Twitch streaming star Dr Disrespect has revealed his three favorite battle royales – and you might just be surprised by a few of his selections. 

As one of Twitch’s most popular variety streamers, Dr Disrespect can usually be found showing off his trademark violence, speed, and momentum in a number of titles – but it is pretty much the first-person shooter genre only. 

Over the last few years, as the battle royale genre has exploded in popularity, The Doc has dipped his toes in a number of different games – usually coming out on top but finding something to get annoyed by as well. He’s sworn titles like Fortnite and had issues with PUBG, but now he’s revealed his top three all-time favorites.

The Doc is never one to shy away from having his opinion on things.

During his April 9 stream, The Two-Time was quizzed by a viewer about his favorite battle royales while he was waiting to get into another match of Call of Duty: Warzone. 

The Doc didn’t waste any time with his response though, saying: “I’m going to have to go H1Z1, PUBG, and Blackout was… really good.” While he may have shocked some viewers by claiming Blackout made the cut, Dr Disrespect did say that Warzone could have learned from its predecessor.

“I like the gunplay of Blackout. If Warzone had Blackout’s gunplay, oh, it would be the most perfect battle royale,” The Doc added.

Some fans were clearly surprised by the inclusion of Blackout, reminding the streamer of the infamous armor noises that would ring out when you hit an enemy. Though, he didn’t hold it against the game.

“Yeah, but it felt like the fights were at least honest to me like, this game, it’s weird sometimes man,” the Doc added. “I’m blatantly staring at the guy, I’m firing my bullets first, I’m ahead in the fight and somehow, someway I still lose the fight.”

As more and more battle royales are released, the Doc’s list could very change be in for a shake-up, but we won’t see things like Battlefield’s Firestorm or the short-lived Radical Heights. 

Though it might take something special to knock H1Z1 and PUBG out of the top three, they did provide for some magical moments after all.

OfflineTV Rust server creator explains why big streamers have stopped playing

Twitch streamer and creator of the OfflineTV Rust server baboabe has explained why many big streamers have gone away from playing on the RP and PVP servers.

Even though its been around since 2013, Rust has seen unprecedented levels of popularity in recent weeks thanks to Twitch streamers flocking to the game. 

For the most part, the biggest creators had been spending their time on OfflineTV’s different servers. However, in recent days, a few streamers have decided to quit – stating that they need a break and have gone on to play other games.

With a few quitting, it’s prompted a bit of an exodus, and many of the biggest streamers have gone back to their usual games or sought out a bit of a variety. As for why that’s the case, Abe, the creator of the server, has an answer.

Creator’s have flocked to OfflineT’sV RP server ‘The Divide’.

During a brief stream on January 21, the server creator was going over plans for what could be changed moving forward, when questions came in about whether or not players have quit for good. One question, in particular, asked if the server ever had enough longevity for the streamers who played. 

“Longevity was fine. The biggest issue was that everyone streamed and played on the server for literally 300 plus hours,” Abe said, answering questions from viewers. 

“Like, so many people streamed and played Rust for 300 plus hours literally within two weeks, so they were just burnt out, they had nothing else left to do.”

At the crux of it, Rust is all about getting ahead of your opponents by building bases and gathering more resources than everyone else. It can become quite addicting once you’ve got a few dedicated teammates, but you can, as Abe says, burn out quickly.

As for what might happen next, and potentially getting streamers back playing, the map might have to be shaken up with tweaks being made to how fast players can get resources – say, prohibiting gambling. However it’s a fine line, so we’ll just have to wait and see.
