The WSOW 2023 season is broken up into two stages and a Last Chance Qualifier for North America and Europe. It also includes new regions, which will hold their own Qualifier events, and for the first time ever, the season will end with a live in-person finale.
North America and Europe Schedule
The first and second stages of the WSOW season include an In-Game Open where anyone can compete, a Qualifier, and a Final. Each stage’s Final includes $150,000 in prizing for each region. Each Final will be streamed live on the official Call of Duty® channel.
WSOW Stage I with the WSOW Trios playlist on April 27 at 10 AM PT. In addition to signing up on GameBattles (more details in the “How to Compete” section), Trios will play on a special WSOW Trios Playlist in Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 and attempt to put up their best 10 matches before 2 PM PT on April 30.
While the public Playlist will be available throughout this weekend for practice, the actual competition — and opportunity for official scoring for WSOW Stage I — will take place on April 28 through April 30 from 10 AM to 2 PM PT.
The top 50 Trios in each region will advance to the Qualifiers later in May, where they will play in a special five-map, custom lobby series with WSOW scoring. The 25 best Trios from this event — in addition to 25 Trios who will receive invitations from Activision — will compete in the WSOW Stage I Finals at the end of May.
At the WSOW Stage I Finals, teams will compete in a six-map, custom lobby series with WSOW scoring. The top 25 Trios in each region will automatically secure a place in their region’s WSOW Stage II Finals. The bottom 25 Trios will still end up with a place in the WSOW Stage II Qualifiers.
WSOW Stage II will take place in June and July with a similar In-Game Open, Qualifier, and Final format. However, the top 15 Trios in each regional Stage II Final will punch their ticket to the WSOW Global Final!
Meanwhile, the bottom 35 Trios will be joined by 15 Trios invited by Activision in the Last Chance Qualifiers, to be held in late July. This special five-map event will see the top 4 Trios qualify for the Global Final before a special WSOW Wildcard match.
In the WSOW Wildcard, the winning Trio — as in, the No. 1 team in terms of placement in that match — will take the final regional qualification spots in the WSOW Global Final.
