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.

Black Ops Cold War is still a few weeks away from launch, though an early leak appears to have confirmed all 21 Scorestreaks that will be available from day one.

Killstreaks and Scorestreaks have been a staple of the Call of Duty franchise for many years now. Black Ops Cold War is sticking to the formula with a few unique changes, though there might be more streaks to unlock than ever before. 

Treyarch’s next release is set to drop on November 13 though major leaks are already starting to slip through the cracks. We got our first look at a list of Scorestreaks through the game’s early access Alpha and Beta tests. However, that was barely scratching the surface if the new intel holds true.

Black Ops Cold War is set to boast 21 unique streaks at launch. All of which can be earned across multiple lives so long as you’re adding to your total score by tallying kills and completing objectives. While we can’t include the leaked image as to avoid DMCAs, here’s a rundown on each and every streak.

The early access Alpha gave us a look at just a few Black Ops Cold War Scorestreaks.

First up, the cheapest streak in the game appears to be the Incendiary Bow. Just like the War Machine available in the Beta, this will be an equippable weapon to deal extraordinary damage. Next up are a few familiar inclusions on the cheaper side of things. The RC-XD, Spy Plane, Counter Spy Plane, and Care Package are all to be expected. Though one new streak stands out.

At 700 points, players will seemingly be able to equip some armor just like in Warzone. The icon displays a bulletproof vest, so additional health could be on the menu in the core multiplayer experience

The Flamethrower is another fresh addition that we haven’t seen yet, while the Death Machine is reportedly also making a return. As we scale up to the more expensive streaks, a Hand Cannon is available for 2250 points. There’s no telling just how this one might work, though it could provide a One In The Chamber style buff.

At the very end of the list is the expected AI and pilotable Scorestreaks. You’ve got the Attack Helicopter and Chopper Gunner alongside a VTOL Escort and the Gunship to round things out. You’ll need to go on an absolute tear to unlock the final streak, however, as it’s placed at 10,000 points.

Below is a complete list of all Scorestreaks coming to Black Ops Cold War.

All 21 Scorestreaks in Black Ops Cold War

  • Incendiary Bow – 500
  • RC-XD – 600

  • Attack Helicopter – 4,000

Outside of AI-controlled air support, there will be a few pilotable streaks as usual in Black Ops Cold War.

Obviously, it’s worth taking this information with a grain of salt for now. There’s a good chance this information comes from an earlier build of the game. Some Streaks may have been removed or significantly changed already. 

Be sure to keep your eyes peeled over the coming days, however. If early copies of the game are already out in the wild, more leaks will likely be on the way.
