Although popular Twitch streamer Dr Disrespect is the two-time Blockbuster video game champion, his therapy skills might need some work, as evidenced by his hilarious interaction with a distressed fan.

The Doc went live with an Apex Legends stream on April 3 when he received a distressing donation message from a fan named ‘Missy,’ who claimed that her boyfriend of 3 years had just broken up with her.

“Doc, my boyfriend of 3 years just broke up with me,” the message read. “I feel like I can barely make it through the day. What can I do to feel better and not feel like I’m dying all the time?”

GFUEL, TwitterDr Disrespect is one of the most popular streamers on Twitch, sitting at over 3 million followers as of April 4.

Dr Disrespect’s loveline

Dr Disrespect advised the fan to take a dive into large bodies of water – although he fumbled the execution in a hilarious way.

“I would go jump into a swimming pool,” he began. “Or, if you’re near the ocean, go catch some waves. Just let the waves pound you to death.”

The Doc quickly realized his mistake and backtracked, admitting that he should have phrased his advice in another manner.

“Actually, I probably should have rephrased that,” he continued. “Let the waves crash into you, and then feel the wave. What I’m saying is, it’s like throwing a cold bucket of water over your body to wake you up. That’s all I want you to do.”

The Doc gets roasted

The Doc’s relationship advice fail follows yet another hilarious debacle that took place during TimTheTatMan’s stream, where a young Fortnite player had a scathing take on the two-time Blockbuster champ.

“I’ve seen like the [Most Twitch Viewed Clips] like ‘Doctor cheats on wife,’” the youngster said after being questioned about Dr Disrespect. “That was hilarious. That was funny.”

While TimTheTatMan tried put a halt on the conversation, the Doc took the situation in good spirits, writing, “Jesus christ!!!!” in Tim’s chat.

The child’s comments were in reference to the Doc’s own relationship troubles, which were made known during a December 2017 stream when he admitted to infidelity against his wife.

While his surprising admission of guilt shocked fans across the space, he has since returned to Twitch in a major way, even featuring his four-year-old daughter, ‘Baby Disrespect’ in occasional, heartwarming broadcasts from time to time.

Like most popular streamers, Shroud has been getting stuck into the World of Warcraft: Shadowlands grind, but although he’s enjoyed it so far, he said he feels like the game is “less immersive” than it used to be.

World of Warcraft: Shadowlands has taken the world by storm ever since it launched on November 23. Players have been hopping back into Azeroth to take the reigns of their characters once again.

Popular streamers like Mike ‘Shroud’ Grzesiek have been getting stuck into the grind too. He’s been very open about how much he loves the game and has streamed hours upon hours of World of Warcraft Classic. He even said he was willing to lose viewers to stream it.

Shroud has thoroughly enjoyed playing World of Warcraft for many years now.

However, Shroud isn’t blinded by his love and adoration for the game. He still has some criticism for World of Warcraft: Shadowlands and MMORPGs in general, and he mentioned them in his latest stream.

“I feel like [MMORPG’s] and WoW, in general, have transcended into something completely different,” he said. “In the past, you [played] because you were immersed. You were leveling up your character. You were getting new items. It felt good to be more powerful and do better things.”

“Now I feel like WoW is like play with friends and kill some shit,” he said. “That feeling of immersion and truly having an impact on the world and your character feeling there has kind of nullified.”

“When I played vanilla WoW in 2005, I was 11 years old, and it felt amazing,” he said. “It felt incredible. It felt like I was in my own realm. I was in my own world. Now it doesn’t feel like that. That feeling is gone.

The relevant part of the video starts at 2:00.

It’s a sentiment that others have echoed time and time again. The consensus is that MMORPGs have been streamlined throughout the years.

However, it hasn’t stopped millions of players, including Shroud, from enjoying World of Warcraft: Shadowlands. 

Plus, despite his criticism, he thinks now is the “best time” for new players to start playing the game because the new leveling process is “really cool.”
