Call of Duty YouTuber ‘TheGamingRevolution’ has posted a series of leaks relating to the upcoming Modern Warfare, which he claims are from a reliable source, and states that the co-op mode is intended for the COD World League.

The 2019-20 season of the Call of Duty World League will be the first with the new city-based franchise system, and so there are plenty big changes planned.

One change that no one is expecting though, is for the new co-op mode to feature as part of competitive play, but TheGamingRevolution‘s source claims this will be the case.

Call of DutyLittle is known about the co-op mode, but a new leak may tell us more.

Little is known about the co-op mode thus far, other than the mode’s description sounds similar to the ‘Spec Ops’ mode from MW2, reading: “Squad-up and play cooperatively in a collection of elite operations accessible to all skill levels.”

TheGamingRevolution’s source explains that co-op will be like “‘Hey guys, let’s do the mission where we stop the terrorist from blowing up London”, and that “it’s almost like its own multiplayer experience within itself, if you’re not a fan of the 3-lane PvP.”

Most surprisingly, the source claims “Activision are looking to build it up as an esports mode and are planning for it to be within the COD World League.”

From this description, it’s possible that these player vs player versions of the co-op mode could function similar to Rainbow Six Siege-style hostage rescue and bomb defusal modes, although why they wouldn’t simply be part of the ‘multiplayer’ portion of the game is unclear.

The leaker gives the example of the London mission from the campaign, which will also translate to co-op: “The good guys will try to stop the opposing team from detonating the explosives.”

The missions will have a PvP element, claims TheGamingRevolution.

The YouTuber does clarify that these plans could always be subject to change, but “for the most part this [leak] should be dead on.”

As with all leaks, they should be taken with a pinch of salt, as nothing is certain until Activision or Infinity Ward officially confirm it.

Sources: 100 Thieves acquire OpTic’s CDL spot, represented as LA Thieves

Sources have told Dexerto that 100 Thieves are entering the Call of Duty League by purchasing the spot previously held by OpTic Gaming Los Angeles.

After initially declining to invest in a slot for the Call of Duty League’s inaugural 2020 season, 100 Thieves are re-entering CoD esports after all for the 2021 campaign and beyond.

The spot that had been OpTic Gaming Los Angeles’ has now transferred ownership to the prominent esports organization, and sources have reported that 100T will rebrand the team to LA Thieves.

Immortals Gaming Club, which had purchased OpTic Gaming and one of two Los Angeles CDL franchise spots, recently sold the Green Wall back to Hector ‘H3CZ’ Rodriguez, who will remain in control of the brand.

The OpTic Gaming Los Angeles franchise will end after just one season of competing in the CDL.

At this time, it’s not yet clear whether the league will allow H3CZ to rebrand his Chicago Huntsmen franchise to OpTic. Since he’s already the CEO of Huntsmen, his reacquisition of the OpTic brand meant that control of one of the two teams would eventually have to change hands once again.

According to recent reports from Esports Talk, the CDL was taking the stance that franchises should remain tied to the cities they were initially founded in. Thus, if H3CZ and NRG wanted their team to take on the OpTic Gaming insignia, they would have to sell the Huntsmen spot and move their Call of Duty operations to Los Angeles.

However, in those same reports, it was indicated that despite their initial unwillingness to enter the CDL, 100 Thieves and CEO Matt ‘Nadeshot’ Haag acquiring a spot was not totally out of the question, and now it’s come to fruition.

While brief, 100 Thieves’ first stint in competitive Call of Duty was a highly successful one.

While brief, 100 Thieves’ first stint in Call of Duty esports was a very successful one; the team captured two major trophies in the then-called CoD World League and finished second in the CWL World Championship.

100T’s team became a fan-favorite, and when Nadeshot announced that they’d be leaving the esport due to the transition to franchising, many were left disappointed, especially considering Haag’s extensive CoD background.

The only question that remains now is concerning their roster – whether or not Nadeshot or his org will want to make any personnel changes remains to be seen, but if not, many will still expect the team to be a contender, considering that three of the four players are top-tier with championship experience.

LA THIEVES’ EXPECTED 2021 CDL ROSTER:

  • Austin ‘SlasheR’ Liddicoat
  • Kenny ‘Kuavo’ Williams
  • Thomas ‘TJHaLy’ Haly
  • Zack ‘Drazah’ Jordan

CoD stars SlasheR and Kenny are returning to 100 Thieves as members of LA Thieves.

For SlasheR and Kenny, this will be their second stint with 100T after previously featuring for the org in its lone season of competition. Similarly, General Manager Eric ‘Muddawg’ Sanders is also returning to the red and black after leaving them for OpTic when the org parted ways from CoD esports.
