The Doc spent his September 12 stream testing out the new CoD multiplayer in beta, before delivering his verdict on Infinity Ward’s soon to be released blockbuster title and revealing what would keep him playing the game after launch.
Although most of Dr Disrespect’s streams revolve around battle royale games like Apex Legends and PUBG, the streaming star showed off some of his multiplayer skills and confirmed if a competitive playlist is included with the game, he’d get stuck right in.
“If there’s a competitive playlist attached this, yes. When you play competitive it feels like you’re working towards something. It feels like every match you play there’s something on the line,” the Doc said when asked if he’d keep playing.

The Two-Time, like many in the Call of Duty community at the moment, stressed that knowing about things like progression and microtransactions were also a key part of investing time into the game.
“Depends how much content is pre-loaded on the launch date,” he continued. “I don’t know what their microtransaction plan is, how their skins look, how all that’s going to work. How often will they update the game content-wise, with weapon tuning?”
The Twitch star kept winding back to whether the game would have a battle royale playlist, something that has been hinted at in the beta: “If they do add a battle royale, woo! I mean, that’s…” before pointing to himself in reference to his love for the game mode.
There was only one question that he couldn’t answer - is Modern Warfare esports-ready? He directed his loyal Champions Club members to his friends in the pro scene like James 'Clayster' Eubanks or Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper, admitting he was “out of his element.”
Despite the Doc clearly having a good time during the beta, there was still a bit of doubt about whether he’d commit long hours to Infinity Ward’s release.
One thing is for sure though - if the rumors of a battle royale mode are true, the Two-Time will probably be the leading streamer for it on Twitch post-release, bringing violence, speed, and momentum to the blockbuster game.
