Nadeshot defends Kenny’s ‘arrogance’: “That’s the mindset Crimsix has”

100 Thieves CEO Matthew ‘Nadeshot‘ Haag spoke at length on his April 30 stream about the “one-sided” conversation among fans, who treat players like Kenny ‘Kenny‘ Williams differently than veteran players like his former teammate, Ian ‘Crimsix‘ Porter.

After an incredibly impressive season in CoD: WWII, Kenny was widely considered one of the very best professional players, which earned him a spot on Nadeshot’s 100 Thieves team on their return to CoD esports.

A rough start to the Black Ops 4 season for Kenny saw some fans turn on him – especially as his confidence never wavered, and many accused him of having an unjustified ‘ego’.

Kenny won three tournaments during the WWII season.

Nadeshot says Kenny hate is unfair

Nadeshot explains that this accusation is unfair, as every player, regardless of how many tournaments they have won, will always go into each match believing they are the best.

“When somebody like Kenny starts showing how he feels, it’s like “dude, you haven’t won enough, fuck Kenny, he’s cocky, arrogant and ignorant, he doesn’t deserve to have this type of attitude,” Nadeshot explains, “it’s a really one-sided conversation.”

Leading up to this, Nadeshot had been discussing his thoughts on Crimsix’ attidude in the game, explaining that although they are great friends outside of Call of Duty, “competing brings out the worst in people.”

“I’m friends with Crim. Outside of Call of Duty, me and Crim have a lot in common.” Haag states, “Me and Crim are good friends, out of the game. Do I like the way that he handles himself in-game? No. But did I like the way I handled myself in-game? No.”

Nadeshot continues: “I just think it’s really silly and short-sighted, for people to say they don’t like Kenny because he’s arrogant, or he’s cocky. You don’t know him personally, and even if he is cocky and arrogant, you guys say he’s not allowed to be, because he hasn’t won enough.”

Crimsix is the winningest player in the history of Call of Duty in terms of tournament wins, with 32 major LAN championships under his belt, compared to Kenny’s three.

The pair will have another chance to square off at CWL London, as the two teams have been placed into pool A, and will be the final mainstage match on Friday, May 3.

Black Ops Cold War bug removes grass on Cartel and players are loving it

Ever since the beta, Black Ops Cold War players have been complaining about the grass on the map Cartel, claiming that it’s too high and can block visibility. Now, a bug is eliminating that grass and players are apparently loving it. 

When the Black Ops Cold War beta first launched and players had the opportunity to try out all the maps the prerelease version had to offer, one stood out among the rest because of its terrible visibility: Cartel. While the outskirts are fine and pretty open, the center is generally considered a nightmare because of incredibly tall grass that blocks sightlines.

Ever since then, fans have been complaining about the visibility and when the game launched, nothing about the visibility was changed in any drastic way. Now, all of those complaints are being resolved in Black Ops Cold War – all thanks to a bug.

According to a few Reddit posts, fans have been experiencing a bug on Cartel that essentially removes the extremely tall grass. As one can see from the pictures, the glitch gives the map a way more open feeling and allows players to see the center more easily than the normal version.

Response to the no-grass version has been overwhelmingly positive, with some people calling the bug “beautiful” and “how Cartel should be.” User bobagolf pointed out in one of the more popular posts that it looked so nice that it “makes it look like the version with the bushes should be the bugged version.”

To be clear, it’s unknown whether or not this glitch is new. Some players were reporting that they got it “early on” but considering at least three separate posts were added to Reddit talking about it in the span of 24 hours, it seems like, at the very least, it is now happening more frequently.

Normally, it’s easy to hope for a quick fix from the developers, but considering most players seem to be in love with the version, it may be in everyone’s best interest if Treyarch just makes it a permanent feature of the map and removes the grass entirely. Only time will tell what they’ll end up doing.
