Dr Disrespect explains why nobody is playing ‘terrible’ PUBG anymore

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds went down a lot worse than he might have imagined, sparking an angered rant where he suggested the only people playing the pioneering battle royale game right now are from South Korea.

The streamer, who has voiced his concerns about a lack of content on rival battle royale game Apex Legends of late, decided to give PUBG another try on March 20 as part of his regular ‘Triple Threat Challenge’. 

Looking for solo wins in PUBG, Fortnite and Apex Legends to complete the task, it soon became clear that the first stumbling block proved too much for the streamer to handle. 

After Dr Disrespect had fought his way back into the zone on Sanhok, as seen in the clip above, he was shot at by a hidden foe. He glanced around and eventually found the enemy camping, crouched behind a nearby tree, before taking them out – only to be sniped from afar moments later.

It’s fair to say that all of these hiding tactics didn’t go down too well with the Two-Time, sparking an anger fuelled rant at the game. 

“This game is designed for a bunch of pussies. It is! It’s terrible,” he said. “It’s a bunch of ‘crouching, hiding in the bushes, looking out at long range waiting for your one shot’ pussies. That’s why nobody is playing it – except people that are in South Korea.” 

The Doc took a major issue with how players are rewarded for sitting and waiting in PUBG, instead of taking the initiative by engaging in ‘legitimate’ gunfights – he says. 

“Not once have I died in a 1-on-1 fight. I haven’t,” he explained. “It’s been from behind, from the left, from desperation, from chubby cheeks. It’s fucking terrible, this game is fucking terrible.”

His search for the next solo win in PUBG continues, but it’s uncertain if he’ll go against his better judgement and continue playing the game in the future. Clearly, he doesn’t like how people are playing it.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
