Fortnites problems

Hello guys
As you may know the activity and interest in fortnite is low, unless its event or new season time but that's sonething as clear as csgo getting interest as soon as a major tournament kicks in, and then being ignored
I am not saying fortnite is completely dying, the goal of this post is to make people see what the problems in this game are/were
And to maybe cause a discussion about stuff like that
Ready? Lets go

1. Casuals vs Pros

Casuals want the game to be fun, pros want it to be competitively viable, as we know pros(ninja and tfue specifically) are known for complaining a lot
Who is to blame? On the one hand its epic who dont know how to balance their game, they have proven that often and even continue up to this day
I still cant get over the headshot damage nerfs or the new shotgun being dogsh*t
On the other hand casuals, all they want is a balanced fun game, what they get in 99% of cases is an item that is a meta by itself and a game that revolves on repititively doing 1 thing, and that's either using one of those metas or build battling for 50 years to die from the storm or fall damage
Infinity blade, combat shotguns, I could name examples of f*cked up ideas by epic FOR HOURS
On the third hand, the pros
They want a stable balance, and a game that isnt fucked up
And then when they get sbmm to be matched against equally skilled opponents they cry around bc of how hard the game has become
Like what? I mean, we could have an competitive mode that matches people by skill, rewarding people while having an casual , unranked mode
What pros also get is again: a hardly balanced, often broken game that barely is competitive
What we have in terms of competitive is one competitive gamemodes and one point farming mode(ARENA, ANOTHER F*CKED UP CONCEPT)
Also: seeing the meta and how fortnite is made, it isnt competitively viable, there are only 2 guns with no rng bloom on them, with the rest being either useful in only 1% of all ingame fights or useless without the meta guns
And metas arent competitive, what differentiates a good competitively viable game from others is no meta used to win 99% of ingame fights
Lets take csgo, csgo is pretty balanced and has no real meta
Sure, there are 1 tap awps or autosnipers, BUT THEY CAN BE COUNTERED BY THINGS OTHER THAN USING THE EXACT SAME WEAPON:
with that being: Molotovs Smokes Flashes Grenades Scoped assault rifles Flanking your opponent Moving quickly or unpredictably Not being an
And they(at least the awp) require a bit of skill to use
While what are the counters to shotguns in fortnite(THE META)?
Rpgs Shotguns
I know, the difference is: Fortnite is an BR game, your inventory is based on rng
In csgo you choose your inventory
It means you are forced to play weapons your are bad with in fortnite if you find only such
And in csgo you can simply not use them
What also differentiates those games are strategies
In fortnite you either (squad) push, camp and shoot from distance or run away
In csgo you can choose to split, five stack a bombsite, fake rushing a bombsite, execute something more by smokes and flashes, take over mid and then push a site and more
And that's just on one side(t side) and I bet i missed some bc i am a csgo low rank
See the difference? Fortnite is about mechanical skill, luck and camping if you play arena
Csgo is about strategy and having a plan, as well as those other more mechanical skills
There are some solutions to most of those "Issues": 1. Make arena an actual working competitive mode with lots of ranks and rewards for playing it and ranking up, that while leaving all the other modes without skill based matchmaking
Those arena rewards could be: skins, umbrellas and gliders, v-bucks on high rank, emotes etc.
Maybe even a separate battle pass that is free but requires ranking up to progress
Also: add deranking after not playing for a while and dont tell us how to rank up easily(RN the arena meta is shotgun camping bc how points are divided between placement and kills)
  1. Do not add items to "make worse players have equal chances as good players" bc that concept simply doesnt work as long as ANYONE , INCL. THE GOOD PLAYERS, CAN FIND THOSE ITEMS(I know, they probably stopped with it, but we dont want it coming back)
  2. DONT BASE THE GAME ON METAS, INSTEAD MAKE EVERY WEAPON GOOD, LESS RANDOM AND COUNTERABLE BY WEAPONS AND ITEMS OTHER THAN USING THE EXACT SAME ONE
That could be: Nerfing shotguns OR Buffing ARs, Smgs(slightly), Silenced Smgs, aka. The most used weapons aside of the shotguns, that to balance the game out more
  1. To reduce rng: make every gun have only one rarity On ar's keep the scars On all others: the blue ones And completely vault the smg
Make every equally rare, ars should drop as often as all others and vice versa
And make chest work like this: Chest drop 2 guns, 1 shield giving item, 1 health giving item or one item that mixes both, 50 of any material and at least 1 full RESERVE magazine of ammo for each of the weapons
Also: give chests a 100% spawn chance everywhere where they can spawn

2. Too high skill gap

What may scare people from ever trying fortnite is the fact that the skill gap is publically known to be high, insanely high
Someone once said you need to play as much as a pro plays on average in other games, to become a casual in fortnite
Fortnite is the sweatiest game in existence
Lets once again take csgo as an example to compare fortnite to, as both are supposed to be competitive games we will be trying to compare just those aspects
As well as the skill gap and other things you could actually compare between those 2
Csgo doesnt have a high skill gap in unranked modes at all, its so low a silver(low rank) can get pretty high placed in them, that may be bc the competitive mode actually attracts people there, there you get a nice rank, you may get rewards and even unlock sh*t for your account
What fortnite competitive(arena) has is a 10 rank, fully exploitable system bc it gets explained to everyone ingame how to earn points Can you get anything for them points? Sometimes access to tournaments/tournament qualifiers which sounds cool at first, but isnt really cool at all as arena itself isnt rewarding at all
Why not make a working sbmm WITHOUT MIXED PLATFORMS
Fun Fact: the game already once was non-crossplatform, before season 3/4 there was no cross platform I think, and then later it got added but wasnt forced
Since the new chapter began, crossplatform is forced WHICH IS BAD
Lets say you have a skill factor based on values from 0.0 to 12
So lets say a console player has an 5.6, that's not bad or too good either
Now lets take a pc player, with the same factor
Now who would win?
In a perfect case scenario/paper it would be a 50/50 chance
In reality though the pc player would be superior one in every way bc aim assist is only op on high fps pcs, and on consoles its not as good, and as we know pc players are having advantages in building as well as mostly easier aiming
Dont come up with an pro you know how is super good in all of that and plays on console, that bc: COMPARING PROS TO US, CASUALS, DOESNT WORK
THEY ARE PROS, SUPPOSED TO MASTER ALL THE SKILLS TO BECOME THE BEST, WHAT WE ARE SUPPOSED TO DO IS TO PLAY THE GAME AND HAVE F*CKING FUN
ANOTHER EXAMPLE: An 11.9 mobile player and an 11.9 pc player, who wins? On paper: 50/50 again
In reality: The pc player wins in 999/1000 times, its insane epic believes it works, bc it doesnt, its broken as fuck
Me with my mediocre skill is forced to play again pc players, who against other pc guys are as good as I am against my consoles, but against me he/she seems like the sweatiest player in existence
There are 2 ways to fix sbmm
  1. As mentioned above, MAKE IT WORK AND BE ONLY IN ARENA, the rest is above cause I dont like repeating myself too much
  2. SPLIT THE F*CKING PLATFORMS IN SBMM, SAME IN CASUAL MATCHMAKING
WHY IS CROSSPLATFORM EVEN FORCED?

3. Epics weird decisionmaking

Adding an op mech in season x for no good reason, not paying out many pros their tournament rewards(the denverguy made a good video about it, at least its good in my opinion, good enough to take out some info) and even lying about it, AND THAT SINCE AT LEAST 6 MONTHS
And requiring big twittereddit popularity of problems for them to get fixed
No, I didnt describe me with a bunch of 3 yr olds leading a company but I just described epics weird decision making
Epic is known for being weird, their fortnite success was pure luck after all(WHICH GREW AFTER THEY PAID PEOPLE TO PLAY AND ADVERTISE IT), what do you expect from someone like this? For real, what do you expect?
They are also known for decisions such as: OP INGAME ITEMS, many of us probably know a lot of those from the past, why were they even there?
Starting tournaments and ignoring 50% of all the players that should have been rewarded, then pretending that either they didnt participate or that the tournament didnt even exist
Not updating for half a year to change the engine of the game, and then not really saying if its ingame
Is it in the game? I cant tell cause my pc is too bad to launch fortnite and consoles have the same performance issues, they had SINCE DAY 1 OF SEASON 1 IN CHAPTER 1, #EPICFIX
(I also cant tell bc I am too lazy to google it)
How epic could fix this one? Well, here I dont have a solution except maybe not letting people with the brains of 3 yr olds lead a company
Bye, that's it for this post cause I dont want to write more
Edit: sorry for any grammar mistakes or stuff like that, I wirte this on a mobile with english not being my first language
Also: I play since season 2, I know this game, dont tell me "get gud noob" bc I complain for sh*t that you think is balanced or okay

Yes and his word is trumped by high command and the sergeants to approved her promotion. Brian is not as influential are you think.

She was already approved for promotion a week ago

Are you able to produce anything confirming these claims? If not, then we have no reason to believe you.
fwykahw in RPClipsGTA on 05 Jul 20 (1pts):
Because high command and the FTO's agreed she is worthy of being an officer? The reddit court of opinion does not decide that. She was the first in her academy to get a sign off, first to solo,...

A basic guide on how to bet on CSGO

I know with the recent closure of many sports leagues, a lot of you guys are trying to find something else to bet on. Unlike most sports, eSports is not usually postponed or cancelled due to illness because most of the leagues are online. As a bettor that has been placing wagers on CSGO (Counter Strike Global Offensive) for the past couple of years, I want to provide you guys with not a complete guide, but the basics to get you guys started.
  1. Research There are many sources of research you can conduct for CSGO. The best resource for CSGO betting analysis is hltv.org. This site provides statistics for matchups, h2hs, and also shows you rankings for teams. A second form of research you can use is by searching the team name up on esea.net or faceit.com to see how they currently stand in the league they're playing in. A pivotal thing to note is that map vetos are critical to the match and analyzing what teams are good on which of the 7 maps is important to research
  2. Watching CSGO is relatively easy to watch. You can find the streams clicking on the match link on hltv.org. If the stream is not there/the match is not there, usually you can find the stream via twitch.tv so no more need for buffstreamz
  3. Understanding The good thing about CSGO is that it is extremely easy to understand. The basic gist of it is:
a. The first team to 16 rounds win and there are two sides: Counter-Terrorist and Terrorist.
b. You play half the rounds as terrorist and half as counter-terrorist.
c. To win a round on Terrorist side, you either have to kill all the counter-terrorists or plant the bomb and have it explode
d. To win a round on Counter-Terrorist side, you have to either kill all the terrorists or defuse the planted bomb
e. If the game is tied 15-15, the game will go to overtime and the first team to win 4/6 rounds will win the map. If not, game will continue at 18-18 and the same rules apply til a team wins 4/6 rounds
f. There are 3 types of formats: Bo1, Bo3, and Bo5 and this is much like tennis formatting (Bo3).
I hope this guide helped you guys a bit during this betting drought and hopefully will get you guys more into eSports as a whole. If you guys ever need any advice, feel free to hit me up on Twitter or on Reddit as I post pretty often on POTD thread.

Roster Issue with ESL World Ranking

BLUF: ESL World Rankings seemingly include inactive players in a team's ranking and could fuck up event seedings and invites. Edit #1: Appears that seedings for Katowice would indeed have been affected. See edit below.
According to ESL's ranking rules:
The Power Ranking position of a team at any time is determined by the sum of the decayed points of their best five active players.
This would seem to include players who are on the active roster for a team. If a player is inactive or is removed from the roster it would make sense for their points to not count towards the ranking. Such is the case for teams where the player is released from the team.
Example:
However, if a player is not on the active roster but is still under contract as is the case with Guardian with Navi and JUGI with North, ESL does include their points in the ranking despite them not being a part of the active roster.
This wouldn't be much of an issue if not for the fact that ESL Pro Tour events are going to be using ESL World Rank to seed group stages of their tournaments. Most notable with IEM Katowice 2020.
So what is the effect?
Did this have an effect on Katowice seeding? EDIT: See the edit at the bottom of the post. This appears to potentially affect the Katowice seedings. It's difficult to tell because there is no way to look up a team's rank as of a certain date and there are no caches of the rank page from 5 Feb 2020, the last rank update before Katowice 1st round matchups were released. The aforementioned rules don't specify the rank decay percentage for every week, but you could perhaps calculate the rank decay by looking at past tournaments on the ESL World Ranking page.
Of course, perhaps this is by design but it seems like a major flaw and ripe for abuse by allowing teams to hold onto players in order to boost ranking and earn invites to events.
Also as a bonus, because players retain points even if they are the only person on a roster to have any points, technically DickStacy could have made a random pug team and used his 34.4 points to give them a ESL World Rank of #32 and likely a direct invite to the Oceanic Rio Closed Qualifier.
Edit#1: It would indeed appear that Navi's rank would have been dramatically different for the seeding as it shouldn't have used Guardian's points and wouldn't include their points from GG.Bet ICE Challenge yet. I created a spreadsheet showing how the points of Navi, Vitality, and G2 are today and as of 10 Feb when the Katowice group stage matchups were announced and when I assume seedings were taken from the ESL World Ranking. At that time, ranks should have changed in the following way:
Team Old Rank as of 10 Feb Updated Rank as of 10 Feb
Navi 6 8
Vitality 7 6
G2 8 7
This would mean the 1st round matchups should change in the following way.
Old Matchup Updated Matchup
Navi v Faze Navi v 100T
Vitality v NiP Vitality v Faze
G2 v 100T G2 v NiP
I've done as much proofing of my calculations as possible so if anyone can find a flaw please point it out. I'd love if theflyingdj or mbCARMAC could comment on this and provide more guidance as to whether or not it is intended for the ranks to include inactive roster players as it currently is.

An actual guide to Apex legends positioning and Game optimization (In depth PC guide part II)

An actual guide to Apex legends positioning and Game optimization (In depth PC guide part II)

The complete guide on maximising your Apex legends experience.

Welcome (again) to another apex legends guide, due to the success of my first post "How to actually get better at aiming" I decided to create a follow-up guide for all of you out there looking to get better at the game, and willing to take the necessary steps to actually improve. I'm sure you're wondering why I made a second guide since the first one seemed to cover every aspect necessary to excel at the game, and I'm also sure a lot of you are thinking about skipping this guide as it may be unnecessary, well, that's not the case. My first guide did indeed cover multiple aspects which are crucial to comprehend in order to improve, but it wasn't as analytical as it could've been, it was aimed mainly towards beginners and I wasn't sure if it would get positive feedback to begin with, so I kept it simple. This guide is for those of you wanting to take that extra step in order to differentiate yourselves from your opponents and finally climb up in the ranked ladder. In this guide I will be covering in detail: 1) finding the right mouse 2) optimal program settings for increased visibility + fps 3) Advanced aim training 4) In-depth positioning explanation + guide. As you probably already noticed, certain topics of discussion overlap those of my initial guide, but in this guide each of the topics will be analysed to their cores so that you can follow the steps which will be provided and see guaranteed improvement within two weeks of consistent gameplay. I am 100% certain that your in-game performance and Kovaak's scores will increase significantly if you follow my guide, with visible combat performance in Apex legends and a minimum of 5-10% increase for Kovaak's scores if you are closer to beginner level. For those of you questioning what qualifies me to be putting out information in the context about skill-improvement, I have played CSGO competitively with approximately 7k hours in the game, I was ranked in the top 30 McCree players in S6 of overwatch, I am predator in Apex, and I have top 100 scores in multiple 'Kovaak's FPS aim trainer' scenarios and general top 5% scores. If you haven't read through my first guide, you can do that here. Having said all that, let's get started.

Section 1) Finding the right mouse.

When it comes to FPS games, having a mouse which can accurately translate your arm movements into mouse movements in your game is of extreme importance, and as I mentioned in my previous guide, is constantly undervalued by the casual gaming community. There is a common gaming myth that I am certain everyone regardless of the genre of games they play has heard which is that if your mouse works without blatant issues then it does it's job. Such misconceptions are usually passed on by casual gamers that don't support spending $60+ for a quality gaming mouse, but unfortunately such statements are false, which is why you will never see any streamer or competitive player using a 10$ laptop mouse. It would be pretty useless and unfair for me to tell you to go out and spend $60+ on a mouse without providing a logical explanation as to why you should, so let's go over the reasons you need a quality mouse, as well as what makes a good gaming mouse good, and how to find the mouse that suits you best. First things first, why do you need a good gaming mouse? It's pretty simple, when playing PC games, but FPS games in particular, you want your mouse movements to be fast and accurate, and in order to achieve that you need to have a quality mouse, if you try a 180 degree flick on an outdated laptop mouse you will quickly realise the mouse loses track through the movement and is therefore inaccurate and even if it didn't lose track, the built in acceleration would make the movement of the mouse inaccurate relative to the movement of your arm. If you tried something similar as the previous example with tracking a target you will quickly realise the movement isn't perfectly smooth, along with the fact that such mice have delay, which means your reaction time will be slower as a result. Gaming mice offer precision sensors which will track your movement accurately with no delay or acceleration, this is very important as it will maximise your in-game precision by properly mirroring your arm movements as opposed to a generic mouse, not only that, but training with a mouse that is inconsistent in movement will hinder your ability to train your aim as it will mess with your muscle (procedural) memory. Gaming mice also tend to offer much more comfortable ergonomic shapes which will give you a better grip, fit your hand better, and also allow you to go on extended gaming sessions without your hand feeling cramped / tired. It is important that you choose a mouse that has a flawless optical sensor (laser sensors are inaccurate), most modern gaming mice offer flawless sensors, but be sure to check before you buy your gaming mouse; Any 33XX sensor will work flawlessly, with the best sensors in the category being the 3360 and the 3366 along with the Logitech HERO sensor which is a low-power version of the 3360. Now, while precise sensors may be important what is even more important is finding a mouse that fits your hand well, this will depend on two things, one being your hand size, and the other being your grip style. I have created a guide (guide within a guide, nice) to help you measure your hand correctly, as well as understand grip styles.

Hand measurement guide:

In order to measure your hands for the purpose of finding a mouse you will want to measure two things, one is the length of your hand, like so:

https://preview.redd.it/2dbuoebzwlv31.jpg?width=316&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=d1b5b4653a5cc9a9ea8b284c99db765ee432767b
The other is the width of your hand, like so:

not my hands btw
Once you have figure out the dimensions of your hand, the format in which mice are presented is L x W. I personally have large hands at 21.5x11 cm, I've been using the Zowie EC2-B Divina for the past year and I am very pleased with it as the shape and texture is ideal for me, being an improved DA shape with a 3360 sensor. The most important aspect of the dimensions in terms of determining which mouse is ideal is the length of your hand.
After you have determined your hand size, you need to find out what grip style you use. There are three types of mouse grips, first we have the palm grip, then the claw grip, and finally the fingertip grip. Here is an image showing each grip.

https://preview.redd.it/jytnxkf10mv31.jpg?width=1280&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=a57cb40687603a844aadd2cda9f436413a558ad5
Once you have the 'L x W' of your hand and have figured out what grip style you use, go to this link and you will be presented with a range of options for mice depending on your hand size and grip style. The recommendations have been put together by RocketJumpNinja himself, for those of you unfamiliar with who he is, he is a Quake player and marginally the best competitive mouse reviewer out there and I would trust him blindly for anything mouse related. Once you have found 1-2 mice you are interested in you can check his mouse reviews on YT for more detailed information on each mouse. Having tested a multitude of mice myself, I would say my favourites have been the Deathadder Elite, Zowie EC2-A and EC2-B series due to their ergonomic designs, and the G305 and GPW due to their flawless wireless capabilities.
Other Important Peripherals: As i mentioned in my last guide, while your mouse is by far the most important piece of gaming equipment in your setup, it is also highly recommended that you have 1) A 144hz+ monitor (makes a huge difference and you can get one as cheap as $200) 2) an extra large mousepad 3) A decent mechanical keyboard (membrane keyboards are trash).

Section 2) optimal program settings for increased visibility + fps

This section will be shorter as everything mentioned here will be a technical step by step guide to insure that you are getting the best performance possible in Apex legends. For myself and many others, Apex legends runs smoothly but suffers from certain technical hiccups, such as: lag spikes, stuttering, fps drops, and input lag. I am playing on a 2080ti and yet I used to have these issues affect my gameplay constantly, to a point where I had stopped playing apex for months and only returned towards the end of S2. If you are experiencing any of the aforementioned issues, this step by step process will ensure that you get rid of them and have your game run smoothly. Note that if you have cheap PC components and you are getting low FPS due to that, this guide will not get you to that consistent 144fps goal, but will still improve your current FPS to some extent. There are multiple steps you need to take in order to squeeze every bit of performance out of your game, we'll start with application / file settings, and move on to optimal launch options and in-game settings.
For the first optimisation you will want to go through is set the game to run on exclusive fullscreen permanently. To do this you will want to launch the Registry Editor. Once in the Registry Editor you want to navigate to: Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\system\GameConfigStore\Children. You will see a bunch of series of numbers / letters here, what you will want to do is hit Ctrl + F which will open up 'Search' and search for "r5apex.exe", you'll find a folder called r5apex.exe or something similar, and you will delete that folder. What this step will do is enable your game to run at exclusive fullscreen mode, which the newer windows versions don't allow you to do for some idiotic reason, and this is far simpler and more convenient than a windows rollback.

https://preview.redd.it/qbmzsm4bbmv31.png?width=1425&format=png&auto=webp&s=50e1dbc0da484036a708b1425b5d71911276d126
The next step you want to proceed with is creating an autoexec configuration file for Apex Legends. What an autoexec file does for those of you unfamiliar with the topic (csgo players will know this) is that it will enable you to set certain commands which will automatically be ran in the console every time you run the application corresponding to the file. First, you want to locate the install location for Apex on your PC. For me this is This PC > Windows (C:) > Program Files (x86) > Origin Games > Apex. Click on the file called "cfg" and inside you will find a cfg file called "config_default_pc" make a 2nd copy of this file, open it, delete everything inside it, rename the file to "autoexec" and save it. Within this file you want to type in the following commands:
hud_setting_minimapRotate 1
This will enable your minimap to rotate in game depending on the position you're facing relative to the map
r_shadows 0
This will disable shadows for increased FPS
r_fullscreen 1
This isn't fully necessary taking into consideration the previous step. Ensures fullscreen mode.
mat_screen_blur_enabled 0
This will remove the blur effect from when you open up your inventory etc.
mat_compressedtextures 1
Compresses textures / FPS increase
cl_ragdoll_collide 0
Alters collisions possible in ragdoll physics / FPS increase
m_rawinput 1
This enables raw input for your mouse, uncertain about if it was enabled on default so I included it
optional commands:
mat_letterbox_aspect_goal 1.33
mat_letterbox_aspect_threshold 1.33
These two commands in your autoexec will enable you to play on 4:3 resolutions without having black bars

https://preview.redd.it/n10sy6vidmv31.png?width=1807&format=png&auto=webp&s=d6b16fb40813cc8079364cd314f490a74f3976f3

Next we will be setting the necessary launch options to enable our autoexec to run when we launch Apex, and to add some more optimisations to our game.
In order to get to your launch options launch origin, go to "My Game Library", click on Apex, click on the gear icon below and to the left of 'Play', choose "Game Properties", and finally "Advanced Launch Options". In the text area which says "Command line arguments" add the following:
+exec autoexec
This will run your autoexec file when you launch the game
+cl_showfps 4
This will provide an FPS counter in-game
-fullscreen
Self explanatory and once again unecessary but better safe than sorry
-forcenovsync
Disables V-Sync (vsync is horrible and causes mass input lag)
-fps_max 190
I cap my fps because I feel like anything above 200 FPS in this game leads to screen tearing, could be wrong but once again, better safe than sorry.

https://preview.redd.it/io7ixpd7fmv31.png?width=895&format=png&auto=webp&s=f63156ad487a56c1a280f5b7db59796abfd40337

Finally we have our in-game settings. This part is very simple, you basically want everything on low. Other than your texture streaming budget which should be on "High (4GB VRAM)" if you have a decent GPU, if you're on more of a budget GPU then you can lower this setting as well.

https://preview.redd.it/xyynko1wfmv31.png?width=1238&format=png&auto=webp&s=10d7c6783f4098a86c56a7b75d913b0aa9ae663d

Section 3) Advanced Aim Training.

If you read my previous guide, you remember how greatly I emphasised training your aim consistently through "Kovaak's FPS aim trainer" for at least 30 - 60 minutes a day in order to see improvement in that aspect. This is a follow up to that for the people that have taken aim training seriously and want something a bit more advanced to allow their muscle memory to develop for a wider range of arm movements and scenarios. If you consider yourself to be a beginner / intermediate aimer you are better off following the warmup / training routine that I have posted in my first guide, if not, this is a routine which for those of you dedicated to improving your aim.
  • 10 minutes - Tile Frenzy 180 - good warmup
  • 10 minutes - 1wall6targets TE - good point & click training
  • 10 minutes - 1wall 6targets small - same as above but more precise due to significantly smaller targets
  • 10 minutes - 1wall5targets_pasu - (tracking mode) - good tracking training for moving targets
  • 4 runs - Air - one of the most difficult large movement tracking scenarios
  • 5 minutes - Thin Aiming Long Invincible - smooth tracking / arm movement training
  • 5 minutes - Popcorn - tough training for learning how to properly "click heads"
  • 10 minutes - McCoy 1v1 - good single fire training vs. strafing targets / good wingman training
In addition to having more difficult scenarios as part of your training routine, there is an extra step necessary in order to push yourself to improve your aiming mechanics, that is, instead of playing 'Free Play' on these aim training scenarios, play the "challenge" modes. Initially you want to aim for scores above the 'median', as you continue training aim to break your own record as many times within a week as you can. Don't be demotivated if the general 'median' scores are high in Kovaak's, as the average aimer doesn't play challenge mode in Kovaak's to begin with, so the scores you're seeing are above average to begin with. All you should aim for initially as I said is "above average", and within 2 weeks you will see improvement to your scores. If you reach the top 100 ranking in any challenge scenario you know you're doing something very right.

https://preview.redd.it/gptgsd1ojmv31.png?width=266&format=png&auto=webp&s=1f5c7a2f78416a718c5cc7cc5fde1c1eccaa0495
Alternatives to Kovaak's FPS aim trainer:
If you cannot afford Kovaak's for whatever reason (It's worth the $10 just buy it), you can use 3DAimTrainer or AimLabs instead, or even simply play FFA DM in community csgo servers with your apex ADS sens (HSDM even better for aim training) and monitor your score there, as CSGO sens scaling is the same as apex. Keep note that these alternatives are sub-optimal and I wouldn't recommend them for aim training as I don't have any training routines to offer for those, although if they are your only option it's better than nothing.
Note: Don't spend over an hour or two (max) a day on aim training itself as you need a combination of aim training and in-game experience in order to properly improve. If you only play aim trainers you will develop bad habits as you are simply training vs targets in very specific scenarios and not actual players that can think for themselves.

Section 4) Positioning yourself to win in ranked.

I have said on multiple occasions that Apex is 90% about aim, and while this may be true in my case as someone with over 10k hours in FPS games, it may not be the same for everyone. Aim is definitely the dominant factor in distinguishing a good player from a bad player in apex, but there is one certain very important thing which is just as transferable as aim from one FPS game to another, and that is positioning. Positioning is everything in BR games, and people fail to understand this. As many great players will tell you, positioning and general gamesense are many times more important than aim in determining the outcome of a fight. The way you move, the angles you hold, and your position on the map relative to the enemy can sometimes turn the best players into bots if they choose to engage with you. The problem with "learning" to position yourself is that you effectively can't, all you can do is take note of the mistakes you make in this context while playing, and try to consciously avoid those bad habits during your games. Let's break down the three points I mentioned initially.

Active movement / Keyboard input

First off we have individual movement, which means the active movement as an outcome of your keyboard input, one of the first things you need to learn in this context is strafing. Strafing is the action of moving from left to right while engaging in combat / shooting at your opponent, this may sound as simple as spamming your A and D keys while shooting, and technically it is, but there are many other factors to consider. Luckily the accuracy factor while moving in Apex is still 100% during ADS, so you don't need to worry about that while strafing in comparison to e.g. games like csgo, but you will still need to learn how to keep accurate while strafing, and how to strafe in relation to your opponents movement so that you can be as hard as possible to hit. The solution to my first presented dilemma would be to either start up Kovaak's and run some scenarios while strafing instead of standing still to get used to the crosshair / aim adjustment while moving so you can learn to compensate for the repositioning, while the solution to the second dilemma is more complex. Imagine a scenario where you and your opponent are standing 5m away from each other on open ground in train yard ADS'ing each other with a wingman (wingman has 100% ADS move speed) you are both on level ground and strafing from left to right, if you don't actively adjust your strafing to counteract his, you may find yourself in a situation where you're simply mirroring his strafes. In that situation you're effectively making yourself a static target relative to your opponent and you are incredibly easy to hit, you need to practice strafing as an active behavior before it can become subconscious, otherwise you will just be nonsensically spamming your "A" / "D" keys and not effectively hindering the shooter's accuracy onto you. Since apex legends has other movement mechanics such as climbing, sliding, and abilities you should also learn to utilise those aspects of the game in order to make yourself as hard to hit as possible, it doesn't matter what the action is, just never stand still, the harder you make yourself to hit, the higher the chances are that you win the fight, the reason this is harder to do than it sounds as mentioned before, is that you need to learn to move around while in combat while also maintaining the same accuracy, having great movement but effectively sacrificing 50% of your accuracy won't do much to win you a fight. Shortly climbing walls / wall jumping can also be good ways of making yourself harder to hit while in fights, if you don't know how to wall jump it's pretty simple, all you need to do is run for 1.5 seconds minimum, slide towards a wall, jump at the end of your slide while releasing your forward move key (W) and then jump again when you hit the wall and look toward the direction you want to "bounce" in.

Situational awareness

Another aspect of positioning which is crucial in order to get you to win more fights is playing the right angles. You need to be able to assume the outcome of a scenario before engaging in a fight, if the enemy team has highground in trainyard, and has fenced off the windows / entrances as wattson, and you choose to engage the team, you are forced to fight them from lowground while simultaneously allowing them to maintain their position. You will lose this fight 100% of the time because: 1) The enemy can force you to trade fire in the angle they choose since they don't need to reposition and you can only hit them if they peek you. 2) The enemy can stop and heal safely whenever they want 3) It is much more difficult to accurately hit targets partially peeking from an elevated position in relation to you. In this scenario you should know not to engage the team as is, as that will lead to a wipe. Let's discuss potential DPS here, Potential DPS is the amount of DPS possible on a target in the current instance if every single shot hits the target. The potential DPS you have on a Pathfinder behind a wall is 0, The potential DPS you have on a pathfinder full body peeking you for 10 seconds straight = The amount of damage the weapon you're holding can output in 10 seconds, and the potential DPS on a pathfinder jigglepeeking behind a wall depends on the effectiveness of his movement. In the Wattson / Trainyard scenario the enemy has a much higher potential DPS on you if you choose to engage in a fight, therefore it is wiser to avoid it until they reposition, or force them to reposition. When holding angles you want to force your enemies to reposition to your liking so you can maximize your potential DPS, if you are peeking a 90 degree angle from behind a tree, and you know an enemy is going to push you within the next second, you are already pre-aiming the enemy and therefore maximizing your potential DPS, while he has to turn the corner, locate your exact position, move his crosshair onto you, and start firing. In such situations you should always win the DPS trade unless your weapon doesn't allow you to due to the damage cap, e.g. a p2020 vs. a wingman.

Map rotations

Finally the last aspect of positioning that you need to take into account in order to win your games (this is especially important in ranked) is learning when and how to rotate. This is not a topic that I can go too in detail about since you need to experience team rotations on your own, and me covering this entire aspect of movement would effectively mean that I create a graph of every single potential rotation on the map relative to drop zones. Rotations in apex are the group movement of a team from point 'a' to point 'b', in contrast with individual / active movement this is a different issue you have to tackle which relates much more to experience and gamesense than your mechanical input. When you play ranked games keep an eye out for common drops and where people choose to move to once they have dropped, e.g. Teams that drop refinery and survive tend to move to epicenter after the initial looting phase, or teams that skyhook tend to move to drill site and then train yard, etc. etc. In terms of rotations you need to be roughly aware of where the teams currently are on the map, obviously you won't be able to know 100% of the time the exact location of other players, but it is useful to be able to tell "Oh we're in trainyard right now and we just finished looting, I know there's a team over at Depot, and a couple in capitol city, and the ring is closing out Capitol therefore the teams there will be moving towards us". This awareness skill is something which will save you from wiping many times, especially in higher ranks, knowing not to take a route when zone is closing because a team will be gatekeeping the zone is crucial.

Stop running away!

The final aspect I wanted to briefly mention is the whole ranked playstyle which seems to be engrained in the brains of mid-lower rank players in gold and platinum, which is that they play in a way which involves camping buildings and running from fights the entirety of the game in order to get placement RP. This is not something that will help you improve in the game, nor something that will get you RP the fastest, and will ultimately lead to you being hardstuck in a rank you can't mechanically compete in even if this works for you, nobody likes having that one teammate that can't fend for themselves in a gunfight, or that teammate that drops alone and camps the edge of the zone for the entire game. Instead of running away, utilise the aspects of positioning and movement that I mentioned above, learn to reposition yourself in fights rather than to run away from them. If you don't feel confident in going all out on an enemy squad you can simply position yourself to have an advantageous angle and simply poke away at the enemy for any damage you can put in, this is highly effective in the new meta to begin with due to the larger open map. All you do by running from squads is effectively reduce your potential DPS to 0, and your kill potential to 0. Your best bet if you are not an agressive player is to beat your enemy in the positioning game, and then try to break their shields as often as possible, this will end up in three ways. 1) You manage to break the shields often enough that they can't afford to stay in the same position and reposition / run, effectively eliminating the threat of that squad. 2) You force the enemy to push, in which case you have the advantageous angle to begin with and should win the fight due to marginally higher potential DPS. 3) You knock an enemy and open up an opportunity for a 3v2 push, in which case you should win 90% of those fights, especially in cases like this where you have full control of your position in relation to the enemies.
I hope this guide was of any help to you, I will be replying to comments actively. Feel free to PM me about any Kovaak's inquiries. As a side note, make sure to keep on top of your sleeping schedule, training 10 hours a day means nothing if you are sleeping 2 hours a day, as your brain can't actively process the information it has stored during the day if your sleeping patterns are inconsistent and incomplete, and a lot of that procedural memory goes to waste. Have fun, and good luck in your games.

Good luck legends!

Mockingbird X.0

Imagine if there was one desk that all stories could cross so that, at 4am, a media plan could be decided upon and disseminated where all news outlets coordinated to set the goalposts of debate and hyper focused on specific issues to drive a narrative to control how you vote and how you spend money; where Internet shills were given marching orders in tandem to what was shown on television, printed in newspapers and spread throughout articles on the World Wide Web.
https://i.imgur.com/Elnci0M.png
In the past, we had Operation Mockingbird, where the program was supremely confident that it could control stories around the world, even in instructions to cover up any story about a possible “Yeti” sighting, should it turn out they were real.
https://i.imgur.com/121LXqy.png
If, in 1959, the government was confident in its ability to control a story about a Yeti, then what is their level of confidence in controlling stories, today?
https://i.imgur.com/jQFVYew.png
https://i.imgur.com/ZKMYGJj.png
In fact, we have a recent example of a situation similar to the Yeti. When Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch met on the TARMAC to spike the Hillary email investigation, the FBI was so confident it wasn’t them, that their entire focus was finding the leaker, starting with searching within the local PD. We have documentation that demonstrates the state of mind of the confidence the upper levels of the FBI have when dealing with the media.
https://i.imgur.com/IbjDOkI.png
https://i.imgur.com/NH86ozU.png
The marriage between mainstream media and government is a literal one and this arrangement is perfectly legal.
https://i.imgur.com/OAd4vpf.png
But, this problem extends far beyond politics; the private sector, the scientific community, even advice forums are shilled heavily. People are paid to cause anxiety, recommend people break up and otherwise sow depression and nervousness. This is due to a correlating force that employs “systems psychodynamics”, focusing on “tension centered” strategies to create “organizational paradoxes” by targeting people’s basic assumptions about the world around them to create division and provide distraction.

In this day and age, it is even easier to manage these concepts and push a controlled narrative from a central figure than it has ever been. Allen & Co is a “boutique investment firm” that managed the merger between Disney and Fox and operates as an overseeing force for nearly all media and Internet shill armies, while having it’s fingers in sports, social media, video games, health insurance, etc.

Former director of the CIA and Paul Brennan’s former superior George Tenet, holds the reigns of Allen & Co. The cast of characters involves a lot of the usual suspects.
https://i.imgur.com/3OlrX7G.png
In 1973, Allen & Company bought a stake in Columbia Pictures. When the business was sold in 1982 to Coca-Cola, it netted a significant profit. Since then, Herbert Allen, Jr. has had a place on Coca-Cola's board of directors.
Since its founding in 1982, the Allen & Company Sun Valley Conference has regularly drawn high-profile attendees such as Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, Rupert Murdoch, Barry Diller, Michael Eisner, Oprah Winfrey, Robert Johnson, Andy Grove, Richard Parsons, and Donald Keough.
Allen & Co. was one of ten underwriters for the Google initial public offering in 2004. In 2007, Allen was sole advisor to Activision in its $18 billion merger with Vivendi Games. In 2011, the New York Mets hired Allen & Co. to sell a minority stake of the team. That deal later fell apart. In November 2013, Allen & Co. was one of seven underwriters on the initial public offering of Twitter. Allen & Co. was the adviser of Facebook in its $19 billion acquisition of WhatsApp in February 2014.
In 2015, Allen & Co. was the advisor to Time Warner in its $80 billion 2015 merger with Charter Communications, AOL in its acquisition by Verizon, Centene Corporation in its $6.8 billion acquisition of Health Net, and eBay in its separation from PayPal.
In 2016, Allen & Co was the lead advisor to Time Warner in its $108 billion acquisition by AT&T, LinkedIn for its merger talks with Microsoft, Walmart in its $3.3 billion purchase of Jet.com, and Verizon in its $4.8 billion acquisition of Yahoo!. In 2017, Allen & Co. was the advisor to Chewy.com in PetSmart’s $3.35 billion purchase of the online retailer.
Allen & Co throws the Sun Valley Conference every year where you get a glimpse of who sows up. Harvey Weinstein, though a past visitor, was not invited last year.

George Tenet, with the reigns of Allen & Co in his hands, is able to single-handedly steer the entire Mockingbird apparatus from cable television to video games to Internet shills from a singular location determining the spectrum of allowable debate. Not only are they able to target people’s conscious psychology, they can target people’s endocrine systems with food and pornography; where people are unaware, on a conscious level, of how their moods and behavior are being manipulated.
https://i.imgur.com/mA3MzTB.png
"The problem with George Tenet is that he doesn't seem to care to get his facts straight. He is not meticulous. He is willing to make up stories that suit his purposes and to suppress information that does not."
"Sadly but fittingly, 'At the Center of the Storm' is likely to remind us that sometimes what lies at the center of a storm is a deafening silence."
https://i.imgur.com/YHMJnnP.png
Tenet joined President-elect Bill Clinton's national security transition team in November 1992. Clinton appointed Tenet Senior Director for Intelligence Programs at the National Security Council, where he served from 1993 to 1995. Tenet was appointed Deputy Director of Central Intelligence in July 1995. Tenet held the position as the DCI from July 1997 to July 2004. Citing "personal reasons," Tenet submitted his resignation to President Bush on June 3, 2004. Tenet said his resignation "was a personal decision and had only one basis—in fact, the well-being of my wonderful family—nothing more and nothing less. In February 2008, he became a managing director at investment bank Allen & Company.

We have the documentation that demonstrates what these people could possibly be doing with all of these tools of manipulation at their fingertips.
The term for it is “covert political action” for which all media put before your eyes is used to serve as a veneer… a reality TV show facade of a darker modus operandum.

It is now clear that we are facing an implacable enemy whose avowed objective is world domination by whatever means and at whatever costs. There are no rules in such a game. Hitherto acceptable norms of human conduct do not apply. If the US is to survive, longstanding American concepts of "fair play" must be reconsidered. We must develop effective espionage and counterespionage services and must learn to subvert, sabotage and destroy our enemies by more clever, more sophisticated means than those used against us. It may become necessary that the American people be made acquainted with, understand and support this fundamentally repugnant philosophy.

Intelligence historian Jeffrey T. Richelson says the S.A. has covered a variety of missions. The group, which recently was reorganized, has had about 200 officers, divided among several groups: the Special Operations Group; the Foreign Training Group, which trains foreign police and intelligence officers; the Propaganda and Political Action Group, which handles disinformation; the Computer Operations Group, which handles information warfare; and the Proprietary Management Staff, which manages whatever companies the CIA sets up as covers for the S.A.
Scientology as a CIA Political Action Group – “It is a continuing arrangement…”: https://mikemcclaughry.wordpress.com/2015/08/25/scientology-as-a-cia-political-action-group-it-is-a-continuing-arrangement/
…Those operations we inaugurated in the years 1955-7 are still secret, but, for present purposes, I can say all that’s worth saying about them in a few sentences – after, that is, I offer these few words of wisdom. The ‘perfect’ political action operation is, by definition, uneventful. Nothing ‘happens’ in it. It is a continuing arrangement, neither a process nor a series of actions proceeding at a starting point and ending with a conclusion.

When you consider the number of forces that can be contained within a single “political action group” in the form on a “boutique investment firm,” where all sides of political arguments are predetermined by a selected group of actors who have been planted, compromised or leveraged in some way in order to control the way they spin their message.
https://i.imgur.com/tU4MD4S.png
The evidence of this coordinated effort is overwhelming and the “consensus” that you see on TV, in sports, in Hollywood, in the news and on the Internet is fabricated.
Under the guise of a fake account a posting is made which looks legitimate and is towards the truth is made - but the critical point is that it has a VERY WEAK PREMISE without substantive proof to back the posting. Once this is done then under alternative fake accounts a very strong position in your favour is slowly introduced over the life of the posting. It is IMPERATIVE that both sides are initially presented, so the uninformed reader cannot determine which side is the truth. As postings and replies are made the stronger 'evidence' or disinformation in your favour is slowly 'seeded in.'
Thus the uninformed reader will most likely develop the same position as you, and if their position is against you their opposition to your posting will be most likely dropped. However in some cases where the forum members are highly educated and can counter your disinformation with real facts and linked postings, you can then 'abort' the consensus cracking by initiating a 'forum slide.'
When you find yourself feeling like common sense and common courtesy aren’t as common as they ought to be, it is because there is a massive psychological operation controlled from the top down to ensure that as many people as possible are caught in a “tension based” mental loop that is inflicted on them by people acting with purpose to achieve goals that are not in the interest of the general population, but a method of operating in secret and corrupt manner without consequences.
Notice that Jeffrey Katzenberg, of Disney, who is intertwined with Allen & Co funds the Young Turks. He is the perfect example of the relationship between media and politics.
Katzenberg has also been involved in politics. With his active support of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, he was called "one of Hollywood's premier political kingmakers and one of the Democratic Party's top national fundraisers."
With cash from Jeffrey Katzenberg, The Young Turks looks to grow paid subscribers:
https://digiday.com/media/with-cash-from-katzenberg-the-young-turks-look-to-grow-paid-subscribers/
Last week, former DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg’s new mobile entertainment company WndrCo was part of a $20 million funding round in TYT Network, which oversees 30 news and commentary shows covering politics, pop culture, sports and more. This includes the flagship “The Young Turks” program that streams live on YouTube every day. Other investors in the round included venture capital firms Greycroft Partners, E.ventures and 3L Capital, which led the round. This brings total funding for Young Turks to $24 million.
How Hollywood's Political Donors Are Changing Strategies for the Trump Era:
https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/features/hollywood-political-donors-are-changing-strategy-post-trump-1150545
Hollywood activism long has been depicted as a club controlled by a handful of powerful white men: Katzenberg, Spielberg, Lear, David Geffen, Haim Saban and Bob Iger are the names most often mentioned. But a new generation of power brokers is ascendant, including J.J. Abrams and his wife, Katie McGrath, cited for their personal donations and bundling skills; Shonda Rhimes, who held a get-out-the-vote rally at USC's Galen Center on Sept. 28 that drew 10,000 people; CAA's Darnell Strom, who has hosted events for Nevada congresswoman Jacky Rosen and Arizona congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema; and former Spotify executive Troy Carter, who held three fundraisers for Maryland gubernatorial candidate Ben Jealous (Carter also was a fundraiser for President Obama).
Soros Group Buys Viacom's DreamWorks Film Library:
https://www.forbes.com/2006/03/17/soros-viacom-dreamworks-cx_gl_0317autofacescan11.html#541a895f1f22
Viacom, after splitting off from Les Moonves Les Moonves ' CBS , still holds Paramount Pictures, and that movie studio in December agreed to acquire DreamWorks SKG, the creative shop founded by the Hollywood triumvirate of Steven Spielberg, David Geffen and Jeffrey Katzenberg (a former exec at The Walt Disney Co.). DreamWorks Animation had been spun off into a separate company.
Now it's time for Freston to make back some money--and who better to do a little business with than George Soros? The billionaire financier leads a consortium of Soros Strategic Partners LP and Dune Entertainment II LLC, which together are buying the DreamWorks library--a collection of 59 flicks, including Saving Private Ryan, Gladiator, and American Beauty.
The money you spend on media and junk food and in taxes goes to these groups who then decide how best to market at you so that they decide how you vote by creating a fake consensus to trick into thinking that you want something other than what is best for you; but will inevitably result in more money being funneled to the top, creating further separation between the super rich and the average person. The goal will be to assert creeping authoritarianism by generating outrage against policies and issues they hate. Part of manipulating your basic assumptions is also to use schadenfreude (think canned laughter on TV) against characters who support the cause that might actually do you the most good (which reaffirms and strengthens your confirmation biased along predetermined political lines).
https://i.imgur.com/PW1cRtj.png
We have a population being taught to hate socialism and love capitalism when the truth is no country is practicing either. These terms are merely disguises for political oligarchies where the collection of wealth is less about getting themselves rich and more about keeping everyone else poor.
What can you guess about the world around you if it turned out that every consensus that was forced on you was fake?
How much money would it take to make it look like 51% of the Internet believed in completely idiotic ideas? Combine shill operations with automation and AI’s, and the cost becomes a good investment relative to the return when measured in political power.
Even the people who are well intentioned and very vocal do not have to consciously be aware that they are working for a political action group. A covert political group will always prefer an unwitting tool to help push their agenda, so that they can remain in the shadows.

After Mary Pinchot Meyer threatened to report her knowledge of Operation GUILLOTENE and the details of her work in Operation SIREN from her affair with the former President.

5) Special Activities Division was given the green light after briefing president Johnson on the situation.

New thread for intel

The mods told me to make a new thread since the old one got too lit so here goes.
I think Formal goes to either LG Faze or NV. I think Karma might go to EU or Faze. Theres no chance they are a to2 since Formal doesnt want to play with Karma but that could change if they think they can get the old OG league spot by staying as a to2. If they dont get that then they wont be on the same team.
Kenny and Tommy are thinking about offers to leave. I think they would take a move to OG to the mystery org especially if the $$$ is good. Attach isnt saying anything so no idea whats up with him. TK loses their league spot if Kenny leaves. I dont think KOS has the money to match the new org either if thats where he wants to go.
Gunless is being sketchy and I guess hes still talking to Matt. I dont think he would go to OG or the new org without a few bands and he isnt the kind of guy to like the spotlight. All he does is grind cod more than anyone can guess. I dont think money is a big thing to him either unlike Matt.
All 4 of the OG guys told everyone their done with OG so even if crim and scump go to the new org then I still dont see Matt and Damon staying on OG. I know Crim wants out and i think would only have a chance of staying on OG if Scump said he wants to stay on OG. If Scump stays on OG its because OG matched the offer from the new org. I think thats the only way OG would keep a league spot without buying out a full roster from another league team. It would cost just as much money to do that as matching the new orgs offer. I could be wrong on that 20K a month since I heard that from someone who said one of the OG guys told him.
I watched the codcast and all I gotta say is it should be obvious whats going on and that it lines up with my other thread. Crim messed up when he said that damon will improve the team hes going to then caught himself and said "if he leaves or stays." I told you guys they didnt scrim because they were making a chance and crim sort of said the same shit.
The higher ups that told damon to not go on codcast could have meant Holly. I dont know since i dont have his phones bugged. Maybe it was Hecz and just because Damon is mad at Seth doesnt mean he will throw everyone under the bus. Its not like him and Holly are going to be mad at everyone.
Danny is hilarious and roasted Crim for letting Haggy get top 6. I think Teep is mad at the roster for making him look bad too.
I confirm Emmy is Johns girl but i dont know if shes 100% filled in on everything. Its also weird to me if Scump and Crim are to3 with Octane instead of John.
Everything changes every few hours so if I say something it is whats going on right now but might not be a few hours from now. I decided ill only post updates when i believe everything is set in stone now since people get mad and try to talk shit if something different happens. If something is just a little bit wrong then people get mad just like when I said karma was up for 3 days when holly said it was 2 instead. My bad he told me in the lobby he was up for 3 days. If 1% of something is wrong it doesnt mean the other 99% is wrong.
I found out exactly what the tshirt is about. I wont say it publically but if any pro DMs me here ill confirm it. I also dont have beef with anyone and its just banter in my old thread.
I will try to answer questions by updating the OP so stuff isnt buried like in the old thread.
I AM NOT CODBURNER2018MANIA on twitter or twitch or anywhere. Dont listen to those accounts they are fake. I dont have any other accounts I will post on except here with this one.
..............................................
Thursday night questions answered
Okay so what you're saying is there is 0% chance no roster change occurs for OG or?
Zero chance they stay together now and that should be obvious from codcast or Karma's stream today. Matt also tweeted something.
Karma just mentioned talking to Hecz in his stream. Which would explain why Hecz daughter and Damon's daughter were pictured on HEcz's wife's Twitter yesterday. So there is clearly still a stable relationship with the two, but it makes you start to think that the other guys are leaving OG. This is going to be a long process.
Theres alot of respect outside of between the 4 players. Hecz has no problem with any of them.
If damon and matt go to different teams, who they replacing? So which do you believe it’s the most likely roster now?
All of you are getting your panties twisted when I make a guess so I wont do that anymore sorry
Wait so if karma told you personally he was up for three days then he for sure knows who you are?
Lots of people were downstairs in the zebra bar, the lobby, the restaurant, and outside that he talked to and saw him with the shirt
So what is the team Scump and Crim will most likely form? Someone said it’d be Scump Crim Gunless Octane, any truth to that?
I think they try to get a sub and have Crim flex
How do you get all of this new info if you said that the four guys aren’t saying anything to anyone anymore?
What I mean is they arent typing much in the group chats.
what happens to teep if og ends up with no roster?
He works for infinite which will probably make him still work with GGEA teams. i think he gets a fat check anyway.
Is this investor the same person who runs the Reciprocity Halo team?
idk who that is
And if you were confident in your intel people like him wouldn’t bother you.
The intel is what i heard and is the last i heard while posting it. People went to bed thinking Faze was trading Attach for Gunless and then woke up and it was Clay instead.
Either way this Cod burner dude is stiring up some shit and I think he should remove this post because it's starting to impact these guys life's.
Moves were going to be made no matter if these posts existed or not. You covering your ears and eyes wont stop OG from making a change.
Damon just confirmed the shirt wasn't his on stream. Haggy said everything is wrong lol
Holly also said nothing was happening with optic but we know thats not true. Tell Damon to come here and post that and I'll put the full story out there for him if he forgot.
It's about Formal. What's his deal man? After BO3 Champs, I genuinely got the impression that he straight up hated the others. Nameless has already said that during at least some of IW they hated each other, and Crim mentioned it in an old video that going into the game they weren't even sure if they'd stick together. If the IW season didn't start going their way, am I right in assuming that this change would've happened much sooner?
Matt is just quiet and has a different personality. He doesnt like going out and prefers to chill with melissa instead. If Karma lost that 1v1 in round 11 last year they prob would have made changes. They arent winning this year so they want to make changes now. If reep didnt pull off that 1v3 they might of stuck together.
This is annoying because we all know how indecisive the pros are. They change what they want to do basically everyday. Roster lock needs to hurry up
Yea and thats why i say my intel is correct as of when I last heard something.
Everyone saying oh Kenny won’t leave to cause he’s got a tk tattoo an attach won’t leave cause he’s friends with the owners of faze are completely delusional have someone offer you a fucking bag and turn it down cause your too close with a org fuck outta here
They were talking about leaving while at the casino in the uk
Hey burner could you explain the way gunless grinds? I rarely see him in pros 8s when they are streamed. Do they scrim a lot? Or does he play a lot of pubs or ranked? I've heard he grinds the most but pro 8s only happen so much
He never stops playing. he thinks its fun to have like 1000 accounts at max prestige. (No he doesnt have a 1000 and i exaggerated that but he does have a few.)
Hey man, Ever consider grabbing up "codburner.com", (its available) and doing this as a means to direct all of this to a dedicated location to capitalize off of advertising revenue generated through traffic?
idc about that...if i did i would of made a twitter
Hey burner, so if Kenny did end up leaving, tK wouldn't have the league spot, but who would get it? How does that get decided? Would the squad of Accuracy Methodz and Fero still be able to be in the pro league?
They shouldnt have a spot but MLG could always give it to them like they did with ricky/col
................................................ Friday morning questions answered. Im only reading and answering questions that are replies directly to the OP. If your question is a reply to someone elses reply then it wont be read.
As for Codburner, I highly doubt anyone on OG gets paid 20K/mth to play CoD. That's top pay for a LoL player. I heard the standard salary for a CoD player is somewhere around 50K/yr plus tournament prizes if any.
Nobody on OG gets paid 20K a month. Scump might have said thats the cost for him to leave OG which would make sense if hes already making 10-15k there.
Any talks about Damon retiring?
not that I know of
Dude what happened with complexity??? Something about a fight with Ricky and Blaztful. I also heard censor held blazt by the neck. Apparently it was pretty serious. Any intel???
Rick was acting really weird and talking shit to his teammates right before a match. He's getting a big head because he holds the old era league spot.
Aint not one paying 20k to cod players a month lmao I think thats the most absurd thing in this whole post. That would literally be throwing money down the drain. Even Stewie2k couldnt get that from Cloud9 on CSGO I highly doubt they would do 20k to 4 players where there would be no return on investment
Scump himself has 10x the amount of twitter followers and way more influence over than stewie2k. Think about how much merch Scump alone in a new jersey would sell. He has wayyyyyyyyyyy more value to a brand than any other american player.
Why is no one talking about the fact that throughout this year, casters and MLG have been going crazy about "storylines". That they want comp cod to be "more like the WWE"-courage. What if this is all a ruse, and when the smoke clears, at the next event "look at OG, even through adversity, they stuck it out what an amazing story"
After all the latest tweets and codcasts from players you still think this is a hoax? lol
So Optic is staying together right?
100% absolutely. They resigned for 10 years. Kappa
..................................................................
friday night questions
So will OG have a roster after all this goes down or are they dipping out of cod?
I dont know what the org will do if 3 of their players leave. They might buy another league team but that would be alot.
Any update on John? What we've pieced together so far is that he's declined the offer from Scump and Crim. Has anything changed? Because Octane John Scump and Crim would be the most OP lineup ever.
He might be thinking it over again. idk.
Or if one of them stays and MLG grants the org a spot. for example Ricky moved as a solo and still retained a spot. It would be in the best interest for MLG to grant OG a spot as they would be lossing a rather large fan base for COD. Obviously fans will follow the players but there are still a ton if OG fans that wint watch if Optic isnt in the league
Idk about that. If OG bought the Tainted Minds roster so they are in the league how many people would watch and support them as OG?
I heard something that the buyout was met but the org refused cause they could in their contract and that the buyout was essentially like a reference number or something like that? I think that was just some random comment though so probably wrong
That isnt a buyout then. A buyout is a set number in the contract that allows the player to leave without the org having any say. Maybe they were trying to negotiate a lower amount.
What if Formal and Karma leave as a TO2 and go to a different team and Scump and Crim do the same thing?
Noone is sure about that and bevils wondered the same thing a few weeks ago.
As of right now, what are the most likely rosters that are forming? Is Kenny going to join Crimsix Scump Octane?
It would be a guess but if I had to guess I would say Kenny with them unless John changes his mind
Will you ever reveal your identity?
yea
Any news on FaZe? Would reep retire if he got dropped or Zooma/Attach left?
It would depend on offers he would get from other teams
You initially said that Trei was moving from Red but he has come out and denied that he is moving or ever was. So i presume it is just Skrapz and Josh to swap teams with no changes for Splyce?
Some teams asked about bance and thats why i posted about him but i think they perfer to move tommy.
Do you think all the rosters will be announced on, before, or after the 7th?
robably all of the above lol
Do you see the team of Kenny, Zooma, Scump, and Crim on Optic as a possible opportunity? Or would that not be doable as it seems Scump and Crim want out of Optic?
I dont see that roster happpening or know how that would work lol. Scump and Crim want to leave OG last i heard but maybe OG is trying to negotiate
Yawn
Get off the internet and go to sleep :D
Do you think the new org will be a different Optic team? Like the way they have Optic Gaming and then Optic nation? Or will it be a whole new org in general? I dont think the org would be a different team like optic nation and would be a completely different one. Im not sure if its a brand new one or already existing one.
How many events wins is it gonna take Gunless to get some attention from pokimane? Man is OBSESSED.
Just 1 more because that means 3 wins for ww2 so Halflife 3 confirmed
................................................. satuday and sunday night questions.
There's no chance on to3 scump, formal and crim looking for 1 more?
None
did u saw nadeshots pic that he posted on twitter with the new Vice President of Finance and Operations of 100T ? (Jason Ton) could this be the asian guy OG was talking too ?
I dont know if the guy was asian. I saw him in the car and he looked middle eastern.
When will you reveal your identity? Would it be after the last possible roster changes?
I will for Clay's birthday
So Scump Octane & Crim are a to3?
Yea
are karmas top prospect teams still eU and FaZe or have they changed?
He said no on stream so I assume not. Alot of people are trying to put up smoke tho.
Accuracy tweet is hinting at something happening to the tk roster 👀
TK wont let Kenny go since they would lose the league spot and they dont want to bring back Theory
Can you leak one potential roster for us? I wont care if it turns out to not happen later, just wanna see how things are looking so far
So ive seen all tgese pros tweeting someone got fannessed whats that all about and is faze still together?
Is ZooMaa leaving FaZe ????
Octane Crim Scump Zoomaa is what they all want now
Why do you pros insist on gentlements agreements??
Some stuff is OP and shouldnt be in the game at a pro level. That stuff is in the regular game for pubs and MLG is too slow to fix it for the league and events.
Do you have any idea why Crim and Scump couldn't get Gunless? Was there even an attempt in the first place?
Gunless doesnt want to team with them without Formal.
Wait so Scump/Crimsix + Octane could actually happen? Scump and Octane are my favourite players so that would be an absolute dream. I'll support wherever they end up.
Its looking likely. The bigger thing is who will they get for second sub since lots of teams wont let their players go.
do any of the pros know who you are, and are they trying to figure it out? I would think there would be a mad witch hunt for you in the 8s chats.
Yea so im being more careful now. Their also trying to call me fake because their scared about personal stuff i know. If Im wrong then they wouldnt be talking about me so much.
I expect to see announcements tomorrow and one big thing thats not the OG team
................................... Tuesday stuff
What can be big that doesn’t involve og?
Broke an hour ago about methodz
Any news on zoomaa is he going or are faze not letting him go?
supposedly they wont let him go since there arent any subs out there except royalty
Just curious where that relationship went so wrong they don’t want to team or if they are still friends, just need to part ways to refresh their careers?
They just annoyed each other after awhile and never worked out differences. Its too far now to fix.
Is OG still in COD ppl are saying the New Org bailed out on Scump and Crim?
I dont think they signed anything new with anyone yet including OG
Do you think Tommey will go to another team or are there any teams looking to pick him up? Or do you think he is going to full time stream now?
probably to unilad if skrapz gets bought out fully
What is happening in regards to FaZe if Zoomaa leaves for OpTic, and are you not scared of losing trust with players if you reveal yourself?
I dont think Faze will release Zoomaa since their roster would be weird. The methodz stuff is true that OG owns him now.
Do you think people have any idea who you actually are?
yes some know
What if og give formal the chance to build a team and pay for whoever he wants, any chance that happens if the other 3 leave? I know theyre all done with og but wouldnt that be too big a chance for someone with a winning mentality to pass up?
hes already traded to LG for octane
Codburner has been right about barely half of the time.
at the very least half more than you are. :D
So is OG sticking with OG now or still switching
Its unclear until an OG guy says something to someone
have you guys heard anything about crim and scump teaming with slasher and gunless from rise?
I dont think thats happening unless Rise drops players and signs those two. Rise has no reason to sell Slasher and Gunless.
more stuff: methodz was bought by OG yesterday as an extra bargaining chip since TK never paid rise for him LG wont let john go so OG went after zoomaa and asked to trade methodz for him Kenny is stuck on TK even though OG will pay his buyout because he had to tell TK 14 days in advance and he didnt if OG doesnt get zoomaa then maybe we will see Karma still play on OG
............................. tuesday night questions
Will Optic try get John or Kenny again or are them 2 and Zoomaa a definate no?
No on kenny because tk would lose their league spot. He has a buyout but it required 14 day notice that would have been after roster lock. LG wont let john go because then they are stuck with OGs problem of not having a second sub. Same with faze and zoomaa. teams arent in a hurry to help OG.
don't you think Slacked will get dropped too bc Formal and John dont like him I thought? Or have u not heard anything about that..
if they drop slacked who would they get to replace him? Royalty? it would be the same problem OG has with not having a second sub
Did optic ever consider trying to go for Arcitiys ?
not that I know of and I dont think eu would release him because they have backing and clay would be pissed.
lol how didnt tk pay for methodz contrac/buyout before seattle
TK and a bunch of orgs dont really have lots of money. Rise is owned by an nfl player but he probably only has 10 mil in the bank. They wont even give their players raises. my thinking is they were hurried to sell methodz or else pay his salary when they got slasher. TK was the only one who wanted him and was banking on them placing well so they could pay his buyout. tk doesnt have alot of $$$ though and was only paying their players 3-4K. they all wanted to leave after atl.
What happens if if they stuck with karma. But don't want to team up with him will scum bag be a F/A and Crim too?
they dont want to play with karma so i think they wold be stuck with zinni
What happened to that mystery Org you were talking about so much in the beginning??
Everyone that knows all of that got quiet. I think they wanted scump crim and formal.
If you had to put money on what Optic's roster would be what do you think?
right now id put money on scump crim octane methodz
From what u know, if u had to bet, who do u think realisticly will be the 4th? Think they end up getting Tommy or go with a felo or royalty caliber player
Most likely methodz. Their not getting Tommy and i dont know if they would take royalty or felo. Royalty would be easy to get but felo would probably have a buyout and eu/clay would be pissed
Is the LG roster assuming Formal, Kap, John and Slacked also going to change? like is that the 4 players for sure?
Formal is already part of LG before the weekend. Im not saying LG 100 % wont make more moves but that is most likely their roster unless OG wants to give them scump for slacked or something stupid.
So Sam will 1000% be teaming with Seth and Ian?
they are a to3 under OG but that doesnt mean OG wont sell Sam if Scump and Crim leave for the new org. It all depends what those two do since they have the league spot bc Formal is on LG already.
Is karma really sitting out for the rest of year? Personally think it would be a great move if he replaces Methodz in tk. Do you think there are a possibility of that happening?
Noone said anything about him retiring thats for sure not a troll. TK only paid maybe 3-4k a month so he is probably better off staying with OG even if he doesnt play.
..................................................... wednesday morning stuff
Can’t zoomaa just bench himself like gunless did back in eu? Then faze would be forced to make change.
Sure if he doesnt want to get paid while he does that. I wouldnt be surprised if they could also fine him for that. Roster lock is in 6 days and i dont think he'd hold out after that anyway.
Who did they scrim?
EU and Faze
the owner of rise has a 32 million dollar deal with the LA Rams and 20 mill guaranteed. he already made 5 mill+ from a rookie contract
and more than half of his contract is gone. Here is something on ESPN for nba players and its pretty close to the same for NFL players. He doesnt have dan gilbert money. He probably only has less than 5 million in his bank account right now unless he spent none of it. http://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/20715128/nba-player-salaries-take-home-pay
Without saying too much. I can confirm Karma/Crim we’re getting paid $4000 a month in salary from Optic in 2017.
I dont know if thats funny or sad
So Kenny is stuck on tK and accuracy and f3ro are staying so who do they get as their fourth? They need a decent flex/main AR, and if Karma is unwilling to go because of the pay then who do they get? Dashy? Haggy?
dashy has a huge buyout and is why NV didnt get him. TK doesnt have $$$ to pay the 30K coL asked for him last time.coL is owned by the dallas cowboys and i dont think they would sell dashy cheap. haggy maybe is available but i dont think they want to play with him.
So now that information has leaked that Optic is negotiating for players to play alongside Crim and Scump, what happened to this mystery org that was willing to throw all this money around for an elite squad? Are they not in the running for a team anymore?
Of course OG is negotiating to try to trade for players to make Scump and Crim happy but that doesnt mean its working. I havent heard too much about the mystery org this week and idk if their still interested. I think they wanted Formal too but thats impossible now. Maybe OG is matching close to what they offered to Scump and Crim.
Is there any bad blood on faze or tk since people wanted to go but couldn’t?
maybe but they will get over it
What is the possibility that TeePee is OG's new 4th?
I think hes happy coaching and wouldnt want to play
Is there any possibility TK lets kenny go for a trade of Methodz and like royalty? Since MLG could technically let them keep their league spot if they wanted to.
Yes mlg could do anything they want but methodz is owned by og now and they have no reason to let go of kenny. Hes their best player too.
So who’s replacing methodz?
If you mean on TK then no idea. They dont have lots of money so who could they realistically afford? only maybe someone not in the league like enable.
How exactly do you know that zooma is not leaving faze?
Hes telling people he cant get out. Faze is telling people they wont trade him. OG is telling people they cant get him.
john being forced to stay on LG. Sucks to be that way. How can a player be motivated to play and perform well when he's playing with people he doesn't wanna play with anymore?
John is a fighter and has self respect. Players know if they play like shit the rest of ww2 that their stock goes down for bo4. Lots of people could learn from him. Dont sign a contract if you wont follow it.
By the looks of it optic doesn’t want methodz at all because vision was delayed until Sunday meaning that the rosters still aren’t set. I’m guessing they are still working on a zoomaa trade.
They can keep trying for someone but it doesnt mean it will happen. Idk what they will end up doing.
So if you plan to eventually reveal who you are, why wouldn't you do it now? You've already said that some pros know who you are, and a lot of others have a strong idea... so why wait? I'm just looking at it as a way to get rid of the people that just come in here to shit on your credibility and say you know nothing. If you truly are a pro, and prove that, then no one is going to question it for the most part. But as of now you have people that probably have never even been to an event pretending their best friends with the entire pro community. Either way, I appreciate the intel, no it hasnt been 100% accurate, but like you said, things constantly change.
If i did it now then id be cut off obv. Idc about being first or convincing people anyway. People are blind in denial if they think everything is still fine and the same with OG or other teams.
The new OG will probably be scump, crim, methodz and octane but do you see a slight chance of someone else than Methodz? Slacked just tweeted "I one day hope I can team with replays the goat" Do you see this as a possibility, Slacked to Faze, then get Zooma to OG and give Methodz to LG? because this seems like the only way to get Zooma on OG.
Sure if they decide to go after a guy like Royalty or some random sub. Slacked and Zoomaa are trolling right on twitter.
So your saying there’s no way they can get John, Kenny, attach or zooma? If that’s the case then drop or sell Methodz and try to reconcile with karma. Cause no way that team will work with Methodz. Could they possibly get attach Or they are not selling anyone?
LG, tk, and faze wont let their players go because they would have the problem OG has now that theres no good subs available. Faze is rich so money wont solve that problem with zoomaa. TK would lose the league spot without kenny and since they dont have money that would be bad since they would lose sponsors (just think aboiut how no one talked about them last year ever). LG is a top team and has no reason to trade John. People arent in a hurry to give up their best players to help OG.
nV aren't making a change are they? They have a solid team atm and are a dark horse
Everybody always looks for a change but it might not be there
Very unlikely but is there a chance that OG buys a whole team like TK, Faze or LG and just replace the players for the ones on OG?
Thats technically possible but i dont think that would happen
I know the OG guys went radio silent but any chance Damon/Seth reconcile out of necessity?
I dont see it happening. Its been going on for a long time now.
Any idea what Kosdff was referring to when he was talking about “shadiness” in one of his tweets? Possibly about Kenny or Methodz? I also don’t think Kosdff is the type to trap a player, but I also don’t think he owns the majority of tK to make that decision.
Idk for sure but TK isnt rich. If he loses kenny or accuracy they lose their league spot and become irrelevent again like they were in IW. Something else he did recently says otherwise about him being a good guy
If I was Hecz I'm telling Scump and Crimsix that they will have to play with Karma. Just do it. Play their bluff. I don't think Crimsix and Scump have the balls to leave at this point knowing they won't have Octane, and they couldn't get a sub while on OG. Hecz should play their bluff. Force them to play with Karma.
If hecz did that they would call his bluff since they know if they leave to another org then OG has no more league spot and wont want to keep Octane then. Hecz isnt the real boss at OG anymore anyway.
It seems like there's a major shortage of good sub players this year, everyone and their mother wants to play AR
its a 3 sub game and the best ones are locked up under contract.
Scump, Crim, Octane and Zoomaa or Scump, Crim, Octand anda Methodz? This are the two possible teams?
No on Zoomaa.
Have you heard anything about maybe OG going after temp? He seems like the only option besides royalty for a sub player.
EF is owned by rick fox shaq and the yankees i think so he probably has a big buyout and they dont need money. They also did good at Seattle so why would they change their team?
Funding like that doesn't get taxed like you think it does. Investments into companies aren't considered as income.
No.
Any chance og try to trade methodz to nv for chino and then offer chino and $$$ to tK for kenny, I know that still leaves tK needing a sub player and it doesn’t make sense for nv to let go of chino but og is running out of time and options unless they plan on playing with karma or methodz.
If NV wanted methodz they could of got him before Seattle. 51% OG ends up with methodz playing today.
what was the faze roster in that scrim, because the fact 'zooma' came on to scrim, suggests that he is no leaving!??
same roster
What if he wants to leave ?
Both kenny and methodz are under contract and cant.

wednesday night questions
Did you leak your identity to zoomaa?
he knows me well :D
What if he wants to leave ?
both are under contract and its not up to them
Ah gotcha. I thought you meant some people knew it was you and don't care so they're still telling you. Either way, I'm glad you're doing it. Hate being left in the dark by teams while all this is happening. One of the most entertaining thing for sports fans is offseason moves/trades/FA signing etc. Don't understand why esports make everything so secretive. fan bases would be even more dedicated if pros/orgs let fans be more aware. Anyone who thinks different obviously hasn't seen the traffic this entire subreddit has gained and how much your posts are being looked at everyday. Just my thoughts
people want transparency but get mad when someone tries to give it. OG fans wanted Karma gone for the longest time and now that it happened their mad.
If players salaries were considered an investment rather than salary players would actually have to pay a 40% tax rate on them because their salary would then fall subject to the capital gains tax.
No did you pay taxes last month?
Did you actually tell ZooMa who you were? Or his tweet, as usual, bait?
im silly
If Crim and Scump don't like this line up will they announce FA. Since they haven't signed anything? And have better offers to team with better players?
i guess they could but i doubt it. OG wont make trades if they dont ask those two first.
Since TK is currently without a fourth, any chances they fail to get a 4th and let Kenny walk to OG?
No because they need to have a team in the league or else sponsors would drop them. Every player in the league gets paid a few K too
If tK have lost Methodz, who is their 4th if Kenny is getting locked down?
Probably someone not in the league
What’s the point of forcing a t12 team with a Flukey win stick together?
players are comfortable with certain players. Cod isnt the EPL
what were the two karma tweets about? the laughing emojis and then the 'stories' one
You would have to ask him
Why doesn't crimsix want to play with karma?
He knows the team needed a change and Scump doesnt want to play with Karma
so if tk is low on money say optic give them methodz plus a large amount of money do they still decline the offer cause of a "clause"?
if your talking about for Kenny then yes because they would lose their league spot without kenny. TK could of had Methodz if they paid Rise.
What color hair do you have

Why are you running?
to get swole

someone is deleting my posts so im thinking about moving to twitter to post my pix there
........................... thursday stuff
Seems to me like the 3 sub meta is a problem for a lot of teams due to a lack of elite pro sub players in the scene but didn't the 3 sub meta start when pros decided to GA the best ARs? If they decided to use the FG/ITRA would the meta change to 2 subs, Bar, FG/ITRA? Wouldn't that make teams more balanced?
higher chance of seeing 4 BAR meta lol
Couldn't OpTic just offer like 150k for Kenny? Assuming they were going to buy out Gunless when you were on the roster. tK have no money then surely they'd take some money as currently they're left without a fourth as well. At this point OpTic would have the upper hand since they have more money.
OG wont spend that much on their cod team. TK would lose their league spot which means no more sponsors and no more gfuel house. skrapz sold for 100k euros.
What about Doug "Censor"? Wouldnt he be a decent fit compared to methodz?
coL buyout and i dont think they like him
You mentioned in the original post that there were no contracts/contract issues with Optic. Are Scump and Crim under contract? Has Octane signed a new contract since the trade/ does OG have him locked down? If things keep looking iffy with finding a complete team, are these players going to look to split up and join another team? Or will OG just keep going down the list of subs/flex players until they get one no matter their skill level?
with scump and crim its unclear because everyone got quiet after my first post but i know in the past they told people in 8s they had contract problems with OG....something about their youtube which might be why scump isnt uploading much right now. I dont think scump and crim signed a new contract right now but octane is still under his old contract with LG. I think OG will look for more subs but if it becomes a money issue where OG doesnt want to spend then i think scump and crim will go to the new org for sure. i think their in TX right now negotiating.
So all this "new org" stuff you said in your first post was a load of bs?
nope. More pros know who it is and who the guys were chillin with then are publicly letting on.
Could OG go after Huke or is there no chance nV let him go?
probably no chance. hes their young superstar in the making and probably doesnt have a buyout.
Is the new Optic’s 4th Saints? He and the other guys tweeted some stuff that makes me think he may be
Dont think so and saints cant leave the country
you probably have no idea but why the hell did zoomas girl sleep with kosdoff of all people..
Shes young and dumb and the whole TK house set that fugaze up. Their all snakes. Zoomaa said the same: https://www.reddit.com/CoDCompetitive/comments/8c4yhg/comment/dxct2zt
that got me thinking what is really the adderall situation like in the pro scene? is it all just made up rumours and stories?
Addy and other shit is everywhere in the pro scene. Lots of guys get it from a pro player bc he has a scrip. Mods don’t want me to post the DM screenshots because they like him too much ............................................ friday stuff
So all this "new org" stuff you said in your first post was a load of bs?
Nope and ask any pro there in Seattle even revanjb should know about it by now. Im told OGs offer wasnt as close as the other org but the other org wanted Formal too with that original wishlist with gunless. I heard they tried to get Formal and Karma but decided to wait till BO4 since they wouldnt have a league spot and no team was going to sell theres or had a roster the new org wanted. Maybe L1LandO will confirm if he heard the same stuff.
Completely unrelated to this rostermania but because I'm bored and interested, could you say what unknown roster changes could've happened in the past or even some things the community probably didn't know. Other than that, gotta say thanks for being this open about the intel.
no problem and with dougs leak on sillys stream it should be obvious that it was real. Ill have to think of other stories to post next week but i need to think about them to make sure enough people already know it in the scene and its not just me.
What would you say is the most likely Optic roster at this point? So with Hecz only posting about Scump and Crim is it safe to say Formal and Karma are gone to another team?
yea doug leaked it again tonight.
Ill have to make a new thread for wrap up after roster lock Monday night per the mods request
