Call of Duty legend Ian ‘Crimsix’ Porter recently split with his long-time teammates in OpTic Gaming and is looking for a new home ahead of the Call of Duty franchising. Fans have been curious about the rifler’s future, but may have finally been given a key clue.

Crimsix is one of the biggest names in CoD and is the game’s winningest player with an astounding 32 Major championship wins.

With such an impressive accolade, it’s no surprise every fan of the game wants to know where he will end up, and things are beginning to point to a possible future in Dallas.

Crimsix most recently represented OpTic Gaming.

The American’s future has been shrouded in mystery after he announced his departure from OpTic on September 9, but things may have become clearer thanks to a tweet from the player.

“Texas Forever” tweeted Crimsix on October 7, possibly hinting at him staying in Texas, where the now confirmed Dallas franchise is located. He also deleted the tweet not long after the team announced their first signing, raising a few eyebrows as they had similar backgrounds in the images.

If Crimsix does make his way into the Dallas franchise he would be once again joining forces with CoD legend James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks, to form an incredibly scary lineup, even with just two players annouced.

The Dallas franchise is owned by Team Envy, leaving the spot in capable and experiences hands. There’s no doubt that most players would jump at the chance to join and that the team is capable of signing almost any player.

With Clayster already confirmed and Crimsix joining him, this team has the potential to be one of the best in the Call of Duty League.

The Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Beta is finally live on PlayStation 4 for those who pre-ordered digitally, and some people have been noticing that Treyarch sneakily implemented a feature meant to counter reverse boosting that wasn’t in the Alpha.

According to Twitter user and CoD insider @_TomHenderson_ and verified by Dexerto, Treyarch has made players invulnerable to all damage for a few seconds when they spawn in. While the feature has yet to be given an official explanation, or even acknowledged by the devs, this was almost certainly done to combat reverse-boosting.

For those that don’t know, Call of Duty games have skill-based matchmaking, which means that players of similar skill-levels are matched together in order to make a more balanced game. Unfortunately, many don’t like this option because it can make the game a bit tedious and annoying.

Because of this, players “reverse boost”, which basically means they’ll “kill themselves” intentionally immediately when they spawn so that they can trick the game into thinking they are lower-skilled, which then puts them in a lower-skilled lobbies.

Now, fans will have to wait a few seconds in order to “kill themselves” after they respawn. While this won’t completely fix reverse boosting, it will make a bit more annoying for those who do it.

Players who immediately try and kill themselves when they spawn will find that they won’t be able to.

If they are only carrying one piece of lethal equipment and they immediately attempt to kill themselves, they will have wasted it and will have to go into battle without one until they die and respawn.

Simply waiting a few seconds will, of course, allow you to continue to reverse boost to your heart’s content. That being said, if Treyarch sees that reverse boosting is still rampant by the time the full game comes out, it wouldn’t be surprising if they end up implementing even more counter-measures in order to stop those players.
