NAMELESS appears to throw shade at FaZe Clan over new signing

Former Call of Duty pro Anthony ‘NAMELESS’ Wheeler may have taken another shot at FaZe Clan’s new signing Cellium.

NAMELESS had a storied career as a Call of Duty player, but switched over to the analysts desk mid-way through the WW2 competitive season.

The retired pro has been a huge success as an analyst for the Call of Duty World League, bringing his valuable playing experience and insight to matches. However, like almost every single retired player of basketball, baseball, football, soccer, tennis, or any other sport or esport, NAMELESS decided to point out the easier life of young players today.

FaZe Clan officially confirmed the signing of Cellium on December 22 and NAMELESS immediately tweeted an image with the word “blessed,” seemingly a comment on how fortunate Cellium is to go from an online am to FaZe immediately after turning 18.

Cellium was known as one of the top Call of Duty players under the age of 18, but traditionally new players have to prove themselves to huge organizations through LAN performances at major events. The success of Dashy, Temp, TJHaly, Huke and others is leading to a change, with teams starting to realize young talent may be ready for the main stage earlier then anticipated.

This was not the first time NAMELESS pointed out the differences between young players today compared to when he was new on the scene. “Back in the day, you had to prove yourself before getting on a Tier 1 org and playing with elite players,” NAMELESS said in a Tweet. “Nowadays, you just have to fry online and be available. Crazy how times change.” 

Although he did not mention any names, the tweet was sent around the time rumors first surfaced of FaZe dropping Methodz for Cellium.

FaZe’s first event with the new roster will be the massively important CWL Pro League Play-in, which determines the CWL Pro teams for the entire Black Ops 4 season. NAMELESS will most likely be on the desk with a Cellium take you will not want to miss. 

The CWL Pro League Play-in event begins on January 16.

Call of Duty Mobile is gearing up for the start of Season 1: New Order, which will launch in the last week of January. So, here’s what we know so far in terms of patch notes. 

Even though CoD Mobile has plenty of content in it already, the devs have been rolling out regular updates since launch to keep things fresh. 

These updates are, largely, big new season patches that bring a new theme to the game as well as new characters, new maps, and of course, new equipment like weapons and perks. 

With the first update of 2021, the devs are resetting the counter, so it won’t be Season 14 or Season 15 moving forward. Instead, we’re getting Season 1: New Order, and there are a few flashbacks coming. So, here’s what you need to know.

CoD Mobile New Order season 14 release date & time

In terms of when the update will be going live, the devs haven’t yet confirmed a date or time, at the time of writing. They’re still dropping clues.

In their January 21 community update, though, they said that the new season will be starting in the last week of the month, with Tuesday, January 26 being used as a date for things potentially kicking off.

Now, that’s not confirmed as we’ve already mentioned, but that day would make sense. It’s also the conclusion of the previous season’s farewell event, so things could easily roll out. We’ll just have to wait and see.

New weapons – FAMAS & SKS

As for new weapons, again, they’re still being cryptic, but it doesn’t take a mastermind to figure out what is being teased.

Two weapons are coming – one resembling, and sounding a lot like the FAMAS from previous CoD titles. There is also another that looks like the SKS that has featured in Modern Warfare and Black Ops releases.

As familiar as they are to longtime CoD fans, these weapons may have their names changed in CoD Mobile. The devs like to have their spin on things, after all.

New map for CoD Mobile 2021 Season 1 – Reclaim

In terms of a new map, again, that’s been teased by the devs. However, if you’re new to CoD Mobile, you might not instantly know what is being teased.

The teaser does bear a resemblance to Picadilly from Modern Warfare, and some fans suggested that it might be something new altogether. However, the answer is a little simpler than that.

The new map for Season 1: New Order will actually be Reclaim, the map from the Season 13 test server. How do we know? Well, there’s a big Christmas tree in the middle of the teaser that lines up what we’ve seen from Reclaim. 

Who is the new character in CoD Mobile Season 1 New Order?

For those fans who like to get a new character at the start of the new season, that tradition should continue here, even with the change to Season 1.

Who will be, though? Well, the devs have teased it being Raul Menendez – who should be a familiar face to Black Ops fans. Though, it hasn’t been confirmed just yet. So, we’ll have to wait and see.

As for bug fixes, weapon nerfs, and buffs, they haven’t been revealed by the devs just yet and should filter out just prior to the start of the new season.

Once they’re here, and we’ve got more confirmed information about Season 1: New Order, we’ll update this post so you won’t miss anything.
