How Dream's Success Has Become His Own Detriment

How Dream's Success Has Become His Own Detriment

--

"Come on, we gotta keep the light burning… Come on and Dream baby Dream…"

Dream is one of the most successful creators of the 2020s so far. Amassing nearly 20M subscribers and receiving more than 10M views on every single Minecraft Manhunt video to date. Dream has exploded into stardom and has become a modern celebrity - surpassing the title of "Internet Celebrity" - amongst the likes of James Charles and PewDiePie.

While Dream's unfathomably large success sounds like a Utopian Dream, there are also many downsides to it that I intend to cover throughout this video.

Not only has Dream been called out for the most petty reasons - such as making an edgy joke or having "Bad Music" - but he has also indulged himself in commonly disliked ideologies such as stan culture.
From Cheating in a Minecraft Speedrun all the way to owning a low efficiency Merchandise Company - Dream has experienced it all.

Today I intend to document Dream's fantastic rise to fame, and how that has unfortunately been warped into something akin to a Nightmare, as opposed to a Dream…

  • Edit: Dream has now essentially owned up to the cheating allegations, nothing in my video is changed by this fact but it's interesting to see. Additionally, it's been such a shame to see him go on a downward spiral in his responses and apologies, he can redeem himself but he's heading in the wrong direction from what I've seen. ------ Right I think it's important to clarify: In the controversy segment I cover several different issues that have actually been resolved in private. The reason I included them was not because I agree with what the opposition was saying, I was rather bringing them up as examples of conflicts he gets into Hope you lot understand that!

    • @John WayneDream is known to have a massive ego so it is not surprising that he would fight tooth and nail before even making a half hearted admission. Also known cheaters have been very angry when exposed so your point is moot anyways. I doubt many people really care that much about Dream cheating, because the main problem is how he dealt with it. First, he denies it and uses data from a very sketchy site with elementary mistakes and then sends his fans to attack the moderators who were only trying to their job, just to save face (and his ego presumably). He also has been incredibly stubborn, and even now he continues to deflect allegations. This behavior is incredibly scummy and justifiably provoked a large response. Add this with the popularity of minecraft, the size of his channel, and the fact he literally hired an astrophysicist (allegedly) made the massive backlash and attention inevitable.

  • Can I share something? It's not about dream but it's another fandom. So basically, i just posting an opinion about this content creator, and i got attacked, people replying like "deactivate" or "leave (content creator) alone" "you're stupid". I know I'm wrong because my opinion is a criticism but also those stans, instead of giving death thread or cyber bully, why can't they tell what's wrong, fix what's wrong. Why can't they chill a bit, what's so upsetting? Just if twtr app can be shut down in the whole world for a day or weeks.

    • dream stans have average intelligence, however it is a few notches lower than a normal human, as they used up their evolution points to spec onto their power, defense, and mobility allowing them to rush onto the scene when needed. they also used their extra evolution points to get the ability white knight, which allows them to know if someone in their faction or they're supporting is attacked, making them a valuable support class. overall, they have high stats and a good ability, but they are hurt immensely by lowering their intelligence, as humans are a primarily intelligence-based build, so this is not the best human build variation to pursue (apologies! just wanted to tierzoo)

  • edit: before you read, let me state that I am not a dream Stan. I enjoy his manhunts, but I don’t care about his speedrun in itself. My only complaint I am addressing is the fact that people are too thick headed to see that his speedrun was possible. I don’t deny the fact that it could have been fake, but until dream says he cheated, there is no way to know if he really did. Dream cheated his speedrun, obviously... And it’s 100% impossible to find an infinite village in a random seed or a 24 block tall cactus. And it’s also impossible to find a world with all the end portals unusable. Just as it’s impossible to find the pack.png seed or for the stronghold to be exposed. It’s all total bs and 100% impossible, because that how statistics work. Just as there haven’t been trillions of trades done and there was no chance that someone would ever get that kind of luck. YOU FOOLS!!!! LOOK A THE STATISTICS!!!! IT WAS BOUND TO HAPPEN AT SOME POINT AND IT HAPPENED TO DREAM!!!!! AND TO ADD TO THAT, ALL OF THOSE CRAZY INSANELY UNLIKELY EVENTS THAT I LISTED ABOVE HAVE OCCURRED!!!! And idk how they do it, but Ik that scicraft has found a way to manipulate MC RNG without mods or anything else!!! How unlikely is it really that dream happened to get a seed where the RNG happened to be set in his favor?!?!? HIS SPEEDRUNS MAY HAVE BEEN A 1/TRILLION CHANCE, BUT SOMEONE WAS BOUND TO HAVE THAT LUCK!!!!!! JUST LOOK AT @Vsauce ‘S VIDEO ON COINCIDENCES (I’ll edit a link in later), ITS NOT IMPOSSIBLE, BUT RATHER IMPOSSIBLE TO NOT HAVE HAPPENED AT SOME POINT IN TIME OR ANOTHER; TO ONE PERSON OR ANOTHER!!!! Edit: I know not all of these seeds I named were found randomly, but some of the projects to find such seeds were found due to similar seeds being found first: such as the broken end portals or the infinitely repeating terrain. Those named instances were searched for because people found out they were possible from randomly generating such worlds. Edit: here is the link to the video about coincidences by Vsause: deflow.info/heat/2Xmmf3naoouusZY/video.html

    • @Gamer X 2,000,000 That's the thing. It never happened to anyone else, and it never will. There are 250 million users playing Minecraft. If we were going by 1 in 100 million, only 2-3 other people could've gotten this consistent luck legitimately, which currently, no one has. And if we were going by 1 in 7.5 trillion, that's almost 100 times more than the current population of Earth, meaning that even if every single person on this planet bought, played, and started speedrunning Minecraft consistently, they still wouldn't have the same amount of luck throughout their attempts as Dream if it really was legit.

    • ​@Gamer X 2,000,000 Honestly, you don't get it, do you? 1 in 7.5 trillion, that's basically impossible for literally every calculator to calculate. It may be sort of possible for computers, but it is still humanly impossible. We're not computers, we can't get this sort of luck. Watch some videos and maybe this one again, look at some probabilities, then you'll understand. Otherwise, you're just completely lost, which currently seems so.

    • @Gamer X 2,000,000 "It's still more than possible." "And I know that some of the things I named were found with computers, but as I said, some of it was found in random seeds." Again, you're wrong here. We're not talking about the seed, and even if we were, you would still be wrong, considering that while they may be "random", they're computer-generated, not player-generated. You don't understand, computers have all these sorts of advantages us humans don't, like seed-finding techniques. Anyways, my main point is that Dream manipulated the luck involving things that were happening during his speedruns. If this were legit, then that would have a 1 in 7.5 trillion chance of happening, something that is humanly impossible in Minecraft and even in real-life standards. To compare this to other statistical data, the chance of getting struck by lightning twice in your lifetime is 1 in 7.5 million, and the chance of winning the lottery twice is 1 in 75 million. And in Minecraft player luck, another well-known Minecraft speedrunner 10 times better than Dream got a random seed that had an 8-eye portal with 4 ender pearls in a chest, a 1 in 1 million chance. No one has ever even come close to getting that luck since legitimately, and this was one occurrence. Dream's luck elapsed on 6 consecutive streams in a row. I'm sorry, but if you still don't understand even to this point, then you just don't understand probability and statistics. That's just how it is, dude. :/

    • @The Hierophant Hey, no problem! Honestly, although Dream cheating in a Minecraft Speedrun is a big deal, I don't think that Mojang would ban him for it, as the speedrunning leaderboards over at www.speedrun.com/mc are not moderated by them, but by the Minecraft Speedrunning Moderation and Verification team, as I said before (I think...), and they made the unanimous decision to just remove his cheated run off his leaderboards but not ban him, which honestly, is sort of fair, but still a bit too low of a punishment. I would say, maybe also temporarily banning him from the leaderboards for his toxic actions as well, like what you would see in popular Minecraft servers, but eh, I don't really know lol. :p Dream also admitted to "accidentally" cheating (Which in my opinion, is stupid, since how can you "accidentally" cheat?) later on, but it was way too late already, since his run got removed on December, when he admitted on May. I think this has got to do with some of the moderators finding suspicions in his former 1.15 World Record run, and removed that. After this whole controversy, Dream removed all of his runs himself from the leaderboards, but still has yet to address the toxic stans properly. :/

    • @DEflow Memers don't be sorry, thank you so much for all the information! I've been seeing the name around and some fan art and whatnot on tumblr, and I really thought it was Cryaotic at first! This is the first video about Dream that I've been reccomended, and I decided to watch just because I was curious as to who this guy actually was. That's pretty lame that he cheated a minecraft speed run, I wonder if Mojang could/would suspend his account for manipulating RNG? That seems like a pretty serious offense, especially given that a lot of games nowadays are gacha-based and manipulation of any kind can land your account banned. I dont really know too much about this stuff though, so this is just me speculating. Again, thank you so much for all the information!!!

      The HierophantThe HierophantVor 3 Tage
    • Oh, I'm so glad that you didn't know about him up until this point, because let's just say, he's not the most open content creator out there... Basically, to sum up, Dream is a Minecraft DEflowr who got popular by using the DEflow Algorithm to his advantage. All was going well, until part of his fanbase started becoming toxic, a.k.a., the "toxic stans". When it got to the point where it was noticeable, he didn't really do anything about it, and people started calling him out for it. Then, he tried defending these people by saying "not all stans are toxic" and tried changing the original definition of the word. Many people, including myself, obviously know that Dream is just trying to take advantage and manipulate his stans, since he knows that he can earn more money from them. Hell, it even got really bad when some of his own innocent fans started calling him out for this type of stuff. Oh yeah, he also got caught cheating in a Minecraft Speedrun that was top 5 at the time. The evidence? He manipulated the luck in-game to give him both a higher chance of Ender Pearls from Piglin Bartering (5% -> 15%) and a higher chance of Blaze Rods dropping from killing Blazes (50% -> 66%). The mods did an investigation that took quite a while, then they later removed his run. He got mad, trying to defend himself, and then the stans attacked some of the moderators and verifiers, not knowing that Dream did in fact cheat, and even if they did know, they also tried defending Dream by saying "it's just a game", even though Minecraft is both the biggest speedrunning game out there, as well as the #1 best-selling game of all time. Oh yeah, sorry if none of this made sense, and sorry if this is too long for you to read lol. :p

  • Fast forward to now, where Dream literally cannot defend himself against Twitter, is forced to apologise for meaningless shit, being doxxed and having people fat-shame a kid because they think it’s him. Either he has a fucking iron will to continue on or he’s masking his declining mental health. I really think he needs someone to talk to, none of what he’s been through recently can be good for his mental health. Btw: fucking fantastic video, shocked to see you don’t have more subscribers, you are criminally underrated.

  • First off, this video is pog, i'll definitely consider subscribing but you do deserve more likes and views. It's really educational and i love the editing and animation! Now, i know no one cares about my opinion but i'ma say stuff anyways. i personally am a bit of a Dream fan because he makes good content, but i do agree with most of the things covered. he's not the best person and his extremist fans really disgust me. Dream has made cringe choices and it's understandable that people don't like him and that he's slowly getting himself cancelled. But as a person who does have Dream merch, i have to disagree with that specific opinion about it. It's actually pretty good! I bought his 20 million hoodie (lol i'm actually wearing it as i'm watching this video) and the quality of it is great. It's warm and comfortable, and the cloth is nice and soft. I understand the designs aren't the greatest, they're definitely something to get used to. In a recent interview, though, Dream said the design was pretty important to him as his (correct me if i'm wrong) ex girlfriend was the one who designed it for him. But I'm focusing on the quality and the price of his merchandise- specifically his hoodies- they're actually about the same price that hoodies generally go for. Ordinary hoodies like the ones you find in stores are usually 30-60 dollars because of the quality of the material. Since they're more durable and complicated than shirts, they go for a higher price. His merchandise is a higher price like countless other internet celebrities and smaller businesses because they're not supported by official big-brand clothing stores, so they have to cover the expensive cost of making them as well as their own profit. (their own profit is the only thing they really care about, so it makes sense the merch is expensive anyways) So, all in all, not trying to judge, but his merch isn't really worth all of the controversy. It's just like everyone elses. But this is really just my opinion. I definitely don't speak for everyone and this could easily just be as unnessecary as Trump's tweets. ^^ edit: lol all the comments here are talking about the real issue while i'm here saying his hoodie is nice- i need to fix my priorities adkjjdkjdf

  • 1. "16 is legal in UK", that means many things, but people is thinking dirty, its them who have a wrong not dream said. Thats basically describing learning 2. That #1 guy probably got a fright when Dream come close to beating him. I demanded 2 things, 1. The #1's footage of the speedruns and; 2. The equations he used to get those percentages out (If you could provide me the sources, i will be thankful)

  • If we take the name "Dream" out of it, this could be the biggest example case of a misguided need for popularity for many children who approach the internet, or just people aware of popular people in general. Same exact thing happened with Leafy years ago (his content revolved around drama, but the concept of "rapid growth, toxic fans" remains the same). I think one thing that can be taken away from this is that before anyone seeks fame, they should always understand what they're getting themselves into. What fame will actually mean to themselves and their audiences. I still don't know this that well yet. Rapid success like Dream will instantly garner an ego and insecure defensiveness as a substitute for honesty. Sure it's his fault, but it's a trap most people don't see and that Dream unfortunately fell into. I know I've basically said what was in the video, but I thought I'd share my thoughts anyway.

  • I'm concerned about some creepy behaviour that dream has shown: first there's the tommyinnit situation, then there's the fact that he calls his stans kittens, the "stan supremacy" bio thing and finally, and the most concerning to me, it's the fact that he posted a his phone number on a private twitter account to interact with his fans (which are mostly minors)
