The Call of Duty Championships are right around the corner, learn how and when to watch CoD Champs 2018.

The 2018 CoD Championship features the 32 best teams in the world competing for $1,500,000 and will be available on multiple streaming services and platforms.

When will the Call of Duty Championships start?

CoD Champs will start on August 15 at 9:00 AM PDT with four matches from Groups A and B.

The matches are then scheduled to start in groups of four every hour and a half until the final matches of the day at 4:30 PM PDT.

The Call of Duty Championships will follow the same schedule for August 16, starting at 9:00 AM and the final group of matches will start at 4:30 PM PDT.

The Champs playoff bracket will start on August 17 at 9:00 AM PDT and continue on August 18 with the same start time.

Finally, Championship Sunday will be August 19 and the stream will start at 9:00 AM PDT. The Call of Duty Championship Grand Finals are scheduled to start at 1:30 PM PDT, August 19.

All stream times are tentative for CoD Champs and largely depend on the length of the preceding match.

Where to Watch the 2018 Call of Duty Championships

CoD Champs will be streaming live on and on the MLG app.

You can also watch Champs on Twitch through the official Call of Duty Channel.

Both platforms will have multiple streams, known as Alpha, Bravo, Charlie and Delta. The main broadcast on MLG and Twitch is known as Alpha and tends to feature the more popular Call of Duty teams.

Since the Call of Duty Championships will have four matches going on simultaneously, your favorite team may appear on the Bravo, Charlie or Delta streams.

Finally, the Call of Duty: World War II in-game Theater will also be streaming the 2018 Call of Duty Championship. Sledgehammer Games has offered Armory Credits for watching Theater content in the past. It can be accessed by going into the Headquarters mode in multiplayer.

Those who want to catch the action in person can travel to the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio for the bracket portion of CoD Champs on August 17. A ticket will be required for entrance to the arena and can be purchased at the MLG Store. The Group Stage matches on August 15 and 16 take place at a different venue and are closed to the public, but will be streamed live.

Black Ops Cold War Season 1 teaser all but confirms Rebirth Island map

During the announcement that Black Ops Cold War Season 1 and it’s subsequent Warzone integration would be slightly delayed by six days, the developers released a teaser image that all but confirms that the new map will involve Rebirth Island.

Earlier today, the CoD community was taken aback by the fact that the first post-launch content season for Black Ops Cold War had been officially delayed by six days.

While the delay isn’t long by any stretch of the imagination, many fans have been eager for more content, including the integration with Warzone, which so far we didn’t have many official details on.

But during the news, Treyarch dropped a teaser image for the season which at first glance might not show off much but if you look closely pretty much confirms all of the leaks that have come out over the last month or so.

Rebirth Island was originally teased in the Season 1 roadmap for Black Ops Cold War.

At the top of the teaser image, which says that Season 1 is coming on December 16, fans can see that a few phrases in red blurred out in varying degrees. Upping the brightness of the image in Photoshop reveals a few cool, interesting details.

The first is a set of coordinates at the very top of the image. Inputting that latitude and longitude into Google Maps will take you to the real-life Vozrozhdeniya Island in Uzbekistan, otherwise known as Rebirth Island. Beyond that, the phrase “Rebirth Island” can actually be seen in the image as well.

While both of these can be seen normally in the base image, they are way easier to see after it’s been brightened.

Brighting the teaser image in Photoshop reveals coordinates for the real-life Rebirth Island.

This all but confirms the leaks that Rebirth Island will be coming to the game when the integration happens and given the fact that the developers have already confirmed a new map for the season, it’s almost certainly this one.

As with with any other rumor or speculation, take this with a grain of salt, however, fans will likely be getting their first look at Rebirth Island sometime within the next week or two so keep an eye out for that.

Until then, keep it locked to Dexerto for more about Black Ops Cold War and Warzone.
