Professional Call of Duty player Tom ‘Tommey’ Trewren has had a nightmare attempting to travel to the 2018 Call of Duty Championships.

The annual event is the biggest event of the calendar year for competitive CoD fans, and on August 19 there will be four players who will be crowned WWII world champions.

It hasn’t been plane sailing (no pun intended) for everyone. British player Tommey was attempting to catch a flight on August 13 when he ran into severe traffic in his taxi, and as a result, missed out on being able to check in for his flight to Columbus.

The Team Vitality player explained that he had a terrible morning and eventually missed his the cut off time to check in by 20 minutes.

To compound his misery, because it was technically his fault, he was forced to pay £350 ($446) to reschedule another flight for the next day and had to pay £105 ($133) for a new hotel.

He Tweeted out the news following his ordeal.

Team Vitality will have a tough time at the event as it is, with a number of betting companies in Europe having their odds as high as 100/1 to win the event. That means if you put on $1 you’d get $101 back. In comparison, Rise Nation are 2/1 to take the title.

Tommey and co will fight it out against Echo Fox, Luminosity Gaming, and Havok Esports in Group G. They’ll need to place in the top two to advance through to the Championship Bracket. Matches begin on Wednesday, August 15 at the MLG Arena in Columbus, Ohio.

With Black Ops Cold War just two weeks away from being officially released, Activision and Treyarch have officially unveiled all the PC requirements and recommended specs a fan could dream for, including what you’ll need if you want to run the game on high settings.

Black Ops Cold War is almost here and fans are starting to get hyped for the first-person shooter. With only two weeks left until the game’s official launch, most fans have decided if they are going to be picking it up or if they’re going to be skipping out on this year’s entry.

Up until this point, however, neither Activision or Treyarch given a ton of info about the PC version of the game. That’s now changed as the required and recommended specs have officially been unveiled, as well was the specs you’ll need in order run it on other types of settings.

Black Ops Cold War competitive PC specs

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel I7-8700K or AMD Ryzen 1800X
  • RAM: 16GB
  • HDD: 175GB
  • Video: Nvidia Geforce GTX 1080/RTX 3070 or Radeon RX Vega64 graphics

Black Ops Cold War Ultra RTX PC specs

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel I9-9900K or AMD Ryzen 3700X
  • RAM: 16GB
  • HDD: 250GB
  • Video: Nvidia Geforce RTX 3080

As expected, if you want to run the game on extremely high settings, you’re going to need the PC to match it. That being said, the required specs are better than what was required in the beta, with the full game only requiring an I3 processor while the pre-release version needed an I5.

This, however, shouldn’t be surprise, as full versions of games are almost always more optimized than their pre-release counterparts. That being said, it’ll be interesting to see how bad the low-settings PC version looks once it’s live. Here’s hoping that it won’t be too bad.
