OpTic Gaming’s Kuavo savagely slams ROKKR pro after CDL Champs sweep

OpTic Gaming Los Angeles swept the Minnesota ROKKR and eliminated them from the Call of Duty League Playoffs before icing that bruising with some of the most brutal trash talk we’ve seen this season.

Back in early August, OpTic Gaming posted a video making fun of the ROKKR, whose newest starter, Kaden ‘Exceed’ Stockdale, responded by insinuating that OGLA was getting beaten in scrims against Minnesota.

OpTic’s Zack ‘Drazah’ Jordan and Kenny ‘Kuavo’ Williams took offense to that Tweet back then and, a few weeks later, got to put the nail in the coffin after drubbing Minnesota 3-0.

At the time, it was actually Austin ‘SlasheR’ Liddicoat who got the most involved — noting how ridiculous it was for a recent pickup to talk trash over scrims. But that conversation took a much more intense turn after their postseason matchup played out.

Unfortunately for Exceed, Drazah and Kuavo have a good memory and clearly remembered the earlier banter because they repaid it tenfold after their playoff blowout.

Kenny hit Exceed with a “bye bye, stick to scrims” and included a picture of him hoisting a tournament MVP award from his dominant Team Kaliber days.

Drazah, on the other hand, played it less chill, dropping a “3-0’d when it mattered, dogs**t f**k” on the recently defeated opponent. As far as trash talk and banter go, this has to be some of the spiciest we’ve seen all season — fittingly, given how important this time of the year is.

KUAVO TWEET

Fortunately or unfortunately, depending on which side you’re on, it appears that the OGLA boys kept the trash-talking there. Just as the ROKKR’s season is over, Exceed appears to be done with the banter too: in his postgame tweet, he gave props to the winners and focused on “looking forward to the future.”

 

As for how the rest of the ROKKR players responded to Kenny and Drazah trashing their teammate, publicly it was just Justin ‘SiLLY’ Fargo-Palmer who defended Exceed against Kuavo’s dig, letting the OpTic star know that he was being “toxic.”

But Kuavo responded saying it was only directed at Exceed, not the rest of the Minnesota roster, so at least it’s not all bad blood. Regardless, it will be a long offseason for Exceed and the ROKKR, who finished tied for ninth in the Playoffs and ended their inaugural campaign on a CDL-record 10-match losing streak.

Black Ops Cold War is still a few weeks away from launch, though an early leak appears to have confirmed all 21 Scorestreaks that will be available from day one.

Killstreaks and Scorestreaks have been a staple of the Call of Duty franchise for many years now. Black Ops Cold War is sticking to the formula with a few unique changes, though there might be more streaks to unlock than ever before. 

Treyarch’s next release is set to drop on November 13 though major leaks are already starting to slip through the cracks. We got our first look at a list of Scorestreaks through the game’s early access Alpha and Beta tests. However, that was barely scratching the surface if the new intel holds true.

Black Ops Cold War is set to boast 21 unique streaks at launch. All of which can be earned across multiple lives so long as you’re adding to your total score by tallying kills and completing objectives. While we can’t include the leaked image as to avoid DMCAs, here’s a rundown on each and every streak.

The early access Alpha gave us a look at just a few Black Ops Cold War Scorestreaks.

First up, the cheapest streak in the game appears to be the Incendiary Bow. Just like the War Machine available in the Beta, this will be an equippable weapon to deal extraordinary damage. Next up are a few familiar inclusions on the cheaper side of things. The RC-XD, Spy Plane, Counter Spy Plane, and Care Package are all to be expected. Though one new streak stands out.

At 700 points, players will seemingly be able to equip some armor just like in Warzone. The icon displays a bulletproof vest, so additional health could be on the menu in the core multiplayer experience

The Flamethrower is another fresh addition that we haven’t seen yet, while the Death Machine is reportedly also making a return. As we scale up to the more expensive streaks, a Hand Cannon is available for 2250 points. There’s no telling just how this one might work, though it could provide a One In The Chamber style buff.

At the very end of the list is the expected AI and pilotable Scorestreaks. You’ve got the Attack Helicopter and Chopper Gunner alongside a VTOL Escort and the Gunship to round things out. You’ll need to go on an absolute tear to unlock the final streak, however, as it’s placed at 10,000 points.

Below is a complete list of all Scorestreaks coming to Black Ops Cold War.

All 21 Scorestreaks in Black Ops Cold War

  • Incendiary Bow – 500
  • RC-XD – 600
  • Armor – 700

  • Cruise Missile – 1,750

  • Napalm Strike – 2,500
  • Air Patrol – 3,000
  • War Machine – 3,250
  • Strafe Run – 3,500
  • Attack Helicopter – 4,000
  • H.A.R.P. – 5,000

Outside of AI-controlled air support, there will be a few pilotable streaks as usual in Black Ops Cold War.

Obviously, it’s worth taking this information with a grain of salt for now. There’s a good chance this information comes from an earlier build of the game. Some Streaks may have been removed or significantly changed already. 

Be sure to keep your eyes peeled over the coming days, however. If early copies of the game are already out in the wild, more leaks will likely be on the way.
