Dr Disrespect’s latest Twitch return teaser is as confusing as the first

Dr Disrespect has released yet another teaser for his return to Twitch after being banned on the platform since the E3 trade fair, and it’s more confusing than you might expect. 

The Twitch streamer, who has over 3 million followers on the platform, was banned for taking his IRL stream right into the mens restroom during E3 2019 at the Los Angeles Convention Center on June 12. 

With his fans counting down the days until that long-awaited July 8th return date, there’s no doubt that they will be clamouring for not just his iconic intro, but the patented violence, speed, and momentum that have become mainstays on his livestreams. 

G FUELDr Disrespect’s fans can’t wait for his Twitch return.

The new teaser doesn’t exactly give anything away in terms of what his first broadcast back will include, either. There’s no mention of any games that he would like to play – like Apex Legends, Fortnite, or any other battle royale title for that matter. 

What it does include, though, is a very weird gym scene. Not exactly a telltale sign of what’s to come next for the Doc, but the trailer shows what appears to be a personal trainer – Dan “the body” – who completely abandons their client when their phone starts to ring. 

Who was on the other line? Look no further than the flip phone wielding, two-time, back-to-back, blockbuster video game champion of 1993 and 1994. You guessed it, Dr Disrespect. 

Dan “the body” was involved in the first teaser as well, where – again – his phone started to ring. This time it was suggested that the Doc was base jumping from the Empire State Building in New York, before the screen went black. 

His huge cult fanbase, who went absolutely berserk in his Twitch chat when they found out his ban had came to an end on June 25, will have July 8 circled on their calendars waiting to get the notification that says the Doc is back. 

Until then, we’ll just have to keep waiting for more and more of these teasers, however weird they might be.

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.
