Censor calls out Crimsix for saying he “sucks” and vows to win again

New York Subliners pro Doug ‘Censor’ Martin is full of confidence heading into the Call of Duty Launch Weekend, vowing that he will be a champion again, despite fellow pros mockery.

The winningest player of all time, Ian ‘Crimsix’ Porter is never one to keep his opinions to himself, and has been a vocal critic of Censor’s ability in the past.

Censor, who is returning from retirement for the second time for the inaugural season of the Call of Duty League, is using the criticism as motivation. Having failed to win a tournament since the Advanced Warfare season in 2014, he’s desperate to get back on top.

Censor - YouTubeCensor left FaZe Clan to pursue his dream of competing in professional CoD again, joining the New York Subliners.

Although he’s not confirmed to be a starting player on the Subliners’ squad yet, Martin hasn’t been slacking, and is practicing at any opportunity he gets.

During a series of practice ’10s’ matches against Crimsix and fellow pros, the 2x world champion wasn’t exactly complimentary about Censor’s play.

In response, Censor spliced together a number of clips, including one where his team beat Empire handily. “I love when my friends like Crimsix shit on me and say that I suck,” he tweeted, “that’s the reason why I was and will be a champion again.”

Although Censor only managed 15 kills in his team’s 250-137 victory, his time in the hardpoint was over two minutes, so clearly his role is not to rack up the kills, but to ensure the objective is held down.

Meanwhile, Crimsix only managed 16 kills in the same map, as Censor’s teammates took care of the kills department – notably Crimsix’s Empire teammate, Cuyler ‘Huke’ Garland.

It’s only friendly rivalry between the two seasoned competitors, but Censor clearly still has a chip on his shoulder from the dismissal of other pro players. He hasn’t proved himself capable of winning again yet, but he has more than proved his dedication to practice so far.

Of course, these are only online matches and are not being played in their proper teams, so it doesn’t necessarily reflect what would happen at an event.

Bizarre Black Ops Cold War bug gives players free killstreaks

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War has officially dropped and millions of players are getting to grips with it, working out the new maps and weapons and theorizing how certain aspects could fit into Warzone when the game becomes fully integrated.

One thing that has seen a massive overhaul, though, is the scorestreaks system. Rather than having to go on a long streak of kills to earn your rewards, scorestreaks now continue to build up through lives.

The jury is still out on what the general perception is of such a drastic change, but for now, there may be bigger issues regarding streaks that need to be addressed.

While it seems to be in isolated cases, Black Ops Cold War might be randomly giving players free scorestreaks without even earning them.

Streaks have been an integral part of Call of Duty games for years.

As you can see below in this clip from CoD streamer DiamondRyce, he gets killed while playing on Satellite, and is greeted with a very special gift upon respawning.

In a match where he and his teammates are being somewhat dominated, the announcer says that there’s a hostile Attack Helicopter entering the map before respawning and getting points for destroying a chopper.

Not only that, but he then starts earning Attack Helicopter kills despite having definitely not called one in, and the symbol on the side of the screen is even highlighted to suggest he earned it.

Obviously, Ryce was just as confused as the enemy likely was, watching their high-end scorestreak go rogue and turn on themself and their team, but he likely won’t complain at the free kills.

The bigger question now is, how did this happen? Did DiamondRyce accidentally find a legitimate exploit that lets you steal enemy streaks, or is it a pure accident that can’t be forced and recreated?

Either way, it’s something Treyarch will be looking at and trying to fix in the coming updates, so hopefully it’s sorted sooner rather than later.
