Popular streamer TimTheTatman and Call of Duty Warzone are usually at the receiving end of Doc’s criticism. However, the Call of Duty veteran has found a new game to diss. He recently took to Twitter to mock the popular MOBA game, League of Legends.

Since its release in 2009, Riot Games has successfully taken League to be one of the most popular games. Even after 12 years of release, LoL still has a massive fanbase as well as a flourishing esports scene. Following Dota 2, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and Fortnite, LoL has the 4th largest overall prize pool in esports with a massive figure of $83m.

It is hard not to know or even hear about a game of such high worth. However, somehow, Dr Disrespect doesn’t know what League of Legends is about. In a recent tweet, Doc assumed that LoL is a trading card game, and naturally, a lot of people are offended.

Twitter reacts to Dr Disrespect dissing League of Legends

Dr Disrespect has been an avid player and streamer of Call of Duty games. However, only 4 COD tournaments feature in the top 50 esports events in terms of the overall prize pool. On the other hand, League of Legends has 10. Moreover, arguably LoL also has more active players than Call of Duty.

When Doc called LoL a trading card game, many players came in defense of the popular classic. Many even resorted to mocking the indefinite suspension of Dr Disrespect from Twitch.

However, in Doc’s defense, understanding League can be pretty hard for those who are not interested in MOBA titles. Moreover, the pick/ban feature and a plethora of Legends could also feed Doc’s confusion. In the end, it looks like Dr Disrespect managed to do what he does best and entertain his fans as he started this banter.

Doc’s tweet gave hundreds an opportunity to talk and joke about LoL and cheer up their day. Hopefully, as Dr Disrespect falls in love with Valorant, a Riot Games title, he might learn a bit more about LoL. Since Riot might soon implement a pick/ban feature in Valorant, this information will certainly come in handy.
