Dr Disrespect and TSM Myth Roast Controller Players and Immediately Receive Backlash
The Call of Duty community had a war of words recently after content creators Herschel ‘Dr Disrespect’ Beahm IV and TSM’s Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani roasted controller players on Twitter. Numerous Call of Duty pros hit back at both content creators immediately, sparking off yet another mouse and keyboard versus controller debate. The drama between mouse and keyboard (MnK) and controller users is not new by any means and things have heated up a lot recently with Doc being vocal about aim assist. Here is a rundown of what ensued yesterday on Twitter and how 100 Thieves co-owner Matthew “Nadeshot” Haag eventually calmed the situation down.
Crimsix and Clayster hit back at Dr Disrespect and Myth
The drama started with Doc’s tweet which said “Without your aim assist, you ain’t nothin.” Myth re-tweeted and said that he would never put a controller player in his top ten for greatest FPS players of all time. Crimsix responded to Myth saying “With all due respect, s*** my d***.”
Clayster hit back asking everyone “why is everyone gettin so upset at some dudes opinion when that dudes only claim to videogame fame is he figured out building first on Fortnite?” While most people simply hit back at Myth and Doc for their statements, Nadeshot tried to show them reason.
He told Myth, “Your opinion went out the door when you slandered some of the best players in the world just because they play on controller. If you didn’t match up on mainstage against them, you don’t know what it takes. Plain and simple. On top of that, you haven’t been around long enough.”
Myth eventually took back what he said and tried to calm things down on his feed. The content creator said that he is not near qualified enough to spread “that kind of slander” and apologized. He talked about how Nadeshot made a perfect point and he can’t disagree with it.
Michael ‘Shroud’ Grzesiek also holds the opinion controller players should be separated from MnK players in competitive environments. Both input methods are ‘balanced’ within their own ecosystems, but with cross-play becoming the norm, people take issue with the current state of aim assist. Apex Legends developer, Respawn Entertainment is looking into the aim assist within their game. Aim assist nerfs are on Respawn’s radar following community outrage against the input method. But one thing is for certain, if cross-play becomes more prevalent and esports titles allow players to compete on any platform, the MnK vs controller debate will only grow hotter.
