The pools for the Call of Duty World Championships, to take place 14-18 August, have been revealed and they're looking pretty exciting.
The $2m tournament is bringing together 32 of the best teams in Call of Duty esports, competing across eight groups of four teams each. The pools are as below.

All eyes will be on teams such as eUnited, who won the most recent CWL Finals in Miami, giving Clayster his first championship win in 1400 days, to go back-to-back, with 100 Thieves the only team to have done so this year.
It is also likely that the Call of Duty World Championship is the last time we will see OpTic Gaming in Call of Duty â€“ at the very least, it will be the last time we see OpTic as we know it in CoD. Long-time members Seth "Scump" Abner, Ian "Crimsix" Porter and Damon "Karma" Barlow will be looking to give the organisation one last hurrah before Immortals' acquisition (likely) sees them leaving the org.
Luminosity Gaming are the only other team to win a championship this season, whilst teams such as Gen.G, FaZe Clan, Splyce and Reciprocity have all come tantalisingly close over the last few months. Can they finally push that boundary at the big one?
