The roster changes that took place between Stage One and Stage Two of the WWII CWL Pro League bordered on being barely believable.

High profile roster changes happened across the world, including OpTic Gaming’s lineup making the first transfer in three years as a unit, following a poor CWL Seattle

One of the teams that looks completely different heading into Stage Two of the CWL Pro League is the UNILAD squad, who will feature two brand new faces compared to the last time they were in Columbus.

The first swap took place before CWL Seattle with Alex “Alexx” Carpenter replacing Tom ‘Moose’ Handley in the team, but it appeared to make little difference as they placed top 16.

Much to the surprise of the CoD esports community, Matthew ‘Skrapz’ Marshall declared he was attempting to join a new lineup, with Red Reserve the most likely suitors.

Leaving behind his twin brother, Bradley ‘Wuskin’ Marshall, Skrapz joined Red Reserve for £60,000 ($80,000), plus the contract of Josh ‘Joshh’ Shephard.

Joshh didn’t want to stick around in the UNILAD team, which resulted in him being bought by Splyce, and leaving a space wide open for a new player to join.

Despite there only being a few weeks before the team fly out to compete in Division B of the CWL Pro League, there has been no official confirmation by UNILAD about who will be their permanent fourth.

It had been relatively well known within the CoD community that Zack ‘Zed’ Denyer would be joining the side, and MLG has confirmed the move ahead of the official announcement via their CWL Pro League website.

UNILAD will be competing in Group B of the Pro League, starting on May 29th with matches against OpTic Gaming, Luminosity, eUnited, Rise Nation, compLexity Gaming, Mindfreak and Tainted Minds.

Drift0r explains why Warzone “isn’t worth” playing anymore

Popular Call of Duty YouTuber Drift0r has released a new video explaining why he thinks Warzone isn’t worth playing anymore due to the number of cheaters in the game, confirming that he is on the brink of “jumping ship” with the battle royale title.

If you’ve been wondering if/when larger content creators and streamers would abandon Warzone due to the lack of an anti-cheat software then wonder no more.

Today, Drift0r – one of the more prominent content creators in the CoD scene – has made a video slamming Warzone for its inability to deal with all the rampant cheating and it seems like the issue has brought him to a breaking point with the game.

“It’s difficult enough with skill-based matchmaking as it is, having to play the sweatiest top 1% players, that’s a challenge in-and-0f-itself that I don’t particularly like for battle royale, but adding in blatant aim-botters on top of that makes the game painfully unfun,” Drift0r said.

According to Drift0r, the cheating in Warzone has become such a problem that he’s considering leaving the game behind.

In the 10-minute long video, the YouTuber says the cheating problem is making him not want to play the game anymore, claiming that he runs into at least “two to three cheaters a night.”

Because of this, and the fact that interest in the game is waning, he contends that he doesn’t feel like the game is worth playing because of the cheating problem.

“I really like Warzone, you can look at my videos, it’s my number 1 most favorite CoD thing to play, but I’m planning to jump ship,” he said. “I got up this morning and I made the decision: I’m going to go ahead and keep making videos but I’ve gotten to the point where I don’t think it’s worth playing anymore.”

Cheating is a major problem for the CoD community right now. The PC version of Warzone is riddled with cheaters and hackers, whether they use external software or manipulate the skill-based matchmaking system to get lower-tier lobbies, to the point where major tournaments have been ruined and lost integrity.

All indications are that Drift0r is not alone in sharing this sentiment; the content creators he’s talked to feel a similar way, claiming they are all ready to “jump ship” as well once a viable game comes along that protects them from cheaters.

Because of this, it seems like the future of Warzone is going to be a turbulent one if Activision doesn’t do anything about the state of the game soon, especially when it comes to the cheating problem.
