Controversies and celebrities go hand-in-hand. Dream, too, had been a part of one when he was accused of cheating in a speedrun.
In December 2020, Dream was accused of cheating to go through several Minecraft speed runs. A video was uploaded by the Speedrun Minecraft head and YouTuber, Geosquare, where he stated that Dream’s game was modified to manipulate the pearl banter and rod drop rates.
However, the case was concluded with the fact that the odds to Dream’s chances in the game were 1 in 7.5 trillion, and it was nearly impossible to do for what he was being accused of.
Another YouTuber and streamer, Karl Jacobs, responded to the incident and stated Dream had an unfair advantage over others with his modified version.
What Games Does Dream Play?
Dream sticks to playing Minecraft and does not stream consistently. He has just over 170 hours in the Minecraft category on Twitch. He streams the MC championships when participating in the famous Minecraft tournament, which occurs monthly.

One of the most successful series from his YouTube journey is Minecraft Manhunt which has successfully gathered millions of views.
