The Call of Duty League schedule has been adjusted, just a day after veteran Patrick ‘ACHES’ Price raised concerns over the schedules of Atlanta FaZe and Chicago Huntsmen. 

The long-awaited Call of Duty League got off to a shaky start as controversy mounted over the game’s competitive rulings, and players were blindsided by an unfortunately timed Modern Warfare patch.

Regardless, the first weekend of games was full of action and amazing gameplay – somewhat easing the minds of fans. At least that was the case until yet another problem arose, as ACHES pointed out a “massive” concern in the schedule, noting that Huntsmen and FaZe wouldn’t ever be placed in the same group.

Modern Warfare’s CDL kicked off on January 24, but things could have gone smoother.

This was quite concerning for players and fans of the CDL, as every other team was place together at least once, bringing the integrity of the league into question.

However, Call of Duty League officials were quick to respond to this issue through a news post on their website, citing it as an error and quickly putting up an updated schedule.

An official statement reads: “Yesterday, on January 27th, the community discovered an issue on our league website and in broadcast graphics, where the schedule was not being displayed accurately. We have now updated the website to reflect the correct groups and schedule.”

The initial CDL schedule revealed that Chicago and Atlanta would never be in the same group.

The updates affected matches in Chicago and Toronto, resulting in FaZe and Huntsmen both being placed in group A at the start of April on Chicago’s home turf.

“Chicago Home Series – DAL vs OGLA is in Group B, not Group A. LDN vs ATL is in Group A, not Group B. Toronto Home Series – TOR vs LAG was incorrect. TOR vs OGLA is the correct match and has been updated to read accurately on the Schedule page.”

These changes are undoubtedly a positive sign for the CDL going forward, as the league quickly reacted to community feedback and fixed a big problem. If things continue to be resolved in the same way, then there’s no doubt 2020 will be an exciting year for competitive Call of Duty.


Dr Disrespect rants to himself for 10 mins after accidentally muting mic

Streaming superstar Dr Disrespect accidentally muted his microphone just as he began a legendary-looking rant about Call of Duty: Warzone, and may inadvertently have created a new trend in streaming at the same time.

Doc is undoubtedly one of the biggest personalities out there on the internet, but like anyone else, he can still fall victim to the treacherous mindset of getting tilted. 

Like all professionals, he usually does a good job of keeping the speed, violence, and momentum directed at opponents. But during a recent stream, he experienced one Warzone death due to flashbangs too many and took it out on his desk instead.

With a slam that would make fellow streaming star, xQc, proud, the Two-Time let his desk have it just as he was entering into what seemed like quite the heated exposition on the role of flashes grenades in Warzone.

The only problem was that his smack muted the microphone and he didn’t realize it, leading to what may have been the best mime impression on Twitch for the next 10-plus minutes.

It genuinely seems like the 2019 Streamer of the Year had no idea he was basically just talking to himself, as you can even see him going into bits and continuing to rant before he unmutes. It seemed to work out fine though, as he made a pretty penny in donations from viewers telling him they couldn’t hear.

Was it really a mistake, or a bold new strategy in streaming?

“Well, that’s what happens when you slam sh*t around, you know?” Doc reflected. “I think I got like, $100 bucks from people telling me I’m muted. Hey Alex, next time mute me for like two hours, yeah.”

If Dr Disrespect hasn’t chosen a Halloween costume for this year, maybe going trick-or-treating as a mime might be his best option at this point.

Speaking of Halloween, the good doctor’s annual Doctober costume contest is nearing its conclusion as hundreds of fans have submitted their best cosplays, hoping for a chance to be selected among the best. The winners are due to be announced in the upcoming few days, but you can check out some of the best costume submissions so far here.
