When FormaL first moved to Luminosity from OpTic Gaming, fans expected the already formidable roster to improve their consistency, but things didn’t go exactly to plan at first.

In their first seven matches in Division B of the CWL Pro League Stage Two, the roster won only three, only two of which were convincing as they only just bettered eUnited in a game five.

The team’s losses stuck out even more however, after losing 3-1 to Rise and being humbled in a 3-0 sweep by FormaL’s former team OpTic, they went on to lose to Mindfreak and UNILAD in 3-2 defeats.

With little break before setting off to Anaheim for their first open event as a roster, most fans had much lower expectations than when they had initially formed, but somehow they turned it around.

They emerged from pool play in 2nd place, with a 3-1 record (10-5 map count) and continued their run in the elimination matches, beating OpTic 3-1, before dropping to Red Reserve 1-3 and falling to the losers bracket.

They took out FaZe and UNILAD in 3-0 sweeps before eventually being eliminated once again at the hands of Red Reserve in another 1-3.

But the improvement was obvious, and Slacked has now explained how LG turned it round so quickly, adapting to playing with FormaL instead of Sam “Larew” Octane.

“We ended up going 3-4 in the league, but that actually ended up helping us tremendously. Switching players between Octane and FormaL, they’re like two completely different AR players. So it was just relearning chemistry as a team and as a unit.”

Slacked also explains that they were previously poor in all three game modes, because they needed to adapt to the different way FormaL played as an AR compared to Octane.

We had to do that in every single game mode. So hardpoint obviously, two out of the five games we got to figure that one out. We were really, really bad at it, went through a lot of time and practice on it. We sat down in a private match, went over setups and things like that.

As far as Search and Destroy goes, we only lost three S&D’s over the entire weekend somehow, when at the league we weren’t too good at it. We spent a lot of time figuring out strategies, what’s comfortable for everyone.

We’ve still obviously got a lot of work to do, but we’ve really, really progressed from day one. Day one we were getting smoked by every single team, and now, I’m pretty confident we could win a championship with our team.

PC players have been receiving a lot of annoying dev 6068 error screens while playing Warzone and Modern Warfare since the release of Season 6. Here’s what you’ll need to know in order to fix the problem.

Crashes and error screens can be incredibly frustrating for players to deal with when attempting to play their favorite games and Warzone has had its fair share of them since its release in March.

One error screen has been appearing for players a lot lately, is a game freeze and crash followed by a “dev 6068 error” during attempts to play online.

PC players have experienced a lot of dev 6068 errors in Season 6

This dev 6068 error is often linked to issues with the computer’s software, such as having a corrupt DirectX installed, rather than a hardware issue. It can be caused by a number of things but having outdated Windows, System Drivers and non-optimal settings for your device, have all been found as causes as well.

As there are multiple ways for this error to occur, there are also a few solutions that have been found to help players to fix this annoying in-game bug. Here’s some of the things that you can do to fix the dev 6068 error.

How to fix dev 6068 error on Warzone

  1. Run Warzone and Modern Warfare as an administrator on your PC.
  2. In task manager, set a high priority on the Call of Duty app to prevent freezes.
  3. Download any updates for your computer’s System Drivers and make sure Windows is up to date.
  4. Open Battle.net launcher and press ‘Scan and Repair’ in the Call of Duty options menu.
  5. Set the Game Window to Borderless in the game’s video settings
  6. Deactivate any game overlays or performance monitoring apps such as Discord, Game Bar, etc.
  7. Disable settings such as Ray Tracing and turn shaders down on Warzone.
  8. Reinstall shaders in the graphics settings.
  9. If all else fails, you could try reinstalling the game to prevent the dev 6068 error.

It is quite unlikely that you will need to try all of these to fix the error, but it could also be caused by a third-party application that conflicts with the Warzone application, meaning you might have to clean boot your system to solve the problem.

Activision previously addressed these game crashes when they first appeared after Season 6, revealing that they were “actively investigating” the issues with Warzone and despite resolving it for some players, it still seems to be a major issue for others.

That’s all the information we have right now on this error code; as always, we’ll continue to bring you the latest as more is announced, so make sure to follow us on @DexertoINTEL for all the latest updates.
