Call of Duty streamer Seth “Scump” Abner and Activision’s conflict has been resolved.

On December 16, Scump announced that his YouTube and Twitch stream of the Call of Duty League was taken down by Activision. The reason was allegedly for copyright issues, with Activision citing the DMCA.

“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,” Scump said.

What happened to the Scump CDL watch party?

Activision announced that the Call of Duty 2024 season was going to have an exclusive deal with YouTube instead of being split between Twitch and YouTube. Because of this, streamers cannot broadcast Call of Duty League content on Twitch.

Despite the guidelines distinctly stating that no Call of Duty League matches can be streamed on Twitch, the esports community rallied behind Scump. The hashtag #FreeScump started spreading on X, with many calling for Activision to let him keep streaming CDL content.

Scump said he will be streaming Call of Duty watch parties on YouTube but no longer on Twitch.

“No more Twitch streams,” Scump clarified.
