The Call of Duty League is officially underway, and players are competing at the highest level for money, pride and bragging rights. But who is the best player in the game?

Alongside huge veteran names such as Seth ‘Scump’ Abner and Ian ‘Crimsix’ Porter, there is a wide selection of young talent just looking to prove that they’re the best in the world. The likes of Dylan ‘Dylan’ Henderson and Chris ‘Simp’ Lehr were dominant towards the end of last season, but has that continued in Modern Warfare?

At CDL Launch Weekend in Minnesota, Dexerto spoke with a bunch of the pro players to ask them one simple question: who is the best in the game?

There’s only been one event so far, but pros seem pretty sure on who the best player in the game is.

Across eleven different pro players, the results were almost unanimous, with Atlanta FaZe’s Tyler ‘Abezy’ Pharris being tipped as the best in the game by seven of the group asked. Chicago Huntsmen’s Scump said that he’s “nuts,” and that some of what he does is “just disgusting.”

This sentiment was echoed by the likes of Dillon ‘Attach’ Price and teammate Simp, who were singing the praises of Abezy, who only went pro at the beginning of the Black Ops 4 season.

Elsewhere, Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper backed his Hunstmen teammates Peirce ‘Gunless’ Hillman and Alec ‘Arcitys’ Sanderson, describing their insane natural talent and knowledge of the game as “disgusting.”

Abezy became a world champion in 2019, his first year of competing.

Abezy’s long-time teammate Simp also got a few mentions for best player in the game by the likes of Paris Legion’s Matt ‘KiSMET’ Tinsley and Abezy himself, who was quick to gas up his Atlanta teammate.

There were two other names mentioned among the best – Adam ‘Assault’ Garcia of the Minnesota Røkkr said that teammate Adam ‘GodRX’ Brown is the best, while London Royal Ravens’ Jordan ‘Jurd’ Crowley bestowed the honor upon his teammate Dylan.

It’s still early days, so a lot could change, but it seems that for now everybody is playing catch-up with Abezy and his Atlanta FaZe side.

Black Ops Cold War bug removes grass on Cartel and players are loving it

Ever since the beta, Black Ops Cold War players have been complaining about the grass on the map Cartel, claiming that it’s too high and can block visibility. Now, a bug is eliminating that grass and players are apparently loving it. 

When the Black Ops Cold War beta first launched and players had the opportunity to try out all the maps the prerelease version had to offer, one stood out among the rest because of its terrible visibility: Cartel. While the outskirts are fine and pretty open, the center is generally considered a nightmare because of incredibly tall grass that blocks sightlines.

Ever since then, fans have been complaining about the visibility and when the game launched, nothing about the visibility was changed in any drastic way. Now, all of those complaints are being resolved in Black Ops Cold War – all thanks to a bug.

According to a few Reddit posts, fans have been experiencing a bug on Cartel that essentially removes the extremely tall grass. As one can see from the pictures, the glitch gives the map a way more open feeling and allows players to see the center more easily than the normal version.

Response to the no-grass version has been overwhelmingly positive, with some people calling the bug “beautiful” and “how Cartel should be.” User bobagolf pointed out in one of the more popular posts that it looked so nice that it “makes it look like the version with the bushes should be the bugged version.”

To be clear, it’s unknown whether or not this glitch is new. Some players were reporting that they got it “early on” but considering at least three separate posts were added to Reddit talking about it in the span of 24 hours, it seems like, at the very least, it is now happening more frequently.

Normally, it’s easy to hope for a quick fix from the developers, but considering most players seem to be in love with the version, it may be in everyone’s best interest if Treyarch just makes it a permanent feature of the map and removes the grass entirely. Only time will tell what they’ll end up doing.
