Professional Call of Duty players at the CWL Pro League got a chance to play Black Ops 4 early, and David “Dqvee” Davies has given his opinion on the new game from what he has played so far.

Black Ops 4, set for release October 12th, is still in development but has been playable at recent events including the E3 Convention and CWL Anaheim, as Treyarch fine tunes the game ahead of launch.

There has also been a beta confirmed, and fans who have their beta code from pre-ordering the game will be expecting it to go live in the next couple of months.

But while fan and casual player’s feedback is important, perhaps even more valuable are opinions and feedback from the most elite level players, the professionals.

Many of whom have been playing CoD daily for the last six to ten years of their lives and can provide insight into the finer details of weapon balance, spawn systems and gameplay mechanics, maybe overlooked by a casual player.

Dqvee, one of the players given hands on time, sat down with Epsilon to discuss his experience on the game and the competitive side.

“Even though it’s boots on the ground, it’s a lot faster paced. The sliding is really fluid, movement altogether is pretty fluid. It was just really fun to play, everything felt fresh and new and fun and exciting.

In past Call of Duty’s, I have been a flex type player – I’d use a [SMG] and an AR some maps – and when I have a SMG on I’m quite objective oriented. When I was playing hardpoints at the studio, I was getting over two minutes in hill every hardpoint with a good amount of kills.

Who knows what it’s going to be like when the game actually comes out, I might like a different role more, but I think that role will suit me best, using a sub most maps.

Presumably, Black Ops 4 will be playable again for the Division B teams, as currently only Division A is out at the MLG Arena in Columbus, so we should get another set of opinions soon.

You can read some of what the other Division A players, including Bryan “Apathy” Zhelyazkov, Dillon “Attach” Price and Ben “Bance” Bance had to say about Black Ops 4 here.

Returning for his final event of the Call of Duty League offseason, Team Summertime’s Davis ‘Hitch’ Edwards is hosting an enormous Black Ops 2 Invitational featuring former champions and popular content creators.

Throwback tournaments have been all the rage throughout the 2020 offseason and no one has been leading the charge quite like Hitch. Outside of hosting Warzone comps, his unique tournaments have spanned from Modern Warfare 2 to Black Ops 4. This time, his sights are set on 2012’s Black Ops 2.

Despite hackers ruining an early test for this particular event, the kinks have all seemingly been worked out. From former championship-winning teams to some of the biggest content creators, Hitch’s final event is set to be the biggest yet.

From how you can tune in, to every player joining the all-star Call of Duty event, we’ve got you covered. Here’s everything there is to know about the Black Ops 2 Invitational.
