After missing his flight an amateur Call of Duty gamer took to Twitter pleading for money to get him to CWL Las Vegas before the start of the tournament. Luckily for him, Thomas ‘Tommey’ Trewren answered the call. 

Amateur player Callan Adamson – who goes by the name of ‘Hayz’ – has jetted off to Vegas courtesy of the Team Reciprocity player, following an exchange on social media. 

Hayz had missed his initial flight to the ‘Entertainment Capital of the World’ because he stayed behind with his friend, who needed to go to hospital. Adamson revealed that he couldn’t have gone to the event without his duo ‘Seannyy’ alongside him. 

He posted on Twitter: “Need 370 quid for a flight tomorrow, it’s unlikely but if anyone can sort me out I’ll pay you back after new year weekly for it”. 

Little did he know, Tommey – who placed second at the CWL Birmingham Open in 2018 with Splyce- would reach out and offer him support. 

Hayz has since tweeted on a number of occasions, thanking Tommey for his kind gesture and has also updated people on his journey to Vegas. 

The tournament will be based in the Hard Rock Hotel and will kick off on December 7, where it will run for two days. There will be three main locations for the event, which are Artist Hall, The Joint and Muse Hall. 

Teams involved in the tournament will go head-to-head on Call of Duty game modes Hardpoint, Search and Destroy, as well as Control – which is a brand new game mode in Black Ops 4. 

Tommey will be competing with the rest of Team Reciprosity and if you would like to follow their progress directly, they are in Pool A for the tournament.

Empire continue championship form, FaZe (and Surge) falter

The Dallas Empire were the best Call of Duty team in 2020 and that form has lasted into 2021. The day started with 2020 MVP Anthony ‘Shotzzy’ Cuevas-Castro racking up 35 kills and just 17 deaths with almost two minutes of hill time on Map 1, but then it became the Indervir ‘iLLeY’ Dhaliwal show as the upsurging player hit star form with some huge clutches.

With Empire cleaning up their former teammate James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks’ New York Subliners, the day moved on with two tight Map 5’s. First, Bryan ‘Apathy’ Zhelyazkov and the Los Angeles Guerrillas outdueled a revamped Seattle Surge 3-2 and then, in a twist few saw coming, the Florida Mutineers came back against the Atlanta FaZe.

As Cesar ‘Skyz’ Bueno returned to the form that earned him MVP candidacy in 2020, the Mutineers flew back from a 2-1 deficit and eventually clinched the 3-2 victory against a FaZe team who stood near the top of most standings for this season.

CDL Kickoff Classic: Teams & players

With this being the first official CDL matches in Black Ops Cold War, a lot of eyes are watching how the new rosters perform. Two of the most intriguing revamped rosters come with the year’s new brands: OpTic Chicago and the Los Angeles Thieves.

With Arcitys going to Atlanta, Dashy going to Chicago and Temp going to LA, the consequences of roster reshuffling will be key for fans to keep track of during the Kickoff Classic.

All 12 teams had to make at least one change due to the switch to a 4v4 format, with some opting to completely revamp their squads.
