Dr Disrespect is no stranger to Call of Duty and the mega-popular YouTube streamer could be on his way to backing a Call of Duty League (CDL) franchise, if his latest hints are to be trusted.

The CDL is just one year into its existence though its early popularity has drawn attention from some marquee names. Dr Disrespect is one such name and he certainly has a long history with competitive CoD. From designing maps in 2014’s Advanced Warfare to appearing at the 2019 World League Championship event, he’s been involved at a few different levels over the years.

Now, backing a team in the newly-established Call of Duty League could be his next play. Organizations put up tens of millions to join on day one and Dr Disrespect could soon be among the group of franchise owners.

Amidst an eventful offseason, with Hector ‘H3CZ’ Rodriguez buying back the ownership of OpTic Gaming and Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag teasing his own involvement down the line, could Dr Disrespect be involved as well?

The Call of Duty League is only just beginning but it could already be attracting huge names such as Dr Disrespect.

Nadeshot recently posted a picture on Instagram of himself, H3CZ, and Dr Disrespect all together with the caption ‘Mount Rushmore.’

Naturally, this set the rumor mill ablaze. Could the trio be forming a new franchise? Could they be restoring the OpTic brand to its former glory through the CDL? Only time will tell, though Dr Disrespect wasn’t afraid of teasing his involvement during a recent broadcast.

“Doc, do you ever plan to have your own professional team?” A viewer questioned as Doc loaded into a round of Warzone action on October 5.

He took his time to respond, pausing between every few words and cheekily laughing at the question. “Will I have my own? Probably not. Will I be a part as a shareholder? You never know…”

Obviously, Doc loves to tease his fanbase with all kinds of exciting ideas, but perhaps this one may actually come to fruition.

With the OpTic LA CDL spot now owned by H3CZ, per the CDL rules, he’s required to sell it or give up the Chicago Huntsmen spot. While he suggested that he “intends to divest to interested esports organizations,” it sounds as though Doc could get involved as a shareholder in the very near future.

Nadeshot initially brushed off the idea of owning a Los Angeles-based CDL team, though he did leave the door open for 100 Thieves to join “down the road. 

If this tease is to be believed, along with Nadeshot’s Instagram post with Doc and H3CZ, perhaps the stars have aligned for a new powerhouse brand to enter the league.

It’s clear that nothing is final just yet, though Dr Disrespect would have no reason to mention the shareholder angle if there wasn’t some truth to it. There’s no date yet locked in for the 2021 CDL season, though we know it’ll be sticking to the same 12 franchises from the first year of competition.

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

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.
