Changes announced for Team Envy CoD after CWL Anaheim disaster

Call of Duty player Maurice ‘Fero’ Henriquez has announced that he is a restricted free agent following his team’s performance at CWL Anaheim.

Fero replaced Adam ‘Assault’ Garcia on the squad back in April, with the team hoping to turn their fortunes around after some disappointing finishes in tournaments, and middling performances in the CWL Pro League.

However, with results not improving, and an appearance at CWL Anaheim that saw the team get eliminated in Losers Round 1 without winning a single map, it appears that Envy have opted to make a change to their lineup with just two major tournaments remaining in the 2019 season.

Fero and Team Envy crashed out of CWL Anaheim without winning a map.

Team Envy fell to 100 Thieves, Luminosity, Gen.G and Team Reciprocity, with all four teams dominating the “Boys in Blue,” sending Envy home on Saturday with a total 0-12 map count. 

Before CWL Anaheim had even concluded, Fero revealed that he had been made a restricted free agent by Team Envy, meaning that other organizations can now come in and make a bid for the player should they feel he would be a good addition to their roster.

It is believed that Fero’s move will kick off a hectic period of roster moves as teams attempt to solidify their lineup ahead of CWL Pro League Finals and the CWL Championships, the year’s two biggest events which take place in July and August respectively.

    CWL Pro League teams have just three days to make roster changes, with the window set to slam shut on June 20, so it’s expected that a number of organizations will be making frantic transfers during this three-day period.

Best Warzone kills against cheaters exploiting the Stim glitch

Taking matters into their own hands, some of Call of Duty: Warzone’s bravest players have, quite literally, gone out of their way to punish cheating exploiters who abuse the notorious Stim glitch.

As most Warzone fans have become familiar with by now, there is an unlimited Stim Shot glitch that pops into existence, gets patched out, and then returns every once in a while. The bug allows you to use an infinite amount of Stim Shots, enabling players to remain in the gas indefinitely and secure easy wins while those who play fairly die to the final circles.

Unfortunately, as time passes, more and more exploiters have become aware of the glitch and prone to abusing it. Fortunately, more and more players with competitive integrity have become aware of those exploiters and prone to exacting justice by punishing them.

While few things are more satisfying than a high-kill Warzone victory, one such thing is the cathartic sensation of a cheater being killed and therefore robbed of their illegitimate win. Highlighted by one of Warzone’s very best, Liam ‘Jukeyz’ James, here are the best kills against Stim glitch exploiters.

Unwilling to be denied their 100-kill victory, Jukeyz and his team got set up with self-revives, gas masks, and a UAV to go seek out and eliminate the exploiter in their lobby. Driving directly into the toxic gas, Jukeyz is able to hop out (as his driver is downed by the green cloud) and delete the prone cheater.

And Jukeyz isn’t alone in obliterating these exploiters. Reddit’s ‘thebigeasy31’ decimated the hubris of one such exploiter, who brashly thought they could start Stim glitching earlier in the game with a Most Wanted contact on his head. Instead, bigeasy gave him a bullet to the head.

And last, but certainly not least, Reddit’s ‘Millertime166’ took it upon themself to pull off a one-man vigilante act by seeking out a Stim glitcher on Rebirth Island. Heading into the gas, copping a Gas Mask, and getting into a vehicle, Millertime used their last remaining HP to kill off a silly cheater who was hidden behind a wall.

While the Stim glitch was supposed to have been removed during the January 13 patch, some believe it persists, albeit in a more limited fashion. Nevertheless, most expect it could possibly make a return at some point.

If it does come back, these players prove that the game’s developers are not the only ones who can counteract cheaters. Like those who killed off exploiters who were abusing the Promenade truck glitch, Verdansk’s finest have begun carrying out their own brand of justice.
