The Evil Geniuses organisation has not found much success in the CoD World League since trading their world championship roster with Team Envy at the start of the CWL season.

Following their disappointing result at CWL Anaheim, where they finished Top 16, the team seem to have had enough of their current roster as they were spotted in a pre-game lobby with former Splyce star Lamar ‘Accuracy’ Abedi taking the place of the CWL rookie, Timothy ‘Phantomz’ Landis.

Accuracy was regarded as one of the best Call of Duty players in 2018.

It is quite likely that the Evil Geniuses squad are looking at picking up Accuracy, as both him and Phantomz have been accustomed to the main AR roles in their teams so far in Black Ops 4.

It should also come as no shock to see Accuracy playing with other teams, as he is currently an “unrestricted free agent”, after he announced he was released from Splyce, shortly after being moved to the substitute position on June 3.

The deadline for the final roster movement window of the CWL season will is June 20, which means players will only have a short time before settling on any roster changes.

Any rosters locked in beyond this point will be stuck together for the remainder of Black Ops 4, including the CWL Finals in Miami and the Call of Duty World Championship, which will take place in Los Angeles, California.

Although many suspect the roster change is going to take place, it has not confirmed by Evil Geniuses or any of the players involved as of now, and it is possible that Accuracy may have just been filling in.

The next time fans will get to see teams debut their new lineups from the current transfer window will be for the return of the CWL Pro League, which kicks off again on June 24.

Full speculated Evil Geniuses roster: 

  • John ‘Xotic’ Bruno
  • Dillon ‘Attach’ Price
  • Bryan ‘Apathy’ Zhelyazkov
  • Jordan ‘JKap’ Kaplan
  • Lamar ‘Accuracy’ Abedi

CoD Mobile Season 1 New Order early patch notes: Weapons, new map, release date, more

Call of Duty Mobile is gearing up for the start of Season 1: New Order, which will launch in the last week of January. So, here’s what we know so far in terms of patch notes. 

Even though CoD Mobile has plenty of content in it already, the devs have been rolling out regular updates since launch to keep things fresh. 

These updates are, largely, big new season patches that bring a new theme to the game as well as new characters, new maps, and of course, new equipment like weapons and perks. 

With the first update of 2021, the devs are resetting the counter, so it won’t be Season 14 or Season 15 moving forward. Instead, we’re getting Season 1: New Order, and there are a few flashbacks coming. So, here’s what you need to know.

CoD Mobile takes some of the best parts of previous games and puts them under one umbrella.

CoD Mobile New Order season 14 release date & time

In terms of when the update will be going live, the devs haven’t yet confirmed a date or time, at the time of writing. They’re still dropping clues.

In their January 21 community update, though, they said that the new season will be starting in the last week of the month, with Tuesday, January 26 being used as a date for things potentially kicking off.

Now, that’s not confirmed as we’ve already mentioned, but that day would make sense. It’s also the conclusion of the previous season’s farewell event, so things could easily roll out. We’ll just have to wait and see.

New weapons – FAMAS & SKS

As for new weapons, again, they’re still being cryptic, but it doesn’t take a mastermind to figure out what is being teased.

Two weapons are coming – one resembling, and sounding a lot like the FAMAS from previous CoD titles. There is also another that looks like the SKS that has featured in Modern Warfare and Black Ops releases.

As familiar as they are to longtime CoD fans, these weapons may have their names changed in CoD Mobile. The devs like to have their spin on things, after all.

New map for CoD Mobile 2021 Season 1 – Reclaim

In terms of a new map, again, that’s been teased by the devs. However, if you’re new to CoD Mobile, you might not instantly know what is being teased.

The teaser does bear a resemblance to Picadilly from Modern Warfare, and some fans suggested that it might be something new altogether. However, the answer is a little simpler than that.

The new map for Season 1: New Order will actually be Reclaim, the map from the Season 13 test server. How do we know? Well, there’s a big Christmas tree in the middle of the teaser that lines up what we’ve seen from Reclaim. 

Who is the new character in CoD Mobile Season 1 New Order?

For those fans who like to get a new character at the start of the new season, that tradition should continue here, even with the change to Season 1.

Who will be, though? Well, the devs have teased it being Raul Menendez – who should be a familiar face to Black Ops fans. Though, it hasn’t been confirmed just yet. So, we’ll have to wait and see.

As for bug fixes, weapon nerfs, and buffs, they haven’t been revealed by the devs just yet and should filter out just prior to the start of the new season.

Once they’re here, and we’ve got more confirmed information about Season 1: New Order, we’ll update this post so you won’t miss anything.
