Red Reserve have eliminated FaZe Clan from the CWL Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs.

With a 3-1 victory, Red have denied the Stage 1 champions the chance to defend their title in Stage 2.

The series opened up with a strong win for Red Reserve, a comfortable 250-184 Sainte Marie du Mont Hardpoint.

FaZe Clan looked in trouble on London Docks Search and Destroy, relinquishing the opening three rounds to Red Reserve, but once they got on the board FaZe pushed their momentum relentlessly. Six straight rounds locked up a 6-3 win and tied the series at 1-1.

A low-scoring Flak Tower swung the series back in Red Reserve’s favor, with neither team able to make much headway for the majority of the game. In the end, Red Reserve’s single flag capture was enough to take a win.

An incredibly tense Gibraltar Hardpoint ended the series. FaZe and Red went back and forth throughout the map, neither team able to find a significant lead. In the final rotation it looked like FaZe Clan were in position to lock it down, but Trei ‘Zer0’ Morris came up clutch with big plays on opposite ends of the map to steal the map for Red, ending the series 3-1.

FaZe Clan’s run ends here with a 5th/6th
placement. Red Reserve advances to the lower bracket semi-finals, where they await the winner between eUnited and UNILAD.

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.
