Former professional Gears of War player, Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff roasted fellow streamer Dr Disrespect after watching his gameplay from the release of Gears 5.

Before he grew a massive following on Twitch thanks to first Call of Duty and then Fortnite, NICKMERCS was best known for his time as a professional Gears of War player.

Although it has been a while since he competed, Kolcheff could not help but comment on the Doc’s gameplay on the just released Gears 5.

The CoalitionThe latest addition to the Gears of War series was recently launched on September 6.

Dr Disrespect had decided to try his hand at some online King of the Hill and was instantly judged on his movement by the Fortnite star, who had tuned into his Twitch stream while queuing for a game.

The Doc was moving around and testing all of the controls when Nick had chosen to watch, and after seeing him miss an easy shot on an unsuspecting opponent, slated the Doc’s gameplay, calling him a “Bot.”

“He’s a fucking bot” NICKMERCS expressed, clearly disappointed by the Doc’s level of gameplay and even offered his fellow streamer some help, “Doc, baby, we got to teach you the way of Gears, Yikes!”

NICKMERCS continued to reference the Doc’s struggles with some of the new games he tries out on stream, responding to one of his viewers’ comments, “there hasn’t been a game yet that the doc hasn’t uninstalled and installed back the same day, that’s true.”

Dr Disrespect’s progress on Gears 5 may have been hindered by some of the tech issues he encountered when first trying to play the latest Gears of War game, which saw him exploding on stream due to some unwanted notifications.

Despite the Doc’s willingness to try many new games on his stream, he still refuses to play the re-release of the popular MMORPG, WoW Classic, even with fellow streamer Shroud inviting him to try it out.

However, with the recent release of Gears 5 and the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare beta, Dr Disrespect will likely have his hands full for a while, trying to find his form on each of the popular shooter games.

Mr Beast giving $10,000 to whoever can ‘ratio’ him the hardest

In another wacky challenge, YouTuber Mr Beast has announced he will award $10,000 to whoever can ‘ratio’ him, or get the most likes in comparison to his tweet, with fandoms battling it out to have their fave crowned the winner.

Jimmy Donaldson a.k.a Mr Beast is well known for his grand scale challenges. And with 45 million subscribers on YouTube, he certainly has the means to facilitate them, often partnering up with his huge audience to make great things happen.

On the charitable front, one of Mr Beast’s most ambitious projects was ‘Team Trees,’ where he endeavored to raise the money required to plant 20,000,000 trees. He definitely succeeded, with over 500,000 unique users donating to the campaign.

Instagram: MrBeastMrBeast and his crew of over 600 YouTubers has raised over $20 million for Team Trees.

Among the philanthropy, Donaldson also previously set out to break some online records just for the fun of it. He set out to beat PewDiePie and have one of his videos become the most liked non-music video on YouTube. The video currently has a whopping 15 million likes.

With that in mind, he set his Twitter followers the task of ‘ratio-ing’ his original tweet. To ‘ratio’ someone means either for the number of comments to far outweigh the likes (usually when something is controversial,) or in this case to far outweigh the likes of the original tweet. Essentially, you have to get more likes than Mr Beast himself.

Originally, it looked like popular YouTuber Corpse Husband was going to win the money thanks to his reply tweet of a simple smiley face. Alongside the rise of Among Us, Corpse has experienced a huge surge in popularity in recent months, and said that he would be donating 100% of the money if won to charity.

However, just as it was looking as if Corpse would be sailing to victory unrivalled, a tweet from a BTS fan’s account saying “I know this is impossible but, If ever I win the funds will be directly donated to Funds for Bangtan and BorahaeFunds” began to pick up traction.

Their victory might not be as impossible as they first thought, with dedicated fans around the globe heading in droves to boost the tweet.

Mr Beast even joked “Hey Kpop fans, you about to let Minecraft youtubers show you up like this? Are they the new biggest fan base?”

At the time of writing, Mr Beast’s original tweet has 200,000 likes, Corpse Husband’s 233,000 likes, and BTS_History613’s tweet at 239,000. But with the numbers changing rapidly by the second, who the ultimate winner will be is yet unclear.
