Dr DisRespect Explains Why He Still Plays PUBG Over Fortnite

As the rivalry between battle royale games PUBG and Fortnite rages on, Dr DisRespect explains why still chooses to play the former, in spite of Fortnite’s popularity.

PUBG is seen by many as the direct predecessor to Fortnite Battle Royale, at one time by far the most popular and recognized game in the genre, it was later usurped by its cartoonish counterpart in late 2017.

But Dr DisRespect, who is best known as a PUBG player and streamer, is one of the few top streamers who more often than not still choose the militaristic style of the game over Fortnite.

Some have suggested that this has held back the Doc’s growth, as while other streamers like Ninja and NICKMERCS have massively increased their following with Fortnite, the Doc remains somewhat faithful to PUBG.

While he does play the game and competes in the weekly ‘Friday Fortnite’ tournaments, he definitely favors PUBG and has now explained his main issue with its rival.

“I just don’t get the feeling with Fortnite” he says, before mimicking the constant building of towers and shelters required to win most engagements, highlighting that the game is more focused on building than shooting.

“I feel like if I had some kind of digital form of a Fortnite character, I could mimic exactly how to build with just my hands. Right – put up four walls, ramp up, four walls, ramp, floor.”

The Doc is highlighting the repetiveness of the building mechanics, as well as the reliance and emphasis the game places on building in order to win engagements.

This is an issue that Fortnite developer, Epic Games, recently addressed, signalling their interest in making so that “not every fight has to result in a build-off”.

Epic Games is yet to introduce measures to influence this, but has strongly hinted at reducing the maximum materials cap, so that players cannot carry around 999 wood, for example.

Perhaps these changes would help convert the Doc and others who dislike the building reliance to the more popular of the two Battle Royale games. But conversely, many argue that building is what makes Fortnite unique, and therefore popular.

Mike Majlak reveals why he’s broken up with Lana Rhoades

Mike Majlak and Lana Rhoades have been the sweethearts of the internet world for quite some time, but their relationship is officially over, with Mike Majlak breaking the news on YouTube.

Mike Majlak and Lana Rhoades have been in a relationship together for ten months. It’s been a widely publicized roller coaster ride filled with ups and downs. However, it was one that many mutual fans loved to see.

It was also the only relationship Mike Majlak has been involved in throughout the past decade. But sadly, not all relationships can stand the test of time, and the two of them have officially parted ways.

Mike Majlak broke the news in a YouTube video. “Never thought id ever put out a breakup video but this one was necessary,” he said. “I wanted the story told my way before others could tarnish what was an incredible relationship and part of my journey.”

In the video, Mike Majlak explains that he felt like the fans deserved an explanation since the breakup happened out of the blue. “There’s no one specific reason [for the breakup],” he said. “It wasn’t a loyalty thing.”

“The best thing about Amara [which is her real name] is that she’s so fiercely loyal,” he added. “I never once had to worry about her cheating [or] talking to any other guys. It was never about other guys.”

His comment immediately shuts down rumors and accusations that she cheated on him. It’s often the first thing people suspect when there’s a sudden breakup.

Instead, he claimed they were simply “two people who wanted vastly different things.”

Mike Majlak and Lana Rhoades always looked madly in love.

“Amara was… obsessed with the idea of linear and traditional life and love,” he said. “She wanted to meet a guy, she wanted to settle down, she wanted to have a family and just live this kind of linear life.”

“That’s just not who I am,” he said. He also claimed she was “trying to facilitate the vision that she saw for the relationship, which was getting a house and moving in with her.”

However, while it made “made complete sense to her,” it didn’t to him, and it didn’t feel right to go ahead with it. 

In the end, there were too many signs that they wanted “two vastly different things in life” and “weren’t cut out to be together” and “go the distance.”

The breakup has been hard on them both, so to make things easier, they’ve been trying not to talk and keeping their distance.

It’s a sad end for one of the more beloved internet couples in recent times, but it’s certainly not a bitter one. The two of them have clearly thought long and hard about the decision.

In the end, it seems like calling it quits made the most sense in the long run, but they’ve parted ways on good terms.
