Popular Twitch streamer Dimitri ‘GreekgodX’ Antonatos is the latest streamer to call out 100 Thieves founder Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag for his Warzone skills, saying that the former CoD pro is “trash.”

Warzone released on March 10 and since then has become one of the most popular games among the top streamers, with players from multiple titles descending upon Verdansk to try and get a win.

Since release, Nadeshot has been the butt of several jokes – including NICKMERCS roasting him after Dr Disrespect nearly reunited them – and now Greek adds his name to the list of attackers.

Greek recently signed to esports organization TSM as a content creator.

Shortly after landing, Greek was talking to his chat and was brutally honest with them, giving himself an appraisal while making digs at the former OpTic Gaming star.

“To be honest, I don’t think I ever will be good at this game,” he said. “But I know damn well I’m better than Nadeshot. That guy is trash. With a capital T.”

He added that he would 1v1 Nade “any day” and would “destroy him in the Gulag” – the 1v1 spot players head to after their first death in the game.

It’s not quite clear why Greekgod decided to come at Nadeshot like that, but it seems to all be in good fun with no malice behind it.

Perhaps he was inspired by Dr Disrespect’s viral clip, mocking Nadeshot’s gameplay as Fortnite pro Cloak carried the team.

With the rise of Warzone tournaments being announced, including those from the likes of 100 Thieves and BoomTV, it’s possible that we see the two go head-to-head at some point in the future.

Then, we’ll see who’s really the better of the two – and maybe Nadeshot could demand some more respect be put on his name. He is a multiple-time Call of Duty champion, after all.

CDL Commissioner confirms Warzone is part of the league’s competitive plans.

The Call of Duty League’s commissioner, Johanna Faries, has confirmed that Warzone is part of the league’s competitive plans and will be featured in a more “structured” integration moving forward.

Activision’s unprecedented success in 2020 could not have been achieved without Warzone. While Infinity Ward’s Modern Warfare, the Activision-Blizzard franchised CDL, and Treyarch’s Black Ops Cold War have all been their own successes — Warzone is more than a cherry on top.

Regularly near the heights of Twitch’s viewership, the CoD battle royale has amassed both a huge casual community and more dedicated fans committed to watching tournament play. As such, it’s unsurprising that the CDL wants to do more than the casual Warzone content it created in the inaugural season.

That content typically spanned getting pro players, coaches, and analysts involved in custom matches on Verdansk. While entertaining, Faries has revealed that the league has much more competitive plans in store for the battle royale.

In an interview with ScreenRant, Faries, who heads both the CDL and Overwatch League, expressed that Warzone will be getting more properly integrated into the CDL’s plans: “There are [plans to bring Warzone to Call of Duty League], and we’re excited to announce those plans in the coming weeks and months.”

The Head of Leagues continued, contrasting these new plans with the casual content of the inaugural season and confirming that future integration will be much more esports-focused: “We did bring in Warzone related content with our pros last season, but we’ve taken the off-season to think bigger about what a more structured investment could look like. There are really exciting things to come as early as this season.”

The CDL kicked off to a boisterous start in its inaugural season.

As mentioned earlier, the CDL’s Warzone content in 2020 was primarily casual. Weekend custom lobbies created some fun clips and moments, but overall didn’t have quite the drawing power of Warzone’s more legitimate esport events.

We’ve seen former CDL bench players grow into massive Warzone careers, such as the London Royal Ravens’ Rhys ‘Rated’ Price as well as Charlie ‘MuTeX’ Saouma and Thomas ‘Tommey’ Trewren formerly of the Dallas Empire. 

The league obviously has the talent for appealing Warzone competition, so fans will be antsy to find out exactly what kind of “structured” integration may be coming in the future.
