The second day of CWL Anaheim is officially underway and the first four CWL Pro League teams have been eliminated from the $325,000 tournament.

Following the new format for the 2019 season, the playoffs of CWL Anaheim only features teams from the CWL Pro League, with the amateur squads playing in a separate tournament at the event.

While some teams stumbled during the first day of competition, they certainly came to play at the start of Day Two, leading to some interesting results to open the day.

Team Envy - TwitterEnvy had the worst showing of the weekend after failing to win a single map during CWL Anaheim.

Unfortunately for Team Envy, they were the talk of the afternoon following a 3-0 loss to Team Reciprocity. With the team failing to pick up a map once again, they closed out the event with an abysmal 0-12 record. With only a couple of months left until Champs this August, Envy will certainly need to make some adjustments to keep the season from slipping away completely.

Following behind Envy was Midnight Esports, who has yet to make it past the second round of a tournament all season. While they finished with a 1-2 record from Pool C, they were no match for a rejuvenated UNITS squad that torched them to the tune of a 3-0 sweep.

MLGMuch has changed for Luminosity Gaming since winning the CWL Fort Worth Championship.

The final two series of the first Losers round were much closer, with both going to absolute distance of Game 5 Round 11 Search & Destroy rounds. Despite taking  a 2-0 lead early on, Evil Geniuses were unable to hold on against Splyce and met an early exit for the second straight event.

Meanwhile, Luminosity narrowly escaped an early defeat by holding on with a 3-2 win over the scrappy UYU squad. The two teams traded wins back and forth all series long before LG stood tall with one final clutch 1v2 from Richard ‘Ricky’ Stacy.

After revealing Black Ops Cold War’s Zombies mode back in September, Treyarch has now done a deep dive into all the changes coming to the mode. It seems like, in some regards, it’s going to be a completely different experience this time around.

If you’re excited about Black Ops Cold War’s iteration of Zombies but are hungry for more details, then you’ll be happy to know that Treyarch just delivered.

Thanks to a new blog post, the developer has given fans a deep dive into all the new changes coming to the game. While the developer ended up confirming a number of different features that previously leaked a few days back, they also revealed some wholly new information.

New perks for Zombies

While the developer officially confirmed the six perks that will be available at launch, including the exact statistics they will change, more will be announced when new maps get added to the game, in true Treyarch fashion.

The ones currently implemented, however, are sure to please longtime fans.

  • Jugger-Nog: 50% increase in health
  • Quick Revive: 50% increase in health regen speed
  • Speed Cola: 15% increase in reload speed
  • Stamin-Up: Increase in sprinting speed (percentage unclear)
  • Deadshot Daquri: ADS automatically moves sights to enemy weak spot (aim-assist)
  • Elemental Pop: Every bullet has a chance to apply random Ammo Mod effect

Black Ops Cold War Zombies weapons and scorestreaks

While weapon rarities isn’t new information for Black Ops Cold War Zombies, as it was previously announced by Treyarch during the initial reveal, the developer has finally gone into more detail about what it all means.

Like Warzone, each weapon that you pull from the wall or Mystery Box will be a certain weapon: Common, Uncommon, Rare, Epic, and Legendary. As expected, the higher the weapon rarity, the higher damage it deals and the more attachments it’ll have.

In addition, the mystery box will now contain scorestreaks on top of that, which was easily one of the coolest part of the original reveal trailer.

  • Combat Bow
  • Sentry Turret
  • War Machine
  • Chopper Gunner
  • Self-Revive

Right now, it’s unclear if the only way that players will be able to get their hands on these valuable items will be through the Mystery Box, although previous leaks have indicated that Zombies will also be able to drop them.

All weapons in Black Ops Cold War, including the ones pulled from Mystery Boxes, have rarities.

New Exfil feature

The final feature that Treyarch revealed new details about was the new Exfil feature, which allows players to end their match before they die. According to the devs, you’ll only be able to do this from Round 10 onwards.

That being said, if you’re able to reach the extraction point within the time allotted, you’ll receive extra XP, as well as some Raw Aetherium Crystals, which can be used to upgrade your weapons.

All of this, combined with all the leaks we know including the armor changes, the upgrade system, and the salvage system, which have now all been confirmed by Treyarch, makes it seem like this year’s iteration is going to be wild.
