Next-Gen Sports Games On PC Always Suck, This Is Nothing New

Should the Timed Kill Race format be scrapped from Warzone tournaments? Debate ensues after UK players win Toronto Ultra’s $100,000 Canada Cup

Top Call of Duty players – including some from the UK – have called for a boycott of the Timed Kill Race (TKR) format in future Warzone tournaments. This format sees teams play in their own lobbies against random players, as they try to rack up as many kills as they can within a certain time window. What should be a test between players of similar skill levels descends into a sub-game of ‘who can get the best lobbies with the easiest players in’, so that the tournament participants can improve their KDA (kill/death/assist) ratios.
