Due to the state of hackers in Warzone, NICKMERCS is out.
It's been a hectic few days in the competitive Warzone community. After the Call of Duty League confirmed that Warzone will be integrated into the official esports scene in this year, everything looked to be on the rise. However, a spanner was thrown into the works as professional Warzone streamer Thomas "Tommey" Trewren caught out another competitive player with winnings under his belt to be using wallhacks and blatantly cheating.
Just hours later, during a huge $250,000 Twitch Rivals Doritos Bowl Warzone tournament was disgraced as the trio of METZY_B, kyrptic_j0ker, & Unifyz were disqualified for allegedly cheating. The allegations come as Tommey, Verdasnks' knight in shining armour, was sent various clips of what appeared to be evidence of aimbot hacks being in action.
With such tournaments' reputations being besmirched, its all got too much for the host of the MFAM Gauntlet: Nick "NICKMERCS" Kolscheff.
One of Warzone's deadliest men and a huge figure in the competitive scene has revealed that he's done with competing in Warzone, conceding to the hackers.
âThere's no pride in this thing [tournaments] anymore. Where's the dignity. Where's the honor system? Wtf is going on manâ
He stated: "They’ve been doing s**t, that’s even more crazy than that, I mean dude there are routers at play that let you ping in different locations… there are all kinds of hacks.
"That kid [Pacesetter] has been wall-hacking for how long? Guys, he did well in a f*****g MFAM tournament! Same kid.
"There’s no pride in this thing anymore man, where’s the dignity? Where's the pride? Where’s the honour system.”
Unfortunately, Nick is all too familiar with this trend. He added that "this is the same thing that happened in Fortnite. It's the natural evolution of games". With NICKMERCS out of future competitions, the CDL now has many hurdles to overcome should they want to run a professional Warzone league.
