Donation alerts on Twitch are common with any streamer, but 88bitmusic blows everyone else out of the water with his extremely elaborate one.

Many streamers on Twitch, Mixer, or whatever platform they stream on have some sort of noise that plays to signify a donation.

For most, it’ll just be a short alert, but 88bitmusic mixed it up a bit and had a prolonged one that played an entire song and pretty much took over the stream for several minutes.

One you have to see to believe.

A donation was triggered that began with a gorilla punching a hole through the side of his stream, which is when he let the chat know he was just going to sit back and let this one play out.

Soon after that, a cover of ‘Africa’ by Toto began playing and a series of graphics overlayed over his screen. It was probably like nothing anybody in the chat had ever seen before. 

It’s easily one of the lengthiest and most elaborate donation alerts we’ve seen on Twitch, and it’s also one of the most impressive.

Alerts like this are always fun to watch as a viewer, but can quickly grow to be annoying if it’s abused, which is why many streamers will make their lengthy alerts locked behind a high paywall.

We can go on and on about this nearly 4-minute alert, but it’ll be a lot easier to just watch for yourself and see what the fuss is about.

As for his channel, 88bitmusic is a streamer who will take requests from the chat to play music. He explains in his bio that he will take requests from every $5 donation or 500 bits from the large song list he provides.

Sometimes he will see a request from the chat and play it, no donation required. 88bitmusic boasts over 31,000 followers on Twitch, which is extremely impressive when you consider the majority of Twitch content revolves around video games.

Dr Disrespect trolls mobile gamers and players take the bait

Dr Disrespect has taken a cheeky swipe at mobile gamers on Twitter, asking how anybody can even consider it to be a “serious” way to play – but players are fighting their corner. 

The Two-Time has had a whirlwind 2020 by all accounts. He’s moved platforms from Twitch to YouTube, and while some might have expected his influence on the gaming world to perhaps decrease in that move – he’s still one of the best at stirring the pot.

Of course, a lot of franchises that made their name on PC and console, like Call of Duty, PUBG, FIFA and Fortnite, have brought their games to iOS and Android.

Though, Doc doesn’t seem to be a fan.

Dr Disrespect takes aim at mobile gamers

Dr Disrespect has turned into a mainstream symbol of the streaming world, and sure knows how to get people talking.

On November 26, literally out of nowhere in vintage Doc style, he decided to joke about the idea of playing games on mobile.

He said: “I’ve got 3 state-of-the-art 1ms speed color calibrated monitors staring at me, a keyboard with titan switch optical keystrokes and a mouse that weighs literally nothing backed by a 200k multi pc setup….and you have the guts to tell me mobile gaming is a serious thing?”

As you might expect, he’s sparked a huge debate in the replies – with some arguing for and against his point of view.

One user, by the name of Yettobegin, said: “Well Dr.D not everyone can afford a good PC setup and that’s why mobile gaming is so popular in southern Asian countries.. Anyways I don’t hear any mobile gamers fighting for validation as a “Gamer”.. If u want to play in mobile and have fun who cares?!”

If you thought that was a strong response, wait until you see this.

Tribe Gaming’s Ferg challenged the self-professed best video gamer in the world to a 1v1 in CoD Mobile, with $100,000 on the line. As of writing, that has not been accepted, but it shows there’s certainly a lot of people out there wanting to prove him wrong.

This was not the only challenge, with Elijah Jackson offering a $10,000 wager of his own.

XSET Juicy, who plays PUBG Mobile competitively, also fired back – saying maybe gaming on mobile is too “difficult” for Doc to handle.

Nothing might come from this or Dr Disrespect actually might take up one of the offers, in a way to shoot down mobile gamers who stand in his way.

No matter what, though, he’s certainly achieved his objective of drumming up some debate. What happens next should be interesting.
