It seems that Dr DisRespect and Zlaner have moved on from their previous performances at the Vikkstar Warzone Showdown. Previously, The Two-Time did not have much luck in the Winners' or Losers' Bracket. However, this week, Doc and Zlaner have turned things around for the better.
Recently, the Champions Club witnessed Dr DisRespect joining forces with CouRage JD to participate in the Game Fuel Game Nights Triple Threat Challenge. During the stream, Doc reported the shabby state of the upload speed, and also tweeted it out before the tournament.
Dr DisRespect and Zlaner finally come good at Vikkstar Warzone Showdown
But Dr DisRespect doesn't let adversity stop him from putting on a good show. And that is precisely what they did in the Vikkstar Warzone Showdown.
In the early rounds, Dr DisRespect and Zlaner were matched up against Jaxstyle and A7WayZ. Doc started off the stream, talking about how he needed to support Zlaner.
Following the recent tournament gameplay, it was pretty clear that Zlaner is much more composed when playin Warzone. Doc addressed that by mentioning how he needed to support Zlaner while he was taking on an entire squad.
However, Dr DisRespect and Zlaner were beaten by StoneMountain and King Richard. Next up, they were matched against TeePee and Bobby Poff.
This is where Doc and Z finally started gaining momentum. The latter was almost in a frenzy while dropping squad wipes, which surprised his teammate as well. There were matches where Zlaner picked up 11 kills, and Doc could only manage five.
Regardless, they progressed to the next round smoothly and faced FaZe Apex and Mutex. We have already spoken about how internet issues and the Twitch ban have plagued Dr DisRespect's overall performance in this tournament..
There were situations where Zlaner had to fight alone while Doc couldn't clear his Gulag round. But their partnership this week showed how much they want to win this tourney.
So close, yet so far
Dr DisRespect and Zlaner were a class apart in the matches against Symfuhny and Bloo. It is the first time the duo has reached so far into the tournament, which was indeed quite remarkable for the Champions Club.
Loser Round 5 was the shot at redemption for the Two-Time and Zlaner. They were up against HusKerrs and Average JoeWo, and this match was going to set them up to face the Winners' Bracket finalists.
Dr DisRespect did his best to support Zlaner, and even apologized for his performance in the Gulag.
Later on, Doc mentioned that they had a weird moment when an entire squad baited them at a buy station. Zlaner tried to purchase Dr DisRespect back in the match, but it became impossible with the incoming gas cloud.
Indeed this was a so close yet so far moment for Doc, as they lost by just one elimination in the last match.
Despite all the hardships, Dr DisRespect is continuing to perform at the highest level. Hopefully, next week, Doc and Zlaner will finally take their rightful place as champions.Published 25 Sep 2020, 21:40 IST
