Dr Disrespect bashes Fortnite as “most soulless” game in history

Star Twitch streamer Dr Disrespect is at odds with Fortnite Battle Royale again, once more expressing his displeasure with it to his fans.

When it comes to top streamers and content creators who play Fortnite, even if from time to time, you would be hard-pressed to find one who dislikes the game more than Dr Disrespect. 

Since the battle royale title’s rise to prominence, the Doc has regularly taken shots at it and developers Epic Games, often dismissing the game as “pathetic” and too childish.

The latest chapter of his crusade against Fortnite came on August 28, when he blasted the game both on his Twitter page and Twitch channel.

“Fortnite is the most overrated soulless game in the history of game development. Period,” he tweeted. “Gaming industry, let’s move on.”

Following that tweet, things got even spicier on his livestream, when he was playing one of his iconic ‘Triple Threat’ challenges, which require him to win a solos match on Fortnite, PUBG, and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s Blackout battle royale.

During the Fortnite phase of the challenge, he pretty much maintained an attitude of discontent and loathing, slamming the game as he was playing it.

“This game is a mash of just ideas and designs because they have the engine to do it,” he said. “There’s nothing soulful about this game. This game has no soul. It’s the most soulless game in existence of video games.”

The Two-Time’s comments come at what has been a very tumultuous time for Fortnite and Epic Games, whose contentious relationship with the player-base has reached a boiling point.

Following the messy BRUTE Mech suit controversy, which was ultimately quelled after several major nerfs were implemented, the community was unleashed into uproar after the developers made a big change to Turbo Building that severely altered fast building techniques.

After trying to reason with the players by offering an explanation, Epic ended up reverting some of those changes on August 28, which has thus far put them in a much better position in regards to community opinion.

However, it seems that not matter what they do or don’t do, the Doc is one player who they’ll probably never get on their side. 


Epic Games tease more “exclusive” content coming for Fortnite Crew members

According to a brand-new leaked survey, Epic Games have been asking players what they might want to see added as a feature to the Fortnite Crew subscription service, hinting that they’re open to changing up what’s included in the future.

If you took a look at the Fortnite Crew subscription service and thought that it didn’t include enough or didn’t include much that you’d be interested in, Epic Games may be heeding those concerns.

According to Fortnite leaker ‘iFireMonkey,’ a brand-new survey sent out to Fortnite players might indicate that the developer might be open to changing up what a Fortnite Crew subscription comes with. Specifically, the survey asks players to rank what benefits would be most or least important to be added to the service.

Currently, the Fortnite Crew service includes an exclusive skin, some V-Bucks and a free battle pass.

The question itself features a wide range of choices. Some are simply new ways to purchase Fortnite Crew subscriptions, like the ability to buy the service in retail stores and multi-month options.

There are also more gameplay-centric choices, including everything from custom matchmaking options to cosmetics that show off how long you’ve had a subscription. Beyond that, there’s even a choice for a monthly physical mailer with additional rewards outside of what’s given digitally.

Despite this development, it remains to be seen if the company will actually implement any changes. While this survey might indicate that the company is, at the very least, open to adding features to the service, it’s important to remember that it’s not a guarantee that they will.

Currently, the service includes a free battle pass, an exclusive Crew pack, 1000 V-Bucks and an exclusive Member’s Only emote (at least for a limited time), so the implementation of any one of the features listed in the leaked survey would be a welcome addition, especially after its rocky start.

For any updates regarding new features in the Fortnite Crew service and Fortnite in general, keep it locked to Dexerto.
