Team Envy Call of Duty captain Patrick ‘ACHES’ Price has revealed which changes he would like to see made to the CoD World League competitive ruleset for the upcoming Black Ops 4 season.
The first version of the CWL ruleset for Black Ops 4 was revealed on October 26, with many aspects of it being heavily debated among the competitive CoD community.
ACHES, who is arguably the most outspoken of all the pro players, was quick to point out which parts of the ruleset he did not agree with, and now has offered his version of what he feels should be the competitive format.
“Some map/rule/game suggestions for CWL and Treyarch. Any other changes are pretty much altering how they designed the game, which isn’t my place to suggest,” he tweeted. “So these are small things I think would make the game feel much better competitively.”
Here are the maps that ACHES thinks should be implemented into the rotation for all three game modes:
- Contraband/Summit (Pick 1)
- Search and Destroy
- Firing Range/Morocco/Seaside (Pick 1)
Noticeably missing from the list above is Slums Hardpoint, which ACHES addressed in a subsequent tweet.
“I love HP Slums just as much as anyone. But in 5v5 with how BO4 is played, it is not the same map nor does it play even remotely how it did in BO2. 5v5 makes that map far too easy to hold hills because the very limited amount of lanes on the map. It plays the words of any HP map.”
In addition to the revised map rotation, here is a full list of all changes that ACHES proposed be made to the current version of the ruleset.
While Treyarch and the CWL are unlikely to bend their will to every proposal and request, ACHES is a longtime veteran competitor with a strong championship pedigree, and his strong knowledge and understanding of the game could compel those with the power to make decisions listen.
However, with CWL Vegas just around the corner, it’s unlikely that any wholesale or fundamental changes will be made to the ruleset before then.
