An accountant by profession, but my knack for Movies and Gaming has never left the soul. Consider myself to be an old soul when it comes to playing games.I have a huge knack for fast cars and that is why i love Forza and NFS series. However i like to take out my frustration by killing zombies in Dying Light. A die heart fan of Call of Duty franchise. Gladiator & The Shawshank Redemption are eternal love and these are just the tip of the iceberg.
Some Call Of Duty pro players have come forth and have started showing their concerns about the possibility of a change, in the number of members in a team, in competitive mode from 4v4 to 5v5 Competitive In Black Ops 4. If this happens it will certainly not be the only change.
Keeping in mind, Call Of Duty has always had 4v4 teams, this new change is bound to have some tensions and concerns coming its way. Along with the concerned voices, there are a few who think this change might help in finding out some new and hidden talent.
Dan Bunting, who is Co-studio head at Treyarch, explained saying people at Treyarch wants to slow things down for the purpose of meaningful decision making, tactical play, and fruitful communication. This explanation of his has not given any satisfying answers. The concerned still think that what Bunting is explaining, 4v4 setup does exactly that. What is the purpose of changing then?
The first person to raise voice against the issue is the two-time world champion, Patrick Price A.K.A ACHES. He thinks this is not going to work, and they have gone delusional thinking it will bring out opportunities. His exact words go like this.
5v5 would require a large notice before hand (a window they already missed) AND a guarantee it’s 5v5 for the rest of the CWLs lifetime. Players lose money (for sure). Hardpoint becomes a horrible game mode. All for “hoping casuals show more interest” Such a delusional idea.

And for the people that think it gives AMs more chance. Do you actually believe that? The pro players on teams will just shift and be poached, a few orgs would lose their teams bc lack of $. You wouldn’t see a team of pros all pick up 1 AM. Just so so delusional.

Other players who are in agreement with ACHES include Martin Chino A.K.A Chino, Mark Bryceland A.K.A MarkyB, Rhys Price A.K.A Rated, Former professional player Anthony Wheeler A.K.A NAMELESS, Tommy Paparatto A.K.A ZooMaa, Doug Martin A.K.A Censor.
Their respective views go like this.
Martin Chino says the competition will turn into a one-sided event.
I said the same thing last night on stream. People will see a lot more stacked teams and a lot more really bad teams. The way it is now makes for the best competition in tournaments.

Mark Bryceland and Rhys Price are both European players are in agreement with ACHES but thinks differently regarding finding new talent. Their tweets go like this.
I disagree, especially in Europe we would get someone from UNI/Splyce who ever we got would get someone from the other until the left overs team with each other would be near the exact same players as last year just less actual competitive teams.

Anthony Wheeler’s views about 5v5 Competitive In Black Ops 4 are optimistic. Both sides may have their issues but overall he is fine with the change his tweet goes like this.
I think 5v5 changes team composition at its core. I don’t think it just creates “super teams” I believe you’re gonna be able to give teams who are at the cusp of being great that extra slayer and then they’re a competitor. Both sides can be argued.

This news has yet to be confirmed by Treyarch and Activision. Keeping in view the short amount of time left in the release of the game, if it is so then soon there will be some official announcement. Adding to that for the PC users, there is also some good news. A new PC trailer of Black Ops4 has been released, that shows some outstanding optimization of the games graphics and other things.
