Dr Disrespect trolls Shroud about the real reason he left Twitch

Twitch superstar Dr Disrespect poked fun at Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek move to Mixer, by joking that he moved platforms so nobody caught on to him “hacking” in his games. 

As two of the biggest names in the streaming scene, Dr Disrespect and shroud have had a long-standing friendly, and sometimes competitive, rivalry. The pair have gone head-to-head in battle royales like PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, Call of Duty: Blackout, Warzone, and even Fortnite at times. 

It is usually shroud who comes out on top, even if Doc does get the better of him in the trash-talking department. With some onlookers trying to convict fellow streamer Mason ‘Symfunhy’ Lanier of cheating in Warzone, the Two-Time used it as a chance to poke fun at the former Counter-Strike pro.

Shroud and Doc have had a long-standing rivalry, but are good friends.

“Now shroud, he hacks. I don’t know why we’re talking about Symfunhy, it’s shroud,” The Doc said on a recent stream, joking that his pal has been using underhanded tactics ever since he played for Cloud9. “Here’s the whole thing with this Mixer move right, it was starting to become too obvious that shroud was a hacker, right?” Doc continued. 

The streaming star joked that as Grzesiek averaged 40/50,000 viewers watching him on Twitch, “you could tell he was starting to feel the heat – the FBI was stepping in,” which isn’t the case on Mixer. “So, you know what he did? He signed with Mixer!” the Doc continued. “And no one watches Mixer, no eyes on him, so now he can get away with it! Shroud is good, he’s smart.”

Obviously, Dr Disrespect knows that shroud doesn’t cheat and even though some have tried to claim that he does, it was just a chance for him to take a jab at Mixer and it’s viewership.

Shroud isn’t usually one for a quick response, but when he gets a zinger lined up, or manages to beat The Doc in their next match-up, he’ll probably take aim at the Two-Time.

Among Us

Hafu’s Among Us lobby takes action against toxic Twitch chat

In light of recent drama involving xChocoBars and Twitch chat toxicity in Hafu’s Among Us lobbies, the streamers are working together to implement a process aimed at curtailing unsavory viewers.

In one of Rumay ‘Hafu’ Wang’s popular Among Us sessions with a variety of streamers, Luminosity Gaming’s xChocoBars was driven to tears and an early conclusion of her stream by overwhelming toxicity in Twitch chat.

While Hafu and others, like Jeremy ‘DisguisedToast’ Wang, tried to console xChocoBars and let her know that chat was being unfair — the damage had already been done. Viewers were aggressively berating ChocoBars for failing to identify the impostor and that pushed her to find a substitute for her in the game and end her stream early, forgoing involvement in Rachel ‘Valkyrae’ Hofstetter’s session later in the day.

In the hours since the unfortunate incident, Hafu has worked on creating a process to deal with toxic chatters that will involve moderators from each streamer’s chat joining a collective Discord channel.

As Hafu explains, her Among Us morning lobbies will be accompanied by a communal “mod Discord.” This will allow the streamers, in unison, to levy out punishments to someone who has been overly toxic in any individual chat.

While Hafu denotes the level of toxicity as anyone being a “poopoo head,” it’s clear that this process is designed to ensure that anyone wanting to be toxic will be relegated to uninvolvement in any stream that is part of the lobby.

Overall, the idea is a quality one as it should deter people from being too nasty in chat. If someone is so invested in a streamer’s game of Among Us that they become toxic, they’ll probably dislike being completely banned from the entire lobby’s streams.

As xChocoBars tweeted, she did need to take a break from the internet for a while after dealing with toxicity in the morning stream — but she will be returning for Hafu’s next morning Among Us lobby.

It’s unclear if this anti-toxicity process was in the works before ChocoBars decided to join for the following morning’s stream. Regardless, it should be comforting to know that the lobby is taking action against what has become a growing issue in Among Us streams.
