Fresh off the immense success of Friday Fortnite and Minecraft Mondays, popular internet personality KEEMSTAR is back as the host of Warzone Wednesdays, a weekly Call of Duty: Warzone tournament featuring some of the biggest names in esports.

As a result, betting odds are out for the first week of the high-profile event, courtesy of [custom:bovada-link]. It’s a tie at the top of the oddsboard between the teams of Ninja, Crimsix & Sypher PK and Avalanche100T, Classify & Froste at +275 apiece. Rounding out the top five are TylerTeeP, NoahJ456 & aydan (+300), nadeshot, cloakzy & CouRageJD (+350) and SwaggerSouls,Goodguyfritz & GreekGodX (+500).

Warzone’s Popularity is Skyrocketing

Warzone has been praised by fans for its fast-paced action and new Gulag respawn system, which pits two recently deceased players against each other in a one-on-one clash for the right to return to the game.

Given the popularity of Activision’s latest battle royale tilt, it makes sense for KEEMSTAR to set his sights on the free-to-play game. While the event will take place on Wednesdays going forward, the first edition is getting underway on Tuesday, March 24, at 4 p.m. ET.

$20,000 is on the Line Weekly

The tournament is slated to run every week with a $20,000 prize pool. “The biggest streams, the biggest online entertainers, athletes, rappers, entertainers across the globe compete,” KEEMSTAR said in the announcement video.

KEEMSTAR hasn’t hosted a tournament since last October due to issues with hackers. Unlike Minecraft, Warzone uses a system that makes it significantly harder for players to cheat.

Entertainment options are few and far between across the world right now due to the COVID-19 pandemic. With the majority of the population urged to stay at home and social-distance from the general public, it’s safe to say Warzone Wednesdays will be a hit.
