Dr Disrespect wipes Fortnite from his Twitter after Season 2 update

The latest Fortnite Chapter 2 update has failed to wow one of the game’s biggest critics, Dr Disrespect, with the Two-Time choosing to delete all reference of the game from his Twitter after ranting about the game’s “false perception” of excellence.

Fortnite’s mega Chapter 2: Season 2 update brought a host of long-awaited changes to Epic’s popular battle royale, including a new Battle Pass, map changes, and the opening of the vault to some of Chapter 1’s more exciting weapons.

While Dr Disrespect has been giving Fortnite more of a crack on stream recently, all of his enthusiasm was curbed by the new update.

Fortnite’s Chapter 2: Season 2 update has failed to strike a chord with critic Dr Disrespect.

Losing game-after-game, the Doc was fed up. One particular gunfight drew the ire of the streamer, after he was one shot with an assault rifle in close range, even though he landed an almost-perfect shotgun blast first.

It was enough to send him over the edge, divulging on a huge rant about how “garbage and overhyped” the latest update for Fortnite seems to be.

“Enough of this f**king one-ramp, two-ramp, wall, ceiling, floor, and then shotgun blast that does f**king nothing because we’re doing a coinflip up in the air,” he said. “I don’t want to play it anymore.

“I want intelligent, paced games, with open worlds, and skill gap games. I want to be able to aim and shoot and have that be part of the skill and not some f**king bloom weapon or some randomized number that’s put on my shotgun.”

After composing himself from his devastating loss, the Doc reshared his thoughts in a more reserved manner, and his optimism for the new season content is low.

“The game is dying, and they’re trying to squeeze anything out of this game,” he added. “Let me tell you, after looking at that content, good luck with the rest of the season like holy sh*t. Good luck with that for a couple of months.

He also made his intentions clear on what he wants to see from Epic ⁠— a game that, to him, lives up to its hype as an ‘era-defining’ title. Until that happens, he’s not going to tweet about the game.

“I want something to bring me to the next level of gaming development,” he explained. “I want f**king massive worlds and expanding narratives ⁠— I don’t know man, I’m just a big thinker. I think big, I don’t think small like this game.

“It’s created this false perception that it’s the game that sets the bar, that pushes the envelope of video games from a mainstream standpoint, and I hate it.”

The Doc is not the only one to be displeased with some of the new additions to Season 2. Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins slammed Epic for unvaulting the Mythic Drum Gun, labelling the gun “disgusting.”

However, whether Doc will actually delete the battle royale for good this time remains to be seen. He’s criticized the game multiple times, and given it second chances, but the new update has at least struck enough of a nerve to stop giving the game publicity for the foreseeable future.


What’s included in Fortnite Crew membership? Battle Pass, skins, prices

Fortnite Crew membership allows players to get the Battle Pass, V-Bucks, exclusive skins and other monthly benefits for a set price. The list of rewards will update each month, but it’s made a promising start to kick off Season 5. 

Epic Games have confirmed that the new system will come into action alongside the game’s first major update of Season 5. Instead of having to purchase individual skins from the Fortnite Item Shop like usual, the developers are offering guaranteed rewards to Crew members that cannot be obtained any other way.

Monthly subscriptions have been all the rage since Netflix rose to prominence, but now many major players in the gaming world have followed suit. Xbox has its Ultimate Game Pass, for example, and now Fortnite’s creators have come up with their own.

Let’s run through what’s included.

Fortnite Crew membership price and start date

One of the most important factors in a player making up their mind about buying Fortnite Crew will be the price. The full price list can be seen below, for various currencies:

  • $11.99
  • £9.99

This looks to be pretty reasonable, if you consider the Battle Pass is usually $9.50 anyway. Aside from that, it’s also worth noting that the Fortnite Crew membership won’t be available until December 2, which is when Season 5 launches.

What’s included? (December 2020)

The Fortnite Crew outfit pack for December will include skins and cosmetics unobtainable in any other way.

According to an official blog post from Epic Games, the Fortnite Crew membership will include the following:

  • Fortnite Season 5 Battle Pass
  • An exclusive monthly Crew Pack
  • 1,000 V-Bucks each month

These rewards will vary from month to month in terms of what’s included in the skin pack, though based on how obsessive the community has become over skins and cosmetics, it will likely be a popular event to open it each time.

They said in an official statement: “Monthly Crew Packs always contain a new Outfit along with at least one accessory. All items are exclusive to Fortnite Crew members.”

For those who haven’t yet seen it, a Fortnite Crew trailer was released on November 24.

  1. Launch Fortnite on your console or PC.
  2. Enter the Battle Pass menu screen.
  3. Click the Fortnite Crew signup icon.
  4. Enter your details and complete the sign-up!

How to get Fortnite Crew rewards

The Fortnite Crew rewards will differ slightly month on month, in terms of what’s included in the Outfit Pack.

Epic Games have confirmed all you have to do, once you’re all signed up, is log into your Primary Platform each monthly subscription period to access your subscription content. This will vary from month to month in terms of what’s included, though generally the V-Bucks and Battle Pass will be guaranteed.

Is it cross platform?

In a series of frequently answered questions, Epic Games have confirmed a player’s Crew account will only work for their primary platform. For example, if you sign up for the Crew on Xbox One or Series X|S, it won’t carry over to PlayStation 4/5.

On the subject, they have said: “Your Subscription is associated with the platform on which you purchased it (your “Primary Platform”) until it is canceled and is not transferable. Be sure to choose the platform (e.g., Xbox, PlayStation, Switch) you purchase your Subscription on carefully. You’ll be able to access the items you receive from the Subscription across different platforms, but the V-Bucks you receive may not be redeemable on other platforms.”

We will update this every month and add new details about Fortnite Crew rewards, as and when that information is made available.
