CWL Pro League roster led by Michael ‘SpaceLy’ Schmale has has officially announced that they will represent a new entrant to the Call of Duty scene for the 2019 season.

The CWL Pro League kicks off in less than a week on February 4 and new organizations are starting to announce the acquisition of new rosters.

Team Space has been teasing their official announcement for some weeks, and although the reveal was somewhat spoiled by Call of Duty’s website jumping the gun, fans are excited to see a new name enter CoD esports.

Gen.G, best known for their League of Legends success and their Overwatch League franchise, Seoul Dynasty, confirmed the signing of Team Space on January 31.

Team Space was listed on the Call of Duty website as Gen.G prior to the announcement, so the official reveal was expected soon after.

SpaceLy also revealed that they were actually in talks with FaZe Clan prior to signing with Gen.G, simply stating that “things didn’t go through.”

He also said the reason it took them so long to sign with an org after CWL Vegas was “security” since he’s seen so many other rosters end up in shambles after signing with new orgs.  

SpaceLy and co. were one of the hottest teams throughout the entire Black Ops 4 season despite having been without an org for most of it. 

They first competed under the Str8 Rippin banner for CWL Vegas where they finished with an impressive 7th-8th overall placing. 

That placing allowed the team to move on to the CWL Pro League Qualifier where they were placed in Pool C. 

While 100 Thieves and Midnight Esports ended up taking the top two seed in that Pool, SpaceLy and co. finished with a respectable 3-3 record before picking up a trio of wins that secured them a spot in the Pro League. 

Gen.G continues their expansion in esports.

Gen.G might be a new entrant in the Call of Duty scene, but they are certainly no stranger to esports, having fielded teams in the League of Legends, Overwatch, PUBG, and even Fortnite. 

They recently came in seventh on Forbes’ list of the most valuable teams in esports, with the organization being valued at $110 million as of October 2018. 

The CWL Pro League kicks off on February 4, with Gen.G slotted into Division A along with Call of Duty powerhouses such as OpTic Gaming and Luminosity.

Warzone FOV setting on PC can reduce visual recoil on weapons

Call of Duty players have uncovered an unusual field-of-view setting in Warzone, claiming that weapons such as the CR-AMAX seem to have less visual recoil when it is toggled.

The weapon meta is continuing to shift in Warzone as more changes are released in Season 6, giving players plenty of unique weapons and playstyle to try in the battle royale.

Popular YouTuber Swagg was one of the latest to reveal a Season 6 loadout for Warzone but claimed there was also a “secret” setting that was helping him to rack up more kills in-game.

CoD players like Swagg have claimed that Warzone’s FOV settings can affect recoil in-game.

While the CR-56 AMAX, which was featured as the Galil in past CoD titles, has been a solid weapon since its release, there are, apparently, some field-of-view settings that Warzone players can change to make the gun easier to use.

In his October 24 upload, Swagg revealed that having the “Affected FOV” setting enabled makes it seem as if the AMAX has little to no recoil. This is opposed to the default Independent FOV setting.

“Affected FOV on PC makes guns feel like they don’t have recoil,” Swagg revealed, in his Warzone gameplay, “[it’s the] reason why I use Amax now.”

The AMAX does not usually stand out above other Assault Rifles in its class, but it still has one of the highest base stats when it comes to damage per second (DPS), meaning that less recoil would make this quite a strong choice in the current meta.

While the weapon, with these affected FOV settings, appears to move less compared to CR-56 AMAX gameplay for console players, it is unclear whether or not it actually has a major effect on the gun.

However, it seemed to be working quite well for Swagg, as he highlighted just how strong it could be, managing to pick up plenty of kills in his Warzone match with fellow content creator booya.

Another CoD YouTuber Webzy has previously highlighted the difference in recoil between the Affected and Independent settings, echoing the sentiment of the FaZe member and claiming it was actually easier to hit shots with it enabled.

Infinity Ward is regularly coming out with fixes for any bugs found in-game but it appears as if this FOV setting was intended to be a feature, making it unclear whether or not this will be patched.
