Call of Duty: Warzone has continued to face criticism from the streaming community, this time over a new Godzilla vs Kong event.

Operation Monarch began on May 11, dropping killer kaiju Godzilla and Kong into the game in a limited time mode. There were also some new cosmetics that give players Godzilla-inspired helmets and glowing gear. But it only took a few hours for big streamers to share negative opinions about the event.

NICKMERCS, Dr Disrespect react to Call of Duty: Warzone Operation Monarch

After only playing for a few hours, Herschel “Dr Disrespect” Beahm IV rated the game a 2.2 out of 10. The low score seemed to be aimed at the childishness of the event, with Dr Disrespect asking if he’s “nine years old” in the tweet.

Nick “NICKMERCS” Kolcheff had a similar reaction just hours into the Warzone Operation Monarch launch. He called the event “awful,” noting that Godzilla and King Kong “don’t even fight.”

The gaming community reacted to the streamers’ quick judgment with mixed feelings. Some felt that the streamers were being too harsh, with someone calling out NICKMERCS for clearly just preferring Apex Legends over Warzone. They asked why NICKMERCS wanted to see the two kaiju fight during a match, telling him to watch the movie instead.

But others agreed with the streamers that the event was “chaotic,” with the monsters seemingly attacking players “at random.” Others felt it looked cool visually but lacked any substance and felt it was “boring” after a while.

Call of Duty: Warzone has not been a huge hit with streamers as of late. Due to ongoing bugs and a huge cheater problem, big streamers have openly bashed Warzone and declared that they have no desire to play it. Dr Disrespect has declared he was quitting Warzone multiple times. It seems that the latest event has done nothing to change streamers’ minds so far.
