Coming hot off a 3-1 victory over Heretics in the CWL Pro League, Team Envy captain Patrick ‘ACHES’ Price took a dig at his former teammate Anthony ‘NAMELESS’ Wheeler, now sitting on the analyst desk.

The pair last teamed together under Evil Geniuses, in the first half of the CoD: WWII season, but after being dropped from the team, NAMELESS effectively retired.

Meanwhile, with their new roster, ACHES went on to win the 2018 Call of Duty World Championship – his second in his long career.

NAMELESS’ last team in competitive Call of Duty with Evil Geniuses, playing with ACHES.

On Twitter, NAMELESS had been particularly critical of Envy’s role changes, suggesting Price had “swindled” his teammates so he could run his preferred weapon.

After hearing NAMELESS’ suggestions and criticism, the two-time world champion took his chance in the post match interview to silence Wheeler.

“I put this guy on the desk, won a world championship,” ACHES said mockingly, “so, I’m not worried about it, this guy doesn’t know what he’s talking about.”

As NAMELESS began to beckon inaudibly from the desk, ACHES simply dismissed his ramblings, concluding “the guy’s insane.”

After the broadcast returned to the analyst desk, NAMELESS got in the last word, claiming “he’s going to up here with me soon, we’re going to have a five person desk.”

Despite his jokes, ACHES and Envy don’t look like they’re planning on retirement any time soon. Their current record in the Pro League is only narrowly missing out on playoff contention, holding the same 7-6 record as 4th place Splyce.

Their next match, against 100 Thieves, will likely be their most challenging yet though, and ACHES will need to carry his confidence from the Heretics match through their remaining fixtures, if they are to secure top four.

Call of Duty Mobile is gearing up for the start of Season 1: New Order, which will launch in the last week of January. So, here’s what we know so far in terms of patch notes. 

Even though CoD Mobile has plenty of content in it already, the devs have been rolling out regular updates since launch to keep things fresh. 

These updates are, largely, big new season patches that bring a new theme to the game as well as new characters, new maps, and of course, new equipment like weapons and perks. 

With the first update of 2021, the devs are resetting the counter, so it won’t be Season 14 or Season 15 moving forward. Instead, we’re getting Season 1: New Order, and there are a few flashbacks coming. So, here’s what you need to know.

CoD Mobile New Order season 14 release date & time

In terms of when the update will be going live, the devs haven’t yet confirmed a date or time, at the time of writing. They’re still dropping clues.

In their January 21 community update, though, they said that the new season will be starting in the last week of the month, with Tuesday, January 26 being used as a date for things potentially kicking off.

Now, that’s not confirmed as we’ve already mentioned, but that day would make sense. It’s also the conclusion of the previous season’s farewell event, so things could easily roll out. We’ll just have to wait and see.

New weapons – FAMAS & SKS

As for new weapons, again, they’re still being cryptic, but it doesn’t take a mastermind to figure out what is being teased.

Two weapons are coming – one resembling, and sounding a lot like the FAMAS from previous CoD titles. There is also another that looks like the SKS that has featured in Modern Warfare and Black Ops releases.

As familiar as they are to longtime CoD fans, these weapons may have their names changed in CoD Mobile. The devs like to have their spin on things, after all.

New map for CoD Mobile 2021 Season 1 – Reclaim

In terms of a new map, again, that’s been teased by the devs. However, if you’re new to CoD Mobile, you might not instantly know what is being teased.

The teaser does bear a resemblance to Picadilly from Modern Warfare, and some fans suggested that it might be something new altogether. However, the answer is a little simpler than that.

The new map for Season 1: New Order will actually be Reclaim, the map from the Season 13 test server. How do we know? Well, there’s a big Christmas tree in the middle of the teaser that lines up what we’ve seen from Reclaim. 

Who is the new character in CoD Mobile Season 1 New Order?

For those fans who like to get a new character at the start of the new season, that tradition should continue here, even with the change to Season 1.

Who will be, though? Well, the devs have teased it being Raul Menendez – who should be a familiar face to Black Ops fans. Though, it hasn’t been confirmed just yet. So, we’ll have to wait and see.

As for bug fixes, weapon nerfs, and buffs, they haven’t been revealed by the devs just yet and should filter out just prior to the start of the new season.

Once they’re here, and we’ve got more confirmed information about Season 1: New Order, we’ll update this post so you won’t miss anything.
