Dr Disrespect explains why he’ll never play “sh*thole” PUBG again

In a passionate rant, star Twitch streamer Dr Disrespect proclaimed that he will never play PUBG ever again after dying to a hacker in a 25-minute long match.

Out of all the biggest streamers, no one is more critical of the games they play on stream than Dr Disrespect, who sometimes spends more time uninstalling games and ranting about them than actually playing.

PUBG certainly falls under that category, as the Doc has trashed the game on countless occasions, despite the fact that he’s streamed it for years and is actually one of the faces of the community.

His latest incident came just a few days ahead of Christmas, when the Two-Time was trying to enjoy some of the new holiday flair that had been added to the game.

However, instead of having a jolly ol’ time, he spent a good while putting himself in a position to win a match only to die at the hands of someone who was clearly hacking.

Aimforest / PUBG CorpHacking has been an issue in PUBG for as long as the game’s been around.

“I just spent 15 f**king minutes in your sh*thole game to die to a hacker,” he said as he reported the cheater. “I spent 20-25 minutes setting up myself for success, rotating in, trying to pick people off coming into the zone, for them to throw a technical foul and lie to me.

He said this all with a relatively calm voice, which, funnily enough, sounded scarier than if he had yelled. Slowly but surely, however, the angry rage started to seep out as he uninstalled PUBG from his computer.

“Just absolute, stubborn clueless developers, get me off the game,” he said, his voice starting to grow louder. “I will never play Battlegrounds again, not that one. These Blueball developers over in South Korea, they’ve got no f**king idea, no clue how much time I put in that game.”

“How much time people have put in that game, asking for certain things that they just don’t want to give,” he went on, becoming angrier by the second. “And they put stupid sh*t all over and don’t correct the game or fix it. That’s why no one’s playing it anymore. That’s why you’re Pro League is being shut down. That’s why you’re not profiting anymore – because you’re not listening.”

All that said, however, most aren’t really going to buy in on the Doc never playing PUBG again, because he’s said something similar to this many times before but ultimately decided to re-install the game and try it out again and again.

Only time will tell whether or not he’s serious this time, but unless someone releases a game that he actually likes and can get into, it’s likely we haven’t seen the end of the Two-Time on PUBG.

TikTok’s most-followed content creator, Charli D’Amelio, has invested in her very first startup, and it’s a $50 million mobile banking service specifically aimed at teenagers.

In true D’Amelio fashion, Charli has decided to invest in her first company, Step, along with a slew of other celebrity investors.

What is Step?

Step is a mobile banking service directed toward teenagers aged 13-19, which announced this morning that it has raised over $50 million during its Series B funding stage.

Step has grown to over 500,000 users in two months after its official launch, and features a variety of elements seen in apps like Venmo and PayPal, allowing users to send money to friends via peer-to-peer technology.

The service also offers its teen customer-base FDIC-insured bank accounts without any fees, easing their foray into the financial world. Step even gives users a Visa card that allows them to establish credit prior to turning 18.

As for Charli D’Amelio, she seems to be quite jazzed about the bank’s entire concept, having risen to prominence in the mobile world before turning 16 this year.

“As a Step partner and customer, I’ve been able to see firsthand how easy Step makes it to manage your money while providing the educational resources that today’s teens need but have largely been unable to find—myself included,” D’Amelio stated.

“I’m excited to be able to use my platform to help close this gap and have made a direct investment in Step to help them develop even more useful products.”

Charli isn’t the only big name putting some stock into Step; A-list celebs like Will Smith, the Chainsmokers, and Justin Timberlake are also investing in the bank, making for a truly star-studded affair for the emerging company.

Step is planning to partner with even more celebrities and influencers in the future, and hopes to help its teenaged customer-base with everything from student loans to building credit in the long-term.

Step aims to help teenagers ease into the confusing financial world.

“Student loans are a big thing. Being able to extend credit to these folks. Being able to offer new products and services so they’re not paying these outrageous, predatory banking fees and high interest credit cards,” Step CEO MacDonald said of the service.

It looks like Charli is making big waves with this major investment, and all eyes are peeled to see if her 101 million TikTok followers will hop onto the Step trend, too.
