With just a few days left until the start of CWL Vegas, the official bracket has been released for the teams that will be competing in the Open Bracket. 

CWL Vegas will mark the true start of the Black Ops 4 competitive season after players have only faced off in online events over the last few weeks.

While many of the fan-favorite teams receive automatic invites to the Pool Play portion of the event, many more teams will battle it out in the Open Winners Bracket to fight for the final four spots in Pools. 

Lalo TorresSeth ‘Scump’ Abner and OpTic Gaming will be looking to add another win to their already long list of wins in the Black Ops 4 season.

Being the first LAN event of the season, it’s no surprise to see that a great number of teams have registered for this open bracket.

The 256 teams were seeded based on Pro Points from the WWII season and will be competing in a double-elimination bracket made up of best-of-3 series up until the qualifying rounds where it will be best-of-5. 

The Top 4 teams from the Winner’s Bracket will move directly into Pools, while the Top 4 from the Loser’s Bracket will slot into the Championship Bracket Loser’s Round 1.

Adam ‘KiLLa’ Sloss will compete in the Open Bracket at CWL Vegas with Raise by Kings.

Even though most of the major organizations are either already in either Pools or the Play-In Tournament, there’s no reason to think that these teams won’t put on a show.

At almost every CWL open event, there are tons of upsets and exciting matches that take place all throughout the Open Bracket, and there’s no reason to think that CWL Vegas will be any different.

Warzone pro Aydan reveals his biggest problems with Black Ops Cold War

Now that the Black Ops Cold War Beta is available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, more and more people are starting to give their opinion on the game so far. Warzone player and streamer Aydan has also chimed in his opinions on it, and needless to say, it’s not all positive.

With the second weekend of the Black Ops Cold War Beta starting on October 15, 2020, almost everyone who wants to play the game has the ability to do so. While it’s technically not open to all Xbox and PC players quite yet, tons of people have jumped in, played a number of different matches and provided feedback – which makes sense, given it’s a pre-release version.

Even since the first weekend, more competitive players like Shroud, Aches, Scump, Drift0r, and others have talked about what they like and dislike about the game and so far, it seems like a fairly mixed bag. Now, another player has joined the fray.

Warzone Twitch streamer and YouTuber Aydan took to Twitter to offer feedback about the Black Ops Cold War Beta, and there are a couple of things he would like to see addressed.

According to him, while the movement in the game is fun overall, he wishes there were a different system in place other than sliding due to the fact that last year’s entry, the highly-debated Modern Warfare (2019), had the same feature.

In addition, he also complained about dropshotting being ineffective in the game, claiming that laying down and standing up is way too slow.

“I don’t necessarily want dropshotting to be effective in all gunfights, but laying down in general is way to slow,” Aydan said in a reply to another user.

It’s not all bad for Aydan, however; In a reply to his original tweet, he said that the gun balancing, wildcard system, and killstreaks in the beta are all fun, but that overall he would give it a 6/10 if he had to rate it now and 7 or 8/10 once the full thing releases.

Treyarch is constantly fine-tuning the game, so it wouldn’t be surprising if the developer makes similar changes before the final version. That being said, it remains to be seen just how much it changes.
