With Rostermania looking to be pretty much settled, it's time to take a look at what we can expect from CWL Vegas, the first event of the Black Ops 4 season.

The 2019 CWL season will feature an increased prize pool of $6 million, with $250,000 of that up for grabs at CWL Vegas to open the season.

With this being the first event of the new season, how teams fared in the WWII season will determine their initial placements in Vegas.

CWL Vegas Format (December 7-9, 2018)

  • Pools
    • 20 teams will battle in the pool play portion of the event
      • Top-12 teams from Stage 2 of the WWII season will automatically qualify for pools
        • Any top-12 team that does not retain at least three players from their WWII roster will be replaced by the team with the highest Pro Points from the WWII season
    • Four teams from the Relegation Tournament
    • Four teams from the open bracket
  • Relegation Tournament
    • Eight teams with the most Pro Points from the WWII season who did not automatically qualify will be eligible for the tournament
    • Top four teams move on to Pools
    • The remaining four move into the open bracket
  • Open bracket
    • Open to everyone
      • Teams will be seeded based on their WWII Pro Points

With the off-season Rostermania all but settled at this point, we now have a good idea of where teams will start their Black Ops 4 campaign based on the Pro Points each player gained during the WWII season.

Below is a full list of teams that qualified directly into pools, teams that will play in the relegation tournament, the teams expected to be the best of the open bracket, and a list of free agents who have the most Pro Points from the WWII season.

Note that this list is provisional and will be updated regularly. Not every roster is locked in yet, meaning that a new roster can still come in a change the placement of other teams.
