Fresh off his announcement that he’s joined Team SoloMid, Twitch star Dimitri ‘Greekgodx’ Antonatos responded to  Tyler ‘Tyler1’ Steinkamp after the League of Legends streamer roasted his new deal.

After months of speculation, streamer Greekgodx announced on February 24th that he has joined the popular organization TSM. The move comes after a big year for him on Twitch.

However the personality’s celebration broadcast was hilariously interrupted when LoL icon Tyler1 roasted his new deal, which caused him to respond back with his own jabs.

Greekgodx went live to watch the announcement trailer with his chat, and used his broadcast to celebrate the major move in his career. However while in the middle of his stream, a donator told him to watch Tyler1’s reaction to the deal claiming it was “wholesome.”

Watching the video, Tyler said, “Greek lost a lot of weight and I’m very proud of him. But with that weight loss, his humor also left!” The British streamer responded by jokingly screaming “F**K OFF! You’ve never had humor, Tyler. At least I had it once!”

Greek then read a post in chat that said “Greek joining TSM to get verified on Twitter!” Laughing, he exclaimed “Dude, imagine if I got verified on Twitter before Tyler1. The first tweet is going to be at Tyler1 with a smile saying “nice verification badge you got there Tyler!”

Earlier in the day, TSM posted the announcement video on their YouTube channel. The professionally shot clip showed the popular Twitch personality dressed up as a cowboy riding a horse.

“You might have heard there is a new cowboy in town. It’s me, Greekgodx. I just landed here in the United States of Texas. And I’ve become quite accustomed to the American culture here,” he joked, referencing his move from the United Kingdom to the US.

Fortnite streamer and now TSM colleague Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani showed his support on Twitter, and welcomed Greek. “Welcome to the team brother,” he tweeted.

Greek’s move comes on the heels of having big success in 2019, as the streamer saw an explosion in followers to his channel. It was also a year of growth for him personally, as he proudly documented his weight loss.

As of the time of writing, the British streamer has amassed over 1 million followers on Twitch, and is one of the most watched personalities on the streaming platform.

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.
