Dr Disrespect unveils his finished Rogue Company map “The Arena”

Streaming superstar Dr. Disrespect revealed a full 3D rendering of the new map he’s been working on for Rogue Company called “The Arena”, and devs from Hi-Rez already seem very on-board.

On August 10 Dr Disrespect was challenged by Rogue Company developers to go back to his roots and design his own custom stage for the game, a feat the Two Time managed to accomplish in just under 24 hours.

His 2D design certainly seemed to impress devs, as they promised to provide him with whatever he needed to make The Arena a reality after the base design was unveiled.

Now, Doc has come out with a full, 3D render of his proposed custom map, and those at Hi-Rez definitely seem to be game to run with the design.

The stage seems to be set on an outdoor pavilion leading to an entrance of the Champion’s Club Arena, complete with plenty of cover for Rogues, and a generous amount of palm trees.

There are several indoor areas too, and we can only hope that they’ll eventually be turned into some of the Arena’s various rooms we’ve come to know and love from Doc’s streams.

“I just wonder if it’s going to be too small, you know? The intention was to make it small, the action’s a lot faster, in terms of committing to a lane – boom, you’re in it.” Doc explained. “The decision-making is a lot faster, there’s no waiting around, that’s the goal anyway.”

“It’s just like boom, it kinda throws you in, and you’re in it,” the Two Time continued. “But at the same time, there’s still three lanes, lots of dead space in the design which in the design allows separation of combat spaces, rather than getting shot from across an entire lane from the other side. We’ll see what they think.”

Doc didn’t have to wait long at all to see what devs thought, as he got a response on twitter shortly after posting the video of his complete, 3D rendering.

“No one does it better Doc, this map is already looking like the peak of the mountain and we aren’t even halfway done,” Rogue Company replied on Twitter. “You wrote the book on Violence, Speed, and Momentum and The Arena brings it.”

While nothing has been set in stone just yet, it certainly seems like Hi-Rez is pulling out all the stops to make Dr Disrespect’s custom Rogue Company map a reality, and we’re already looking forward to it.


TikToker Nessa Barrett slams TalentX’s Michael Gruen: “He hates me”

Nessa Barrett has slammed TalentX manager Micheal Gruen in the third installment of Josh Richards and Dave Portnoy’s new podcast BFFs in which they talk about all things TikTok drama.

The first episode of the podcast sent fans into a frenzy after the Barstool Sports’ president claimed that Nessa Barrett had found her fame through dating Josh Richards. The host claimed he was “in the middle of a TikTok war” and fuelled drama by tweeting memes and jokes about the situation.

But for their third episode, they actually invited Nessa herself onto the show, and while there appeared to be no beef between Dave and the popular TikToker, it was revealed that the manager of TalentX Michael Gruen and Nessa are feuding.

Fans of Nessa will know that the pair don’t necessarily like each other. After the drama surrounding the first episode, Michael weighed in with his own opinion on an Instagram fan page for the star.

He wrote, “I must’ve missed the memo that Nessa – or anyone for that matter – deserves ‘the world’. The earth is inhabited by ~7B people…last I checked Nessa is just one of them (along with myself and everyone else).” Nessa did not publicly reply but she did unfollow him on Instagram.

It turns out that their beef runs a little deeper. After remaining quite held back with her answers for the first half of the podcast, Nessa suddenly had words to say once Micheal was mentioned by Dave.

(Topic starts at 27:00)

She said, “I do not like him. He’s rude. He hates me. He has it out for me. I think he’s jealous because he’s secretly in love with Josh which is no problem but yeah he has called me ugly to my face and in front of people”

Josh attempted to defend Michael, and said that the word “Ugly” wasn’t used, but instead that “he said my taste in women was not good.”

Nessa continued, “He has said like the beginning of quarantine that he wants to send me on a one-way ticket to Mexico and I’ve been sat there alone and I was 17 like he is just rude…I just don’t waste my energy on him I just don’t like him he’s a terrible person” She also added and emphasized that “he is a certified a**hole.”

Michael is yet to react to Nessa’s brutal takedown, but given his reputation, he is likely to respond very soon.
