The first CWL 2K tournament of the Black Ops 4 season is now complete, with Tainted Minds taking first place in APAC tournament.

Both the European and North American 2K tournaments will take place on November 4, concluding on November 5.

Mindfreak, who made some major roster changes coming in to the Black Ops 4 season, were expected finalists for the first APAC 2K.

Tainted Minds retained their four man roster from last season plus the addition of Jayden ‘Setzyy’ Hewitt from TabooESC and formerly Mindfreak Black.

They also brought on board former pro player James ‘macka’ McKenzie as a coach for the roster, and it appears the additions have worked out so far, beating their rivals Mindfreak in the grand final.

It was still a good showing overall from Mindfreak however, who still have time to gel as a roster, since the addition of Luke ‘Louqa’ Rigas and returning player Cody ‘Excite’ Rugolo.

Better than Karma & FormaL? Aydan reacts to Dr Disrespect praise | CharlieIntel Podcast #11

In Episode 11 of the CharlieIntel Podcast, battle royale superstar Aydan addresses the bold praise he recently received from Dr Disrespect, which caused quite the stir on social media.

Dr Disrespect recently raised a lot of eyebrows in the world of online gaming, particularly in the Call of Duty community, after he made bold comments claiming Aydan “could be the best controller gamer the world has ever seen.”

He called the former Fortnite pro “something else,” while insinuating that he was above and beyond the likes of Karma and FormaL, two CoD legends (and in the case of FormaL, also a Halo standout) who most consider to be the ‘GOATs’ (greatest of all time) in the console/controller scene.

When asked about it on the CharlieIntel Podcast, Aydan admitted to feeling very honored to be given such praise from the Two-Time and humbly named off some other controller players who he felt also deserved such recognition.

“It’s very honorable, of course, especially from Doc, how big he is,” he said on the CharlieIntel Podcast. “I think there are a lot of other talented controller players out there. For example Shotzzy, he won a Championship in Halo and CoD recently. FormaL also played Halo, so I definitely give them a lot of props.

“I’ve played Fortnite and Warzone and I’ve been doing well so I understand where he’s [Doc] coming from and on top of that, the world record game, which probably convinced him a little more. But I’ll take it, I’m happy with that.”
