Shroud predicts Dr Disrespect’s fate if he ever played WoW Classic

Twitch streamer Michael ‘Shroud’ Grzesiek has gone on record explaining what would happen if the two-time Blockbuster champion Guy ‘Dr Disrespect’ Beahm was to ever play WoW Classic.

Former CSGO phenom Shroud has been deep in the WoW Classic grind on his stream lately, to the point that he has even started losing Twitch subscribers.

Dr Disrespect on the other hand has refused to switch over and try the re-release, amusingly lashing out at streamers like Asmongold for all the visual clutter on the Twitch homepage.

When asked “do you think Doc would ever play WoW?” by one of his viewers, Shroud immediately replied by saying; “honestly, he would try it and he would shit all over it.”

Elaborating on the amusing idea of the Blockbuster champion taking his skills to Azeroth, Shroud explains that there are “two things Doc would do. One, he would have somebody else level and gear a character. And he would then learn off-stream how to be a f*cking legend.”

“He would turn on the stream as if he’s been playing this whole time,” Shroud continued. “He would play this character, use all that information and knowledge that he had and he would just shit on some noobs and then never play again.”

While Doc will likely never shift gears and attempt to play WoW Classic, there’s no denying it would be a hilarious spectacle if it ever came to be.

Already sitting at level 59, Shroud has been dedicating a huge amount of his time to WoW Classic over the past few weeks. Even his girlfriend has chimed in on the number of hours he’s played since the release on August 26.

The WoW addiction has struck quite a number of popular streamers lately as the game has consistently remained among the top viewed on all of Twitch.

On August 30 JokerdTV became the first streamer to hit level 60, causing a massive celebration throughout the realm and online. Shroud is just hours away from that very milestone himself.

Could he be the one to convince Doc to play for the very first time? Or will the Champions Club founder continue to laugh about the game from afar?

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.
