The Grand Theft Auto V role playing community is often hailed for the drama and hilarious debacles that arise between its players – but the death of a Brazilian YouTuber brought out a different side of the game’s playerbase, altogether.

Brazilian YouTuber and Twitch streamer Thiago Guilherme, known online as ‘Futebolista,’ tragically passed away at the young age of 16 after being hospitalized for several days.

Futebolista reportedly suffered from a condition that affected his muscles, and hoped to reach 100,000 subscribers on his YouTube channel before his passing.

With this in mind, members of the Brazilian GTA RP community began a campaign to help the young player reach his goal – but that wasn’t the only tribute they paid the ‘Soccer Player,’ by far.

After receiving news of his passing, the community of his server came out en masse in a touching tribute to the youngster, dressing their characters in black and collectively walking down the streets with hands held up in peace signs, while one streamer sang a rendition of Jeff Buckley’s ‘Hallelujah.’

A friend of Futbolista, Gabriel ‘Random Gamer’ Lopes, likewise paid tribute to the player, compiling an emotional video of his gaming moments with the help of another community member in remembrance of the youngster.

Even English fans were touched by the Brazilian playerbase’s memorial, with Reddit commenters finding themselves surprisingly moved by their in-game tribute after a clip of the stream went viral.

“How is this making me tear up?” one commenter asked. “I don’t even know the guy. Bless this RP community.”

“Things like this really do give me hope in humanity,” another wrote.

Commenters across Reddit were touched at the Brazilian GTA V community’s tribute.

This wouldn’t be the first time an online community has come together in support of another streamer, either; in early April, a few good-hearted viewers came to the defense of a streamer who was being bullied due to a facial birth defect, which ended up raising the broadcaster enough money for a new streaming PC.

Despite the well-documented vitriol often spewed by random internet groups, the Brazilian GTA V RP community shone a heartwarming light in the midst of a heart-wrenching tragedy.

Dr Disrespect’s Halloween ‘Doctober’ contest has returned and with it, fans of the Two-Time have unveiled their best cosplays of the legendary streamer.

Given Doc’s larger-than-life personality and outfit with the red vest, black mullet, mustache, combat boots and sunglasses, he’s cosplay material.

The contest is simple, post a picture of yourself dressed as Doc and tweet it with the hashtag #Doctober for a chance to win prizes from the Two-Time himself.

While Dr Disrespect hasn’t picked his winners yet, here are five Doctober cosplays we think are deserving of tasting victory.

There’s a lot in this photo that makes it stand out from the crowd. Primarily, it’s the theme of the 1993/1994 BlockBuster video game championship that Doc has built his “Two Time” moniker around.

For one, you have the podium with the Doc cosplayer standing above two children as a man dressed as a BlockBuster employee hands out a trophy.

The BlockBuster video cases in the back keep the immersion intact while a Sega Genesis shows what appears to be NBA Jam. This was just well-done in general.

This one amplifies the Halloween aspect of the cosplay with some horror elements going on.

The cosplay itself is well done with the sweat pants featuring the logo, vest, mullet and sunglasses all intact. Meanwhile, the background features a spooky full moon and peashooters dropping in.

On the ground, the zombified hand reaching out of the grave secures its place on our list primarily for the Halloween theme.

Working together with your spouse on a cosplay deserves some credit, and that’s exactly what this couple did to recreate Mrs Assassin’s Instagram photo.

This unique cosplay has the wife standing on her husband with a knife by his throat – perfectly emulating the original.

Her husband’s pose as Doc is also extremely well-done, so this one is definitely a serious contender.

Cruzader1993

This is most likely the most standard Doc cosplay on this list, but it looks so authentic we couldn’t not mention it.

Nothing fancy, just an extremely well-crafted Doc outfit equipped with an authentic mustache. It just works, and it does so perfectly.

Kids dressed up as Doc is nothing new, but there’s something about a five-year-old with a mullet drinking G-Fuel that is downright hilarious.

As far as the outfit goes, once again, this kid’s parents nail it – all the boxes are checked. It also really helps that the boy’s attitude while posing for the video seems to match Doc’s energy, which is a major plus.

There is only one day left until Halloween, so it’s not to late for you to enter the contest itself and show the YouTube streamer what you’ve got.
