Several Spanish players have reported that their flight to Columbus, OH for the CWL Last Chance Qualifier has received a last minute cancellation.

With just one day before the event is scheduled to take place, the players for Team Heretics and the coach of Vodafone Giants find themselves at risk of missing out.

The news first broke out when Heretics player ‘Methodz’ tweeted out from the JFK Airport in New York that their connecting flight to Columbus had been cancelled.

Flight from NYC to Columbus cancelled, and the funny thing is that I put one for the next day from another airport called “La Guardia” I’m busting my balls.

In a previous tweet that has since been deleted, Methodz mentions that the people affected by this cancellation are his teammates ‘Lucky, Jurnii, and Suky’ and Vodafone Giants coach ‘Kennon.’

As the above tweet mentions, the next available flight takes off from the La Guardia Airport on the very same day of the LCQ, putting the players and the coach at risk of missing out on the event.

Having qualified for the event on the virtue of winning the Spanish CWL National Circuit Stage 4, Heretics are scheduled to face NA team Vertacon in the first round.

Returning for his final event of the Call of Duty League offseason, Team Summertime’s Davis ‘Hitch’ Edwards is hosting an enormous Black Ops 2 Invitational featuring former champions and popular content creators.

Throwback tournaments have been all the rage throughout the 2020 offseason and no one has been leading the charge quite like Hitch. Outside of hosting Warzone comps, his unique tournaments have spanned from Modern Warfare 2 to Black Ops 4. This time, his sights are set on 2012’s Black Ops 2.

Despite hackers ruining an early test for this particular event, the kinks have all seemingly been worked out. From former championship-winning teams to some of the biggest content creators, Hitch’s final event is set to be the biggest yet.

From how you can tune in, to every player joining the all-star Call of Duty event, we’ve got you covered. Here’s everything there is to know about the Black Ops 2 Invitational.

How to watch the Black Ops 2 Invitational

The final event of the offseason is set to kick off on Wednesday, October 28. Opening matchups will be going live at 3PM EST (12PM PT) and the broadcast will likely run for most of the day.

As per usual, it’s all expected to be featured on Hitch’s own Twitch stream which we’ve embedded below. A majority of the players and creators will likely be sharing their own perspectives throughout the event as well.
