Only six teams remain at the 2018 CWL Championship as Sunday is upon us, with only North American teams left in the running.

Saturday saw six teams bow out, including the final three European squads Red Reserve, Team Vitality and UNILAD, plus the three lesser rated North American teams, Lightning Pandas, Ghost Gaming and Elevate.

Evil Geniuses and Team Kaliber are the only teams left standing after a tough winners bracket, and will face off for a spot in the grand finals.

But before that, Luminosity and eUnited will play to avoid elimination and secure top four, as Luminosity look to complete what would be a miraculous losers bracket run.

eUnited were defeated by Team Kaliber on Saturday evening, but will still be full of confidence having made it to Sunday.

Another all star match will be up after that too, with FaZe Clan also looking to complete an equally impressive losers bracket run, but will have to get past Team Envy first, who were reverse swept by EG in a crushing winners semi-final.

Matches will begin at 12pm ET / 9am PT / 5pm BST / 2am AEST. Full schedule below.

Team 1 vs Team 2 PST EST BST AEST
eUnited Alpha Luminosity 9:00am 12pm 5pm 2am
Team Envy Bravo FaZe Clan 9:00am 12pm 5pm 2am
Evil Geniuses Alpha Team Kaliber 10:30am 1:30pm 6:30pm 3:30am
Lower Bracket Semi-Final Bravo 10:30am 1:30pm 6:30pm 3:30am
Lower Bracket Final Alpha 12pm 3pm 8pm 5am
Grand Final Alpha 1:30pm 4:30pm 9:30pm 6:30am

Team Kaliber will go into the day as favorites, but will know they can’t count out Patrick “ACHES” Price and his Evil Geniuses squad, who have been as resilient as anyone this event.

Luminosity and eUnited is difficult to call, as is FaZe and Envy. The latter have played each other alread this tournament, and so FaZe will hope they can get revenge after being reverse swept by Envy in their winners round one match.

Infinity Ward confirm fix for Warzone’s unlimited Stim glitch

A new game-breaking bug is making the rounds in Call of Duty: Warzone, allowing players to abuse unlimited Stim Shots and survive permanently in the gas for easy, unfair wins on Verdansk. Fortunately, Infinity Ward have confirmed they’re fixing it.

Imagine surviving until the very end of a battle royale, evading toxic gas and dangerous opponents to stand alone in the final circle as the last remaining team and presumptive victors. Then you look at the top of your screen and realize there’s another team still alive, possibly more, but you can’t see them in the circle.

That’s been the experience for many of Warzone’s players over the past couple days, as a new glitch is allowing exploitative players to survive in the green fog of the game’s gas for as long as they want with an unlimited supply of Stim Shots. Teams that respect the rules are losing out to sly gas goblins.

On the plus side, this shouldn’t remain an issue for too much longer, as the developers have confirmed they are aware of the glitch and working on a solution.

Much of the Call of Duty fanbase is thrilled that the fixes for the glitched AS VAL SSP 10-R mags and SP-R .300 Norma and .338 Lapua mags were finally deployed on October 8. The two weapons were broken and unbearable for players given the former’s ability to kill through multiple walls and the latter’s capacity to remain hitscan within 450 meters of range.

But, while those nerfs came through within just around a week of Modern Warfare and Warzone’s Season 6 update, the community may not be comfortable waiting as long for a fix to the unlimited Stim Shot glitch. 

At the moment, popular streamers and competitive players seem to have joined the masses in expressing serious frustration with the glitch. Among others, Call of Duty League caster Clint ‘Maven’ Evans has criticized the bug for numerous dissatisfying losses.

While not wanting to spread exactly how the glitch is performed and widen its presence, it is not particularly difficult to achieve and simply requires three items: a frag, a stim, and a self-revive kit. As such, it presents one of the game’s more notorious bugs and should be a major priority for a quick patch.

At the moment, Infinity Ward have confirmed a fix is in the works and that it remains “in progress” according to the team’s Trello board. As always, we will update as soon as things change, but, for now, remember to keep an eye on the gas when you deploy in Verdansk.
