Professional Call of Duty player Dillon ‘Attach‘ Price was featured on a national news show on CNN, but not for the reasons you’d expect. 

While talk of politics is not commonly found in the world of professional gaming and esports, there are those that will crack a joke here and there about governmental leaders, especially the President of the United States.

Case in point – Attach, a world champion CoD pro who called the President “the most successful troll of all time” in a tweet on June 22.

His tweet came in response to one that the President had put out, which included an animated cover of Time Magazine suggesting that his policies and ideology could far outlive his Presidency.

While Attach may not have thought much about his tweet, since he’s hardly the first to say such a thing about the current President, the post ended up being featured on CNN, one of the biggest news outlets in the US and around the world.

The tweet put out by the President, and other comments he had made relating to the subject, were being discussed on a political commentary show when suddenly Attach’s tweet was flashed across the screen, and was even read out-loud by the host.

The moment was captured by the CoD pro and posted on his Instagram account, along with the caption “Welp, I was on CNN yesterday lol”

Attach and Evil Geniuses walking CWL Pro League tightrope

While getting a tweet featured on CNN might be a once-in-a-lifetime experience for Attach, his current situation in the CWL Pro League is far from ideal.

He and his Evil Geniuses squad are currently 8-13 in Division A, and are mathematically eliminated from finish in the top-four, meaning that they cannot clinch an automatic entry into the $1.25 million Playoffs at CWL Finals.

However, EG will still have a chance of making it into the postseason, as the bottom-four teams from both divisions will compete against each other in a Play-In tournament, from which two squads will qualify for Playoffs.

Black Ops Cold War leak reveals new Christmas-themed Nuketown

The holidays are right around the corner and it appears as though Black Ops Cold War will be getting into the festive spirit as new leaks have revealed a limited-time version of Nuketown ‘84 on the way.

Nuketown has seen a number of complete makeovers throughout the years. What started as a simple, close-quarters map in Black Ops 1, has been revamped in many unique ways. From a futuristic remake to the latest 80’s themed design and plenty more.

The fan-favorite map isn’t stopping there, however. New leaks and even a quirky bug have all pointed towards a festive takeover coming into effect very soon. There might even be multiple versions of the battlefield all in-game at the one time.

Christmas is coming to Black Ops Cold War in a big way. Not only will Nuketown be covered with festive decorations, but there also appears to be a night-time variant coming as well.

From a leaked preview image of the Nuketown ‘84 map, we’re given our first look at the map from an all-new perspective. Rather than the beaming hot sun lighting things up, Nuketown looks a little different here. A dark sky keeps things mellow while Christmas lights aim to get you in the holiday spirit.

A few Christmas reefs are scattered around while tinsel is layered across almost every surface. From the one angle, however, there doesn’t seem to be any kind of snow or other major difference. Purely just decorations on an otherwise standard Nuketown ‘84.

While the leaked image comes from a reliable source that’s revealed a wide array of content in the past, there’s more to it than just that. Oddly enough, a bizarre glitch from November 25 actually let players see the Christmas decorations in-game for a split moment.

The yet unannounced version of the map randomly came into effect mid-game for one lucky player. They were caught off guard by the interior of a house but the decorations remained in place, even after death.

That should clear up any caution as to whether the Christmas-themed variant is real or not. While there’s no date locked in for this holiday takeover, we can obviously expect to see it in a matter of weeks as December draws to an end.

Nuketown seems to be the only map getting a festive makeover for now. Though there could always be some visual changes on the way for Warzone as well. We’ll have to wait and see.
