Call of Duty roster during the last roster change period of the 2019 season, with Nick ‘Nolson’ Nolson seemingly set to step aside.

Call of Duty’s final Rostermania period for the Black Ops 4 season is upon us, as teams gear up for the home stretch of the competitive season.

With the window to make moves only open until June 20, teams have already made a few tweaks ahead of what could be an incredibly frantic period. Spanish squad Team Heretics set things rolling with their change, but they might not be alone as Splyce are seemingly set to make a move of their own.

@SplyceSplyce looked to be a top squad in Black Ops 4 but have yet to find themselves as winners despite stellar performances.

Following their disappointing 7-8th place finish at CWL Anaheim, Splyce star Daniel ‘Loony’ Loza thanked Nick ‘Nolson’ Nolson – who initially joined as the team’s substitute before replacing Lamar ‘Accuracy’ Abedi – for stepping in.

Loony tweeted: “I appreciate you for filling in for us the last week of the pro league and at Anaheim. You took a risk and I thank you for that. The 2 wins you helped us get at the league were huge. Hope you learned something from it. Best of luck to you! @NolsonCoD

Who could Splyce pick up?

While a change to the Splyce roster hasn’t been confirmed, thanking Nolson for his service would suggest that the North American-European mix squad would have some irons in the fire.

Prior to Nolson joining the active roster, Splyce had been linked with a move for Luminosity Gaming’s Pierce ‘Gunless’ Hillman following his removal from the team’s starting roster. Gunless remains on the bench for Luminosity and could easily find himself as a key piece in this Rostermania period.

It remains to be seen who the team decides is the right fit for them, especially with players continuing to drop off teams as restricted free agents. They won’t have much time to deliberate, as the window slams shut and rosters are locked in for the remainder of the season on Thursday.

Treyarch responds to game-breaking Black Ops Cold War controller bug

You may have had your controller disconnect randomly while playing the Black Ops Cold War beta. Rest assured, you’re not alone and the developers at Treyarch are fully aware of the game-breaking issue.

The Black Ops Cold War beta went live on Thursday, October 8. If you’ve been grinding throughout the PlayStation 4 period of the test, there’s a good chance you’ve encountered a few problems. After all, that’s the point of a beta.

From critical network issues to a sliding bug that made players faster than ever, a handful of problems have already been addressed, though one truly “game-breaking” glitch is still weighing the experience down for some. 

If you’re playing with a controller, which the majority of PS4 players are, you need to be cautious of this one. Seemingly at random, your controller can outright switch off and leave you defenseless.

Having your controller disconnect could leave you stranded as an easy target.

Regardless of whether your controller is plugged in or wireless, whether it’s fully charged or running low, this bug can strike at any time. When loading into a map, your device can randomly be shut off without warning. 

“As soon as I got to the select class, my controller turned off,” FrostByte2048 said.

From here, there’s no way to turn it back on midway through the game. Even after being “kicked for inactivity,” they couldn’t get the Dualshock back up and running. The only solution “was to reset [the] PS4 by holding the power button.”

It turns out this is quite a common issue as dozens of players chimed in with similar experiences from the beta. We’ve even encountered the problem first-hand here at Dexerto too. However, Treyarch is fully aware and trying to push out a fix as soon as possible.

“Our team is investigating issues like these,” Treyarch dev FoxhoundFPS responded. They even highlighted other instances of the bug, ensuring they’re on top of it.

There’s no telling what causes the disconnect, though some players believe it to be map specific. Cartel could be the main culprit, though the problem can still arise on other maps. Be sure to double-check at the start of every game just to be safe.

With the beta moving to all platforms from October 15 onwards, perhaps a fix will be included as the early access goes live once again.
