Dr DisRespect would delete all of the H1Z1 files and chalk the whole game up as a “learning experience” if he was put in charge of its development.
“I would delete everything on H1Z1, take it in as a learning experience, and make a way better game.”
One of the Doc’s viewers donated to the popular streamer to suggest that that he should be given “full reign” over Daybreak Game Company and “revive” H1Z1.
“Nah, I would delete everything on H1Z1,” the Twitch star responded. “I would look at all of the good stuff that came out of H1Z1, all of the bad stuff… Take it in as an experience, take it in as feedback, take it in as a learning experience if you will, and make a way better game.”
Dr DisRespect is known for playing battle royale games and used to stream H1Z1 on a regular basis. However, the Daybreak Game Company title has been left behind by other games in the genre over the last year.
Long gone are the days of over 100,000 people playing the game at the same time. Instead, the peak player count for the last 30 days sits at just over 6,000, according to steamcharts.
H1Z1 was one of the pioneers of the battle royale genre, but games like PUBG, Fortnite and even the soon-to-be-released Call of Duty: Blackout seem to have built upon what the likes of DayZ and H1Z1 introduced; creating a more polished final product.
The Doc seems to feel that revitalizing H1Z1 is an impossible mission but he doesn’t appear to be ruling out the possibility of the developers at Daybreak Games being able to use it as a platform to build a new, better version of it in the future.
