The CoD World Series of Warzone will include invited teams and players as well as some teams from online qualifiers with a prize pool of $300K

Activision has announced the Call of Duty: World Series of Warzone event. It will feature four tournaments each with a prize pool of $300,000.

Fifty trio squads will take part in the first event. These will include invited teams and players as well as some teams from online qualifiers.

The series will consist of four tournaments, trios and duos in both NA and EU regions. A sum of $200,000 will be up for grabs via performance, with scoring done by kills and placement. An additional $100,000 will be rewarded in a segment called the Captain’s Cup.

The Captain’s Cup will feature five captains selected “based on their existing ties to the Call of Duty franchise.” Captains will draft a team of trio squads that have been formed prior to the draft.

In turn, each captain will have pre-selected two players to form their trio squad. $20,000 will go to the winning captain with $1,000 each going to the members of the winning team.

CoD World Series details

Cheating and hacking has been an ongoing topic in the Warzone community. Activision was quick to address the subject in the WSOW announcement.

Before participating in a WSOW event, all participants will need to pass an extensive and internal Activision security check to make sure their Activision accounts are in good standing.

The organisers will ban participants found to have violated competitive integrity standards from all future Activision sponsored Warzone events. Also, they may be subject to further action.

A series of qualifier tournaments will begin on May 24, bringing the top 32 teams from four initial qualifiers into a final double-elimination bracket. One winner will join the top teams for the Trios NA tournament on June 23.
