James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks has hit back at people complaining about a lack of pro player streams and content during the run-up to the Call of Duty World League Championships in Las Vegas. 

The tournament, which begins on December 7, is an important one for the 26-year old and he didn’t hold back on Twitter as he addressed his concerns with fan expectations on December 3.

Clayster said: “4 Days before the biggest tournament for the rest of the year and I see some people on the subreddit complaining about no streams and no content.

“Y’all gotta realize we’re basically being split down the middle; create content and win tournaments. It’s rly hard to do both well”.

This wasn’t the end of his explanation, either. 

eUnited’s Main AR Player went on to explain the challenge professional CoD players like himself are facing, trying to juggle between competing for major honors and appeasing a fanbase’s desire for content. 

He said: “Being so hard on the pros for not streaming makes it difficult to want to stream and create content”.

Clayster explained that the relationship between fans and pros is in danger of becoming quite toxic, where some pros are feeling “taken advantage of.”

Fans surely won’t want the players and teams they support to feel distracted ahead of CWL Las Vegas, but that seems to be how it is going down at the moment for some.

The competition will run through until December 9, with a prize pool of $250,000 up for grabs.

Clayster and his eUnited teammates have had a promising start to the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 season but the true challenge will come when the first LAN event finally gets underway.

The CoD Mobile devs have confirmed some of the new content coming in Season 11, including the next map and mode, as well as new perks. 

With Call of Duty Mobile Season 10 coming to a close, there has been plenty of interest about what Season 11 could have in store.

However, the devs have kept things mostly under wraps. There has been no test server ahead of the one-year anniversary update, and as for teasers and reveals, they’ve been kept to a minimum.

The devs have dropped small teasers in replies to fans about “surprises” coming in the new season, as well as hints about “multiple” weapons. However, they’ve now finally revealed their roadmap for the new season – and it includes some exciting new content.

Season 11’s roadmap appeared in-game on October 9 once players logged in for the first time, so if you quickly brushed it aside, you might have missed some key details about what’s coming up.

The biggest of which is the new map – King. Just like the Gulag in Season 9 and Pine in Season 10, King comes from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s Gunfight mode. 

On top of that, there will also be a new multiplayer game mode in the form of Cranked. If you’ve never played it before, it’s a spin on the typical Team Deathmatch. Players have 30 seconds to get a kill or they’ll explode, and for each kill you get, you will receive bonus points.

The roadmap also confirms one of the game’s new killstreaks in the form of the Advanced UAV. This had been teased by the devs back in September after one fan begged them for a Blackbird-like scorestreak. 

As for when the new season will drop, the devs have confirmed that will happen on October 14 at 5 PM PST/8 PM EST/1 AM BST. Once the update is released, there will be plenty of new content that comes with it too, but that will only be unveiled at that point.
