Dr Disrespect makes shocking prediction about Fortnite, explains why the game “sucks”

Fortnite will “die” in the next year, claiming that people will be embarrassed to be associated with the battle royale game. 

The popular internet personality has been very active in terms of promoting battle royale games, having hosted his very own Code Red tournaments in Fortnite, Call of Duty Blackout and Apex Legends in the past. 

However, he doesn’t seem to be very fond of Epic Games’ product anymore. In fact, he now says that he “hates” it. 

Epic GamesFortnite dominated Twitch in 2018 but Dr Disrespect seems to think its popularity will soon come to an end.

In a heated outburst on February 19, The Doc explained the reasons behind his prediction and even went on to compare it to a children’s television series. “Fortnite is a fad,” he declared. “It will die in a year because people will be embarrassed to be associated with it. Guaranteed.

“It’s just like Teletubbies. It’s the same thing,” Dr Disrespect explained. “It’s one of these quick, hot, money making things when the reality is the product sucks and nobody really, really, really, really, really thinks it’s quality. It’s terrible.”

Unlike many streamer rants, though, The Doc also justified his feelings with examples. The Twitch streamer is still in utter disbelief about one feature that he feels shouldn’t have as much influence as it does in Battle Royale.

“I can’t move around. I feel like I’m running at half a mile per hour for the entire game,” he explained. “Right, when I go to shoot a guy accurately, immediately, reaction speed… I get fucking bloom all over the place. Bloom! Who introduces bloom to a shooter game, huh? Hey, North Carolina nerds your product sucks. It’s terrible!”

Of course, he’s referring to the much criticized RNG (Random Number Generator) in Fortnite, which gives bullets a random chance of landing at their intended target. 

Dr Disrespect muttered about not playing Fortnite again in the future, during this outburst. Whether or not he sticks to that remains to be seen, but he clearly doesn’t expect the game to dominate 2019 as it did in 2018.

Conor McGregor explains why YouTube boxing is “good business” for the sport

Jake Paul and Logan Paul helped popularize ‘YouTube Boxing’ in recent years, although it’s often described as a mockery of the sport. However, Conor McGregor explained why he isn’t against it and thinks it’s good business.

Conor McGregor has been focused on his upcoming UFC 257 bout against Dustin Poirier for a while now. However, that hasn’t stopped Jake Paul from doing his best to rope the former double champion into an exhibition boxing match.

Jake first called him out back in November 2020 after he knocked out Nate Robinson. Then, he taunted him to accept a $50 million fight offer several weeks later and has been flailing about ever since. 

He still hasn’t managed to get his attention. However, his antics did draw out comments from UFC President Dana White and Conor’s coach, John Kavanagh. Now, Conor has finally shared his thoughts on YouTube boxing as a whole, and here’s what he had to say.

Jake Paul has tried and failed to bait a response from Conor McGregor.

“A lot of people are criticizing [YouTube boxing] as maybe making a bit of a mockery of fighting,” asked an interviewer. It’s the predominant view among fans of combat sports. “I want you to weigh in on that for me.” 

“If they are fighting, well, then it can’t make a mockery of fighting, right?” said Conor. “They’re getting in, and they’re competing. I am not so much against it. The YouTube kid and the NBA star competing [was] good business.

“Am I into those competitions myself? It’s not the most high level if any level… [but] as they say if it makes dollars, it makes sense,” he added. “I know Dana and the UFC are not really into it, but… I’m not so against it. I think if people are willing to get in and take the risk of making that walk, I am certainly a viewer.”

Conor’s opinion might come as a surprise to fans who expected him to make scathing comments. However, as a businessman himself, it seems like he’s all for it. Plus, as he said, YouTube boxers are still fighting and giving it their all.

On another note, Conor didn’t seem too incensed about Jake. He barely mentioned him at all. 

Still, it’s only a matter of time before Jake responds, and there’s no doubt he won’t be too thrilled about being referred to as “the YouTube kid.”
