After weeks of uncertainty 100 Thieves Call of Duty player Maurice ‘Fero’ Henriquez has revealed whether or not he will be involved at CWL Fort Worth, the upcoming second major tournament of the current CWL season. 

Fero, of course, is no longer on 100 Thieves’ starting roster for the CWL Pro League, having been demoted in favor of FaZe Clan’s Preston ‘Priestahh’ Greiner back in January.

As a result, he will not be representing the org at CWL Fort Worth, which means that the only way he can compete at the event is by leaving 100T and either joining another pro team or trying to navigate the open bracket of the amateur competition. 

While Fero’s involvement at CWL Fort Worth remained a mystery for a while, he now has announced that he will not be competing with another team or joining an amateur team, and thus will be forced to sit out the event. 

“I will not be competing at Fort Worth,” he tweeted on March 7. “I feel like it’s in my best interest to wait this one out and see what the future has in store for me come next roster change period.”

This decision is quite a turn from what Fero had originally announced back when he had first been designated as a substitute player. At the time, his goal was to find a new team to represent at the next roster change window, which is the one currently in effect.

However, seeing as he’s not found a suitable destination, it’s hard to blame him for sticking with 100T and sitting out CWL Fort Worth, considering that he still has the security of a contract and a healthy salary. 

Prior to being dropped for Priestahh, Fero was part of the squad that qualified 100 Thieves for the CWL Pro League.

However, as his tweet above reveals, Fero’s goal is to ultimately part ways with 100 Thieves in hope of finding a Pro League team that would take him in.

After all, he’s not a sub-par player by an means and no one is really doubting his ability; in fact, he was a major reason for why 100T was able to qualify for the Pro League in the first place. 

Members of the org have revealed that the main reasons he was dropped from the starting squad was to help star man Kenny ‘Kenny’ Williams adjust to a much more suitable role and to resolve some in-game issues the team was having. 

Now that he’s made his intentions clear, the earliest Fero could find himself on a new team would be in April, as the next roster lock lift will take place April 5 – 22.

Dr Disrespect rants to himself for 10 mins after accidentally muting mic

Streaming superstar Dr Disrespect accidentally muted his microphone just as he began a legendary-looking rant about Call of Duty: Warzone, and may inadvertently have created a new trend in streaming at the same time.

Doc is undoubtedly one of the biggest personalities out there on the internet, but like anyone else, he can still fall victim to the treacherous mindset of getting tilted. 

Like all professionals, he usually does a good job of keeping the speed, violence, and momentum directed at opponents. But during a recent stream, he experienced one Warzone death due to flashbangs too many and took it out on his desk instead.

With a slam that would make fellow streaming star, xQc, proud, the Two-Time let his desk have it just as he was entering into what seemed like quite the heated exposition on the role of flashes grenades in Warzone.

The only problem was that his smack muted the microphone and he didn’t realize it, leading to what may have been the best mime impression on Twitch for the next 10-plus minutes.

It genuinely seems like the 2019 Streamer of the Year had no idea he was basically just talking to himself, as you can even see him going into bits and continuing to rant before he unmutes. It seemed to work out fine though, as he made a pretty penny in donations from viewers telling him they couldn’t hear.

Was it really a mistake, or a bold new strategy in streaming?

“Well, that’s what happens when you slam sh*t around, you know?” Doc reflected. “I think I got like, $100 bucks from people telling me I’m muted. Hey Alex, next time mute me for like two hours, yeah.”

If Dr Disrespect hasn’t chosen a Halloween costume for this year, maybe going trick-or-treating as a mime might be his best option at this point.

Speaking of Halloween, the good doctor’s annual Doctober costume contest is nearing its conclusion as hundreds of fans have submitted their best cosplays, hoping for a chance to be selected among the best. The winners are due to be announced in the upcoming few days, but you can check out some of the best costume submissions so far here.
