Just leave them alone.

This is why we can’t have nice things. When Call of Duty legend and 100 Thieves CEO Matthew "Nadeshot" Haag got the crew consisting of TheMob and Team Summertime together for a nostalgic revisiting of the eight-year-old Black Ops 2, a hacker gained access to the group’s lobby and began disrupting the experience on several occasions.

Trying to reason with the obnoxious hacker in a diplomatic manner, Nadeshot tried to explain that they were simply trying to relive an experience from their youth. Initially, the hacker seemed to respond to the request but ultimately returned to disrupting the games.

Later members of the group would take to Twitter to call the hackers out and find solutions to the problems they were facing. “All we wanted to do is play Black Ops 2 and relive the glory days... but some dorks had to ruin that for us. Lame,” Nadeshot stated to his fans. 

Despite the annoyance, the guys still managed to have some fun creating moments like the following, showing that the matches would’ve not lacked in the banter department.

We can hope for a reunion of the group perhaps due to the help of fans suggesting different kinds of methods to protect them from future attacks in these nostalgic games. Given that the event was timed in tandem with the soon to be revealed Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Multiplayer, we could also hope to see these players battle it out in the beta version at a later date.
