Three-time Call of Duty world champion Ian ‘Crimsix’ Porter has revealed what his biggest issue was with former teammate Seth ‘Scump’ Abner after his departure from OpTic Gaming in 2019.

After five years teaming together, the Crim and Scump duo ended on sour terms as Crimsix was shifted out of the team, with Crimsix explaining shortly after his departure that the team “hated each other” and that the Black Ops 4 season was “the beginning of the end” for his time with OpTic.

There have been numerous back and forth jokes between Crimsix, Scump and their fans, and it seems the situation isn’t quite as dire as it once was, but that doesn’t mean that the two are best of friends again.

Following his third World Championship win, Crimsix went on Hector ‘H3CZ’ Rodriguez’ Eavesdrop podcast to discuss what went wrong between himself and Scump.

Crim and Scump won countless tournaments together, but it didn’t end brilliantly.

When H3CZ explained his side of the OpTic team’s demise at the end of the Black Ops 4 season, Crim spoke about what went wrong, and what bothered him about the events that occurred.

He said: “I just find it funny that Seth brags about texting FormaL right after we lost because I was thinking, like, why didn’t you let me know two months earlier?

“At the end of the day, a phone call or something like that from him, I would’ve got off the phone and started getting things going,” he continued, before explaining that the decision came on his fiancee’s birthday and was “super delayed,” adding that he wishes Scump would have just told him a month or two prior to Champs.

Needless to say, Crimsix came out better for the roster changes during the first season of the Call of Duty League. While his team went on to become the most successful during Modern Warfare, Scump, FormaL and the Chicago Huntsmen hovered around the top, but struggled to consistently stay up there.

Who knows: had Scump told Crimsix a month earlier, the Dallas Empire squad that performed so well may never have happened, and the entire season could have gone a completely different direction.

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.

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.
