Popular streamer Dr DisRespect is known for his loud, harsh but honest opinions on matters, and has shared his unapologetic thoughts on what used to be the best battle royale on the market.

The back-to-back Blockbuster Video Game Champion is a long-time Twitch fixture who has stayed consistently popular because of his uncensored opinions, impressive skills in multiple games, and impeccable mustache.

Dr DisRespect has turned back to PUBG, calling the battle royale the lowest experience anyone could possibly play in their gaming life, and he was just getting started.

PUBG CorporationThe Doc seemed like he was about to blow up, before calmly exiting the game.

The Doc was playing the early stages of a match on when he was looking to engage on a foe in the same building as the streamer.

Dr DisRespect eventually made his move, and seemingly landed more than a few bullets on his target when he was met with return fire that instantly deleted the Doc.

He immediately exited the game and proceeded to let out his fuming opinions of the game.

“If you’re into PC gaming and shooters, or you’re just getting into them, don’t ever play [PUBG],” the Doc said. “It’s not the correct representation of an optimized, fun [shooter]. It’s the exact opposite.”

The streamer left no room for interpretation as he continued to cement his resounding judgement of the game.

“[PUBG] is the clunkiest, most unathletic, pathetic mess you’ll ever play in the history of your gaming career. Because I can comfortably say that’s what [PUBG] is to me,” he said.

The streamer vehemently exited the game afterward, and kept the moment alive for a stint longer with echoed “Naw naw naw”’s voicing his lasting disapproval.

The Indian government has banned PUBG Mobile, one of the most popular mobile games in the country, along with over 100 more apps with links to Chinese publishers.

PUBG Mobile has a touchy history in India specifically. Countless news reports of teens becoming incredibly addicted to the game have filled Indian media for over two year. The game has been blamed for bad exam results, and in some extreme stories, death.

The controversy around PUBG Mobile in India has prompted calls for the government to ban it in the past, by a student association worried about its effect on education.

On September 2, India’s Interior Ministry banned the game, along with 118 other apps, citing concerns around cybersecurity, as tensions with China rise.

PUBG Mobile was one of the most popular games on iOS and Android in India.

They said the apps were “prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of India, Defence of India, Security of State and Public Order.”

The move follows India’s previous bans of other Chinese social media apps, including TikTok.

In a statement, the Indian government said: “The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology has received many complaints from various sources including several reports about misuse of some mobile apps available on Android and iOS platforms for stealing and surreptitiously transmitting users’ data in an unauthorized manner to servers which have locations outside of India. There has been a strong chorus in the public space to take strict action against apps that harm India’s sovereignty as well as the privacy of our citizens.”

Other banned apps, via TechCrunch, include Baidu, WeChat Work, Tencent Weiyun, Rise of Kingdoms, APUS Launcher, Tencent Weiyun, VPN for TikTok, Mobile Taobao, Youko, Sina News and CamCard.

PUBG Mobile is notable though, because of how wildly popular it was in the country. In March 2019, police actually arrested ten students who were playing the game because the game had been banned in that specific region.

“Our team caught these youths red-handed. They were taken into custody after they were found playing the PUBG game,” said Police inspector Rohit Raval at the time.
