The group stage portion of the Call of Duty World League has come to an end, leaving the 8 best CoD teams in the world to battle it out in a double elimination playoff. Teams will have plenty of motivation for this weekend as the prize pool for the CWL Stage 1 Playoff is an additional $500,000. Luminosity looked shaky at the end of the Stage 1 group stage, but they followed that up with their first major win of the season at CWL Birmingham and look to be the favorites for Stage 1 Playoffs. The CWL Stage 1 playoff will take place on April 6th, 7th and 8th, the full schedule is below. You can catch the matches on MLG or Twitch.
