Twitch star Dr Disrespect has unveiled his brand-new Scuf Gaming controller design on stream, and it’s already available for purchase.

The Doc may do most of his gaming on PC, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have a use for a controller, and now he’ll never have to worry about that again thanks to his new Scuf Gaming design.

He has had ties to Scuf Gaming in the past thanks to his heavy involvement in the Call of Duty scene and has mentioned his collection of controllers more than once. It looks like that collection has just gotten bigger.

Dr Disrespect has three different designs to choose from, with the first being $159.95 for The Infinity4PS PRO model, second, being the Impact for $169.95, and the third being the $199.95 Vantage 2 model.

Xbox One owners are out of luck, though SCUF controllers do work with PC.

Scuf Controllers are very popular in the Call of Duty community and shooters in general as they offer an extra level of control not offered with traditional controllers thanks to the paddles on the back.

If you want to pick up Doc’s design, you are already able to do so.  However, you’ll want to act fast as he has a fanatic fanbase, and we could see his two designs quickly sell out.

To go along with the new design, Doc and Scuf teamed up for a trailer that helped unveil it to the public. He watched it with his Twitch chat but also posted it to Twitter if you weren’t able to tune in live.

As an added bonus, using code ‘DOC’ will provide a 10% discount on not only then new controller, but also everything else on the site entirely. This means if you’re looking to pick up more than just his controller, now would be the time to do so.

Many esports players swear by the Scuf controller, and the company says over 90% of players use them in competition. This includes the Call of Duty players, but will also crossover to other console esports titles like Gears of War and Halo.

With Doc now having an official design, we’ll have to keep an eye out for how many players decide to rock it in their matches.

We can expect Doc to be using it a lot on his streams going forward, especially if he continues his deep dive into Modern Warfare.

xQc unamused as hilarious Google search trolls him with Ninja’s picture

Twitch star Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel got an unpleasant surprise when he decided to do some research on who the most-subscribed streamer on Twitch is, only to be trolled by Google with Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins’ photo.

xQc is one of Twitch’s most popular streamers on Twitch and, by our measure, he’s easily one of the most successful on the platform this year, raking in close to $2 million overall.

Subscribers obviously make up a big part of that total amount, so you’re bound to find Felix on top of any ‘most-subscribed’ list for Twitch. Because it’s the end of the year and lists for the top streamers of 2020 are coming out, his chat urged him to search for exactly that.

“Most subbed streamer? Who cares, subs are temporary, sub count can go up and down, it can go away,” xQc said in response. “It doesn’t define what you do or who you are. People who attach their personality, and their ego, and their confidence to some random digit number that goes up and down — because they need some random pixels to feel better.”

 

Success doesn’t come without its struggles as they say, and the former Overwatch League pro found that out first hand when he finally gave in and did the search for his chat.

Sure enough, his name popped right up at the top of the Google search results, but instead of a picture of himself, it was accompanied by a photo of Ninja, which is very ironic since that’s who Felix has been compared to over the years by his merciless audience.

After initially looking proud when his name popped up, he quickly was at a loss for words for how badly he had been trolled by the search engine.

With his chat predictably cracking up, xQc simply closed the window and went back to his Minecraft run, continuing his original train of thought after a bit of awkward silence.

“In my opinion, if most of the basis of your self-confidence is from things that are outer, not from within, then you have no medium, you’ll never know what’s happening,” he reflected, trying to forget about the unfortunate search results. “You’ll always be guided by what others think, and then what?”

Not surprisingly, Ninja didn’t crack our list of the top-earning Twitch streamers for 2020, considering he only recently returned to the platform after Microsoft shut Mixer down in June.

Blevins still made out just fine though, reportedly making between $30-50 million from his streaming deal with the site, and the newfound freedom to broadcast wherever he pleases, which led him to re-sign with Twitch.

Despite the hilarious comparisons that many have made of the two, xQc still has a ways to go if he plans on making the kind of money Ninja rakes in from streaming. Still, he is undoubtedly one of the most subbed-to streamers on Twitch, so you’d think Google would at least get his picture right.

Maybe next year Felix!
