CouRage Slams Modern Warfare 2 SBMM

For all of his recent endeavours with variety game titles and 100 Thieves' own 'Project X, Jack "Courage" Dunlop has more Call of Duty experience than most. The former CoD World League caster and presenter spent many years studying the game where he found his big break - playing and casting alike.

With the introduction of Modern Warfare 2, a range of old-school content creators have flocked back over to Call of Duty to showcase the beta in all of its glory at the CoD: Next showcase and the opening weekend of public playlists.

However, the beta has soon found to be an extended version of the CoD: Next showcase, with skill-based matchmaking shoving the best professionals and content creators into the same "sweaty" lobbies.

Courage Hits Out At Modern Warfare 2 SBMM

Having tried and tested Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 at its reveal, Courage has now taken to the beta to continue getting to grips with the next Call of Duty instalment. 

However, after being pushed into the "sweatiest lobbies of all time", Courage has lashed out at the developers for implementing such a strong SBMM system into public matches without the option to play ranked.

"Call of Duty Multiplayer died for me when every player had to have a 1.0 K/D," claimed Courage, having an obvious pop at Infinity Ward for tailoring their new game towards the casual 'one-hour-a-week' fan base.

Courage Criticises Modern Warfare 2 beta

Activision has been widely criticised for protecting players that aren't necessarily high up in the skill-gap pyramid, openly admitting to shielding campers and punishing aggressive players.

 

"Sit in a corner and crank your headset, that's the new way to play," joked OpTic Gaming content creator David "Hitchariide" Edwards. "If only they showed up when they fired their weapons. I didn't sign up for hide n go seek," added three-time world champions Damon "Karma" Barlow, pointing toward the mini-map fiasco.

Unfortunately for Courage, he might be forced to tighten up his tongue a little bit, now that his 100 Thieves has announced a rival FPS game is under development. This, and being openly critical about Call of Duty, is why the developers have ended their relationship with Herschel "Dr Disrespect" Beahm.
