Warzone pro 100T Tommey says Custom Games don’t work for competitive

Professional Warzone player, Tommey, takes to Twitter to comment on Warzone tournament formats.

Published

Professional Warzone player “Tommey” took to Twitter to talk about his take on the competitive Warzone format.

Competitive Warzone has traditionally consisted of a “kill race” format, where players randomly queue into a duo, trios, or quads game over and over again in an attempt to have the highest squad kill record in a set time frame. It’s interesting to watch and a great formula for the cameras. It sparks the interests of millions of viewers and makes for some great highlights.

Due to this format, there has always been a demand for a private Warzone match format for these tournaments, where Warzone pros can all face each other in a single game, where the winner takes all.

This would be an interesting experience for viewers, and would allow for tense moments between content creators and professional players. However, for the pros, it might not be as much of an enjoyable experience.

When 100 Thieves player, Tommey, came across a tweet from Cloudfuel regarding this topic, he took to a Twitter thread to respond.

Tommey referred to Warzone as “easy to play”, and “not great for competition,” citing the lack of advanced mechanics when compared to games like Fortnite.

The basis of his argument derives from this, which is a fair point to make. However, games like PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and H1Z1 (when it was still relevant) had private servers for large competitions.

While there is an argument to be made for private matches, Tommey makes a fair point. In terms of competitive integrity, if professional players get in a large server, it might become a slow Warzone game. Frustration will arise quickly among players since most of the winners will be those who are better positioned when the circle begins to close.

While the games may be tense, the engagements will be scarce and players will feel like the game feels more “random” than skillful.

In terms of entertainment value, kill races are the more exciting events to watch. If a content creator is eliminated, they find another game to play and try again. If it happens in a private Warzone tournament format, the streamer can’t play the game and may quickly become bored; thus, viewers will feel less engaged with the event.

While the kill race format will most likely be the competitive Warzone formula in the future for many reasons, it still would be great to occasionally see a custom games format on occasion with top talent. Perhaps there is some ruleset or game type to support the format in a proper way that’s fun for viewers and competitors.

Warzone devs preview Season 3 changes: Roze Skin update, FFAR & Sykov nerf, and more

Big changes previewed for Warzone Season 3 including FFAR & Sykov nerfs.

Roze Skin - COD: Warzone

Raven Software has dropped a preview of some changes coming to Call of Duty: Warzone with the Season 3 update.

The studio responded to a big Twitter thread by YouTuber CourageJD. Courage dropped a list of major changes he wants to see to bring Warzone back to a better place, especially with a lot of the fan complaints.

Raven Software replied to CourageJD’s thread with a preview of some of the changes the studio is making to Call of Duty: Warzone soon, including many coming with Season 3 update on April 22.

Warzone Season 3 Updates

  • An adjustment to Roze
  • A significant balance pass to weapons such as the Tac Rifle Charlie, M16, FFAR 1, and Sykov
  • Fix for MW weapon perks + sniper glint
  • Change to how you acquire the RC-XD

Many of the changes listed above are some of the big complaints players have had over the last few months in Warzone. Roze skin having almost an invisibility look in the dark has been big for players, and Raven has finally acknowledged that.

The latest weapon addition for Warzone, the Sykov Pistol from the Modern Warfare universe, was added on April 15 and instantly became overpowered. Raven now confirms a nerf is coming for it.

The studio also told Courage that they want to “reassure” fans that all feedback is being read around Warzone.

More Surprises To Come

Raven has promised in another tweet that there are more “surprises” in store for Season 3 that will be announced with the update.

Other changes expected for Season 3 is a revamp of Verdansk map, which will see the map be transported and rebuilt for the 1980s Black Ops Cold War era.

Season 3 of Call of Duty: Warzone is set to being on April 22, with an initial event teased for April 21 starting at 12PM PT. Exact launch times for the new content will be announced soon.

Game-breaking Warzone glitch is turning players invincible

A new game-breaking glitch is turning Warzone players invincible, where not even a Finishing Move can take them down.

Warzone invincible player

A “God Mode” glitch has been plaguing Warzone since the April 15 update, which seemingly causing random players to become invincible.

Warzone players have long been taking advantage of exploits to become invisible, as well as hide in rooftops and walls around Verdansk. A new glitch that has cropped up after the April 15 update is now turning players invincible.

Although the over-powered new Sykov Pistol and the Radiation Zones turning players into Zombies has been what’s on Warzone players’ minds, a game-breaking new glitch has been ruining matches in the background.

It appears that this bizarre new bug is turning Warzone players invincible.

Reddit user SCAR020 shared footage of them fighting an invincible player. No matter how many bullets, rockets, or grenades SCAR020’s squad hit them with, they seemingly take no damage.

Rather than the bullets not connecting, the hit markers still appear but the enemy is otherwise unaffected. To top it off, the invincible player even survives an execution.

SCAR020 isn’t alone in encountering this bug, as the CODWarzone subreddit has seen several players reporting the same issue. Reddit user gremah93 also shared a similar clip in which they get infinite hit markers on the opponent, and even perform a Finishing Move, to no effect.

It’s unknown if this bug is caused by a purposeful exploit like the Loadout Drop invincibility or helicopter invisibility, or it’s randomly happening to innocent players.

Some users have suggested the issue is caused by lag, but these invincible players consistently surviving Finishing Moves have led the community to believe otherwise.

Raven Software are yet to acknowledge the issue, but they were quick to disable the helicopters and patch the latest Stim Glitch, so if this bug continues to plague Warzone, it’s likely to be quickly addressed.

Nuclear radiation spreading across Warzone Verdansk as Season 3 approaches

The end of the current Verdansk is approaching as nuclear radiation is spreading across the map.

Published

The end of the current Verdansk in Warzone as we know it near. Nova 6 gas has started to spread across the map.

Following the playlist update on April 15 and April 16, Raven Software has started what appears to be the end of the current Verdansk map.

Three zones, which were the first two to get Zombies, now have a Red Nuclear Symbol over them on the mini map and cannot be fully accessed.

These three locations are Ship Wreck, Prison, and as of April 16, Hospital. We expect the radiation to continue to expand as we get closer to the start of Season 3 of Warzone.

Here’s what the radiation zone looks like on the mini map, as of April 16.

When players attempt to go to these areas, there’s a green radiation all over. As you enter the area, your player instantly takes damage until you die. The only way to prevent the radiation from hurting you is with a Gas mask, but those also run out pretty quickly.

Here’s a video of the location and it in action.

Players who are in Solo modes will die to the radiation and be sent to the Gulag. For players in duos, trios, or quads, upon dying to the radiation, you will actually become a Zombie. JackFrags video here showcases it:

We are expecting this to expand to more locations in Verdansk, probably lined up with where Zombies have headed since the start of Season 2. That would mean Hospital, Finance District, Super Store, and Dam amongst the locations.

The Nuke Event for Call of Duty: Warzone is set to begin April 21 at 12PM Pacific Time.

Stay tuned for the latest news on Call of Duty: Warzone.
