Former FIFA professional participant Kurt0411 isn’t any stranger to controversy, having sparked an enormous outcry and hacking of one of many builders, Mr. Zaro, account following his ban from aggressive FIFA late final yr. Now Kurt is again within the highlight, however not due to FIFA such as you’d anticipate, however Name of Obligation, the place he’s sparked a beef with Scump and FormaL.
Is This a Crossover Episode?
The drama kicked off yesterday when Kurt determined to raid FormaL and Scump whereas they have been streaming one among their scrims on Twitch, bringing 2,155 viewers with him into their channels.
With notifications turned off since they have been specializing in the scrim, Neither participant seen the raid coming into their chat and did not acknowledge it for a couple of minutes. This infuriated Kurt, who was anticipating thanks of some kind from the 2, resulting in a tweet stating:
In different information by no means raiding one other COD streamer ever once more. Simply since you’re fortunate sufficient to be enjoying a sport directly doesn’t imply you shouldn’t acknowledge a raid triple your viewers. Fuck @scump and @FormaL

His followers rapidly took up Kurt’s frustration and commenced spamming FormaL’s chat with Kurt’s alien emote and calling him ungrateful. For his half, FormaL did finally thank Kurt as soon as the scrim was over and even went to love his tweet, but Kurt continued to fume over being what he noticed as snubbed.
It didn’t cease there, nevertheless, as Kurt additionally started insulting Karma and attacking 100 Thieves’ content material crew, The Mob, as he tried to roast their member Froste.
The entire ordeal reeks of Kurt being a picky beggar, and actually doesn’t help basic neighborhood opinion of him following his very public fallout with FIFA’s builders. Particularly as Kurt had nothing to do with the Name of Obligation scene, FormaL, or Scump beforehand. First impressions are every thing, and when your first interplay with a sport’s neighborhood is attacking a few of its largest names, you’re not going to have an excellent time.
Personally, I perceive why they weren’t in a position to give attention to their streams: with lower than every week to go till the Name of Obligation League begins, the groups have to give attention to perfecting their sport plan and getting prepped for a robust, preliminary displaying to start out constructing a following. As a former professional participant, even when it’s simply FIFA, Kurt ought to know the significance of specializing in observe, even whether it is being streamed.
The truth that he’s performing so infantile makes me really feel much less pity for him getting banned by EA, and he ought to actually do some inner reflection about how he reacts in direction of others earlier than he acts sooner or later.
