Dr Disrespect explains why he can’t enjoy Apex Legends after hilarious rage quit

Apex Legends isn’t satisfying his needs after having one of his classic rage moments.

Coming off a nearly month-long ban, the Doc is back in full force sharing his violence, speed, and momentum with the gaming community.

He gave the new season of Apex Legends a whirl but quickly determined it wasn’t for him and explained how it just never felt right to him.

Twitch/Dr DisrespectDoc hasn’t liked what he has seen so far with Apex Legends Season 2.

Instead of playing with a squad of friends, Doc went into Apex playing with randoms and that’s always a recipe for disaster.

As he was hitting the ground, he quickly went for the gold body armor, which was snagged by a teammate just before him, causing him to go on a profanity-laced tirade.

 

Due to there not being many other options out there, the Two-time is still playing Apex, but you can definitely tell he’s not enjoying it a whole lot.

“I don’t feel like playing Apex, I don’t know,” he said. “It just doesn’t satisfy me, I don’t know, man. It’s one of those games that just never really satisfied me. It just doesn’t satisfy that little tick that I’m looking for in a game, it never has. I don’t know, the thrill of killing someone or downing someone, I don’t get it from it.

Doc is notoriously tough on games but he generally hasn’t had a lot of positive things to say about Apex Legends since its launch.

He has noted before that the game was headed down a similar path that doomed H1Z1, and it doesn’t sound like he’s really backed off that stance.

The self-proclaimed face of Twitch has only been back on the platform for two days now but he has already complained about Apex and had a good old fashioned rage aimed at the battle royale.

In fact, the body armor rage wasn’t even the first one he had.

“What is this game,” he yelled. “Get me off this game. Get me off of it. I don’t wanna play this game. I’m already falling asleep playing this game.”

Unfortunately, it’s pretty much between this, Fortnite and PUBG and we’re honestly not sure what Doc would prefer at this point.

Respawn Senior Game Designer wants more “non-BR” modes in Apex Legends

Respawn Senior Game Designer Daniel Z. Klein is a big fan of Apex Legends’ non-BR modes, and would want the studio to experiment with a few more concepts after seeing how successful the Winter Express has been.

Admittedly, Klein isn’t a part of the game modes team at Respawn, but the senior developer gave his preference on which direction the battle royale could take from here. Previous modes like Hunt and the Winter Express tweaked Apex’s typical formula, giving players something different to get their hands on.

The team at Respawn has proven they can make modes that don’t feed into the normal BR format but still create products that resonate with their players. Klein would like to see more of this out of Apex in the following seasons, though has said there’s not much to reveal on that front as of yet.

“I really want us to try more non-BR things; I think Winter Express was a wonderful proof of concept that Apex can be super fun in non-BR modes,” he said on Reddit. “I think something Mario Party-like, like (League of Legends’) Nexus Blitz, would probably be a bit too much for a game like Apex, but there are LOTS of cool things we could do.”

He isn’t wrong on that final point. Aside from being a solid battle royale in the bustling genre, Apex Legends has something unique that not many games can boast about: it’s incredible characters.

Respawn have injected a vast amount of lore and personality into their cast of 15 Legends, meaning they can produce nearly any mode they want without struggling with how it logistically fits into the game.

We kind of got a taste of that type of ingenuity with the Fight or Fright Collection Event, that showed Pathfinder teleporting into a night version of Kings Canyon which introduced the Shadowfall mode.

Now that there’s vehicles and loads of new gameplay mechanics in Season 7, non-BR modes like races, new PvE concepts, and more can be a frontrunner for possibilities to explore.

Like Klein said, there isn’t anything Respawn are ready to announce for Apex Legends as of yet, but players have loads of content to hold them over until they do.
