MOONMOON lists all the painful things he’d rather do than play Overwatch

Popular Twitch streamer MOONMOON has shared a strange list of things he would rather do than return to the game that made saw him skyrocket on Twitch, Overwatch.

MOONMOON is widely regarded as one of the most creative and entertaining streamers on the Amazon-owned platform, and for much of his streaming career, dedicated his time to one specific game — Overwatch.

Unsurprisingly then, some of his viewers would love to see him make a return to the game that he played when they first started watching him, but as one fan found out, MOONMOON has absolutely no intention of logging back into Overwatch any time soon.

Blizzard EntertainmentMOONMOON is best-known for his time playing Overwatch.

During his December 4 stream, MOONMOON was trying out the remastered PC version of Halo Reach, hopping into match after match, until one viewer told him he should try “Overwatch grind game” in an attempt to reach top 500 in the world.

The streamer shut this idea down at a rapid pace, making it clear he had n interest in playing Overwatch with a list of horrible things he would rather do than go back to the first-person shooter.

“That sounds like fun,” he responded sarcastically. “I’m gonna throw that on a list of suggestions I’ve got here. I’ve got peel my own fingernails off, get waterboarded, have every individual hair left on my head pulled out one-by-one. I’ve got to get through those first and then we’ll play Overwatch again.”

MOONMOON isn’t the only streamer to shut down his viewers recently, with Dr Disrespect roasting his impatient chat when they felt he had spent too long talking, and wanted him to hop into a game.

One thing is for sure though, MOONMOON’s chat likely won’t be asking him to jump over to Overwatch again any time soon, and it seems certain that the Twitch streamer has absolutely no intention of doing so either.

Streamers who are part of Dream’s SMP Minecraft server such as TommyInnit, Tubbo, Quackity, and more, are topping the list of the fastest growing streamers on Twitch following an SMP finale stream.

The Minecraft community has experienced a giant surge in popularity throughout the past year, with the 2011 game providing a central focus for a huge number of streamers who have seen a boost in their follower count recently.

Largely this resurgence in popularity is due to the huge multi-streamer server named the ‘Dream SMP.’ Dream is a popular Minecraft speedrunner and YouTuber, and while the SMP (survival multiplayer server) started off as a simple fun server, it quickly progressed into remarkably detailed roleplay and lore, which has captivated fans across the world.

The Dream SMP is full of many hugely popular streamers and YouTubers.

The story of the Dream SMP features wars, betrayal, revolutions, and more, and these plotlines are acted out and developed by a huge host of streamers who have all appeared in the server or in content relating to the server.

Dream SMP dominate fastest-growing channels

Following a ‘finale’ stream that saw an end to part of the developing story, many of these Dream SMP streamers are shooting to the top of the ranks on Twitch, dominating the fastest-growing streamers list.

According to SullyGnome, 16-year-old Tommy is the fastest-growing account on the platform, with his average viewers at a whopping 300,000. This follows his finale stream in which he peaked at around 650,000 viewers.

Close behind Tommy, and all within the top ten fastest-growing streamers for the seven days leading up to January 24, are fellow SMP streamers awesamdude, Tubbo, RanbooLive, Quackity, Foolish Gamers, Sapnap, and Philza.

To see this list dominated by one group of people is certainly a testament to the growing popularity of the Dream SMP group. With so many creators on board, the amount of content is practically endless, and clearly a huge amount of work has gone into developing the lore.

Now this finale has passed, fans will be keen to know what’s going to happen next in the world of the Dream SMP, and there’s no doubt that this interest will provide an even bigger boost in numbers for these streamers.
