Twitch star Dimitri ‘Greekgodx’ Antonatos raged after a baffling glitch led to his hilarious demise in Call of Duty: Warzone. The Team SoloMid personality hit out at the battle royale calling it a “f**king dumb game.”

Call of Duty debuted its second entry in the battle royale genre with the release of Warzone on March 10. The free-to-play title has so far dominated on Twitch, as viewers flock to watch their favorite personalities jump into the FPS.

However during his March 18 broadcast, Greekgodx found his match coming to an abrupt end in the most ridiculous way possible. When it came down to the streamer facing off against an in-game crate, the box ended up winning.

Greekgodx rages as Warzone glitch ruins match

The streamer was in the middle of playing the battle royale when he was finally able to call in his loadout – a feature where players can purchase pre-determined weapons and have them dropped into the match.

Excited, he hopped across the roof of a building and deployed his parachute to get to the crate he had summoned in. However things quickly went south when he slid into the side of the box and died.

“WHAT!? WHAAAAAT!?” he screamed into his camera. Stunned and seething with anger, he then exited out the match and exclaimed “f**king dumb game, dude!”

While crates can kill if they land on top of a player, it appears the game glitched and mistook his slide into the side of it as the same thing. Frustrated he told his chat, “Just about to get my f**king loadout!”

Greek didn’t stay angry for very long, and started to laugh when he read messages in his chat aloud. “Died to a box. It glitched. The loadout killed you. Lost to a box!” he read.

Laughing, he exclaimed, “Ahhh dude! I got Greekboxed, man. F**k! We got f**ing Greekboxed, dude!” The TSM personality showed his sense of humor, and continued to make light of the situation.

Warzone continues to provide viewers with ridiculous moments, and Greek’s box death is no exception. While it seemed to be a glitch, he took the whole thing in stride after the fact and found the humor in it.

The streaming star continues to kill it, having a big year on Twitch in 2019 and amassing over a million followers to his channel.

Nadeshot clarifies SBMM argument in Black Ops Cold War rant

Update (December 2 – 6:00 PM PT): Nadeshot has since followed up on his Skill-Based Matchmaking rant, addressing how it’s easy to lose your temper while grinding for specific weapon camo challenges.

“SBMM is a topic of discussion that has a lot of nuances,” he said in a December 2 follow-up tweet. “What I really want to clarify once and for all… I don’t have a fear of playing players as good as me. I don’t disagree with the idea of playing against players as good as me. All I’m asking for is that people see the level of skill I’m playing at.”

Obviously, a ranked playlist of sorts has been requested to no end in the community. While the feature has been subtly confirmed, it’s still yet to enter the game. Therefore, the only form of matchmaking is standard public games, which happen to have SBMM cranked all the way up.

“If I’m going up against six starting players in the Call of Duty League, I want a rank to reflect that. I understand why SBMM is a necessity, I just don’t agree with the way it’s presented. Right now it’s ambiguous, you never really know who you’re up against and the level of skill they’re at.”

The original story is as follows.

Skill-based matchmaking has been a major complaint from top Call of Duty players for years now, and 100 Thieves CEO and former pro player Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag has finally snapped, going on a rant against SBMM in the new Black Ops Cold War.

Nadeshot has never made it a secret that he, alongside a huge number of Call of Duty players, is anti-SBMM.

Though the sentiment makes sense — pit players of equal skill against one another — in practice, many players aren’t happy with it and want to see it removed or at least tuned down.

Nadeshot clearly falls into that category, and let his opinion be known during a December 1 stream while playing on the latest edition of Nuketown, Nuketown ‘84.

Black Ops Cold War has been welcomed with mixed reviews, but SBMM has been a major sticking point.

As you can tell immediately from the scoreline alone and the carnage unfolding around him, the match is an intense one, and he wasn’t impressed.

He said: “It’s time to lower the skill-based matchmaking. This is not fun. I know we want the kids that have never played Call of Duty to be in a safe space, but please stop alienating the people that have been playing your game for over a decade.”

That wasn’t all, though, as Haag continued to complain as he struggled to make much of an impact on the game. “This is not an enjoyable experience,” he said. “Especially trying to get the challenges done on these weapons… Everyone’s got a scorestreak because it’s participation and not skill.”

Both the SBMM and scorestreak complaints have been popular ones for Black Ops Cold War players, and the sentiment seems to be echoed from the top down.

Whether Activision or Treyarch make changes to either issue remains to be seen, but we might not see Nadeshot streaming Black Ops Cold War for too much longer at this rate.
