Jordan ‘Jkap’ Kaplan spoke with Dexerto following Luminosity’s reverse sweep over tournament favorites Rise Nation.

It has been an up and down year for Luminosity and Jkap, winning CWL Birmingham but failing to qualify for the Stage 2 playoffs after the trade of Octane for Formal.

Jkap spoke on why he thought the team struggled after the roster shake up.

We just weren’t clicking at all. I didn’t play well, [Formal] didn’t play well. A lot of us were just inconsistent, we could’ve played better.

Luminosity ended up in 5th place in their group, three games out of a playoff spot.

The team felt their fortunes changing heading into CWL Champs, thanks to a bootcamp with a rival team.

I think the bootcamp we did with EnVy before [CWL Champs] was really big for us.

Luminosity went undefeated in Champs pool play, but tripped up against Elevate in the knockout stage to set up the elimination match with Rise.

Jkap is no stranger to big performances at CWL Champs, winning two rings and finding himself involved on Championship Sunday seemingly every year. He was asked how this current Luminosity roster compares to his previous great teams.

Coming in, I didn’t really know what to expect from this roster. Obviously we missed Stage 2 [Playoffs], but I still felt we were a better team than what we showed there.

Overall, I was really on the fence with this roster whereas past rosters, the past three years… I came in really confident.

This year we came in far down the power rankings list, but pool play really gave us confidence in our ability and potential.

Luminosity will play in Losers Round 2 on August 18 when the CWL Championships resume.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is practically a household name for FPS fans and non-gamers alike. It’s no shock then that CoD fans were beyond excited at the possibility of a PS5 version of the game. 

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has become a staple title for the CoD franchise. After a recent clarification from an Infinity Ward dev that more content is coming soon fans have jumped back aboard the Modern Warfare hype train.

This announcement had fans scratching their heads over what new content would be released, especially when Black Ops: Cold War and its Warzone season are likely to be the focus of development for some time.

A reddit user, however, has sparked some life into the community by leaking a possible PS5 release for Modern Warfare in the near future.

Modern Warfare is the game that birthed Call of Duty: Warzone, which has exploded into a fully fledged esport.

Modern Warfare on PS5 Leak

A post and possible leak on r/GamingLeaksAndRumours by reddit user asjonesy99 has seized the interest of CoD fans from across the globe.

The post sees the possibility of there being a PS5 version of the title available in the near future. When purchasing the game, the dropdown menu shows the original PS4 version followed by a PS5 version.

The original post states that when he selects this option it becomes locked. After checking a plethora of other games, there are no other options for PS5 versions, so either this is a simple error or CoD are planning a future PS5 update for the game.

While excited, a lot of fans weren’t particularly shocked at this leak simply due to the popularity of Warzone, which launched alongside Modern Warfare in October 2019 and is fully integrated into the game.

The future is of course uncertain, and in turn this means that this could be nothing. However, it’s really exciting to think that Modern Warfare will be back with a bang to continue to inspire future generations of FPS players in the same way it has inspired the current one.
