OpTic’s Crimsix and Scump break down one of their biggest comebacks at CWL Vegas

In the second episode of Ian ‘Crimsix’ Porter video series “The Pursuit,” he and teammate Seth ‘Scump’ Abner broke down what could have been a devastating loss if not for the late-game heroics from Crimsix.

The Greenwall had been up against the brink falling 2-0 to Splyce in the Winner’s Final just to grind out the eventual reverse-sweep. But the comeback wouldn’t have happened if not for the fire burning inside of Crimsix to keep the flooding opponents from the Hardpoint.

“I told myself, that I’m passing that 40 mark. I’m getting more than 40 wins before I retire,” Crimsix said in explaining what his driving force has been this season.

Scump and Crimsix were reviewing the Splyce match when Scump noticed the mind-numbing effort of his teammate to secure the last tick needed to clutch out the win and prevent a 3-1 score for the opposition.

“You actually just fucking smoked all of them,” a stunned Scump said.

Scump was referring to Crimsix four kill spree at the waning moments of the final Hardpoint that pushed OpTic down 205-247 to a 250-247 win.

“I think I got one kill sliding while healing, and that made all the fucking difference,” Crimsix said.

The 25-year-old American and his OpTic team were held up on the final Hardpoint. It would have been a routine secure if not for a miscalculation from teammate Brandon ‘Dashy’ Otell.

“Wait, [Dashy] gave up the back, that motherfucker,” Scump said.

“Yeah, he did. I wasn’t going to say nothing but I knew it was [Dashy] too,” Crimsix said.

The break in formation caused both Dashy and Scump to be killed by Splyce’s Daniel ‘Loony’ Loza, but a sliding Crimsix came from the far-end of the point to get a crucial sliding trade on the SMG-specialist.

With two teammates down, Crimsix had to hold off two more players funneling from opposite entry points to secure the round tying up the series at 2-2, and keeping the dream alive.

The game was the breaking point for OpTic’s championship run, but it almost wouldn’t have happened if not for the split-second plays of the longtime Call of Duty phenom.

CoD Mobile Season 1 New Order early patch notes: Weapons, new map, release date, more

Call of Duty Mobile is gearing up for the start of Season 1: New Order, which will launch in the last week of January. So, here’s what we know so far in terms of patch notes. 

Even though CoD Mobile has plenty of content in it already, the devs have been rolling out regular updates since launch to keep things fresh. 

These updates are, largely, big new season patches that bring a new theme to the game as well as new characters, new maps, and of course, new equipment like weapons and perks. 

With the first update of 2021, the devs are resetting the counter, so it won’t be Season 14 or Season 15 moving forward. Instead, we’re getting Season 1: New Order, and there are a few flashbacks coming. So, here’s what you need to know.

CoD Mobile takes some of the best parts of previous games and puts them under one umbrella.

CoD Mobile New Order season 14 release date & time

In terms of when the update will be going live, the devs haven’t yet confirmed a date or time, at the time of writing. They’re still dropping clues.

In their January 21 community update, though, they said that the new season will be starting in the last week of the month, with Tuesday, January 26 being used as a date for things potentially kicking off.

Now, that’s not confirmed as we’ve already mentioned, but that day would make sense. It’s also the conclusion of the previous season’s farewell event, so things could easily roll out. We’ll just have to wait and see.

New weapons – FAMAS & SKS

As for new weapons, again, they’re still being cryptic, but it doesn’t take a mastermind to figure out what is being teased.

Two weapons are coming – one resembling, and sounding a lot like the FAMAS from previous CoD titles. There is also another that looks like the SKS that has featured in Modern Warfare and Black Ops releases.

As familiar as they are to longtime CoD fans, these weapons may have their names changed in CoD Mobile. The devs like to have their spin on things, after all.

New map for CoD Mobile 2021 Season 1 – Rebirth

In terms of a new map, again, that’s been teased by the devs. However, if you’re new to CoD Mobile, you might not instantly know what is being teased.

The teaser does bear a resemblance to Picadilly from Modern Warfare, and some fans suggested that it might be something new altogether. However, the answer is a little simpler than that.

The new map for Season 1: New Order will actually be Rebirth, the map from the Season 13 test server. How do we know? Well, there’s a big Christmas tree in the middle of the teaser that lines up what we’ve seen from Rebirth. 

Who is the new character in CoD Mobile Season 1 New Order?

For those fans who like to get a new character at the start of the new season, that tradition should continue here, even with the change to Season 1.

Who will be, though? Well, the devs have teased it being Raul Menendez – who should be a familiar face to Black Ops fans. Though, it hasn’t been confirmed just yet. So, we’ll have to wait and see.

As for bug fixes, weapon nerfs, and buffs, they haven’t been revealed by the devs just yet and should filter out just prior to the start of the new season.

Once they’re here, and we’ve got more confirmed information about Season 1: New Order, we’ll update this post so you won’t miss anything.
