The full list of teams for the Last Chance Qualifier for CoD Champs 2018 has been confirmed with 32 teams fighting for just 16 spots.

The $1.5m Call of Duty Championships 2018 will take place in Columbus, Ohio, between August 15-19. Who will join the 16 teams qualified already via the CWL Pro League?

For the first time, the annual world championships will feature a global LCQ, rather than regional, in an attempt to ensure only the best teams outside of the Pro League would feature.

Teams from across North America, South America, Europe, and APAC will be flown to Columbus, Ohio, for the 2018 LCQ between July 24-25.

Teams qualified for the tournament via either winning their regional CWL National Circuit competition or by having enough pro points from throughout the season.

A double elimination bracket will decide who makes it into the final sixteen, with all of the matches played out of the MLG Arena ahead of the CWL Pro League Stage Two playoffs.

The full list of qualified teams and bracket can be found below.

4 features Warzone desperately needs in Black Ops Cold War

With season 6 of Warzone out for fans to enjoy and Black Ops Cold War on the way, we’re still excited to see what content updates will drop in the future. Here are four things we want to see added to Call of Duty’s battle royale title.

Warzone’s blisteringly fast kill times, highly customizable loadout drops, satisfying killstreaks, and addictive gunplay makes it one of the most unique entries in the BR genre. Of course, like all good battle royale games, Warzone needs a constant stream of fresh content updates and unique modes to keep players invested. 

Fans are now looking forward to Warzone in the upcoming Black Ops Cold War, releasing on November 13, 2020. We’ve seen some fantastic additions to Warzone already in Modern Warfare, but there are still some things that would be perfect to heighten the experience for players.

1. Return of classic guns

Black Ops Cold War will also carry on the Warzone mode.

The Call of Duty franchise first graced our screens back in 2003 and since then, players have fought their way through the gritty battlefields of WWII, stopped a nuclear cold war, taken down terrorist regimes, and even ventured into the very depths of space.

Each Call of Duty game has introduced a wave of new weapons, attachments, cosmetics, and killstreaks that fans can equip themselves with when venturing into the highly competitive multiplayer arenas. 

As a result, there have been a vast number of historical, modern-day, and futuristic guns added to the franchise over the years. While Warzone’s current arsenal of deadly weaponry is nothing to frown at, we’d love to see some iconic Call of Duty guns return to the scene. 

Fortunately, our prayers have been answered with the release of the CR-56 AMAX (Galil), so there could be a very good chance that we see other fan favourites make their way over to Warzone. After all, we’d love to run around Verdansk with our trusty Thompson SMG at our side. 

2. Dynamic weather conditions

New weather effects could further enhance the game’s action for players to enjoy.

Battle royale fans have wanted dynamic weather conditions for ages and while PUBG has toyed around with various climate conditions, we’ve yet to see other battle royale games take the same leap – after all, Modern Warfare’s multiplayer already has night variants of maps like Azhir Cave, Hackney Yard, Gun Runner, and Rammaza, and Verdansk with The Haunting of Verdansk Halloween event.

While these maps may not feature any new content, the added veil of darkness really helps bring a new dynamic to the overall gameplay. Having a nighttime mode for allows for some brilliantly chaotic moments, particularly when you never know who is lurking in the shadows.

Watching enemy tracer rounds light up the sky, hearing nearby footsteps, and jumping at shadowy silhouettes is exhilarating and terrifying. Further dynamic weather effects would only enhance these emotions.

For example, weather effects that reduce player visibility would call for the use of NVGs (Night Vision Goggles), laser pointers, thermal optics, and Flash Grenades. Having various weather effects would also force players to adapt their current playstyle, drastically switching up the current meta and creating new opportunities for different weapons/attachments to truly shine.

3. Continued Seasonal events

Haunting of Verdansk Roadmap
Full roadmap for the Haunting of Verdansk event in Warzone & Modern Warfare.

With Halloween’s ‘Haunting of Verdansk’ now live on Warzone, we’ve got a great taste of seasonal content that incentivizes players to play. We think it would be a fantastic opportunity to expand on these events with further seasonals, such as a Holiday event featuring holiday bonuses; a thick layer of snow or a blizzard draping the map, with special cosmetics focusing around the time of year across different cultures.

These weather changes to Verdansk will force players to restrategize and approach their matches differently, requiring them to rethink their weapon add-ons such as optics, and differing perks like Cold Blooded.

4. Further map updates 

ActivisionChanges to Warzone’s map could drastically impact the way we play.

Warzone players have been busy opening the various bunkers dotted around the map, collecting the rare loot inside, and scrutinizing details in order to uncover the game’s secrets.

The opening of a few bunkers may seem small, but it’s this kind of change that helps keep the map interesting for new and veteran players. Epic Games and Respawn are constantly adding, removing, and even destroying vast sections of their battle royale maps, so we’d love to see Verdansk receive the same treatment. 

For example, Warzone’s Gora Dam could begin to crack under the pressure as the frozen reservoir begins to thaw, leading to a catastrophic event that sees vast sections of the map partially destroyed or flooded. Not only would this make for an awesome in-game spectacle, it would also drastically alter the way players traverse their way around Verdansk.

We’ve seen cool additions to Verdansk’s map as of late with the Football stadium opening, and a new train traversing the map, both allowing players new POI experiences in-game, but constant graduating changes to the map will keep it fresh and appealing for returning players.

New aquatic vehicles could even be introduced to further supplement this change. The possibilities are seemingly endless and we can’t wait to see what the future holds for Warzone when Black Ops Cold War releases.
