In the newest patch update for Infinite Warfare, version 1.06, Infinity Ward appears to have broken Private Matches for CWL.
Enabling CWL Rules causes the match to be unable to start unless there’s a host that has CODCaster enabled.
Infinity Ward has confirmed that they are aware and working on a fix. In addition, this update also appears to have made Uplink portal smaller and changed Hardpoint rotation on Throwback. It’s unclear if this is intentional. All of this comes right before this weekend’s big MLG Vegas event.
We are awaiting full patch notes and details. Stay tuned.
