Call of Duty League’s New York Franchise for allegedly trying to poach their players.

Following their success with NYXL in the Overwatch League, Sterling VC, which is backed by the owners of the NY Mets, invested millions to bring a new Call of Duty franchise team to New York.

With the inaugural year of the franchised Call of Duty League set to kick off with the release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, teams such as the NY organization are already looking to acquire some of the best players for their starting rosters in the CDL.

Blizzard EntertainmentSterling VC’s NYXL team have had great success in the Overwatch League.

The New York organization, who was among the first five franchised slots to have been announced by Activision, already looks to be assembling their roster ahead of the final tournament of the 2019 season.

On August 7, Team Reciprocity owner Chad Larsson called out the NY franchise team on social media for attempting to “poach” their players via private messaging.

The Las Vegas based owner reached out requesting that the New York organization contact them directly about their interest in Reciprocity players, who are currently in preparation for the CWL Championship 2019, rather than attempting to privately communicate with the players, without permission.

“I would appreciate you contacting us directly instead of sending private Twitter DM’s to our players, thanks,” Larsson wrote.

Although it is unclear which players have been targeted by the New York organization, many fans expect Dylan to be a high priority for future franchise teams, with some of his recent performances and having some of the highest K/D stats currently in the CWL.

However, Team Reciprocity’s players have a more pressing matter ahead, with the 2019 CWL Championship only a week away from kicking off at the Pauley Pavillion in California on August 14.

They will be looking to improve on their recent fourth place finish at the CWL Finals in Miami in hopes of picking up their first major international trophy and share of the $2 million prize pool.

How to view your Black Ops Cold War stats on PC, PS5 & Xbox

Call of Duty is enjoyed by some of the most competitive gamers around and, of course, competitors want to analyze their performances. Fortunately, there are multiple ways to view your Black Ops Cold War stats, no matter your system of choice.

If you played Modern Warfare or Warzone, then chances are that you’re already somewhat familiar with checking your CoD statistics. Aside from the in-game client, using the website COD Tracker was a very popular way to check, and compare, your numbers when away from your console or PC.

That remains an option for Black Ops Cold War in 2020 and beyond, but players can also check their stats in-game and on the official Call of Duty app. Each method has its own advantages and disadvantages, but they all help you paint a clearer picture of your performance.

Whether you simply want to track your progress as a player or compare yourself to the game’s best, we’ve broken the two ways, outside of the in-game client, that you can check your Black Ops Cold War statistics.

COD Tracker

COD Tracker
COD Tracker gives you an overview of your stats with the options to dive deeper.

COD Tracker’s offering is likely the most thorough option around, as you are able to track a ton of statistics, filter by mode, map, and weapon while comparing yourself to global leaderboards. 

Like Warzone, you can even go back through many of your recent matches to analyze individual performances.

  1. Head to COD Tracker and enter either your Activision ID or your system’s gamer tag
  2. Navigate to the Black Ops Cold War tag
  3. Check out how you stack up against the competition

Call of Duty Companion

The CoD Companion App is a nice alternative for people looking to check numbers on their phone.

The Call of Duty Companion app is a very easy way to access many of your statistics without turning on your PC or console. While it doesn’t have as much data as COD Tracker might give you (and rounds K/D a decimal sooner than Tracker), the UI is very intuitive, with pie charts and line graphs for your numbers and whatnot.

  1. Search “Call of Duty Companion” on your device’s app store or through their website
  2. Download and open
  3. Sign in with your Activision ID or your system’s gamer tag
  4. Navigate to “Player,” then scroll to “Black Ops Cold War” instead of “Modern Warfare” from the drop-down menu

While BOCW’s in-game client may feel somewhat limited in its options for analyzing your performance and place on the leaderboards, these two options each provide a ton of information.

Both provide similar degrees of data with the principal differences coming in their presentation, so it’s really up to you which you prefer to use.
