Crimsix made an insane $22k purchase with CDL Champs 2020 winnings

Dallas Empire’s Ian ‘Crimsix’ Porter has revealed an insane purchase he made after winning the Call of Duty Championship back in August — and whatever you might think it is, it isn’t.

Dallas were the most successful team of the inaugural Call of Duty League season, with multiple Home Series wins and a world championship trophy to top it off.

As a result, their players made a fair amount of money throughout the year: around $350k in prize winnings alone, not including salary or any other sources of income.

While some players might invest in cars or property, Crimsix had other ideas for what he wanted his major purchase to be.

Crim is now the highest-earning Call of Duty player of all time.

In his appearance alongside James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks on the CouRage & Nadeshot Show, Nade asked his two former teammates to reveal what they had spent their winnings on, or what they planned to spend it on — and he likely didn’t expect Crim’s response.

“I was like, ‘what’s the best night-vision goggles the military can get?’” he said. “Dude, I want the helmet, I want the mount… I want to be able to walk my dog. Bravo six, going dark. Except, it’s Crimsix, going dark.”

Nade then pushed Crim for a price, saying he expects somewhere in the region of $5,000 – $15,000, and the three-time world champion asked Nadeshot to “not send this to Dana [his fiancée]” as he revealed the whopping $22,000 price tag.

Of all the things you expect someone who’s just cashed a major check to say they’ve purchased, this is pretty low down on the list, but is almost unsurprising coming from someone like Crimsix.

Clayster went a more conventional route, revealing that as this was the first year he’s been debt free, he didn’t spend much, but did buy himself a nice $3500 television as congratulations.

Mind you, if we had the money for $22,000 night vision goggles, would we say no? Probably not.

Call of Duty 2021 leaks hint at new Modern Warfare follow up

Before Black Ops Cold War arrives, we may already have our first hint of next year’s Call of Duty setting as a prominent leaker has teased a new Modern Warfare sequel.

While the Call of Duty franchise has 17 mainline entries covering a wide array of timelines, two names stand out as the most iconic. Both the Black Ops series and the Modern Warfare series have seen the most iterations over the years. 

Treyarch has already released four titles in the Black Ops series with Cold War just weeks away. Meanwhile, Infinity Ward has four entries in the Modern Warfare series, the original trilogy along with 2019’s reboot. Now, it seems as though a fifth could also be on the way with Infinity Ward at the helm.

Sledgehammer Games and Raven Software will reportedly be taking a back seat. Instead of the typical three-year development cycle, Infinity Ward has just two-years to work with. We’re still 12 months off from 2021’s mystery release, but we may already have our first details on next year’s title.

Could Price’s story continue in 2021’s Call of Duty?

“It’s looking like CoD for 2021 is another Modern Warfare title of some kind,” prominent leaker Tom Henderson revealed. Not a whole lot is known beyond that key detail, though the setting for the next release appears to be locked in. 

“Understandably not a lot of information as of yet, but it’s a modern-day setting,” he confirmed. Given Modern Warfare’s hard reboot with 2019’s release, could a new sequel be the next step? This would essentially bypass the original Modern Warfare 2 from 2009 if Activision opts for another identical title.

To avoid even more confusion, there’s a good chance the name is a little different, similar to how Black Ops added Cold War to the title for 2020’s drop, despite it being a direct follow up to Black Ops 1. So expect to see Modern Warfare: ‘something something’ as the likely 2021 title.

This could see a direct continuation from where 2019’s game left off. John Price is looking to assemble a team of classic characters to put a stop to Russian terrorist Victor Zakhaev. If Warzone’s ongoing storyline doesn’t beat the single-player campaign to the punch, this could be our objective in 2021’s release.

While this aspect is purely speculation, the leaker also considered the original Modern Warfare 2 being bundled in. No different from how Infinity Warfare launched with Modern Warfare remastered in 2016.

We’re still months away from any official information on the 2021 title, so take this with a grain of salt for now. Black Ops Cold War is the focus for Activision. Anything regarding next year’s game will be kept under wraps for quite some time yet.
