Dr Disrespect explains why he’s loving Escape from Tarkov

Dr Disrespect has explained why he is loving Escape from Tarkov, in a surprisingly positive Twitch clip taken from December 31. 

Battlestate Games’ Escape from Tarkov originally released in the summer of 2016, as a realistic tactical first-person shooter, in the vein of Ubisoft’s Rainbow Six Siege. While the latter has experienced mainstream acclaim, the former has found a new lease of life on streaming platforms. 

A number of popular streamers, including Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek, have praised the game and shared it to their audiences. On December 31, the Doc became the latest to heap praise on Escape from Tarkov. 

Battlestate Games.Escape From Tarkov is a tactical first-person shooter.

The Doc is known for playing a variety of games, regularly losing his cool and engaging in passionate rants about how games can improve. However, fans were surprised when, on New Year’s Eve, he fired nothing but compliments the way of Battlestate Games. 

“This game’s kinda sick,” he said. “I’m not gonna lie – this game’s kinda sick. This game is pretty sweet – I get it. It’s not the fastest game, we’re not jumping out of vehicles, ponytail flapping in the wind.”

“[We’re not] getting struck by lightning,” he continued. “While we’re AKing somebody – two tapping them – using proximity chat. I know it’s not that type of violence, speed and momentum, but there is a certain level of intensity and build up.” 

The Doc suggests he’s enjoying the game as a result of its change of pace – a much slower game than those he is accustomed too. This is a typical feature of tactical FPS games – where players may spend minutes holding one angle just to achieve one kill. 

“I still have a lot to learn, obviously,” the Doc finished. While he’s fairly new to Tarkov, it seems the game is striking all the right chords with Twitch’s most passionate gamer. 

The two-time’s audience found the Doc’s praise a nice change of pace – as the Doc is finding Escape from Tarkov in his first few days with the game.

xQc has hilarious response after Logic roasts him on stream

Twitch streamer xQc had the best response after rapper Logic declined his invitation to a chess match live on stream, having mistakenly thought him to be the winner of the PogsChamps chess tournament.

Felix Lengyel a.k.a. xQc has been absolutely crushing Twitch stats this year, proving to be the most popular, and the highest-earning, streamer of 2020.

Despite his success, one area where he is most certainly lacking is chess skills – look no further than his 6-move loss to critikalMoist during the first PogChamps tournament as evidence of that.

In bizarre circumstances though, xQc’s chess skills earned him an unexpected roast from rapper Logic, live on stream, sparking a hilarious interaction between the streamers.

xQc has become arguably the biggest name on Twitch in 2020.

xQc has been trying his hand at online chess recently, and has played with multiple different people online. Keen to see if Logic was willing to participate in a game, Lengyel sent him an invite, and hopped over to his stream to watch the reaction.

But, the reaction wasn’t quite what he expected. “F**k that dude, man. xQc wants to play with me, but he was Pog champion wasn’t he? F**k that dude, man. F**k xQc,” Logic joked.

Logic had got his wires a little crossed, as Felix actually placed last in Chess.com’s PogsChamps tournament back in June, and again in August. It’s safe to say xQc was bewildered, unsure of what caused the seemingly unprompted roast.

Though xQc had a hilarious comeback of his own, calling him a “strawberry looking a** man,” going on to say “what does he mean? What did I do?”

In the background, Logic continues with “he’s about to smack me up man,” as Felix looks on completely baffled as to how he’d been confused for an unrivaled chess player.

It’s clear the jokes were all in good fun, as Logic quickly asked his team to follow xQc on Twitter so the pair could DM.

Fans were loving the hilarious exchange between Felix and Logic, with one of the clips uploaded to YouTube gaining over 400,000 views in only a couple of days.
