After completing a number of incredible upsets and qualifying for the CWL Pro League, French Call of Duty team lead by Wailers ‘Wailers’ Locart are in search of a new organization.

Representing Overtime eSport, the team won their series vs Team Spacely, Pittsburgh Knights, Mazer Gaming, FC Black, FaZe Clan and finally Mindfreak to secure their spot in the 2019 CWL Pro League.

However, the players have decided to leave the organization to find a more resource-rich home, that can better support and bring more exposure to the French hopefuls.

As a result, on Wednesday, January 23, Coach Keyvan ‘iKeeyv’ Miri declared the team is open to offers from a new organization.

In a statement made to Dexerto France, Miri has announced that the team is on the market:

The Pro League is fast approaching and we have taken the initiative to publicly announce that we are currently looking for a new organization to represent. 

Of course, we do not wish to leave Overtime like this. They helped us the best they could since arriving home before the CWL Las Vegas. But for the well-being of the team, we had already agreed with Overtime, in case of qualification in Pro League, the team had to be put on sale on the market.

We really want to analyze all our possibilities. I invite all organizations that may be interested in the team to contact me directly, but also to contact Overtime_Astral for the spot in the CWL World League.

– Keyvan Miri, team coach

The French stars beat FaZe Clan and Mindfreak to qualify for the 2019 CWL Pro League.

Many well-known organizations are believed to be looking for a qualified team for the CWL Pro League, and the exploits of Wailers, Natshay, rizK, Zeek and Breszy will not have gone unnoticed internationally. 

Eliminating FaZe Black, FaZe Clan and Mindfreak in the losers bracket was a groundbreaking moment in the careers of this French lineup, and it is all the more evidence that they have truly earned their place in the Pro League. 

Of course, they are not the only Pro League team in search of an organization, as the North American side known as ‘Team Spacely’, who earned their spot with no org backing them, are rumored to be the targets of a number of big name teams.

Black Ops Cold War Season 1 teaser all but confirms Rebirth Island map

During the announcement that Black Ops Cold War Season 1 and it’s subsequent Warzone integration would be slightly delayed by six days, the developers released a teaser image that all but confirms that the new map will involve Rebirth Island.

Earlier today, the CoD community was taken aback by the fact that the first post-launch content season for Black Ops Cold War had been officially delayed by six days.

While the delay isn’t long by any stretch of the imagination, many fans have been eager for more content, including the integration with Warzone, which so far we didn’t have many official details on.

But during the news, Treyarch dropped a teaser image for the season which at first glance might not show off much but if you look closely pretty much confirms all of the leaks that have come out over the last month or so.

Activision
Rebirth Island was originally teased in the Season 1 roadmap for Black Ops Cold War.

At the top of the teaser image, which says that Season 1 is coming on December 16, fans can see that a few phrases in red blurred out in varying degrees. Upping the brightness of the image in Photoshop reveals a few cool, interesting details.

The first is a set of coordinates at the very top of the image. Inputting that latitude and longitude into Google Maps will take you to the real-life Vozrozhdeniya Island in Uzbekistan, otherwise known as Rebirth Island. Beyond that, the phrase “Rebirth Island” can actually be seen in the image as well.

While both of these can be seen normally in the base image, they are way easier to see after it’s been brightened.

Brighting the teaser image in Photoshop reveals coordinates for the real-life Rebirth Island.

This all but confirms the leaks that Rebirth Island will be coming to the game when the integration happens and given the fact that the developers have already confirmed a new map for the season, it’s almost certainly this one.

As with with any other rumor or speculation, take this with a grain of salt, however, fans will likely be getting their first look at Rebirth Island sometime within the next week or two so keep an eye out for that.

Until then, keep it locked to Dexerto for more about Black Ops Cold War and Warzone.
