Twitch streamer Fortnite and PUBG out of the water, in his latest scathing attack against the games’ developers. 

It’s fair to say that the popular streamer refuses to mince his words when addressing the current state of the two games, but now he seems to have gone a step further by suggesting that he could do better. 

Not only does The Doc think that both developers are “overrated,” but now he believes – with the right backing – that he really could be capable of putting together a better game than the two current battle royale market leaders.

Epic GamesDr Disrespect thinks he could develop a game better than Fortnite, the world renowned free-to-play game.

Could Dr Disrespect do better than Fortnite and PUBG?

“They’re kind of the exact same [Epic Games and Bluehole],” he said, after streaming PUBG. “It’s such a weird thing and it sucks that the industry is being dominated by these two idiot developer groups.”

The Doc continued: “Man if I had my own studio, I’d blow both of these fucking games out of the water. I’m so passionate and I know that my talent is so much better than all of these overrated developers, I’m telling you.” 

Dr Disrespect’s past with Call of Duty

Whether or not Dr Disrespect will go on to create his own online video game to compete against the two battle royale titles is unknown at this time, but it’s not like he has no experience in game development.

    However, The Doc seems so confident in his abilities that it may be interesting to see him follow through on his comments and develop his own alternative battle royale title.

Daequan’s first tweet after 6-month hiatus sparks hope for Twitch return

Daequan ‘Daequan’ Loco has broken his six-month social media silence in time for Thanksgiving. While the tweet was short and sweet, it has given fans of the former TSM Fortnite star hope for a potential return to Twitch.

Daequan has practically disappeared from the public eye in 2020. He vowed that he’d try to return to Twitch by January 2020 after taking time off to focus on his health, but hasn’t made an appearance on the platform since December 2019.

On top of that, he’s gone quiet on socials, not posting anything since March. While he has moved in with long-time friend and former duo Hamlinz in the meantime, there wasn’t any indication he was coming back to streaming.

However, Daequan has finally broken his silence to give thanks to his fans on Thanksgiving, and tell everyone that he is getting along just fine.

“Feeling better than I have in years. Always thankful,” the short message red, with a selfie of the streamer.

The tweet has gone viral, with over 100,000 fans liking the tweet, and many of his contemporaries sending him messages of support, including TimtheTatman, NICKMERCS, and Classify.

Daequan’s eight-word return has also managed to spark hope in his fanbase of a potential return to streaming. No matter whether it’s Fortnite, or a new game that’s come out in his absence like Valorant, Daequan’s fans are itching to see him back on the platform.

There is potential for a return. Hamlinz has been a bit more active on social media, and Tfue even tried to get him to turn on the stream ⁠— even if just for a day.

No matter what though, Daequan is taking things at his own pace. He’s still on that journey to better health, and will return in his own time when he believes it’s right.

Fans of Daequan will be hoping it’s not another six months until we hear from the TSM Fortnite star again, but only time will tell if he actually commits to returning to streaming.
