Warzone tournaments will feature the biggest stars on Twitch

The premiere of Call of Duty: Warzone, a battle royale set in the realities of the legendary FPS, took place on March 10, and the game has already become a hit. After a few days, it could boast of 15 million players, which can best testify to the scale of the success of this free production. It didn’t take long for the appearance of esports tournaments for this title.

Two of them will take place this week. Today, Code Green is scheduled to start for prizes from the $ 50,000 prize pool, with participants being primarily from North America’s well-known streamers, personalities and professional Call of Duty players. On March 20, tomorrow, there will be a tournament prepared by 100Thieves: Warzone from Home with a prize pool of $100,000 dollars.

Interestingly, these prizes will not go to the participants themselves, after all the organizers decided that half the amount will be allocated to the charity goal indicated by the winners, and the second part will be distributed among people watching the competition on the stream. Little is known about the list of participants at the moment, but the 100T CEO Matthew “Nadeshot” Haag announced that he will be taking part in the competition as well.

And what awaits us next week? Next Tuesday (although the name of the competition suggests Wednesday) there will also be the first competition from the #WarZoneWednesdays cycle organized by Daniel “KEEMSTAR” Keem, in which participation was already confirmed by Félix “xQc” Lengyel, Tyler “Ninja” Blevins, Jaryd “summit1g” Lazar and Ali “Myth” Kabbani. The stake will be worth $20,000. In turn, on March 25-26, the first CoD tournament will be held: Warzone at Twitch Rivals in three regions, including Europe.

On the first day, there will be solo struggles, and on the second day there will be a team tournament. At the moment no official list of participants has been presented, but intuition suggests that it will not lack the biggest stars on Twitch.

Call of Duty: Warzone was released on March 10 on personal computers and PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The game from the very beginning was completely free and used many solutions known from the last part of the series, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

More information about Warzone can be found at this address. However, it is worth remembering that if you do not have Modern Warfare, then you’ll need to download about 80-100 GB of data.

Call of Duty: Warzone, a free battle royale premieres today

Today, Battle Royale is a genre that every publisher wants to have in its portfolio. This type of competition can be found not only in Fortnite, PUBG or Apex Legends, but also in Battlefield and Counter-Strike. And even in Call of Duty — today CoD: Warzone, a variation on BR from Activision, will have its premiere.

Warzone will offer players two modes. The first is the classic battle royale, in which up to 150 players will compete on the server at once. The rules are simple, as in any BR, i.e. the player or squad who is the last to survive wins. And interrupting survival will include a constantly decreasing map space, which over time will be covered with deadly gas. The second type of gameplay, however, received the name Plunder and will consist of collecting money by eliminating opponents, performing contracts or simply collecting them on the map.

The struggle will take place in Verdansko, a fictitious city divided into several zones, among which we will find both urban and forest areas. Importantly, players will be able to move not only on their own legs, but also using vehicles such as ATV, SUV or even a helicopter. The creators also provide the option of crossplay, thanks to which players from different platforms will be able to meet each other on the server.

And last but not least, Call of Duty: Warzone will be completely free! The game will premiere today at 19:00 CET time, although Modern Warfare owners will start playing four hours earlier. However, those interested must reckon with the need to download approximately 83-101 GB of data. For people who have already purchased the latest installment of CoD and have it installed on their systems, it will only be 18-22 GB.

Patch 6.2 brings Team Deathmatch to PUBG

Season 6 is in full swing! The best hope the intensity and explosive gameplay of Karakin has you ready for our newest heart-pumping, non-stop action game mode — Team Deathmatch. PUBG LABS is also returning with the next iteration of the Skill-Based Rating test, with changes based on feedback received from the first test.

We’re making some much needed and often requested changes to throwables. Extra-attention has been paid to Frag Grenades, which will be seeing change reducing their overall strength.

The long-requested Team Deathmatch mode has now arrived! Intense 8v8 FPP fights on 7 different battlefields pulled from your favorite maps. TDM features classic PUBG gunplay and mechanics with all the fun and action of respawning back into the fight. The boost gauge functions differently in TDM and fills by scoring kills and assists, restoring your health after you haven’t received damage for 5 seconds.

The team with the most kills in 10 minutes, or the first to reach 50 kills wins the round, with 2 round wins securing the match victory.

Game mode overview:

  • 8 vs 8
  • FPP only
  • Weapon Spawn Kits
  • Respawns
  • No knockdowns
  • No friendly fire

Historically, when moving to the right around objects in PUBG (without peeking/leaning), much less of your character was shown than if you moved out to the left. This recently received increased visibility in the community, leading to players using this mechanic to their advantage more often, which has led to some frustration.

This mechanic is closely tied to the fundamental design of the PUBG gunplay system, making it difficult to resolve the issue completely without potential adverse changes to the feel of PUBG gunplay.

With that said, as we announced earlier this month in response to community concern, we’ll be making a change in this patch to reduce the advantage gained when peering at your opponent from the right side of objects, by exposing more of the player model.

A few weeks ago, we implemented a loot adjustment for Karakin based on player feedback. Since then we’ve been monitoring games to determine if any further adjustment needs to be made and a couple things have stood out to us. First, healing items are still a bit too hard to find for how frequently people are fighting. Second, Snipers and DMRs are really strong on Karakin.

We’re going to try an updated loot setting that will increase meds, while reducing bandages, SRs, DMRs, and the Win94. We know many of you prefer these guns on Karakin, but we feel that Karakin needs a little more risk for the reward of these weapons. To help mitigate this adjustment a bit, we’re adding the G36C and MP5K to Karakin as requested by many of you when Vikendi started its vacation. Also, we have adjusted the care package airplane speed to move faster across the island.

Of course, your feedback is essential here. Try out the new settings and let us know how everything feels. Is it worth it for you to spend more time searching to get that SLR? Do matches feel more competitive without as many long-range weapons? Let us know so we can continue to adjust.

Apex Legends fourth season trailer reveals more information about the new hero

In recent weeks, Respawn Entertainment has slowly revealed details about the latest, fourth season of Apex Legends. Before its start tomorrow, the game developers decided to present even more information about the latest update through a new note and trailer.

The biggest change, due to interference from Hammond Robotics, will be the edge of the world. In the central part of the map, in place of the former fuel depot, there will be a planetary excavator, which will be visible from any location due to the ray escaping from it. This appearance on the map will also lead to major changes on the Capitol, which was divided by a lava fault into two parts — west and east.

At the same time, the developers decided to reduce the penalty for falling into the gap — instead of immediate death, players will be slowly moved to the other side of the abyss, while receiving 25 points of damage. In addition, a research camp will appear on the map to take the place of the railway yard.

The trailer released today also revealed a hint of a secret when it comes to the skills of the new legend, Revenant — we can see in the announcement that not only is he able to climb higher buildings, but he can also turn into a specter and stun enemies with a throwing bullet.

Along with the changes on the map, Revenant, and previously discussed novelties in the ranking system, in the upcoming season players will also be waiting for a new sniper weapon, Sentinel, which will have special loading mechanics, allowing both short series and charged mode, dealing large single damage shots.

More information about changes in the game can be found here.
