FaZe Simp hits out at LA Guerrillas coach Bevils over scrim controversy

Atlanta FaZe’s Chirs ‘Simp’ Lehr and LA Guerillas coach Embry ‘Bevils’ Bevils have locked horns on Twitter over the use of CoD Caster during CDL scrims.

As the Call of Duty League continues to progress through its inaugural season, teams are knuckling down to put their stamp on the league.

With the season currently poised in a three-horse race for the top spot, tensions are rising as each respective team attempts to clinch the top spot.

Huntsmen, FaZe and Empire are among those currently in contention for top honors.

Following Activision’s cancellation of all forthcoming CDL home series events in light of the coronavirus outbreak, the league is set to revert to an online format to ensure that the season progresses.

With that in mind, online practice is more essential than ever. And while teams continue to put in the hours on the sticks, two were left toing and froing in a heated debate.

FaZe’s reigning world champ, Simp, ignited the dispute after sending out a Tweet stating “some of these pro teams blow my mind.”

There was no context to Lehr’s Tweet, until Guerrillas’ head coach responded.

“You try to tell us we can’t spectate a scrim last minute out of the blue, because your coaches weren’t there,” Bevils retaliated. “Am I missing the mind blowing part?”

The crux of the issue appeared to be related to the use of CoD Caster while spectating the scrims, which essentially provides coaches with a more dynamic view of the map as the battle unfolds.

Of course, the tool is designed to be used by casters at events, to give spectators a more entertaining perspective of the action.

The whole engagement was over in three minutes, and both parties appeared to go their separate ways and pursue another scrim. Nonetheless, some of their fellow CDL pros tried to see the lighter side of the debate.

With the CDL season effectively suspended until further notice from Activision, teams will be looking to cram in as much practice as possible. Stay tuned to our Call of Duty League hub as we bring you the latest as it unfolds.

Black Ops Cold War leak reveals new Christmas-themed Nuketown

The holidays are right around the corner and it appears as though Black Ops Cold War will be getting into the festive spirit as new leaks have revealed a limited-time version of Nuketown ‘84 on the way.

Nuketown has seen a number of complete makeovers throughout the years. What started as a simple, close-quarters map in Black Ops 1, has been revamped in many unique ways. From a futuristic remake to the latest 80’s themed design and plenty more.

The fan-favorite map isn’t stopping there, however. New leaks and even a quirky bug have all pointed towards a festive takeover coming into effect very soon. There might even be multiple versions of the battlefield all in-game at the one time.

Christmas is coming to Black Ops Cold War in a big way. Not only will Nuketown be covered with festive decorations, but there also appears to be a night-time variant coming as well.

From a leaked preview image of the Nuketown ‘84 map, we’re given our first look at the map from an all-new perspective. Rather than the beaming hot sun lighting things up, Nuketown looks a little different here. A dark sky keeps things mellow while Christmas lights aim to get you in the holiday spirit.

A few Christmas reefs are scattered around while tinsel is layered across almost every surface. From the one angle, however, there doesn’t seem to be any kind of snow or other major difference. Purely just decorations on an otherwise standard Nuketown ‘84.

While the leaked image comes from a reliable source that’s revealed a wide array of content in the past, there’s more to it than just that. Oddly enough, a bizarre glitch from November 25 actually let players see the Christmas decorations in-game for a split moment.

The yet unannounced version of the map randomly came into effect mid-game for one lucky player. They were caught off guard by the interior of a house but the decorations remained in place, even after death.

That should clear up any caution as to whether the Christmas-themed variant is real or not. While there’s no date locked in for this holiday takeover, we can obviously expect to see it in a matter of weeks as December draws to an end.

Nuketown seems to be the only map getting a festive makeover for now. Though there could always be some visual changes on the way for Warzone as well. We’ll have to wait and see.
