This first event for the 2021 World Series of Warzone will see 50 Trios squads from NA compete in a custom lobby over six matches. Points will be accumulated based upon the number of kills each team gets and their placements in each match. These points will determine the split of $200,000.

The remaining $100,000 will be up for grabs in the Captain’s Cup that will be led by some of the biggest names in Call of Duty esports. Five selected captains will conduct a live snake draft to assemble 10 trios. These five captain’s teams will compete to score the most points combined for the lion’s share of the remaining $100,000.
