The last major Call of Duty World League open LAN event for Black Ops 4 is set to take place this weekend.
CWL Anaheim 2019 will be held in the Anaheim Convention Center from June 14 to 16. Anaheim is one of the most prestigious open LAN events each year in Call of Duty esports, so top teams will try to show what they’re made of in the Golden State.
Here’s everything you need to know about CWL Anaheim 2019.
Fans can watch CWL Anaheim on a few different streaming platforms starting Friday, June 14. The event will be streamed on MLG’s website, the official Call of Duty Twitch channels, and through the in-game World League Hub in Black Ops 4.
Just like to CWL Fort Worth and CWL London, CWL Anaheim 2019 will be split into two different tournaments. The 16 CWL Pro League teams will compete in the professional event for a $325,000 prize pool. The other teams in attendance will play in the $75,000 open bracket tournament.
The 16 CWL Pro League teams have been split into four pools for the main event. The top two teams from each group will advance to the winners bracket in the double-elimination championship bracket. The bottom two teams will head to the championship losers bracket, however. Unlike previous open LAN events, open bracket teams won’t be added to the group stage at CWL Anaheim.
