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.

Best Warzone kills against cheaters exploiting the Stim glitch

Taking matters into their own hands, some of Call of Duty: Warzone’s bravest players have, quite literally, gone out of their way to punish cheating exploiters who abuse the notorious Stim glitch.

As most Warzone fans have become familiar with by now, there is an unlimited Stim Shot glitch that pops into existence, gets patched out, and then returns every once in a while. The bug allows you to use an infinite amount of Stim Shots, enabling players to remain in the gas indefinitely and secure easy wins while those who play fairly die to the final circles.

Unfortunately, as time passes, more and more exploiters have become aware of the glitch and prone to abusing it. Fortunately, more and more players with competitive integrity have become aware of those exploiters and prone to exacting justice by punishing them.

While few things are more satisfying than a high-kill Warzone victory, one such thing is the cathartic sensation of a cheater being killed and therefore robbed of their illegitimate win. Highlighted by one of Warzone’s very best, Liam ‘Jukeyz’ James, here are the best kills against Stim glitch exploiters.

Unwilling to be denied their 100-kill victory, Jukeyz and his team got set up with self-revives, gas masks, and a UAV to go seek out and eliminate the exploiter in their lobby. Driving directly into the toxic gas, Jukeyz is able to hop out (as his driver is downed by the green cloud) and delete the prone cheater.

And Jukeyz isn’t alone in obliterating these exploiters. Reddit’s ‘thebigeasy31’ decimated the hubris of one such exploiter, who brashly thought they could start Stim glitching earlier in the game with a Most Wanted contact on his head. Instead, bigeasy gave him a bullet to the head.

And last, but certainly not least, Reddit’s ‘Millertime166’ took it upon themself to pull off a one-man vigilante act by seeking out a Stim glitcher on Rebirth Island. Heading into the gas, copping a Gas Mask, and getting into a vehicle, Millertime used their last remaining HP to kill off a silly cheater who was hidden behind a wall.

Wasn’t about to let a stim glitcher steal my squads W from CODWarzone

While the Stim glitch was supposed to have been removed during the January 13 patch, some believe it persists, albeit in a more limited fashion. Nevertheless, most expect it could possibly make a return at some point.

If it does come back, these players prove that the game’s developers are not the only ones who can counteract cheaters. Like those who killed off exploiters who were abusing the Promenade truck glitch, Verdansk’s finest have begun carrying out their own brand of justice.
