Rostermania is in full swing as players and organizations announce their new teams and leave their old ones.

Fans love to track where their favorite players are going on a moment to moment basis, leading some pros to have fun with the process by teasing and trolling.

For moves that were completed, you can check out our updated hub for Call of Duty Rostermania.

For rumors, jokes and trolls, check out the tweets from CoD pros below.

The fourth member of 100 Thieves remains a mystery, making this a very suspicious time for Nadeshot to reminisce about his good ole days with Scump.

OpTic H3cz responded with a smiling Scump of his own.

Censor wants to be a Black Ops 4 Champion, so reuniting this roster of World Champs – two of them from Black Ops 3 – would be a pretty good way to accomplish that. No word on if Apathy’s different shirt is a signal on the level of The Beatles’ Abbey Road cover.

ACHES also got in on the fun, but in typical ACHES fashion, he included trolls towards his fellow pros as well. The two-time champion is in high demand – next year is boots again.

Even the best AR in the world dreams of running a sub one day. Subs are more fun, plus 100 Thieves already has a main AR.

Speaking of 100 Thieves, 100T Kenny chose a very interesting number of trophy emojis when responding to Nadeshot. Is there a free agent out there with three rings who might want a fourth?

Actually, 100T already announced their fourth. She is an S&D god but needs to prove herself in respawns. Good luck taking 2 and 5 off of a team with Kenny, Fero and Kenny’s Mom.

Slacked and Arcitys were a little more direct in their roster move tweets.

The Black Ops 4 competitive reveal will take place on September 19, which may lead to some more roster rumors or even finalized announcements.

BO4 launches on October 12 and the first tournament of the year will be CWL Las Vegas on December 7.

Dr Disrespect explains how Black Ops Cold War could be “so much more fun”

Dr Disrespect has chimed in on the much-maligned SBMM system used in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and other titles, and although he doesn’t blame Treyarch, the Doc is less than impressed with the system and wants it removed.

Dr Disrespect is all about violence, speed, and momentum. However, he hasn’t been able to spread his wings in Black Ops Cold War and fly like the eagle he was born to be, and he blames it all on SBMM.

SBMM, which stands for skill-based matchmaking, is a system used in many popular games to try and balance out lobbies.

Some players and developers think it’s a good thing, but many others believe it tends to ‘punish’ higher-skilled players like Dr Disrespect. It throws them into lobbies with other elite players, which results in ‘sweaty’ games where everyone is good and trying really hard to win.

The game becomes more serious and less casual, and it demands more effort, which is less than ideal for streamers like the Doc, who want to entertain.

Treyarch
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is one of many games that uses SBMM.

Dr Disrespect has never been one to hold his tongue and mince his words on matters important to him. In his latest stream, he had a frustrating time playing Black Ops Cold War due to SBMM and shared his thoughts.

Man, that SBMM, what a… what a…” he said, struggling to find the words to summarize his rage. “SBMM results to exact same fight every single time.” It’s a sentiment shared by players from many different games and skill brackets.

“It has nothing to do with… game design,” he added.

“Treyarch knocks it out the park… I just think it has something to do with a lot of the technical stuff… I would take that tech out.”

Dr Disrespect isn’t one to hold back on his opinions, especially when it comes to games.

Dr Disrespect knows that it isn’t Treyarchs fault. Instead, he refers to a “third-party” who works with them and “manages all the data and everything.” He says, “they’re able to make all these tweaks, and all that stuff,” and the fact that SBMM is implemented at all is “such a bummer.”

“I want some sheep in my lobbies,” he said. “I want a couple triple peekers. The game could like just be so much more fun. I don’t understand why they have it.”

The related segment begins at 3:38:30 in the video below.

Dr Disrespect isn’t the first person to express his concerns about SBMM, and he won’t be the last. However, the Doc is a pillar in the gaming community. He has also been involved in some behind-the-scenes level design, so his opinion has some weight.

Either way, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is still loads of fun. SBMM might even help you become a better player if you’re willing to embrace it.
