The next instalment of the $2,500 CMG ProDown tournament takes place over January 27 and 28, as some of the best North American-based Call of Duty teams take part in the online event.

The majority of the field is made up of professional rosters, with some aspiring pro teams making up the numbers, making sure that whatever stream you tune into, you’re sure to see some of the some of best talent in the game. 

With CWL 2K tournaments now pretty much meaningless for professional teams as they’ve acquired the needed Pro Points, the CMG ProDown should give them some tougher practice in high pressure situations.

It also helps that there is some some decent prize money on the line too.

MLGOpTic will look to continue their dominance in these tournament.

When does it start?

Matches will begin at will begin at 2pm EST / 7pm GMT / 11am PT on Sunday January 27.

The ProDown tournaments are typically played over two days, due to the lengthy best-of-5 winners bracket rounds, the best-of-5 losers bracket matches and just the general set up and starting of games.

What is the bracket?

In total there are 16 teams and round one matches are as follows:

  • ENVY vs TeddyReck’s Team
  • Splyce vs Team Space
  • Midnight Gaming vs ExcelerateGG
  • Parasite’s team vs OpTic Gaming
  • Nameless’ Team vs Luminosity Gaming
  • Evil Geniuses vs UYU
  • Twizz’s Team vs 100 Thieves
  • eUnited vs SZN

The full updating bracket can be found on CMG’s website.

What is the format?

It’ll be a typical CMG ProDown format. A double elimination, CWL Variant in a best-of-five winners bracket and a best-of-five losers bracket. 

Matches will be played on the Control, Hardpoint and Search and Destroy game modes on the maps Arsenal, Frequency, Gridlock, Hacienda, Payload and Seaside. 

Where can I watch?

A number of professional players from different teams will usually stream the event. Bar the exception of one Pro Down event earlier in the year when there were no streams as pros opted against it.

MrDalekJD has opened up on his biggest wishes for Call of Duty: Warzone in the future on the CharlieIntel podcast, including more storytelling and a new map.

Jon ‘MrDalekJD’ Hutchinson is a beloved figure in the Call of Duty scene. Even though his content revolves around Zombies, he’s played the game for many years now, and the community values his opinions.

So, when asked on the CharlieIntel podcast what he’d like to see happen from Warzone in the future, people were listening. Spoiler alert, it’s in line with what most other players hope to see too.

MrDalekJD is known for his videos on Call of Duty: Zombies.

“The thing with Warzone is they [got] pretty good, well it seemed at the time, really good at telling an underlying story that was being slowly unraveled every season,” he said. “It was all to do with the rockets and Bunker 11 and Bunker 10 and all that. It was amazing.”

“I think if they just continue with that, that’s enough to keep me happy,” he added. “But I do think we are due for a new map. I love Verdansk to pieces. It’s a fantastic map. Massive props to Infinity Ward and Raven on that because it’s incredible.”

“But I think it is time for Treyarch to step in and bring in a new Cold War-themed Warzone map,” he said. It’s something that most players want and expect, and it seems like it’s only a matter of time before it happens.

MrDalekJD isn’t alone in his views, especially when it comes to wanting a new map. Verdansk has been fantastic, but it’s become a little stale to veteran players, and the show must go on.

Black Ops Cold War has already been out for several months now. So, a new Warzone map can’t be too far away. However, there still has been no official word on when we can expect it.

Until then, all we can do is sit back, relax, and twiddle our thumbs while we wait.
