Following JKap’s contentious demotion from eUnited’s starting squad on March 19, CWL analyst Anthony ‘NAMELESS’ Wheeler invited JKap and Clayster to tell their sides of the story on his popular CoDCast podcast.
After a series of exchanges on Twitter, JKap posted a couple of tweets in which he went off on the eUnited captain, calling him arrogant, self-centered, and a horrible teammate.
“I was actually considering last night why I was so pissed at you in all this when realistically the decision to bench me was 100% Burns. And I came to the realization that I just don’t like you anymore because you are the most arrogant and self-centered person I’ve ever met.
Pair that with the fact that you’re consumed by trying to have all the fans like you (hence your quote about manipulating CoD reddit that I tweeted yesterday) and you’ve turned into an absolutely horrible teammate over the past few years since I last teamed with you in Advanced Warfare.”
Interestingly enough, Clayster responded to these tweets in a calm and collected manner, which is not what many would have expected from one of the more outspoken members of the competitive Call of Duty community.
“That’s cool dude,” he wrote. “You’re entitled to your opinion all you want. Good luck in whatever team you join.”

This pretty much sets in stone what most fans already suspected – that JKap will be on his way out of eUnited once the roster lock gets lifted on April 5.
Of course, the controversy first started when the mysterious Call of Duty insider known as the CoDBurner accused JKap of trying to “scumbag” Clayster and get him dropped from the eUnited roster.
Once JKap was dropped from the starting squad following their poor performance at CWL Fort Worth, he started expressing his frustrations on social media, even publicly suggesting a few times that Clayster had been the CoDBurner all along.
In fact, that was what led to this admittedly surprising barrage of insults, as those tweets came in reply of Clayster asking JKap to stop accusing him of being the CoDBurner.
According to JKap, the idea of dropping Clayster was not even his own: “And for the record, trying to drop you was no at all just me. Idea didn’t even cross my mind until I heard the others talking about it first.”
“Never said it was all you, never even thought that,” Clay replied. “I don’t believe that you ‘brainwashed’ people into it, not sure why you think I do.”
As for settling their dispute, Clayster once again took the high road and claimed that he had nothing against JKap.
Despite Clayster’s best efforts to calm the waters, it remains unclear for how long this roster controversy will continue to linger, especially if JKap has a difficult time find a suitable team in the next Rostermania period.
However, eUnited will definitely want to quickly get their minds back on what matters most, as their first week of cross-divisional matches at the CWL Pro League kick off on March 25.
