Amid reports that Hector ‘H3CZ’ Rodriquez is attempting to reacquire the OpTic Gaming brand, Richard Lewis explains why the NRG CEO may choose to abandon ship and inject a new lease of life into the Greenwall.

Fans were shocked when H3cz sold OpTic Gaming — the esports brand which he turned into one of the biggest organizations in the world — in 2017. He is now the CEO at NRG, the owners of CDL team Chicago Huntsmen.

But now Hector is faced with the toughest decision since he decided to sell OpTic to Infinite… Stick or twist? Per a report citing sources close to the deal, H3CZ is primed to reacquire his beloved OpTic Gaming.

Speaking on the matter, Richard Lewis believes that the NRG CEO has arrived at a crossroads. “If the deal goes through, and Hector gets the CDL slot… He has to get rid of that, or he has to leave the Chicago Huntsmen and NRG.”

OpTic Gaming or Chicago Huntsmen?

According to Lewis, Rodriquez described OpTic as “one of his kids,” which isn’t surprising, given that he was at the forefront of the brand’s expansion; rearing it from its infancy to the esports giant it’s become.

“He loves it that much,” Lewis added. “It’s his brand. He couldn’t stomach what the Immortals group were doing to it, and he felt the same way most of you fans did, when he watched it become the shell and shadow of itself.”

And with that in mind, Hector now faces a novel dilemma — return ‘home’ after building yet another Call of Duty giant with NRG, or stick to his guns with the Chicago Huntsmen and sell OpTic’s CDL slot to avoid the obvious conflict of interest.

“Does he walk away to rebuild OpTic up? I think he’ll be very tempted to and I think NRG will be a little bit nervous.”

Of course, only time will tell whether the reports prove to hold substance and the course of action Hector will take. But for now, long-time fans of the Greenwall are certainly excited at the prospect of returning to more familiar territory.

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

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.
