Professional players Tommy “ZooMaa” Paparatto and Matthew “Skrapz” Marshall shocked tens of thousands of viewers on a Twitch dating show, as they ‘kept it real’ with the four girls.

The dating show on Twitch has been gaining popularity in recent months, organized and broadcasted by streamer ‘RajjPatell’, they invite four female streamers on, who must pick their favorite from a selection of potential suitors.

The most recent episode, on August 28, had professional gamers on, including top CoD players ZooMaa and Skrapz, as well as Tempo Storm owner Reynad.

British player Skrapz was up first, and his thick English accent immediately threw the girls off, but he wasn’t dissuaded. However, it would be fair to say Skrapz didn’t exactly keep it PG.

He called out the girls for being gold diggers, more interested in money and fame than looks and personality.

However, Skrapz didn’t pretend that he was any better, admitting he had simple tastes in his potential matches too.

Finally, Skrapz calls the girls out for acting too innocent, explaining in no uncertain terms what he thinks goes down when they take a partner back to their place – and it doesn’t involve video games.

Things really took off though when ZooMaa made his appearance on the show – and he had a few things to say about the girls, who he didn’t think were being very nice to Skrapz.

It was clear right from the start that ZooMaa had little interest in actually getting to know the girls, and was there purely for the entertainment and to defend his friend.

He later turned his attention to streamer and model Savana, accusing her of being ‘fake’, and only on the show for attention, rather than actually for the purpose of dating or giving dating advice.

Before leaving the show (or being voted off), ZooMaa also made reference to one of his common in game pseudonyms – ‘the stallion’.

It was an eventful evening for the organizers, who did manage to get their highest peak viewership for the show yet, at over 16,000 concurrent as ZooMaa went on his tirade.

Some viewers were asking that eUnited player James “Clayster” Eubanks be invited on for next show, given his history with one of the streamers, and the host, Rajj, seemed open to the idea.

The Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Beta is finally live on PlayStation 4 for those who pre-ordered digitally, and some people have been noticing that Treyarch sneakily implemented a feature meant to counter reverse boosting that wasn’t in the Alpha.

According to Twitter user and CoD insider @_TomHenderson_ and verified by Dexerto, Treyarch has made players invulnerable to all damage for a few seconds when they spawn in. While the feature has yet to be given an official explanation, or even acknowledged by the devs, this was almost certainly done to combat reverse-boosting.

For those that don’t know, Call of Duty games have skill-based matchmaking, which means that players of similar skill-levels are matched together in order to make a more balanced game. Unfortunately, many don’t like this option because it can make the game a bit tedious and annoying.

Because of this, players “reverse boost”, which basically means they’ll “kill themselves” intentionally immediately when they spawn so that they can trick the game into thinking they are lower-skilled, which then puts them in a lower-skilled lobbies.

Now, fans will have to wait a few seconds in order to “kill themselves” after they respawn. While this won’t completely fix reverse boosting, it will make a bit more annoying for those who do it.

Players who immediately try and kill themselves when they spawn will find that they won’t be able to.

If they are only carrying one piece of lethal equipment and they immediately attempt to kill themselves, they will have wasted it and will have to go into battle without one until they die and respawn.

Simply waiting a few seconds will, of course, allow you to continue to reverse boost to your heart’s content. That being said, if Treyarch sees that reverse boosting is still rampant by the time the full game comes out, it wouldn’t be surprising if they end up implementing even more counter-measures in order to stop those players.
