Team Kaliber Owner KOSDFF Reveals He’ll Be Suing Rise Nation Over Methodz

Team Kaliber Owner Justin ‘KOSDFF’ Chandler revealed that he will be suing Rise Nation over Anthony ‘Methodz’ Zinni’s contract transfer agreement.

Following the completion of Stage One during the 2018 CWL Pro League, a collection of high profile roster changes have occurred across various teams, which has come to be known as ‘Rostermania’ within the community.

However, one of the most notable moves took place when the OpTic Gaming squad of three years decided to trade Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper to Luminosity for Sam ‘Octane’ Larew and pick up Methodz in place of Damon ‘Karma’ Barlow.

While Octane was brought to the roster via a direct trade, OpTic Gaming needed to bring Methodz to the squad via a contract buy-out after he had previously competed for Team Kaliber at the CWL Seattle Open.

However, it appears that there may be some behind the scenes issues with the contract buyout after KOSDFF, the longtime Owner of Team Kaliber, released a video mentioning how the organization is planning to pursue legal action against Rise Nation for their handling of the situation.

He mentions how even though they had binding agreements to keep Methodz on tK, Rise allegedly disregarded the contract and sold the rights to OpTic for more money.

“We had a signed transfer agreement with Rise and consideration had been sent – it was pretty much a done-deal when I talked to the manager of Rise. Everything was looking good, everything was fine. Now two days later […] I got a string of text messages from the manager of Rise saying that they were voiding our transfer and that they were going to sell Methodz to another team for more money.”

KOSDFF later went on to state that after Rise allegedly disregarded the contract agreement, Team Kaliber will be pursing ‘legal remedies’ for breach of contract, along with recovering their original, five-figure transfer fee.

“They were just going to ignore our transfer agreement and ignore that Methodz had played for us at all, and just act like he had never been transferred from Rise, then went ahead and made that transfer from Rise to OpTic.

[It’s left us with our hands up in the air, like, ‘what the fuck just happened?’ So, obviously, we’re going to be pursuing legal remedies for breach of contract and other things like that, and also to recover our very large, five-figure transfer fee that we’re just out now.”

Warzone dev reveals fix for missing Trick or Treat rewards bug

One of Warzone’s lead developers has responded to the frustrating Trick or Treat rewards bug during the Haunting of Verdansk event, with players not getting the Pumpkin Punisher Grau blueprint after completing all the challenges.

The Haunting of Verdansk is the special Halloween event in Warzone, with lots of new content for players to sink their teeth into.

This includes new Operator packs, including skins from horror films Saw and Texas Chainsaw Massacre, as well as the new Zombie Royale game mode and, of course, the Trick or Treat Rewards.

By searching chests in 16 different locations, players can earn all manner of items from calling cards and emblems to the awesome Cleaver melee blueprint. As a result of unlocking all 16, you’re supposed to get the Grau blueprint weapon, Pumpkin Punisher — but for some people, this isn’t happening.

The Pumpkin Punisher gives a spooky spin on a previous Warzone favorite weapon, the Grau 5.56.

A number of players have reported that even after completing all 16 Trick or Treat challenges and unlocking all the rewards, the Pumpkin Punisher remains locked and isn’t added to their Armory.

One player reported the issue to Joe Cecot, the Co-Design Director of Multiplayer at developer Infinity Ward, and he suggested that the likely issue is the UI thinks players have everything, but they’re actually missing one of the rewards.

To fix this, Cecot offered a workaround, though it might not be particularly fun: he advises players to hit all the locations again and the gun will likely be unlocked, to make sure the game properly registers the completion of every single challenge. He also says that it’s “most likely the location that is still not registered will give candy out of the box.”

Of course, this will be slightly frustrating for players who have not yet unlocked the Pumpkin Punisher, despite having completed all of the relevant tasks.

Cecot did add that in the long run, they’ll “most likely fix people in this state,” though it’s unclear when that could happen, or even if at all.
