Popular streamer Imane ‘League of Legends.

However, on October 25, Poki explained that she would be taking a break from streaming because she needed some time for herself. While some fans may have expected the hiatus to last a day or so, she still hasn’t returned. So, when will she be back?

TwitterPokimane is closing in on 3.5 million followers on Twitch.

When will Pokimane return to Twitch?

Unfortunately, no one is quite sure when Pokimane will return. Her tweet didn’t give any real answers beyond “a few days off from streaming” and “I’ll see you soon.”

At the time of writing, Poki’s last stream came on October 22, meaning she’s had almost a week away from the platform. If she was to stream again after a week, that would put her return date at Monday, October 28 but that’s unknown – at least for now.

What will Pokimane do when she comes back to Twitch?

Before her break the popular streamer had been dabbling in the Just Chatting and League of Legends categories so it’s probably pretty likely that it’ll be a similar story whenever she comes back. 

When it comes to being in the just chatting section, Poki can usually be found reacting to videos with her viewers or even offering up some advice based on the questions they send in. It’s not always genuine, though, as some fans hilariously tried to troll her housemate Fedmmyster with relationship advice

During her previous two streams, Pokimane had been averaging around 12,000 viewers according to TwitchMetrics, so a break will more than likely see her receiving a bump up. 

That’s usually the case for streamers who take a break – of their own choice or thanks to a suspension – as fans want to see what they’re going to do upon their return.

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.
