Having only just won FaZe Swagg’s Summer Warzone Invitational 24 hours prior, the duo of Aydan & MuTeX came in with nothing but confidence. After just one map, however, they soon landed in hot water. They were narrowly knocked out in the first round of the upper bracket before losing to Karma & ScummN to end their tournament run. While a few marquee names were able to push further into the event, many of the most popular duos fell to a similar fate and found themselves eliminated early..

The grand finals saw Jukeyz & YKTDeleo squaring off against Mvriiooo & zSmittyTV. While the newcomers were close to sealing the deal and causing the upset over Jukeyz and his duo, the second map didn’t go in their favor. Both teams survived through to the final 30 players but Mvriiooo & zSmittyTV were the first to go down.

Format, rules, prize breakdown

This is a 16-team, double-elimination Duos tournament using the ‘kill-race’ format that takes place in public matches. The teams matched up against each other in each round of the bracket must queue into a Quads match together, meaning that while they’re technically teammates in-game, they’re opponents for the purposes of the competition.

In the Winners Bracket, matches are two games each, with the duo that gets the more eliminations through both games advancing. The same concept applies for the Losers Bracket, except those matches are only a single game.

The winners of the Winners Bracket and Losers Bracket then meet in the Grand Final, but the latter needs to win two separate matches (four games total) to be crowned champions, while the former needs only one.

In case of any ties, one additional game is played where the first duo to hit 10 kills is the winner, and if no one manages to get that many, the team that ends up with the more eliminations advances.

Infinity WardIt remains to be seen if and how much the current FR 5.56 bug will affect TeeP’s Trials Warzone tournament.

There’s also this major rule in case Jailbreak in-game event occurs:

If a duo is fully eliminated and have no Gulag attempts left and the in-game event “Jailbreak” occurs. Upon re-deploying because of this event, the duo who was fully eliminated before this event was initiated in-game must immediately eliminate themselves. Players that have been re-deployed because of this CANNOT float around in their parachutes or accumulate or attempt to accumulate further eliminations. Doing so may result in a forfeit. Any eliminations accumulated by the eliminated team will not count.

To eliminate yourself upon re-deploy due to “Jailbreak” being activated, open your parachute and immediate cut the cord to your parachute. Doing this will cause your character to fall straight to the ground and eliminate yourself.

As for the prize breakdown, the $15,000 prize pool will be split between the top-four placing teams, with the winner receiving a whopping $7,000!

  • 1st Place: $7,000
  • 2nd Place: $5,000
  • 3rd Place: $2,000
  • 4th Place: $1,000

Treyarch is trolling Black Ops Cold War leakers in the best way possible

Leakers are a godsend for players, but they can be a nuisance for developers. Treyarch has taken matters into their own hands and trolled Black Ops Cold War leakers with an absolute classic.

Leakers are the dark knights of the gaming world. They’re the heroes we need but don’t deserve, and the watchful lurkers and not-so-silent explorers of our favorite game’s data, including Black Ops Cold War.

But while their efforts are a godsend to players, they’re a nuisance to the developers who work hard to create and update the games we all love to play.

Still, there’s nothing developers can do about it, and that’s fine. They’re certainly not complaining. But in a game of cat and mouse, sometimes the cats like to play with their prey, and that’s exactly what Treyarch did.

Data miners and leakers found some interesting tidbits hidden in the Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War executable file. It had a series of odd-looking links that lead people straight to Rick Astley’s infamous “Never Gonna Give You Up” music video on YouTube.

That’s right, folks. Treyarch rickrolled them all.

Treyarch’s rickroll is a classic

Rickrolling is one of the oldest internet pranks and memes. Simply put, it happens when someone sends out a masked link that tricks people into seeing the video of the hilarious and catchy eighties jam.

Treyarch ‘disguised’ some of the most popular configs, like god mode and what Season 1 could look like in a “test.txt” file. It might be nothing more than simple bait and switch, but it sure is effective, and the reactions are priceless. 

Black Ops Cold War Beta

Black Ops Cold War is currently in crossplay open beta, and it’s an absolute blast.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War has been subject to a number of massive leaks. They revealed a workaround to the dropshotting nerf, as well as every map that would be included in the beta.

It goes without saying that we owe leakers a lot for their hard work, and it’s not like they’re breaking any rules. But it’s nice to see developers like Treyarch hit back once in a while, and it’s even better when they’re good sports about it.
