Gaming organization 100 Thieves have announced that alongside their CDL team LA Thieves, they will also be building a competitive Warzone team.
Warzone tournaments have been occurring weekly since the launch of Warzone in March. These tournaments, most commonly 2v2 kill races, attract hundreds of thousands of viewers.
With the biggest names in Call of Duty competing, there are often extremely large prize pools. Streamer Jordan ‘HusKerrs’ Thomas, who has competed in and hosted Warzone tournaments, has earned over $100,000 dollars from tournaments alone.
LA Thieves Warzone team
100 Thieves are capitalizing on the success of competitive Warzone by creating a team. Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag and 100 Thieves president and COO John Robinson discussed Warzone in the LA Thieves announcement video.
“We really believe in Warzone,” said Nadeshot. “We believe in the future of this game mode, we believe in the future of the competitive scene around Warzone.”
No members of the 100 Thieves Warzone team are announced or teased yet. As a former CoD pro, Nadeshot revealed he won’t be leaving retirement for competitive Warzone.
About finding players, he said: “There are some truly special players that have created communities that are so large and welcoming and just massively engaged as they compete every single day and live Warzone. And so we want to build one of the greatest Warzone teams that you’ll ever witness in the history of, not only Call of Duty, but battle royale in general.”
The LA Thieves Warzone team is the first Warzone team to be announced.
Future of Competitive Warzone
The future of competitive Warzone is uncertain. Currently, all tournaments are unofficial and played in public lobbies. With private Warzone lobbies expected to arrive in the future, the competitive aspect could evolve. The CDL experimented with private lobbies in the Home Series weekends, pitting CDL pros and coaches against each other in Verdansk.
Treyarch has hinted that there will be more competitive options for players in Black Ops Cold War, so competitive Warzone in some capacity is likely.
This news comes alongside the announcement of the LA Thieves CDL team and a competitive CoD: Mobile team.
