Greek and Tyler1 entertain the masses with their hilariously bad Minecraft Monday gameplay

Minecraft Monday tournament, and their attempt went about as poorly as you could expect. 

KEEMSTAR’s Minecraft Mondays have been a roaring success, with thousands of viewers tuning in to watch their favorite content creators head into the game’s popular Hunger Games servers in the hopes of being the last team standing, much like his Friday Fortnite competition.

One of the big-name duos from this weekend were Tyler1 and Greek, and while they may be extremely talented at their own specific games, their attempts at Minecraft domination had their viewers in stitches.

Reddit, u/VitaMint123Minecraft Mondays sees competitors take to Hunger Games servers.

Things got off to a poor start for the duo, who admitted right off the bat that they weren’t going to do well, and were only there because of their popularity.

“It’s so funny, it’s almost a waste of time us being there at this point,” Greek told his teammate. “We can’t even work the menu! It’s a massive waste of time, we’re not going to win any money, we’re just viewers!”

“True!” roared Tyler1. “We’re just being used for clout at this point for fucking KEEMSTAR!”

The pair even tried to practice for their appearance, taking to a match with just the two of them so they could try and practice their skills with a bow and arrow.

Unsurprisingly, Tyler1 got upset almost immediately as Greek hit him continuously with shots, shouting at him to stop firing so he could have a chance.

The Twitch streamer’s rage continued during a game of Spleef, where players try and knock each other off of a platform and into the lava below, with the last man standing declared the winner.

While Tyler was able to take down one opponent, he was quickly bombarded with snowballs and thrown into the lava himself, choosing to blame Greek for not coming and helping him, before threatening to smack his screen out of frustration.

Tyler1 screamed: “I’m going to punch my fucking monitor! I’m getting teamed on! Where are you Greek! Help! I’m fucking dead!”

Unsurprisingly, their less-than-successful attempts at securing Minecraft Monday glory fell flat, with the pair finishing third from last in 19th position.

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.
