Star Call of Duty professional Ian ‘Crimsix‘ Porter thinks his OpTic Gaming team isn’t in the right state of mind at the moment, following a string of disappointing performances at the CWL Pro League.

The regular season of the CWL Pro League wrapped up on July 5, as OpTic Gaming finished with the best record in Division A, having clinched first place with several matches to spare. 

However, according to Crimsix, cementing their place atop the division so early may have had negative effects on the team for the final few matches, with the crucially important postseason phase of the Pro League yet to come. 

“Team has been mentally checked out after securing first,” he tweeted. “No comment on the gameplay, because we aren’t really playing/scrimming at all before these matches. Get me home please.”

“Obviously it’s unacceptable,” he added. “But those matches actually really mean nothing.” 

The matches that Crimsix was referring to are the ones that OpTic played in the final week of the regular season, which was arguably their worst stretch yet in the Pro League.

Coming into Week 12 with a monstrous winning streak, the Green Wall barely squeaked by Team Heretics and Elevate, the latter of which required a miraculous 2v5 in round 11 of the fifth map to win.

The performances didn’t get better from there, while the results worsened. The third match of the week say OpTic end up on the wrong end of a shocking sweep at the hands of a struggling Team Envy, who finished six games under .500.

In their final match, the one played write before Crim put out his tweets, the boys in green were handled by eUnited 3-1, in a match that they looked like they really had no chance of winning. 

MLGOpTic have lost their mental focus ever since they clinched first place in Division A, according to Crimsix.

While what Crim said is true, that none of the results of those four matches meant anything in terms of their positioning in Division A, it may have some longer term effects, especially when considering that the Playoffs are only a couple of weeks away.

OpTic won’t have much time to right their ship, as they’re due to start off the postseason by facing the winner of Team Heretics and one of the finalists from the Play-In tournament, which could very easily be Envy again.

CWLOpTic won’t have too much time to regain their mental focus ahead of the $1.25 million CWL Finals.

The event will start off with the Play-In tournament, where the eight teams that did not finish in the top-four of either Division A or B will get a chance to take up the two spots left in the Playoffs.

The following two days will see the 10 Playoff teams compete against each other for a slice of the whopping $1.25 million prize pool and the honor of being crowned Pro League champions.

The weekend will also play host to the final amateur open bracket tournament of the season, a $150,000 affair that will send 16 non-pro teams to Champs.

Weird Warzone glitch forces players into hearing never-ending rock music

Warzone players have been rocking out to the game’s new vehicle music as they drive through the frozen fields of Verdansk. However, for some, these catchy tunes never end.

There’s no denying that Warzone Season 6 has had its fair share of problems. Aside from the train station teething problems and return of the ‘demon gun’ texture glitch, there have been some new additions to the seemingly ever-growing bugfix list.

So far, Activision has had to fix an overpowered bug that allowed the AS VAL to shoot through unlimited walls, a game-breaking unlimited Stim glitch, and now Modern Warfare fans are reporting a rock and roll related problem. 

While Warzone’s new music tracks certainly liven up your drive time commutes across Verdansk, they can also pose a risk to your game-winning plays. This is particularly true when the music in question doesn’t actually stop. The continuous blare of heavy rock certainly gets us pumped in games like DOOM, but it really doesn’t help in FPS titles like Warzone where you need to hear enemy footsteps.

What is the Warzone music glitch? 

The addition of playable vehicle music certainly isn’t a new feature in Warzone – in fact, players have been able to equip certain CoD related tracks since Season 5. However, music fans can now listen to their favorite tracks from the likes of DMX, Skrillex, Jack Harlow, and iconic themes from across the Call of Duty series. 

Unfortunately, these tunes have caused a rather interesting and mildly infuriating glitch. The bug seems to happen when you or any of your squadmates have any of the game’s War Tracks equipped and enter a vehicle. While this bug may not be that bad when listening to the game’s quieter tracks, things can get incredibly frustrating when the heavy metal Juggernaut theme plays on a loop.

You may be tempted to blow up your vehicle or drive it off the nearest cliff edge, but even this won’t stop the never-ending audio. Some players have reported that they still hear vehicle music, even when they have the audio option turned off in the game’s settings. “The rock music won’t stop, even after getting out of the vehicle. To top it off, my teammate and I had already turned the audio off before the game,” says one frustrated player

“After it just wouldn’t stop and we couldn’t hear A THING, we even destroyed the vehicle in hopes it would quiet down. Ultimately, we just disconnected when we couldn’t take it anymore.” Some Warzone players have even reported that they managed to get to the final ring with the same heavy rock track blaring down their earphones. 

How to fix the Warzone vehicle music glitch

Modern Warfare Juggernaut
Activision / Infinity Ward
It seems the Juggernaut War Track is the most common offender.

Fortunately, some crafty players have discovered that you can fix this pesky audio issue by selecting the Black Ops music pack from the War Tracks menu. Meanwhile, if you encounter the problem mid-game, simply enter another vehicle in the hopes that it fixes the never-ending audio loop. 

There have even been reports that constantly getting in and out of the offending vehicle will eventually fix the issue. Of course, your experience may vary and some of these fixes may not work. Warzone Season 6 certainly seems to be off to a rocky start and it looks like we’ll just have to wait until Activision officially fixes this audio issue in a future patch.
