European Call of Duty pro players Dylan ‘MadCat’ Daly, David ‘Dqvee’ Davies and Joshua-Lee ‘Joshh’ Sheppard have reacted to their controversial elimination from the CWL 2K Series tournament, where they were forced to forfeit a round in the final Search and Destroy of their quarterfinal match-up. 

MadCat’s team were taking on Shea “QwiKeR” Sweeney’s new roster, when Dqvee called in a Lightning Strike in an attempt to eliminate the final two remaining enemy players during Round 10 of the final map of the series.

Unfortunately, Dqvee had forgotten that the use of killstreaks in Search and Destroy was recently banned by the CWL, meaning that he and his squad were forced to forfeit the round, bringing the score to 5-5.

With Dqvee’s Lightning Strike failing to kill any enemies, and the position of Qwiker known after he took out Joshh, MadCat and his squad felt they shouldn’t have to forfeit a round, and were even more upset when Team Qwiker went on to win Round 11 and eliminate their squad.

Madcat aimed his annoyance at Team QwiKeR’s Dylan “Dylan” Henderson , who the former Splyce man described as a ‘gremlin’, claiming that he was: “One of them kids that do the paper round on his sisters bike with stabilizers.”

Dqvee, who made the unfortunate error that cost his team the round, stated that he had put on “an absolute clinic” after managing to find 17 kills, simply calling the decision to forfeit them a round “a shame.”

Meanwhile, Joshh and Dylan got into a heated argument, with Joshh calling the Northern Irishman “shite” and telling him that he hoped the decision to forfeit them was “worth it.”

While Sheppard and Daly seemed to be placing the blame on Team QwiKeR’s Dylan for making the decision, he took to Reddit to defend their choice to force Team MadCat to forfeit the round, and confirmed that all five members of Team QwiKeR had agreed on the verdict. 

Unfortunately for MadCat and his teammates, their loss spelled the end of their 2K run. However, DQWWN’s tournament isn’t over yet, as they are scheduled to face off against SunnyB and his squad in the semifinals.

Nuketown Easter egg discovered on new Black Ops Cold War map

Black Ops Cold War players have discovered an easter egg that could hint at Nuketown from BO1 on the map Cartel, which is one of the brand new maps made available to fans during the game’s Open Beta.

Everyone knows that Nuketown is the single most popular map in Black Ops history. It’s been a part of every single iteration in the series, even showing up multiple times in one title, if you count the Zombies version of it in BO2. Rumors have even suggested that the map will be showing up in Black Ops Cold War, which is unsurprising, to say the least.

Because of its popularity, it’s only reasonable that the developers would want to start teasing it before it’s added to the game – but most people probably didn’t expect it to show up in one of the beta maps.

The image of Nuketown can be found right before the main hanger in Cartel.

If players go into the back of the map Cartel, which was one of the maps that players didn’t get to experience in the Alpha, they’ll find an image of one of the houses on the classic BO1 map. Does this mean that the classic version of the map will appear in Black Ops Cold War?

Of course, no one knows at this point in time, but some people seem to think so, like YouTuber TheGamingRevolution. And it would make sense, too: With BOCW being a direct sequel to Black Ops 1, having a map pulled straight from that game would fit the time period.

That being said, given that every single version of the map throughout its history has been changed, it would be surprising if the developers didn’t do the same thing this time.

Regardless of what this picture means, it’s nice to see that the developers haven’t forgotten about the classic map, even 10 years after its original launch.
