eUnited professional Call of Duty player James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks has released a video addressing the controversy surrounding his relationship with teammate Jordan ‘JKap’ Kaplan, as well as the team’s recent roster change. 

A day after being on the receiving end of some serious insults from JKap on Twitter, Clayster took to YouTube to give his side of the story and express his perspective.

In that Twitter engagement, Clay fired back with some shots of his own towards the 2015 and 2016 World Champion. 

In his video, the eUnited star explained that he has been working on keeping his composure, but also because he felt that he had done nothing wrong to deserve such personal attacks. 

“I’m not sure why he’s resorted to taking personal attacks at me, when publicly I haven’t said anything about him negatively,” he said. “I haven’t said he was the reason I was going to get dropped. I haven’t said he wasn’t performing. It’s been broad general strokes about the whole team.”

eUnited/TwitterClayster is not exactly clear on why JKap has chosen to personally attack him after being dropped from the main squad.

The Twitter spat between the veterans on March 21 saw JKap accuse Clayster of being arrogant and self-centered, to which Clay responded directly. 

“I don’t understand why you joined the team in the first place if you felt that way,” he said. “I hope I can change your mind at some point, but in reality, I don’t really care. You can think what you want to think.”

Contrary to JKap’s claims that not a lot of Clayster’s teammates enjoyed working with him since the days of Advanced Warfare, the latter revealed that there had only been previous issues with Enable and Prestinni – which is a much smaller proportion than suggested. 

ZimbioClayster refuted JKap’s claims that a lot of his teammates since Advanced Warfare did not enjoy teaming with him.

Clayster ended things by clearing the air, suggesting that he does not have any spite for JKap – despite their clash.

“I don’t have anything against JKap, I really don’t,” he said. “He doesn’t like me, that’s cool, I guess we’re not friends anymore. But I don’t hate him, I don’t despise him, I wasn’t trying to get him dropped on his neck. I wasn’t sitting there scheming behind his back, I didn’t do any of that.”

MLGFormer eUnited Cadet and sub Simp will be joining the main squad for next week’s CWL Pro League matches.

As for eUnited’s recent roster change, which saw substitute Chris ‘Simp’ Lehr promoted to the starting lineup in place of JKap, Clayster shared his thoughts at having the electrifying up-and-comer join the main team and also revealed the players’ new roles going back into the CWL Pro League.

“Really excited to have Simp on the squad, and really excited to see what he and aBeZy could do with their submachine guns,” he explained. “Going to move Prestinni move to the Maddox with me and have Alex stay on the ICR.”

With the cross-divisional phase of the CWL Pro League set to kick off, eUnited will be returning to action on March 25 and have matches lined up against Evil Geniuses, UYU, Luminosity Gaming, and Red Reserve.

Black Ops Cold War leaks suggest new ‘Dropkick’ game mode coming soon

A brand new Black Ops Cold War game mode, named ‘Dropkick’ and featuring nukes, has surfaced in-game and looks set to be added by Treyarch in the near future. 

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is rapidly closing in on the inception of its first season of content, with developers Treyarch promising a year of incredible support.

We have already seen new game modes in Black Ops Cold War, mainly in the form of Fireteam Dirty Bomb, a 40 player Uranium fuelled arena of chaos. The four-team playlist has been widely praised by the community, joining modes like Fracture and Control on the list of Treyarch-created game modes.

It seems that Black Ops Cold War fans are set to receive another unprecedented game mode, at least if recent in-game leaks are anything to go off.

Fireteam Dirty Bomb is a 40-player four-team mode that has become very popular in Black Ops Cold War.

A pre-match loading screen in Black Ops Cold War appears to have released plenty of details about the new mode, which will be called ‘Dropkick’ – barring any last-minute changes from Treyarch.

While the images across the middle of the screen advertise Fireteam Dirty Bomb, the message across the bottom of the loading page gives us our first hints at what Dropkick could entail.

It reads: “If you die while your team is holding the objective you won’t respawn until the carrier is eliminated.”

Other in-game leaks have indicated that Dropkick will revolve around nuclear weapons and codes.

While details remain scarce (obviously), the description of the mode reads: “Gain access to launch codes while holding the objective in Dropkick to deploy a powerful nuke and declare victory.”

It appears that a nuke drop will end matches of Dropkick in Black Ops Cold War.

It goes without saying that there’s no guarantee we’ll see Dropkick in BOCW anytime soon. Until we receive official confirmation from Treyarch these leaks remain very much unconfirmed.

However, it is certainly indicative of Treyarch working on new game modes, so keep your eyes peeled on Black Ops Cold War in the near future.
