The Call of Duty League pros have difficulty practicing with Krampus during the Vanguard Festive fervor event.
In a tweet from General Manager of Los Angeles Thieves Eric “Muddawg” Sanderson shared a video of a clutch that is ruined by Krampus. Krampus recently added to the game with the Festive Fervor event in Vanguard. Its aim is to hunt down players on the map who are not playing the target. This affects both Control and Hardpoint game modes for the CDL playlist. In the video, the opponents of LA Thieves are pursued by the large monster that will stop at nothing to kill its target.
I’ve finished writing an email, look at Codcaster and see BIG KRAMPUS devastating the lobby. Scrims are going well today for anyone who is wondering. pic.twitter.com/7QXDL7KdX7

“I’ve finished writing an email, look at Codcaster and see how BIG KRAMPUS is devastating the lobby,” Muddawg said on Twitter. “Scrims are going well today for anyone who is wondering.”
This isn’t the only time the Krampus monster caused problems in Call of Duty. When the patch went live in Warzone the game would crash, Kick players out of the lobby when Krampus spawns on the map. The monster affects not only the average player, but also the professionals who try to practice.
Call of Duty players are requesting that the holiday event be disabled
Under the ‘Krampus warzone’ tag on Twitter, gamers on every console are unhappy with Sledgehammer Games’ holiday additions. Not only does Krampus keep players from practicing, it also costs Warzone players as the NPC is basically immortal.
The Christmas event is live in all CDL game modes …

“The holiday event is live in all CDL game modes,” said Intel CDL on twitter. “Please turn off @SHGames before the Challenger Cup this weekend.”
And as if the ball sponge wasn’t enough, Sledgehammer Games has also added creepy elves to the map. These elves will keep making noise from their hiding spots until they are found by a player and immediately shot. What was intended as a fun addition to the festive event became a nuisance for professional gamers who want to play the game without the distractions.
