PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds after another unfortunate death fired him up to no end.

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds was a smash hit when it first released in 2017, but scores of hackers and bugs quickly made it less alluring especially with more battle royale games filling up the genre.

At the height of the game’s popularity streamers like the Doc, shroud and more worked with the Bluehole developers to get custom in-game skins to immortalize the personalities’ place in PUBG history.

Dr Disrespect TwitchThe streamer received a “call” from the developers and humorously reaffirmed the he wants his skins “out of the game.”

The collaboration produced some of the game’s best skins to date for popular weapons that players’ tend to use when owning on the battlefields.

But after another PUBG-fueled tirade, the Doc said he doesn’t want his skins in the game anymore after noting that Bluehole does not “have a product that is thriving right now.”

“You know what, I take it back,” the Doc ramped up. “I don’t want skins in this game anymore. Take my skins out. Pull my skins out of the game. I don’t want them in the game. I don’t. Pull them out.”

The streamer is known for his lengthy skits, and it was in full display after he got a “call” on his flip phone from the devs where the Doc continued to hammer the point to the Bluehole developers.

“Yeah. Yeah!” Dr Disrespect said on the phone before erupting. “Yeah, PULL THEM OUT OF THE GAME!”

For those unfamiliar with the Doc’s antics, while he does have major gripes with PUBG’s developments he jokingly demanded that the developers take his skins out of the game after the ping in a “warmup game” made a close-range firefight go wrong.

“The ping is so bad in this game, it’s unplayable,” the Doc said. “That’s not what I saw on my screen… It’s just so disgusting, this fucking game. This FUCKING GAME MAKES ME SICK! That’s why no ones fucking playing your game. You guys are making me sick! You’re not doing anything for this game.”

The Doc is nothing if not persistent, so it’s definitely not the last time we see him drop into a PUBG match in hopes of getting a solid win.

TSM Hamlinz finally breaks Twitter silence after four-months away

Hamlinz has been missing in action for quite some time, but the beloved Fortnite streamer has finally broken his silence on Twitter on Oct. 25, and let the world know he is back and feeling good.

Darryle ‘Hamlinz’ Hamlin was once a pillar in the streaming world. He shot to fame while streaming Fortnite during its peak, and his popularity rose even more after he joined Team Solo Mid.

However, the beloved streamer has been on the down-low for several months now; in fact, he has been silent on social media for most of the year. 

Hamlinz tweeted every now and then between January and March, and even streamed a couple of times. But he was far less active than he used to be, and hadn’t posted at all since July.

Many speculated he might have been on another hiatus. The first one happened when he needed some time off to deal with a nasty cyst. The second one happened not long after when he needed some time to deal with personal issues.

Hamlinz was once one of the most popular streamers alongside Shroud and Ninja.

Thankfully, he bounced back on both those occasions, and it seems like he’s bounced back once again. The full extent of what happened this time around remains unclear. However, the most important thing is that Hamlinz has finally broken his silence on social media.

“Feeling like my old self again,” he wrote. It’s a little more than one hour old, but the tweet has already amassed 50,000 likes, 6,5000 retweets, and 6,000 comments.

The hype is real, and for a good reason. Hamlinz is one of the most entertaining, likable, and talented streamers in the world. Plus, it’s always nice to see people recover from whatever issues they’re facing and get back on their own two feet.

The comments are filled with people happy to see him back. “Finally something good in 2020,” wrote one fan. “Hamlinz is BACK BABY,” wrote another.

Sadly, Hamlinz has remained tight-lipped on whether he will stream again anytime soon. However, considering he is feeling like his old self again, it could mean that a stream might not be too far away.

Either way, there’s no doubt that it will be a momentous occasion. If the excitement in the comments is anything to go by, the floodgates will open and his fans, followers, and viewers will come pouring in.

Hamlinz has more than five million followers across Twitch, Twitter, and Youtube. It seems all the time off hasn’t dampened his popularity in the slightest.
