The Call of Duty World League has announced new details regarding the All-Star Match that is due to take place during the upcoming CWL Anaheim event.

Fans will now know the exact dates for when they can vote for the pro players they would like to see compete against each other in an exhibition style match.

However, not every single player in the CWL will be eligible to be participate. Only players from the top four teams in each of the Pro League Divisions after two weeks of play can be voted for.

Furthermore, each of the top four teams will have exactly one player representing them. This means the All-Star Match will feature four players from each of the top four Division A teams playing against four players from the top four Division B teams.

Voting for the Division A All-Star players will last from May 25th-28th, and the vote for Division B players will be held from June 8th-11th. 

The format for the All-Star Game will be a 4v4 Pro-Mod Search and Destroy, meaning that each team will have to use at least one assault rifle, one sub-machine gun, and one sniper rifle.

The match is set to take place at a time yet to-be-determined on Saturday, June 16th, which would be the second day of CWL Anaheim. 

This exhibition event will go towards promoting the Call of Duty Endowment, which is a nonprofit organization supported by Activision Blizzard that ‘identifies and funds the most efficient and effective organizations that get unemployed veterans back to work.

The full announcement regarding the CWL All-Star Match can be viewed below, or on the CoDCompetitive Reddit page.

Hi all,
With CWL Anaheim coming up in a little under a month, we wanted to give a quick update on the Call of Duty Endowment CWL All-Star game.

Who’s playing?
After the second week of matches in each Division, the top four teams in the standings from Division A and B will each have one player represent them in the All-Star game. These players will be fan-voted via Twitter polls from the @CODWorldLeague Twitter account. The four players voted in from Division A will play against the four players voted in from Division B.

When is voting live?
Division A polls will be live this Friday until Monday (May 25-28); Division B polls will be live June 8-11.

When will the All-Star game take place?
Saturday, June 16. Exact timing TBD.

What mode will be played?
Pro-Mod S&D. All items in game will be allowed.

What is the Call of Duty Endowment?
The Call of Duty Endowment is the official charity of the CWL. The Call of Duty Endowment aims to help combat veteran unemployment by helping veterans find high-quality jobs after their service. You can learn more about the important work the Call of Duty Endowment does by going here.

Thanks all, can’t to see some of you at Anaheim!

OpTic Envoy’s AK74u Black Ops Cold War loadout ahead of CDL launch

The competitive Call of Duty season is almost upon us, with the CDL launching on January 23, and Envoy’s AK74u could prove one of the most important in getting OpTic Chicago some all-important championship wins.

The AK74u is the go-to SMG for all competitive Black Ops Cold War players. While the MP5 was the main one when the game first dropped, a subsequent nerf saw the 74u take top spot and maintain it ever since.

While Envoy’s original loadout back in November was impressive, this one is a complete change-up, and seems to be the meta build for most top pros who run it.

Taking to Nuketown ‘84 for a 1v1 against teammate FormaL, both were using the AK74u — and it absolutely shreds.

The AK74u is the best-in-class SMG.

As mentioned, this looks to be the meta build for most pros, but Envoy is by far one of the most impressive SMG players in the Call of Duty League, so it definitely looks great in his hands.

Here’s the attachments Envoy uses on the gun:

  • Muzzle: Muzzle Brake 5.45
  • Barrel: 9.3” Extended
  • Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Speedgrip
  • Stock: KGB Skeletal Stock
  • Handle: GRU Elastic Wrap

Attachments at 8:40

If you’re looking to maximize your abilities with an SMG in hand, Envoy is one of the best people to look at, and with the launch of League Play in BOCW seemingly imminent, now’s the perfect time to get used to this build.

This may look slightly different from what you see in public matches, with certain attachments banned or not viable in a competitive space, so it’s well worth familiarizing yourself with.

Whether or not this remains the meta throughout the year isn’t yet known; we expect a number of weapon balancing changes throughout the year, but how this affects the 74u isn’t clear.
