The Florida-based Call of Duty League franchise have announced the full starting roster for the Mutineers’ inaugural season, featuring World Champ Preston ‘Prestinni’ Sanderson.

Mistfits Gaming, owners of the Florida Mayhem in the Overwatch League and a spot in the League of Legends European Championship, are preparing to dive into the CDL with a player sheet filled exciting talent from esports.

The Mutineers’ first foray into the CDL will be represented Bradley ‘Frosty’ Bergstrom, Cesar ‘Skyz’ Bueno, Chance ‘Maux’ Moncivaez, Colt ‘Havok’ McLendon and Prestinni. Former  UYU and Elevate coach Ricky ‘Atura’ Lugo will captain the crew for the upcoming season.

“Now it’s time to do it for Florida”

The full announcement came packaged with preliminary storylines for new fans of the Mutineers to watch out for.

For the first time in the primetime of their pro careers, twin brothers Prestinni and Alec ‘Arcitys’ Sanderson will not be playing under the same banner – something the Mutineers took note of in their roster spotlight.

“My brother and I won a championship together,” the video read as it highlighted Prestinni’s introduction. “Now it’s my turn to win one without him.”

Arcitys will be playing with the Chicago Huntsmen in a star-studded lineup featuring Seth ‘Scump‘ Abner, Matthew ‘FormaL‘ Piper and more.

Similarly, Havok and Maux are looking for a bit of redemption to their CoD careers: “I came second place twice. But if you’re not first you’re last.”

When they were on Gen.G, the team looked nearly unstoppable for a good portion of the 2019 competitive season but they couldn’t etch out trophies at CWL Anaheim and the Pro League Playoffs.

Now they’re teaming up once again to make an impact on the CDL landscape.

Florida Mutineers YouTubeHavok and Maux will look to continue their CoD dominance in 2020, but this time with more hardware to show for than the 2019 season.

Meanwhile, the team made no attempts at hiding the history between General Manager Tom ‘OGRE2’ Ryan and Frosty.

“I cut OGRE2 from my team,” the video showed. “And now he wants me to play for him.”

If anything its an introductory taste of the Mutineer spirit within the team now that the two-time Halo world champ will back up Prestinni under OGRE2’s management.

Florida MutineersSkyz will have plenty of chances to pop-off in the CDL now that he’s backed by huge stars on the Flordia Mutineers.

“I was trained by the best, now my idols turn to rivals,” Skyz’s intro said.

Atura is back to coaching Skyz as the Excelerate Gaming alums will be reunited in the CDL. Skyz is a young gun with a ton of raw talent, and it’ll be interesting to see if Atura can once again elevate the pro’s abilities.

All of the teams in the league have already revealed the players they’ll field onto the CDL stage, with the Florida Mutineers being the last of the dozen to give their players a formal introduction.

Call of Duty fans now have a complete look at who they’ll be rooting for in the upcoming season that kicks off with the January 24 Launch Weekend hosted by the Minnesota RØKKR.

Bizarre Black Ops Cold War bug is making players fall through maps

Black Ops Cold War players are facing an issue which is seeing them completely fall through the maps in the game, and nobody knows why.

As with any new release, Cold War is not without its bugs. Players claim that the game is giving them free Dark Matter camos and, perhaps worst of all, even bricking their Xbox Series X consoles.

One of the major complaints about BOCW has been the lack of maps, with just eight being available at launch — and matters are about to get even worse for Treyarch if this bug persists.

In multiple clips, we’ve seen players simply falling through the map and dying, and it doesn’t seem bound to one particular map either.

Moscow is one of the more popular maps in Black Ops Cold War — but this bug is making it difficult.

The first clip embedded below shows Sturmbrecher64 on Reddit playing out of their spawn on Garrison.

After moving behind some barrels for protection from incoming gunfire, Sturmbrecher just drops right through the floor, even granting his enemy the kill!

Sturmbrecher isn’t the only victim, though, as professional player Dylan ‘Envoy’ Hannon of OpTic Chicago also found himself flying under the map randomly when trying to hold spawns on Moscow Hardpoint.

Needless to say, he didn’t hold the spawns, and actually isn’t the first major problem pros have found on Moscow: his OpTic teammate Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper actually found himself stuck in a glass window, unable to move when attempting to rotate to a different bombsite, with the only option being to throw a nade at his own feet or — in this lucky instance — have Envoy ‘punch’ him out of the spot.

It’s not clear yet whether these points specifically on each map are causing problems for players, or if it’s random, but it’s evidently something that is an issue across the game in general, so Treyarch will likely be finding ways to fix it up as soon as possible.
