A number of top Call of Duty players have failed to qualify for the CWL Pro League after some shock results at the qualifying tournament that finished on Sunday, January 20.

The Pro League Qualifier began on January 16 from the MLG Arena in Columbus, featuring the 28 teams who finished from positions 5th to 32nd at CWL Las Vegas descending on Ohio to stake their claim to a spot in the league.

A number of top teams who underperformed at the opening event of the year, including 100 Thieves and FaZe Clan, were in action as a number of shocks saw some surprising names claim a spot in the Pro League.

This left some of World War II’s biggest names outside of the qualification spots, with one of the most significant names to not qualify being FaZe Clan. The North American team were eliminated from the qualifier by French squad Overtime Esports in the second round of the tournament’s losers bracket.

The roster, that contains all-stars like Preston ‘Priestahh’ Greiner, Dillon ‘Attach’ Price and Tommy ‘ZooMaa’ Paparatto were understandably disappointed in their performance, and marks the first time that the historic organization won’t take part in a CWL Pro League season. 

FaZe’s inability to qualify comes as a shock considering how highly hyped they were coming into Black Ops 4 on the back of some success in World War II. In fact, out of all the players that failed to qualify for the Pro League, nobody made more than the core FaZe members who represented the organization last season.

In a post to the CoDCompetitive subreddit, Call of Duty fan mstrite61 calculated all of the players who earnt money in World War II but failed to qualify for the Black Ops 4 Pro League, with players who missed out earning a combined $830,000 in prize money from the last title. 

The four FaZe stars earned a cool $94,500 in World War II. They were closely followed by Martin ‘Chino’ Chino and Anthony ‘Methodz’ Zinni who earnt $71,000 and $54,375, respectively.

Of course, for players who missed out on qualifying for the Pro League, there is still a chance that they will compete in the league, as teams will now begin to search for substitutes who can fill in for their squad when needed.

When will Warzone solos return?

The normal BR Solos are not available in Warzone, with Buy Back Solos and Mini Royale Solos taking its place. When will the normal solo mode come back? Well, here’s what we know.

Ever since Warzone released back in March, a number of different modes have been added alongside the normal quads, trios, and duos modes.

You’ve had things like Juggernaut Royale, Buy Back Quads, and even Zombies Royale to celebrate the spooky Halloween period. However, some players just want the normal battle royale mode that they know and love to be available.

Currently, if you just want to play the normal BR mode – where you hop in, loot, use the gulag if you die, and try to be the last player standing – you can only do so in quads, trios, and duos. It’s not available for solos, and players are asking when it’ll be coming back.

Warzone is full of different modes, not just the normal BR formula.

When will BR Solos return to Warzone?

Well, the answer to that question is… it’s up to Raven Software and Activision. They make the call on when the playlists get updated and when things are rotated in and out.

Currently, solo players can only play Buy Back solos – which takes place in Verdansk – and Mini Royale Solos – which takes place on Rebirth Island. The latter of which was rumored to only be lasting until early January, but we’ve blown past that now.

The next big update that looks to be coming to Black Ops Cold War will drop on February 4 – bringing a new Zombies map with it. That could also see major changes come to Warzone, too. However, if enough players kick up a stink about BR solos still being missing, that could push the devs to change whatever plans they’ve got and bring it back sooner rather than later.

Warzone’s solo mode has become incredibly popular since it was added.

Are Warzone solos gone for good?

Whenever something exits the playlist, some fans immediately ask if it’s been scrapped altogether. And no, that’s rarely ever the case.

While modes like Buy Back and Mini Royale add a nice change of pace, sometimes, you just have to stick with the classic battle royale formula. So, don’t worry too much about it possibly being removed forever. That’s really unlikely to be the case.

So, everything points to us seeing normal solos mode return in the near future, it’s just a matter of when Raven and Activision decide to flip the switch and bring it back.

If anything changes, we’ll keep this post updated so you’ll know when you’ll be getting your fix of normal Warzone solos next.
