Before the Tournament

Checking Contact Info

Call of Duty: Warzone tournaments can require a lot of communication and cooperation with the tournament organizers. We recommend you try being an active communicator throughout the competition.

Primary contact info is listed at the top of the page, and if there is additional contact info, the links to those will be listed at the bottom of the Home page.

Checking Event, Match Information

After registering, your events will display in your Manage Registration page. Match information will display once brackets have been published by the organizer. Brackets are generally published by organizers after registration has concluded.

You can also view match and bracket information on the Event page once they've been published.

Tournament formats vary. A Warzone tournament format is typically either Free-For-All (aka FFA, Elimination Rounds)—where players compete with multiple opponents at once—or a head-to-head format—where players compete with one opponent at a time. Read more on tournament formats here.

You can generally find information on tournament formats, deadlines, times, rules, and more on the tournament's home page. If not, contact the organizer for further help.

  2. Clicking the View Match button next to the event, listed in the Your Events section

Starting Your Match

Generally, you'll need to join a lobby with your opponent(s) to play games together.

Be sure to start matches according to organizer instructions first. Otherwise, you can generally organize the lobby with your opponents by:

Reporting Your Match

Every player in a group will play a set amount of matches, keeping track of their eliminations and placements as they go, and report them to the moderator. Points are awarded based on performance. Then, a set amount of players in each group will advance based on their total point score.

If the organizer has enabled self-reporting, you may report your own scores in the Player Tasks tab. When reporting for your team, be sure to include your team's total placement and kills.

Verifying Match Results

After notifying the moderator of your results, await for results. Organizers will verify results, and then update scores when finalized.
