While Dr Disrespect was thrilled that TimTheTatman and DrLupo left Twitch for YouTube, he was also quick to admit that Twitch is still by far the better streaming platform.
TimTheTatman and DrLupo made headlines with their huge moves from Twitch to YouTube, and they may be joined shortly by Nickmercs, but despite all that Dr Disrespect thinks that YouTube is nowhere near Twitch as a streaming platform.
Dr Disrespect broke down several reasons why Twitch is superior despite his friends jumping ship to YouTube. Two of the biggest being it was hard to discover streams given the format of YouTube, with no real Twitch style directory of live channels and everything buried under VODS and other videos, and that without the ability to host other channels or have his chat interact when his streams were offline, it killed the sense of community on YouTube.

Fwiz and YouTube gaming have promised big changes, but if Dr Disrespect is right, those changes need to come much sooner than later.
