Veteran streamer Chance “Sodapoppin” Morris has claimed that he “never” received the beta versions of Activision Blizzard games like Overwatch and World Of Warcraft. The reason, he believes, is because one employee “f**king hates” him.
Sodapoppin earned his title as a streaming community veteran after setting up his Twitch account at the age of 18.
Although he experienced a huge surge in popularity after featuring Among Us in his content, it was his WoW streams that helped catapult him to stardom in his early career and later on becoming one of the MMO’s most popular players at the time close.
However, despite his incredible success, Soda claims that WoW developer Activision Blizzard wasn’t willing to work with him. So much so that there was a sponsorship deal with the streamer.

On June 24, Sodapoppin shared that he was once approached about a sponsorship deal with Activision Blizzard ahead of the release of the Crusader class in Diablo Immortal. However, the deal soon fell through for a serious reason.
“A long time ago, and that was when I was much younger, I was given the opportunity to sponsor the new Crusader class in Diablo 3,” Soda claimed. “They don’t even pay that much, I’m just excited, and all they wanted was a YouTube video of them playing and demonstrating the Crusader class.”
However, he then received a call from the management company that originally hired him for the job, reportedly saying, “Blizzard really doesn’t like you and we screwed up. We’re sorry. They don’t want you to do the video.” Even so, he was offered half of the original fee for not releasing the clip instead.
It’s not clear why the deal went through, but Soda believes it’s because a Blizzard employee has a “personal vendetta” against him. As a result, he was also denied access to beta versions of Blizzard games like Overwatch and WoW.
However, Soda is all forgiven: “To be fair, I deserved it back then […] I was bad then. There’s nothing else, I was really, really bad.”
Despite his success, Soda has found himself in hot water on a number of occasions throughout his career, not just with his fellow streamers but even with Twitch.
