Dr Disrespect loses his mind over Fortnite Chapter 2 trailer

It’s no secret that Fortnite and the leaked Chapter 2 trailer might have been his breaking point.

The wildly successful Twitch streamer has always been vocal with his displeasure of games and Fortnite has not been exempt from that criticism.

Following the conclusion of Season X, Fortnite has been stuck in a black hole with no indications on when it’ll be back up, and Doc has already hoped it would never return and has bashed it in the past for being the most “soulless” game in history.

Dr Disrespect - TwitchDoc always wants his opinion heard.

Of course, Fortnite was always going to come back and it looks like the new trailer for the upcoming chapter has finally broke the Two-Time for good.

He watched the trailer multiple times on his stream, expressing his “pleasure” every step of the way. However, to those who know the Doc, they’ll know every compliment he gave was soaked with sarcasm.

“Fortnite 2 Battle Pass,” he yelled. “One more time, he’s on an offshore racing boat! This is it! This is it! This is what we’re all getting excited for! It’s back! Fortnite 2 is going to save so many careers.”

He slowly slid down in his chair before completely disappearing off camera yelling about his excitement but not before watching the trailer several times.

Doc has had an up and down Fortnite career, often being one of the games featured during his Triple-Threat Challenges, but has uninstalled the game on more than one occasion.

The Two-Time will surely check out the game at least a few times when Chapter 2 finally launches, but there’s no telling how long he’ll stick with it. He is a self-proclaimed fan of racing boats, so maybe that was genuine excitement when he saw that and it could be enough to pique his interest.

We currently have no idea when Fortnite will be back online, with some leaks suggesting it could be as late as October 17.

Fortnite World Cup champion David ‘aqua’ Wang has been banned by Epic Games, following controversy over alleged stream sniping against FNCS opponents.

Aqua’s trio (with Rezon and Noahreyli) have been participating in FNCS Europe and, following the Week 3 semis, were accused of stream-sniping another popular trio: Benjy ‘Benjyfishy’ Fish, Martin ‘MrSavage’ Andersen, and Kevin ‘LeTsHe’ Fedjuschkin.

Although fans initially deemed aqua’s behavior suspicious, things quickly escalated. With Benjyfishy’s team unable to qualify for the Week 3 finals and the discovery that aqua was watching MrSavage’s stream during the competition, the controversy has spiraled.

Aqua banned by Epic Games

On October 25, aqua confirmed that his account had been banned from competitive, with Epic Games simply providing the reason as “other.”

Following condemnations of the World Cup winner’s team, rumors began circulating that aqua, Rezon, and Noahreyli had been banned by participating past the first match of the Finals. 

It was never officially legitimized and has since been made even more unclear by responses from some of the involved parties.

After the rumor mill buzzed with the reports that aqua’s team was banned from competing, he took to Twitter and gave a concise clarification denying those allegations: “We are not banned, we just don’t wanna play. It’s boring without early fighting Benjy.”

Given the difficulty inherent to confirming someone was in fact stream-sniping and didn’t coincidentally run into a fellow streamer, many believe it is unlikely that the World Cup winner has actually been exiled from the competition.

Additionally, some have noted that bans typically result in removal from the leaderboard, something that aqua’s team has not been hit with.

As for how the players are handling it, aqua and Benjyfishy simply joked about the incident.

 

At 17 years old, aqua represented his home country of Austria to the fullest by winning the 2019 Fortnite World Cup’s Duos event with Norway’s Emil ‘Nyhrox’ Bergquist. With a smooth $1.5 million earned from the World Cup, he’s since signed with Cooler Esport and continued to win competitions across Europe.

We will continue to update this article with more details as they become available.
