Of course, having such a large fanbase can sometimes result in occasional drama — as seen when Dream finally showed his face after years of being a ‘faceless’ content creator, sparking a wide variety of reactions from his viewers after they saw what he actually looked like.
Now, another big moment is taking over Dream’s fanbase, along with that of another major content creator in the Minecraft scene.
