Those wondering how Dr Disrespect chooses which games to stream now have a better idea thanks to fellow superstar streamer Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek revealing what the Two-Time does and doesn’t like to play.

When it comes to the biggest streamers, very few are closer friends than Dr Disrespect and shroud, who often play games together and have hilarious back-and-forths.

Thus, if there’s one streamer who’d know what types of games the Doc prefers to play, it would be shroud, and it just so happens that he does.

It’s no secret that shroud has been in love with Escape from Tarkov for quite a while now, and when asked about why the Doc doesn’t play it, he explained that the game is “not his style.”

According to the former CS:GO pro, the Two-Time doesn’t enjoy playing games that “don’t hold his hand,” so essentially ones that are too complicated and require too much to do.

Battlestate GamesShroud has been playing Escape from Tarkov non-stop, but he doesn’t believe it would fit the Doc’s style.

Why Dr Disrespect doesn’t play overly-complicated games

“It’s just not his style,” the Mixer star explained. “It’s 100% not his style. Doc’s games are games that hold his hand and this is a game that doesn’t hold his hand. There’s only a few games that I know of that he plays or had played that don’t really do a lot of hand-holding. But for the most part, he needs a game to hold his hand.”

As for why that is the case, he went on to explain that if a game is too complicated, it will affect the quality of Doc’s stream, which is, of course, all about “speed, violence and moment.”

“If it’s too complicated, if it’s too much more, he’s not going to play. And I get why – it’s bad for the channel, it’s bad for his content. His content is all about being fast, being dramatic, having a good time.”

This is, of course, only shroud’s take of how Doc chooses which games to play and stream, and it’s not clear whether or not the Two-Time agrees with the assessment.

If he doesn’t then he’ll make sure everyone knows about it, because if there’s one thing that he never misses, it’s an opportunity to fire back at his Mixer counterpart.

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.
