CoD UK Twitter hilariously trolls Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp for being down

Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp all went down for an extended period of time, and the CoD UK Twitter didn’t pass up a trolling opportunity.

Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp mysteriously went down for several hours, but that didn’t stop Call of Duty UK’s Twitter from hilariously trolling the platforms.

With millions of people using Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp daily, it’s no surprise that their being down caused an uproar online. In fact, the outages were all most people could talk about online.

Three of the most popular social platforms went down with no reason for their outages. However, these outages did not affect Twitter.

Many Twitter users used the remaining platform to poke fun at Facebook headquarters. While it may have been an inconvenience for many, it did produce some hilarious memes, with the Call of Duty UK Twitter account providing one of the best by referencing Warzone.

Amid the outages, CoD UK posted an image of what looked like a Squad on the verge of being eliminated in Warzone. However, the names of the players were changed.

The three downed “players” were Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp. The last remaining player was, of course, Twitter. With Twitter being the last player alive, it is up to them to complete the mission.

And as the day went on, Twitter completed the mission of staying alive. However, the outages at Facebook HQ are more severe than a minor outage.

Why Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp went down?

Social platforms experiencing short outages every now and then aren’t too uncommon. They can happen for several reasons, including high server traffic, scheduled maintenance, etc. Yet, the Facebook outage is derivative of “network issues.”

According to The Verge, the outages broke nearly all of the internal systems Facebook employees use to communicate and work. Facebook engineers have been sent to U.S. data centers to help fix the issues. However, this is Facebook’s most severe outage in years.

Mike Schroepfer, Facebook’s Chief Technology Officer, tweeted that the team was experiencing network issues but was working as fast as possible to restore its services.

For those who don’t use Facebook, this may not have been as big of an event as it was to others. Nonetheless, it has been fun enjoying all of the memes with Call of Duty UK providing one of the funniest, especially for Call of Duty: Warzone fans.

Call of Duty: Vanguard

Warzone players call for devs to not remove Rebirth Island with Vanguard integration

With Call of Duty: Vanguard on the way, players are worried about what will happen to the popular Rebirth Island mode in Warzone.

Warzone players have been begging the developers at Raven Software and Sledgehammer Games to keep the Rebirth Island mode after Vanguard’s integration.

With Warzone now in Season 6, players have had a lot of time with the Rebirth Island mode, as it was released back in the first season of Black Ops Cold War‘s integration with the battle royale.

Players are fond of it, as some are even calling for the devs to keep it in the game even after Vanguard‘s release.

With Vanguard not too far out now, releasing November 5, players are anticipating the game’s integration into Warzone, which could happen just a couple of weeks after launch.

Of course, players are extremely excited about the new Pacific map, but at the same tie, some are worried that the Rebirth Island Alcatraz map and mode will be lost.

Reddit user BaconHamAndCheese12 put up a post recently expressing their worries about Rebirth Island continuing even after Vanguard’s release.

The player is passionate about the mode remaining in the game, as the caption reads: “When we get the new Pacific map and Vanguard is integrated, are we going to lose Rebirth Island?”

The post goes on to question whether the map will remain, or even if the Resurgence mode will get a new “smaller map” introduced along with Vanguard.

The user then states “I really don’t hope we lose Rebirth Island and Resurgence,” showing their love for both the map and mode. As the post asks whether or not there has been any information on this topic, sadly there has not, and it is unclear what will happen to the mode after Vanguard is integrated.

Many users in the comments also feel the same way, with one even saying: “I was genuinely concerned about this too and it’s a topic nobody seems to be talking about.”

We know many Warzone players absolutely love Rebirth Island and Resurgence, so we too hope that the mode and map returns, and if not the same, hopefully, a new variation of it.

Warzone could potentially lose a lot of its player base who love the mode, as some players exclusively play Rebirth Island due to its fun, intense gameplay.

We’ll have to see what happens when the devs comment on the topic, but for now, check out the current Warzone Season 6 meta.

The first event saw NA Trios compete against each other, with Team Aydan securing the victory. The second World Series of Warzone competition had Trios from Europe take the spotlight, with Team Jukeyz taking home the championship on August 4, 2021.

The World Series of Warzone action picked back up on September 15 when the EU Duos event took place, and the Duo of MethodzSick and Dagati was able to take home the victory.

Instead, game six will be its own competition, as all of the 150 competing players will drop into a single match as solo players, with the last player standing getting $100,000.

Prize pool

The Captains and their teams will compete for a share of the $300,000 Prize Pool. The teams’ prize pool will be $200k, with another $100k on the line for the Captain’s Cup.
