Dr Disrespect reveals how Escape From Tarkov could be improved

Twitch star Dr Disrespect is just the latest streamer to jump into Escape from Tarkov and he’s been loving it, but there’s one thing he thinks could change that would greatly improve the game.

Beginning on December 30 and running until January 5 Twitch drops have been enabled in the game so viewers have been able to pick up some free gear just by watching streamers play.

This had led to more streamers picking up the FPS and trying it out since viewer interest was way up. Dr Disrespect decided to give the game a try, and he’s already said he’s been loving the game so far.

Battlestate GamesEscape from Tarkov has a high learning curve that streamers have been enjoying.

However, just because you love a game, it doesn’t mean that it is free from criticisms. Doc offered up a suggestion that would greatly improve Tarkov, and it comes back to one thing he talks about a lot for other titles – audio.

He compared it to real-life if he were talking or screaming, basically making a loud noise.

“You would probably be able to hear me at the silos all the way over there,” he started. “That’s about 350 yards away. They definitely would hear me and that would be sick. Think about that level of proximity chat in the game. If they absolutely nailed the audio design… the potential.”

Doc has always been a big proponent of getting high-quality audio in games. We can’t blame him too much for that since he has to listen to something with his Turtle Beach headset.

It’s worth mentioning that Escape from Tarkov is still in its beta period, so plenty of changes could still be on the way before it officially launches.

Right now, EFT is in a pretty good state, and is only gaining in popularity thanks to all of the streamers that have been picking the game up.

Of course, Doc is very hot and cold when it comes to pretty much any game, so we’re sure once the honeymoon period fades, the Two-Time will have some more scathing comments regarding the title.

For the time being, the streamer has been loving his time, and viewers have shared the same sentiment.

Battlestate Games have always been about building a fun community, but now they’re letting players influence the game design itself by launching the Escape from Tarkov Early Test Server. 

Escape from Tarkov’s developers, Battlestate Games, has always had a reputation for communicating with the game’s fanbase. By doing this, they’ve formed a dedicated community of players and fans who truly live and breathe the game.

These fans know that the updates for Tarkov are few and far between, normally coming in big chunks instead of occasional drip-fed updates. The announcement of new guns in early November certainly caused a stir, especially with Streets of Tarkov still looming somewhere on the horizon.

To add to the excitement, Tarkov’s devs have come up with an interesting way of including their fans in the development process: the Early Test Server.

What is the Early Test Server?

The Tarkov early test program works similarly to the PBE in LoL or Experimental Mode in Overwatch. As Battlestate’s tweet says, the ETS allows players to “test and run new features, content, and updates before they appear in the game, and allow players to contribute to the world of Escape from Tarkov.”

Additionally, it will help the devs identify any bugs or fixes in a tighter timeframe. Therefore, it will help ensure that any new updates are as polished as possible.

How to access the Early Test Server

In order to participate in the Early Test Server, you must have an active copy of Escape from Tarkov.

To become a part of the Early Test server, simply follow these steps:

  • Activate the launcher.
  • Fill in the ETS form.
  • Await notification that you’ve been selected.

It’s great to see the game’s devs reaching out to their fans to ensure that the Tarkov experience is the best it can be. So, if you fancy shaping the face of Tarkov, apply for the ETS: The possibilities are limitless!
