Dr DisRespect would delete all of the H1Z1 files and chalk the whole game up as a “learning experience” if he was put in charge of its development.

“I would delete everything on H1Z1, take it in as a learning experience, and make a way better game.”

One of the Doc’s viewers donated to the popular streamer to suggest that that he should be given “full reign” over Daybreak Game Company and “revive” H1Z1.

“Nah, I would delete everything on H1Z1,” the Twitch star responded. “I would look at all of the good stuff that came out of H1Z1, all of the bad stuff… Take it in as an experience, take it in as feedback, take it in as a learning experience if you will, and make a way better game.”

Dr DisRespect is known for playing battle royale games and used to stream H1Z1 on a regular basis. However, the Daybreak Game Company title has been left behind by other games in the genre over the last year.

Long gone are the days of over 100,000 people playing the game at the same time. Instead, the peak player count for the last 30 days sits at just over 6,000, according to steamcharts.

H1Z1 was one of the pioneers of the battle royale genre, but games like PUBG, Fortnite and even the soon-to-be-released Call of Duty: Blackout seem to have built upon what the likes of DayZ and H1Z1 introduced; creating a more polished final product.

The Doc seems to feel that revitalizing H1Z1 is an impossible mission but he doesn’t appear to be ruling out the possibility of the developers at Daybreak Games being able to use it as a platform to build a new, better version of it in the future.


Streamer embarrasses H1Z1 hacker with fake ‘interview’

Twitch streamer Flamehopper turned the tables on a hacker in H1Z1 by proposing an interview that immediately became a way to trap them. 

Before PUBG blew up on Twitch, Fortnite took over the world, and Apex Legends made its mark, H1Z1 was the original battle royale game that streamers flocked to. 

Daybreak’s title was never as polished as its rivals but it set the tone for what was going to follow – kicking off the battle royale revolution. Since then, it has been left behind – despite plenty of updates – but some streamers are still playing. With a smaller player base, hackers and cheats can have more of a free reign as they want their moment in the spotlight.

That’s exactly what Flamehopper did during his January 17 stream. As the streamer played H1Z1, he ran into a hacker who had been making a police car fly across the sky when he managed to bring them down to the ground for an ‘interview.’

The hacker asked that he not be killed, to which the streamer obliged – at least for a minute. “I have a question for you, come here. On a scale of one to five, where five is the greatest… hold on, you’re bouncing all over, we’ve got to get the interview cam set,” said Flamehopper, as he got the hacker to stand still.

Of course, it was all a rouse. As soon as the cheater stopped avoiding his clutches, the streamer gunned him down with a quick burst of fire to the head. “I hope you find happiness bro,” he added before driving away. “I hope you find happiness.”

After the deed had been done, the streamer took a moment to celebrate the fact that he had a ‘clean lobby’ now that the hackers were out of the way. 

However, if he does run into anymore in the future, Flamehopper will have to hope that the hackers want their moment in the spotlight if he plans to run the same bamboozle attempt again.
