Dr Disrespect caught red-handed reinstalling PUBG after ‘forgetting’ to end stream

Dr. Disrespect has a love/hate relationship with Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds and after uninstalling the game during a stream on Monday, August 19, he got caught with his hand in the cookie jar reinstalling the game after his sign off.

Doc has had a big week, after showing up to the 2019 CWL Championships in a rented Lamborghini on August 16, he attempted to channel the dark forces of the underworld to improve his PUBG performance.

Unfortunately, it seems like Beelzebub put Doc on hold because his luck didn’t get any better, which led to the streamer uninstalling PUBG yet again during the stream, only to get ‘caught’ reinstalling it after signing off for the day.

What’s Doc’s problem with PUBG?

After missing what appeared to be a dead on headshot on an enemy player in a window, Doc said he liked the concept of PUBG, but the current state of the game was too much to handle.

“The game design is great, the pacing is great, the way the weapons feel, leading shots, arcing bullets full of velocity, the idea of the armor system – I think it’s all fantastic,” Doc told viewers. “But I think there is a level of deeper concern with how this game is programmed, with this shit engine.”

“Do me a favor Glen (Schofield), get that team of yours, and get rid of these fucking problems,” The streamer said. “It’s making me sick.”

Schofield, a co-founder of Sledgehammer Games, joined the PUBG Corporation earlier in 2019 to head up a new triple-A development studio called Striking Distance based in Los Angeles that will develop “an original narrative in the PUBG universe.”

But it seems like Doc’s uninstalling of PUBG was only temporary, as he was “caught” with his stream up after his outro reinstalling the game.

Doc’s on-stream production is usually spot on, so the chances of this being an actual slip up and not a gag are pretty slim, but that doesn’t make it any less entertaining.

What else is Doc up to?

Apart from his ongoing war with PUBG, Doc also released his latest chart-topping single dedicated to all his stream snipers.

“Give ‘Em The Love” (written by J+1 AKA Jason Folks) doesn’t actually say anything about stream snipers in the song, but Dr Disrespect did say it was dedicated to those fans who just can’t get enough.

Even though Doc may have more problems with PUBG than you can shake a can of moustache wax at, it’s still a major part of his channel and doesn’t seem to be going away, permanently anyway.

OWL star Matthew “Super” DeLisi has been added as a guest on the show for the second time, linking up with popular presenter Jimmy Fallon. 

The Overwatch League is full of shining personalities, but it’s safe to say that the captain of reigning back-to-back champions San Francisco Shock is one of the league’s boldest and brightest.

The 20-year-old main tank player has certainly won the hearts of OWL fans, not only because his plays are the definition of brilliance, but because in every interview he features in his enthusiasm for the game is infectious.

This is likely why Jimmy Fallon has elected to bring back the OWL star for the 26 October episode of the classic American talkshow, The Tonight Show.

This isn’t Super’s first time on The Tonight Show

Back in 2019 Super made his inaugural television appearance alongside former Overwatch flex player turned Valorant star Jay ‘Sinatraa’ Won. Both players provided America’s viewers with insight into how the esports world works, discussing their rigorous schedules and sharing how many hours they sink into the game.

Super’s guest appearance on the show coincided with the team’s 2019 victory over the Vancouver Titans in the OWL finals, therefore it makes a lot of sense that Super has been asked to return to the show following a dominant performance over Seoul Dynasty.

When to watch and why

It’s nice to see esports becoming more prominent in mainstream media, so it’s worth tuning in to support the growth of esports, as well as learn a little bit about Overwatch as well. Super certainly knows the game inside out.

You can tune in to watch The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon at 11:35pm ET on NBC on Monday, 26 October to see Super alongside superstars Sterling K. Brown and Zoe Lister-Jones.
