Following CWL Anaheim, some of the casters sat down to discuss the events biggest winners and biggest losers, and Clint “Maven” Evans was brutally honest about his thoughts on Evil Geniuses performance.

Evil Geniuses had come into Anaheim with very high expectations from themselves and fans alike, with a 2nd place finish at the last open event, CWL Seattle, and sitting in 2nd spot in Division A with a 5-2 series record.

Whatever role problems the previous EG lineup had been experiencing seemed completely resolved after the addition of Adam “Assault” Garcia and Justin “SiLLY” Fargo, and the team were proficient in all three game modes.

But Anaheim could not have gone less to plan, after a dismal pool play showing on Friday, a 2-3 against Mindfreak, 1-3 against UNILAD, and a 0-3 sweep from Echo Fox, left them without a series win on day one.

They did recover slightly on Saturday with a win over open bracket team Elevate, and a 3-1 win over Lightning Pandas once in the losers bracket.

But they lost their very next match to eUnited in a brutal game five round 11 loss – despite having been up 5-3 in the final S&D – meaning they failed to win a single S&D at the event, and missed out on Championship Sunday with a top 16 placing.

When asked who the most disappointing team at Anaheim was, Maven said there was no debate:

It is absolutely, without question, Evil Geniuses. There’s no way to argue any other team. They were 5-2 in the Division [A], good at Search and Destroy, everyone has them as a favorite, maybe even a top three favorite.

He continued, explaining that their awful S&D was one of the worst he had seen, and that it was an embarrassing event for the squad.

They come in, they don’t win a single search and destroy, the go 0-8, one of the worst performances I’ve seen from a team that many considered contenders at this actual event. Someone who could maybe make a run to another grand final.

It was incredibly, incredibly disappointing, I’d be embarrassed if I was anyone on that squad.

Activision has officially unveiled all the details about the Haunting of Verdansk event coming to Call of Duty: Warzone, and it’s going to be packed with spooky content. To celebrate, Lionsgate is offering special Texas Chainsaw Massacre-themed content for the game, and we’ve got the details on how to unlock them.

After being leaked around a week ago, Activision has finally unveiled its Saw and Texas Chainsaw Massacre crossovers in Warzone. Players will soon be able to purchase bundles based on the two horror franchises in the in-game store for around $20, and they both come with the usual suspects: ew Operators skins, weapon blueprints, emotes, etc.

Players will also be able to get their hands on a couple of items themed around the Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise without having to put down any cash or COD points at all if they follow some simple steps.

How to unlock the Texas Chainsaw Massacre emblem & calling card?

Unlocking these items is simple – you don’t have to do anything within the actual Modern Warfare or Warzone application to earn them. Instead, just get on their computer or mobile device, go to the film franchise’s main website and follow some easy steps in order to get a free emblem and calling card:

If players want to get their hands on Texas Chainsaw Massacre-themed items, they’ll have to follow the steps below.

After that point, Activision will send you a code for the emblem and calling card within two weeks. It is interesting to note, however, that the fine print on the website says it’ll be available in-game after November 9, 2020, which would technically be three weeks from the announcement, so it’s unknown what the case actually is.

We also don’t technically have a peek at either the calling card or emblem, so it’s anyone’s best guess as to what it actually looks like in-game. More than likely, it’ll be similar to the image seen on the site – but that’s pure speculation at this point.

We’ll update this article with more details and images when they become available.
