The best European Call of Duty team are still looking to make significant improvements, as they recruit former pro player James “Dominate” Batz to coach the all star Red Reserve roster.

Coming hot of a 2nd place finish at CWL Anaheim, Red Reserve looked near flawless with the exception of their matches against Rise Nation, who of course they lost to in the grand final. 

Despite what was undoubtedly a heartbreaking defeat, the roster of Rhys “Rated” Price”, Trei “Zer0” Morris, Matthew “Skrapz” Marshall and Joseph “Joee” will need to bounce back quickly for their final matches at the CWL Pro League.

And they will be assisted now by the team’s first coach, with the recruitment of Dominate adding to the growing list of top teams with a fifth member.

European rival’s Splyce recently signed legendary player Mark “MarkyB” Bryceland as the squad’s coach, and Red Reserve are now following their example.

Some top North American teams have had coaches since early in the CoD: WWII season, including OpTic Gaming (Tyler “TeePee” Polchow), eUnited (Brian “Saintt” Baroska) and Evil Geniuses (Embry “Bevils” Bevil).

With Red Reserve currently sitting atop of Division A with a 6-1 record, just above Evil Geniuses (5-2), Dominate will be helping the squad maintain their position to secure top seed at playoffs.

Dominate previously played for Team Infused and Splyce during his playing career, and was part of the Epsilon Esports winning squad at Insomnia53, in 2014.

He tried his hand at competing in CoD: WWII, playing alongside veteran Shane “ShAnE” McKerral at CWL Birmingham, but the team only managed a top 40 placing.

Red Reserve will resume their pursuit of the top spot in Division A on Tuesday June 26th, when they will play Echo Fox. The team will also appear on Hot Mic ahead of the matches.


Dr Disrespect rants to himself for 10 mins after accidentally muting mic

Streaming superstar Dr Disrespect accidentally muted his microphone just as he began a legendary-looking rant about Call of Duty: Warzone, and may inadvertently have created a new trend in streaming at the same time.

Doc is undoubtedly one of the biggest personalities out there on the internet, but like anyone else, he can still fall victim to the treacherous mindset of getting tilted. 

Like all professionals, he usually does a good job of keeping the speed, violence, and momentum directed at opponents. But during a recent stream, he experienced one Warzone death due to flashbangs too many and took it out on his desk instead.

With a slam that would make fellow streaming star, xQc, proud, the Two-Time let his desk have it just as he was entering into what seemed like quite the heated exposition on the role of flashes grenades in Warzone.

The only problem was that his smack muted the microphone and he didn’t realize it, leading to what may have been the best mime impression on Twitch for the next 10-plus minutes.

It genuinely seems like the 2019 Streamer of the Year had no idea he was basically just talking to himself, as you can even see him going into bits and continuing to rant before he unmutes. It seemed to work out fine though, as he made a pretty penny in donations from viewers telling him they couldn’t hear.

Was it really a mistake, or a bold new strategy in streaming?

“Well, that’s what happens when you slam sh*t around, you know?” Doc reflected. “I think I got like, $100 bucks from people telling me I’m muted. Hey Alex, next time mute me for like two hours, yeah.”

If Dr Disrespect hasn’t chosen a Halloween costume for this year, maybe going trick-or-treating as a mime might be his best option at this point.

Speaking of Halloween, the good doctor’s annual Doctober costume contest is nearing its conclusion as hundreds of fans have submitted their best cosplays, hoping for a chance to be selected among the best. The winners are due to be announced in the upcoming few days, but you can check out some of the best costume submissions so far here.
