OpTic Gaming crash out of CWL Forth in second round of Losers Bracket

As CWL Fort Worth rolls on, by far the biggest upset of the entire Black Ops 4 season has seen OpTic Gaming get bounced from the tournament at the hands of Gen.G in the second round of the Losers Bracket. 

The Greenwall came into the Texas tourney as the team to beat in their group comprised of eUnited, Team Envy and Team Reciprocity.


Though their opposition are nothing to scoff at, OpTic had just got back to full-strength with the return of star gunner Brandon ‘Dashy’ Otell and were entering as the CWL Vegas Champions.

MLGThe early going of the CWL Fort Worth is a bit shaky for the legendary team.

Earlier in the week, CWL panelists were discussing which teams were most likely to get out of the so called “Group of Death,” to which they unanimously chose OpTic as the frontrunner.


In a historic change of fate, OpTic lost in their first match against bottom-ranked Team Reciprocity in a game that stunned both audiences and analysts. The defeat marks their first loss offline with their star-studded lineup.

The problems continued from there as OpTic then lost yet another match against Team Envy, which put them at a lackluster 0-2 on the day. 

OpTic managed to beat eUnited 3-0 in their third and final match in Pool D, but their 1-2 record was not enough to push them into the top two. 


Team Reciprocity’s 3-2 win over Team Envy to round off the night ensured that OpTic would start the knockout rounds in the Losers Bracket.

MLGOpTic Gaming were the favorites coming into CWL Fort Worth, but couldn’t live up to the hype.

OpTic came out the gate in the Losers Bracket on fire with a fairly quick 3-0 win over Evil Geniuses that featured a couple major comebacks. 

Up against Gen.G in the second Losers matchup, however, the cracks began to surface once more. 


They pushed things to a decisive Game 5, but it was Gen.G that stood tall in the end and sent the defending CWL Vegas Champs home packing. 

While the loss was certainly disappointing given the team’s level of talent, they can at least feel confident heading back into the CWL Pro League with their entire roster in tow.

Weird Warzone glitch forces players into hearing never-ending rock music

Warzone players have been rocking out to the game’s new vehicle music as they drive through the frozen fields of Verdansk. However, for some, these catchy tunes never end.

There’s no denying that Warzone Season 6 has had its fair share of problems. Aside from the train station teething problems and return of the ‘demon gun’ texture glitch, there have been some new additions to the seemingly ever-growing bugfix list.


So far, Activision has had to fix an overpowered bug that allowed the AS VAL to shoot through unlimited walls, a game-breaking unlimited Stim glitch, and now Modern Warfare fans are reporting a rock and roll related problem. 

While Warzone’s new music tracks certainly liven up your drive time commutes across Verdansk, they can also pose a risk to your game-winning plays. This is particularly true when the music in question doesn’t actually stop. The continuous blare of heavy rock certainly gets us pumped in games like DOOM, but it really doesn’t help in FPS titles like Warzone where you need to hear enemy footsteps. 


What is the Warzone music glitch? 

The addition of playable vehicle music certainly isn’t a new feature in Warzone – in fact, players have been able to equip certain CoD related tracks since Season 5. However, music fans can now listen to their favorite tracks from the likes of DMX, Skrillex, Jack Harlow, and iconic themes from across the Call of Duty series. 

Unfortunately, these tunes have caused a rather interesting and mildly infuriating glitch. The bug seems to happen when you or any of your squadmates have any of the game’s War Tracks equipped and enter a vehicle. While this bug may not be that bad when listening to the game’s quieter tracks, things can get incredibly frustrating when the heavy metal Juggernaut theme plays on a loop.

You may be tempted to blow up your vehicle or drive it off the nearest cliff edge, but even this won’t stop the never-ending audio. Some players have reported that they still hear vehicle music, even when they have the audio option turned off in the game’s settings. “The rock music won’t stop, even after getting out of the vehicle. To top it off, my teammate and I had already turned the audio off before the game,” says one frustrated player


“After it just wouldn’t stop and we couldn’t hear A THING, we even destroyed the vehicle in hopes it would quiet down. Ultimately, we just disconnected when we couldn’t take it anymore.” Some Warzone players have even reported that they managed to get to the final ring with the same heavy rock track blaring down their earphones. 

How to fix the Warzone vehicle music glitch

Modern Warfare Juggernaut

It seems the Juggernaut War Track is the most common offender.

Fortunately, some crafty players have discovered that you can fix this pesky audio issue by selecting the Black Ops music pack from the War Tracks menu. Meanwhile, if you encounter the problem mid-game, simply enter another vehicle in the hopes that it fixes the never-ending audio loop. 

There have even been reports that constantly getting in and out of the offending vehicle will eventually fix the issue. Of course, your experience may vary and some of these fixes may not work. Warzone Season 6 certainly seems to be off to a rocky start and it looks like we’ll just have to wait until Activision officially fixes this audio issue in a future patch.
