FaZe Clan’s is Thomas ‘ZooMaa’ Paparatto has made a plea to the competitive Call of Duty community to “stop bitching” ahead of the release of Black Ops 4.

The professional player took to Twitter to say that he is fed up of seeing negative comments and wants people to “look at positives and enjoy the game.”

“So tired of the negativity in this community, the game is a lot of fun and it’s going to be a great year,” the FaZe man stated. “Don’t fucking ruin it.”

It wasn’t entirely clear what ZooMaa was referring to in his original Tweet because, as 100 Thieves owner Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag points out, most community members seem to be excited about both Black Ops 4 and Blackout.

But the 23-year-old explains that he has “actually seen a lot” of negativity, and states that “most of it is about 5v5 which we haven’t even played yet,” before concluding with “I also think the game is great and we’re in for a good year. Just want people to enjoy what we have going, tired of the same bullshit every year.”

The “5 vs 5 or 4 vs 4” debate has been raging throughout the Call of Duty esports community ever since the possibility of switching away from the classic 4 vs 4 gameplay was initially discussed.

While there has been no official word from Treyarch or the CWL, it is beginning to look more likely by the day that the change will indeed happen.

With opinions on the potential move being split, conversations about 5 vs 5 have often become heated, both on Twitter and Reddit.

ZooMaa is clearly of the opinion that Black Ops 4 will still be a great year for Call of Duty esports and also thinks the community should adopt a “don’t knock it until you’ve tried it” approach to the potential rule changes.
