Rumors are circulating that the first official 5v5 Call of Duty tournament has been cancelled. 

The PlayStation Masters is set to take place at the EGX convention in Berlin, Germany on Friday, September 28. The tournament is a four team invitational, played on Black Ops 4, with teams consisting of five members instead of four. 

However, a tweet from a German Call of Duty player named WJuleez suggests that the event may have been cancelled. 


There has been no official announcement from PlayStation regarding the status of the event, and the reasons as to why the Masters would be cancelled are unknown.

PlayStation have previously run events like this prior to the release of the newest title in the Call of Duty franchise to help build hype for the game’s release. 

Call of Duty fans have been eagerly anticipating the PlayStation Masters as it will provide an opportunity for followers of the console esport to take a first look at the 5 vs 5 esports gameplay, which is rumored to be the competitive format heading into Black Ops 4.

While there has been no official announcement that Call of Duty esports will be played 5v5, fans looked to the PlayStation Masters event as a hint of what is to come. With less than two weeks until the event is set to kick off, it will be interesting to see if Sony moves to squash the rumors, or if the event will indeed be cancelled.

How to view your Black Ops Cold War stats on PC, PS5 & Xbox

Call of Duty is enjoyed by some of the most competitive gamers around and, of course, competitors want to analyze their performances. Fortunately, there are multiple ways to view your Black Ops Cold War stats, no matter your system of choice.

If you played Modern Warfare or Warzone, then chances are that you’re already somewhat familiar with checking your CoD statistics. Aside from the in-game client, using the website COD Tracker was a very popular way to check, and compare, your numbers when away from your console or PC.

That remains an option for Black Ops Cold War in 2020 and beyond, but players can also check their stats in-game and on the official Call of Duty app. Each method has its own advantages and disadvantages, but they all help you paint a clearer picture of your performance.

Whether you simply want to track your progress as a player or compare yourself to the game’s best, we’ve broken the two ways, outside of the in-game client, that you can check your Black Ops Cold War statistics.

COD Tracker

COD Tracker gives you an overview of your stats with the options to dive deeper.

COD Tracker’s offering is likely the most thorough option around, as you are able to track a ton of statistics, filter by mode, map, and weapon while comparing yourself to global leaderboards. 

Like Warzone, you can even go back through many of your recent matches to analyze individual performances.

  1. Head to COD Tracker and enter either your Activision ID or your system’s gamer tag
  2. Navigate to the Black Ops Cold War tag
  3. Check out how you stack up against the competition

Call of Duty Companion

The CoD Companion App is a nice alternative for people looking to check numbers on their phone.

The Call of Duty Companion app is a very easy way to access many of your statistics without turning on your PC or console. While it doesn’t have as much data as COD Tracker might give you (and rounds K/D a decimal sooner than Tracker), the UI is very intuitive, with pie charts and line graphs for your numbers and whatnot.

  1. Search “Call of Duty Companion” on your device’s app store or through their website
  2. Download and open
  3. Sign in with your Activision ID or your system’s gamer tag
  4. Navigate to “Player,” then scroll to “Black Ops Cold War” instead of “Modern Warfare” from the drop-down menu

While BOCW’s in-game client may feel somewhat limited in its options for analyzing your performance and place on the leaderboards, these two options each provide a ton of information.

Both provide similar degrees of data with the principal differences coming in their presentation, so it’s really up to you which you prefer to use.
