Confirmed 5v5 Teams And Vegas Qualification
The fourth year of the Call of Duty World League brings roster rule changes, the return of the Pro League, and several new initiatives aimed at rewarding the dedicated amateur scene. 
- Call of Duty World League will transition to a five-versus-five format.
- Region restrictions have been removed from all LAN events, allowing players from around the world to come together to compete at CWL events.
The first 12 Pool Play spots will be grandfathered in based on the top-12 teams from CWL Pro League Stage 2:
- Roster restrictions apply: Stage 2 teams must retain three of four players from their roster to qualify
- Any top-12 team that does not retain the majority of its roster will be replaced by teams with the highest amount of combined CWL Pro Points from the 2018 season.
The final four Pool Play teams will be determined via a relegation style play-in, broadcast-only tournament in Las Vegas on December 6:
- The top-eight teams with the highest amount of combined CWL Pro Points from the 2018 season will qualify into this tournament
- The top-four teams in this tournament will join the 12 teams in Pool Play, while the four losing teams will be seeded in the Open Bracket
- Pool Play and Open Bracket seeded by CWL Pro Points from the 2018 season
Those familiar with last year’s tournaments know the rest. The top-four teams out of Open Bracket join the 16 Pool Play teams. Pool Play teams compete for seeding in the Championship Bracket, and the four Open Losers Bracket survivors will be placed in the Championship Bracket Losers Round 1.
- Top 4 Winner's Bracket teams qualify for Pool Play
- Top 4 Loser's Bracket teams qualify for Championship Bracket Loser's Round 1
NOTE: Seeds 2 and 3 for each pool will be drawn randomly from pot 1 and pot 2 respectively
