According to Doc, NICKMERCS is a “great representation” of streamers and applauded him for getting his own skin in CoD to begin with.
“That’s a tough one. For what again?” he said. “So, what I gotta do, what we gotta do, is uninstall the game number one. Don’t be mistaken, this year’s Call of Duty is the worst in its franchise, but that decision by CoD’s PR marketing team, I’ll tell you right now, that’s a tough one to digest.”
“That’s where I’m at. That’s an embarrassing one, man,” the banned Twitch streamer sighed.
“That’s one thing. I’ll talk awards, we’ll talk sports. These are the topics we’ll talk about, but one thing we won’t talk about is politics. These people online, they’re extreme one way and the other way. We don’t have time. We’re here to put on a show.”
Overall, it seems that there is growing dissatisfaction among players with the direction of CoD and the decisions being made by the developers. This dissatisfaction has led to numerous players, including Doc, choosing to uninstall the game. The recent removal of the NICKMERCS skin appears to have been a tipping point for many players.
