Team Envy’s ACHES thinks Black Ops 4 movement speed needs changing

Reigning world champion, Patrick ‘ACHES’ Price, believes the current movement speed in Black Ops 4 is too fast.

The captain of Team Envy took to Twitter to share his thoughts that the overall speed of the game is currently too fast for the increased number of players on the map in competitive play, which increased from 8 to 10 this year.

He stated his belief that the current speed feels too “cluttery and fast” and that it should be decreased by at least 10%, if not more, to make the playing and viewing experience better.

This feeling that the game is too fast could come down to each team having an extra player, as the size of the maps haven’t changed from previous games.

100 Thieves’ Austin ‘SlasheR’ Liddicoat agreed with ACHES, saying he feels players are able to move across the map too quickly at the moment.

With Black Ops 4 being the first game to feature the new 5v5 format, but also including some throwback maps like Firing Range and Slums, it was always likely that players would have feedback, especially those who competed on the original maps on Black Ops 1 and Black Ops 2.

ACHES and Team Envy coach Embry ‘Bevils’ Bevil noted that getting across both Summit and Slums is significantly quicker in Black Ops 4 than on the original versions of each map.

As the game was only released on October 12 and players continue to share their thoughts on what does and doesn’t work, changes could still be made to Black Ops 4 before CWL Las Vegas, the first tournament of the season, which kicks off December 7. 

Could we see movement speed decreased before this?

Zlaner hilariously mocks Warzone fan after he & Dr Disrespect get killed

From tears of joy to tears of pain, a Call of Duty: Warzone player was thrilled to outduel Zlaner and Dr Disrespect until he realized that his Verdansk role model reacted by mocking him live on Twitch.

They say to never meet your heroes, but that can be hard to control when dropping into Verdansk’s randomized lobbies. As a perfect example, TikTok Warzone content creator and streamer, ‘maritimemucker,’ happened to encounter one of his longtime role models, Zlaner, on the roof of Superstore.

Mr. Mucker was running an SKS on the hot drop’s rooftop when a jump-shotting opponent rounded the corner, PP19 Bizon in hand. Mucker was able to turn, hit some jump shots himself, and outduel the foe. Excitedly, he quickly recognized that he had downed an upsurging Warzone star in Zlaner.

Afterward, maritimemucker was eager to check out his role model’s stream. But that ended up in heartbreaking fashion, as it turns out the popular streamer had mocked him right as he and the Doc were mowed down.

@maritimemuckerI don’t mean any disrespect Zlaner but you mocked my voice a lil ya know. Big fan and Kilo main now 💯 ##warzone ##Hotmics ##Zlaner ##drdisrespect ##COD♬ original sound – Maritime Mucker

As mucker shared on TIkTok and Reddit, he was shocked and grinning after killing Zlaner: “I got Zlaner, holy s**t … That is unreal … Huge fan of Z, I’ve been watching his s**t after he finally dropped that stupid Fortnite. Unreal.” 

But when he tuned into Z’s stream, he found out that the Warzone star wasn’t impressed with the 1v1 and had, instead, simply mocked Mucker’s death comms. 

Z’s duo, Dr Disrespect, was able to gun down the low-health maritimemucker, but was also quickly killed by the TikToker’s teammate. That gave Zlaner a chance to hear the death comms (as he dealt enough damage to be rewarded with the kill) and the tilted motivation to go high-pitched in mocking the smaller streamer’s excitement.

If you’re going to run into streamers in Warzone, it’ll probably be at Superstore.

In response, maritimemucker had to recognize that courtliness had been replaced by classic gamer banter: “Alright, I see how it is, Z.” 

So, of course, he proceeded not to insult Zlaner by words, but instead by alluding that the spectacled streamer looks like Bubbles from Trailer Park Boys.

The TikToker roasted Zlaner back by comparing him to Bubbles from Trailer Park Boys.

Ultimately, though, it’s all in good fun and maritimemucker still respects Z tremendously.

When a Reddit commenter suggested that streamers shouldn’t be looked up to, the mocked duelist replied that some Warzone stars deserve the hype: “There are some genuine great streamers out there, Z is one of them.”
