Dr Disrespect has explained how he thinks Warzone can actually hurt the viewer of the Call of Duty League, suggesting that the popularity is hurting Black Ops Cold War.
While Call of Duty’s first battle king, Black Ops 4s Blackout, received mixed reviews, Warzone’s first year has been an undeniable success. It is confirmed that it has upwards of 75 million players, and despite problems with cheating and some invasive errors, continues to attract a massive audience on Twitch and YouTube.
However, streaming giant Dr Disrespect has suggested that Warzone’s success may actually hinder Call of Duty League and this year̵
During a YouTube feed from March 26, Doc explained how Warzone has influenced his desire to play Black Ops Cold War, and how this may affect the engagement and viewers of the professional Call of Duty League.
When asked by a viewer if he plays Black Ops Cold War multiplayer, Doc replied: “It’s pretty weird. Usually when a new Call of Duty comes, you just move on to the next one … it’s weird because it’s not a bad game. It’s just not enough for me to leave Warzone, easily and simply. The experience of Warzone, compared to playing Cold War multiplayer, I get much more pleasure from playing this [WZ]. ”

“It puts the CoD league in an interesting position in terms of viewership and speed towards their game,” he continued. “I think it’s pretty important that no matter what change there is for Warzone, that it does something to capture the Cold War so they can link the two together, so there’s more coherence there.”
The change Doc refers to is the long-awaited Nuke event, the event many believe will lead to a new map in the Ural Mountains, which will permanently replace Verdansk.
No matter what changes have been made, the two-time believes that it needs a clear focus on Black Ops Cold War to ensure that Treyarch’s 2020 title is not completely forgotten in favor of Warzone.
