UPDATE – December 6, 2018 (2:10pm EST)

FaZe Clan has officially announced FC Black along with the CWL Vegas roster.

Rumors are spreading of a potential return of the iconic ‘FaZe Black’ name for CWL Vegas, as FaZe Clan are speculated to be fielding an amateur team in addition to their main lineup.

FaZe Clan’s main roster, led by long time members like Dillon ‘Attach’ Price and Tommy ‘ZooMaa’ Paparatto, may not be the only players representing FaZe at the first event of the Black Ops 4 season, if rumors turn out to be accurate.

The most recent CWL 2K winning team, consisting of Tanner ‘Mosh’ Clark, Timothy ‘Phantomz’ Landis, Paul ‘Tisch’ Tischer, Thomas ‘GRVTY’ Malin and ‘Asim’, are yet to announce an organization for CWL Vegas.

However, ‘Asim’ confirmed on Twitter that the roster had signed with a team, and were waiting to making the official announcement – which is said to be FaZe Black.

According to Twitter account @CODBurnerIntel (created to share updates from the infamous rostermania leaker ‘CoDBurner’), FaZe Black will be recruiting this open bracket team.

This rumor was later bolstered by the appearance of the name ‘FC Black’ on the official Open Winners Bracket on the MLG website, ahead of CWL Vegas, spotted by Reddit user u/pottsy3.

One of the players, ‘GRVTY’, has been close friends with FaZe Clan player James ‘Crowder’ Crowder (formerly Replays), and so it is possible a good word has been put in by his friend.

Adding more fuel to the speculation was a response from FaZe Clan’s Attach, following Asim’s post that they were announced their organization for Vegas soon. Attach simply replies ‘I wonder who it is’.

One slight complicating factor is that organizations are not permitted to have two teams competing in the CWL Pro League, so if both the main FaZe roster and this up and coming team were to qualify, the FaZe Black team would need to look for new representation.

Pro League teams in the 2019 season must also select one substitute player, meaning that even if this roster was to miss out on the Pro League, FaZe may look to keep one of the players on as their sub.

This is all speculation at this point, with an official announcement still to come from the CWL 2K winning team.

  • Thomas ‘GRVTY’ Malin
  • Paul ‘Tisch’ Tischler

Black Ops Cold War bug removes grass on Cartel and players are loving it

Ever since the beta, Black Ops Cold War players have been complaining about the grass on the map Cartel, claiming that it’s too high and can block visibility. Now, a bug is eliminating that grass and players are apparently loving it. 

When the Black Ops Cold War beta first launched and players had the opportunity to try out all the maps the prerelease version had to offer, one stood out among the rest because of its terrible visibility: Cartel. While the outskirts are fine and pretty open, the center is generally considered a nightmare because of incredibly tall grass that blocks sightlines.

Ever since then, fans have been complaining about the visibility and when the game launched, nothing about the visibility was changed in any drastic way. Now, all of those complaints are being resolved in Black Ops Cold War – all thanks to a bug.

According to a few Reddit posts, fans have been experiencing a bug on Cartel that essentially removes the extremely tall grass. As one can see from the pictures, the glitch gives the map a way more open feeling and allows players to see the center more easily than the normal version.

Response to the no-grass version has been overwhelmingly positive, with some people calling the bug “beautiful” and “how Cartel should be.” User bobagolf pointed out in one of the more popular posts that it looked so nice that it “makes it look like the version with the bushes should be the bugged version.”

To be clear, it’s unknown whether or not this glitch is new. Some players were reporting that they got it “early on” but considering at least three separate posts were added to Reddit talking about it in the span of 24 hours, it seems like, at the very least, it is now happening more frequently.

Normally, it’s easy to hope for a quick fix from the developers, but considering most players seem to be in love with the version, it may be in everyone’s best interest if Treyarch just makes it a permanent feature of the map and removes the grass entirely. Only time will tell what they’ll end up doing.
