Dr Disrespect may have just entered the intense world of Escape From Tarkov, but the streamer admits he is already addicted just days into playing it, explaining why he finds the game to be so intriguing.

The Doc is a lover of violence, speed, and momentum in his video games, but the streamer has long been complaining about a lack of options in terms of titles he can play while broadcasting, growing frustrated with battle royales like Fortnite, Apex Legends, and PUBG.

On New Year’s Eve, the leader of the Champions Club finally decided to try his hand at Escape From Tarkov, a tactical first-person shooter which has caught the eye of fellow creators like Jaryd ‘Summit1g’ Lazar and Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek, and two years after claiming he would never play the title, Dr Disrespect has admitted that he’s become addicted to it just three days after hopping in for the first time.

Escape From Tarkov has become an addiction for Dr Disrespect.

Following another successful stream on January 2, The Doc posted a tweet showing himself inside the game, complete with his legendary “prototype” sunglasses and his iconic moustache, featuring the simple caption: “I have a slight adiction.”

As for why he’s so addicted, Dr Disrespect explained in detail why the game feels so different to anything else on the market, and how the elements and systems that provide the Tarkov experience are what has captured him in the few short days he’s been playing the game.

“What’s surprised me is that there’s something very attractive about how I have these quests,” he explained to the Champions Club. “This whole dynamic of scavenging, having NPCs and player-controlled scavengers, and these intervals of which you enter and extract from a server. It’s that whole meta of the game, it’s very intriguing. That compliments the whole looting, valuing of objects, the detail of the guns and all that stuff. I like it. It’s unique.”

Of course, Dr Disrespect isn’t the only streamer to have had a go at Escape From Tarkov recently, with Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel breaking into a classic rant when he found it difficult to kill an enemy in the game, claiming they were “invincible.”

Expect to see plenty more of the game from The Doc though, with his addiction likely to grow even stronger as he continues to learn about the tactical FPS title.

KSI calls out Jake Paul after YouTuber KO’s Nate Robinson in boxing bout

It’s been no time at all, but Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji has already called out Jake Paul ahead of their prospective bout at Madison Square Garden, saying that after his performance against Nate Robinson, Paul stands no chance.

It was the fight everyone had their eyes on November 28. On the undercard of Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr, YouTuber Jake Paul was set to bout with NBA star Nate Robinson.

What we got instead was a bloodbath. Robinson was trounced by Paul, getting knocked down multiple times before Paul laid the final blow in the second round. Robinson barely laid a glove on Paul despite coming out all guns blazing.

While millions watched, there was one spectator on the sidelines with more on the line than most ⁠— Jake Paul’s next prospective opponent, KSI.

The YouTuber has already faced off against Paul’s older brother Logan, beating the American not once but twice. Jake fancies his chances a little bit better, but KSI wasn’t impressed by the younger brother’s skills against Robinson.

As soon as the fight ended, KSI already started the war back up with the Pauls. “I saw nothing special from Jake lol. Soon come,” he said on Twitter.

The thinly-veiled threat at Jake Paul is alluding to their prospective bout at Madison Square Garden, pending the current global situation.

Paul has been pretty vocal about making sure the fight goes ahead, saying he has a point to prove against the British YouTuber. “KSI vs Jake Paul is 100% gonna happen. If I die without that happening, I would be so upset. It has to happen, for the culture,” he said in September.

While Paul didn’t direct address KSI post-fight ⁠— instead calling out Conor McGregor for a bout ⁠— the rivalry between the two YouTubers is fierce.

One can only hope they do actually make good on their promise and get in the ring.
