Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel had a blast playing Pokemon Sword and Shield on November 14, much to the chagrin of fellow Twitch streamer Dr Disrespect who made his displeasure known.

Ever since becoming a variety streamer and leaving the world of pro Overwatch behind, xQc has risen to the top of Twitch. According to the third-party website Twitch Metrics, Felix’s channel is the most-watched variety channel on the entire platform.

Part of his success has come from playing games like the newly-released Pokemon Sword and Shield. However, with the success also comes envy and Dr Disrespect made his opinion on xQc’s popular streams well-known.

Taking to Twitter, the two-time claimed he was tired of seeing xQc broadcasting to 30,000 viewers while playing Pokemon.

“This is my platform and you know it,” Doc said, tagging the French Canadian. For his part, however, the former Overwatch World Cup MVP wasn’t intimidated in the slightest and had a tactical nuke of a reply up his sleeve.

“Ok boomer,” Lengyel wrote back racking up nearly 1,500 retweets in the process.

The term “ok boomer” has gone viral in recent weeks with major news outlets covering the surging popularity of the Millennial-crafted phrase.

The phrase is designed to dismiss the opinions of the Baby Boom generation, otherwise known as “boomers.” It’s short, swift and gets the point across. Most importantly, it shut Dr Disrespect up, for the most part.

“You son of a,” the two-time responded, but didn’t bother cursing. He did, however, warn the popular variety streamer that this wouldn’t be the last he would hear of him.

With Dr Disrespect’s former top Twitch rival shroud now over on Mixer, it’s possible that he’ll be feuding with xQc next.

The two are some of the most dominating personalities on the platform and seeing the duo clash on stream could be a real treat, especially considering how capable the two are at dishing it out.

Now, if only there was a way to get Doc and Felix to have a Pokemon battle.

Like most popular streamers, Shroud has been getting stuck into the World of Warcraft: Shadowlands grind, but although he’s enjoyed it so far, he said he feels like the game is “less immersive” than it used to be.

World of Warcraft: Shadowlands has taken the world by storm ever since it launched on November 23. Players have been hopping back into Azeroth to take the reigns of their characters once again.

Popular streamers like Mike ‘Shroud’ Grzesiek have been getting stuck into the grind too. He’s been very open about how much he loves the game and has streamed hours upon hours of World of Warcraft Classic. He even said he was willing to lose viewers to stream it.

Shroud has thoroughly enjoyed playing World of Warcraft for many years now.

However, Shroud isn’t blinded by his love and adoration for the game. He still has some criticism for World of Warcraft: Shadowlands and MMORPGs in general, and he mentioned them in his latest stream.

“I feel like [MMORPG’s] and WoW, in general, have transcended into something completely different,” he said. “In the past, you [played] because you were immersed. You were leveling up your character. You were getting new items. It felt good to be more powerful and do better things.”

“Now I feel like WoW is like play with friends and kill some shit,” he said. “That feeling of immersion and truly having an impact on the world and your character feeling there has kind of nullified.”

“When I played vanilla WoW in 2005, I was 11 years old, and it felt amazing,” he said. “It felt incredible. It felt like I was in my own realm. I was in my own world. Now it doesn’t feel like that. That feeling is gone.

The relevant part of the video starts at 2:00.

It’s a sentiment that others have echoed time and time again. The consensus is that MMORPGs have been streamlined throughout the years.

However, it hasn’t stopped millions of players, including Shroud, from enjoying World of Warcraft: Shadowlands. 

Plus, despite his criticism, he thinks now is the “best time” for new players to start playing the game because the new leveling process is “really cool.”
