FaZe Swagg roasts Trainwreck’s “goofy” style after Warzone tournament

After winning the $100,000 Toronto Ultra Warzone tournament, FaZe Swagg posted a picture in celebration. After immediately having his style roasted by Trainwrecks, the Warzone streamer has clapped back. 

You just won a lot of money in a daylong tournament and met up with a few friends afterwards to celebrate. You feel good, think you look good, and post a picture on Twitter wearing matching sneakers with one of your buddies. Another friend comments, gassing you up for looking “sexy as hell,” but suddenly, he proceeds to roast your shoes for the whole world to see.


What do you do? Well, if you’re Swagg, you clap back with quickness.

Swagg and his longtime friend, JSmoothHD, have matching Tactical Nuke chains, FaZe Clan gear, and white-on-white Air Max 97’s. That’s what friends are for; going out and eating steak to celebrate a gaming tournament win (and maybe wearing some matching clothes along the way). 


But friends are also here for roasts, as Trainwrecks proved true by immediately taking offense to one part of Swagg’s outfit. Insistent that he will “keep it a buck” and does not care “what rappers wear,” Trainwrecks took aim at Swagg’s sneakers.


Summarizing the Air Maxes, which are an objective streetwear icon, as “ugly as hell,” Mr. Wrecks then proceed to equate Swagg with a “crosswalk woman mixed with a 67-year-old cyclist wearing reflective gear.” 

He obviously has a very specific vision in mind, and one has to imagine that “crosswalk woman” refers to school crossing guards who wear reflective vests. One thing is abundantly clear: Trainwrecks doesn’t care if those sneakers are popular among rappers (or know that they are actually popular across much of the world) and believes that wearing them makes you look like an older person concerned with incoming traffic.


And, in response, it is clear that Swagg is unbothered and does not believe he is the one who lacks fashion sense.


In his retort, the newfound tournament champion kept it simple and let the Scuffed Podcast host know that he is “goofy” and probably wears every American teenager’s preferred set of footwear: Vans.

And through this saga we are all reminded of the simple fact that friends should feel free to match with each other and, at all times and across all mediums, roast each other.

H3CZ acquires OpTic Gaming from Immortals: Report

Hector ‘H3CZ’ Rodriguez has reportedly acquired OpTic Gaming in a deal separate from his ties with NRG Esports, where he currently serves as co-CEO.

The deal reportedly sees H3CZ set to occupy the Los Angeles Call of Duty League spot held by OpTic Gaming, an organization he created and built before its sale in June 2019, in which Immortals Gaming Club acquired OpTic parent company, Infinite, in a deal valued at around $100m.


According to Esports Observer, the acquisition is still pending League approval, and H3CZ himself “intends to divest to interested esports organizations.” This is likely a compulsory step due to ownership rules of the CDL preventing H3CZ having ownership in more than one team in the league.

As the original report says, “sources close to the deal have come forward stating that after negotiations spanning a little over a month, Rodriguez purchased the OpTic Gaming IP in its entirety.”

H3CZ HuntsmenH3CZ currently serves as co-CEO of NRG Esports and their CDL team, Chicago Huntsmen.

This would mean that H3CZ owns every asset and resource under the OpTic Gaming umbrella, and that negotiations likely started taking place around the time of the Call of Duty League Championship in late-August.

His ties with Chicago Huntsmen are expected to remain intact, so where the CDL spot occupied by OpTic Gaming Los Angeles goes remains to be seen, though commissioner Johanna Faries has recently insisted that there is “great demand” for expansion slots — so one lucky team might just get their wish.

Naturally, fans want to see the likes of Nadeshot and his 100 Thieves organization find his way back into the Call of Duty League, but after his decision not to buy-in at the start of its inaugural year, it’s impossible to speculate whether he would have had a change of heart since then.


We have reached out to H3CZ for comment.
