TjHaly addresses rumors of OpTic CoD role changes

Professional Call of Duty player Thomas ‘TJHaly’ Haly has addressed the rumors regarding OpTic Gaming’s potential role swap, following CWL Anaheim.

OpTic Gaming have always been regarded as a championship caliber team in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 since their win at the first event of the season, CWL Las Vegas.

The fan favorite squad found themselves finishing in 3rd place at CWL Anaheim after falling to GenG in the Loser’s Bracket Finals, and three time World Champion, Karma, later sparked rumors of a potential role swap after claiming that the team might have performed better if teammate Scump was to run an assault rifle.

MLGOpTic Gaming claimed victory at the first event of the season, CWL Las Vegas.

One of the young players, added to the roster for the BO4 season, TJHaly, recently addressed the role swap rumors involving Scump after being asked by one of his viewers, saying, “Is Seth playing Maddox now? Nah he’s probably not, I don’t know what we’re doing.”

He followed by explaining that they would be likely to keep their current roles and that he feels working on Hardpoint set-ups is their biggest weakness, adding, “We’re probably going to keep the same shit, we just don’t know how to hold a spawn because everyone wants to run at the hill.”

Scump has been playing the SMG slayer role for almost the entire season (and career), the only exception being the first two weeks of the CWL Pro League, during which he ran the Maddox at times to accommodate FaZe Clan’s Tommy ‘ZooMaa’ Paparatto subbing in for Brandon ‘Dashy’ Otell.

OpTic Gaming still remain to be the only team inside the CWL Pro League not to have made a proper roster change from the start of the year following the recent departure of Sukry from Heretics, as they have been looking inwards to fix the team’s issues.

If they are to make a role swap, however, OpTic will have just under a month to prepare for the CWL Finals in Miami, which is scheduled to take place a few weeks after the Pro League finishes up on July 19.

Black Ops Cold War leak reveals new Christmas-themed Nuketown

The holidays are right around the corner and it appears as though Black Ops Cold War will be getting into the festive spirit as new leaks have revealed a limited-time version of Nuketown ‘84 on the way.

Nuketown has seen a number of complete makeovers throughout the years. What started as a simple, close-quarters map in Black Ops 1, has been revamped in many unique ways. From a futuristic remake to the latest 80’s themed design and plenty more.

The fan-favorite map isn’t stopping there, however. New leaks and even a quirky bug have all pointed towards a festive takeover coming into effect very soon. There might even be multiple versions of the battlefield all in-game at the one time.

Christmas is coming to Black Ops Cold War in a big way. Not only will Nuketown be covered with festive decorations, but there also appears to be a night-time variant coming as well.

From a leaked preview image of the Nuketown ‘84 map, we’re given our first look at the map from an all-new perspective. Rather than the beaming hot sun lighting things up, Nuketown looks a little different here. A dark sky keeps things mellow while Christmas lights aim to get you in the holiday spirit.

A few Christmas reefs are scattered around while tinsel is layered across almost every surface. From the one angle, however, there doesn’t seem to be any kind of snow or other major difference. Purely just decorations on an otherwise standard Nuketown ‘84.

While the leaked image comes from a reliable source that’s revealed a wide array of content in the past, there’s more to it than just that. Oddly enough, a bizarre glitch from November 25 actually let players see the Christmas decorations in-game for a split moment.

The yet unannounced version of the map randomly came into effect mid-game for one lucky player. They were caught off guard by the interior of a house but the decorations remained in place, even after death.

That should clear up any caution as to whether the Christmas-themed variant is real or not. While there’s no date locked in for this holiday takeover, we can obviously expect to see it in a matter of weeks as December draws to an end.

Nuketown seems to be the only map getting a festive makeover for now. Though there could always be some visual changes on the way for Warzone as well. We’ll have to wait and see.
