Twitch streamer Brett ‘Dakotaz‘ Hoffman has slammed Mixer star Tyler ‘Ninja‘ Blevins, over comments he made regarding creators criticism of Fortnite. 

Ninja and Dakotaz have been taking shots at each other, disagreeing over whether content creators should be able to criticize the game they are playing. Ninja has clashed with other Fortnite personalities in the past over this matter, including Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney, saying that if they no longer like the game, they should simply stop playing it.

On December 20, Blevins released a video to Twitter, in which he lashed out at streamers for criticizing Fortnite, encouraging them instead to go and play other games. Dakotaz has hit back in dramatic fashion on December 24.

In a clip from his Christmas Eve stream, Dakotaz confirmed he had blocked the Mixer star: “It must be tough to get blocked, being Ninja,” he said. “I wonder what that feels like. Not everyone’s gonna kiss your ass in life, buddy.”

“Now you don’t have to read my tweets,” he continued. “You don’t have to complain about me anymore. Next time you make a video about me, [tag] me, p*ssy. Until then, take a seat.”

The 31-year-old is referencing Blevins criticism of streamers who are perceived to hate on the games they play. Some side with Ninja, while others argue that playing a game does not stop an individual from being able to criticize the game in question.

Dakotaz has since followed up his on-stream comments with a number of critical tweets, in which he says that he blocked Blevins because he doesn’t “need a snowflake sending his 12-year-old army on me”.

However, he does point out that Ninja has done big things for streamers and the streaming community, but that he’s “done” with the Mixer star.

As of the publication of this article, Ninja has not responded to the comments made by Dakotaz, and has not elaborated further on his earlier criticisms.

With the two’s beef showing no signs of slowing down, we will continue to update you on this story as more information becomes available.

An epic conclusion for TommyInnit main quest in the Dream SMP Minecraft server lit up Twitch like few streams have before, earning the UK personality a spot in the top broadcasts of all time.

It was a long time coming for Tommy, starting out the stream reminiscing about all of the Minecraft shenanigans he was a part of since he joined YouTuber Dream’s custom server in July 2020.

He titled his stream ‘The Dream SMP Finale’ and that was more than enough to generate an insane amount of hype that quickly saw his sub-two hour broadcast garner hundreds of thousands of viewers.

The Disc Saga came to a close with a shocking revelation, but not before Tommy put his name in the annals of Twitch lore. Everyone must have taken notice, since his viewer count easily eclipsed 100,000 in no time at all.

TommyInnit easily blew by 500,000 viewers during his Dream SMP Minecraft Twitch stream.

From there the digital counter just kept climbing, eventually peaking at around 650,000 concurrent viewers for the content creator.

That gives the YouTuber the third highest concurrent viewer stream on Twitch, only trailing Grefg who peaked at 660,000 viewers in early December 2020 during the Fortnite Galactus event, just to demolish that mark a month later on January 11 by reaching 2.5 million viewers.

Even if we include company channels that usually host events, TommyInnit’s January 20 stream still places 6th on the all-time highest peak viewers list on Twitch ahead of Ninja (8th), Ibai (10th), shroud (12th), and more, according to TwitchTracker.

The Minecraft community showed up for Tommy on his big day as well as people who were tuning in to see the main man of the server, Dream, come alive (and then die, just to be imprisoned).

For those who were in the ‘know,’ Tommy’s latest stream was the culmination of months on end journeying across the SMP server and its cast of colorful characters, with many wanting to tune in to see it live.

And Tommy didn’t discount the possibility of returning to the server soon. So who knows, maybe this won’t be the last time that TommyInnit puts up wild numbers on Twitch for his Minecraft antics.
