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.
