100 Thieves Call of Duty player Ian ‘Enable’ Wyatt didn’t hold back against OpTic’s Ian “Crimsix” Porter after a scrimmage between the two sides on Twitch.

On March 24, Call of Duty stalwarts 100 Thieves and OpTic Gaming were set to scrim ahead of the start of the cross-division of the CWL Pro League. 

During the scrims, 100 Thieves’ player Sam ‘Octane’ Larew started commenting in Crimsix’s Twitch chat, which the streamer replied to by calling out 100 Thieves for showing up late to the scrimmages.

Shortly afterward, Enable shot back on Twitter, claiming that Crimsix had shown up two hours late every day to the OpTic boot camp that took place ahead of CWL Forth Worth.

“We played you at your boot camp bro don’t lie to your fans,” Enable wrote. “You showed up 2 hours late every day good try tho, [P]orter.”

Crimsix replied claiming that 100 Thieves had refused to play OpTic during the boot camp, a claim that Enable denied as well.

“No one showed up late,” Crimsix wrote. “You guys fucking refused to play us on the third day and you decided to not play Heretics because you set up an SND [challenge] AT A LAN. [Y]ou absolute morons.”

The OpTic boot camp has become a regular occurrence during the Black Ops 4 season, with the most recent edition featuring OpTic, 100 Thieves, Splyce, and Team Heretics. 

At the time of writing, a winner of the scrimmage between 100 Thieves and OpTic has yet to be decided.

OpTic and 100 Thieves will meet during official action in the last CWL match of Week 6 on April 4, and it will be interesting to see how the trash talk evolves until then.

When will Warzone solos return?

The normal BR Solos are not available in Warzone, with Buy Back Solos and Mini Royale Solos taking its place. When will the normal solo mode come back? Well, here’s what we know.

Ever since Warzone released back in March, a number of different modes have been added alongside the normal quads, trios, and duos modes.

You’ve had things like Juggernaut Royale, Buy Back Quads, and even Zombies Royale to celebrate the spooky Halloween period. However, some players just want the normal battle royale mode that they know and love to be available.

Currently, if you just want to play the normal BR mode – where you hop in, loot, use the gulag if you die, and try to be the last player standing – you can only do so in quads, trios, and duos. It’s not available for solos, and players are asking when it’ll be coming back.

Warzone is full of different modes, not just the normal BR formula.

When will BR Solos return to Warzone?

Well, the answer to that question is… it’s up to Raven Software and Activision. They make the call on when the playlists get updated and when things are rotated in and out.

Currently, solo players can only play Buy Back solos – which takes place in Verdansk – and Mini Royale Solos – which takes place on Rebirth Island. The latter of which was rumored to only be lasting until early January, but we’ve blown past that now.

The next big update that looks to be coming to Black Ops Cold War will drop on February 4 – bringing a new Zombies map with it. That could also see major changes come to Warzone, too. However, if enough players kick up a stink about BR solos still being missing, that could push the devs to change whatever plans they’ve got and bring it back sooner rather than later.

Warzone’s solo mode has become incredibly popular since it was added.

Are Warzone solos gone for good?

Whenever something exits the playlist, some fans immediately ask if it’s been scrapped altogether. And no, that’s rarely ever the case.

While modes like Buy Back and Mini Royale add a nice change of pace, sometimes, you just have to stick with the classic battle royale formula. So, don’t worry too much about it possibly being removed forever. That’s really unlikely to be the case.


So, everything points to us seeing normal solos mode return in the near future, it’s just a matter of when Raven and Activision decide to flip the switch and bring it back.

If anything changes, we’ll keep this post updated so you’ll know when you’ll be getting your fix of normal Warzone solos next.
