Dr Disrespect believes Sea of Thieves could be next big game, on one condition

Sea of Thieves‘ popularity on Twitch is surging by the day and Dr Disrespect has suggested that it could be the next big thing, if the developer continues to bring out new content for the game.

The Doc has been part of a recent movement on the streaming platform, which has seen high profile names such as himself, Ninja, CouRage, TimTheTatMan and others dedicate more time to the Rare game. 

Now, judging by these comments, he could well be on the brink of making this a more regular thing for his audience to enjoy. 

Just after battling off a crew with a random teammate on a sloop, fellow pirate OG Wolfe started to ask the popular streamer about his thoughts on the game so far. “How are you enjoying the game so far, Doc?” he asked. “It’s good. It’s good” Doc responded. 

After being pressed on whether or not he believed Sea of Thieves was going to be the next big game on Twitch, though, Doc seemed pretty torn.

“I don’t think so. No, I think it will last for a couple more weeks and then, you know, they’ve got the arena coming out – whatever that means – so that will generate some additional hype and then if they keep adding content then I’d probably say yeah.” 

The Arena he was referring to is a new game mode which was announced back in November of last year and is expected in “early 2019” – so, that should be arriving sometime in the near future. 

It will bring together a number of crews in the same close space, forcing them to fight against each other to obtain the most treasure and “compete for glory.”

Summit1g defends actions on Sea of Thieves after being labeled “toxic”

Popular Twitch streamer Jaryd ‘Summit1G’ Lazar has hit back at a report and claims that he was toxic on Sea of Thieves after breaking up servers where players wouldn’t interact in PvP. 

For the most part, playing Sea of Thieves can be a fun and enjoyable experience. You hop aboard a ship with a friend or two and sail the seas in hopes of completing quests picking up loot that you can sell on.

However, there are plenty of players who try to ruin that – typically through bombarding your ships with constant attacks. As a streamer, Summit has dealt with his fair share of this too, but he’s been able to fight back. 

Previously, he’s put people on blast on Twitter for not playing the game the right way, and while he hasn’t played Sea of Thieves for a while, he’s come under fire for his previous behavior. 

Microsoft StudiosSome players have big issues with the Sea of Thieves community.

Summit’s supposed “toxic” behavior was highlighted in a recent article after streamers quit the game due to harassment from other players. As he started up his October 4 stream, the leader of the 1G squad fired back – tearing into how some players aim to keep servers to themselves in a bid to farm coins. 

“Motherf**ker, you don’t talk about how they get those servers going in the first place – on Discord, through harassment themselves. They will stomp a ship out until they leave the game and get on their ship, you feel me? They don’t talk about all that stuff though,” he said, addressing the article. 

He turned his attention to the players who try to ruin these servers, adding: “Then, they sit on their servers where it’s supposed to be a give and take experience, pirates that take, and pirates that find, and it’s a big circle of we need each other but they sit in their circlejerk farms avoiding all aspects of fear.”

Summit added that playing like that is “not how the game should be played” so after those players took things to Discord in a bit to communicate and organize, he and his pals used “streamer benefits” to find out about them, as well ultimately infiltrating the servers.

He added that he’d never verbally abuse anyone in a racist or sexist way, but just trash-talked if someone else started on him.“We’d only talk s**t if they talk s**t, we’d only give it if they gave it,” Summit continued.  

“And if they’re giving it, they’d take it. They’re fine, they’re big boys, but what we’re talking about here is ridiculous. So, I just don’t understand why it’s a bad thing for one side to do it but not a bad thing for another side to do it.”

Plenty of his fans and Sea of Thieves players backed Summit’s cause to frustrate the players who keep servers to themselves in a bid to coin farm.

The game has undergone plenty of changes in recent months, but it’s unknown if he’ll return to it on a full-time basis as he once did.
