One of Team Envy’s star player was looking to move on from the org during a Call of Duty teams loading up their roster before CWL Fort Worth.

Once the CWL Pro League wrapped up its fourth week with the defending champion Team Envy sitting near the bottom of Division B, teams started shuffling around during a frantic transfer window ahead of the next CWL event. 

During the March 10 episode of Trading Shots, analyst Jonathan ‘Pacman’ Tucker mentioned that Envy’s star player Cuyler ‘Huke’ Garland at one point voiced his intentions of leaving the squad.

CWLHuke has had incredible performances for Envy since joining in 2017.

Team Envy has had a rough start to the Pro League, currently sitting in sixth place with a record of 3-4, and it seems like frustrations led Huke to ask for a transfer.

“Envy also wanted a change, Huke wanted to be off Envy,” Pacman said. “Huke wanted to go to multiple other teams.”

Pacman and Anthony ‘Nameless’ Wheeler were discussing which teams were most likely to get out of Fort Worth’s “Group of Death.” The conversation led to a revealing dive of the 19-year-old’s relationship with his org.

“Okay, we’re talking about the player that actually wanted to leave their team,” Nameless said. “Huke actually wanted to leave. This has happened multiple times and Envy has dealt with this multiple times.”

Huke has so far been a standout not only for Envy, but in the Pro League as a whole. The young talent has been on the Envy side since 2017 but the org has struggled to crack the Top 3 in CWL events.

The CWL Pro League will be taking a break for the upcoming Fort Worth event on March 15 where Team Envy will play against OpTic Gaming, eUnited, and Team Reciprocity in Pool D.

NICKMERCS rates the best Warzone players from to Scump to HusKerrs

Tasked with drafting a team for a Call of Duty: Warzone tournament, NICKMERCS went through some of the game’s biggest names, ranking them while determining who he would most want to duo with.

To start Davis ‘Hitch’ Edwards’ $10,000 “Cracked Creators” Warzone tournament, 16 creators were tasked with drafting their duo from 16 “cracked” streamers.

As one of the creators allowed to select their tandem, NICKMERCS sifted through 16 of the game’s best to determine who he would prefer to play with.

Ultimately, the FaZe streamer ended up putting his decision to a poll among his fans. But, before doing so, he originally went through all 16 and gave thoughts on how each of them ranks. And the options were varied, but all shared one thing in common: talent.

With professional Call of Duty League players like Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper and Seth ‘Scump’ Abner available, as well as Warzone streamers like Aydan and HusKerrs, the candidates were excellent. Still, NICKMERCS sifted through and broke down who he truly believes ranks as the battle royale’s best.

Segment begins at 00:20:45.

NICKMERCS starts by going through the list and just expressing what an absolute struggle it will be to pick from such a talented crop of peers: “Oh, it’s going to be so hard to pick man … No matter what, everybody that I would pick from is cracked.” But, after going through and complimenting practically everybody, he starts the process of elimination.

Since Nick chooses second after DrDisrespect, he immediately eliminates Zlaner as Doc’s likely first pick. Then, he eliminates JoeWo with two simple reasons: “I’ve never played with him and every time I play against him, I beat that little ass.”

Then, BobbyPoff is gone: “BobbyPoff, I love the guy, but take him off the list.” And the “Scarf Lord” is followed quickly by the Chicago Huntsmen’s FormaL and Scump: “Love ‘em, love ‘em. But I feel like there’s better BR players.” After that, things start getting complicated.

Similar to Zlaner, Nick decides to sacrifice Merk so that he can play with his longtime duo, Maven. Then, recognizing that all of these remaining players are absolute menaces on Verdansk, he goes with two simple metrics to determine his personal preference. He immediately prioritizes controller players and the highest earners in Warzone tournaments.

That eliminates stars like HusKerrs and Symfuhny for their mouse and keyboard usage, while also eliminating Crowder and DougIsRaw for their low earnings. Finally, he eliminates Jukeyz because of his struggles understanding the UK maestro’s accent and decides to put the decision to a poll.

 

Ultimately, it’s between Aydan and Tommey, with Cloakzy popping on to let NICKMERCS know that Aydan’s been playing some Fortnite recently. That leaves the FaZe star choosing Tommey, noting that “he’s got great communication, phenomenal player, guaranteed to get some chopper kills off rip.”

Despite going through full rankings for his options and landing upon an excellent duo, the decision-making process proved to be futile. NICKMERCS and Tommey could only end in the Top 12 for the tournament, while the easily dismissed BobbyPoff actually came in first place.
