North American esports organization Elevate are back in the thick of things within Call of Duty esports, having found their way back into the CWL Pro League.

On April 19, Elevate announced their re-entry into the CWL Pro League after having successfully purchased the spot of Excelerate Gaming, confirming what had been heavily speculated in the days leading up to the sale.

In addition to competing in the Pro League, Elevate will also compete at the upcoming CWL London major tournament, taking ExG’s spot in Pool D.

Elevate’s new CWL Pro League roster

As per CWL rules, Elevate had to keep at least one player from ExG’s roster to be eligible for the Pro League. The team has, in fact, decided to keep three – ProFeeZy, Skyz, and MRuiz – with Brack moving to Denial Esports and JetLi entering free agency.

The other two roster spots have been filled by former Denial players Wailers and Breszy. Here is Elevate’s new roster heading into CWL London the remaining weeks of the Pro League:

  • Cesar ‘Skyz’ Bueno
  • Christopher ‘ProFeeZy’ Astudillo
  • Mike ‘MRuiz’ Ruiz
  • Wailers ‘Wailers’ Locart
  • Paul ‘Breszy’ Breszynski

Excelerate leave rocky legacy in Pro League

Having sold their spot in the CWL Pro League, Excelerate are officially out of the pro scene in CoD esports, and the legacy they left will be considered rocky at best.

The negativity surrounding the org first started when they controversially dropped FA5TBALLA from their starting lineup just a week into the Pro League, which prompted heavy backlash from the rest of the community.

FA5TBALLA - TwitterThe controversial demotion of FA5TBALLA was what started a downhill trend for Excelerate’s popularity in the pro CoD scene.

This was followed by an anonymous source publicly accusing the org of blackmailing their players and refusing to pay salary, which some feel was indirectly confirmed to be the case by CEO Justin Tan.

This was all on top of the fact that the team managed just a 3-8 record in Division B, not to mention lowly performances at both CWL Vegas and Fort Worth

Hilarious Black Ops Cold War bug literally breaks Fireteam Dirty Bomb

A game-breaking Black Ops Cold War bug is suspending players above the map on Fireteam Dirty Bomb, rendering them useless for the entire match.

As with any new release, Black Ops Cold War has had its fair share of bugs and glitches. From players falling through the map to a permanent thermal overlay, its obvious Treyarch overlooked a few elements of the game before releasing the title.

However, if a bug is not game-breaking, players will usually laugh it off and let it go. It’s only when a glitch renders players completely useless that a bug starts to become more frustrating than funny.

Well, that’s exactly the type of bug some players are experiencing on Fireteam Dirty Bomb and it’s fair to say they’re not pleased about it.

Fireteam Dirty Bomb is the new mode released with Black Ops Cold War.

Game-breaking bug suspends players above the map

A video posted to the Black Ops Cold War subreddit reveals a game-breaking bug occurring on Fireteam Dirty Bomb. The glitch suspends the players above the map for the entire match with them unable to move or participate.

On top of this, it appears the entire game mode is broken with teams being bigger than they’re are supposed to be and textures not loading in.

As you can see, the players are left floating above the map and are audibly frustrated at the issue. One of them even states: “I’d genuinely be surprised if they even had playtesters for this game.”

It’s worth noting the players can scope down onto the map below but they’re completely locked in place. Attempting to run will trigger the animation but no movement will occur.

Glitches can be entertaining in certain titles, especially when they do not heavily impact the gameplay experience. However, in competitive games like Call of Duty, a game-breaking bug can be extremely frustrating.

Fingers crossed Treyarch get this bug fixed as soon as possible so players don’t have to continue spectating the game from above the map.
