WoW Classic, the Canadian has been grinding for hours at a time as he levels up his character and completes quests.

Not everyone is happy with his decision to drop titles like Apex Legends and PUBG from his daily schedule though, and when one Twitch user popped up in chat to say that they weren’t enjoying his broadcast, the former CS:GO pro gave a hilarious response which quickly shut down the unhappy viewer, and took a sly dig at some of the platform’s other creators.

Shroud’s streams are relaxed, unlike other streamers such as Dr Disrespect.

“Dude, this streamer is not entertaining,” the 25-year-old read from his Twitch chat, before hitting back at the comment from an unhappy audience member.

With so many broadcasters on Twitch, it’s unlikely that every streamer will be to your liking, but for shroud, making a comment about how boring his stream was rather than just leaving and watching someone they prefer clearly annoyed him enough to garner a response.

Of course, the streamer has a loyal legion of fans, and sat fourth overall in terms of hours watched on the site in August, with viewers spending over five million hours watching his streams throughout the month

He has admittedly seen a downturn in subscribers though since his move to World of Warcraft, estimating that he’s lost around 3,000 in that time. Whether they want to keep watching his content doesn’t matter to him though, as he says he doesn’t care about the money, and just wants to play the games he enjoys on his channel.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
