Call of Duty star Patrick ‘ACHES’ Price has revealed two of the biggest regrets of his competitive career –  both revolving around his compLexity Gaming/Evil Geniuses’ dynasty run. 

The two-time CoD World Champion hosted a Twitter AMA on March 22, answering a wide array of questions from fans and fellow pro players.

While some questions wanted to know about his favorite type of late night fast food, where he had planned for a vacation or just how he continues to torment OpTic Gaming year after year, others took a deep dive into his gaming history.

The CoD legend had already answered plenty of benign questions before being quizzed about the ‘absolute worst decision’ he had made in his career. Aches swiftly answered: “Not caring if I kept my col [compLexity]/eg [Evil Genuises] team together.”

The two-time World Champion had been referring to how his dynasty Evil Geniuses roster had broken up at the end of Call of Duty: Ghosts when Damon ‘Karma’ Barlow departed the active roster.

Another fan also asked ACHES about the worst mistake he had made when it came to putting a roster together.

The Team Envy captain responded: “Adding TuQuick to coL instead of clay,” referring to when the team had the chance to pick up James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks but opted for Aaron ‘TuQuick ’Chang following the benching of Damod ‘FEARS’ Abney during the Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 season.

ACHES also answered some typical questions from fans that pop up during any question and answer session. The two-time world champion revealed his all-time favorite teammates as Ian ‘Crimsix’ Porter, Tyler ‘TeePee’ Polchow and Adam “Assault” Garcia.

He also answered questions about which current pros he would like to team with if given the chance. 

While ACHES responded that he had teamed with almost everyone he’d like to, he revealed that if he had to choose some names, he’d pick OpTic Gaming’s Brandon ‘Dashy’ Otell and Luminosity’s Peirce ‘Gunless’ Hillman.

While ACHES kept the spiciness of the AMA on the low, giving fans a behind the scenes look into his career makes a change from some of his other social media posts, with his outspoken demeanour often dividing the Call of Duty community.

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 takes some of the best parts of previous games and puts them under one umbrella.

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 – Rebirth

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 Rebirth, 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 Rebirth. 

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.
