Elite Gamer Call of Duty Warzone Tournament Series
Something new to look into thanks to Pretty Ph3nom who had a twitch viewing party about the tournament. There is a free to play or rather free to enter tournament entering to win $25,000 Warzone pot if you play on PC only. The preshow was showing off last week’s qualifiers leading to a new week. But it shall be broken down thoroughly through the article.
What is Elite Gamer:
This new service which was introduced through Pretty Ph3nom’s stream is promoted as “Less Lagging. More Winning.” Meaning Elite Gamer offers gamers a way to automatically find a faster path to game servers. It will promise to reduce lag and ping spikes that would otherwise cause you to lose the game. So in that, it will be your own skill that will determine if you get the win or sent to the gulag! Here is a quick breakdown.
- Less Lag: Improve your gameplay when every millisecond counts with up to 32% less lag.
- Fever Ping Spikes: Experience a more predictable connection.
- Less Jitter: Raise your game with a smoother gaming connection.
So in short this service gives you an uninterrupted connection no matter what. Now we know that some people use under-handed devices to cause lag and I wonder how this would battle that if lag switching is still a thing that is. You will be able to patrol your own ping as you play. There will be a dashboard to monitor your gameplay improvements, real-time connection quality, and details from previous game sessions.

During the live stream, we got to check out the qualifier number two after getting a recap of qualifier number 1. Now, this is important because it is not available for everyone. Yes, I know you do need a PC and it is online, but it is catered to participating states.
