Banned FIFA pro Kurt ‘Kurt0411’ Fenech has once again lashed out at Chicago Huntsmen CoD stars Seth ‘Scump’ Abner and Matthew ‘Formal’ Piper, calling them “self-entitled frauds” after they neglected to acknowledge his stream host.

In a video published on January 21, in which Kurt explains how he “rattled an entire community, fanbase and nation in one night,” Kurt calls out not only Scump and FormaL, with whom he has had the most problems with, but other Call of Duty personalities and the community itself.

The drama went viral on social media, with parties from both sides attacking each other, despite Scump and Formal themselves trying to simply stay out of any engagement with the banned FIFA player. However, Kurt has not let it end there.

Kurt has not had the best introduction to the Call of Duty community.

Kurt has been known for being outspoken in the past, which has seen him face some scrutiny in the FIFA scene, but now he’s expanded his horizons.

Kurt reiterates once again that he isn’t going to be hosting Call of Duty players anymore, but also says that “their game is deader than ours” when explaining why Call of Duty should get more viewers.

Talking about the moment he raided Formal, he says that he understood they were scrimming but that they still looked over and saw the notification, and implies that they chose to ignore it. He says he is “done raiding CoD guys” and calls them “nothing but self-entitled frauds”, saying that no matter who raids you from what game, you should thank them for it.

While talking about the wider Call of Duty community, Kurt also calls out NRG co-CEO Hector ‘H3CZ’ Rodriguez. He puts a screenshot on the screen to show that H3CZ had blocked him after the tweet, saying: “The OpTic guy blocked me, the guy who used to run OpTic, the guy that sold out an entire damn franchise, for his soul, for a few extra bucks.”

Directly addressing H3CZ, Kurt asks “Who do you think you are” for him to have the “audacity” to hate on and block him.

He also goes on to refer to Damon ‘Karma’ Barlow as “like 30 years old, still living on past glory, guy is a washed-up bum.” Karma had called Kurt a “grade A pr**k” over his initial post about FormaL and Scump.

It appears Kurt has had enough of the Call of Duty esports community, and though the drama has brought out some of the best memes and worst sides of both the FIFA and CoD communities, this may be the end of the line for this particular beef.

Further into the video, Kurt also calls out fellow FIFA pro Spencer ‘Gorilla’ Ealing for losing to popular streamer Castro1021, calling it “embarrassing” and saying that he would never lose to Castro, no matter what.

CoD Mobile Season 1 New Order early patch notes: Weapons, new map, release date, more

Call of Duty Mobile is gearing up for the start of Season 1: New Order, which will launch in the last week of January. So, here’s what we know so far in terms of patch notes. 

Even though CoD Mobile has plenty of content in it already, the devs have been rolling out regular updates since launch to keep things fresh. 

These updates are, largely, big new season patches that bring a new theme to the game as well as new characters, new maps, and of course, new equipment like weapons and perks. 

With the first update of 2021, the devs are resetting the counter, so it won’t be Season 14 or Season 15 moving forward. Instead, we’re getting Season 1: New Order, and there are a few flashbacks coming. So, here’s what you need to know.

CoD Mobile takes some of the best parts of previous games and puts them under one umbrella.

CoD Mobile New Order season 14 release date & time

In terms of when the update will be going live, the devs haven’t yet confirmed a date or time, at the time of writing. They’re still dropping clues.

In their January 21 community update, though, they said that the new season will be starting in the last week of the month, with Tuesday, January 26 being used as a date for things potentially kicking off.

Now, that’s not confirmed as we’ve already mentioned, but that day would make sense. It’s also the conclusion of the previous season’s farewell event, so things could easily roll out. We’ll just have to wait and see.

New weapons – FAMAS & SKS

As for new weapons, again, they’re still being cryptic, but it doesn’t take a mastermind to figure out what is being teased.

Two weapons are coming – one resembling, and sounding a lot like the FAMAS from previous CoD titles. There is also another that looks like the SKS that has featured in Modern Warfare and Black Ops releases.

As familiar as they are to longtime CoD fans, these weapons may have their names changed in CoD Mobile. The devs like to have their spin on things, after all.

New map for CoD Mobile 2021 Season 1 – Reclaim

In terms of a new map, again, that’s been teased by the devs. However, if you’re new to CoD Mobile, you might not instantly know what is being teased.

The teaser does bear a resemblance to Picadilly from Modern Warfare, and some fans suggested that it might be something new altogether. However, the answer is a little simpler than that.

The new map for Season 1: New Order will actually be Reclaim, the map from the Season 13 test server. How do we know? Well, there’s a big Christmas tree in the middle of the teaser that lines up what we’ve seen from Reclaim. 

Who is the new character in CoD Mobile Season 1 New Order?

For those fans who like to get a new character at the start of the new season, that tradition should continue here, even with the change to Season 1.

Who will be, though? Well, the devs have teased it being Raul Menendez – who should be a familiar face to Black Ops fans. Though, it hasn’t been confirmed just yet. So, we’ll have to wait and see.

As for bug fixes, weapon nerfs, and buffs, they haven’t been revealed by the devs just yet and should filter out just prior to the start of the new season.

Once they’re here, and we’ve got more confirmed information about Season 1: New Order, we’ll update this post so you won’t miss anything.
