Unknown 9Z Team eliminates Vitality from BLAST Premier Showdown

Avatar

Published

The unknown 9z Team managed to eliminate Vitality in the first round of the BLAST Premier Showdown, in what is likely Cédric “RpK” Guipouy’s final game withthe French team.

9Z, a team that qualified for the Showdown through the South American qualifier, was marked as the heavy underdog going into the series. To make things worse, the team was forced to play with Rajohn “easTor” Linato as a stand-in. 

Vitality seemed to be in control of the game on the first map, as it comfortably won 9z’s Nuke map pick. It was in-game leader Dan “apEX” Madesclaire who showed his team the way, as he topped the charts at the end of the map. 

Going into the second map, Vitality seemed set to win the series in a comfortable 2-0 fashion. 9z had not played Overpass much recently, and even against weaker South American opponents the team only had a 25% winrate.

The first half went as expected. 9z got a small lead on the favored CT side and reached halftime with 9 rounds to its name. 

But Vitality failed to close out the game and as its defense fell flat, 9Z took advantage by extending its lead to a surprise victory. Pushing the series to a third map was already surprising, but 9Z went above and beyond that. They crushed Vitality to start off the third map and took an unexpected 9-0 lead. Vitality looked stunned and disorganized but eventually managed to gather themselves.

In what looked like the start of a historic comeback, the Frenchmen closed the gap. At 13-10, they had won eight maps in a row and were in control of the economy. But thanks to some incredible heroics by Santino “try” Rigal, 9z did the unthinkable and won the map. Vitality is eliminated from the BLAST Premier Spring Showdown, and 9Z will get the chance to continue the dream run in the next round against Heroic.

This is also a devastating blow for Vitality and an unfortunate end to RpK’s run with the team. The team has suffered early eliminations in a string of events and while this could partially be explained away by the consistently stiff competition, a loss to a little-known 9z squad shows that Vitality has some deep problems right now. The team is set to replace RpK with Jason “Kyojin” Nguyen moving forward, but only time will tell if that’s enough to get the team back on top.

How to recruit a friend in World of Warcraft

Avatar

Published

Blizzard Entertainment’s “Recruit A Friend” program is a way for current players to get benefits from recruiting their friends to join them in playing World of Warcraft by offering a range of rewards.

Recruiting friends to play WoW can earn you a plethora of “explorer”-themed goodies as well as free Game Time tokens. So essentially, you pay for parts of your subscription by convincing friends to play too.

Your recruited friends get a couple of benefits as well. Not only do they get an “Extra Spacious Knapsack” to help them start their journey, they also get the ability to summon the person who recruited them every 30 minutes if they’re in a group with them. So you don’t necessarily need to play a Warlock to summon your friends that you just recruited to play with you.

To start your friend recruitment process, all you need to do is go to the social tab in your retail WoW client. The default keybind for opening your friend list in WoW is “o”.

On your social panel in-game, there will be a tab next to “Friends” and “Ignore” labeled “Recruit A Friend.”

At the bottom left of that panel, there will be a red button labeled “Recruitment.” Click that and a new panel will pop out asking you if you’d like to generate a link for your friends to use when setting up their WoW account.

Once you’ve generated and copied that link. Just send it to your friends, and once they’ve set up their WoW subscription, you’ll start to get all the perks from recruiting those friends.

Here is a list of the rewards you can get from recruiting a friend in retail WoW:

  • 1 month: Pet monkey named Rikki
  • 2 months: 30 days of Game Time
  • 3 months: Explorer’s Dunetrekkar mount
  • 4 months: Renowned Explorer title
  • 5 months: 30 days of Game Time
  • 6 months: Stinging Sands weapon enchantment appearance
  • 7 months: Renowned Explorer’s Tabard
  • 8 months: 30 days of Game Time
  • 9 months: Explorer’s Jungle Hopper mount
  • 10 months: Renowned Explorer’s Rucksack
  • 11 months: 30 days of Game Time
  • 12 months: Renowned Explorer’s attire
  • Every three months after 12 months: 30 days of Game Time

Call of Duty Twitter account teases Rambo potentially coming to Warzone

Avatar

Published

on

The official Call of Duty Twitter account posted a cryptic message last night that appears to hint at Rambo, one of the most iconic movie characters of all time, coming to Warzone

John Rambo is the main character from the popular Rambo film series introduced in the early ’80s. Sylvester Stallone has played the character in five feature films and the latest movie was released in 2019. 

Rambo is known for his large size, dangerous demeanor, and ability to take on entire armies single-handedly. He’s appeared in other video games, like Mortal Kombat, as a playable character and the latest teaser indicates that he might be coming to Warzone

The Call of Duty Twitter account posted a message asking if anyone knows SURVIVORJOHN#1009062 and their Warzone Report is a “sight to be seen.” 

The report contains several nods to Rambo, including the obvious nod to his first name. The “player” has five wins, which is the same as the number of Rambo movies, and seven hours played, which is close to the total running time of the movies combined. The “player” also has 552 kills, which is Rambo’s reported total number of kills in the movies. 

The recent switch to Verdansk ’84 introduced the possibility of ’80s action heroes appearing in Warzone to match the setting. This teaser hints that Rambo could be the first character joining the mayhem. Other iconic characters might make an appearance in Warzone in the future, too.

Call of Duty League returns to LAN for Stage 4 Major in Dallas on June 17

The Call of Duty League is going back to LAN next month after more than a year of online-only events.

The Stage Four Major, which begins on June 17, will mark the return of offline events and will be hosted at the Esports Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The Major will run from June 17 to 20 and will feature all 12 of the league’s teams fighting for their share of the $500,000 prize pool and crucial CDL Points.

Nearly 14 months ago, the CDL moved to online-only competition in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. The last time the CDL ran an offline event was in March 2020 when the Dallas Empire won the Los Angeles Home Series. The Empire went on to win the first CDL Championship in August and will now play host to the return of offline events.

There will be no live crowd in attendance, in accordance with “strict COVID-19 protocols,” according to the league. Only teams and limited CDL staff will be in attendance, with rapid response COVID-19 testing taking place throughout the event. Call of Duty League commentators and hosts will remain remote, while Jess Brohard will be on-site for interviews following matches.

This is part of an “initial return to live tournaments,” with all future events following strict protocols as well. Daniel Tsay, the general manager of Call of Duty esports, confirmed with Dot Esports that the Stage Four regular season matches will still be played online. So far, no decisions or announcements have been made regarding the Stage Five Major or the CDL Championship.

Before the Stage Four Major kicks off, however, the final week of Stage Three group play and the Stage Three Major have to be played. The Stage Three Major starts on May 12.
