CDL Atlanta marked the third CoD event of 2020 and while hometown heroes were crowned after a dominant Grand Finals performance, a number of fresh storylines emerged – but which were the most significant?

One of the biggest narratives heading into 2020 was that twin brothers Preston ‘Prestinni’ Sanderson and Alec ‘Arcitys’ Sanderson would compete under different banners for the first time in their careers.

That showdown finally came to fruition in Atlanta as both struggled to fight back tears after a stunning 3-2 victory for the Florida Mutineers.

Another major storyline from the event was the ‘tied’ result that popped up after the Mutineers narrowly eeked out a one-point Domination victory over OpTic Gaming Los Angeles.

20 minutes of confusion and delays followed as the rulebook was consulted and the winning team was finally awarded the map after much controversy online.

Tune in to the full video for a complete rundown on ten of the most captivating moments from the latest CDL event.

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.
