Seth “Scump” Abner, pro Call of Duty player for the Chicago Huntsmen recently called the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare to be the worst Call of Duty game ever made. One of the most prominent faces of the Call of Duty League scene, Scump was fined by the league for his comment. Fans had got the news of him getting fined, but the reason was unknown since Call of Duty still does not have the rule of making fines public.
It was not until Scump said so on The Eavesdrop Podcast, hosted by HECZ, that the reason was revealed.
Modern Warfare has already received a lot of hate from pros. Some have even criticized the League. But Scump is probably the first one to get fined for calling this game bad in public.
Scump had previously called this Modern Warfare the worst one ever in a video with the entire Chicago Huntsmen team. In the video, he also calls the game “counter-intuitive.” Later on, in The Eavesdrop Podcast hosted by HecZ, who is a good friend of Scump, he was asked by HECZ what he feels about the game.
Now, this was after he was fined by the CoD League. Scump answered that question in a diplomatic way in the podcast, saying that the opinion depends on how a player perceives the game. He immediately adds that he will not be sharing his personal opinion on the game so that the League does not charge him a fine again.
A Twitch streamer, Kevi, posted a tweet with another video where Scump refuses to talk about the game in fear of getting fined again.
Many other pro players have been throwing hate about Modern Warfare on Twitter. Scump has been leaving the same reply on their tweets, and frankly, it is really funny. Here is a tweet by “Slacked”, captain of the Seattle Surge CODL team.
Royal Ravens player “Zer0” also tweeted about CoD Modern Warfare not being good, and got the same reply from Scump.
What do you think about Scump getting fined? Do you think it was fair?
