While boasting his expensive PC gaming setup, Dr Disrespect might have stepped over the line when he asked, “…. and you have the guts to tell me mobile gaming is a serious thing?” Owing to his controversial tweet, the streamer has sparked a heated debate between two primary factions of gaming.
Mobile creators around the world have not only criticized Doc, but challenged him to play against them. In a recent video, Doc clarified his stance on the matter:
To say the least, the video is a roller coaster ride of Dr Disrespect making fun of mobile gaming and defending his words simultaneously.
Apparently, Doc was just comparing his gaming setup with a mobile gaming setup. The backlash against the tweet surprised the Two-Time, and he even wished to not express his opinion anymore.
“You know, I just explained what my setup was in comparison to a mobile gaming setup. I don’t know what to do, like I shouldn’t even say anything anymore.”
In the latter part of the video, Doc again emphasized how he was just showing off his setup.
“Again, I just explained what my setup was, and then with all that said, do I take someone playing on a phone seriously? I mean, that’s it. It was just a question, you know?”
Despite the aforementioned clarification, ZLaner and Dr Disrespect missed no chance of taking sly digs at mobile gaming. Doc started off by mocking a mobile gamer who was facing network problems and constantly made such jokes on the live-stream.
In a specific instance, Zlaner and Doc eliminated a player and joked about him being a mobile gamer.
“Looks like a mobile gamer to me, because he might have got a text while he was trying to shoot me.”
This is not the first time that the most ruthless competitor in video game history has disregarded the mobile gaming community. Back in 2019, he tweeted, “Mobile gamers aren’t real gamers.” However, Doc had soon collaborated with one of the biggest mobile gaming entities in India, Sc0ut. Surprisingly, he also wanted to get ahead of the controversy.
Will Dr Disrespect showcase a similar approach this time?
