Nick Mercs reacts to Dr. Disrespect banning
As the most watched streamer for Call of Duty, Nick Mercs hasn’t said anything which would position him either for or against the banning. Instead, he seems to be reacting to the overall feeling of chaos that comes from banning such a prominent member of the streamer community.
An overwhelming silence
Aside from the above mentioned streamers, many streamers have been quiet on twitter about the ban. Given how vitriolic many gaming communities can be, this strikes me as an intelligent decision. Taking a side early can cause problems down the line, and taking any position that angers your fan base could spell career death.
But while streamers can be quiet, fans certainly are not.
It seems like the only smart thing to do right now is wait until more information goes public.Published 28 Jun 2020, 21:10 IST
