Often times good competition can make for the best and funniest moments between friends competing against each other.

Former captain of OpTic Gaming’s CoD team Matt ‘Nadeshot’ Haag and current OpTic coach Tyler ‘TeeP’ Polchow had a friendly war of words live on stream.

The two were competing against each other in the first round of KEEMSTAR’s ‘Friday Fortnite’ tournament, which featured some of the biggest names in the gaming content creation industry.

Nadeshot’s teammate was Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani, captain of Team SoloMid’s pro Fortnite team, while TeeP teamed with OpTic’s Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop.

Before the match, TeeP couldn’t help but point out that Nadeshot seems to always need help when trying to beat him.

“I just wanted to say, first you needed Seth [OpTic Scump] to beat me, and now you needed to get Myth. It’s unbelievable, you always need to get a hard carry don’t you man?”

TeeP was of course talking about OpTic Gaming’s Seth ‘Scump’ Abner, with whom Nadeshot was teammates with on OpTic for several years.

As the group laughed, Nadeshot tried to come back with his own roast.

“TeeP, have you ever won a championship without Crimsix? […] Have you won a championship without Crimsix, Aches, or Scump?”

This was a reference to the compLexity Gaming/Evil Geniuses CoD dynasty, of which TeeP, Ian ‘Crimsix’ Porter, and Patrick ‘ACHES’ Price were part of.

TeeP ended it all with the ultimate roast as he took the conversation to number of Champs wins.

“How many champs do you have in general? Do I have triple yours?”

After that, Nadeshot conceded the war of words, ending the light-hearted roast session with a white flag of truce.

“I actually would never disrespect you when it comes to Call of Duty, so I’m not going to say a fucking word.”


The two would go on to play against each other in the first round of the tournament, which TeeP and CouRage were able to handle with relative ease.

NICKMERCS rates the best Warzone players from to Scump to HusKerrs

Tasked with drafting a team for a Call of Duty: Warzone tournament, NICKMERCS went through some of the game’s biggest names, ranking them while determining who he would most want to duo with.

To start Davis ‘Hitch’ Edwards’ $10,000 “Cracked Creators” Warzone tournament, 16 creators were tasked with drafting their duo from 16 “cracked” streamers.

As one of the creators allowed to select their tandem, NICKMERCS sifted through 16 of the game’s best to determine who he would prefer to play with.

Ultimately, the FaZe streamer ended up putting his decision to a poll among his fans. But, before doing so, he originally went through all 16 and gave thoughts on how each of them ranks. And the options were varied, but all shared one thing in common: talent.

With professional Call of Duty League players like Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper and Seth ‘Scump’ Abner available, as well as Warzone streamers like Aydan and HusKerrs, the candidates were excellent. Still, NICKMERCS sifted through and broke down who he truly believes ranks as the battle royale’s best.

Segment begins at 00:20:45.

NICKMERCS starts by going through the list and just expressing what an absolute struggle it will be to pick from such a talented crop of peers: “Oh, it’s going to be so hard to pick man … No matter what, everybody that I would pick from is cracked.” But, after going through and complimenting practically everybody, he starts the process of elimination.

Since Nick chooses second after DrDisrespect, he immediately eliminates Zlaner as Doc’s likely first pick. Then, he eliminates JoeWo with two simple reasons: “I’ve never played with him and every time I play against him, I beat that little ass.”

Then, BobbyPoff is gone: “BobbyPoff, I love the guy, but take him off the list.” And the “Scarf Lord” is followed quickly by the Chicago Huntsmen’s FormaL and Scump: “Love ‘em, love ‘em. But I feel like there’s better BR players.” After that, things start getting complicated.

Similar to Zlaner, Nick decides to sacrifice Merk so that he can play with his longtime duo, Maven. Then, recognizing that all of these remaining players are absolute menaces on Verdansk, he goes with two simple metrics to determine his personal preference. He immediately prioritizes controller players and the highest earners in Warzone tournaments.

That eliminates stars like HusKerrs and Symfuhny for their mouse and keyboard usage, while also eliminating Crowder and DougIsRaw for their low earnings. Finally, he eliminates Jukeyz because of his struggles understanding the UK maestro’s accent and decides to put the decision to a poll.


Ultimately, it’s between Aydan and Tommey, with Cloakzy popping on to let NICKMERCS know that Aydan’s been playing some Fortnite recently. That leaves the FaZe star choosing Tommey, noting that “he’s got great communication, phenomenal player, guaranteed to get some chopper kills off rip.”

Despite going through full rankings for his options and landing upon an excellent duo, the decision-making process proved to be futile. NICKMERCS and Tommey could only end in the Top 12 for the tournament, while the easily dismissed BobbyPoff actually came in first place.
