He might be the Two Time Consecutive Blockbuster Video Game Champ 1993-1994, but Dr DisRespect still can’t get to grips with Fortnite Battle Royale.

Best known for playing games like PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) and H1Z1, The Doc was taking a hiatus from streaming when Fortnite Battle Royale truly started to blow up.

The massively popular title from Epic Games is yet another Battle Royale game that has risen to prominence in recent years, but its unique gameplay and building mechanics have seen it surpass all competition in 2018.

Dr DisRespect has tried to come to terms with the new phenomenon since returning to streaming in February but he is rarely able to last more than a few hours before his frustrations with the game reach boiling point.

This was once again the case on May 24th when the popular streamer got fed up with Fortnite after about three hours of streaming and decided to move on to his preferred game, PUBG.

Dr DisRespect made it clear that he doesn’t understand the hype surrounding Fortnite, calling it an “overrated mess” and hinting that he believes there is a lot of “phoneyness” from people claiming to enjoy it.

“This game is a fucking overrated mess. Get me off of it, I’m bored to death playing that game. I’m playing this tournament and that’s it. That game is, that game is fucking terr- like how is that game popular?

I don’t get it! I mean I get it, 7 year olds, 8 year olds and ‘whoop de do, doop de do’, but MAN, I am not into it.

I try to be, alright? I think there’s a lot of phoneyness involved around that game. A lot of phoneyness around that game, I’ll tell you that!

Presumably the comments about “phoneyness” are directed towards other content creators and streamers who the Doc believes are exaggerating how much they enjoy Fortnite compared to other games.

He does have his moments where he enjoys the Epic Games title but, more often than not, this reaction is the more common one.

Ali-A reveals unreleased Fortnite skin haunting Weeping Woods

Popular Fortnite YouTuber Ali-A has shown that the previously leaked Madcap skin looks to be coming soon as a mobile glitch has revealed a strange character ‘haunting’ Weeping Woods. 

Across the different Fortnite seasons and updates, Epic Games have released a vast amount of cosmetics – with fans picking out their favorites and donning them in-game. 

Typically, these skins are leaked ahead of time as leakers are able to decrypt games files that are added to the mix with each new update and patch. Some of these skins never see the light of day, or are held back for quite a while, despite being leaked following a patch. 

One of the skins that falls into this category is the Madcap – a glowing, purple, Mushroom-themed skin. It was leaked quite a while back, and while it hasn’t been available just yet, it looks like it will be pretty soon.

Each new Fortnite update leaks a whole host of skins.

Popular YouTuber Ali-A pointed out that some Fortnite mobile players on Android had spotted the outline of a skin sitting around in Weeping Woods. 

The character that seems to be ‘haunting’ the POI, is stood under a tree with their arms crossed. However, it’s not colorful. Instead, it’s a blacked-out silhouette – almost as if it’s going to be added soon, but is showing up as a visual glitch in-game. 

Ali-A noted that the character is most definitely Madcap because of the shape of the head, and given that he’s hanging around Weeping Woods, there might be a challenge or quest line involved with unlocking the skin.

Even though the YouTuber’s speculation seems pretty spot on, there’s no telling if he’s right just yet because Epic Games hasn’t announced anything. 

It could very well be that, as Fortnitemares unfolds, the skin will finally be available through the item shop and there are also challenges in Weeping Woods to unlock skin styles. Though, we’ll just have to wait and see.
