OpTic’s CouRage Makes Plans to Play Black Ops 4 at Launch With Several High Profile Rappers

OpTic Gaming’s Jack “CouRage” Dunlop has big plans for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and would like to stream it with a few high profile hip-hop artists when the game releases in October.

Rapper Lil Yachty tweeted about his excitement for Black Ops 4, predicting it will be the best Call of Duty ever, and CouRage was quick to respond with a suggestion to team up.

Justin Taylor, the Director of Digital Marketing for Activision, spotted the tweets and seemed to offer a spot on the Call of Duty stream schedule this fall. CouRage, a former CoD World League caster, was all for the idea and even mentioned a possible third, Post Malone.

Although Post Malone did not respond in the thread, it is not out of the question considering he streamed CoD: WWII with CouRage earlier in the year. He even recently teamed up with compLexity Gaming’s pro CoD team to get some games in with them as well.

Lil Yachty is a big time gamer as well, streaming Fortnite duos with Ninja and participating in the Fortnite Pro Am alongside Preston “TBNRfrags” Arsement.

Fortunately for CouRage, they only need to find two more players for a full squad, since Black Ops 4 is switching to a five player per side format.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 releases on October 12th and you can expect a few big names to be involved in the upcoming promotions.


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.
