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.

Twitch: shroud
Shroud is the second biggest streamer on Twitch, with over 6 million followers.

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.”

Shroud backs summit1g

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.


Ninja shocks Valorant star with huge donation after Twitch refund scam

Chargebacks are a Twitch streamer’s worst nightmare, as Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins knows it all too well, so when he saw Valorant star ‘AverageJonas’ get scammed out of over $5,000, he knew he had to step up and help.

There’s few Twitch scams more infuriating than chargeback scams. When you have avid viewers donate to your stream, it’s a wonderful feeling.

However, some viewers do it maliciously, with the intent of taking, not giving. After donating hundreds, or even thousands of dollars, viewers dispute the charge with PayPal or their bank, saying they were hacked and didn’t actually donate the money.

The money then goes back to the donator, and the Twitch streamer is left without the donations, and most of the time, also has to pay a fine on top.

That’s exactly what happened to AverageJonas ⁠— a Valorant Twitch star with over 130,000 followers. He had a viewer refund $5,400 worth of donations, which ended up costing the streamer $5,800 after accounting for transfer fees.

“I have received over $5,400 in several donations from one person on Twitch which have all been refunded even though donations are supposedly non-refund. To top it off, I have been personally charged $400+ in refund fees from PayPal,” Jonas said on Twitter.

“This person used me and my community to gain clout and other benefits by acting like an extremely wealthy and giving human being. The person also pretended like the refunds were a mistake.”

Fortunately, Ninja got wind of the fellow Valorant streamer’s woes.

After all, Jonas is one of Valorant’s biggest content creators, and Ninja is slowly working his way to the top of the pro scene. With all of Jonas’ informational content, it’s the least Ninja could do to put his fandom to use.

Ninja replied to Jonas’ tweet with a simple “fixed.” What he meant by that was he donated AverageJonas $5,800, to cover not only the Twitch donations from the user, but the PayPal fees as well.

Jonas was shocked: “Dude thank you so much you’re such a legend omfg.”

It’s a big win for Jonas, however, it highlights a much bigger issue with Twitch donations. If Ninja hadn’t caught wind of the streamer’s troubles, it’s likely nothing would have been done.

Chargebacks are still a big issue, and there’s nothing you can really do about it as a streamer if PayPal or Twitch don’t step in ⁠— like what happened in Jonas’ case.

However, now he can go back to doing what he does best ⁠— sharing Sova line-ups for every Valorant player to learn.
