Dr DisRespect isn’t happy with Twitch not showcasing Code Red Blackout tournament

Dr DisRespect had a few things to say to Twitch after seeing what was being featured on the home page of the popular streaming website.

The Doc was hosting the second week of his Code Red Blackout tournament when he took a break from reading donations and subscriptions to look at something off-screen.

It quickly became clear that he was taking a look at Twitch’s homepage and upon seeing what was there, the back-to-back Blockbuster video game champion expressed his frustration at what he witnessed.

“Hey Twitch.tv, it’s absolutely amazing. I just have to call it out,” Dr DisRespect begins. “You’re telling me you’ve got Bob Ross on the front page and not the Code Red tournament.”

While watching his opponents play out the match he was in, Dr DisRespect simply sits there in silence trying to comprehend just why the tournament wasn’t getting attention from Twitch.

“We’re talking Code Red tournament with some of the biggest influencers on Twitch, right?” Dr DisRespect added during his mini-rant.

His frustrations look to be somewhat justified given that the tournament has propelled Black Ops 4 to the second overall spot on Twitch at the time of writing with over 162,000 viewers. 

Not only that but two of the top three channels on Twitch are Michael ‘Shroud’ Grzesiek and The Doc himself, with Shroud actually being the most viewed channel at the time.

Given that the tournament is coming to a close for the week, it’s unlikely that they’ll see any front page time tonight.

If Dr DisRespect continues to voice his concerns over his perceived slight, though, we could eventually see Code Red on Twitch’s home page sooner rather than later.

Black Ops Cold War devs respond to console-bricking Xbox Series X issues

Despite the Xbox Series X console just launching, Black Ops Cold War players have reportedly encountered a number of game-breaking bugs already, some that have even supposedly ‘bricked’ the hardware completely.

The new generation of gaming consoles have certainly been hard to come by. However, certain players that were able to get their hands on the Xbox Series X at launch haven’t all been feeling lucky.

Black Ops Cold War launched on the new system, alongside five other platforms. With plenty of unique hardware to account for, it’s no surprise that the release has been accompanied by some critical bugs. While some pull players from the game momentarily, others appear to be far more damaging.

If you’re playing on the Xbox Series X and notice a few crashes, it might be time to put the controller down for a little while.

Gamers that have tried to play through certain issues have reported their brand new Xbox Series X consoles outright breaking and refusing to turn back on.

Word of Caution Xbox Series X from blackopscoldwar

“My Cold War had been crashing my Series X a bunch over the weekend,” Reddit user ‘Junesfoshiz’ said. While it wasn’t a major deal at first, things soon became much worse. “I’d just reboot and move on,” they explained. “Well, when it happened this morning, it was for good. Xbox will not boot back up.”

With their console no longer functioning, they advised others with the same crashing issues to “play something else until there’s a patch.”

Treyarch already investigating Xbox issues

Treyarch is well aware of these devastating issues already. In fact, it’s the top problem on the official Trello board, with developers investigating it at this very moment. “We’re investigating all crashes and across the game,” Treyarch community manager Josh ‘FoxhoundFPS’ Torres added on Reddit.

“My immediate recommendations are to make sure that you’re using the correct version for your platform,” the community manager wrote.

Similar to those playing on the PS5, you can still access the PS4 version by mistake. This can seemingly lead to all sorts of unique problems. Double-check that you’re running the proper version of the game if your Xbox Series X has been crashing while playing Cold War.

Last but not least, “players have also shared that disabling Ray Tracing on XSX has helped.” While you won’t be using the flashy new hardware to its full potential with Ray Tracing disabled, it should prevent some devastating crashes.

An incoming patch should help mitigate a good number of these problems on the Xbox hardware, including those that brick the Series X console. However, there’s currently no ETA on when this patch will arrive.
