The deadline for CWL substitutes is approaching and competitive Call of Duty is experiencing a mini Rostermania.

With any CoD Rostermania activity comes a significant amount of rumors and 100 Thieves’ Maurice ‘Fero’ Henriquez gave plenty for people to talk about.

The versatile S&D star removed all 100T branding and info from his Twitter account, leading some to speculate if he will be replaced by a substitute player.

He also let out a vague tweet with Drake lyrics that would be another coincidence if 100T does not bring in a sub. Drake, for what it’s worth. has an ownership interest in 100 Thieves.

Sources close to the situation indicate that Fero is indeed the leading candidate to be replaced by a sub, with FaZe Clan’s Priestah the preferred option.

Of course, it is possible Fero just wanted to switch up his social media and listen to Drake, though the timing is interesting.

Because of CWL roster rules, it is not possible for teams to change their roster until after the first stage of competition in March, however they can add one substitute.

With the star-studded 100 Thieves roster under-performing relative to expectations, it would not be surprising to see their substitute take on a more regular role in place of a current member – especially when huge names from FaZe Clan, G2 and LP became available after the Pro League Qualifier.

Fero broke onto the professional scene during the WW2 season where he won the Pro League Stage 2 and finished runner up at CoD Champs with Team Kaliber.

His play turned the head of 100T Owner Nadeshot, who brought on Fero and fellow TK star Kenny to bring 100 Thieves back to competitive Call of Duty.

During the announcement that Black Ops Cold War Season 1 and it’s subsequent Warzone integration would be slightly delayed by six days, the developers released a teaser image that all but confirms that the new map will involve Rebirth Island.

Earlier today, the CoD community was taken aback by the fact that the first post-launch content season for Black Ops Cold War had been officially delayed by six days.

While the delay isn’t long by any stretch of the imagination, many fans have been eager for more content, including the integration with Warzone, which so far we didn’t have many official details on.

But during the news, Treyarch dropped a teaser image for the season which at first glance might not show off much but if you look closely pretty much confirms all of the leaks that have come out over the last month or so.

Rebirth Island was originally teased in the Season 1 roadmap for Black Ops Cold War.

At the top of the teaser image, which says that Season 1 is coming on December 16, fans can see that a few phrases in red blurred out in varying degrees. Upping the brightness of the image in Photoshop reveals a few cool, interesting details.

The first is a set of coordinates at the very top of the image. Inputting that latitude and longitude into Google Maps will take you to the real-life Vozrozhdeniya Island in Uzbekistan, otherwise known as Rebirth Island. Beyond that, the phrase “Rebirth Island” can actually be seen in the image as well.

While both of these can be seen normally in the base image, they are way easier to see after it’s been brightened.

Brighting the teaser image in Photoshop reveals coordinates for the real-life Rebirth Island.

This all but confirms the leaks that Rebirth Island will be coming to the game when the integration happens and given the fact that the developers have already confirmed a new map for the season, it’s almost certainly this one.

As with with any other rumor or speculation, take this with a grain of salt, however, fans will likely be getting their first look at Rebirth Island sometime within the next week or two so keep an eye out for that.

Until then, keep it locked to Dexerto for more about Black Ops Cold War and Warzone.
