Awesome Twitch Stream: DefiantDoug

When it comes to gaming creator backgrounds, it is always cool to see that someone is invested in a game or a genre. At the same time, it’s also great to see that they have versatile real-world experiences as well. Douglas Bason and his DefiantDoug Twitch stream are a place that covers both things at the same time! Doug is a US Army veteran who served between 2012 and 2019, but also a very serious competitive player of FPS games.

In fact, he spent the last eight years in the process of becoming the best FPS player he can be and the results speak for themselves. Presently, he is focusing on the Call of Duty series and the newly emerging Valoriant. In CoD: Modern Warfare, Doug was in the 10 Globally for PC on MP and Top 10 Overall for Cross play. This means that he reached the top .0049 percent of all Call of Duty players. 

 In other games, he’s also made quite a few accomplishments. This is Platinum for the last seven seasons of Rainbow Six: Siege, top 500 NA for Battalion 1944, and Global Elite / A ESEA in CS:GO. Even in the new CoD: Warzone, Doug quickly found his footing so he is in the top 1700 for wins. Naturally, to get to results like this you need to be dedicated as hell. Doug plays every day, streaming usually from 11 AM - 3:30 PM EST and 9:30 PM to 2 AM EST on workdays. On the weekend, he usually plays between 9 PM and 3 AM EST. This adds up to around 50 hours per week streaming and playing.

However, throughout all of this, Doug was and remains dedicated to both his craft and the community of players and veterans around it. Firstly, as a veteran himself, he understands the challenges many former military members face. This is why he’s a part of the Alpha Nerds Guild, a community of gamers who aim to help veterans, first responders and LEOs who are battling issues like anxiety or PTSD. But, even individually, Doug wants to help develop other players so they too can compete at their highest levels.

Thanks to all of this, it is no wonder that his Twitch audience numbers over 1,550 followers. If you too would like to see what Doug all about, follow him on Twitter and don’t forget to check out his DefiantDoug Twitch channel!
