Twitch streamer Dr Disrespect lashed out at Apex Legends during his October 1 stream after losing a gunfight which he blamed on the game’s “pathetic" visual effectsbut says he's too "addicted" to stop playing.
Apex Legends officially entered Season 3 on Tuesday, October 1, but in the hours leading up to the big launch, The Doc was practicing and preparing by playing a few final matches on Season 2 and Kings Canyon, which was replaced with a brand-new map.
For the most part, these games went well, with the leader of the Champions Club picking off opponents and securing regular victories, but a gunfight which he lost quickly brought out the rage that fans of the Twitch superstar have become accustomed to.
Early in the game with 12 squads remaining, The Doc found himself in an intense battle with an enemy, peeking out from behind a wall to challenge an opponent. The battle didn’t his way though, taking immediate damage which meant a number of visual effects appearing on his screen, something he wasn’t happy about.
“I don’t even know what the f**k I’m looking at man,” Dr Disrespect raged. “I don’t even know what the f**k I’m looking at!”
“Did you see how much VFX (visual effects) were on the screen? It’s f**king pathetic man! It makes me want to walk away from the game, and then I realize that I’m getting revived so I sit back down and play the game because I’m addicted, and it sucks!”
While Doc, who has over three million followers on Twitch, was frustrated with how damage is shown on screen, it didn’t stop him from grinding the popular battle royale title with the release of Season 3, which brought some major changes to the popular battle royale title.
Players who hop into Apex Legends following the update will be greeted with a brand-new map, alongside new Legend Crypto and a host of buffs and nerfs to both weapons and characters that give the game a fresh feel as it heads into its third season.
