Following the end of the CWL Championship 2018, 100 Thieves founder and CEO Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag has announced he is looking for a competitive Call of Duty team.

The former professional player has seen great success since creating his own organization, 100 Thieves, in April 2016, with teams competing in League of Legends, Fortnite and Clash Royale.

While Nadeshot did previously have a Call of Duty squad, acquiring the KingPapey team during the Black Ops III season, the roster did not perform well and only achieved the nickname ‘100 Losses,’ leading to its dissolution.

Despite the disappointing performance, Nadeshot has been vocal about wanting to return to his roots and pick up a new roster for the upcoming Black Ops IIII season, ideally with one of the players on OpTic’s 2017 championship squad.

Now the World War II season is officially over, with Evil Geniuses taking this year’s title, Nadeshot has revealed he is officially looking for players to create a 100 Thieves roster for Black Ops IIII.

He has encouraged players to contact him via direct message on Twitter who would be interested in joining the organization, whether they are a seasoned professional or an up and coming player.

With 2017 world champion Damon ‘Karma’ Barlow not currently being part of a roster, and both Seth ‘Scump’ Abner and Ian ‘Crimsix’ Porter finishing in a shocking 17th-24th place at the CWL Championship, could we see one of the old OpTic squad join 100 Thieves?

Black Ops Cold War leak reveals new Christmas-themed Nuketown

The holidays are right around the corner and it appears as though Black Ops Cold War will be getting into the festive spirit as new leaks have revealed a limited-time version of Nuketown ‘84 on the way.

Nuketown has seen a number of complete makeovers throughout the years. What started as a simple, close-quarters map in Black Ops 1, has been revamped in many unique ways. From a futuristic remake to the latest 80’s themed design and plenty more.

The fan-favorite map isn’t stopping there, however. New leaks and even a quirky bug have all pointed towards a festive takeover coming into effect very soon. There might even be multiple versions of the battlefield all in-game at the one time.

Christmas is coming to Black Ops Cold War in a big way. Not only will Nuketown be covered with festive decorations, but there also appears to be a night-time variant coming as well.

From a leaked preview image of the Nuketown ‘84 map, we’re given our first look at the map from an all-new perspective. Rather than the beaming hot sun lighting things up, Nuketown looks a little different here. A dark sky keeps things mellow while Christmas lights aim to get you in the holiday spirit.

A few Christmas reefs are scattered around while tinsel is layered across almost every surface. From the one angle, however, there doesn’t seem to be any kind of snow or other major difference. Purely just decorations on an otherwise standard Nuketown ‘84.

While the leaked image comes from a reliable source that’s revealed a wide array of content in the past, there’s more to it than just that. Oddly enough, a bizarre glitch from November 25 actually let players see the Christmas decorations in-game for a split moment.

The yet unannounced version of the map randomly came into effect mid-game for one lucky player. They were caught off guard by the interior of a house but the decorations remained in place, even after death.

That should clear up any caution as to whether the Christmas-themed variant is real or not. While there’s no date locked in for this holiday takeover, we can obviously expect to see it in a matter of weeks as December draws to an end.

Nuketown seems to be the only map getting a festive makeover for now. Though there could always be some visual changes on the way for Warzone as well. We’ll have to wait and see.
