eUnited Call of Duty professional Jordan ‘JKap’ Kaplan has claimed that his ex-teammate James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks fakes his hype and that it’s “not genuine”.

JKap and Clayster have been involved in a fairly public feud since the decision was made by eUnited to move JKap to a substitute role, in place of Chris ‘Simp’ Lehr. This came after a disappointing top 16 finish at CWL Fort Worth.

Following the announcement of this change, speculation arose regarding how influential Clayster was in forcing the move, with many suggesting that he was largely responsible, while of course it was a team decision.

JKap went on to post a number of insulting tweets, referring to Clayster as “the most arrogant and self-centred person” he’s ever met. This prompted Clayster to respond in a YouTube video, talking about CWL Fort Worth and eUnited’s roster changes.

The comments about Clayster faking hype were made by Kaplan when he appeared on CoD analyst and ex-pro Anthony ‘NAMELESS’ Wheeler’s YouTube podcast. At around the 9:00 minute mark, Kaplan says that he believes a lot of Clayster’s hype is “manufactured for the camera” and that it’s not genuine.

He goes on to say that Clayster “screams after like, random map wins against random teams” and that, whilst he does not want to speak for other people, ex-teammates of Clayster’s agree with what Kaplan is saying.

JKap states that this illegitimate hype from Clayster is unhelpful when trying to play with him, and that whilst it’s not a massive issue, it’s something Kap tries to avoid in teammates. He argues this fake hype feeds into a shift in Clayster’s attitude towards competitive CoD, that has occurred since Clayster won his world championship in Advanced Warfare – alongside JKap.

“I think he’s started doing it since AW,” said JKap. “Some time since then, he stopped playing for the win, and started playing for the fans”.

JKap goes even further with his criticisms towards the end of the interview, stating that fans of Clayster are “pound for pound, more toxic” than OpTic Gaming fans. 

It remains to be seen how Clayster will respond to this, or whether this will spell an end to the two world champions’ disagreements.

Rapper turned popular Twitch streamer Soulja Boy went on a hilarious rant-like victory speech after he dominated the opposition in a match of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.

After loading into the Crossroads map for a little free for all action, the rapper took no prisoners, destroying the other members of the lobby with ease.

By the time Soulja landed the final kill bringing his score to 30, the player back in second place had a mere 22 making the streamer’s performance even crazier.

Soulja himself was over the moon with his play and boasted his insane skills in an epic speech where he shouted at the top of his lungs.

Soulja Boy pops off in Cold War
Soulja Boy was hyped after winning the round.

“Let’s f**king go! I’m in beast mode! I’m at f**king beast mode!” he screamed in glory. “Stop playin’ with me! That’s what I do! When I get in that mode!”

As the 30-year-old continued his hyped speech, the “Best Play” was being shown in the background documenting the streamer’s series of frags.

Throughout the clip, Soulja manages to pick up three kills in quick succession padding his lead. Amusingly, some in his chat thought that the game was too dominant and he was playing against AI.

“Of course when a [person] winning they’re going to say it’s bots!” he smirked. “I’m so motherf***ing raw I make these [people] look like bots! Look up them Gamer Tags and DM then and ask them if they’re bots!”

Needless to say, Soulja Boy’s confidence was really something else and being able to back up the trash talk with big wins just makes it so much sweeter.

Of course, if you want, you can use Soulja’s loadout in your own games and see if it makes you pop off as hard as him. For his primary weapon, he opts for the MP5 with the Duckbill Choke, Millstop Reflex, +22 extended, 6RND Tube and Steady Aim Laser.

Soulja Boy was making opponents look like bots from the campaign.

His secondary is the Hauer 77. For equipment, he opts for stuns, semtex, and proximity mine. Finally, for perks and Wildcard he uses Paranoia, Gearhead and Ghost equipped with Danger Close.

Give it a shot and see if you can get on Soulja Boy’s level.
