Modern Warfare’s broken Domination mode is giving teams free points

Domination has long been one of the most popular modes in Call of Duty, but it’s now completely broken in Modern Warfare and players are enraged at it.

In Modern Warfare, Domination goes up to 200 points, with teams earning one point every five seconds for each flag they hold. This can make for some close matches, especially if the B flag is closely contested for the duration of the match, and at CDL Dallas we even saw a Domination match result in a tie.

Despite how the game mode is intended to work, sometimes that just doesn’t work out, as evidenced by the below clip, in which the scoring clearly isn’t working as intended.

Domination has been a staple CoD mode for years.

The video below, which was captured by Modern Warfare player cabose369, shows exactly why the mode is broken since the Season 3 update.

As you can see, at one point the Redditor’s team is overtaken by his opponents as they capture B but, when 7 points behind, they recapture B and should catch up with them after about 30 seconds.

Instead, the deficit doesn’t reduce at all, flicking between 7, 8 and even 11 points, despite Cabose’s team holding two flags and the opponents only holding onto one.

It seems impossible to explain something like this – cabose is clearly holding two flags but it’s almost as if the game simply doesn’t recognize it. That said, it also doesn’t properly calculate the enemy team’s score, as evidenced by the fact that it occasionally goes up to 11 points ahead of cabose, ultimately costing them the match.

Some responses suggested it could be a bug, combining Domination and new game mode Deathmatch Domination, which also rewards players based on kills as well as flags held. Infinity Ward are yet to comment on the situation so we’ll just have to wait and see if a fix or explanation is on the way anytime soon.

Dr Disrespect wants to join Nadeshot by owning “powerhouse” CDL team

Following announcements that Hector ‘H3CZ’ Rodriguez had reacquired OpTic Gaming and Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag bought a Call of Duty League spot, Dr Disrespect has, once again, teased the possibility of buying a CDL team.

This is not the first time that the Doc has alluded to the Champions Club having a chance to represent at CDL Champs, and it appears unlikely to be the last. Back in early October, the man known as the Two-Time Champ suggested that he could get involved in Call of Duty ownership.

When asked about owning a CDL franchise, Doc, whose real name is Guy Beahm, responded intriguingly: “Will I have my own? Probably not. Will I be a part as a shareholder? You never know…”

Now, he appears to be doubling down on that interest, as the FPS icon applauded H3CZ and Nadeshot’s moves before imagining how special it would be for him to have his own team. In a YouTube video involving his Warzone gameplay, the Doc took an opportunity to discuss how exciting it would be for him and his fanbase to get involved in the esport.

For mobile users, segment begins at 11:38.

“You know what I was thinking about yesterday, champs? I think it’s fantastic that H3CZ is back in the league, Call of Duty, as an owner. And Nadeshot … Just imagine, ‘Doc has this team.’”

Doc has clearly not stopped dwelling on the idea of CDL ownership and the league’s recent organizational news may have given him an added bump in the desire department. H3CZ is an owner who continues to regularly put out vlog content while Nadeshot is an owner who streams on Twitch, both proving how entertaining it is for fans to have owners who invest in their own content.

Nadeshot’s LA Thieves announcement rocked the CDL world.

Doc then elaborated on his interest, colorfully spelling out, in third person, how fun it would be for Call of Duty if he was part of an ownership group: “Now we got a narrative going. I feel like Doc can really shake up that narrative with a powerhouse team … the team would automatically adopt the Champions Club.”

With H3CZ uniting the Green Wall under OpTic Chicago and Nadeshot bringing 100T back to CoD with the Los Angeles Thieves (who will also have the world’s first Warzone team), the prospects for the Champions Club getting involved are very exciting. Thus far, there has been no real business moves to earn Doc ownership, but it’s obviously something he’s trying to secure.
