Dr Disrespect tries to compliment other streamers but just can’t do it

Twitch star Dr Disrespect struggled to keep himself together while thinking of some recommendations for other ‘good’ streamers.

When it comes to solo streamers on Twitch, Dr Disrespect is unmatched in terms of his production and entertainment. The former Call of Duty developer welcomes ‘millions’ into The Arena on a daily basis, as they watch him dominate with his trademark violence, speed, and momentum. 

He may not be the most followed streamer on the platform, that accolade goes elsewhere, but there’s no doubting that he stands out above the majority of broadcasters and can’t really recommend someone else who is ‘good’.

During his November 29 stream, the Two-Time had just kicked off his classic Triple Threat challenge when he received a hugely complimentary donation from a member of the Champions Club.

“Hey Doc, I’m a huge fan, today’s my birthday and I’m glad I get to start it off with the greatest streamer ever,” The Doc read out, before responding in his normal manner. “Knock it off man! There’s some good streamers out there.”

As he said that though, the streamer tried to hold back some maniacal laughter, instead, breaking out into small bouts of laughs, sputtering out strange noises, and dribbling on himself instead of complimenting anyone else.

Of course, it didn’t take him long to get focused back on the task at hand as he went in search of a victory in PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds but it’s all a part of his character and show.

The Doc hasn’t been afraid of bigging up other broadcasters in past, labeling Jaryd ‘Summit1g’ Lazar’s GTA RP streams as the best of Twitch entertainment. Even though they’ve had a friendly rivalry, Dr Disrespect has even tipped his cap to Michael ‘Shroud’ Grzesiek. 

As ever, though, it’s moments like these that typify why thousands of fans tune into the Two-Time on a daily basis as his entertaining persona puts him above the rest of the field.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
