Scump explains why scorestreaks weren’t used at the CDL Kickoff Classic
Some fans were confused why scorestreaks weren’t used at the CDL Kickoff Classic, so OpTic Chicago’s Scump set the record straight.
The Call of Duty League Kickoff Classic pitted 2021’s 4v4 CDL teams against each other for the first time, but some fans were confused why competitors weren’t using scorestreaks. Talking on Twitch, OpTic Chicago’s Scump explained why.
Scorestreaks are an integral part of Call of Duty, where staying alive and maintaining a killstreak can reap massive rewards. While not as common in competitive Call of Duty, streaks are used to reward the most dominant players.
Streaks were GA’d (Gentlemen’s Agreement not to use them) in Modern Warfare but will be making a return in CDL 2021 in Black Ops Cold War. Many scorestreaks have already been removed by the league, but pros have adjusted this further through GAs.
The Artillery Strike and Cruise Missile have had their values changed, and unlike public multiplayer lobbies, scores will reset on death. If players stay alive and can call in either of these streaks, the course of the game could change dramatically.
However, in the CDL Kickoff Classic on January 23 and 24, scorestreaks weren’t called in at all, which led to confusion amongst fans.
Why scorestreaks weren’t used in the CDL Kickoff
Talking to his Twitch chat following his team’s decisive victory over the LA Thieves, a viewer asked Scump why streaks weren’t used at the weekend.
“Apparently something in the ruleset in CDL… I think you can’t set the amount of points that you unlock the streak at or they insta-stack, I’m not sure,” said Scump. “Something was messed up with the streaks though, that’s why.”
While some fans and players prefer having no scorestreaks, the fact they weren’t used in the Kickoff isn’t indicative of their future in CDL 2021.
“I think we’re planning on using them but they were messed up this weekend,” Scump concluded.
There are plans to bring scorestreaks to the league in future, but as the Kickoff Classic was a friendly tournament to showcase the new teams, not everything was entirely set up yet.
Expect to see scorestreaks being used when the Call of Duty League officially begins on February 11 with the Atlanta FaZe’s Home Series.
