OpTic Gaming‘s Hector ‘H3CZ‘ Rodriguez opened up about his organization’s potential sale on the first ever episode of 100 Thieves CEO Matt ‘Nadeshot‘ Haag’s brand new ‘Self Made’ podcast. 

It has not been easy past few weeks and months for OpTic Gaming, whose parent company Infinite Esports & Entertainment are currently up for sale.

The Immortals esports organization are thought to be the current front-runner to acquire Infinite, and there’s heavy speculation that they would ultimately choose to disband and dissolve the OpTic brand should their bid get accepted. 

Amid all of the rumors, speculation, and leaks, H3CZ appeared on Nadeshot’s new ‘Self Made’ podcast on June 5 to address everything that’s been going with the Green Wall.

OpTic Gaming - YouTubeIt has been a tumultuous past few months for H3CZ, who has said he’s been trying his best to try and save the OpTic brand.

H3CZ confirms OpTic bid

In the podcast, H3CZ confirmed that he had put in a bid to buy back OpTic, something that had been reported previously but had never actually been revealed by the CEO himself.

“Six or seven months ago, I approached the ownership group,” he said. “I said ‘let me get OpTic back.’ I wasn’t asking for a discount, I was trying to make them some money. ‘We gave it a good run, it’s not working.'”

Without explicit stating it, he also strongly suggested that Infinite were favoring Immortals’ bid over his, despite the fact that his offer had been better.

“As of this moment, it’s public obviously, that Immortals is making a bid for it,” he explained. “It wasn’t as good as the bid that I submitted, but for whatever reason…”

DexertoThere are rumors that OpTic’s CoD team could be sold off if Immortals’ bid is excepted, something which H3CZ is trying to avoid.

Why things didn’t work out with Infinite

H3CZ explained that working with Infinite led him to the realization that what was going was simply “not sustainable,” and that the vision of the parent company was not aligning with that of OpTic.

“For me, it was more about the culture and the culture that they were creating within that space,” he explained. “It was not going to fit what we have build for seven years. And you can’t change culture. It takes years to remold the way of thinking of something.”

What happens if Immortals buy Infinite?

One of the more prevalent rumors going on about the OpTic buyout situation is that Immortals will choose to dissolve the brand if they do end up purchasing Infinite.

While Nadeshot said that such a decision would be “dumb from an Immortals’ standpoint,” H3CZ made it clear that he thinks it’s definitely a possibility.

“I’ve seen crazier sh*t,” he said. “I wouldn’t put it past anybody to just do nonsensical stuff in esports.”

Weird Warzone glitch forces players into hearing never-ending rock music

Warzone players have been rocking out to the game’s new vehicle music as they drive through the frozen fields of Verdansk. However, for some, these catchy tunes never end.

There’s no denying that Warzone Season 6 has had its fair share of problems. Aside from the train station teething problems and return of the ‘demon gun’ texture glitch, there have been some new additions to the seemingly ever-growing bugfix list.

So far, Activision has had to fix an overpowered bug that allowed the AS VAL to shoot through unlimited walls, a game-breaking unlimited Stim glitch, and now Modern Warfare fans are reporting a rock and roll related problem. 

While Warzone’s new music tracks certainly liven up your drive time commutes across Verdansk, they can also pose a risk to your game-winning plays. This is particularly true when the music in question doesn’t actually stop. The continuous blare of heavy rock certainly gets us pumped in games like DOOM, but it really doesn’t help in FPS titles like Warzone where you need to hear enemy footsteps.

What is the Warzone music glitch? 

The addition of playable vehicle music certainly isn’t a new feature in Warzone – in fact, players have been able to equip certain CoD related tracks since Season 5. However, music fans can now listen to their favorite tracks from the likes of DMX, Skrillex, Jack Harlow, and iconic themes from across the Call of Duty series. 

Unfortunately, these tunes have caused a rather interesting and mildly infuriating glitch. The bug seems to happen when you or any of your squadmates have any of the game’s War Tracks equipped and enter a vehicle. While this bug may not be that bad when listening to the game’s quieter tracks, things can get incredibly frustrating when the heavy metal Juggernaut theme plays on a loop.

You may be tempted to blow up your vehicle or drive it off the nearest cliff edge, but even this won’t stop the never-ending audio. Some players have reported that they still hear vehicle music, even when they have the audio option turned off in the game’s settings. “The rock music won’t stop, even after getting out of the vehicle. To top it off, my teammate and I had already turned the audio off before the game,” says one frustrated player

“After it just wouldn’t stop and we couldn’t hear A THING, we even destroyed the vehicle in hopes it would quiet down. Ultimately, we just disconnected when we couldn’t take it anymore.” Some Warzone players have even reported that they managed to get to the final ring with the same heavy rock track blaring down their earphones. 

How to fix the Warzone vehicle music glitch

Modern Warfare Juggernaut
Activision / Infinity Ward
It seems the Juggernaut War Track is the most common offender.

Fortunately, some crafty players have discovered that you can fix this pesky audio issue by selecting the Black Ops music pack from the War Tracks menu. Meanwhile, if you encounter the problem mid-game, simply enter another vehicle in the hopes that it fixes the never-ending audio loop. 

There have even been reports that constantly getting in and out of the offending vehicle will eventually fix the issue. Of course, your experience may vary and some of these fixes may not work. Warzone Season 6 certainly seems to be off to a rocky start and it looks like we’ll just have to wait until Activision officially fixes this audio issue in a future patch.
