Dr Disrespect blasts Epic Games over his biggest Fortnite complaint

Mega-popular Twitch streamer Dr Disrespect has had his fair share of run ins with game developers, and the latest to face his fury is Fortnite creator Epic Games.

After becoming disinterested in both PUBG and Blackout, the Doc has switched focus to another battle royale title, and the number one game in the world, Fortnite.

Since the start of 2019, the former level designer at Sledgehammer Games has almost exclusively played Fortnite, preferring it over its competition, but that doesn’t mean he has no issues with it at all.

In typical Dr Disrespect fashion, he wasn’t exactly respectful in communicating his biggest ‘concern’ with the game.

Calling the Epic Games team the “Epic Fortnite nerds from North Carolina”, the Doc was enraged at audio problems, which had ultimately caused him to be eliminated after he couldn’t hear an enemy, that he claims was only five feet away.

“Hey, Epic Fortnite nerdy developers from North Carolina, we have no audio! Sometimes there’s just no audio! That’s a concern”, Dr Disrespect exclaimed, “That’s a big, big concern. […] Hey, nerdy Epic, North Carolina, Fortnite, skinny, ugly looking nerds, developer group – you got some issues with your audio team.”

Dr Disrespect has had some humorous names for developers in the past, namely PUBG devs ‘Bluehole Entertainment’, which he affectionately named ‘Blue Balls Entertainment, but “Epic Fortnite nerds from North Carolina” might be the best yet.

While game developers will be happy to have one of the biggest names in streaming bringing more attention to the game, when it comes to Dr Disrespect, you can never be sure that it will be the right kind of attention.


Ali-A reveals unreleased Fortnite skin haunting Weeping Woods

Popular Fortnite YouTuber Ali-A has shown that the previously leaked Madcap skin looks to be coming soon as a mobile glitch has revealed a strange character ‘haunting’ Weeping Woods. 

Across the different Fortnite seasons and updates, Epic Games have released a vast amount of cosmetics – with fans picking out their favorites and donning them in-game. 

Typically, these skins are leaked ahead of time as leakers are able to decrypt games files that are added to the mix with each new update and patch. Some of these skins never see the light of day, or are held back for quite a while, despite being leaked following a patch. 

One of the skins that falls into this category is the Madcap – a glowing, purple, Mushroom-themed skin. It was leaked quite a while back, and while it hasn’t been available just yet, it looks like it will be pretty soon.

Each new Fortnite update leaks a whole host of skins.

Popular YouTuber Ali-A pointed out that some Fortnite mobile players on Android had spotted the outline of a skin sitting around in Weeping Woods. 

The character that seems to be ‘haunting’ the POI, is stood under a tree with their arms crossed. However, it’s not colorful. Instead, it’s a blacked-out silhouette – almost as if it’s going to be added soon, but is showing up as a visual glitch in-game. 

Ali-A noted that the character is most definitely Madcap because of the shape of the head, and given that he’s hanging around Weeping Woods, there might be a challenge or quest line involved with unlocking the skin.

Even though the YouTuber’s speculation seems pretty spot on, there’s no telling if he’s right just yet because Epic Games hasn’t announced anything. 

It could very well be that, as Fortnitemares unfolds, the skin will finally be available through the item shop and there are also challenges in Weeping Woods to unlock skin styles. Though, we’ll just have to wait and see.
