Nadeshot Drops a Major Hint About When 100 Thieves Will Finally Get a Call of Duty Team

100 Thieves owner and CEO Matt ‘Nadeshot’ Haag had dropped a major hint about when his esports organization will finally sign a Call of Duty pro team.

The popular YouTuber was talking about the org’s potential future in CoD esports live on his Twitch stream on May 31st.

Founded in April of 2016, 100 Thieves went through a relatively long period of inactivity before exploding onto the League of Legends scene in 2018 and establishing itself as one of the most promising esports organizations in North America.

However, despite this strong success, many fans have continuously asked and requested Nadeshot to introduce 100 Thieves into competitive Call of Duty, where he initially earned his fame during a long stint as a pro player for OpTic Gaming.

While Nadeshot has repeatedly said that he plans on steering his org in the direction of CoD esports, his latest comments mark the first time he has provided a legitimate time frame.

“I said we’re going to have a Call of Duty team this year, okay. We will have a Call of Duty team this year. But I didn’t say when.”

His remark about “the comments made in the chat” is in reference to him typing out this comment in the chat box of the Call of Duty stream during the highly anticipated match between OpTic Gaming and Luminosity Gaming at the CWL Pro League.

The cryptic way he was talking about the subject on his stream could suggest that “this year” could very well mean the end of the year, when CoD: Black Ops 4 is scheduled to be released. 

It would be very unlikely that 100 Thieves would try and field a Call of Duty team during the remainder of the current WWII season, which is currently entering its final stages.

It should be noted that 100 Thieves did have a brief stint in competitive CoD during the Black Ops 3 season in 2016. 

However, that experiment proved to be highly unsuccessful as they placed very poorly at the MLG Anaheim Open before coming in last in the NA CWL Stage 2 Regular Season.

Warzone Zombies ‘black screen’ glitch makes it impossible to see

The Zombie Royale mode in Warzone was barely a few hours old before frustrating glitches and bugs started popping up — and one of them is just giving players a black screen, making it impossible to see or play properly.

Whenever a new update or patch arrives in Warzone, or any game for that matter, there are likely to be some issues, whether it be balancing, servers or something similar.

That said, it’s usually something you can gloss over and not worry too much about until the next patch — but this doesn’t quite come under that category.

While the map for the new Zombie Royale mode is set at night time, some players are getting a little more darkness than they bargained for.

Zombie Royale sees players fighting off — and even becoming — zombies, in Modern Warfare’s Halloween event.

It wasn’t long before players realized that occasionally they would drop into the mode and be plunged into total darkness, with what people are referring to as the “black screen” glitch.

As shown in the video below — and from accounts by other players — the screen goes completely black except for the HUD, which doesn’t provide massive help when traversing Verdansk and engaging in gunfights.

It essentially gives the players affected no chance of winning their fights, barring some sort of miracle or some incredible callouts from teammates, making it almost impossible to win games.

As you can see in the above video, there are a couple of ways to get rid of the black screen, but they’re not exactly helpful.

One method is to look through the Spotter Scope, which gives you your vision back and can at least be used to see where you are, and you also lose the black screen bug when you become a zombie, which kind of nullifies the point of the game mode in the first place.

It’s unclear what exactly is causing this bug, but expect Infinity Ward to be looking for a fix imminently — with any luck, this problem shouldn’t affect players for too much longer.
