Call of Duty stars Fero and Tommey announce stacked teams for CWL Finals

With the CWL Finals Call of Duty event fast approaching, Thomas ‘Tommey’ Trewren and Maurice ‘Fero’ Henriquez have announced who they will each be teaming with for the final open bracket tournament of the season. 

The upcoming CWL Finals in Miami will be split into two parts – one will be a $1.25 million Playoffs for the CWL Pro League, and the other an amateur open bracket with $150,000 on the line.

Because the Playoffs will be limited to only those who are on active rosters of qualified teams from the Pro League, there will be a lot of professional players who will have to play in the open bracket, because they’re either not on pro teams or have been designated as substitutes. 

One of those players is Tommey, who started the Black Ops 4 season with Team Reciprocity but stepped away from competing midway through May.

Having decided to return to the thrills of competition, the veteran player revealed on July 3 who his team will consist of at CWL Finals. 

  • Thomas ‘Tommey’ Trewren
  • Martin ‘Chino’ Chino
  • Nicholas ‘Proto’ Maldonado
  • Kaden ‘Exceed’ Stockdale
  • Byron ‘Linney’ Linney

One of the more stacked teams that Tommey and co. will have to compete against at the tournament will be the squad that Fero’s chosen to team with.

Following his short and disastrous spell with Team Envy, the ex-100 Thieves man was unable to join another Pro League team ahead of the third and final roster change window, and has now announced his open bracket team for the $150,000 tournament. 

  • Maurice ‘Fero’ Henriquez
  • Jared ‘Nagafen’ Harrell
  • Tyler ‘FeLo’ Johnson
  • Saul “Parzelion” Masse-Siguenza
  • Eric ‘JetLi’ Phan

For most of these players, if not all, placing well at CWL Finals will be their only hope for qualifying for the CWL Championship in August – the most prestigious tournament of every season.

The teams that finish in the top-16 will all clinch a spot for Champs, with the remaining 16 slots filled by the teams currently in the Pro League. 

Of the ten players listed above, only three have a chance to make it to Champs if they don’t qualify in Miami – Exceed, Nagafen, and FeLo.

All three are currently substitutes for Pro League teams – Midnight Esports, Gen.G, and Evil Geniuses respectively – and could technically still be rotated back into the starting squad in time for the grand tournament in August. 

CWLCWL Finals will take place July 19-21 in Miami, Florida.

Both the Pro League Playoffs and the open bracket tournament of CWL Finals will take place July 19-21 at the Miami Beach Convention Center in Miami, Florida.

Prior to the event kicking off, the eight Pro League teams that failed to qualify directly for Playoffs will compete in a Play-In tournament on July 19, from which two more teams will advance to the Playoffs that weekend.

Hilarious Black Ops Cold War bug literally breaks Fireteam Dirty Bomb

A game-breaking Black Ops Cold War bug is suspending players above the map on Fireteam Dirty Bomb, rendering them useless for the entire match.

As with any new release, Black Ops Cold War has had its fair share of bugs and glitches. From players falling through the map to a permanent thermal overlay, its obvious Treyarch overlooked a few elements of the game before releasing the title.

However, if a bug is not game-breaking, players will usually laugh it off and let it go. It’s only when a glitch renders players completely useless that a bug starts to become more frustrating than funny.

Well, that’s exactly the type of bug some players are experiencing on Fireteam Dirty Bomb and it’s fair to say they’re not pleased about it.

Fireteam Dirty Bomb is the new mode released with Black Ops Cold War.

Game-breaking bug suspends players above the map

A video posted to the Black Ops Cold War subreddit reveals a game-breaking bug occurring on Fireteam Dirty Bomb. The glitch suspends the players above the map for the entire match with them unable to move or participate.

On top of this, it appears the entire game mode is broken with teams being bigger than they’re are supposed to be and textures not loading in.

As you can see, the players are left floating above the map and are audibly frustrated at the issue. One of them even states: “I’d genuinely be surprised if they even had playtesters for this game.”

It’s worth noting the players can scope down onto the map below but they’re completely locked in place. Attempting to run will trigger the animation but no movement will occur.

Glitches can be entertaining in certain titles, especially when they do not heavily impact the gameplay experience. However, in competitive games like Call of Duty, a game-breaking bug can be extremely frustrating.

Fingers crossed Treyarch get this bug fixed as soon as possible so players don’t have to continue spectating the game from above the map.
