It seems all it’s solved between Scump and Activision.
Seth “Scump” Abner and Activision have resolved the disagreements that led to the taking down of the streamer's Call of Duty League watch party.
Activision decided to lift the unofficial ban issued to Scump last night. The streamer saw his stream on YouTube and Twitch taken down by the publisher via DMCA.
Scump opened today's CDL broadcast by clarifying the matter.
"No more Twitch streams ladies and gentlemen. I do want to say, that yesterday we got taken down. Talked with CDL last night, actually very positive conversations that went down, but yeah no more Twitch streams during the CDL. "
What happened for Activision to take down Scump's CDL watch party?
To understand the context of yesterday's takedown of Scumps stream by Activision, we have to go back. For the 2024 Call of Duty League season, the league announced an exclusive deal with YouTube. This differed from the 2023 season which was split between Twitch and YouTube.
Watch parties initially continued for the new season under new guidelines. First, it is Thomas "ZooMaa" Paparatto having conversations with the CDL about the rules for the 2024 season.
The content creator later knows that he cannot stream the CDL on Twitch, even without gameplay footage.
Now Scump finds out something similar, only streams on YouTube or Activision will take it down.
Community reacted to Activision's ban for Scump
Yesterday several personalities and people from the community showed support for Scump after his stream was taken down. The hashtag #FreeScump quickly went viral on X. Furthermore, OpTic, Scump's organization, did not also hesitate to show support for one of the organization's legends:
"If Scump has 1 million fans, I am one of them, If Scump has 100 fans, I am one of them, If Scump has 1 fan, that is me, If Scump has 0 fans, then I am no longer alive, If the world is against Scump, I am against the world #FreeScump"
