Hall of Fame Wrestler Suing Activision for COD Likeness

Here is a story I came across that gave me a bit of a chuckle. As well as being a huge Call of Duty fan I am also a huge wrestling fan so this is a news story that appealed to me on two levels.

Anyway, the folks at Activision have a lawsuit on their hand from retired WWE wrestler, Booker T. Booker T in case you do not know is a big deal, former world champion, WWE Hall of Fame inductee and he is highly thought after in the wrestling world.

Clearly, someone at Treyarch is a wrestling fan as one of their characters in Call of Duty Black Ops IIII, Prophet. Is clearly based on Booker T! What is funny about this is that as I and my buddies are wrestling fans we have referred to Prophet as Booker T since the game came out and we just did this for fun and thought that it was something Treyarch did for fun.

Well Booker T is not happy they have used his likeness without permission and is suing them for it. As a fan of Booker T and COD, I really do think that every effort was made to make Prophet look just like Booker T. When you see the two side by side there is no way that this was a coincidence.

What I think is strange is that Booker T’s legal team are saying that they have copied G.I Bro. This was a character Booker T used to portray. I am not so sure, as a fan of both the wrestler and the game that I would agree with that, but clearly, the face that they have used is based on Booker T!

While I find this a rather amusing news story, I must admit that this is not the first time a celebrity has been unhappy with the unauthorized use of their likeness in a game. It could set an interesting precedent for gaming if he is victorious in his case.

Call of Duty has always had strong celebrity ties in their games so you have to wonder what they were thinking here? If someone at Treyarch was a fan of Booker T (which I think they clearly were) why not just ask the man if they can use him in the game?

Tips For Call Of Duty Blackout Mode In Black Ops IIII

Know Where You Want To Land

Make a decision where you want to land before the match starts, have a few different places in mind and then as soon as you can make it, jump and get to the ground as quickly as possible. The faster you get to the ground the faster you can get a weapon. Do not screw around with your wing suit or you will land and struggle to find a weapon before another player finds you.

Keep On Moving

My first couple of matches, I would get a weapon and stick with that for as long as possible, sometimes hiding and waiting for others to come my way. I did not have much success at all with this. I would advise that you always keep moving and looking for something better than what you have. This keeps you on your toes and ready for any guys who are trying to take you down.

Do Not Sit On Your Perks

The perks that you can get in Blackout mode are awesome and do not do what I did at first and that was waiting for the “perfect time” to use them. The perfect time may never come and you sure as hell cannot use them when you are dead. I use any perk or consumable as soon as I get it.

Keep Playing

The best advice I can give you is to just keep playing. You will get better each time, figure out new strategies, learn the map better and best of all you will have a lot of fun while you play.

Some Light Has Been Shed On Call Of Duty 2019

If you look at Activision right now it is a mess. The hundreds of people that have lost their jobs really does suck. It is a damn shame for those people and hopefully, they can find a new job sooner than later.

As part of an Activision’s earnings report though as well as the bad news that is currently floating around. Call of Duty 2019 was
