The prize pool for the 2019 Call of Duty World League Championship has been revealed and it’s easily the biggest in the esport’s history. 

The prize money to be split among the 32 qualifying teams will be set at a whopping $2 million, $500K more than that of the 2018 CWL Championship.

This is part of the record-breaking $6 million overall prize pool for the entire 2018-19 CWL season, which includes four $250,000 open events, the $710,000 CWL Pro League, and several amateur events that have a combined $375,000 prize pool.

The $2 million prize pool for Champs was confirmed by MLG’s Adam Apicella, who tweeted it in passing while having a discussion about the competitive season on Twitter.

It’s not clear whether he meant to reveal this information or not, as it had not been officially announced previously, but many suspected that the total was always going to be a massive figure. 

The discussion Adam was having on Twitter was directed at those who were complaining about the competitive structure of this CWL season, although it would appear to be the most balanced it’s ever been.

He was making the point that teams who do not make it to the Pro League are not devoid of opportunities to make some serious moves in competitive CoD, citing the lucrative Amateur Circtuit, amateur open events, and the chance to qualify for the $2 million Champs.

Although the specific dates have not been announced, the 2019 CWL Champs is set to take place in August of this year and will be the biggest and final event of the Black Ops 4 season. 

32 teams from around the world will be featured at the event; 16 will automatically qualify for the tournament by making it into the CWL Pro League while 16 amateur teams will make it via the Amateur Circuit.

Last year’s champions, the Evil Geniuses roster that is currently with Team Envy, have qualified for the Pro League and will be guaranteed a chance at defending their ultimate title.

Black Ops Cold War Beta players on consoles can finally change their field of view settings thanks to a welcome addition by Treyarch. Here’s everything you need to know about the new options, including what the best setting is.

Field of view options for consoles is something that fans have been asking for for a long time. Whenever a new CoD game releases, there’s always a section of PlayStation and Xbox players wondering why the option hasn’t been made available for them. It’s equally frustrating considering that the PC version of every iteration has had the options available on day one.

This is all changing with Black Ops Cold War, however, as Treyarch has confirmed that players on consoles will finally be able to adjust their field of view. For people unfamiliar with the options, this might be a bit confusing. Taking advantage of these settings, however, might end up helping your game.

What is field of view?

At its most basic form, field of view is how much of the game you see on your screen. A lower FOV means you’ll see less, while a higher field of view means you’ll see more.

While some people might immediately say that a high field of view is automatically better, it’s important to note that the higher the field of view, the more distorted your screen will look and the smaller objects will look at a distance.

Generally speaking, you’ll want to balance you’re field of view with what your comfortable looking at.

How do I adjust my FOV settings?

In the beta, finding the FOV slider is relatively simple but in case you don’t know, here’s a quick and simple guide to figure it out.

  1. In your Black Ops Cold War Beta application, press the buttons for “Settings”
  2. Tab over to the “Graphics” options
  3. Scroll down until you see “Field of View”
  4. Adjust the slider from left to right to set to your desired setting.

What’s the ideal field of view setting?

If you’ve never played with a modified field of view before, it might be best to take things slow. Working your way up will allow you to adjust to the higher FOV so that you’re not thrown into the deep in, so to speak.

In order to have a high FOV, while making sure that you can still see enemies, it’s recommended to keep your adjusted setting at 100. While you can certainly push it all the way up to 120, the former will allow you to experience the changes without it being too difficult to see things at a distance.
