Dr Disrespect slammed Activision for its lack of anti-cheat while calling out Twitch Rivals’ lack of process to investigate hacks.
The scandal over cheater in a Warzone tournament saw a lesser-known streamer Metzy_B being accused of cheating during the $250K Twitch Rivals Doritos Bowl tournament. Tournament admins disqualified his team ahead of the final match, stripping them of any chance at tournament earnings.
Twitch Rivals have refrained from addressing the issue and completely ignored it during the broadcast. Sharing an explanation on Twitter, the admins simply said that Metzy “was ruled to be cheating” and subsequently “removed from the event.”
Touted as one of the highest Warzone earners currently, former Call of Duty League pro, Thomas ‘Tommey’ Trewren spent several hours interrogating the accused, while his friend took control of Metzy’s PC to check his logs for any proof of hacks. This all led to Dr Disrespect stating that regardless of an Activision anti-cheat, tournament organizers need to do better.

The Two-Time has a clear perspective as far as this issue is concerned. If the developers fail to institute an effective anti-cheat, then every single tournament must “define a process in finding out if he is [cheating] or not … obviously outside of the whole Call of Duty not having an anti-cheat kind of software built-in.”
While most participants in the tournament believed Metzy cheated, some weren’t so sure. Since details about how Twitch handled the situation being scarce, the community decided to investigate themselves. Dr Disrespect has heard that the purple snakes disqualified Metzy based on a couple of suspicious clips, and didn’t even ask to check his PC.
This coincides with what the accused claims. Metzy has since lauded Tommey for trying to determine what the admins have been unable to. That account goes against others, as fellow competitor BobbyPoff reacted by accusing Metzy of being reluctant to show his task manager logs.
I talked to the mods of twitch rivals and they based the dq mainly off of one clip and I specifically kept asking for someone to jump in a call with me to go through everything. Tommey put his own career on the line for this situation and he shouldn’t have had to! Much love

what i dont understand is why he couldnt just open his task manager and show us what he was running?!? If youre not hiding anything then why not show us lmfao

With Twitch Rivals not giving any explanation of their process and several files that could have been deleted before Tommey got access, finding the truth may be impossible at this point. Stay tuned in here for the latest e-sports news.
