Apex Legends pro HisWattson under fire for leaked messages to hacker and ‘hating’ Respawn developer

One of Apex Legends’ top professional players and streamers, Jacob “HisWattson” McMillin, has come under intense scrutiny from the community after a series of leaked messages he sent to a notorious hacker.

HisWattson was signed to Furia’s pro roster ahead of the 2022 ALGS World Championship, where they finished second, and HisWattson was named MVP.

However, in addition to his skill in the game, McMillin also gained a reputation for talking about the game himself and had public arguments with Respawn developers in the past.

On September 5, tensions between HisWattson and Respawn flared up again. He complained that the Apex Legends security team was unavailable on weekends, leaving him unable to stream due to targeted attacks on his games.

Sparking debate with his post, other pro gamers and streamers argued that he was unfair and that the devs cannot be expected to work over the weekend for the glitch. a player.

“Developers have lives too,” said streamer Nokokopuffs. “99% of people with your problem should submit a ticket and wait/play an email tag game. Waiting 1-2 days isn’t so bad.

Leaked messages from HisWattson to hacker

The next day, a hacker and leaker from the Apex community shared a screenshot of messages sent by HisWattson, asking for help with the attacks on his games.

“I just know you’re a sleazy dataminer and replied to my two tweets without following, so I thought you might find out what happens if it’s malicious,” he asked the leaker. .

When the leaker replied that he should ask the Respawn developer “Hideouts”, HisWattson replied “I also hate hideouts and want the clown on Twitter.”

HisWattson responded to confirm the posts were real and doubled down on his comments. “Everything I said is public information. I hate EA. I hate hiding (but I usually only chase him when he says something first).

It also appears that the hacker/leaker admits to being responsible for or having knowledge of the attacks on HisWattson matches.

Former Apex Legends pro Snip3down slammed HisWattson for the posts. “Going out of your way to reach out to a known cheater, ask them to help you ‘benefit each other’ by fueling your dislike of EA and a specific member of their team specifically to publicly flame them is 100% out of pocket. “

TSM member Albralelie said HisWattson was “quickly executing a ban on EA-sanctioned events.”

“You gotta seriously start thinking about what you’re doing man.”

EA, Respawn, and Hideouts itself did not respond to the leaked messages or HisWattson’s response.
