Two of Call of Duty Gears of War sequel on his September 23 stream, playing through rounds of the multiplayer mode to get a feel for the latest entry to the chainsaw-loving franchise.

Grzesiek had a few things to say about the game’s cover mechanics as he played, after one instance of the diving feature caused him to leap straight out in front of two enemies to be killed before he could react. The streamer had clearly had his fill of battling the cover-based moves.

The Gears of the War franchise has always been based around cover-based combat and chainsaw guns.

“Why? Why does it roll? I’m just trying to get off the fucking wall, bro!” shroud yelled as he was sent into the rapid-fire Gears respawning process.

The Counter-Strike pro wasn’t the only one that hasn’t had grievances with the cover-based system. Dr Disrespect, who had been tuned in to his streaming colleagues’ broadcast, also aired his problems with the automatic evades in-game.

“Watching shroud right now playing Gears 5.  He’s echoed the same problem I have. Why isn’t there a disable button for automatic evade off of cover?” the Two-Time asked. “I get that it does it off the cover edge but it seems too ‘systematic’ and limiting. I want full control.”

These issues with mechanics aren’t the first time one of the platform’s biggest streamers has struggled through problems relating to Gears 5 and its systems.

When the title was first released, Dr Disrespect spent hours battling with his PC options as he tried to turn off the Xbox notifications he was being bombarded with by fans, slowly descending into muted rage on-stream until he finally found a solution.

Although both Twitch stars have struggled to adapt to Gears’ click-and-stick cover mechanics, they’ve not lost any of their ability to produce exciting moments on their broadcasts.

Earlier this week, shroud bagged his first nuke of Modern Warfare on the final day of the beta, while the Doc proved that no matter how he feels about a game, he’s always willing to get better at it when he clutched a 1v4 sudden-death moment to win the round for his squad.

Sykkuno opened up about leaving the OfflineTV house and revealed he plans to move back in with family, but will stick around the Los Angeles area.

Sykkuno has only been a confirmed member of the OfflineTV house since August, but he’s already exploded in popularity. He deserves all the credit, though, since his content and input in collaborated streams has been thoroughly enjoyable.

It’s been a blast having him on board. However, Sykkuno ultimately decided not to stick around, and in one of his latest streams, he shared some details on what he’s planning to do next.

Sykkuno Leaving OfflineTV
Sykkuno has been streaming for a while, but he’s become immensely more popular in recent weeks.

“As most of you guys probably know, [I’m] moving soon,” he said. “So, I’m probably not going to be streaming for a couple of days after today obviously because there’s a lot of moving stuff going on.”

Initially, Sykkuno is planning to move back in with his family, but then he’d evaluate his options and decide what to do next. “I’m probably moving home for a bit, and then we’ll figure it out after that,” he said.

Sykkuno also said he would “probably” stay in Los Angeles in the long run but isn’t planning to buy a house. “That’s a little too expensive for me,” he said. “I don’t think that’s quite happening.”

Sykkuno Leaving OfflineTV
Sykkuno has been streaming Among Us on Twitch along with other popular streamers.

He described the move as a “bit of a hassle” but seemed excited about the future. He’s also adamant about not wanting to live alone. “I don’t want to live alone… I feel like it’s tough,” he said.

This hilariously opened the door for one fan to try and make an ambitious deal. “Pay for my rent, and I’ll live with you,” wrote the fan.

Sykkuno pondered for a moment and then jokingly pitched a counter-offer. “If you pay for my rent, I’ll there too, I suppose,” he said, laughing. “Thank you for the offer.”

Sykkuno didn’t mention anything else beyond that. However, if his meteoric rise continues to grow, the opportunities will be endless.

It comes after other OfflineTV members Scarra and Toast said that the OffliveTV house could be disbanding shortly.

“We can’t have a house that each of us have wives, husbands, our kids, and our pets living in once place,” Toast said in a recent stream.

It seems like Sykkuno’s fans will have his back no matter what he decides though. They’ve become a large and dedicated community in their own right.
