The Toronto Home Series has now wrapped up, with hosts Toronto Ultra claiming victory and defending their homestand! Check out our full CDL Toronto recap for the final placements, Grand Final highlights, and more.

The end of the CDL 2020 regular season is finally upon us, as the Toronto Home Series is the final tournament before the Playoffs and Championships kick off in August.

A lot of eyes are on this event, not just because it’s the final chance for teams to improve their seeding for the postseason, but also because the league’s top-four teams are all competing.

Alongside the hosts, Ultra, also participating are Atlanta FaZe, Chicago Huntsmen, Dallas Empire, Florida Mutineers, Minnesota ROKKR, OpTic Gaming Los Angeles, and Seattle Surge.

Format & rules

Within two pre-determined groups of four, the eight competing teams play a double-elimination bracket to determine who gets to advance to the all-important semifinals

Once the group stage is over, the single-elimination playoff bracket begins, with the winner of Group A facing the second-place team from Group B in the semis, and vice-versa.

As per usual, there’s a $100,000 prize pool for this Home Series, but perhaps more importantly, a solid chunk of CDL Points are on the line as well. Each win is worth 10 points, with an additional 10 going to the champions, which means that they’ll end up earning the maximum 50.

  • 1st – 50 CDL Points + $50,000
  • 2nd – 30 CDL Points + $30,000
  • 3rd/4th – 20 CDL Points + $10,000
  • 5th/6th – 10 CDL Points
  • 7th/8th – 0 CDL Points

Teams & Rosters

The current 2020 CDL standings heading into the Toronto Home Series.

As mentioned above, the current top-four teams in the 2020 standings are all competing at CDL Toronto, making this one of the most star-studded events of the season.

Seeing as how this is the final Home Series before the postseason kicks off, and the fact that it’s such a short turnaround from CDL London, no roster changes are expected to have been made in the leadup to this tournament.

Still, in addition to all the huge names that will be front and center, we also do get to see OpTic Gaming LA’s new-look lineup in action for the second-straight week, after their rookies Drazah and Hollow had bright flashes last weekend.

Call of Duty

Another Warzone streamer shows hacks live on Twitch stream

Like clockwork, another Call of Duty: Warzone streamer has exposed their in-game cheats while playing live on Twitch. And this time, the cheater did not take kindly to chat quickly trashing him.

Hackers have been the biggest issue in Warzone; with cross-play enabled between PC and console players for the first time, the CoD fanbase has been exposed to even greater levels of cheating than ever before.

Going by ‘festation’ on Twitch, yet another streamer has outed themselves as a cheater on the platform by displaying their hacks while broadcasting live. In this case, they were quickly called out on Twitter and in the chat, leading to deleted clips and a switch to Black Ops 4 gameplay.

With Twitch chat flaming him for being bad at Modern Warfare and Warzone even with hacks activated, festation proceeded to let them know that he is elite on Black Ops 4 and challenged them to 1v1 matches. He then switched over to the earlier CoD title, but not before his hacks were clipped and shipped across the internet.

As shown in the clip, downloaded before its inevitable deletion on Twitch, festation is rolling around Verdansk while knowing precisely where every single opponent is on the map. He can see players, color-coded based on their health, with a structural indication of their character model’s movement through walls.

Similarly, he also has indicators for guns, cash, and armor found throughout the map. Unfortunately for him, that sort of unfair game awareness doesn’t equate to the IQ that matters, as he is easily blown up by a Cluster Strike at one point.

This is likely why Twitch chat laid into him even more, as fans typically shame hackers for remaining inferior at the game even when gaining an unfair advantage. 

Part of the reason why he gained a decent amount of viewers on Twitch was likely because of getting exposed on Twitter. Concerned fans of the battle royale went so far as to reply to a random TimTheTatMan tweet to try and bring attention to the blatant hacking.

In response, new viewers could enjoy seeing the cheater switch over to BO4 and continue to struggle while throwing out challenges to his detractors in chat: “Get on Black Ops 4, watch me smack any of you on Hardpoint.”

This is far from the first time a streamer has been exposed for cheating. In the past, one accidentally displayed his hacks while another purposefully tried to show his off. As of yet, neither Infinity Ward nor Twitch appear to have banned festation, but repercussions seem likely following this exposure.
