Top 5 streamers that don’t stream on Twitch
For years, Twitch has stood as the epicenter of all streaming. Whether it be gaming, IRL, or anything in between, streamers have historically flocked to Twitch for their broadcasts. Competitors have come and gone, primarily in form of Mixer. Backed by Microsoft, the platform initially made some huge signings despite ultimately falling. This has opened the door for other platforms try and compete.
Few things can stand up to Twitch’s inherent advantage with Twitch Prime and Amazon backing, but Youtube and Facebook particularly are making waves. These are our picks for the best streamers on platforms other than Twitch.
DrDisRespect – Speed, Violence, Momentum (on Youtube)
The 2019 Streamer of the Year was once at the top of Twitch, DrDisRespect was hands down the platform’s most prolific FPS streamer. Formerly of Call of Duty fame, working as a level designer, DrDisRespect was integral to popularization of the battle royale genre. On June 26th, 2020 DrDisRespect was suddenly and mysteriously banned from Twitch indefinitely. Little context has ever been shed on the situation and even today we still have no idea why DrDisRespect was alienated from the platform.

DrDisRespect did not simply fade away after his departure from Twitch however, as his loyal following has crossed platforms to support the Two-Time Champion. DrDisRespect is still pulling incredible numbers in terms of viewership and has maintained the same level of production. Without a doubt, DrDisRespect has made himself into one of the best ‘off-Twitch’ streamers.
Disguised Toast – Offline on Facebook
Offline TV’s near constant member, Jeremy “Disguised Toast” Wang was also a premier Twitch streamer. Disguised Toast led the Hearthstone and Teamfight Tactics scenes on Twitch and amassed both games impressive viewership. Instead of mysteriously disappearing from the platform however, Disguised Toast was offered a massive deal by Facebook to switch platforms.
Disguised Toast quickly rose to the top of all Facebook streamers. During his relatively short stay, Disguised Toast has amassed an audience of 1.5 million followers. Still streaming his regular amount and variety of games, Disguised Toast has stated several times he doesn’t regret his decision to make the switch.
LazarBeam – Code lazar
Similar to many others, Lannan “LazarBeam” Eacott made the switch from Twitch to Youtube. Most famous for his Fortnite gameplay and commentary, LazarBeam has consistently been a top tier content creator for years. In Fortnite specifically, LazarBeam’s growth in Fortnite is so renowned that it earned him his own skin in the Iconic skin series.

You can catch LazarBeam on Youtube, producing content and streaming on the platform.
Doom49 – Facebook’s rising streamer
