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.

Jake Paul reveals how much money he made from Nate Robinson fight

Despite holding a professional record of just two wins and no losses, YouTube sensation Jake Paul is already making more than most professional boxers will ever see in their careers off the back of his Nate Robinson fight.

Jake Paul is still relatively fresh to the sport of boxing. Following a lone amateur win, his first professional bout came at the start of 2020. He’s just closed out the year with another victory. Both pro matchups went his way thanks to two early knockouts against fellow YouTube AnEsonGib and former NBA player Nate Robinson.

He’s barely spent a few minutes inside the ring across both fights, however he’s already taking home a good chunk of change for his efforts. The internet celebrity brings legions of fans with him, contributing to huge Pay Per View sales and even viral trends after the fact.

Rather than a guaranteed figure for his latest scrap, his earnings were dependent on the performance of the PPV as a whole.

As one of the biggest PPV events of the year – reaching over a million buys in the United States alone, according to analyst Dan Rafael – Paul cashed in big-time thanks to his unique contract for the fight.

The disclosed purses for both Paul and Robinson were a little off-base, as ESPN’s Mark Raimondi exposed in a December 3 interview with Paul. Initial figures were slim, but Paul assured he was paid “a lot,” even laughing when the topic was brought up.

No exact figure was revealed, though he did provide some staggering insight. “Eight figures” is what Paul walked away at an absolute minimum just for the performance alone. “My deal was built into the backend structure of how well the event performed,” he explained. “The event performed incredibly well.”

Walking away with $10,000,000 at a minimum sure sounds like a lot. This number doesn’t factor in potential sponsorship deals or additional PPV buys that come in after the initial batch. There are also international sales to consider as well.

It’s clear he has no signs of slowing down anytime soon either. “I truly believe I will be the biggest prize fighter in the world,” he added.

Segment begins at 9:57.

“Mike Tyson is co-signing me, he wants to take me under his wing. Why can’t I become the champion of the world?”

Paul has some lofty goals and even “realistic” aspirations of fighting Conor McGregor sometime in the near future. It’s entirely possible these eight-figure paychecks are just the beginning for Paul in his boxing career.
