When Dr Disrespect is around, controversy is usually just around the corner. Even if it isn’t with his antics on stream, Doc always finds a way to come up with something controversial that usually sparks a debate.
In the latest of his controversial comments, Dr Disrespect (again) took a dig at mobile gaming and boasted about his expensive setup. Clearly, this was bound to send the mobile gaming community into a meltdown and that is exactly what happened.
Doc said, “I’ve got 3 state-of-the-art 1ms speed color calibrated monitors staring at me, a keyboard with titan switch optical keystrokes and a mouse that weighs literally nothing backed by a 200k multi pc setup…. ….and you have the guts to tell me mobile gaming is a serious thing?”
Subtlety has never been a part of Doc’s dictionary, and that was pretty evident here. Obviously, this attracted a lot of hatred from the mobile gaming community, and a lot of the popular streamers spoke up on the issue as well.
The above responses weren’t the highlight of this situation. The peak was when the head of YouTube Gaming, Ryan Wyatt, replied with a zinger. He said, “And Nobru is pulling 4x the live viewership than you just playing from his phone”.
The comment was hilarious considering Doc just moved to YouTube a couple of months ago and is probably one of the biggest streamers on the platform. After his comments on mobile gaming, the thought of a mobile gamer beating his viewership will not sit well with Doc. However, Ryan clarified that his comment was nothing more than friendly banter.
Interestingly, Doc had actually previously cleared the air on his similar comments about mobile gaming, when he had streamed with Indian YouTuber Sc0ut. But now that he has taken a dig at mobile gaming again, it seems like Doc is never going to believe in mobile gaming.
Even though he is definitely entitled to his opinion, Doc should be more open to the potential that mobile gaming has. Mobile Esports have grown exponentially and are on their way to becoming even bigger. Doc may soon regret his statements once he sees how big mobile gaming is, globally. Till then, the ‘Two-Time’ refuses to believe that mobile gaming can be a ‘thing’.
