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.
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.
