20. May 2024 by Valentin Pasetti

Activision has released comprehensive details for the World Series of Warzone 2024 (WSOW) season. This year’s competition includes significant changes based on community and competitor feedback.

Key Changes for 2024 WSOW

New Features and Format Adjustments:

  • Global Final format with a new Match Point system
  • Top-heavy prize pool
  • Increased number of qualification matches
  • Battle Royale competitive settings

The competition kicks off soon, with the first qualifiers beginning on May 24.


Match Point System in WSOW 2024

One of the most notable additions to the 2024 WSOW is the Match Point format. Borrowed from the Apex Legends Global Series, this system aims to enhance excitement during the final stages of the Battle Royale.

Key Aspects of the Match Point System:

  • Ensures the winner is determined by a dramatic moment rather than cumulative points.
  • Increases viewer engagement and excitement.
  • Reduces the likelihood of anti-climactic victories decided by mathematical calculations.

While this format may sometimes result in teams with higher overall points not winning the grand prize, it undeniably heightens the viewing experience.

Event Schedule and Registration

The 2024 World Series of Warzone starts on May 24 with the In-Game Open Online Qualifier for the NA and EMEA regions. This phase lasts for three days and is open to all participants.

How to Register
