Sodapoppin Celebrates Like He Won the Event After Killing Dr DisRespect in the H1Z1 Invitational

When you're the 1993/1994 Blockbuster video game champion, that usually means you'll have a target on your back when you enter a new competitive environment. After spending time working for Sledgehammer Games working on multiplayer map design for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Dr DisRespect returned to viewers screens in early 2016, and quickly amassed a sizeable following. Part of his popularity is down to him rarely making friends with other popular streamers, choosing instead to highlight their weaknesses and vulnerabilities. This had led to the Doc becoming a target in tournaments such as the H1Z1 Invitational at TwitchCon 2017.

The $200,000 tournament featured 75 players who all competed in three rounds of King of the Kill, which launches players onto a vast map without anything, requiring them to pickup weapons and equipment as they fight to the death. One of the more popular players in attendance was Youtuber and streamer, Sodapoppin. Boasting over 614,000 subscribers on YouTube alone, he streamed the entire invitational via a headcam setup. During the time he was live, it caught the moment that he took down Dr DisRespect, which included a celebration like he'd won the tournament. The clip has been viewed over 60,000 times in the 24 hours after being uploaded.

Unfortunately for Sodapoppin and Dr DisRespect, both failed to make it into the top 10 as Sandy Ravage took the title and the $70,000 first place prize. Did your favorite streamer make it into the money? Check out the full final standings from the all-star competition. x
