Toronto Ultra will be missing some violence, speed and momentum.
Since Call of Duty: Warzone gained traction within the gaming community, fans across the globe gather in their thousands to watch pros play this game. Like any popular title, this game now has a huge twitch following, a huge concurrent player base and tonnes of competitions, with some offering life-changing prize pots for the victor. The Toronto Ultra competition is one such tournament, offering players the chance to compete for 100,000 dollars. However, it seems that online superstar Dr Disrespect won’t be playing, as the tournament officials have decided to ban him from participating.
This news comes off the back of Disrespect’s proposed teammate ZLaner confirming that he will be without his teammate for the tournament. Many believe that this ban has something to do with Disrespects infamous Twitch ban from last year. We still don’t know why the platform banned the popular streamer but they have upheld the ban regardless. So because the Toronto Ultra is hosted on Twitch, that means Disrespect can’t have anything to do with it.
Disappointing For Disrespect
Obviously, Dr Disrespect and his fans will be disappointed with this decision. However, arguably no one will be more affected than his partner ZLaner who now has to scramble to find another teammate. He had this to say about the whole situation;
“I’m still going to be playing in the Toronto Ultra tournament, but Doc is unfortunately not going to be. He’s not allowed to play.”
“I got a message back from the organizers from Toronto Ultra and Call of Duty, they’re the ones pulling the tournament off, and they said Doc is not allowed.”
“I’m assuming it has to do with his Twitch ban. I messaged Doc right away, and I was like, ‘bro, is there any magic you can pull or anything you can do?’ and he said, ‘unfortunately not. It’s weird that they’re not letting me play in this thing.”
Ever since the Twitch ban, Disrespect has found a new home on Youtube. However, the devastating thing about this ban is that he can’t play with his usual crew. All the biggest and best streamers are on Twitch. Especially after the death of Mixer brought Ninja back into the fold. So this isolation has had a real negative effect on Disrespect. However, we are glad that he is still powering through and despite this setback. We hope to see the bad boy of streaming back in competitive games very soon.
