North American based esports organization Splyce have signed a new player to their Call of Duty team ahead of the Black Ops 4 season. 

Former Team Kaliber player Lamar ‘Accuracy’ Abedi has officially joined Splyce on October 2, and is currently only the second active player on the roster, along with Jordan ‘Jurd’ Crowley. 

The move was announced via a post on Splyce’s official Twitter page, along with further confirmation from Accuracy on his own social media. 

“Happy to have joined Splyce,” Accuracy tweeted. “I can’t wait for this season to get started.”

One of two tK players to remain with the org for the entirety of the WWII season, Accuracy played an integral role in the team’s highly successful campaign.

TK won three major tournaments last season – CWL Dallas, CWL New Orleans, and CWL Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs – with Accuracy being crowned MVP at the first event. 

Splyce will hope that Accuracy’s experience and leadership will help boost their org back to the heights of CoD esports after what was a difficult second half of the previous season.

After finishing a promising second at CWL Birmingham, Splyce went on to place no higher than 9-12 in the remaining four major events, including a lowly 17-24 at Champs.

As a result, the team decimated its roster, cutting ties with MadCat, Joshh, and Bance, with only Jurd remaining from last season’s squad. 

With the upcoming season looming on the horizon, Splyce still has three open roster spots to fill in order to meet the requirements of the new 5v5 competitive format.

Zlaner hilariously mocks Warzone fan after he & Dr Disrespect get killed

From tears of joy to tears of pain, a Call of Duty: Warzone player was thrilled to outduel Zlaner and Dr Disrespect until he realized that his Verdansk role model reacted by mocking him live on Twitch.

They say to never meet your heroes, but that can be hard to control when dropping into Verdansk’s randomized lobbies. As a perfect example, TikTok Warzone content creator and streamer, ‘maritimemucker,’ happened to encounter one of his longtime role models, Zlaner, on the roof of Superstore.

Mr. Mucker was running an SKS on the hot drop’s rooftop when a jump-shotting opponent rounded the corner, PP19 Bizon in hand. Mucker was able to turn, hit some jump shots himself, and outduel the foe. Excitedly, he quickly recognized that he had downed an upsurging Warzone star in Zlaner.

Afterward, maritimemucker was eager to check out his role model’s stream. But that ended up in heartbreaking fashion, as it turns out the popular streamer had mocked him right as he and the Doc were mowed down.

@maritimemuckerI don’t mean any disrespect Zlaner but you mocked my voice a lil ya know. Big fan and Kilo main now 💯 ##warzone ##Hotmics ##Zlaner ##drdisrespect ##COD♬ original sound – Maritime Mucker

As mucker shared on TIkTok and Reddit, he was shocked and grinning after killing Zlaner: “I got Zlaner, holy s**t … That is unreal … Huge fan of Z, I’ve been watching his s**t after he finally dropped that stupid Fortnite. Unreal.” 

But when he tuned into Z’s stream, he found out that the Warzone star wasn’t impressed with the 1v1 and had, instead, simply mocked Mucker’s death comms. 

Z’s duo, Dr Disrespect, was able to gun down the low-health maritimemucker, but was also quickly killed by the TikToker’s teammate. That gave Zlaner a chance to hear the death comms (as he dealt enough damage to be rewarded with the kill) and the tilted motivation to go high-pitched in mocking the smaller streamer’s excitement.

If you’re going to run into streamers in Warzone, it’ll probably be at Superstore.

In response, maritimemucker had to recognize that courtliness had been replaced by classic gamer banter: “Alright, I see how it is, Z.” 

So, of course, he proceeded not to insult Zlaner by words, but instead by alluding that the spectacled streamer looks like Bubbles from Trailer Park Boys.

The TikToker roasted Zlaner back by comparing him to Bubbles from Trailer Park Boys.

Ultimately, though, it’s all in good fun and maritimemucker still respects Z tremendously.

When a Reddit commenter suggested that streamers shouldn’t be looked up to, the mocked duelist replied that some Warzone stars deserve the hype: “There are some genuine great streamers out there, Z is one of them.”
