Syndicate hits out at Nadeshot over Minecraft YouTube series

by Connor Bennett


Popular YouTuber Tom ‘Syndicate’ Cassell has hit out at longtime friend and fellow content creator Matt ‘Nadeshot’ Haag after their Minecraft series came to an end. 

When it comes to YouTubers from the United Kingdom, there aren’t many that are more popular than Syndicate. The daily vlogger has shown his ability to play all games, starting with Call of Duty: Zombies before taking on regular multiplayer titles, and even battle royales with incredible ease.

Yet, a lot of his 10 million fans tune in to watch his different Minecraft series - with the main examples being his classics in Hunting OpTic and Mianite. But, his most recent series, The Hunting, which followed him taking down members of OpTic Gaming and 100 Thieves came to an abrupt end after 25 episodes - despite hopes that there could be more.

Outside of running 100 Thieves, Nadeshot still dabbles in YouTube videos and streams.

After Syndicate's final episode, titled The Final Battle went live on September 20, the YouTube star tweeted out his disappointment about its conclusion.

After comparing it to his original Hunting OpTic series, which was filmed quicker than this most recent series and wasn’t spoiled by people “revealing the characters/storyline" on different streams, Syndicate also added that the original members “didn’t have the time” for the server this time around.


Following that set of posts, Nadeshot responded to the thread of tweets, explaining his side of things. The 100 Thieves founder and CEO claimed that he “didn’t get on Minecraft to record a YouTube series,” and that the server was started to introduce Jack ‘Courage’ Dunlop to the popular title.

Nadeshot also added that he has a “full time” job and “never committed to playing Minecraft every day,” which is part of the reason why he never joined How to Minecraft - another popular series.

However, one fan pointed out that while the 100 Thieves founder and CEO said that he didn’t play to record a YouTube series, he was, indeed uploading his footage for videos.

Screenshots of his channel with a handful of uploads prompted a succinct reply from Syndicate, who added: “Say no more.”

Whether the pair hash out their differences outside of a public Twitter spat remains to be seen, but at least, for now, they probably won’t be jumping into another Minecraft server anytime soon.
