Brian ‘Saint’ Baroska, former coach of eUnited’s professional Call of Duty team, was driven to tears when James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks donated $500 to his stream.

On April 2, just hours after eUnited had officially announced that they had replaced him as their CoD coach, Saint was streaming some Black Ops 4 with a donation goal for his rent and student loans.

Seemingly out of nowhere, Clayster donated $500 to the stream, along with the message: “Love you bro. You’re still the A1 homie forever my guy.”

Despite his best efforts, Saint was unable to fight the tears that were spilling out, as he thanked his former player for his generosity.

“One of the worst days of my life was made so much better by you guys,” he later tweeted. “Thank you so much for the support and a big thank you to Clayster for the $500 donation, as well as everyone else who donated today. Truly don’t have the words that can express how I feel right now.”

Why did Saint get so emotional after the donation?

April 2 was a very difficult day for Saint, who had found out earlier that he had been replaced as the coach of eUnited’s pro CoD team in favor of the recently-retired Brice ‘Faccento’ Faccento.

With financial burdens now pressing upon his shoulders more than ever, Clayster’s massive donation, as well as the support shown by the rest of the viewers, really helped Saint deal with what he called “one of the worst days” of his life. 

Why did Clayster donate $500 to Saint?

It appears that the decision to part ways with Saint was purely for business and professional reasons, and not personal ones, as most of the eUnited players still hold their former coach in high regard, especially Clayster.

Apart from the $500 donation, Clayster also tweeted out all of eUnited’s accomplishments since Saint had joined them, as a way to promote him to any other teams in the CWL Pro League that were looking for a coach.

What’s next for Saint moving forward?

Obviously, Saint’s ideal scenario moving forward would probably be to join another CWL Pro League team as their coach as soon as possible. If not, he has made it clear that he’s open to any available positions in esports, even on the business and administration side of things.

Considering his strong resume as a coach, and the fact the he has both extensive experience in esports as well as a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration, it would seem as though Saint could find another job in the industry sooner rather than later.

Hilarious Black Ops Cold War bug literally breaks Fireteam Dirty Bomb

A game-breaking Black Ops Cold War bug is suspending players above the map on Fireteam Dirty Bomb, rendering them useless for the entire match.

As with any new release, Black Ops Cold War has had its fair share of bugs and glitches. From players falling through the map to a permanent thermal overlay, its obvious Treyarch overlooked a few elements of the game before releasing the title.

However, if a bug is not game-breaking, players will usually laugh it off and let it go. It’s only when a glitch renders players completely useless that a bug starts to become more frustrating than funny.

Well, that’s exactly the type of bug some players are experiencing on Fireteam Dirty Bomb and it’s fair to say they’re not pleased about it.

Game-breaking bug suspends players above the map

A video posted to the Black Ops Cold War subreddit reveals a game-breaking bug occurring on Fireteam Dirty Bomb. The glitch suspends the players above the map for the entire match with them unable to move or participate.

On top of this, it appears the entire game mode is broken with teams being bigger than they’re are supposed to be and textures not loading in.

As you can see, the players are left floating above the map and are audibly frustrated at the issue. One of them even states: “I’d genuinely be surprised if they even had playtesters for this game.”

It’s worth noting the players can scope down onto the map below but they’re completely locked in place. Attempting to run will trigger the animation but no movement will occur.

Glitches can be entertaining in certain titles, especially when they do not heavily impact the gameplay experience. However, in competitive games like Call of Duty, a game-breaking bug can be extremely frustrating.

Fingers crossed Treyarch get this bug fixed as soon as possible so players don’t have to continue spectating the game from above the map.
