Surprising 100 Thieves statistic could show why they really won CWL Anaheim

Statistics taken from the Call of Duty tournament have revealed a surprising fact about the team’s incredible run to glory at the event.

100 Thieves became the first CoD team in the Black Ops 4 season to win back-to-back major championships, securing victory in California following their win in London, England back in May.

Many were impressed by the team’s dominant run to the trophy, but statistics revealed by CoD Stats have given fans a surprising revelation about their run, and specifically their Hardpoint performances.

MLG100 Thieves were outslayed in four consecutive Hardpoints at the start of their winner’s bracket run.

At CWL Anaheim, 100 Thieves added incredible Search & Destroy skills to their already dominant Hardpoint game, but it has been revealed that in their first four Hardpoint maps in the competition’s winners bracket, they found less kills than the other team, but somehow managed to win three of those maps.

100 Thieves were outslayed twice by Elevate and OpTic Gaming, but defeated both teams by a 3-1 scoreline to progress through the match. OpTic Gaming were able to take one of the hardpoints in their epic showdown, but needed Dashy to find 49 kills to do it.

The statistic shows that 100 Thieves don’t need to rely on finding kills to take down opponents, but that their game sense and rotations around the map are so strong that other teams can’t match them even when they find more eliminations than 100T.

Viewer state that the team’s ability to rotate, and break into hills that they had lost were the keys to their success, alongside some incredible composure to keep their gameplan intact even when the killfeed is lighting up for the other team. 

With 100 Thieves now sitting as back-to-back major champions, many believe they are now favorites to win three in a row, and possibly dominate the remaining two events of the competitive season.

Alongside that, some now believe they are the world’s best team in both Hardpoint and Search & Destroy – a frightening idea considering that they make up four of the five maps in a CWL best-of-five series.

100T will be back in action in the CWL Pro League on June 24 when they square off against a rejuvenated Evil Geniuses, before turning their attention to CWL Finals and the CWL Championships in July and August respectively.

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.
