After playing many hours of Elden Ring himself, YouTube streamer Dr Disrespect thinks he has come up with an idea for an Elden Ring tournament.

p>FromSoftware has made some impressive games that have been well received by gamers over the years. With that being said, it seems as though its most recent title, Elden Ring, could be the game studio's most popular title to date. Introducing an open world called the Lands Between, the game gives players an enormous amount of freedom to explore. As numerous players continue to play Elden Ring, YouTube streamer Dr Disrespect has come up with an idea to keep the game relevant moving forward.

Like many other high-profile content creators, Dr Disrespect was swept up in the Elden Ring craze following its release. At one point, the streamer even proclaimed that he was possibly the best Elden Ring player in the world. While the Doc has started to play other games again, such as Fortnite, he apparently still has FromSoftware's latest title on the brain.

During a recent live stream from April 1, Dr Disrespect discussed the potential of an Elden Ring tournament after a viewer in his chat proposed the idea. The Doc was a bit skeptical of the idea at first, stating that it could be hard to pull off unless there was “full customization.” However, he began to like the concept and began to think of the possibilities of making a tournament built around speedrunning the game. “I guess I could see an Elden Ring tournament working,” he admitted.

Dr Disrespect went on to speculate what a potential Elden Ring speedrunning tournament could look like. According to the YouTube streamer, he envisioned the tournament tasking players to complete a certain set of objectives, such as defeating a selection of bosses. In addition, he claimed one of the keys to the success of the tournament would be to keep it random for the competitors. “No one will know what the route is until the day of the tournament,” he said.

Despite these exciting prospects, Dr Disrespect acknowledged that there would be some challenges to overcome to make an event like this work. He noted that it could be difficult to determine a winner. According to the Doc, having the winner be the one that achieves the highest level might not work as some might “cheese” the system.

Time will tell if Dr Disrespect or another streamer decides to attempt an Elden Ring tournament in the coming days. It would be interesting to see the number of viewers an event like that would garner. Given the popularity of Elden Ring and Dr Disrespect, the odds are good that a speedrunning tournament would be quite popular. However, it should be noted that the Doc has been busy of late trying to promote his own AAA game studio known as Midnight Society.

Elden Ring is out now for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
