The Dr. Disrespect and iFerg Feud

Dr. Disrespect and iFerg had a heated debate over the relevance of mobile gaming in the esports scene last year that sparked the feud between the two personalities.

Activision has decided to provide the stage for both celebrities this year in order to finally settle this year-long feud. 

While waiting for the event to go live, fans can follow iFerg and Dr. Disrespects’ banter towards each other on their official Twitter accounts.
