As Rostermania begins to heat up ahead ofCall of Duty roster.

Gen.G have been one of the biggest surprises of the CWL Pro League thus far, managing to put together an impressive 6-1 record to top Division A.

Despite the success seen from the team over their first two weeks of the Pro League, it looks as though Gen.G has decided to shake things up in a big way by moving on from the star player.

While SpaceLy is surely the cornerstone of the Gen.G roster, having led them through negotiations during the entire Black Ops 4 season, even he wasn’t safe from another Rostermania surprise. 

“Exploring my options since the team decided it was in their best interest to replace me,” tweeted SpaceLy on March 6.

While many saw these initial comments as SpaceLy taking some jabs at the organization, he later clarified that this situation isn’t their fault in any way. 

“GenG is a phenomal organization and I truly wish them nothing but the best like they deserve,” SpaceLy explained. “This [roster move] happening isn’t their fault and any negative comments should not be directed towards them. It just is what it is at this point.”

Even though SpaceLy initially made no mention of who Gen.G decided to bring in as his replacement, word quickly got out that Dylan ‘Envoy’ Hannon was up next for the Gen.G squad.

Envoy is currently with Midnight Esports, has been dealing with some roster drama of his own, tweeting a cryptic message on March 2 promising to speak his mind once he is able to.

Any moves involving either team will come as quite the surprise since Midnight is sitting right behind Gen.G at the top of Division A with a 5-2 record. 

As with all roster moves during the frantic Rostermania period, nothing is set in stone until there’s been official confirmation from the teams involved.

With only nine days left until the event kicks off on March 15 and plenty of rumors about potential moves floating around, you can bet that this won’t be last major move we hear about.

Call of Duty players may want to avoid playing Black Ops Cold War on their next-gen PlayStation 5s as reports are surfacing that the game is bricking consoles.

While the latest entry in the long-running CoD series had been met with praise, there have been some notable issues with the game, especially when it pertains to new hardware.

Aside from the issues players may be having with maps such as Miami or camo challenges the community deems unfair, there is a major problem with the game breaking PS5s.

In a now-viral post on Reddit, one user described their experience with the FPS and how it damaged their system.

“Game has hard crashed the entire console, only game that had been crashing for me on the PS5,” WillHar270 wrote. “Now when I turn it on none of my games will load without crashing and when games do start to load up the screen fills up with flickering and glitching pixels before the console goes dead.”

“If Cold War is crashing your PS5, DO NOT PLAY IT, it will damage your system, in particular for me my GPU,” they further warned.

According to the gamer, after trying everything from a factory reset to even installing system software off a USB drive, nothing worked to fix the console.

Luckily, after contacting Sony, the company reportedly explained that this issue has been happening for others, always with BOCW serving as the lone culprit. As such, the player was able to send their PS5 back and will receive a replacement in a fortnight.

It’s unclear what exactly is causing the issue or if Activision or Sony is to blame, but it should be noted that bricking isn’t limited to just PS5s.

As Dexerto previously reported, Cold War was also causing Xbox Series X bricking problems, which were addressed by the devs.

“We’re investigating all crashes and across the game,” Treyarch community manager Josh ‘FoxhoundFPS’ Torres claimed. However, no further update was made.

Hopefully, a patch is released soon that can prevent these fatal crashes from occurring so players can enjoy the game without worrying about their console bricking.
