ACHES, Slasher, Parasite and more discuss potential changes to the Black Ops 4 CWL map rotation

Call of Duty pro players have been analysing, critiquing and suggesting changes to the CWL V1 ruleset ever since it was announced on October 26.

Most of the conversation has centered around which weapons, items and Specialists they believe should or should not be permitted in competitive play, but some has also concentrated on the map rotation.

Patrick ‘ACHES’ Price and Austin ‘SlasheR’ Liddicoat have already voiced their concerns about some of the maps included for various game modes and they were joined by a number of others during a discussion about the Hardpoint maps on October 28.

ACHES took to Twitter to suggest that both Hacienda and Morocco should be added to the rotation and, while some disagreed about Morocco, the general consensus was that Hacienda should be included.

ACHES seems to be particularly concerned about Summit being used for Hardpoint – something that Evil Geniuses’ Tyler ‘FeLo’ Johnson clearly agrees with.

During the same conversation, SlasheR and Christopher ‘Parasite’ Duarte debated over whether Contraband should be included, with Parasite saying that the ability to flank through the water, and the spawns, were issues – SlasheR agreed that the map has issues but believes it’s still the fifth best option for the mode in Black Ops 4.

The conversation didn’t end with Hardpoint, though, as ACHES, FeLo and Embry ‘Bevils’ Bevil all agreed that Seaside Search and Destroy would be an issue, particularly will Specialists in the game.

“There’s nowhere you can move the B site to make it a good map either,” Team Envy’s coach stated. “Barrel part of the map is just way too congested for snd even if you moved the bombsite behind the building in the courtyard still no good for SnD.”

It will be interesting to see how the rules, and maps, change throughout the Black Ops 4 season, but it seems likely that the pro players will have to compete under the current limitations at CWL Las Vegas at least.

The $250,000 event will take place from December 7 – 9 and will be our first opportunity to see what the best players on Earth are capable of under LAN conditions.

MrDalekJD has opened up on his biggest wishes for Call of Duty: Warzone in the future on the CharlieIntel podcast, including more storytelling and a new map.

Jon ‘MrDalekJD’ Hutchinson is a beloved figure in the Call of Duty scene. Even though his content revolves around Zombies, he’s played the game for many years now, and the community values his opinions.

So, when asked on the CharlieIntel podcast what he’d like to see happen from Warzone in the future, people were listening. Spoiler alert, it’s in line with what most other players hope to see too.

“The thing with Warzone is they [got] pretty good, well it seemed at the time, really good at telling an underlying story that was being slowly unraveled every season,” he said. “It was all to do with the rockets and Bunker 11 and Bunker 10 and all that. It was amazing.”

“I think if they just continue with that, that’s enough to keep me happy,” he added. “But I do think we are due for a new map. I love Verdansk to pieces. It’s a fantastic map. Massive props to Infinity Ward and Raven on that because it’s incredible.”

“But I think it is time for Treyarch to step in and bring in a new Cold War-themed Warzone map,” he said. It’s something that most players want and expect, and it seems like it’s only a matter of time before it happens.

MrDalekJD isn’t alone in his views, especially when it comes to wanting a new map. Verdansk has been fantastic, but it’s become a little stale to veteran players, and the show must go on.

Black Ops Cold War has already been out for several months now. So, a new Warzone map can’t be too far away. However, there still has been no official word on when we can expect it.

Until then, all we can do is sit back, relax, and twiddle our thumbs while we wait.
