Tommey and NAMELESS Explain How They Have Ended Up Teamless Amid Rostermania

One of the biggest surprises so far arising from the recent roster mayhem in Call of Duty, has been the position which former Splyce player Tommey has found himself in.

As one of the star players of the Splyce roster, most fans believed his spot on the team secure, and so were shocked to learn of his release as a restricted free agent.

More shocking still, was Tommey’s follow up tweets and announcements, hinting that he may be forced to step away from competiting for the remained of the 2018 CoD: WWII season.

Of course, no one could have thought it was down to a lack of skill, as he has shown he comfortably belongs amongst the upper echelon of players, not only in Europe but across all regions.

During his recent appearance on the CoD Cast, Tommey went into much more detail than fans are perhaps used to, explaining how it is exactly has ended up in his current situation.

When asked by Anthony “NAMELESS” Wheeler why UNILAD had not offered Tommey a spot, Tommey broke down the chronology of events.

“An offer was put there for myself to join [UNILAD]. But, what happened was, something else then came up and I was asked if I would consider it, which then I said yes I would.

But than then went back to UNILAD as if I had been asking to join this other team. So then I lost my spot on UNILAD, because I said I would consider an offer from another team. So this happened, and then that was it.”

NAMELESS, who similarly had been on a Pro League team with Evil Geniuses, explained how a nearly identical series of events had caused him to essentially retire.

“Same thing happened to me. […] I got offered a spot by Ghost Gaming, and it was a good offer. And I was waiting on if Envy would offer me a spot right, because they were the team that didn’t have an AR player and they needed one.

So I told Ghost, in 24 hours I will hit you guys back, and I am down to join you guys if Envy doesn’t pick me up. 24 hours go by, I hit [Ghost] back up, and they go: ‘Yo, we picked up Parasite man we’re sorry we didn’t want to wait.”

So for both Tommey and NAMELESS, despite their skill and ability to play at the top level, it seems that issues around communication and trust are the ultimate causes for their current predicaments.

While NAMELESS has said he is committing to casting and analysis, with a look to returning for Black Ops 4, Tommey is less sure of his future plans.

He may look to join a CWL National Circuit roster and build up from there, but his chances of Pro League team for Stage Two look finished.

Call of Duty 2021 leaks hint at new Modern Warfare follow up

Before Black Ops Cold War arrives, we may already have our first hint of next year’s Call of Duty setting as a prominent leaker has teased a new Modern Warfare sequel.

While the Call of Duty franchise has 17 mainline entries covering a wide array of timelines, two names stand out as the most iconic. Both the Black Ops series and the Modern Warfare series have seen the most iterations over the years. 

Treyarch has already released four titles in the Black Ops series with Cold War just weeks away. Meanwhile, Infinity Ward has four entries in the Modern Warfare series, the original trilogy along with 2019’s reboot. Now, it seems as though a fifth could also be on the way with Infinity Ward at the helm.

Sledgehammer Games and Raven Software will reportedly be taking a back seat. Instead of the typical three-year development cycle, Infinity Ward has just two-years to work with. We’re still 12 months off from 2021’s mystery release, but we may already have our first details on next year’s title. 

Modern Warfare 2019

Could Price’s story continue in 2021’s Call of Duty?

“It’s looking like CoD for 2021 is another Modern Warfare title of some kind,” prominent leaker Tom Henderson revealed. Not a whole lot is known beyond that key detail, though the setting for the next release appears to be locked in. 

“Understandably not a lot of information as of yet, but it’s a modern-day setting,” he confirmed. Given Modern Warfare’s hard reboot with 2019’s release, could a new sequel be the next step? This would essentially bypass the original Modern Warfare 2 from 2009 if Activision opts for another identical title.

To avoid even more confusion, there’s a good chance the name is a little different, similar to how Black Ops added Cold War to the title for 2020’s drop, despite it being a direct follow up to Black Ops 1. So expect to see Modern Warfare: ‘something something’ as the likely 2021 title.

This could see a direct continuation from where 2019’s game left off. John Price is looking to assemble a team of classic characters to put a stop to Russian terrorist Victor Zakhaev. If Warzone’s ongoing storyline doesn’t beat the single-player campaign to the punch, this could be our objective in 2021’s release.

While this aspect is purely speculation, the leaker also considered the original Modern Warfare 2 being bundled in. No different from how Infinity Warfare launched with Modern Warfare remastered in 2016.

We’re still months away from any official information on the 2021 title, so take this with a grain of salt for now. Black Ops Cold War is the focus for Activision. Anything regarding next year’s game will be kept under wraps for quite some time yet.
