It’s fair to say that the 100 Thieves Call of Duty team has performed below expectations since the start of the Black Ops 4 season, so Jonathan ‘Pacman’ Tucker’s CWL Pro League prediction came as quite the surprise.

Despite boasting a star-studded roster filled with former champions, 100 Thieves failed to impress at CWL Las Vegas before scraping through the last chance qualifier and immediately deciding that a team change was in order.

FaZe Clan’s Preston ‘Priestahh’ Greiner has been brought in on loan for the duration of the CWL Pro League in place of Maurice ‘Fero’ Henriquez, and Pacman seems to believe that things are about to turn around for Austin ‘SlasheR’ Liddicoat and company.

100 Thieves100 Thieves have struggled so far in Black Ops 4.

“I’m going with 100 Thieves,” the CWL analyst stated when asked who would win the league. “They have a whole six months to focus on what’s needed and who always improves his team when it comes time? SlasheR.

“In Infinite Warfare SlasheR’s team was placing top 24. Worse than they are now. He stuck with the team, they went from top 24 to second at champs. I’m telling you that he has a way of improving his team over time.”

Pacman, a former professional player turned analyst, was taking part in the CWL’s popular ‘Trading Shots’ talk show where members of the broadcast team go to war over competitive CoD topics, but his CWL Pro League Season 1 prediction blew Anthony ‘NAMELESS’ Wheeler’s mind.

“How can you possibly say 100 Thieves after what we’ve seen?” he exclaimed. “They were getting 50 point clubbed at CWL Las Vegas! They were getting beat by teams of players that they’ve never even watch play.

“They were getting destroyed by them at the Pro League qualifier, they barely qualified top two! They’re lucky that they’re in the position they are right now. They pick up a player that couldn’t even qualify on his own team and you expect them to win the Pro League season when we have teams like Splyce, we have teams like OpTic!

“We have teams like eUnited and Luminosity Gaming for god’s sake. You think they’re going to be able to just consistently beat them over the course of a season and then win playoffs? I think 100 Thieves is more of a team that’s going to maybe make a play for CoD champs later in the year.”

Pacman fired back by pointing out that nobody would have predicted Evil Geniuses’ Call of Duty World Championship win in 2018 and that 100 Thieves has time to improve before the season concludes.

However, a LOT of improvements will need to be made, and a fair few stars will need to align, in order for Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag’s organization to turn things around and become a championship calibre Black Ops 4 team.

Warzone Zombies ‘black screen’ glitch makes it impossible to see

The Zombie Royale mode in Warzone was barely a few hours old before frustrating glitches and bugs started popping up — and one of them is just giving players a black screen, making it impossible to see or play properly.

Whenever a new update or patch arrives in Warzone, or any game for that matter, there are likely to be some issues, whether it be balancing, servers or something similar.

That said, it’s usually something you can gloss over and not worry too much about until the next patch — but this doesn’t quite come under that category.

While the map for the new Zombie Royale mode is set at night time, some players are getting a little more darkness than they bargained for.

Zombie Royale sees players fighting off — and even becoming — zombies, in Modern Warfare’s Halloween event.

It wasn’t long before players realized that occasionally they would drop into the mode and be plunged into total darkness, with what people are referring to as the “black screen” glitch.

As shown in the video below — and from accounts by other players — the screen goes completely black except for the HUD, which doesn’t provide massive help when traversing Verdansk and engaging in gunfights.

It essentially gives the players affected no chance of winning their fights, barring some sort of miracle or some incredible callouts from teammates, making it almost impossible to win games.

As you can see in the above video, there are a couple of ways to get rid of the black screen, but they’re not exactly helpful.

One method is to look through the Spotter Scope, which gives you your vision back and can at least be used to see where you are, and you also lose the black screen bug when you become a zombie, which kind of nullifies the point of the game mode in the first place.

It’s unclear what exactly is causing this bug, but expect Infinity Ward to be looking for a fix imminently — with any luck, this problem shouldn’t affect players for too much longer.
