An error made in the published schedule of the upcoming $250,000 CWL Vegas major tournament has created some confusion in the competitive Call of Duty scene.

According to the official schedule put out by the CWL on November 27, day one of the tournament would feature a Pool C battle between Team Envy and a squad featuring Joshh, MadCat, Dqvee, Alexx, and Peatie, who do not yet officially have an organization to represent.

However, the schedule listed the match as between Envy and Lightning Pandas, which immediately sparked rumors that the EU roster had signed with LP and the CWL had accidentally leaked the arrangement.

The Twitter account known for its affiliation with the infamous CoDBurner was predictably quick to jump in on the discussion, tweeting out a screenshot of the schedule before it would get revised.

“CWL has released their schedule for Vegas, did MadCat’s team get picked up by Lightning Pandas or is this a mistake?” he tweeted.

However, this was shot down almost immediately by Joshh, who replied to the tweet saying that schedule was incorrect and that they had not signed with Lightning Pandas.

While people will have to take Joshh’s word for it, there still remains the possibility that he is simply covering up for the CWL’s mistake and there may be an agreement in place after all. 

Signing with an org like LP wouldn’t be a stretch of the imagination by any means, especially considering that Joshh and co are one of the stronger sides that the EU scene has to offer, and have secured a spot in Pool Play at CWL Vegas thanks to their collective Pro Points from WWII.

MadCat and Joshh teamed together under Splyce in the latter half of the WWII season.

As for now, the squad heads into CWL Vegas without an official org, and will be matched up against fellow Pool C teams Envy and FaZe Clan, as well as a team from the play-in tournament and the Open Bracket.

CWL Vegas is scheduled to take place December 7-9 at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas, NV and will feature teams from all over the world vying for a share of the $250,000 prize pool and crucial Pro Points.

Activision has announced the second iteration of the CODE Bowl, which brings together high-profile esports players and members of the US and UK military esports teams to help raise money for the Call of Duty Endowment. Here’s what you need to know.

The Call of Duty Endowment has been raising money for veterans for a while now. The company, which was started in 2009, helps veterans find jobs after their deployment. In 2019, the owner of the company, Activision, held the first Modern Warfare CODE Bowl, which brought together major streamers and members of the US Army esports team.

Fast forward to December 2020 and Activision is continuing this tradition with two major changes: Black Ops Cold War is the name of the game this time around, and members of the UK military will also be participating. Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch the tournament.

Who’s participating?

Like last year’s tournament, the 2020 CODE Bowl will feature teams made up of famous streamers/pro-players, including Courage, LEGIQN, Huskerrs, Swagg, TeeP, Espresso, Vikkstar, Tommey, C9Emz, and Spratt. According to Activision, more will be announced in the near future.

Beyond that, however, those players will be joined by members of the US Air Force, Army, Navy, Marines, and Space Force, as well as members of the UK British Army, Royal Navy, and Royal Air Force.

In addition, each team will be coached by a “Call of Duty League professional” but the exact list of those people has yet to be announced.

Currently, it’s unknown how the teams will be split, but all in all, it should make for a pretty interesting dynamic.

How can I watch the 2020 CODE Bowl?

According to Activision, the 2020 CODE Bowl is set to take place on December 11, 2020, at 6:00 PM GMT. If you’re unsure about what time that is in your area, we’ve broken it down for you below:

  • 1 PM EST
  • 10 AM PST
  • 3 AM JST (Saturday, December 12, 2020)
  • 5 AM AEDT (Saturday, December 12, 2020)

In addition, the event will be streamed entirely on Call of Duty’s YouTube and Twitch channels. It’s currently unknown if the event is going to be streamed on the above players’ respective accounts, but one would imagine they would be. Embeds for each stream will be added once they become available.
