With the regular season of the CWL Pro League now wrapped up, it’s time to decide which professional Call of Duty team stands above all others at the CWL Finals in Miami, Florida.

CWL Finals is the fifth major Call of Duty tournament to take place in the 2019 season, and it is split into two parts – a $1.25 million Playoffs for the CWL Pro League, and the final $150,000 amateur open bracket tournament of the Black Ops 4 season. 

It’s also the last opportunity for teams to qualify for CWL Championships, with the top 16 teams from the amateur bracket guaranteed a spot at the $2 million tournament. 

Additionally, prior to the start of the Playoffs, the eight Pro League teams that failed to qualify via the regular season will compete in a Play-In, from which two more teams will be added to the postseason pool. 

mlg100 Thieves reigned supreme at CWL Anaheim.

CWL Finals Playoff Bracket

CWLThe CWL Finals Playoff bracket is stacked with some top teams.

The Pro League Playoffs at CWL Finals features 10 teams that competed in this year’s professional circuit – the top four of both Divisions, and two more that qualified via that Play-In tournament. 

OpTic Gaming and eUnited both secured top spot in Division A and B respectively, with FaZe Clan, 100 Thieves, Gen.G, Splyce, Team Reciprocity, and Team Heretics also qualifying directly.

The Playoff bracket itself is of the double-elimination variety, with Reciprocity and Heretics forced to play an extra match against the Play-In winners after finishing the Pro League as the fourth seeds.

CWL Finals Play-In

The Play-In bracket was comprised of the eight teams that finished in the bottom four spots of either Division during the Pro League regular season, meaning that they did not qualify for the Playoffs directly.

Only two Playoff spots were on offer from this stacked bracket, with teams such as Envy and Luminosity Gaming viewed as favorites to clinch those spots. Unlike most tournaments, this bracket was single elimination, meaning there was no room for error.

Once the dust of the tournament settled, the final two teams remaining were Luminosity Gaming and Evil Geniuses, who advanced to join the rest of the pack in the $1.25 million Playoffs.

You can check out a recap of the Play-In HERE

CWLLG and EG were the last two standing from the Play-In tournament.

CWL Finals – Amateur Finals bracket

CWL Finals will also play host to the Amateur Finals – the final amateur open bracket tournament of the season. The competition features a whopping $150,000 prize pool and, more importantly, 16 spots to the upcoming CWL Championship in August.

All of the open bracket action will be livestreamed on a special Twitch channel, which we have included below. You can keep up with the entire bracket itself by clicking the link above.

First look at leaked Black Ops Cold War Season 1 maps & Operators

Everything from new maps to incoming Operators and plenty more has all spilled out early, with new Black Ops Cold War leaks revealing a bunch of content coming with the Season 1 update.

We’re still a few days out from the arrival of Season 1, though new Black Ops Cold War leaks are coming through almost every day. From classic modes making a return, to unique in-game events on the horizon, we’ve already got a decent idea of what to expect.

However, things haven’t stopped there. The latest set of datamined content has uncovered our first-look at Season 1 maps, Operators, and more. While the names of incoming maps may have been revealed a while back, we now have a proper look at all four additions coming soon.

Additionally, there’s also a unique Season 1 Starter pack that comes boasting some exclusive rewards. Here’s a rundown on everything we now know thanks to the latest leaks.

First look at Black Ops Cold War Season 1 maps

Up first, we’ve got a quick look at four new locations coming in Season 1. They’re bite-sized pictures that simply reveal the theme of each new map. The first appears to be some kind of game show set as camera equipment and bright signs can be spotted throughout.

Next up looks to be a darker map, perhaps something underground or even a subway system given the briefcases nearby. It may have been an evacuation site. Only time will tell for this one.

The third map pictured seems to be a wide-open locale with some kind of rocket in the center. Maybe a testing facility or a fully-fledged launch site somewhere in the United States.

Last but not least, we have a simple map that looks to feature some amount of office space, shelving, and a patriotic statue of sorts. If earlier intel holds up, one of these new locations will be a fresh Zombies experience. The first appears to be confirmed for Gunfight only, meaning a close-quarters design for 2v2 combat. While the remaining two maps are for core multiplayer game modes.

It’s worth noting that not all of these are confirmed to be launching on day one. While the major update is set to introduce a ton of this new content, some of these maps could be drip-fed throughout the season to keep players coming back. 

First look at Black Ops Cold War Season 1 Operator Skins

What would a new Season in Call of Duty be without some fresh cosmetics? A few of your favorite Operators appear to be getting some new outfits in Season 1. First up is Woods with a new winter look, rocking some snow goggles, thick gloves, a beanie, and a coat.

Next is Sims who has a more casual look this time around. Rather than dressing the part for a mission, he’s wearing a simple top with some cool shades and a hat.

Last but not least is some love for the Warsaw Pact. Portnova has a new skin this Season with a vibrant red top and a matching beret.

Also part of the leaks is an entirely new skin that could be the level 100 unlock in the Season 1 Battle Pass.

This Operator comes equipped for battle with multiple grenades and ammunition pouches on his upper body. Not to mention an imposing mask to cover his presumably scarred face.

Another new Operator wears a gas mask, only has one eye, and could not be more intimidating in an all-black outfit. 

These come alongside a previously leaked Operator skin for Adler. There’s no way of telling how to unlock these items; some might be tied to the Battle Pass, while others could be acquired through challenges like their current variants.
