100 Thieves’ CoD player Kenny ‘Kenny’ Williams explained how Matt ‘Nadeshot’ Haag recruited him to the roster, and why there’s no better person to run the organization.

Kenny moved from Team Kaliber to 100 Thieves following their second place finish at the 2018 World Championship, individually regarded as the best SMG player of the season.

His performances throughout what was his breakout season in the CWL earned him a call up from Nadeshot, who it had been known was looking to form a Call of Duty roster.

Kenny revealed on episode 4 of the CoD Blast podcast that almost immediately after the world championship, while he was still at the airport, he received a message from Nadeshot directly offering him a spot.

As a former professional CoD player, Nadeshot will know exactly what current players want from an organization, as Kenny explains “he just made me feel welcome, everything I wanted help with, like my brand, he wants to help me with that.”

Specifically, it wasn’t about money and salary, which Kenny says was a convincing factor for him, with the focus of conversation on his brand and how it could develop under 100 Thieves.

He also discusses what the full five man roster said to each other when they first came together, which included “we are the god squad.”

However, he was more cautious to lay out any big claims about the rosters potential as the next ‘dynasty’ in Call of Duty, but knows that if they “click”, they will be the best.

With 100 Thieves now also having the backing of Drake and Scooter Braun, in addition to investment from Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert, the organization is well poised to be a fan favorite, especially in Call of Duty, given Nadeshot’s past.

Another Warzone streamer shows hacks live on Twitch stream

Like clockwork, another Call of Duty: Warzone streamer has exposed their in-game cheats while playing live on Twitch. And this time, the cheater did not take kindly to chat quickly trashing him.

Hackers have been the biggest issue in Warzone; with cross-play enabled between PC and console players for the first time, the CoD fanbase has been exposed to even greater levels of cheating than ever before.

Going by ‘festation’ on Twitch, yet another streamer has outed themselves as a cheater on the platform by displaying their hacks while broadcasting live. In this case, they were quickly called out on Twitter and in the chat, leading to deleted clips and a switch to Black Ops 4 gameplay.

With Twitch chat flaming him for being bad at Modern Warfare and Warzone even with hacks activated, festation proceeded to let them know that he is elite on Black Ops 4 and challenged them to 1v1 matches. He then switched over to the earlier CoD title, but not before his hacks were clipped and shipped across the internet.

As shown in the clip, downloaded before its inevitable deletion on Twitch, festation is rolling around Verdansk while knowing precisely where every single opponent is on the map. He can see players, color-coded based on their health, with a structural indication of their character model’s movement through walls.

Similarly, he also has indicators for guns, cash, and armor found throughout the map. Unfortunately for him, that sort of unfair game awareness doesn’t equate to the IQ that matters, as he is easily blown up by a Cluster Strike at one point.

This is likely why Twitch chat laid into him even more, as fans typically shame hackers for remaining inferior at the game even when gaining an unfair advantage. 

Part of the reason why he gained a decent amount of viewers on Twitch was likely because of getting exposed on Twitter. Concerned fans of the battle royale went so far as to reply to a random TimTheTatMan tweet to try and bring attention to the blatant hacking.

In response, new viewers could enjoy seeing the cheater switch over to BO4 and continue to struggle while throwing out challenges to his detractors in chat: “Get on Black Ops 4, watch me smack any of you on Hardpoint.”

This is far from the first time a streamer has been exposed for cheating. In the past, one accidentally displayed his hacks while another purposefully tried to show his off. As of yet, neither Infinity Ward nor Twitch appear to have banned festation, but repercussions seem likely following this exposure.
