OpTic’s Crimsix gets hilariously pranked by CEO H3CZ while streaming Black Ops 4 from his office

Most would not have the guts to mess with OpTic Gaming pro Call of Duty player Ian ‘Crimsix’ Porter, unless they’re Hector ‘H3CZ’ Rodriguez of course.

Crimsix was streaming Black Ops 4 from H3CZ’s office on October 22, which meant that the OpTic CEO was sure to make a cameo appearance at some point.

Sure enough, H3CZ took the reigns of the stream when Crimsix was away taking a break, and decided to mess with the pro player’s in-game settings before he got back.

After making sure with the chat that Crimsix was not in the middle of a tournament, H3CZ proceeded to mischievously turn off both Aim Assist and Target Assist.

Once Crim returned to his setup, H3CZ posed innocently, as if he had just been having a casual conversation with the viewers the entire time.

Once the pro player started a match and got into a few gunfights however, he noticed something felt off in his gameplay and was very confused about it.

“Hands are cold, hands are cold. Something’s going on. I don’t know,” he said. “What is going on? Wait what did you do? Did you turn aim assist off?”

Perhaps the funniest part about the whole thing comes right at the very end, when Crimsix explains that the speed at which his chat was moving gave something away, at which point H3CZ could be heard hilariously saying “The chat is full of snitches man!”

While friendly banter and pranks can help keep a working environment positive and fun, both H3CZ and Crimsix know that a long and serious competitive season lays before them, as they look to bounce back from the first trophy-less campaign OpTic has had in recent memory.

Full disclosure: OpTic CEO Hector ‘H3CZ’ Rodriguez is a minority shareholder in Dexerto Ltd


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.
