With pool play at the Call of Duty World League Championship 2019 now all wrapped up, it’s time for the knockout stages of the $2 million tournament to kick off.

All eyes are on Los Angeles, CA this week, as it’s where 32 of the biggest and best Call of Duty esports teams have gathered to compete in the 2019 CWL Championship.

Fast forward through two days and 48 matches of pool play, and half of those teams have already been eliminated, leaving 16 squads to clash to the death in the unforgiving gauntlet that is the Championship Bracket.

As always, Champs is a double-elimination tournament, meaning that there are is a Winners and Losers Bracket, so every team will be able to afford losing once and still have a chance to win it all.

The knockout stage will take place August 16-18, culminating with the Grand Final that will decide this year’s kings of Call of Duty.

That said, here is the official Winners Bracket for the $2 million competition, which will be updated live throughout the course of the tournament after each round of matches.

Speaking of AM teams, three of them made it to the knockout stage of the tournament – Team WaR, Sicario Gaming, and Team Singularity – the latter going 3-0 to top Pool E.

Dr Disrespect calls out Activision & Warzone tourney admins for hacker drama

Following scandal over a disqualified cheater in a Warzone tournament, Dr Disrespect is calling out Activision’s lack of an anti-cheat and Twitch Rivals’ lack of a formal process for investigating hacks.

In hours of drama that rocked the competitive Call of Duty: Warzone community, a smaller streamer, ‘Metzy_B,’ was accused of cheating during the $250K Twitch Rivals Doritos Bowl tournament. Prior to the final match of the event, his team was disqualified by tournament admins and stripped of any chance at tournament earnings.

Twitch Rivals have remained relatively quiet on the issue, practically ignoring it during the broadcast and offering up a minimally worded explanation over Twitter. In their explanation, the admins simply explained that Metzy “was ruled to be cheating” and subsequently “removed from the event.”

With that lack of transparency, rumors and accusations flew. Former Call of Duty League pro, one of the highest Warzone earners currently, Thomas ‘Tommey’ Trewren spent hours interrogating the accused and having a friend take control of Metzy’s PC to dive through his logs for any proof of hacks. This all leads to Dr Disrespect asserting that, with or without an Activision anti-cheat, tournament organizers need to do better.

As shared by ‘WickedGoodGames,’ the Two-Time has a clear perspective on this issue. If the developers can’t institute an effective anti-cheat, then every single tournament must “define a process in finding out if he is [cheating] or not … obviously outside of the whole Call of Duty not having an anti-cheat kind of software built in.”

The drama was obviously divisive, as most participants in the tournament believed Metzy (and others) to be cheating, while others weren’t so sure. With no one knowing precisely how Twitch handled the situation, the community was left to investigate themselves.

As Dr Disrespect has heard, the “purple snakes” disqualified Metzy based on “a couple suspicious clips” and without asking to check his computer. This is echoed by the accused himself, who has since commended Tommey for trying to figure out what the admins had failed to.

That account goes directly against others, as fellow competitor BobbyPoff reacted by alleging that Metzy was, in fact, originally reluctant to display his task manager logs.

While the truth may be impossible to find at this point, as Twitch Rivals have given no explanation of their process and any number of files could have been deleted by the time Tommey got access, Dr Disrespect’s point is proven by the drama.

If Activision can’t deliver a functioning anti-cheat and tournament organizers don’t have a strict, transparent policy for hackers — then community infighting over a “grey area” is unavoidable.
