Format & prizing

The 2020 Call of Duty League postseason is a massive double-elimination tournament that’s split into two sections: the Playoffs, which run from August 19 to August 23, and the Championship Weekend, which takes place August 29 and 30.

Due to a midseason change to the format, all 12 teams are competing in the playoffs, with the top eight seeds from the regular season starting off in the winners bracket and the bottom four facing elimination right away in the losers.

CDLAtlanta FaZe, Dallas Empire, and Chicago Huntsmen all get to skip the first round of the CDL Playoffs thanks to their top-four finishes in the regular season.

The match format, as usual, is best-of-five, featuring two Hardpoints, two Search and Destroys, and one Domination. This will apply to all matches except the Championship Grand Final, which will be a best-of-nine with the team from the winners bracket starting off with a 1-0 lead.

  • Map 1—Hardpoint
  • Map 2—Search and Destroy
  • Map 3—Domination
  • Map 4—Hardpoint
  • Map 5— Search and Destroy
  • Map 6—Domination
  • Map 7—Hardpoint
  • Map 8—Search and Destroy

As for the prizing, the top 10 placing teams each earn at least a $100,000 share of the $4.6 million pool, meaning that the two sides that get eliminated in the first round will exit empty-handed.

  • League Champion—$1.5 million
  • Runner-up—$900,000
  • 3rd place—$600,000
  • 4th place—$450,000
  • 5th/6th place—$300,000 (2 teams)
  • 7th/8th place—$175,000 (2 teams)
  • 9th/10th place—$100,000 (2 teams)
  • 11th/12thplace—$0 (2 teams)

In addition to the $1.5 million, the champions will also receive a full-size throne, the 2020 championship trophy, and commemorative rings.

Teams & Rosters

All of the teams except one are featuring the same roster that they finished the regular season with, the lone exception being the Minnesota ROKKR.

How to get free Texas Chainsaw Massacre emblem & calling card in Warzone

Activision has officially unveiled all the details about the Haunting of Verdansk event coming to Call of Duty: Warzone, and it’s going to be packed with spooky content. To celebrate, Lionsgate is offering special Texas Chainsaw Massacre-themed content for the game, and we’ve got the details on how to unlock them.

After being leaked around a week ago, Activision has finally unveiled its Saw and Texas Chainsaw Massacre crossovers in Warzone. Players will soon be able to purchase bundles based on the two horror franchises in the in-game store for around $20, and they both come with the usual suspects: ew Operators skins, weapon blueprints, emotes, etc.

Players will also be able to get their hands on a couple of items themed around the Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise without having to put down any cash or COD points at all if they follow some simple steps.

How to unlock the Texas Chainsaw Massacre emblem & calling card?

Unlocking these items is simple – you don’t have to do anything within the actual Modern Warfare or Warzone application to earn them. Instead, just get on their computer or mobile device, go to the film franchise’s main website and follow some easy steps in order to get a free emblem and calling card:

  1. Go to texaschainsaw.com
  2. Click the “Proceed” button that pops up near the bottom of the screen.
  3. After the images and text, enter your email where provided.
  4. Click submit.

If players want to get their hands on Texas Chainsaw Massacre-themed items, they’ll have to follow the steps below.

After that point, Activision will send you a code for the emblem and calling card within two weeks. It is interesting to note, however, that the fine print on the website says it’ll be available in-game after November 9, 2020, which would technically be three weeks from the announcement, so it’s unknown what the case actually is.

We also don’t technically have a peek at either the calling card or emblem, so it’s anyone’s best guess as to what it actually looks like in-game. More than likely, it’ll be similar to the image seen on the site – but that’s pure speculation at this point.

We’ll update this article with more details and images when they become available.
