Whilst playing Call of Duty: Blackout, you may run into some familiar faces. However, during a recent game, FaZe Clan’s professional player Dillon ‘Attach’ Price was shocked to run into a fellow pro.
Dropping into a wager game alongside Splyce professional player Lamar ‘Accuracy’ Abedi, Attach unknowingly bumps into Luminosity Gaming’s Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper who is playing in his own Blackout tournament final.
Attach, who is streaming the game, has a one gifted Twitch subscription worth $5 on the line with Accuracy but that pales in comparison to what he cost FormaL.
Attach has been grinding hard in Black Ops 4.
After landing on the roof of the stable buildings at Farm, Attach quickly jumped through a window and searched for whatever loot he can get his hands on. He spotted the other player in his building – without knowing that it is Formal – picked up a Maddox assault rifle lying to his right and quickly set about spraying down his fellow pro.
Despite Formal’s PSN account name popping up on screen, Attach didn’t quite realise who he had finished off until his his wager rival for his own game, Accuracy, called out: “Oh, that kid got smoked! That was Matt! That was Formal, you just killed Formal.”
After a quick moment of realisation, Attach says, “Matt got smoked!,” before bursting out into a fit of laughter. The FaZe pro then connected with FormaL over Mumble. Amongst his laughter, Attach apologised to his fallen comrade before continuing on with his game.
Tasked with drafting a team for a Call of Duty: Warzone tournament, NICKMERCS went through some of the game’s biggest names, ranking them while determining who he would most want to duo with.
To start Davis ‘Hitch’ Edwards’ $10,000 “Cracked Creators” Warzone tournament, 16 creators were tasked with drafting their duo from 16 “cracked” streamers.
As one of the creators allowed to select their tandem, NICKMERCS sifted through 16 of the game’s best to determine who he would prefer to play with.
Ultimately, the FaZe streamer ended up putting his decision to a poll among his fans. But, before doing so, he originally went through all 16 and gave thoughts on how each of them ranks. And the options were varied, but all shared one thing in common: talent.
With professional Call of Duty League players like Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper and Seth ‘Scump’ Abner available, as well as Warzone streamers like Aydan and HusKerrs, the candidates were excellent. Still, NICKMERCS sifted through and broke down who he truly believes ranks as the battle royale’s best.
Segment begins at 00:20:45.
NICKMERCS starts by going through the list and just expressing what an absolute struggle it will be to pick from such a talented crop of peers: “Oh, it’s going to be so hard to pick man … No matter what, everybody that I would pick from is cracked.” But, after going through and complimenting practically everybody, he starts the process of elimination.
Since Nick chooses second after DrDisrespect, he immediately eliminates Zlaner as Doc’s likely first pick. Then, he eliminates JoeWo with two simple reasons: “I’ve never played with him and every time I play against him, I beat that little ass.”
Then, BobbyPoff is gone: “BobbyPoff, I love the guy, but take him off the list.” And the “Scarf Lord” is followed quickly by the Chicago Huntsmen’s FormaL and Scump: “Love ‘em, love ‘em. But I feel like there’s better BR players.” After that, things start getting complicated.

Similar to Zlaner, Nick decides to sacrifice Merk so that he can play with his longtime duo, Maven. Then, recognizing that all of these remaining players are absolute menaces on Verdansk, he goes with two simple metrics to determine his personal preference. He immediately prioritizes controller players and the highest earners in Warzone tournaments.
That eliminates stars like HusKerrs and Symfuhny for their mouse and keyboard usage, while also eliminating Crowder and DougIsRaw for their low earnings. Finally, he eliminates Jukeyz because of his struggles understanding the UK maestro’s accent and decides to put the decision to a poll.
Ultimately, it’s between Aydan and Tommey, with Cloakzy popping on to let NICKMERCS know that Aydan’s been playing some Fortnite recently. That leaves the FaZe star choosing Tommey, noting that “he’s got great communication, phenomenal player, guaranteed to get some chopper kills off rip.”
Despite going through full rankings for his options and landing upon an excellent duo, the decision-making process proved to be futile. NICKMERCS and Tommey could only end in the Top 12 for the tournament, while the easily dismissed BobbyPoff actually came in first place.
