Call of Duty pro Donovan ‘Temp’ Laroda has lashed out at opponents Enigma6 as “garbage” ahead of this week’s CWL Championships in Los Angeles. E6’s KiSMET has since responded, firing back shots of his own.

Temp is known in the competitive CoD scene for his incredible passion and raw talent. Despite having never won a major tournament, Temp is never afraid to vocalize his feelings, a trait he demonstrated once again on August 11. 

Ahead of major tournaments, many pro teams meet up to scrim over LAN in order to maximize the standard of practice prior to the event. However, rivalries often come through these LAN clashes, particularly at such a key point in the CoD season.

Matthew ‘KiSMET’ Tinsley is a SMG slayer for Enigma6,who burst onto the professional scene during last year’s CoD: WWII, and has quickly established himself as a vocal, passionate competitor. On August 11 though, Temp was labelling him as “garbage” on social media, following matches between the two as they prepare for this week’s tournament. 

In response to Temp’s original tweet, ex-CoD pro turned CWL analyst Anthony ‘NAMELESS’ Wheeler asked why Temp was “coming at” KiSMET. 

Temp replied, stating: “We (Splyce) are winning every map we play versus them in scrims, getting outslayed by 20 because they are just lost.”

“Fool said ‘I 3-0ed you at Anaheim’ – we had a fill in lmao,” Laroda finished. Enigma6 beat Splyce 3-0 during CWL Anaheim’s pool play, as they topped Pool C with a perfect 3-0 record, while Splyce finished Pool C in last place, ending with an 0-3 record.

However, as Temp points out, Splyce were playing with a substitute. Nick ‘Nolson’ Nolson was standing in for the absent Lamar ‘Accuracy’ Abedi. 

KiSMET seemed unaffected by Temp’s insults, responding with his own Twitter jabs. He posted a video showing Splyce rotating during a Hardpoint scrim, in which all five teammates push through the same choke-point. 

“And I’m trash?” KiSMET asks. “You guys suck.” 

It’s fair to say that neither KiSMET nor Temp are backing down, and both seem pretty confident in their own abilities going into Champs. 

Enigma6 are in Pool B alongside Gen.G, Team War and Fuego Gaming. Splyce are in Pool H with Team Heretics, Aspire Esports and Hybrid Gaming. 

A match-up between the two sides at CoD Champs would undoubtedly be a heated affair. However given the way the pools have been drawn, it seems unlikely that we’ll see the two teams meet – unless they manage to find one another in the Losers’ or Winners’ bracket.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is practically a household name for FPS fans and non-gamers alike. It’s no shock then that CoD fans were beyond excited at the possibility of a PS5 version of the game. 

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has become a staple title for the CoD franchise. After a recent clarification from an Infinity Ward dev that more content is coming soon fans have jumped back aboard the Modern Warfare hype train.

This announcement had fans scratching their heads over what new content would be released, especially when Black Ops: Cold War and its Warzone season are likely to be the focus of development for some time.

A reddit user, however, has sparked some life into the community by leaking a possible PS5 release for Modern Warfare in the near future.

Modern Warfare is the game that birthed Call of Duty: Warzone, which has exploded into a fully fledged esport.

Modern Warfare on PS5 Leak

A post and possible leak on r/GamingLeaksAndRumours by reddit user asjonesy99 has seized the interest of CoD fans from across the globe.

The post sees the possibility of there being a PS5 version of the title available in the near future. When purchasing the game, the dropdown menu shows the original PS4 version followed by a PS5 version.

The original post states that when he selects this option it becomes locked. After checking a plethora of other games, there are no other options for PS5 versions, so either this is a simple error or CoD are planning a future PS5 update for the game.

While excited, a lot of fans weren’t particularly shocked at this leak simply due to the popularity of Warzone, which launched alongside Modern Warfare in October 2019 and is fully integrated into the game.

The future is of course uncertain, and in turn this means that this could be nothing. However, it’s really exciting to think that Modern Warfare will be back with a bang to continue to inspire future generations of FPS players in the same way it has inspired the current one.
