The new OpTic line-up is still looking for a big result after breaking up the most successful roster in Call of Duty history. UNILAD stopped them at the top-six at CWL Anaheim, and now they’ve eliminated OpTic in the very first round of the Stage 2 Playoffs for a 7th/8th
finish.

UNILAD came out swinging in the opening map, a Valkyrie Hardpoint on which the European team out-slayed one of the most formidable slaying squads in Call of Duty, taking a 250-191 to open the series in their favor.

Losing respawn modes has proven dangerous for an OpTic Gaming that has looked weaker on Search and Destroy, and that vulnerability bore out once again here as UNILAD were able to claim Sainte Marie du Mont 6-4 to reach match point.

Relying on a reverse sweep is a precarious position for a team that’s struggled in Search and Destroy, but UNILAD didn’t even let OpTic get that far. A 2-1 capture the flag on Flak Tower sealed the deal for the Europeans, advancing them to next round of the lower bracket and eliminating OpTic Gaming from the event.

Call of Duty’s best pro players will be joining the top Warzone challengers and some of the biggest streamers in the ‘Cracked Creators’ event. 16 “cracked” players will be thrown into the mix alongside 16 content creators with $10,000 on the line.

While no specific start time has been made public just yet, we know when the next big Warzone event will be kicking off. Expect to see your favorite personalities competing on Wednesday, October 21.

Given the unique format with this event, there’s a good chance it runs for quite a while. So expect a good few hours of action once it gets going. We’ve embedded the BoomTV stream below so you can catch the event as it goes live.

Rather than having players form their own teams for this event, things will be a little different. 16 “cracked” players will each be picked by 16 content creators to form every duo for the tournament.

This means that almost every duo could be playing together for the very first time as streamers choose their partners from the list of professionals. Once all duos are together, they’ll be paired up to square off in typical Quads action.

The exact point system is yet to be revealed, though the event will likely follow a familiar structure; eliminations will rack up points as will overall wins. The duo with more points at the end of each round will move on in the tournament bracket.
