Competitive Call of Duty is just not the same unless there is the usual dose of trash talk between highly competitive players.

While usually the trash talk is reserved for the tradition back-and-forth on social media between players and their respective fans, sometimes things can escalate into an in-person confrontation.

This was the case in the recently developed situation involving eUnited’s James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks and Rise Nation’s Daniel ‘Loony’ Loza at the CWL Pro League on May 31st.

The pair exchanged words after the teams had just concluded a tightly contested match, in which eUnited came back from 0-2 down to hand Rise their first loss of Stage 2.

A video of the eUnited players’ reaction after completing the reverse sweep shows Clayster extremely fired up as he yelled out expletives across the stage at the Rise Nation players.

This seemed to have drawn the ire of Loony, who can be seen exchanging words with Clayster as the teams did their customary handshakes after the match.

Clayster was interviewed after the match and he had some choice words to say about Loony, saying that he is “definitely the sorest loser I’ve ever played against.”

Not getting the chance to speak on the same platform as Clayster, Loony took to Twitter to share his perspective on the situation.

Of course this is not the first time these two long-time CoD veterans have butted heads. The two went at each other on social media several months ago after eUnited had just swept Rise Nation in a Pool Play match at CWL Birmingham.

This development will be worth keeping an eye on as the two teams will meet again in the CWL Pro League on July 10th, in what very likely could have huge Playoff implications.

“Broken” Warzone skin is too hard to see & players aren’t happy about it

Call of Duty: Warzone’s Season 5 Roze “Rook” operator is maddening players, as the small, dark silhouette is sometimes impossible to detect before getting killed.

Verdansk is a diverse environment and Modern Warfare’s operators are fittingly blessed with a varied assortment of camouflages. With the map spanning green, forested areas, dry, muted plains, and dark, indoor rooms, there is a lot of different scenery to keep track of.

Within the map’s obscured nooks and crannies, one Season 5 operator skin has become a particular nuisance for players. Upon hitting Tier 100 on the preceding season’s Battle Pass, the Roze “Rook” skin was unlocked, offering fans a jet-black, sleek character to rock across Modern Warfare’s multiplayer and accompanying battle royale.

With the prevalence of close-quarters combat in dimly lit indoor spaces, players have begun pointing out just how impossible it is to see Roze in the game.

Roze’s Rook skin is easy to see in the light, but practically invisible in the dark.

In a screenshot shown by ‘bleedblue_knetic’ on Reddit, there appears to be an empty cell in the subterranean jails located below the Prison POI. But their teammate, ‘Deadalus,’ is highlighted as being right behind the cell’s bars. 

Even knowing someone is technically there, it is practically impossible to discern a character model behind the partial obstructions.

I’ve never really seen anyone talk about it, but does anyone else think Roze skin is not okay? from CODWarzone

As such, bleedblue_knetic’s post is titled simply: “I’ve never really seen anyone talk about it, but does anyone else think Roze skin is not okay?” In response, the vast majority of commenters agreed that this skin is an issue and is getting widely used by sweaty players because of how difficult it is to see in Warzone’s darker environments.

One commenter summed it up succinctly: “It’s one of the most broken skins in the game.”

Another Redditor, ‘OJbeforethebadstuff,’ also replied with his own example of the Rook skin’s seeming invisibility. While their video settings appear to lack more brightness than necessary, it still demonstrates just how deadly Roze’s camouflage can be.

 

As seen in the video, the screen is darker than most players’ displays, but, nonetheless, the Roze that kills him is frankly invisible. It isn’t until you watch the kill cam that you realize there was a person actually standing there amongst the tables, waiting to secure an easy elimination.

Usually, hacking is raised as a possibility when you’re killed by someone you can’t see. But, in this case, it appears that the Rook skin is simply svelte and dark enough to blend into indoor backgrounds perfectly.

Her hitbox isn’t technically smaller than others’ and she does appear in an obvious contrast when in bright environments, but so much of Warzone is played in dimmed locations that this is as meta a skin as the game has seen. Infinity Ward has yet to respond to complaints and it remains to be seen if some of the game’s niche visibility issues can be resolved.
