Seattle Surge’s Ian ‘Enable’ Wyatt announced his return to active Call of Duty League competition as only he could – with a hilarious Michael Jordan-inspired press release.

Following a tumultuous start to the inaugural CDL season, Seattle Surge rotated Enable to the bench on February 14. While Casey ‘Pandur’ Romano joined the starting lineup, Enable assured that the transition “lit a fire” and that he would be grinding to earn his spot back.

A few months later and the Seattle Surge has made a shift once again as Enable announced his return to the starting squad with a Michael Jordan-inspired post.

The original Seattle lineup is back together.

A May 12 press release regarding Enable’s future in the competitive scene featured just two words: “I’m back.”

Akin to six-time Chicago Bulls champion and arguable basketball GOAT Michael Jordan’s iconic 1995 fax that revealed his return to the NBA after a shock two-year departure, Enable stylishly announced his return to Call of Duty’s top league.

After 88 days on the bench, having missed out on four Home Series events with the Surge, the former Halo champion and CoD veteran is back in the mix.

Ahead of the Seattle Surge Home Series on May 22, the ‘hometown’ team will have its initial core back together. Sam ‘Octane’ Larew, Josiah ‘Slacked’ Berry, Damon ‘Karma’ Barlow, and Bryan ‘Apathy’ Zhelyazkov will be back in action with their original fifth roster member.

“Really excited to bring Enable back on the starting lineup,” Seattle head coach Joey ‘Nubzy’ DiGiacomo said. “Especially going into our home series.”

Sitting at 10th place overall, the star-studded lineup is looking to come out with a bang at the next event. Following on from a top-four finish in the April 26 Chicago Huntsmen Home Series – the team’s best placement to date – they’re gunning for the top spot.

“This team is going to function as a family, and Ian is a great piece to facilitate that. It’s time to make a statement and show why this is a team of winners,” Nubzy continued in his comments made after the official Surge announcement.

Having passed the halfway point in the 2020 regular season, teams have been shuffling rosters a great deal. OpTic Gaming moved Jordan ‘JKap’ Kaplan to the bench and bid farewell to head coach Jonathan ‘Pacman’ Tucker . Meanwhile, Chicago Huntsmen could be bringing the twins back together, as Preston “Prestinni” Sanderson has been eyed to fill the shoes of Gunless.

Enable will be back in action with the Seattle Surge on May 22. His first series back will see him squaring off with the New York Subliners.

The Call of Duty Mobile devs have revealed that one iconic CoD weapon is coming in 2021’s Season 1 update, and it should be recognizable to any long-time CoD fan.

For years, Call of Duty fans have begged Infinity Ward, Treyarch, Activision, and anyone else who will listen, for a game that takes the best part of all previous releases and puts them into one.

Increasingly, we’re seeing more map remakes, classic weapons returning, and even character crossovers thanks to Warzone, but it’s CoD Mobile that really fits the bill of what that all-encompassing CoD game would be.

The mobile game has maps from CoD 4: Modern Warfare, Black Ops 1, as well as weapons from Advanced Warfare and even Black Ops 3 and 4. With the first major update of 2021 just around the corner, the devs have started teasing what’s coming next, and we’re getting more throwbacks.

CoD Mobile has characters, maps, and weapons from almost every modern Call of Duty game.

Even though CoD Mobile is currently, as of writing, in Season 13, when the first major update of 2021 hits, we’ll be back to Season 1. Just like how Fortnite is now Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5.

Regardless, when players finally get to play the new season update, they’ll be able to wield the FAMAS. Yes, the iconic Call of Duty weapon, that has been in a whole host of CoD games is finally arriving in CoD Mobile.

The devs confirmed the news on January 16, tweeting out their first teaser for the new season. “A new weapon is approaching! Can you guess what it is?” they said, with an image and it’s fairly obvious that the weapon in question is the FAMAS.

The name of the iconic weapon might get a slight tweak when it is added to CoD Mobile. The devs have tweaked the names of other recognizable guns before, just to give it a new feel for the mobile game.

There’s also the question of whether it’ll be as powerful as it was, say, back in Black Ops 1. Hopefully, we don’t have to wait too long.
