After a Domination match at the Modern Warfare Game Fuel Pro Am, celebrity competitor Vince Staples had something to say to rapper T-Pain and Call of Duty pro Seth ‘Scump’ Abner during the post-match interview.

Six celebrities and six pro gamers have come together at the Modern Warfare Game Fuel Pro Am to showcase the new Call of Duty title. And with people from esports, sports, and music backgrounds meeting in an environment like this, it was bound to get competitive.

The six duos faced each other in a game of domination, and after his team lost, Vince Staples wasted no time in calling out some of his opponents.

Vince addressed his fellow rapper T-Pain first, after they both had a less-than-stellar performance on Gun Runner.

“T-Pain, I’m coming for you. I just want you to know, I done smacked you a couple of times but it’s okay, we’re gonna be friends after this.”

Then he turned his attention to famed CoD pro Scump, offering a half-warning half-plea to the 2017 world champion.

“Scump, stop chasing me. It’s not cool, you do this for a living. Stop chasing me. I’m sorry about the two times I shot you. Just let me play.”

The Modern Warfare showcase turned into the Scump showcase on that map, as he dropped 52 kills and only gave up 14 deaths. 

Scump’s celebrity teammate, Karl-Anthony Towns of the Minnesota Timberwolves, also showed up, with 20 kills himself. To make Vince’s time worse, KAT was also consistently talking smack after almost every round. He’s no stranger to talking trash.

The broadcast caught up with Vince later in the competition, patching into his comms while in-game. He clearly was still perturbed by the pro level play of Scump, saying “Scump’s a bully.” He also shared a tidbit about his unique style of play.

“I don’t use killstreaks, cause I’m organic. Like Whole Foods out here. Sprouts. Trader Joe’s. The farmer’s market.”

The celebrities and pro players continue to fight it out for a $25k donation to their charity of choice.

CoD streamers slam Warzone star WarsZ for “pathetic” K/D tanking

Call of Duty: Warzone stars continue to call each other out – this time Tommey is joined by HusKerrs and others in critiquing multi-event champion, WarsZ, for manipulating tournament Kill-Death Ratio (K/D) caps by tanking his account.

With more and more money being piled into Warzone tournaments, the stakes are higher than ever and competitors are understandably adamant about integrity. Many of these competitions have turned to K/D caps, as a way to limit good players from forming super squads that’ll end up dominating the opposition.

Following earlier condemnations from top streamers like NICKMERCS and Aydan about others gaming the K/D cap limits, Tommey has exposed WarsZ in particular for allegedly partaking in the unfair practice.

Tommey, a former Call of Duty League player and multi-time Warzone champion, did not hesitate to single out WarsZ for a suspicious drop in his kill-death ration just ahead of this week’s leg of the $210,000 Vikkstar Warzone Showdown.

Although the caps have been instituted in tournaments to provide for better parity among teams, they can also be manipulated by purposefully delivering uncharacteristically poor performances.

WarsZ has won six Warzone championships across different tournaments, so Tommey’s linked image of the streamer having double-digit zero-kill matches in the past few days is particularly damning.

“People seem to be scared of the repercussions but I’m fed up with the bulls**t,” Tommey tweeted, tagging the rival competitor directly while calling the alleged tanking “pathetic.”

As for WarsZ’s response, it was not well-received. Suggesting that this notable drop in K/D was spurred by having his “girl” play on his account, a variety of notable Warzone competitors slammed the excuse. Among those wast renowned multi-time champion, HusKerrs, who replied simply, “Brother, c’mon now… nobody is buying that.”

Popular streamer DougisRaw also chimed in, mocking the excuse for how obviously the screenshot goes against the idea of letting an inexperienced player drop in for some games: “Damn, your girl plays solo squads. She’s cracked.”

 

While none of the allegations can be proven, many seem dissatisfied with WarsZ’s excuse and believes it is unfair to competitors like Jukeyz and others who were unable to snag tournament spots because of their high K/D.

It must be noted, as Tommey mentioned in the tweet above, that Vikkstar’s tournament technically doesn’t prohibit such a tactic, so while WarsZ isn’t breaking any rules, it’s fair to say that the rest of the big-name competitors don’t think too highly of it.

It remains to be seen if other tournaments will begin following NICKMERCS in the way he runs his MFAM Gauntlets, monitoring participants’ past in-game performances to make sure that they’re not trying to circumvent the K/D cap.
