PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds maps being created by a “7th grader,” after being left frustrated by its design. 

Despite past concerns about Bluehole’s first-person shooter game, the popular Twitch streamer seems to have been enjoying his time playing it of late – once again attempting his PUBG challenge, to pick up victories in Erangel, Sanhok, Miramar, and Vikendi. 

However, after jumping into the latter, he took a few moments to explain why he doesn’t really decide to drop at any specific locations on the snowy map. 

PUBGThe Vikendi map was officially launched in PUBG across all platforms in January 2019.

“I just jump. Just jump. It’s the same thing everywhere you go,” Dr Disrespect said during his May 17 stream. “The landscape is the exact same, like I think the level of design for this map, I feel like some 7th-grade kid designed this map.”

It didn’t take long for the Two-Time to jump right into one of his classic impersonations, though, as he began to mock its design with a funny voice. “Little buildings here, buildings there, put some trees in between,” he said, flicking his view from side to side as he looked around. 

“Put a couple of hills and rocks in between, couple trees,” he continued. “This little group of buildings here. Put a lake right there, put a couple of buildings next to the lake. Let’s put some buildings over there. How about some buildings right there? Oh, that’s cool man, I could stack a couple of rocks up and make it a little bit bigger so it looks like a mountain.”

The point he was trying to make, if the clip isn’t enough to see, is that the Vikendi map feels very repetitive in terms of its layout. There are areas in the map, he feels, that are pretty much the same as other locations. 

Most players tend to have their favorite drop spots in battle royale games, whether that’s because of the loot that’s found there or just something they appreciate about the design, but clearly, the Doc can’t say the same about PUBG’s take on the snow biome. 


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.

Hamlinz is back and feeling like his old self again

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.
