Twitch star Guy ‘Dr Disrespect’ Beahm has taken shots at game developers after the highly anticipated Fortnite x Star Wars event took place on December 14.

The popular battle royale game took things to the next level after debuting an exclusive scene from upcoming movie, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, in-game as part of the latest collaboration.

However, unlike many who tuned in to witness the in-game event, Twitch streamer Dr Disrespect was not impressed with what he saw, sending shots at the game’s developers.

Dr Disrespect was not happy with the Fortnite x Star Wars event.

Fortnite’s latest in-game event shared a short clip of the latest movie while also including an appearance from JJ Abrams before giving players the opportunity to even wield their choice of Lightsaber after the scene had finished.

Although the event had received overwhelming support and excitement from the fans, Dr Disrespect claimed that the event was lacking in creativity, taking shots at some of the game’s developers.

“I decided to watch this little Fortnite Star Wars collaboration that the entire industry had decided to hype up,” The Twitch star admitted, “from a creative standpoint, I thought it was seventh-grade bullsh*t, what a f**king joke!”

The popular streamer then took the time to address upcoming game developers, sending them a message of encouragement to out-do what Epic Games had pulled off with Fortnite’s latest collaboration,

“Young inspirational developers, whether you’re in high school, grade school, college, don’t you f**king dare look at Fortnite development and say that is the bar. That ain’t a creative bar it’s a technical bar.”

Dr Disrespect continued on, suggesting that game developers from other titles could put something together that could be even more creative than the Star Wars event, “They’ve got the technological advantage simply because they’re using some Unreal Engine but does that separate them creatively, talent-wise, from you? Not at all.”

One of the Doc’s fellow streamers, Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek, called out developers Battlestate Games in particular by tagging them in the post and replying with the “TARKOV,” hinting that they should take notes from Dr Disrespect’s video for the development of Escape from Tarkov.

With Epic Games continually looking to raise the bar when it comes to in-game events, it will be interesting to see over the next few months which game developers, if any, will look to take the Doc’s advice and try to best what Fortnite has put on so far.

Dr Disrespect will be hosting a new gaming award show next year that will have a range of unique categories. In his own words, he wants the show to focus on “things that really matter”.

Each year, certain game developers push the boundaries of the industry and create something brilliant. Therefore, it’s only right we have so many awards shows to shine a light on these projects and give them credit.

However, a lot of these ceremonies focus on handing out awards for entire games rather than focusing on the individual elements of a title. By the looks of it, Dr Disrespect is looking to fill this gap with his own reward show that focuses on handing out rewards for specific features gamers like him really care about.

Dr Disrespect plans to host his own award show in 2021

The most important aspect of an award show is the different categories for each of the accolades.

This is where the Doc is looking to make his ceremony unique and interesting: “I think the game industry needs an award show that focuses on things that really matter.” Rather than focusing on the broader project, the two-time wants to reward the individuals who put these amazing titles together.

A tweet made by the Doc gives some examples of the different categories we could expect from his show.

There’s no doubt it would exciting to see a popular award show herald some of the individual developers that put these projects together. A lot of the time they do not get the recognition they deserve as most awards are given out for the entire project.

Doc finishes off the tweet by confirming we can expect to see the show at some point next year. It’ll be interesting to see if he hosts the ceremony independently or with an established award show brand.

Either way, it’s great news and to be honest it’s hard to think of a better host for a gaming award ceremony than the Two-Time. Let’s hope the Doc provides us with a specific date in the near future.
