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.

CoD Mobile Season 1 New Order early patch notes: Weapons, new map, release date, more

Call of Duty Mobile is gearing up for the start of Season 1: New Order, which will launch in the last week of January. So, here’s what we know so far in terms of patch notes. 

Even though CoD Mobile has plenty of content in it already, the devs have been rolling out regular updates since launch to keep things fresh. 

These updates are, largely, big new season patches that bring a new theme to the game as well as new characters, new maps, and of course, new equipment like weapons and perks. 

With the first update of 2021, the devs are resetting the counter, so it won’t be Season 14 or Season 15 moving forward. Instead, we’re getting Season 1: New Order, and there are a few flashbacks coming. So, here’s what you need to know.

CoD Mobile takes some of the best parts of previous games and puts them under one umbrella.

CoD Mobile New Order season 14 release date & time

In terms of when the update will be going live, the devs haven’t yet confirmed a date or time, at the time of writing. They’re still dropping clues.

In their January 21 community update, though, they said that the new season will be starting in the last week of the month, with Tuesday, January 26 being used as a date for things potentially kicking off.

Now, that’s not confirmed as we’ve already mentioned, but that day would make sense. It’s also the conclusion of the previous season’s farewell event, so things could easily roll out. We’ll just have to wait and see.

New weapons – FAMAS & SKS

As for new weapons, again, they’re still being cryptic, but it doesn’t take a mastermind to figure out what is being teased.

Two weapons are coming – one resembling, and sounding a lot like the FAMAS from previous CoD titles. There is also another that looks like the SKS that has featured in Modern Warfare and Black Ops releases.

As familiar as they are to longtime CoD fans, these weapons may have their names changed in CoD Mobile. The devs like to have their spin on things, after all.

New map for CoD Mobile 2021 Season 1 – Reclaim

In terms of a new map, again, that’s been teased by the devs. However, if you’re new to CoD Mobile, you might not instantly know what is being teased.

The teaser does bear a resemblance to Picadilly from Modern Warfare, and some fans suggested that it might be something new altogether. However, the answer is a little simpler than that.

The new map for Season 1: New Order will actually be Reclaim, the map from the Season 13 test server. How do we know? Well, there’s a big Christmas tree in the middle of the teaser that lines up what we’ve seen from Reclaim. 

Who is the new character in CoD Mobile Season 1 New Order?

For those fans who like to get a new character at the start of the new season, that tradition should continue here, even with the change to Season 1.

Who will be, though? Well, the devs have teased it being Raul Menendez – who should be a familiar face to Black Ops fans. Though, it hasn’t been confirmed just yet. So, we’ll have to wait and see.

As for bug fixes, weapon nerfs, and buffs, they haven’t been revealed by the devs just yet and should filter out just prior to the start of the new season.

Once they’re here, and we’ve got more confirmed information about Season 1: New Order, we’ll update this post so you won’t miss anything.
