Call of Duty veterans Ian ‘Crimisix’ Porter and James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks have reunited under Dallas Empire with one goal in mind – to lead a powerhouse roster of rising stars to greatness during the Modern Warfare CDL Season.

Clayster and Crimsix are two of the most iconic in-game leaders that Call of Duty has ever seen and, with multiple dynasty-caliber teams in their past, they will be looking to relive the glory days with their new roster.

While the pair are accustomed to winning on the biggest stages, with four Call of Duty World Championships wins between them, they have put together a new team under Dallas Empire, which is stacked with young talent.

Under the new franchised Call of Duty League, the former Complexity duo has been joined by Indervir ‘iLLeY’ Dhaliwal, Anthony ‘Shottzy’ Cuevo-Castro, and Cuyler ‘Huke’ Garland, who have each already proven their ability to outshine many of their competitors.

Dallas Empire was one of the most feared teams coming into the new Call of Duty League and have demonstrated why, with wins at both the Chicago and Los Angeles home series, sitting them at third in the overall CDL rankings.

This new roster, led by Clayster and Crimsix, will be looking to maintain their momentum towards the end of the season, in hopes of building a new empire in Call of Duty.

Zlaner hilariously mocks Warzone fan after he & Dr Disrespect get killed

From tears of joy to tears of pain, a Call of Duty: Warzone player was thrilled to outduel Zlaner and Dr Disrespect until he realized that his Verdansk role model reacted by mocking him live on Twitch.

They say to never meet your heroes, but that can be hard to control when dropping into Verdansk’s randomized lobbies. As a perfect example, TikTok Warzone content creator and streamer, ‘maritimemucker,’ happened to encounter one of his longtime role models, Zlaner, on the roof of Superstore.

Mr. Mucker was running an SKS on the hot drop’s rooftop when a jump-shotting opponent rounded the corner, PP19 Bizon in hand. Mucker was able to turn, hit some jump shots himself, and outduel the foe. Excitedly, he quickly recognized that he had downed an upsurging Warzone star in Zlaner.

Afterward, maritimemucker was eager to check out his role model’s stream. But that ended up in heartbreaking fashion, as it turns out the popular streamer had mocked him right as he and the Doc were mowed down.

@maritimemuckerI don’t mean any disrespect Zlaner but you mocked my voice a lil ya know. Big fan and Kilo main now 💯 ##warzone ##Hotmics ##Zlaner ##drdisrespect ##COD♬ original sound – Maritime Mucker

As mucker shared on TIkTok and Reddit, he was shocked and grinning after killing Zlaner: “I got Zlaner, holy s**t … That is unreal … Huge fan of Z, I’ve been watching his s**t after he finally dropped that stupid Fortnite. Unreal.” 

But when he tuned into Z’s stream, he found out that the Warzone star wasn’t impressed with the 1v1 and had, instead, simply mocked Mucker’s death comms. 

Z’s duo, Dr Disrespect, was able to gun down the low-health maritimemucker, but was also quickly killed by the TikToker’s teammate. That gave Zlaner a chance to hear the death comms (as he dealt enough damage to be rewarded with the kill) and the tilted motivation to go high-pitched in mocking the smaller streamer’s excitement.

If you’re going to run into streamers in Warzone, it’ll probably be at Superstore.

In response, maritimemucker had to recognize that courtliness had been replaced by classic gamer banter: “Alright, I see how it is, Z.” 

So, of course, he proceeded not to insult Zlaner by words, but instead by alluding that the spectacled streamer looks like Bubbles from Trailer Park Boys.

The TikToker roasted Zlaner back by comparing him to Bubbles from Trailer Park Boys.

Ultimately, though, it’s all in good fun and maritimemucker still respects Z tremendously.

When a Reddit commenter suggested that streamers shouldn’t be looked up to, the mocked duelist replied that some Warzone stars deserve the hype: “There are some genuine great streamers out there, Z is one of them.”
