With 2019 now in full swing, it’s almost time for the CWL Pro League to get underway, starting with deciding what the pools will be for the Pro league Qualifiers. 

The CWL Pro League will begin on February 4 and will feature 16 of the best Call of Duty teams facing off in the newly-reformed league.

Four teams – OpTic Gaming, eUnited, Splyce, and Luminosity Gaming – have already locked in spots based on their performance at CWL Vegas, but there are still 12 spots left to be decided.

Those 12 spots will be decided during the Pro League Qualifiers between the other 28 teams who placed in the Top 32 at CWL Vegas.

The CWL held an official livestream to sort the 28 teams into their respective pools ahead of the Qualifiers that are set to kick off on January 16.

The Qualifiers will feature four pools of seven teams, with the top two teams from each pool automatically qualifying for the Pro League while the bottom two teams from each pool are eliminated.

The other three teams from each pool will then move to a double-elimination playoff to decide the final four spots in the Pro League.

The Pro League Qualifiers will officially begin on January 16 and will run until January 20.

Modern Warfare & Warzone Oct 28 update nerfs JAK-12 shotgun: patch notes

A new Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone patch, deployed on October 28, nerfs Season 6’s JAK-12 shotgun while addressing a few bugged issues across Verdansk and multiplayer playlists.

The R9-0 shotgun with Dragon’s Breath rounds may be the most popular shottie in Call of Duty right now, following nerfs to the Origin-12, but it’s not the one Infinity Ward is most concerned with fixing. Instead, the developers have tuned the JAK-12, explicitly addressing two of its attachments: the Drum Mags and FRAG-12 Ammo.

While players, and particularly Warzone fans, may feel that the R9-0 is the hefty close-quarters gun most worthy of adjustments, Infinity Ward have gotten ahead of the curve and looked to fix its recent peer. The two nerfs to the JAK-12 contrastingly impact its mobility when stocked with a drum and its firing rate when stocked with the somewhat-recently buffed shotgun slugs.

Elsewhere, the developers have made some changes to playlists due to bugs and fixed some exploits. Unfortunately, Shipment still remains off of the menu.

In Season 6, Infinity Ward buffed shotgun slugs so that they would feel more accurate and register hits at further ranges. This, coupled with the surprising efficiency of the JAK-12’s drums, likely prompted the nerfs to both sorts of ammunition attachments. But, with 8-R Dragon’s Breath rounds still available, the gun hasn’t been rendered unusable.

As for the other adjustments made with this patch, they mostly surround smaller bugs and exploits. In Verdansk, a Warzone bunker has been reopened, a Zombie Royale exploit has been fixed, and Durable Gas Masks have been removed (but they were already very rare anyway). In multiplayer, the pumpkin heads are back in action while Snipers Only (TDM) has been removed from the playlist due to a bug, with Gunfight – Snipers Only (3v3) taking its place.

October 28 full patch notes


  • JAK-12:
    • Reduced movement and ADS speed on JAK-12 Drum Mags
    • Reduced rate of fire on JAK-12 FRAG-12 ammo
    • Updating the JAK-12 FRAG-12 ammo description to say ‘slugs’


  • Fix for an issue where the code for Bunker 3 wasn’t functioning as intended
  • Fix for an issue with the Riot Shield that would only occur when players obtained the pumpkin head after getting 3+ kills (pumpkin heads are back on!)
  • Fix for an exploit in Zombie Royale
  • Temporarily removing the Durable Gas Masks from Warzone
  • Removing Snipers Only (TDM) while we fix a bug. We’ll be replacing this mode with Gunfight – Snipers Only (3v3)
