Evil Geniuses Choke a Round 11 to Extend Their SnD Loss Streak to 12

The Search and Destroy loss streak for Evil Geniuses has reached 12 after a game 5 round 11 loss to Red Reserve in the CWL Pro League.

An impressive performance in CWL Stage 2 saw EG in second place after the first round of matches, but everything would fall apart at CWL Anaheim. Evil Geniuses failed to win a single Search and Destroy map in Anaheim, going 0-8 in the mode to kick off this slide.

EG had a 0.77 team K/D ratio in Search at CWL Anaheim and not a single player was above 0.8 for the tournament.

The losses continued once Evil Geniuses got back to CWL Stage 2 for the second round of matches. Epsilon, a team who is winless so far in Stage 2 and has only won 30% of their Search maps, beat EG in the second map to push the streak to 9.

Echo Fox then piled on to extend the streak to 10 and Red Reserve took a map to make it 11, but EG fought back in CTF and Hardpoint to set up the crucial Game 5.

Despite having a 4v3 advantage and complete control of the B bomb site on St. Marie, Evil Geniuses dropped the round 11 in heartbreaking fashion when Red stormed in without having to use a single grenade.

The game 5 brought Evil Geniuses’ record to 12 consecutive Search and Destroy losses.

The losses have taken EG from a comfortable second place in the highly competitive Group A down to third, only a half game above a 5th place spot that would see them missing the playoffs.

Evil Geniuses will have a chance to turn things around on June 28th, when they take on the also struggling Splyce in CWL Stage 2. If EG drops another Search map against Splyce, Jack “Courage” Dunlop’s infamous 0-15 streak may be in jeopardy.

How to find Warzone Leatherface house easter egg on Verdansk map

With Call of Duty: Warzone celebrating its first Halloween, there’s some unique changes to the map: here’s everything you need to know to find and enter Leatherface’s house on the Verdansk map.

Warzone’s Halloween celebrations are well underway, with a ton of new content for players to dive into. This includes a number of ghostly easter eggs, one of which takes the shape of a creepy Leatherface shack located on the Verdansk map.

Leatherface is infamous for his role as the antagonist in The Texas Chainsaw film series. First debuting in 1974, the cannibalistic murderer has been reincarnated multiple times. You can even unlock Leatherface content in Modern Warfare and Warzone to strike fear into the heart of your opponents.

Warzone’s Halloween event has given the map a major spooky makeover.

Leatherface’s house location in Warzone

In order to find his house, you need to head to the very east side of the map, towards Krovnik Farmland. Once there, you’ll find a small hut towards the top of the south east areas of huts.

Once you’re nearby it should be pretty easy to locate – there are plenty of signs that it’s the house of a serial killer. A demonic Leatherface figure will greet you at one of the windows, while body parts are littered around the downstairs. Chainsaw noises will also play from upstairs, before two Leatherface figures ambush you on your trip up the stairs.

There’s no in-game reward for visiting the house of Leatherface, but it’s an awesome feature for fans of The Texas Chainsaw series to enjoy nonetheless. It’s fair to assume you could terrify unsuspecting players by waiting among the scattered body parts and incarnations of the mass murderer.

At the time of writing Halloween is still has over a week left, so Infinity Ward could well have some more tricks (or treats) up their sleeves for the Haunting of Verdansk event.
