Dr Disrespect is well-known for his hilarious speeches and rants while streaming, and roasted Matt ‘Nadeshot’ Haag when he tried to give his team a boost during Modern Warfare matches.

Nadeshot is a former Call of Duty pro player, best known for his time as the face of OpTic Gaming, where he teamed up with legendary players such as Seth ‘Scump’ Abner and Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper during his spell with the Green Wall.

Back in the day, Nadeshot was the motivator of any squad he was on, taking the reigns when times got tough, with many long-time fans remembering the “play like we’re at home” speech he gave as OpTic struggled in a grand finals match against Evil Geniuses.

ActivisionNadeshot and Scump played together on a number of OpTic rosters.

After going to a third and final map alongside The Doc and Michael ‘Di3seL’ Carr during Modern Warfare GameBattles matches, the 100 Thieves CEO decided it was time to rally the troops, breaking out a motivational speech as he tried to spur the trio on to victory.

“Alright, let’s win this match boys, we aren’t losing this s**t,” Nadeshot told his teammates. “Game Three, this is where we show the f**k up and win this game!”

“These kids think we’re old, bad, decrepit, they think we f**king suck! Guess what, we are better than they are. We want it more, we smell better, we have better haircuts, we have freshly trimmed toenails! They don’t!”

While Nadeshot may have hoped he could rally everyone heading into the final map, it seems his speech didn’t work, with Dr Disrespect immediately roasting him. The streamer pondering what it must have been like to be inside the booth with him back in his professional days, before comparing him to Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and his pre-match talk.

The Doc replied: “I really couldn’t imagine being Scump and having to listen to your pre-game speeches on the mainstage.”

“It must have been god-awful. I wish we had a TurtleBeach listen-in on some of those, that would have been good. You kind of remind me of Russell Wilson to a certain degree.”

“You couldn’t give me a little gas?” Nadeshot asked. “You just had to go for the dagger,” before complaining that The Doc’s roast had “derailed” him.

The entire exchange certainly didn’t help the team though, who went on to blow a 4-1 lead and lose five consecutive rounds.


NICKMERCS claims Warzone is “not looking good” compared to Fortnite

From Fortnite to Call of Duty: Warzone and back, NICKMERCS is as experienced in both battle royales as anyone. After jumping back into Epic Games’ iteration, he claims the third-person shooter has a serious edge over Warzone right now.

In a long overdue Fortnite return stream with SypherPK, another battle royale maestro, FaZe Clan and MFAM’s Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff got back into the groove and decided it was time to compare his favorite BR titles. Of course, with so many followers, the MFAM audience deserves an explanation for the change in content.

While the popular streamer built his following in Epic Games’ unique title, his Twitch following grew to a whopping 4.6 million followers with thanks to months spent popping off on Verdansk. Having hosted, participated, and won Warzone tournaments in that span, he’s flown into the world’s top 15 most-followed Twitch streamers.

But, with Call of Duty’s sights set on the Black Ops Cold War release, Warzone has lost some lustre and NICKMERCS has returned to the consistently-updated Fortnite. Fittingly, he proceeded to explain that those updates give Fortnite an edge over Warzone.

It took Nick some time to get used to Fortnite’s mechanics, as he and SypherPK delved into the differences between the two games’ aim assists and how exponential and linears differ between the two. Ultimately, despite the discomfort upon switching over, the BR aficionado found himself loving it.

To explain his intentions in trying Fortnite again, NICKMERCS minced no words: “Listen, the current state over on the Call of Duty side of things is not looking good. There was supposed to be a big update coming in December, we haven’t heard anything about that. Really not good.”

And then, to contrast why Fortnite feels like the superior BR right now, he couldn’t help but give props to Epic Games’ consistent content delivery: “On the other hand, for Fortnite, there’s big-time updates and map changes right around the corner before Christmas.”

Fortnite’s shop gets consistent action, while Warzone’s is very quiet right now.

Fortnite and Apex Legends follow a similar format as titles, where the game is free and updated seasonally. Warzone was Call of Duty’s successful effort to do the same, but things became complicated by BOCW’s release.

Now, Warzone’s seasonal content schedule has been disrupted by Activision’s focus on selling BOCW. The company is trying to get the best of both worlds: a free battle royale’s player base with the money of an annual title like FIFA, Madden, and NBA 2K franchises.

By putting their money into BOCW tournaments and content, CoD seems to have pushed NICKMERCS to return to a game that, distraction-free, is regularly putting out content.
