Crimsix has three simple requests to Treyarch for Black Ops 4

OpTic Gaming’s Ian ‘Crimsix’ Porter has made three demands of the Black Ops 4 development team at Treyarch, after competitive scrims have been plagued by some recurring issues.

While scrimming against Team Envy, Crimsix was sent into a rage after losing a Control map, where a number of glitches affected the match.

Not least, his teammate, Damon ‘Karma’ Barlow was unable to spawn in for the majority of one of the rounds, which Envy went on to win.

This glitch was the cause of much of Crimsix’ complaints, coupled with other issues such as teammates showing as enemies and vice versa.

Another common problem, particularly in control, is when you spectate the enemy team during respawn delays which last two seconds (or three if a suicide).

These are the three issues which Crimsix would like to see Treyarch address quickly, with the competitive season beginning to really get underway.

Despite numerous updates on almost a daily basis, these are still some simple yet impactful bugs which are causing real issues within competitive play particularly.

Treyarch were fast to fix some of the other early glitches which also effected competitive play, such as the SnD round count glitch, where and SnD map would automatically end after seven rounds had been played, even when the win limit was set to first to six rounds.

Perhaps if Treyarch can fix these glitches which are still affecting the game, it will save Crimsix’ helpless desk from anymore attacks like these:

NICKMERCS rates the best Warzone players from to Scump to HusKerrs

Tasked with drafting a team for a Call of Duty: Warzone tournament, NICKMERCS went through some of the game’s biggest names, ranking them while determining who he would most want to duo with.

To start Davis ‘Hitch’ Edwards’ $10,000 “Cracked Creators” Warzone tournament, 16 creators were tasked with drafting their duo from 16 “cracked” streamers.

As one of the creators allowed to select their tandem, NICKMERCS sifted through 16 of the game’s best to determine who he would prefer to play with.

Ultimately, the FaZe streamer ended up putting his decision to a poll among his fans. But, before doing so, he originally went through all 16 and gave thoughts on how each of them ranks. And the options were varied, but all shared one thing in common: talent.

With professional Call of Duty League players like Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper and Seth ‘Scump’ Abner available, as well as Warzone streamers like Aydan and HusKerrs, the candidates were excellent. Still, NICKMERCS sifted through and broke down who he truly believes ranks as the battle royale’s best.

Segment begins at 00:20:45.

NICKMERCS starts by going through the list and just expressing what an absolute struggle it will be to pick from such a talented crop of peers: “Oh, it’s going to be so hard to pick man … No matter what, everybody that I would pick from is cracked.” But, after going through and complimenting practically everybody, he starts the process of elimination.

Since Nick chooses second after DrDisrespect, he immediately eliminates Zlaner as Doc’s likely first pick. Then, he eliminates JoeWo with two simple reasons: “I’ve never played with him and every time I play against him, I beat that little ass.”

Then, BobbyPoff is gone: “BobbyPoff, I love the guy, but take him off the list.” And the “Scarf Lord” is followed quickly by the Chicago Huntsmen’s FormaL and Scump: “Love ‘em, love ‘em. But I feel like there’s better BR players.” After that, things start getting complicated.

Similar to Zlaner, Nick decides to sacrifice Merk so that he can play with his longtime duo, Maven. Then, recognizing that all of these remaining players are absolute menaces on Verdansk, he goes with two simple metrics to determine his personal preference. He immediately prioritizes controller players and the highest earners in Warzone tournaments.

That eliminates stars like HusKerrs and Symfuhny for their mouse and keyboard usage, while also eliminating Crowder and DougIsRaw for their low earnings. Finally, he eliminates Jukeyz because of his struggles understanding the UK maestro’s accent and decides to put the decision to a poll.

 

Ultimately, it’s between Aydan and Tommey, with Cloakzy popping on to let NICKMERCS know that Aydan’s been playing some Fortnite recently. That leaves the FaZe star choosing Tommey, noting that “he’s got great communication, phenomenal player, guaranteed to get some chopper kills off rip.”

Despite going through full rankings for his options and landing upon an excellent duo, the decision-making process proved to be futile. NICKMERCS and Tommey could only end in the Top 12 for the tournament, while the easily dismissed BobbyPoff actually came in first place.
