A heated battle between two popular streamers, DrDisrespect and PewDiePie, attracted over 3.5 million views, the highest viewership since DrDisrespect returned to streaming. In the recent stream to celebrate Doc’s first week after returning from his Twitch ban, DrDisrespect took on PewDiePie in the ultimate battle to determine the platform’s true king.
DrDisrespect, staying true to his wacky personality, started it all off by referring to PewDiePie as a little guy from Sweden who thought he had the guts. A response from PewDiePie was never going to disappoint. In a quick rejoinder, he referred to Doc as a bit of a boomer struggling with age. He went on to nudge Doc to write him his discord, and he will gladly help him around.
Who won the ultimate YouTube standoff?
These two-star streamers are funny and iconic in their unique ways, and a war of words between them will sure attract a substantial number of viewership across the globe.
“This little guy from Sweden thinks he has all the guts,” DrDisrespect charged, kicking off a storm.
As the standoff proceeded, DrDisrespect further electrified the excited viewers by acting like a boomer, which served to lighten things up. Finally, the two decided to have the battle out in Fall Guys. After mastering the rules of the competition, they jump right into the challenge. The stakes were raised high after the pair made wagers against each other.
They agreed the loser must watch the winner’s most negatively rated YouTube video. And the results were entirely unexpected; PewDiePie dominated the rounds and ended up winning the battle with better scores. And most fans think it is the first time someone was outmatching Doc in trash talk.
What has changed since Doc returned to streaming?
The team-up exposed a few things about DrDisrespect’s changing personality since returning to the streaming scene. First, the Doc is trying to shed off the ”Twitch streamer” tag. Going forward, he will be exploring new things on Youtube. Regardless of his recent Twitch fiasco, DrDisrespect is still one of the most influential gaming industry personalities. Secondly, we learn that the good Doc is not someone who gives up quickly. You pin him down, and he comes back even stronger. His resilient nature may drive him to collaborate more with other popular YouTubers in the coming future.
Why was DrDisrespect banned from Twitch?
DrDisrespect had to contend with the June 28 Twitch ban that permanently removed him from the popular platform where he enjoyed a $10 million exclusive contract. While addressing the Twitch ban, DrDisrespect said that he had no idea of the ban. He went on to explain he had done nothing to warrant the ban. He took issue with how the platform carried out the ban,”…we did not do anything to justify a ban, leave alone how they went about banning us. No prior communication. No reaching out. Nothing. Boom. Done.” He hinted that his lawyers were exploring legal action because he firmly believes the Twitch ban had broken a hefty contract.
Twitch responded with a generic statement on the matter. The platform’s spokesperson released a statement claiming that the Streamer had violated The Platform’s Community Guidelines and Services’ Terms. The violation could be anything from a DMCA copyright violation to something much worse. The ban locked DrDisrespect from a lucrative multiyear exclusive contract.
For now, DrDisrespect’s thousands of fans are happy their popular Streamer is back, albeit on another platform. But it may be several years before anyone knows exactly why he was banned from Twitch.
