Summit1g on WoW Classic guilds and why players shouldn’t worry about the ‘meta’

Jaryd ‘summit1g’ Lazar has reached out to World of Warcraft players with some advice about how to get into guilds, and it certainly goes against some suggestions from the game’s online community. 

The Twitch streamer, who has over 3.8 million followers on the platform, has been playing the popular multiplayer game for a number of weeks and has found himself being constantly advised to make decisions by members of his chat.

However, on June 16 the former CS:GO streamer explained why players should not choose to play with a character they don’t like, just because a guild is looking for somebody to play a role in their team.

Blizzard EntertainmentGuilds give World of Warcraft a social aspect by allowing players to group and raid much easier.

“Right, not every single guild is looking for top, top, top, top D or DPS,” summit said during his June 16 livestream. “Not every single guild is going to be like ‘yeah, fuck Clothies let’s just bring a fuckload of Warriors and Rogues.’ Not every guild is going to do that. Those are the fucking try hard guilds. Get in a guild to have a good time.

“Do whatever the fuck you want,” he added. “This whole stupid meta in WoW Classic is dumb as fuck. Play what you want. You don’t want to go engineering, God forbid? Don’t go fucking engineering.”

For those who aren’t aware, the guild feature allows players the opportunity to come together and complete common objectives as a unit. Some of these groups are, admittedly, looking for specific people to join them on their quests, but as summit explains, there’s not really a need to play with a character you’re not comfortable playing with.

Yet, perhaps working with one that you enjoy, and sticking with it, may give you a good chance of linking up with others in-game too. At least, that’s what he’s been doing anyway, despite having some frustrations with Rogue.

Whether or not many of summit’s viewers will take his advice on board remains to be seen, but he’s always been a streamer that will play games he wants to play and, clearly, he’s taken the same attitude with character selection on WoW.

Black Ops Cold War is still a few weeks away from launch, though an early leak appears to have confirmed all 21 Scorestreaks that will be available from day one.

Killstreaks and Scorestreaks have been a staple of the Call of Duty franchise for many years now. Black Ops Cold War is sticking to the formula with a few unique changes, though there might be more streaks to unlock than ever before. 

Treyarch’s next release is set to drop on November 13 though major leaks are already starting to slip through the cracks. We got our first look at a list of Scorestreaks through the game’s early access Alpha and Beta tests. However, that was barely scratching the surface if the new intel holds true.

Black Ops Cold War is set to boast 21 unique streaks at launch. All of which can be earned across multiple lives so long as you’re adding to your total score by tallying kills and completing objectives. While we can’t include the leaked image as to avoid DMCAs, here’s a rundown on each and every streak.

The early access Alpha gave us a look at just a few Black Ops Cold War Scorestreaks.

First up, the cheapest streak in the game appears to be the Incendiary Bow. Just like the War Machine available in the Beta, this will be an equippable weapon to deal extraordinary damage. Next up are a few familiar inclusions on the cheaper side of things. The RC-XD, Spy Plane, Counter Spy Plane, and Care Package are all to be expected. Though one new streak stands out.

At 700 points, players will seemingly be able to equip some armor just like in Warzone. The icon displays a bulletproof vest, so additional health could be on the menu in the core multiplayer experience

The Flamethrower is another fresh addition that we haven’t seen yet, while the Death Machine is reportedly also making a return. As we scale up to the more expensive streaks, a Hand Cannon is available for 2250 points. There’s no telling just how this one might work, though it could provide a One In The Chamber style buff.

At the very end of the list is the expected AI and pilotable Scorestreaks. You’ve got the Attack Helicopter and Chopper Gunner alongside a VTOL Escort and the Gunship to round things out. You’ll need to go on an absolute tear to unlock the final streak, however, as it’s placed at 10,000 points.

Below is a complete list of all Scorestreaks coming to Black Ops Cold War.

All 21 Scorestreaks in Black Ops Cold War

  • Incendiary Bow – 500
  • RC-XD – 600
  • Armor – 700
  • Spy Plane – 800
  • Counter Spy Plane – 900
  • Flamethrower – 1,000
  • Care Package – 1,250
  • Sentry Turret – 1,400
  • Death Machine – 1,500
  • Cruise Missile – 1,750
  • Artillery – 2,000
  • Hand Cannon –  2,250
  • Napalm Strike – 2,500
  • Air Patrol – 3,000
  • War Machine – 3,250
  • Strafe Run – 3,500
  • Attack Helicopter – 4,000
  • H.A.R.P. – 5,000
  • Chopper Gunner – 6,000
  • VTOL Escort – 8,000
  • Gunship – 10,000

Outside of AI-controlled air support, there will be a few pilotable streaks as usual in Black Ops Cold War.

Obviously, it’s worth taking this information with a grain of salt for now. There’s a good chance this information comes from an earlier build of the game. Some Streaks may have been removed or significantly changed already. 

Be sure to keep your eyes peeled over the coming days, however. If early copies of the game are already out in the wild, more leaks will likely be on the way.
