Dr Disrespect Reveals Why He Won’t Stream Lost Ark

Lost Ark has already found a significant amount of success on Steam, but Dr Disrespect doesn’t seem too interested in checking out the game for himself. During a recent stream, Dr Disrespect and Tim “TimTheTatman” Betar got into a spirited discussion about Lost Ark, and the MMO genre as a whole. MMOs require a significant time investment from players, and Dr Disrespect made the argument that he doesn’t see any difference in the skill level of different players. It’s an interesting argument to be sure, and it’s one that TimTheTatman greatly disagreed with!

“Where’s the skill, though? Ultimately. In terms of a skill that you might be able to recognize from one player to another. What’s that difference? So, if I’m watching, let’s say, I dunno, Shroud play the game, and then I watch you play the game, MMO is one of those games where I couldn’t tell the f**king difference between who is a better player,” Dr Disrespect said during the stream.

Dr Disrespect’s comments say a lot about how he views video games in general, and his specific tastes. While the competitive aspect of gaming is a big draw, there are a lot of gamers that enjoy different experiences. This is not the first time Dr Disrespect has made his distaste for MMOs known; last year, the streamer similarly revealed his disinterest in New Worldanother MMO released by Amazon.

For those unfamiliar with Lost Ark, the game has been a massive success story around the world. Developed by Smilegate, Lost Ark initially debuted in South Korea in 2019. Amazon Games picked up publishing duties for the game in other regions, and it is now available as a free-to-play game in North America and Europe. While Dr Disrespect clearly has no interest in trying out Lost Arkit seems that plenty of other people have been more than happy to try it for themselves!

Lost Ark is available now on PC. You can check out all of our previous coverage of the game right here.
