Dr Disrespect calls out streamers who team up in Escape From Tarkov

Twitch star Dr Disrespect took aim at his fellow streamers for having their hands held in Escape from Tarkov while he plays all by his lonesome, attempting to take on the world with his trademark violence, speed, and momentum.

Ever since Battlestate Games made free drops available from Escape from Tarkov streams, the incredibly realistic shooter has become one of the most-watched games on Twitch. Its growth has allowed smaller streamers to rocket up in popularity, while also adding viewers to already established channels.

Even though the drops have since gone away and some viewers have gone back to watching other titles, plenty of streamers have stuck around. That includes Dr Disrespect who, unlike many of his fellow broadcasters, has been spending the majority of his time playing as a solo rather than in a group of streamers.

Escape from Tarkov’s streamers can regularly be found going through raids in groups.

During his January 9 stream, The Doc had been coming to a close when he took a break from one of his final raids to talk to his chat. After taking a few questions and making a few observations, he explained why he doesn’t find it all that impressive that his fellow streamers are teaming up to tear through raids. 

“You’ve got to remember though, all these other guys are playing with their groups, their friends, and the duos,” said the Doc. 

He added: “So when you see another streamer and they’re just smoking through a f**king level, that’s because they’ve got some high-end, four or five thousand hour male assistant to guide them, ok. Like, that’s not impressive to me. You go do what I do!” 

Of course, the Two-Time isn’t averse to having some assistance of his own in games – he regularly plays duos in PUBG, in fact – but Tarkov has been a way for him to spread his wings and prove that he’s still got that high-level solo skill.

He might need some back-up later down the line, especially if the game continues with its growth, but for now, you’ll be able to catch him riding solo.

World of Warcraft Shadowlands finally arrived on November 23 and while one Twitch streamer drove home far too fast to load it up with friends, the Police officer who stopped them completely understood. 

As many members of the community will know, the game’s latest expansion will bring together loads of new and returning players for an all-new story. There’s Covenants to mess around with, new quests to try out, and many will have been rushing home to play it after work.

Though, speeding is against the highway code and by driving too fast you are putting others in danger – which meant one streamer was unfortunately told to pull over by the Cops.

Usually, this would lead to a speeding ticket, but after explaining their reason for going too fast – to get home and throw Shadowlands on – the officer came in clutch and decided to turn a blind eye in what was quite a remarkable story.

Shadowlands is finally here and some are getting a bit to exicted.

Shadowlands saves Twitch streamer a speeding ticket

On release day, streamer bbnogames was already playing Shadowlands when his friend called, who presumably also streams with him.

They said: “Bro, hahaha. The Cop was like ‘yo, you know how fast you were going?’ I’m like dude I’m so sorry, this game is dropping soon, all my friends are waiting for me.

“He’s like ‘Shadowlands?’ And I’m like yeah, and he’s like OK go!”

 

After that, he said he was just five minutes away and eventually joined the team playing online. After that remarkable exchange with the Police officer, things went without a hitch, when really he could have been left with a hefty ticket to pay for his troubles.

Instead, they were able to link up together later in the night and jump into World of Warcraft’s latest expansion. Maybe next time, he won’t be so lucky.
