Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s Chief Designer Twitter Account Stolen

A Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War player, hacked the Twitter account of Tony Flame, the game‘s lead designer. The hacker released a post about the system that players most discussed before the account was locked. Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, which debuted on November 13, 2020, was opened to players with a feature that is available in many multiplayer games. This feature was the SBMM feature that allows players to face players of the same skill level as them.

SBMM Controversy of Players

However, as in every multiplayer game, the SBMM feature divided Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War players. While some supported this feature, some did not. Here is one of the players who did not support the feature, hacked the Twitter account of Tony Flame, the game‘s lead designer, today. The player who hacked Tony Flame’s account made various shares from Flame‘s account. These posts included the advertisement of the Discord channel and the Instagram page. But the most important of the Tweets was the player’s system to the SBMM system. The player shared the following statements from Flame‘s Twitter account; “Uninstall SBMM Activision, you’re ruining the game I worked so hard to make.

This post made from the hacked Twitter profile is currently liked by more than 20 thousand Twitter users and possible CoD: Black Ops Cold War players. Of course, there are SBMM discussions under the tweet. With this tweet, the players started to argue with each other about SBMM. While all this was happening, no explanation came from either Treyarch or Activision. Besides that, Twitter locked Tony Flame‘s hacked account. The company is working to ensure that the account is delivered to the real owner. It is unknown where the SBMM discussions will lead after this event.
