North American esports organization eUnited have added two new players to the pro CoD team for the upcoming Black Ops 4 season.

Veteran player Jordan ‘JKap’ Kaplan and up-and-coming talent Tyler ‘aBeZy’ Pharris have joined the roster that already features James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks, Preston ‘Prestinni’ Sanderson, and Alec ‘Arcitys’ Sanderson.

In order to make room for the extra addition, Tyler ‘FeLo’ Johnson was dropped, after having joined eUnited halfway through the WWII season in replacement of SiLLY.

This roster move was announced on October 11 via a post on eUnited’s official Twitter page, which included a video introducing all five members of their roster for Black Ops 4.

Clayster also tweeted about the move, praising his new teammates: “Also another massive shout to JKap and aBeZy. Big things this year boys, really excited about this team.”

One of the most prominent figures in CoD esports, JKap joined Luminosity Gaming at the start of the WWII season, having left Team EnVy after back-to-back CWL Champs grand finals appearances.

He had a relatively strong season with LG, finishing top-three at five major tournaments, including a victory at CWL Birmingham.

However, despite their successes, LG and JKap decided to part ways, as the team has revamped its roster with the recent acquisition of Gunless

As one of the most promising talents in the competitive scene, aBeZy was always going to be a hot commodity going into this offseason. 

He spent nearly the entire WWII season with Enigma6 Group, eventually qualifying for CWL Champs, where they placed 17-24. 

eUnited will hope that the mixture of veteran leadership and young talent on their roster will help build on their strong second half of the WWII season.

The team placed third at CWL Seattle, before back-to-back fourth place finishes at both the Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs and CWL Champs.

Zlaner hilariously mocks Warzone fan after he & Dr Disrespect get killed

From tears of joy to tears of pain, a Call of Duty: Warzone player was thrilled to outduel Zlaner and Dr Disrespect until he realized that his Verdansk role model reacted by mocking him live on Twitch.

They say to never meet your heroes, but that can be hard to control when dropping into Verdansk’s randomized lobbies. As a perfect example, TikTok Warzone content creator and streamer, ‘maritimemucker,’ happened to encounter one of his longtime role models, Zlaner, on the roof of Superstore.

Mr. Mucker was running an SKS on the hot drop’s rooftop when a jump-shotting opponent rounded the corner, PP19 Bizon in hand. Mucker was able to turn, hit some jump shots himself, and outduel the foe. Excitedly, he quickly recognized that he had downed an upsurging Warzone star in Zlaner.

Afterward, maritimemucker was eager to check out his role model’s stream. But that ended up in heartbreaking fashion, as it turns out the popular streamer had mocked him right as he and the Doc were mowed down.

@maritimemuckerI don’t mean any disrespect Zlaner but you mocked my voice a lil ya know. Big fan and Kilo main now 💯 ##warzone ##Hotmics ##Zlaner ##drdisrespect ##COD♬ original sound – Maritime Mucker

As mucker shared on TIkTok and Reddit, he was shocked and grinning after killing Zlaner: “I got Zlaner, holy s**t … That is unreal … Huge fan of Z, I’ve been watching his s**t after he finally dropped that stupid Fortnite. Unreal.” 

But when he tuned into Z’s stream, he found out that the Warzone star wasn’t impressed with the 1v1 and had, instead, simply mocked Mucker’s death comms. 

Z’s duo, Dr Disrespect, was able to gun down the low-health maritimemucker, but was also quickly killed by the TikToker’s teammate. That gave Zlaner a chance to hear the death comms (as he dealt enough damage to be rewarded with the kill) and the tilted motivation to go high-pitched in mocking the smaller streamer’s excitement.

If you’re going to run into streamers in Warzone, it’ll probably be at Superstore.

In response, maritimemucker had to recognize that courtliness had been replaced by classic gamer banter: “Alright, I see how it is, Z.” 

So, of course, he proceeded not to insult Zlaner by words, but instead by alluding that the spectacled streamer looks like Bubbles from Trailer Park Boys.

The TikToker roasted Zlaner back by comparing him to Bubbles from Trailer Park Boys.

Ultimately, though, it’s all in good fun and maritimemucker still respects Z tremendously.

When a Reddit commenter suggested that streamers shouldn’t be looked up to, the mocked duelist replied that some Warzone stars deserve the hype: “There are some genuine great streamers out there, Z is one of them.”
