The Call of Duty World League has announced that the CWL All-Star game will be making a return at the upcoming CWL Anaheim event.

This came as part of a larger announcement on Reddit about the changes being made to the CWL, including some scheduling adjustments, broadcast talent update, and more.

CWL Anaheim will take place in Anaheim, CA and will be the sixth major open tournament of the current CWL season.

The tournament, which will be the final one before the 2018 CWL Championship, will feature over 160 teams from across the world battling it out for a share of the $200,000 prize pool.

The CWL All-Star game will be played on Saturday, June 16th and will feature eight of the best and brightest talent that the Call of Duty World League has to offer.

Fans will get to vote in the players that will participate, and it appears that the voting will be done on the CWL Twitter page.

The format for the All-Star game will be a 4v4 Pro-Mod Search and Destroy, meaning that each team will have to use at least one assault rifle, one sub-machine gun, and one sniper rifle.

This exhibition event will go towards promoting the Call of Duty Endowment, which is a nonprofit organization supported by Activision Blizzard that ‘identifies and funds the most efficient and effective organizations that get unemployed veterans back to work.’

Full details about CWL Anaheim, including scheduling and ticket purchasing, can be found on the official event page here.

Warzone players claim Nuketown Gulag gives unfair advantage to one side

A handful of Call of Duty Warzone players have hit out at the new Nuketown-themed Gulag, claiming it favors one side a bit too much. 

With the release of Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War, Warzone has now combined the weapons of both the new game as well as the previous Modern Warfare title.

Even though there’s plenty of new content, including weapons and the Rebirth Island map, but it hasn’t gone down well with every player. There are still complaints about weapons being too overpowered, attachments not working, as well as other general bugs that come from combining the two games. 

Additionally, there’s also a new Gulag – with the showers of the Verdansk prison being done away with, and being replaced by a smaller version of Nuketown. However, players have got complaints about that too.

Players believe that Gulag fights have never been this tricky to win.

With the Modern Warfare showers, players had the same angles on each side, but that’s now changed with Nuketown. It’s now asymmetrical, with more angles to look out for, and Warzone players believe it favors the side where you can shoot through what would be the Welcome to Nuketown sign. 

“40% of my gulag deaths are from my enemy camping behind the car ruins,” posted Redditor SamirDando, complaining about the head glitch the car gives players who spawn that side. “That’s not what the gulag was originally designed to do. This needs a change.”

Others agreed, adding: “Yeah can’t stand it. The damn car head glitch” and offering up possible changes. “Remove the car, change the plywood to concrete so it can’t be shot through and it’d be alright,” said another.

Yet, one player pointed out that it’s not just the head glitch that’s the problem, but how much room you have to work with. 

“In my opinion, the problem with car spawn isn’t just the head glitch, but also the fact that you can see two lanes from spawn,” noted Reddit user ReADropOfGoldenSun, “I think this could all be fixed if they moved the cardboard just a bit over so you can’t see the middle right off spawn.”

Other players, however, didn’t agree at all, claiming that are easy ways to get around the campers – either by simply hopping up on the balconies on the houses or using grenades.

It seems unlikely that the devs would make major changes to the gulag, unless their data shows that it’s completely broken and ruining the game. That might happen at a later date, but we’ll just have to wait and see.
