FaZe Clan’s Black Ops 4 players have been licking their wounds as they’ll sit on the sidelines for the 2019 CWL Pro League, but the KFC Gaming Twitter account felt it needed to throw a bit of salt on the fallen squad.

FaZe Clan headed into the PLQ as one of the teams expected to move on. But poor performances across four days of pool play and a loss to Overtime Esports in the losers bracket stunned FaZe Clan players and fans, alike.

In a Twitter post, KFC Gaming tagged every member of FaZe Clan’s CoD squad and gave them a suggested they enter the upcoming Farming Simulator League (FSL) instead of watching the CWL regular season.

The Giants Software agriculture game has recently announced a competitive league for their sim, and KFC thinks it could be the ousted roster’s new lifeline.

“Something to do instead of watching CWL lads?” KFC Gaming tweeted with all five members tagged.

It seems that with one tweet KFC Gaming was targeting two entities, as the tweet seems to point that the roster should enter the irregular new esport.

CWLThe CWL Pro League Qualifiers shocked spectators as FaZe Clan couldn’t muster better results through the week-long event.

The jab was met with incredible reception from Twitter users, since there was just so many odd components mixed into a single moment.

FaZe Clan has gotten a lot of gripe since the famous org failed to qualify for the Pro League even after fielding two teams, but that didn’t stop some from reveling in the jab.

Modern Warfare & Warzone Oct 28 update nerfs JAK-12 shotgun: patch notes

A new Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone patch, deployed on October 28, nerfs Season 6’s JAK-12 shotgun while addressing a few bugged issues across Verdansk and multiplayer playlists.

The R9-0 shotgun with Dragon’s Breath rounds may be the most popular shottie in Call of Duty right now, following nerfs to the Origin-12, but it’s not the one Infinity Ward is most concerned with fixing. Instead, the developers have tuned the JAK-12, explicitly addressing two of its attachments: the Drum Mags and FRAG-12 Ammo.

While players, and particularly Warzone fans, may feel that the R9-0 is the hefty close-quarters gun most worthy of adjustments, Infinity Ward have gotten ahead of the curve and looked to fix its recent peer. The two nerfs to the JAK-12 contrastingly impact its mobility when stocked with a drum and its firing rate when stocked with the somewhat-recently buffed shotgun slugs.

Elsewhere, the developers have made some changes to playlists due to bugs and fixed some exploits. Unfortunately, Shipment still remains off of the menu.

In Season 6, Infinity Ward buffed shotgun slugs so that they would feel more accurate and register hits at further ranges. This, coupled with the surprising efficiency of the JAK-12’s drums, likely prompted the nerfs to both sorts of ammunition attachments. But, with 8-R Dragon’s Breath rounds still available, the gun hasn’t been rendered unusable.

As for the other adjustments made with this patch, they mostly surround smaller bugs and exploits. In Verdansk, a Warzone bunker has been reopened, a Zombie Royale exploit has been fixed, and Durable Gas Masks have been removed (but they were already very rare anyway). In multiplayer, the pumpkin heads are back in action while Snipers Only (TDM) has been removed from the playlist due to a bug, with Gunfight – Snipers Only (3v3) taking its place.

October 28 full patch notes

WEAPONS:

  • JAK-12:
    • Reduced movement and ADS speed on JAK-12 Drum Mags
    • Reduced rate of fire on JAK-12 FRAG-12 ammo
    • Updating the JAK-12 FRAG-12 ammo description to say ‘slugs’

GENERAL FIXES:

  • Fix for an issue where the code for Bunker 3 wasn’t functioning as intended
  • Fix for an issue with the Riot Shield that would only occur when players obtained the pumpkin head after getting 3+ kills (pumpkin heads are back on!)
  • Fix for an exploit in Zombie Royale
  • Temporarily removing the Durable Gas Masks from Warzone
  • Removing Snipers Only (TDM) while we fix a bug. We’ll be replacing this mode with Gunfight – Snipers Only (3v3)
