eUnited aBeZy clears the air after being called out by NICKMERCS

After 100 Thieves streamer Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff slammed eUnited Call of Duty pro Tyler ‘aBeZy’ Pharris during a lengthy Twitch rant, aBeZy has taken to Twitter to share his side of things.

During NICKMERCS’ rant, he didn’t hold back anything at all, saying that aBeZy is “a fucking asshole” and that “he’s always been a prick.”

A few hours after NICKMERCS’ remarks went viral on social media, aBeZy has posted a lengthy explanation on Twitter to try and shed light on the situation.

The eUnited player starts things off by saying that he has “absolutely nothing against [NICKMERCS] or the MFAM.”

aBeZy then clarifies that he isn’t quite sure why NICKMERCS said what he said since he says the two have “literally never played anything […] or even had a conversation.”

While aBeZy doesn’t know what could have caused NICKMERCS to dislike him, he thinks that it could be related to a series of Call of Duty 3v3 wager matches the two had a couple years ago.

After NICKMERCS and his crew had beaten aBeZy in a $100 challenge, the two agreed to a follow-up match, but aBeZy ended up being a bit hesitant since they didn’t have a third player they felt comfortable playing with.

They responded and said they were down but then Blazt hit us up a couple minutes later while the MFAM was still playing a best of 3 wager on stream so we told them we would rather play with him to make it a fair match. At the time, Nick, Nio, and Ampz were a very good team so Blazt was the best option for a fair match. Me and Pac then hear that Nick is saying on stream that “he knows what we are trying to do and they aren’t stupid.” He was basically trying to say we were trying to scumbag him which honestly made zero sense because like I said.. they just beat us in a $100 challenge a day or two before.

aBeZy clarified that they weren’t up to anything nefarious and simply didn’t feel comfortable playing with their original third player.

He goes on to say that he was “aggravated” after waiting two hours to play with NICKMERCS and that he “disagreed with what they did and that was that.”

The player then concludes by saying that “the past is in the past and I have no kind of hatred towards [NICKMERCS] or the MFAM.”

NICKMERCS has yet to respond to aBeZy’s statements.

2021 CDL Challengers info announced: Scouting & Elite Series

The Call of Duty League has announced all-new details for upcoming 2021 Challengers events, and there will be even more ways for up and coming players to show their stuff.

Call of Duty Challengers is the official “path to pro” circuit for amateur CoD esports players around the world, and there are two brand new events being added to the circuit in 2021 – the Scouting Series and Challengers Elite.

The 2019 season wrapped up in August with the $500k finals crowning the top teams in North America, Europe and Asia. Once again, players looking for their big break are eagerly awaiting the next opportunity.

They won’t have to be patient for very long either, with the first new Challengers event kicking off just a couple of weeks at the time of writing, in early December with the Scouting Series.

This Series will bring together CDL coaches to draft their own squads from one big pool of all the players that secure an invite. These teams will be split up into EU and NA competitions and will play against teams from their region over the course of the four-day tournament.

Elite is the second new event, and will put the top amateur teams from Challengers into an exclusive bracket to battle it out, sometime “over the course of the 2021 Season.”

Challengers Cups were first introduced in 2019 and will be returning in 2021 as well. These will be standalone tournaments  players across North America, Europe, and the Asia Pacific region. Through the Cups and the competitive Ladder, players can earn Challengers points which are used to qualify and seed teams for various events throughout the season.
