Popular Twitch streamer Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek has revealed who he will pick to a win, when Jaryd ‘summit1g’ Lazar and Dr Disrespect face off in their Halo 1v1.

The former CS:GO professional enjoyed an extremely successful competitive career and is now one of the largest streamers on Twitch following another boom in popularity after the release of Apex Legends.

Given his exploits in the world of esports, shroud can be considered a very good judge when it comes to in-game combat, so is well positioned to pick a winner between Twitch streamers Summit1g and Dr Disrespect, should they come face to face on the battlefield.

Doc calls out Summit

The two streamers have apparently agreed to face off in a 1v1 in Halo, when the game is released for PC, and despite Doc’s skills, summit too was formerly a semi-pro CS:GO player, and so fans are giving him the edge.

Known for his high-intensity gameplay, Dr Disrespect never fails to entertain his viewers and believed that his skill in the newly released game, Splitgate, which features gunplay similar to Halo. meant that he could easily down FPS veteran summit1g.

“You’re telling me summit has a chance?” he asked his Twitch chat. “You think he has a chance? I’m the best, I’ve always been the best.”

However, shroud was less than impressed after watching Doc’s gameplay and couldn’t believe that he thinks he would come out on top in the potential showdown, picking summit to emerge victorious.

“Oh no I’m watching Doc play Splitgate, and this dude challenged summit to a 1v1 on Halo,” shroud said, “summit is about to have a field day.”

Despite Doc poking fun at his fellow streamer on multiple occasions, the pair are yet to meet on the battlefield for the epic showdown that he has been calling for, with Halo’s PC version not available yet.

If Splitgate manages to create a similar buzz to Apex Legends and Fortnite Battle Royale, we may finally see two of the biggest Twitch streamers go head to head.

Popular YouTuber Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg criticized viewers who flood his wife Marzia’s Instagram account every time he makes a comment on it to support her. The Swede hit out at the “simp” meme becoming overused.

With over 108 millions subscribers to his channel in 2020, PewDiePie is not only one of the platform’s biggest creators, but undoubtedly one of the most popular entertainers in the world.

The YouTuber has also become an icon when it comes to internet humor. In November, the star called out viewers overusing the popular “simp” meme every time he supports his wife Marzia, and explained why he’s tired of reading it.

PewDiePie hits out at “simp” comments flooding Marzia’s Instagram

While the modern use of “simp” goes back as far as the 1980s, the term has exploded in popularity in 2020, becoming one of the year’s biggest memes. However, during his November 27 upload, PewDiePie explained why it’s starting to become too much on Instagram.

“Instagram is even worse. I commented on Marzia’s post, and I swear to God every single comment… She painted the kitchen and I said “you did so good” because I know she worked hard on it. And it’s just “simp, simp, simp king” every single comment. It is so unfunny. Jesus Christ, dude!” the YouTuber exclaimed.

The star then went on to mock the way memes become tired quickly due to users jumping on the bandwagon and spamming it relentlessly online in comments. “Maybe if everyone says a joke, it becomes funnier,” he said sarcastically.

Hilariously, the star had a follow-up to the situation on November 30 when one fan pointed out that they actually had made a nice comment on Marzia’s Instagram post. “Me understanding that he just wants to be a good husband,” they wrote days prior. PewDiePie then apologized to the viewer. “I’m sorry tg_man 12. I did you dirty, I did you dirty,” he laughed.

While the content creator has made several videos on the simp meme, he has been critical of how its been used in the past and mocked users for their broad use of it. Now it appears the joke is starting to overstay its welcome with how often it’s being repeated.

The 31-year-old has had an incredible year so far, making a successful move to streaming after signing a major deal with YouTube in May to broadcast live exclusively on their platform. The entertainer also surpassed over 108 million subscribers in November, making him the most followed individual on the platform.
