Treyarch’s Studio Design Director, David Vonderhaar, also took to the competitive Call of Duty subreddit to reveal a preliminary CWL ruleset, after several influential members and professional players within the competitive Call of Duty community questioned the lack of an announcement.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The game currently has a bug that will be fixed in a future patch. The CTF “Win Rule” setting is backwards. “Round Wins” is pointing to the “Total Flag Captures” string and description, and vice versa. To play with {Total Flag Captures} as the functioning Win condition, Go to [Setup Game] -> [Edit Game Rules] and set {Win Rule} to {Round Wins}. Make sure to also go to [Capture The Flag Advanced] and set {Capture Limit} to {Unlimited}.
