Call of Duty Organization Elevate has announced a series of roster changes leading up to the LCQ and Call of Duty Championship.

Jared ‘Nagafen’ Harrell, Steve ‘Mochila’ Canle and Mikhail ‘Blfire’ Glushenok have been released from Elevate. Michael ‘SpaceLy’ Schmale remains on the team and the players joining him will be announced on July 16.

Elevate’s new roster may have leaked before the announcement, SpaceLy was spotted in the 2K tournament playing with MajorManiak, Chance ‘Maux’ Moncivaez and Nicholas ‘Proto’ Maldonado.

Nagafen and Blfire will stick together and team up with Aiden ‘GorgoKnight’ Provenzano and KiSMET. The team is still looking for an organization to represent them.

Mochila may have been aware of the move for some time now, since he was already trying to recruit Damon ‘Karma’ Barlow for a Champs run.

Elevate returned to the Call of Duty scene in June after more than a year long hiatus. SpaceLy, Nagafen, Blfire and Mochila placed t24 at CWL Anaheim, the only LAN event Elevate has participated in since their return.

The organization started during Call of Duty: Ghosts, but saw its first success during the Advanced Warfare season with a 3rd place finish in the MLG 2015 World finals

Elevate had its best run during Black Ops 3, with a 2nd place finish in Anaheim 2016, as well as 3rd placements in Orlando and the 2016 Call of Duty Championship. They sat out the following season after their BO3 roster was picked up by Rise Nation, though they fielded a European squad called ElevateEU throughout Infinite Warfare.

SpaceLy and crew will not have an automatic bid into CoD Champs and will be playing in the Last Chance Qualifier on July 24 and 25.

Bizarre Warzone bug doesn’t show zone circle

A strange Warzone bug is affecting players by literally not showing them the zone circle — leaving them unaware of where to land or rotate.

Warzone has become somewhat of a haven for bizarre bugs and glitches to arise, frustrating players on a seemingly endless loop, with the likes of the stim glitch and invisibility glitch regularly rearing their ugly heads.

This issue, though, is completely random, and seems to be affecting the Buy Back modes — in the example here, BR Buy Back Solos.

Following the circle is one of the most important rules of any battle royale game, but that looks incredibly difficult when there’s not even a circle for you to see.

Staying inside the circle is much harder when there’s no circle to follow.

What’s worse in the instance here, and what makes it look to be a Buy Back bug and perhaps not one affecting every mode in the game, is that HungLikeALemur doesn’t spawn in with the standard $4500, essentially making the game significantly harder off the rip.

While it’s not uncommon for the circle to be slow to pop up, occasionally, it does eventually turn up, hopefully not too long after you’re able to drop.

It’s unclear for how long Lemur was unable to see the circle for and where he was meant to be going, but even after over a minute, there was no sign of it on the map.

As you can imagine, this essentially ruins matches for people, but it doesn’t seem to be a particularly widespread issue just yet, with clips like these being more of a rarity than other common bugs and glitches.

That said, it’s definitely something Warzone developers Raven Software will want to investigate to ensure it doesn’t become a more frequent thing, and hopefully prevent it from happening altogether.
