Why Fans Are Begging For This Dream Stream

At most points during the day, you can log in to Twitch and see Minecraft at the top of the "Categories" list, bringing in thousands of viewers. In fact, in 2020, it was the most-watched game on YouTube. One popular Minecraft streamer and YouTuber, Dream, has recently begun streaming on Discord instead of Twitch, and fans have taken to Twitter to ask for a more accessible stream.

Dream fan and Twitter user PandacanPVP posted a screenshot of Dream's Discord server, which is completely full while he's streaming. They pointed out that only 99 people can join a voice channel on Discord at one time. This severely limits the number of people who can watch Dream's streams, and considering the Minecraft player has almost 19 million followers on YouTube, this left a lot of fans on the sidelines.

Dream's Minecraft content has historically pulled in millions of views, and even his Twitch VODs reached into the millions, despite the fact that he has only streamed four times in the past two months. According to PandacanPVP, Dream has talked about streaming on an alternate account being more relaxing for him. This might explain why Dream decided to hop over to Discord, where he could stream for a much smaller audience. PandacanPVP mentioned that his fans were "begging" him to consider using another account besides the Discord server.

Many fans were quick to jump in and support PandacanPVP's request, but there were several people who criticized the tweet. Some fans believed that it was too much of a forceful request, particularly when it's clear that Dream doesn't want to be in the spotlight at the moment. However, PandacanPVP responded that it was a "lighthearted suggestion," and one that Dream allegedly said on his private stream could be possible. Twitter user Kayt mentioned that Dream said "he streams in the [D]iscord because he isn't comfortable streaming to his audience again." 

Dream's reluctance to stream to a large audience may be due to a number of factors, including the recent drama that occurred when another YouTuber pretended to send messages from fake Dream accounts. Dream has also come under fire in the past, having been accused of achieving his impressive Minecraft speedruns by cheating. Although Dream remains popular with viewers, he has definitely seen his fair share of controversy in a relatively short amount of time.

This isn't the first time Minecraft fans have been vocal regarding a popular content creator, and it probably won't be the last. Last year, PewDiePie was criticized for ending his Minecraft series on YouTube.
