The rivalry between the OpTic Gaming and 100 Thieves Call of Duty teams doesn’t mean much yet to a lot of competitive CoD fans, but for Matt ‘Nadeshot’ Haag, it means everything.

The former OpTic Gaming player turned 100 Thieves owner has received plenty of criticism for comments he’s made in the past, including Scump shutting down claims that there’s a rivalry at all.

Nadeshot has now hit out at those who claim he’s hyping it up, releasing a statement on what it means during the 100 Thieves documentary on their win at CWL London.

100 Thieves went into the tournament as the heavy favorites, but it was OpTic who had the crowd on their side. The two sides met up twice during the tournament, but when it mattered it was Nadeshot’s team who walked away the winners.

“I don’t think you guys could ever understand how happy I was and how great that made me feel,” said Nadeshot after beating OG in the winner bracket final.

However the former professional player did explain earlier in the video how much the rivalry between the two means.

“Everyone wants to say I’m hyping up this rivalry or I’m making a big deal of a match that doesn’t matter, that these teams don’t have any history, whatever the case may be. It’s fine to say those things, but I disagree with them.

This matchup between OpTic and 100 Theives is incredibly important, it is a rivalry in my mind, it’s my former team. I built the damn team with Hector and Scump for 5 fucking years, ok? For you to tell me how much it’s supposed to mean, is ignorant, it’s stupid, it’s silly. I want to beat OpTic more than any team that exists.”

Nadeshot’s comments are unlikely to go down well with the OpTic faithful, the GreenWall, but it’s possible they have more worrying issues at hand with rumors currently circulating that the organization could be bought by Immortals, with the risk of the iconic brand disappearing altogether.

Ignoring that speculation for the time being and assuming nothing happens before the end of the season, the next time we’ll see OpTic and 100 Thieves CoD teams match up will be either at CWL Anaheim in June, or the CWL Pro League finals in July.

Dr Disrespect rants to himself for 10 mins after accidentally muting mic

Streaming superstar Dr Disrespect accidentally muted his microphone just as he began a legendary-looking rant about Call of Duty: Warzone, and may inadvertently have created a new trend in streaming at the same time.

Doc is undoubtedly one of the biggest personalities out there on the internet, but like anyone else, he can still fall victim to the treacherous mindset of getting tilted. 

Like all professionals, he usually does a good job of keeping the speed, violence, and momentum directed at opponents. But during a recent stream, he experienced one Warzone death due to flashbangs too many and took it out on his desk instead.

With a slam that would make fellow streaming star, xQc, proud, the Two-Time let his desk have it just as he was entering into what seemed like quite the heated exposition on the role of flashes grenades in Warzone.

The only problem was that his smack muted the microphone and he didn’t realize it, leading to what may have been the best mime impression on Twitch for the next 10-plus minutes.

It genuinely seems like the 2019 Streamer of the Year had no idea he was basically just talking to himself, as you can even see him going into bits and continuing to rant before he unmutes. It seemed to work out fine though, as he made a pretty penny in donations from viewers telling him they couldn’t hear.

Was it really a mistake, or a bold new strategy in streaming?

“Well, that’s what happens when you slam sh*t around, you know?” Doc reflected. “I think I got like, $100 bucks from people telling me I’m muted. Hey Alex, next time mute me for like two hours, yeah.”

If Dr Disrespect hasn’t chosen a Halloween costume for this year, maybe going trick-or-treating as a mime might be his best option at this point.

Speaking of Halloween, the good doctor’s annual Doctober costume contest is nearing its conclusion as hundreds of fans have submitted their best cosplays, hoping for a chance to be selected among the best. The winners are due to be announced in the upcoming few days, but you can check out some of the best costume submissions so far here.
