Former professional player Tyler ‘TeePee’ Polchow and Noah ‘Vivid’ Wright (of Fortnite fame) have taken first place in the $250,000 streamer invitational hosted by Activision for Modern Warfare.

Even since it’s release on October 25, Modern Warfare has held a steady place near the top of the Twitch popularity charts. Streamers have flocked to play the new Call of Duty release, while professional players have been hard at work trying to hone their skills ahead of the new franchise league.

While there have been plenty of pick-up games, professional scrimmages, and even a few 2v2 Gunfight tournaments, the streeamer invitational was the first big prize money event – despite some blowback from CoD pros over those who have been selected.

Activision.The Streamer Invitational will be one of the first big events in Modern Warfare.

What is the streamer Invitational?

20 top streamers were split into teams of four, battling it out for their share of the massive prize pool in a variety of modes, showing off Modern Warfare in a competitive light.

While the majority of the competitors were not inherent to the Call of Duty scene, some top players and content creators like TeePee, Hitch and Hutch were in attendance. Fortnite pros Aydan and Vivid also took part, as well as a handful of streamers best known for a variety of other games.

Black Ops Cold War has, once again, gotten a small update. This time around, we have the addition of a brand new map in Nuketown ’84, as well as some fixes for camo progression and Zombies. Here’s everything you need to know.

It seems like Treyarch isn’t slowing down with the updates for Black Ops Cold War. Just a day after their last one, the developer has once again released a brand new update for the first-person shooter, marking the fourth overall update since Friday.

Like the update November 23 update, this isn’t a full blown patch, meaning you won’t have to download anything on your system in order to take advantage of the new changes. Rather, the game settings will be automatically updated when you open the game.

While this update doesn’t change anything drastic about the game, aside from one aspect, it’s still a noteworthy update for a number of reasons. Here’s everything you need to know about it.

Biggest changes in the Black Ops Cold War Nov 24 update

Activision
The biggest addition in the November 24 update is that of Nuketown ’84.

Easily the biggest addition to the game is that of Nuketown ’84. It is the first post-launch piece of content for the game so its inclusion is a big deal to say the least. The map itself seems almost identical to the original from 2010 in terms of layout. In fact, within the lore, it is a “Site B” to the original Nuketown, which explains why it looks identical.

It’s also worth noting that this map is also available in the PlayStation exclusive Onslaught mode, which pits two players against the undead in standard multiplayer maps.

In addition to Nuketown ’84, Double XP and Weapon XP is live within Black Ops Cold War. According to Treyarch, the bonus is set to remain live for around a week, until November 30. This should give fans a good chance to grind out their weapons and get all the attachments/camos they want.

Beyond that, a bunch of other glitches were also fixed. Mainly, two bugs associated with camos in the game have been resolved, including one that had to do with Knife camo progression not working if it was selected as a primary weapon.

As with every other update so far, Zombies also got a number of fixes as well. Almost all of them are minor and none of them seem to address the crashes associated with the mode but, nonetheless, they’re still noteworthy.

All in all, it’s good to see that Black Ops Cold War is getting frequent updates. Even if they’re small game updates, hopefully they continue in the future.
