Twitch streamer Matthew ‘Ducksauce’ Rhode has returned to the platform after taking a three year break to pursue a career in voice acting. 

Ducksauce took a break from Twitch three years ago and moved to a “rural area” in Montana with his wife, American fashion model Adrianne Curry. 

On November 2, 2019, Ducksauce returned to the platform that made him famous with a special surprise stream and reintroduced himself with help from the Curb Your Enthusiasm theme. 

Twitch/DucksauceDucksauce didn’t understand why people seemed to dislike Ninja.

“What’s up, guys? How you doing?” he asked his chat. “It’s been f***ing forever.”

The streamer, who still had over 200,000 followers, had many of his long-time fans rush to his stream to see why he had returned after such a long time away from Twitch.

“We back, baby,” he laughed. “Dude, I can’t even read chat. Normally I like to interact with you guys, but I can’t.”

During his return broadcast, which is visible for subscribers only, the Twitch streamer gave some praise to both Tyler ‘Ninja‘ Blevins and GreekgodX for their success. 

When talking about streamers who “blew up”, Ducksauce said Fortnite star Ninja was “by far the biggest one” but everyone seemed to be a hater of his. 

“I mean that’s the internet for you,” he said. “They’re all about it when it’s the big thing, but then all of a sudden they turn their back on you. That’s what I hate you all. But I mean, Ninja’s a really nice dude.” 

Then, when talking about Greek, Rhode was extremely impressed with his weight loss after seeing a picture of what he weighed before. “Dude, that guy worked his ass off. He looks f***ing great! He looks healthy and happy.” 

While Ducksauce admitted he doesn’t know Greekgod, but was familiar enough with him to appreciate the transformation. “Mad props to that dude. That s**t’s not easy. You gotta legit be committed to losing weight and getting healthy. But once you get it, you see the swag level go up.”  

Twitch/DucksauceDucksauce was impressed with Greekgodx’s weight loss.

During his departure from the platform, the popular streamer actively pursued a career in voice acting and it seems like he made his dream come true. According to IMDB, Rhode has done voice overs for Avengers: Infinity War, Blade Runner 2049, and the Oscar-winning Best Picture Green Book. 

His website “ThatVoice” details numerous roles he’s had such as doing voice work for Star Wars commercials.

Hopefully Ducksauce can continue to stream more regularly considering his comeback was viewed so positively.

Dr Disrespect responds to backlash after roasting mobile gaming

Legendary streamer Dr Disrespect responded to all the backlash he received after comparing his monstrous gaming setup to that of a mobile gamer’s.

On November 26, the Two-Time made waves on Twitter after he described his $200,000 multi-PC setup and sarcastically asked how people can take mobile gaming seriously.

Now, the back-to-back Blockbuster video game champion responded to everyone who was upset with him claiming mobile gaming wasn’t a serious thing.

In a comedic skit, Doc pretended to play a game on an old flip phone and was clearly struggling.

“Come on, peak. Oh, I would have killed you if I had a better connection. That’s bullsh*t,” he acted before realizing the camera was rolling, causing him to slowly flip his phone shut. “How long have we been live?”

While this opening segment was played for jokes, the theme carried on with Doc talking to ZLaner about the backlash he was receiving.

“I’m getting a lot of heat these days on Twitter. I just explained what my setup was in comparison to a mobile gaming setup,” he said. “I shouldn’t even say anything anymore.”

To this, ZLaner inquired about what exactly Doc had said and if he was implying that mobile gaming was a “laughing joke.”

“Again, I just explained what my setup was,” he doubled down. “And then with all that said, do I take someone playing on a phone seriously? I mean, it was just a question.”

Furthermore, when 100 Thieves star Rachell ‘Valkyrae’ Hofstetter tried to get Doc to participate in a big Among Us stream, he declined, saying it “looks worse than a mobile game.”

While the YouTube streamer may be downplaying his remarks a touch, phrasing them as “just a question,” it didn’t stop some prominent voices from speaking up.

As Dexerto reported, things reached a boiling point when CoD Mobile player Luke ‘iFerg’ Fergie challenged Doc to a $100,000 1v1.

Dr Disrespect has been seeing success on YouTube.

This wasn’t the only challenge issued either with Elijah ‘Hawksnest’ Jackson offering a $10,000 wager against the Two-Time.

Dr Disrespect didn’t respond to either of the two challenges issued. Either way, it seems like this feud with the mobile gaming community is far from over.
