Envy are hosting their final Jack Link’s invitational Warzone tournament of the Black Ops Cold War season, and it looks set to be a big one.
The Jack Link’s invitationals have been a regular series of Warzone tournaments throughout Warzone’s lifespan, crowning various winners and giving away hundreds of thousands of dollars in prize pool money.
Now, they’ve announced one last one before the launch of Call of Duty: Vanguard on November 5, which is set to shake up both CoD multiplayer and Warzone completely, bringing a brand new map to the battle royale.
Envy, who own CDL team Dallas Empire, are one of the longest-standing parts of Call of Duty’s competitive ecosystem and are bringing together some of Warzone’s finest to compete for $30k. Here’s the lowdown on the final Jack Link’s invitational of the BOCW season.
Envy Jack Link’s invitational stream
The tournament will be streamed on Envy’s own Twitch channel, as embedded above, but you will also be able to watch from your favorite player’s perspective if you tune into their stream on the day.
Jack Link’s Warzone invitational format & schedule
The Jack Link’s invitational tournament takes place on September 28 and should take up the majority of the afternoon.
The starting time for the tournament is yet to be announced, but previous iterations of the tournament kicked off at roughly 10 AM PT (1 PM ET/6 PM BST), so expect this one to follow suit.
After some deliberation between teams and the organizers, the tournament changed from mini royale to regular Verdansk. It is a trios tournament in custom lobbies. Here’s how scoring works:
- 1 kill = 1 point
- 1st place = 2x point multiplier
- 2nd-8th = 1.5x point multiplier
- 9th-25th = 1x multiplier
You asked, we listened 👏
The new & improved format for the @JackLinks Invitational TOMORROW
