Competing in the CWL Pro League did not stop 100 Thieves‘ professional Call of Duty player Kenny ‘Kenny’ Williams from taking some shots at eUnited shortly after their recent coaching change.

eUnited make coaching change

On April 2, eUnited caught many fans by surprise when they announced that they had parted ways with their Call of Duty team coach Brian ‘Saint’ Baroska, who had been with the org for over a year.

Filling in his place will be former pro Brice ‘Faccento’ Faccento, who recently announced his retirement from competing after having last played for Evil Geniuses in the CWL Pro League.

Kenny reacts to eUnited’s coaching change

Kenny, who is currently with 100 Thieves in Columbus, OH for the CWL Pro League, took to Twitter to throw a jab at eUnited for making the coaching change. 

“When you can’t improve as a player so you replaced your coach,” he tweeted, along with the ‘crazy face’ emoji.

Clayster responds to Kenny’s tweet

Inevitably, Kenny’s tweet caught the attention of James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks, captain of the eUnited pro CoD team. However, contrary to what many fans were expecting, or hoping for, Clayster went with a very mature response.

“I’ll give you this round, even though you already won it at [CWL] Fort Worth,” he tweeted, referencing the recent major tournament that saw 100 Thieves eliminate eUnited in the first round of the Losers Bracket

Flashback to previous Clayster-Kenny encounter

Most fans of competitive CoD will recognize Kenny’s tweet to be very similar to the one Clayster put out back in late January, when 100 Thieves had controversially decided to drop Maurice ‘Fero’ Henriquez in favor of Preston ‘Priestahh’ Greiner. 

At the time, Clayster’s tweet sparked a deep rooted argument on Twitter with Kenny, which saw some insults being thrown around in their war of words.

In fact, Clayster referenced that exchange in the tweet above, conceding that Kenny “had won this round,” unwilling to dispute the notion that he was at least partly responsible for Saint’s departure. 

Kenny’s tweet was payback for a similar tweet put out by Clayster in January, when 100 Thieves dropped Fero.

Other Twitter reactions to Kenny’s tweet

Fully aware of the history between Kenny and Clayster, many tweeted out their reactions to Kenny’s tweet, most of which were memes in anticipation of the heated exchange that never came to be.

Here are some of the top reactions on Twitter:

Black Ops Cold War devs respond to console-bricking Xbox Series X issues

Despite the Xbox Series X console just launching, Black Ops Cold War players have reportedly encountered a number of game-breaking bugs already, some that have even supposedly ‘bricked’ the hardware completely.

The new generation of gaming consoles have certainly been hard to come by. However, certain players that were able to get their hands on the Xbox Series X at launch haven’t all been feeling lucky.

Black Ops Cold War launched on the new system, alongside five other platforms. With plenty of unique hardware to account for, it’s no surprise that the release has been accompanied by some critical bugs. While some pull players from the game momentarily, others appear to be far more damaging.

If you’re playing on the Xbox Series X and notice a few crashes, it might be time to put the controller down for a little while.

Gamers that have tried to play through certain issues have reported their brand new Xbox Series X consoles outright breaking and refusing to turn back on.

Word of Caution Xbox Series X from blackopscoldwar

“My Cold War had been crashing my Series X a bunch over the weekend,” Reddit user ‘Junesfoshiz’ said. While it wasn’t a major deal at first, things soon became much worse. “I’d just reboot and move on,” they explained. “Well, when it happened this morning, it was for good. Xbox will not boot back up.”

With their console no longer functioning, they advised others with the same crashing issues to “play something else until there’s a patch.”

Treyarch already investigating Xbox issues

Treyarch is well aware of these devastating issues already. In fact, it’s the top problem on the official Trello board, with developers investigating it at this very moment. “We’re investigating all crashes and across the game,” Treyarch community manager Josh ‘FoxhoundFPS’ Torres added on Reddit.

“My immediate recommendations are to make sure that you’re using the correct version for your platform,” the community manager wrote.

Similar to those playing on the PS5, you can still access the PS4 version by mistake. This can seemingly lead to all sorts of unique problems. Double-check that you’re running the proper version of the game if your Xbox Series X has been crashing while playing Cold War.

Last but not least, “players have also shared that disabling Ray Tracing on XSX has helped.” While you won’t be using the flashy new hardware to its full potential with Ray Tracing disabled, it should prevent some devastating crashes.

An incoming patch should help mitigate a good number of these problems on the Xbox hardware, including those that brick the Series X console. However, there’s currently no ETA on when this patch will arrive.
