compLexity Gaming Could Already Be Looking to Sign Karma for the Upcoming Black Ops 4 Season

CompLexity Gaming were eliminated from the 2018 CWL Championships during the third day of competition, and the org is already looking ahead to the upcoming Black Ops 4 season.

With the next Call of Duty title scheduled to be released mid-October, compLexity has close to two months to assemble their envisioned roster.

Just after the team lost to Red Reserve in the first round of the Losers Bracket, coL CEO and Founder Jason Lake sent out a tweet thanking his players and team coach for all their hard work.

He followed that up with another tweet in which he made it clear that the org would be “evaluating all options” for Black Ops 4 and welcomed any interested players to contact him.

Included in the tweet above is a photo of compLexity’s World Championship roster from 2014, which featured Damon ‘Karma’ Barlow.

Perhaps the decision to tweet out that specific image is a coincidence, but it was shortly followed by a cryptic tweet sent from current Brandon ‘Dashy’ Otell, coL’s standout player this season.

Soon thereafter, some noticed that Karma had started following Jason Lake on Twitter, which can be seen by this screenshot.

Jason Lake’s and Dashy’s tweets, along with the screenshot above, has led many to believe that compLexity could be planning to go all out to sign their former star player this off-season.

With one or more players of their current roster likely to be on their way out, it would not be a stretch to imagine the three-time World Champion donning a red and black jersey once again.

However, all of this should be treated as nothing more than speculation, as Karma’s future is likely to be a hot topic over the next few months.

As of now, he is still a member of OpTic Gaming’s content creation team, and it is not out of the question that he could be brought back to the Greenwall’s CoD team for the Black Ops 4 season.

Black Ops Cold War leak reveals new Christmas-themed Nuketown

The holidays are right around the corner and it appears as though Black Ops Cold War will be getting into the festive spirit as new leaks have revealed a limited-time version of Nuketown ‘84 on the way.

Nuketown has seen a number of complete makeovers throughout the years. What started as a simple, close-quarters map in Black Ops 1, has been revamped in many unique ways. From a futuristic remake to the latest 80’s themed design and plenty more.

The fan-favorite map isn’t stopping there, however. New leaks and even a quirky bug have all pointed towards a festive takeover coming into effect very soon. There might even be multiple versions of the battlefield all in-game at the one time.

Christmas is coming to Black Ops Cold War in a big way. Not only will Nuketown be covered with festive decorations, but there also appears to be a night-time variant coming as well.

From a leaked preview image of the Nuketown ‘84 map, we’re given our first look at the map from an all-new perspective. Rather than the beaming hot sun lighting things up, Nuketown looks a little different here. A dark sky keeps things mellow while Christmas lights aim to get you in the holiday spirit.

A few Christmas reefs are scattered around while tinsel is layered across almost every surface. From the one angle, however, there doesn’t seem to be any kind of snow or other major difference. Purely just decorations on an otherwise standard Nuketown ‘84.

While the leaked image comes from a reliable source that’s revealed a wide array of content in the past, there’s more to it than just that. Oddly enough, a bizarre glitch from November 25 actually let players see the Christmas decorations in-game for a split moment.

The yet unannounced version of the map randomly came into effect mid-game for one lucky player. They were caught off guard by the interior of a house but the decorations remained in place, even after death.

That should clear up any caution as to whether the Christmas-themed variant is real or not. While there’s no date locked in for this holiday takeover, we can obviously expect to see it in a matter of weeks as December draws to an end.

Nuketown seems to be the only map getting a festive makeover for now. Though there could always be some visual changes on the way for Warzone as well. We’ll have to wait and see.
