles every issue brought up in Fed’s document, including the two’s relationship as well as drama with Yvonne, OTV, and Jodi.

But, ultimately, these are private matters and the additional context simply proves that Fed’s account may have misled in that it failed to account for other perspectives.

Poki’s hopes are that this new context will finally help “put drama to rest.”
