Twitch streamers regularly do battle in-game, on-stream and in-person, but when it comes to pitting two against each other there’s no better rivalry than shroud and Dr Disrespect. With that being said, here’s five reasons why shroud is the superior of the two. 

Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek has risen to the top of Twitch through hard work, dedication and by wowing his fans with ridiculous plays in shooter game after shooter game.

While some observers would call him the current face of the streaming platform, others, including Dr Disrespect himself, would disagree and point elsewhere. The Doc has an incredibly loyal cult following after dedicating a huge part of his life to building a strong internet personality and pulling off some high-level plays in games, but he still lags behind shroud in other areas.

Let’s look at the five reasons why shroud is better than Dr Disrespect…

Respawn EntertainmentThe Pair always overlap but who really dominates the rivalry?

A wider, and better, variety of on-stream games

The pair do play a number of titles that may overlap in the battle royale arena, but the Canadian’s variety is better. Yes, he may stick to a title that he enjoys – with the current example being Apex Legends, but he isn’t afraid to dip his toes elsewhere and has shown off his range with games like The Sims and Jurassic World: Evolution in the past.

    Shroud had a better competitive career

    Shroud’s career as an esports athlete helped him elevate his standing on the streaming platform. The Doc may be the two-time, back-to-back, Blockbuster video gaming champion, but shroud lasted longer as a competitive athlete. He also racked up more prize money and has his own in-game spot named after him in CS:GO.

    The Canadian was also able to balance his relative success in competition with his growing success on Twitch. Can the Doc claim that one? Absolutely not. Twitch was a far-out, alien concept when he was claiming his trophies.

    ELEAGUEThe former Cloud9 may not have won a CS:GO Major, but did win some trophies.

    Shroud has more subscribers

    Shroud has dominated Twitch in 2019, thanks in large part to streamers like Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins stepping aside and doing other things – but the former CS:GO pro has worked hard for it.  

    He hit 100,000 subscribers back in early March and has blown away the competition ever since – despite suffering a horrific arm injury in a scooter accident. The Doc lags severely behind in the sub count and it’s not even an argument. An easy point for shroud.

    Shroud dominates The Doc in head-to-head battles

    Whenever shroud and The Doc have clashed, it’s the former CS:GO pro who usually comes out on top. Be it in PUBG, Fortnite, Blackout, or Apex Legends, you can almost count on shroud picking off the Doc at some point on his way to the top prize.

    The Doc may have gotten one or two over shroud during Code Red and Twitch Rivals tournaments, but more often than not, he’s the one left with embarrassed when Shroud and his teammates pick him off with yet another headshot.

    Shroud’s comedic ability

    While it may not be a wholly serious reason, it’s a good point to make. Shroud’s comedic ability, when he’s being sarcastic or deadpan is pretty incredible – and can come off better than the Doc’s rage or planned segments.

    Shroud may not sing or dance on stream like the Doc does, but when he takes verbal aim at someone, they know about it. Even the Doc himself has recently been on the receiving end of one of shroud’s burns and left him speechless

James Charles sparks heated beef with rapper Asian Doll over makeup artist fees

YouTube star and makeup mogul James Charles has started some unexpected beef with rapper Asian Doll after she made a divisive tweet over the price some makeup artists charge for their work.

James Charles is known for getting into the occasional Twitter spat with high-profile celebrities; in August 2020, the YouTuber called out music artist Alicia Keys for her then-unreleased skincare line, which he mistakenly interpreted as another celebrity cash-grab in the makeup biz. (This was not the case.)

Now, it seems that Charles has struck up a feud with none other than Dallas-based rapper Asian Doll — the first female rapper to be signed to Gucci Mane’s very own record label, 1017 Eskimo Records.

It all started over a post Asian Doll made on January 15, where she took issue with makeup artists charging hefty fees for their services.

“If you charge over $150 to do a face of makeup, you can go to hell, respectfully,” she wrote.

Charles was quick to clap back: “What a stupid tweet. One foundation can cost $50, artists have to buy EVERY SHADE for their kit, & thats just the first step…Either pay an artist’s rate for their time & skill, do it yourself, OR get it done at a counter and risk looking busted.”

It seems that Charles’ reply has sparked an avalanche of backlash against him from Asian Doll’s fans, with many accusing him of overstepping his bounds.

Charles has apparently messed with the wrong rapper, as Asian Doll was also quick to fire shots at the beauty guru in a series of additional tweets.

“What a dumb a** to be in my business replying to something that has absolutely nothing to do with you. I’m having a debate about HOOD PRICES baby, stay over there in HOLLYWOOD where they having you looking GHOST,” she wrote — most likely referring to the infamous photo of James Charles wearing foundation several shades lighter than his natural skin tone.

“Literally stop robbing the poor,” the rapper added in a now-deleted reply. “All I’m saying is people shouldn’t have to pay over $150 for a face, DATS IT!”

It seems that Asian Doll’s post has stirred up quite the debate regarding the value and pricing of makeup artists’ time and work in her comments section — but James’ involvement in the conversation has sparked another kind of conversation, altogether.
