Clayster reveals why he’s stopped getting “hype” during Call of Duty matches

Professional Call of Duty player James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks has revealed that he has been asked him to tone down his excitement during matches as it has a negative effect on the team.

Clayster has become well-known for his exuberant reactions in the aftermath of victories or incredible moments while playing Call of Duty, a habit which has divided fans of the game.

While many find Clayster’s excitement endearing, some believe that it can be portrayed as arrogance or as disrespectful to opposing players. It seems that this may not be an issue any longer though, as Eubanks revealed he has been asked to control himself during matches.

Clayster is well-known for wearing his emotions on his sleeve.

Clayster was hosting a CWL Fort Worth Championship Sunday watch party on his Twitch channel when he made the comments, mentioning that teammate Jordan ‘JKap’ Kaplan believed his outbursts did more harm than good for the team.

“In a talk we had, Kap said that the hype didn’t mesh with the team,” Eubanks told his viewers. “He thought that me getting hype and being so energetic wasn’t as beneficial for the team as me remaining calm and collected.

“I’ve gotten better about my hype over the years, I only really do it after a win or a big play. This whole event I was suppressing any hype motions I got. During the Envy match, I killed two guys with a Tempest, but I sat down, said my bad guys. 

“It’s whatever, I can control it. I’ve got to do what my team wants me to do. A lot of people like my hype, but my team wants me to do something else.”

While eUnited felt that Clayster’s lack of hype would help the team, it didn’t manifest into a high placing, as the squad finished in 13th-16th position in the tournament.

The team did pick up a victory over Team Reciprocity, but fell to heavy defeats against OpTic Gaming and Team Envy, before ultimately being eliminated by 100 Thieves.

Best Warzone kills against cheaters exploiting the Stim glitch

Taking matters into their own hands, some of Call of Duty: Warzone’s bravest players have, quite literally, gone out of their way to punish cheating exploiters who abuse the notorious Stim glitch.

As most Warzone fans have become familiar with by now, there is an unlimited Stim Shot glitch that pops into existence, gets patched out, and then returns every once in a while. The bug allows you to use an infinite amount of Stim Shots, enabling players to remain in the gas indefinitely and secure easy wins while those who play fairly die to the final circles.

Unfortunately, as time passes, more and more exploiters have become aware of the glitch and prone to abusing it. Fortunately, more and more players with competitive integrity have become aware of those exploiters and prone to exacting justice by punishing them.

While few things are more satisfying than a high-kill Warzone victory, one such thing is the cathartic sensation of a cheater being killed and therefore robbed of their illegitimate win. Highlighted by one of Warzone’s very best, Liam ‘Jukeyz’ James, here are the best kills against Stim glitch exploiters.

Unwilling to be denied their 100-kill victory, Jukeyz and his team got set up with self-revives, gas masks, and a UAV to go seek out and eliminate the exploiter in their lobby. Driving directly into the toxic gas, Jukeyz is able to hop out (as his driver is downed by the green cloud) and delete the prone cheater.

And Jukeyz isn’t alone in obliterating these exploiters. Reddit’s ‘thebigeasy31’ decimated the hubris of one such exploiter, who brashly thought they could start Stim glitching earlier in the game with a Most Wanted contact on his head. Instead, bigeasy gave him a bullet to the head.

And last, but certainly not least, Reddit’s ‘Millertime166’ took it upon themself to pull off a one-man vigilante act by seeking out a Stim glitcher on Rebirth Island. Heading into the gas, copping a Gas Mask, and getting into a vehicle, Millertime used their last remaining HP to kill off a silly cheater who was hidden behind a wall.

While the Stim glitch was supposed to have been removed during the January 13 patch, some believe it persists, albeit in a more limited fashion. Nevertheless, most expect it could possibly make a return at some point.

If it does come back, these players prove that the game’s developers are not the only ones who can counteract cheaters. Like those who killed off exploiters who were abusing the Promenade truck glitch, Verdansk’s finest have begun carrying out their own brand of justice.
