Popular Twitch streamer, Guy ‘Dr Disrespect’ Beahm, attempted to roast the streaming home of Ninja and shroud, but Mixer’s social media team weren’t having any of it.

Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins’ Mixer move back in August 2019 triggered a cascade of popular streamers jumping ship. From Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek following suit, to the likes of Corinna Kopf taking her talents over to Facebook Gaming

The net result has rendered the streaming world on the edge of their seats. to see which big name will be next to make a switch. One streaming giant whose loyalties are tied to their streaming roots is none other than the ‘Two-Time champion,’ Dr Disrespect.

PUBG (Twitter)Two have gone, while one remains: Dr Disrespect (far left) has stayed true to his Twitch roots.

As the self-proclaimed ‘face of Twitch’, the Doc has long been a fixture of the Amazon-owned streaming platform. Having previously stated that Mixer approached him before Ninja and shroud, Beahm squashed rumors that he’d be among the next to jump ship based on the metrics which Twitch bring in. 

Given Twitch’s current position as the go-to site to see the most famous streamers, engagement is rife — and with engagement comes money. So it’s no wonder why the Doc has pledged his allegiance to Twitch.

In his latest bid to poke fun in Mixer’s direction, he posted a Tweet asking: “Is Mixer still around?” Three minutes later, the social media guru over at Microsoft’s streaming platform clapped back with a GIF with Breaking Bad’s cold-blooded protagonist, Walter White.

The GIF read: “You’re god damn right,” a famous quote from the blockbuster AMC series. 

Of course, Beahm is simply ushering in the new decade the same way that he left the last. Having released an impromptu Mixer parody during his Christmas Eve broadcast, his feelings towards Microsoft’s streaming platform remain consistent.

Dr Disrespect has previously hinted that Twitch invested more into keeping him on the platform over Ninja and shroud, which cemented his talents to Amazon’s platform. Meanwhile, the Mixer pair are struggling to pull in anywhere close to the views which they were easily getting on Twitch. 

While we might not see the Doc over on Mixer any time soon, you can watch his long-lost brother – well, not really, but the pair do have an uncanny resemblance.

NickEh30’s latest Fortnite tournament was quite a spectacle, but it was tainted by an alleged stream sniper, who was reported and subsequently banned despite maintaining his innocence.

Nick ‘NickEh30’ Amyoony has been hosting a series of Fortnite tournaments in recent months. The latest one was the NickEh30 Cup. It gave players a chance to compete against some of the game’s biggest names in the scene for a chance to win $10,000.  

It was all positive for the most part. A lesser-known professional Fortnite player named  Crumble managed to impress and take home the prize. However, the tournament was marred with some unfortunate stream sniping drama.

NickEh30 Fortnite stream sniping ban

In the final match, several other players landed on NickEh30, including a Twitch streamer named ArchieFN. He eliminated NickEh30 and danced on his body for the better part of 30 seconds.

NickEh30 was less than impressed and looked disappointed and deflated on stream. It was a stark contrast to his usual upbeat and positive vibe. He was convinced ArchieFN was stream sniping and hopped into the replay mode to report him and a few others.

Fortunately, Epic Games responded almost instantly and banned ArchieFN for 24 hours as soon as he returned to the lobby. You can watch a full recap of the incident below and form your own opinion.

However, ArchieFN is maintaining his innocence. He claimed he wasn’t stream sniping at all. Instead, he said he wanted to “contest someone who wasn’t a tier-one pro” and decided to land on NickEh30 after seeing him land in the same spot during a previous game.

Still, he apologized for what he did and acknowledged that some might find it “scummy.” Sadly, that didn’t stop him from copping a bit of abuse, some of which was needless and extreme.

“Why am I waking up to 600 DMs telling me to kill myself?” he said. “I’m 20, and it doesn’t bother me at all, but the majority of the community is quite younger … you really need to think about what you’re saying to people on the internet.”

In the end, ArchieFN’s Fortnite ban won’t last more than a day. It isn’t too long to wait if he’s innocent, but it’s enough for a wake-up call if he’s guilty.

Either way, The NickEh30 was a success despite the stream sniping drama, and a rightful victor was still crowned.
