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.

Starting with Chapter 2 Season 5, Fortnite will have a brand new subscription service titled Fortnite Crew, which aims to bring a slew of different features that players love, wrapped up into one nice little package. Here’s everything you need to know. 

Season 4 of Fortnite is rapidly coming to an end. The Marvel-themed season has been around for a few months now and in December it will be replaced by Season 5. While we don’t know the full extent of the new season, we do know that it’s set to introduce a brand new service called Fortnite Crew.

This subscription-based model, which is a first for Fortnite, is set to introduce a brand new way to get the battle pass each season, while at the same time earning some free goodies to sink your teeth into. But how does it work, how much does it cost, and what does it include? Here’s the breakdown.

Fortnite Crew contents

The most attractive inclusion in this new subscription service is that of the battle pass. Each month, you’ll get the premium version of the battle pass at no extra cost to you, so long as you’re subscribed to Fortnite Crew.

Beyond that, however, you’ll also receive a number of different items beyond the premium battle pass. You’ll also receive 1000 v-bucks and an exclusive Fortnite Crew Pack, which in-and-of-itself includes a skin and a “matching accessory”.

Fortnite Crew cost

According to Epic, the Fortnite Crew subscription service will cost players $11.99 a month. This price makes the service an objectively good deal, as a normal battle pass costs 950 V-bucks, which costs around $8.

So for a few extra bucks from the standard price of a battle pass, you’re getting 1000 extra V-bucks, an exclusive skin pack, and the battle pass itself.

How to subscribe to Fortnite Crew

Epic Games
Players will be able to purchase the Fortnite Crew subscription from the Item Shop when it launches in December.

Subscribing to Fortnite Crew is, apparently, quick and easy. All you have to do is click the icons found in the Fortnite Item Shop or on the battle pass screen, meaning it doesn’t seem like players will have to jump through a bunch of hoops in order to get access to the service.

In addition, Epic Games also confirmed that fans will be able to cancel their subscription at any time. Presumably, fans will be able to keep all of the items they unlocked through the service up until that point, considering they would have already paid for that month.
