Nameless reveals who OpTic Gaming should pick up to solve CDL issues

Call of Duty League caster and analyst Anthony ‘Nameless’ Wheeler has revealed who he believes OpTic Gaming Los Angeles need to acquire to turn their season around before it’s too late.

OpTic are off to a severely disappointing start, especially considering the fact that this roster is made up of players used to being at the top

But, they’ve failed to really make an impact on the COD League so far, with only two series wins out of the nine they’ve played. Now, Nameless says he believes Toronto Ultra’s Daniel ‘Loony’ Loza is the perfect solution to all of OGLA’s problems.

Loony has won championships in almost every year he’s competed.

On the Call of Duty League’s official ‘Contesting the Point’ show, Nameless and fellow contestant Philip ‘Momo’ Whitfield, were asked what they would do to turn around OGLA’s poor fortunes, and Nameless was the first to respond.

He said: “There’s no other answer that’s better than this: they go to Toronto and say ‘you have a player on the bench, we have some cash. We want Loony.’ If you put Loony on this team, with these players, they will dominate.”

He went on to reference the last time we saw Loony, Austin ‘Slasher’ Liddicoat and Thomas ‘TJHaly’ Haly playing together, during the World War II season, saying that they were “incredible” on that Rise Gaming roster together.

Nameless clearly thinks a lot of Loony, adding that “if he goes to OpTic he fixes it, point blank period… That team will be on another level with him.”

Toronto Ultra are another team that haven’t been having the best season, with regular alterations to the starting line-up to find what their best choices are going forward, but the option to get a player out so they can either cut their wage bill or find a replacement would no doubt be an interesting prospect.

Whether or not something like this actually happens remains to be seen; it’s not as easy as simply going over there and asking Loony to switch over, and with so many moving parts at this point in the season, who knows what will happen?

While Loony is one option, there a number of players currently sat outside of their team’s starting rosters that would love to get back on the main stage – so OpTic aren’t completely lost for choice.

Black Ops Cold War Season 1 teaser all but confirms Rebirth Island map

During the announcement that Black Ops Cold War Season 1 and it’s subsequent Warzone integration would be slightly delayed by six days, the developers released a teaser image that all but confirms that the new map will involve Rebirth Island.

Earlier today, the CoD community was taken aback by the fact that the first post-launch content season for Black Ops Cold War had been officially delayed by six days.

While the delay isn’t long by any stretch of the imagination, many fans have been eager for more content, including the integration with Warzone, which so far we didn’t have many official details on.

But during the news, Treyarch dropped a teaser image for the season which at first glance might not show off much but if you look closely pretty much confirms all of the leaks that have come out over the last month or so.

Rebirth Island was originally teased in the Season 1 roadmap for Black Ops Cold War.

At the top of the teaser image, which says that Season 1 is coming on December 16, fans can see that a few phrases in red blurred out in varying degrees. Upping the brightness of the image in Photoshop reveals a few cool, interesting details.

The first is a set of coordinates at the very top of the image. Inputting that latitude and longitude into Google Maps will take you to the real-life Vozrozhdeniya Island in Uzbekistan, otherwise known as Rebirth Island. Beyond that, the phrase “Rebirth Island” can actually be seen in the image as well.

While both of these can be seen normally in the base image, they are way easier to see after it’s been brightened.

Brighting the teaser image in Photoshop reveals coordinates for the real-life Rebirth Island.

This all but confirms the leaks that Rebirth Island will be coming to the game when the integration happens and given the fact that the developers have already confirmed a new map for the season, it’s almost certainly this one.

As with with any other rumor or speculation, take this with a grain of salt, however, fans will likely be getting their first look at Rebirth Island sometime within the next week or two so keep an eye out for that.

Until then, keep it locked to Dexerto for more about Black Ops Cold War and Warzone.
