ZLANER INTERVIEWED!! | Warzone Ranked, State of Caldera, and His Path to Success

ZLANER INTERVIEWED!! | Warzone Ranked, State of Caldera, and His Path to Success

December 23, 2021

This week Doug & Gojj change it up a bit with an EXCLUSIVE Interview with the man, the myth, the legend - ZLANER himself! We talk through the state of warzone and the current "competitive" scene, the tournaments ZLaner has participated in (most notably recently the Baka Bros WonderLAN event), as well as what a true Warzone Ranked mode would look like and do for the game. After quite a bit of discourse around Warzone proper, we dive deep into ZLaner's history with gaming, competing, and even singing career (that may make a return!). Of course Z talks through the story of the first time he got the chance to interact with Dr. Disrespect and how the right timing, bit of luck, and a lot of skill helped propel his already successful career into something more. 

Join us in welcoming ZLaner to the podcast, and let us know what you think of interview style episodes like this!

HALLOWEEN WARZONE EVENT IS HERE!! | *The Haunting* Good or Bad?? - MWZ Weekly #11

October 23, 2021

Call of Duty has officially added the Ghosts of Verdansks Playlist as "The Haunting" Event begins!

Featuring the “Ghosts of Verdansk” limited-time mode, The Haunting in Warzone brings Verdansk back under nightfall. Completing The Haunting’s challenges will unlock the prototypical LAPA (BOCW) – the first-ever ranged weapon event reward – which will also have a unique Weapon Blueprint available in the Store alongside Halloween-themed Bundles.

For the full details about The Haunting event in Warzone and Black Ops Cold War, check out the official blog here!

Gojj & Doug also break down a myriad of other topics:
- Iron Trials problems and its hopeful future
- Issues with Ghost perk in custom matches
- How Activision backs Warzone tournaments

- Future of Warzone tournaments with Vanguard release

Then, they spend a section of time on brand new information that has surfaced about hacker stream-snipers being paid THOUSANDS of dollars to kill large streamers enough times in a row to get them to end stream. In particular Fifakill has brought this to light, but the bounties have been put on most larger streamers (Mutex, TimtheTatman, etc.)

Finally, the end of the episode is a lively debate and conversation about Aim Assist strength in Warzone and advantages of Keyboard & Mouse against controller.

WARZONE ANTI-CHEAT IS HERE!! | Everything You Need to Know feat. JGOD & Mavriq! - MWZ Weekly #10

October 14, 2021

Call of Duty has officially announced the new Anti-Cheat called "Ricochet"!! This episode breaks down everything you need to know about what it is, when its coming, and how it works.

We are joined by JGOD & Mavriq for this episode, both providing extremely valuable insight from behind the scenes of what they know and have heard about this anti-cheat. Stay until the end for an awesome Q/A session as well!

The RICOCHET Anti-Cheat initiative is a multi-faceted approach to combat cheating, featuring new server-side tools which monitor analytics to identify cheating, enhanced investigation processes to stamp out cheaters, updates to strengthen account security, and more. RICOCHET Anti-Cheat’s backend anti-cheat security features will launch alongside Call of Duty®: Vanguard, and later this year with the Pacific update coming to Call of Duty: Warzone.

In addition to server enhancements coming with RICOCHET Anti-Cheat is the launch of a new PC kernel-level driver, developed internally for the Call of Duty franchise, and launching first for Call of Duty: Warzone. This driver will assist in the identification of cheaters, reinforcing and strengthening the overall server security. The kernel-level driver launches alongside the Pacific update for Warzone later this year.
