Popular streamer Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek has revealed why he thinks Dr Disrespect’s Twitch ban can’t be classed as a mistake.

Fans of Dr Disrespect were delighted when the streamer broadcasted live from E3, walking around the convention center in full ‘Doc’ gear.

The stream did eventually cause issues for the two-time, who walked into bathrooms while streaming on four occasions, with attendees in the background making use of the toilet facilities, something which is against Twitch’s terms of service, and CS:GO pro shroud suggests that if you do something as many times as Dr Disrespect did, it can no longer be classed as a “mistake.”

“Is it a mistake if you do it four times? No,” the streamer told his audience on June 13. “The first time, I can somewhat let it slide. Three times after that, there’s just nothing you can say.”

“You can maybe say something the first time, but three times after that, you know what I mean? He’ll be unbanned, but who knows about the legal side. He will be unbanned though.”

Dr Disrespect’s adventures at the E3 Expo were cut short when he was ejected from the event by security following his Twitch streaming escapades in the toilets, with a source confirming that they had taken away his pass for the conference.

The leader of the Champions Club has confirmed that he’ll be releasing a special recap video showing the best moments from the brief period he was able to stream at E3.

While many are extremely sympathetic to the Doc’s situation, it seems that shroud probably isn’t one of them, and their famed “rivalry” is likely to continue once Dr Disrespect regains control of his channel.

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.
