If anyone has played enough Warzone to recommend new features for the game, it’s the Two-Time. Whilst streaming, Dr Disrespect revealed that he’d like to see custom match settings implemented into Warzone with the release of Cold War.

Since the Doc’s move to Youtube as a streaming platform, his notoriety and popularity have only risen.

With over 3 million subscribers and a dedicated community he calls the ‘Champions Club’, Dr Disrespect has become one of the most recognizable online personalities on screen.

His passion for the FPS genre is renowned and if anyone can offer new ideas for the future of Warzone, it’s him. In a recent stream, he discussed why he thinks custom match settings should be added to Warzone.

The addition of private Warzone lobbies has been rumored for a while now.

Dr Disrepect’s Suggestion For Warzone

The Doc isn’t the first player or personality to suggest custom settings for Warzone game modes. It’s an aspect of the game that the community has been requesting for a long time now.

The ability to control and customize individual elements of a match gives the player a wealth of gameplay possibilities. Here’s exactly what the Doc had to say on the topic.

“I really hope they consider this for Cold War… making sure that each game mode whether it’s Solos, Duos, Trios or Quads gets its own set of custom settings.”

Of course, it would be tricky to give players complete control over every online match of Warzone. However, that’s where private lobbies come in to play.

Private Warzone Lobbies

Private Warzone lobbies appear to be the perfect solution for players seeking a complete custom experience. This would allow Infinity Ward to grant players the freedom they are seeking whilst maintaining the integrity of the main game modes. On top of this, private lobbies are an ideal feature for tournament organizers, allowing them to adjust and disable certain mechanics.

It’s rumored Infinity Ward has plans to implement private lobbies in the near future. Fingers-crossed the changes set to evolve Warzone after the release of Cold War bring in these heavily requested features.

Dr Disrespect reveals his main complaint about Black Ops Cold War

During a recent livestream, Dr Disrespect called out Treyarch for the lack of multiplayer maps in Black Ops Cold War, stating that the game should’ve had 15 maps at minimum at launch.

When Black Ops Cold War first launched, many fans were taken aback by the fact that the game only had 8 multiplayer maps available to players.

Six of them were available in one way, shape, or form during the beta, meaning fans only had two brand new ones to experience for the first time, which annoyed the community, to say the least.

Since then, it’s become a hot talking point in the community and, while the developers did release Nuketown ’84 and plan to release new maps with the start of the first season, the general consensus seems to be that the content released is just simply not enough. Now, Dr Disrespect himself has also shared the same sentiment.

Black Ops Cold War had eight maps at launch but is now up to nine thanks to the inclusion of Nuketown.

When discussing the game during a recent broadcast, the Two-Time made it clear that he’s a big fan of BOCW’s multiplayer, except for one thing – the number of maps.

“I’m having a good time, Cold War – I like it a lot, the multiplayer,” he said. “Just don’t give me two maps, cmon [David] Vonderhaar. Put 15 in the game, minimum!”

The bit about “two maps” is referring to that fact that the only maps not previously released in the alpha or the beta were Garrison and Checkpoint, which means that there were essentially only two ‘new’ ones reserved for launch.

Afterwards, he says he has a “bag full” of prototypes, referring to map ideas, although he’s definitely joking.

That said, the Doc does have extensive experience designing maps for shooter games, having worked on Advanced Warfare with Sledgehammer Games before releasing ‘The Arena’ in Rogue Company last month.

He may certainly get his wish for “15 maps” soon, as Treyarch have promised a lot of post-launch content in BOCW, starting off with Season 1 on December 10, which is set to introduce several 6v6 maps, along with a flurry of other new things for players to enjoy.
