Maven Misses CouRage So Much, He Accidentally Said His Name Live on CWL Stream

It has been a few months since caster Clint ‘Maven’ Evans and content creator Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop worked together on a Call of Duty World League broadcast.

However, it seems that Maven hasn’t gotten over the fact that his former colleague left the casting ranks to join OpTic Gaming as a streamer and YouTuber.

Handling the broadcast for the July 16 CWL Pro League Challenge, Maven was joined by his usual co-host Joe ‘MerK’ DeLuca.

However, when announcing themselves to the live-stream audience, Maven accidentally introduced MerK as CouRage in front of the thousands of viewers.

“Maven joined by CouRage….. Joe DeLuca? Why did that just come out of my mouth? See ya buddy.”

What followed was a very hilarious and awkward situation, as MerK walked off the stage and could be heard saying “have fun casting this one!”

Incredulous at his own slip up, Maven could not hold back his laughter, as he tried his best to explain himself.

“It’s because that guy tweeted us bro, I’m sorry buddy, I just saw him in my mentions. We have a long past Joe, we have a bright future together!”

As from being former colleagues and roommates, Maven and CouRage are very close friends, and their comical “bromance” interactions were once a constant fixture on social media and Call of Duty broadcasts.

At least CouRage will have the ease of mind knowing that his former co-host still thinks about him sometimes while on the job.

CoD Mobile devs explain why Overkill perk hasn’t been added yet

The Call of Duty Mobile devs have shed a little bit more light on why the Overkill perk hasn’t been added just yet despite being teased for a few seasons now.

With each new Call of Duty Mobile season, fans of the game are treated to a whole batch of new content, typically including a new weapon, new map, new skins, and a new character. 

Back in CoD Mobile Season 8, the Overkill perk was supposed to be added alongside Quick Fix and Shrapnel. Though the other two made it in, Overkill was left locked until being removed not too long ago. 

The removal of the perk, which has been a staple in other CoD titles, has had fans questioning whether the devs are getting rid of it entirely, and now, they’ve shed a little more light on what’s happened.

Overkill was listed a perk for CoD Mobile but was never available.

Following their October 29 Community Update, where they revealed some additional content for Halloween, as well as going over bug fixes for the current season, the devs were quizzed on plenty of different topics – including Overkill. 

Players asked if it was still in the works and if they had any further info to add, given that players have been waiting quite a while to see it. “No, not yet. Still the same situation as before where we aren’t quite comfortable enough with weapon balance after the introduction of Gunsmith,”  the devs replied. 

Adding on to that, they continued: “We need weapon balance to be damn near perfect before we drop Overkill into the mix since that can have a huge effect on weapon balance as well.”

Given that the power of balancing is in the hands of the devs, there’s no telling as to when the mobile game will be balanced enough for Overkill to be introduced. 

Fans who have been waiting for the perk will be hoping that this day comes sooner rather than later, but, we’ll just have to wait and see.
