Dr Disrespect one of the biggest Twitch streamers on the platform, but is he better than shroud? It’s up for debate but here are five reasons he is better.

The rivalry between shroud and Dr Disrespect is arguably one of the biggest across all of Twitch. The two streamers regularly take jabs at each other during their streams whether it’s making fun of an injury, looting speed or something else.

Doc and shroud always have something to say about each other and that’s what keeps the friendly rivalry between the two exciting. Shroud might have the edge over Doc in subs and viewers but that doesn’t mean he is a better streamer.

There are numerous reasons Dr Disrespect is just flat out better than shroud but let’s take a look at five reasons for now.

Dr Disrespect’s production value on Twitch is unmatched

Dr DisrespectThe Doc in his natural habitat.

Thanks to the work behind the scenes from Alex, Dr Disrespect’s production value of his stream is miles ahead of shroud, and pretty much every other streamer on Twitch.

Whether it’s him appearing in a portal while playing Apex Legends or having his head stick out of a cannon in Sea of Thieves, the Doc has a scenario for pretty much anything.

Longtime viewers might even remember RoboDoc, his PUBG persona that has since been pretty much retired. 

Outside of that, he also has the different scenes he can switch to which include the rooftop of the Twitch headquarters, his trophy room or his garage filled with Lamborghinis, just to name a few. 

Alex always has something cooking behind the scenes for members of the Champions Club. 

Speaking of which…

Shroud doesn’t even have a name for his subs

Welcome to the Champions Club.

If shroud really is the face of Twitch now and has the most subs on the site, then why doesn’t he have a name for his subs? 

Doc has had two cool names for his subs now – The Slick Daddy Club and now the Champions Club – while shroud can’t be bothered to come up with a name as simple as the shroudites or something.

The Doc will regularly mention how many million viewers he has watching him in the arena while shroud just refers to his viewers as ‘chat’ which isn’t nearly as cool.

Doc will always tell you how he feels

If there’s one thing about Dr Disrespect, it’s that he is never one to pull any punches. He has always given an honest opinion on a game he’s playing and takes frequent shots at the AAA gaming industry.

Doc knows a thing or two about how things work behind the scenes of videos games since he used to be a developer himself.

Take a look at this rant he had about Firestorm, Battlefield V’s battle royale mode.

Doc took aim at the EA published title, one publisher he is an outspoken critic of, and that’s certainly not the last rant he’ll go on. Don’t even get him started on Fortnite.

Nobody is more entertaining to watch than Doc

GFUEL, TwitterThe two-time with his signature G FUEL.

Many will argue that the two-time back-to-back Blockbuster gaming champion is washed up competitively but he can certainly stake his claim as the king of entertainment on the platform.

Doc will always have something yell about or some scene to transition to that will keep viewers entertained. If you go directly from his stream into shroud’s you’ll certainly be disappointed with the result.

Shroud is often found leaning back in his chair playing games without much chat interaction. There are moments will shroud does share emotion but it doesn’t happen as often as it does on Doc’s channel, which is disappointing if that’s what you’re looking for in a streamer.

Black on Blackberry G FUEL

If shroud is so popular then why doesn’t he have his own G FUEL flavor?

There aren’t a whole lot of streamers out there that have their own flavor but Doc managed to make the cut since he is a step above his competition. 

Doc has the Black on Blackberry flavor which is definitely something blackberry fans would be fans of. It’s even rumored that this G FUEL flavor is the reason he has a 37-inch vertical leap.

Karl Jacobs stunned after getting 5,000 Twitch subs in 8 minutes

YouTuber and streamer Karl Jacobs got emotional after Dream helped him reach an insane 5000 Twitch subs in just 8 mins, getting him to leave the room while they encouraged as many people to sub as possible.

One of the biggest communities to come out of 2020 has been the Dream SMP crew. The SMP is a survival multiplayer Minecraft server created by hugely popular creator and speedrunner Dream, with a heavy focus on complex roleplay.

Over time the server has managed to rack up a whole host of popular streamers such as the likes of TommyInnit & Quackity, and Karl Jacobs has now become a part of this community along with participating in many of MrBeast’s videos.

The Dream SMP Minecraft server is full of many hugely popular streamers and YouTubers.

Many of these creators get likes and views like no other community, and it’s all thanks to their dedicated fanbase. This was one of those occasions where viewers came out in full force to give one of their favorite creators a nice surprise.

Karl had been streaming with Dream, Sapnap, and a few other members of the group when they decided to tell him to leave the room for around five minutes. He looked rather nervous, but followed instructions and left.

Once the door had shut, they started telling chat to sub to Karl in their masses. “Alright guys, listen. I want him to come back to the most subs, I don’t even know how many. Just literally, if you are ever planning to sub to Karl, sub right now.”

Naturally, the chat started to flood with subs at an insane rate, often totally uninterrupted by any other messages. Dream theorized that it could be insane if the streamer returned and found his original 16,000 subs had gone up to 20,000, but admitted it would be a big task.

When Karl returned he was floored by how many subs continued to pour in, and when he saw that he’d gone over 21,000 subs he couldn’t believe it. It took only about 8 minutes for his fans to pour their support in.


He got a little emotional over just how much support he received, and said “I promise I’m gonna do literally everything to make all those subs earned, and send messages of thanks to fans on his alt Twitter, saying “you guys mean so much to me.”

The feat was certainly an amazing one, with Karl, and even his own viewers, bewildered by the amount of subs they were able to drum up in such a short space of time.
