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.

Conor McGregor explains why YouTube boxing is “good business” for the sport

Jake Paul and Logan Paul helped popularize ‘YouTube Boxing’ in recent years, although it’s often described as a mockery of the sport. However, Conor McGregor explained why he isn’t against it and thinks it’s good business.

Conor McGregor has been focused on his upcoming UFC 257 bout against Dustin Poirier for a while now. However, that hasn’t stopped Jake Paul from doing his best to rope the former double champion into an exhibition boxing match.

Jake first called him out back in November 2020 after he knocked out Nate Robinson. Then, he taunted him to accept a $50 million fight offer several weeks later and has been flailing about ever since. 

He still hasn’t managed to get his attention. However, his antics did draw out comments from UFC President Dana White and Conor’s coach, John Kavanagh. Now, Conor has finally shared his thoughts on YouTube boxing as a whole, and here’s what he had to say.

Jake Paul has tried and failed to bait a response from Conor McGregor.

“A lot of people are criticizing [YouTube boxing] as maybe making a bit of a mockery of fighting,” asked an interviewer. It’s the predominant view among fans of combat sports. “I want you to weigh in on that for me.” 

“If they are fighting, well, then it can’t make a mockery of fighting, right?” said Conor. “They’re getting in, and they’re competing. I am not so much against it. The YouTube kid and the NBA star competing [was] good business.

“Am I into those competitions myself? It’s not the most high level if any level… [but] as they say if it makes dollars, it makes sense,” he added. “I know Dana and the UFC are not really into it, but… I’m not so against it. I think if people are willing to get in and take the risk of making that walk, I am certainly a viewer.”

Conor’s opinion might come as a surprise to fans who expected him to make scathing comments. However, as a businessman himself, it seems like he’s all for it. Plus, as he said, YouTube boxers are still fighting and giving it their all.

On another note, Conor didn’t seem too incensed about Jake. He barely mentioned him at all. 

Still, it’s only a matter of time before Jake responds, and there’s no doubt he won’t be too thrilled about being referred to as “the YouTube kid.”
