The World Series of Warzone is Activision's second esports series that revolves around the Call of Duty franchise, joining the popular Call of Duty League. Unlike the CDL, the World Series of Warzone is open to players that manage to make it through the qualification events in order to participate alongside the very best players in the world.
After several weeks of anticipation, the first tournament of the series is going to take place with 150 of North America's best Warzone talent facing off against each other in a bid to win the lion's share of the largest Warzone prize pool in history.

How To Watch The $300K World Series of Warzone Event
A dedicated hub that will cover the entire event will be streamed live on Twitch Rivals' official channel which can be found below.
The action gets underway on June 22nd at 5PM ET with the Captain's Draft. The draft will see the five captains decide on their squad ahead of the start of the tournament which will begin on June 23rd at 5PM.
Unlike other Warzone tournaments, the World Series will utilize private lobbies rather than teams dropping into public matches. The event will see six matches take place with points awarded for placement and the number of kills scored.
- Each kill scored equals one point
- The total will be multiplied depending on the final placements of the team.
Find a full breakdown of the multiplier below:
- 1st: 2x multiplier
- 2nd-15th: 1.5x multiplier
- 15th-50th: No multiplier
The inclusion of a multiplier adds an incentive for teams to place as high as possible in order to secure a high place on the overall leaderboards.
The tournament will see a total of $300,000 in prize money up for grabs, making it the largest prize pool ever seen in Warzone. $200,000 will be distributed to the individual teams while the remaining $100,000 going to the Captain's Cup.
