Warzone: Add event for real start of the match

Related Games: Call of Duty Warzone

  • Feature Description:
    Add information about when the match actually started. Current “match_start” represents just the start of the game process but it includes warm-up as well which is not the start of the real match for a player
  • impact for my app:
  • What is your current pain point?
    There is a need to track the match duration from the start of the dropping to the end of the match for a player (when he and his squad is died)
  • What do you have in mind to solve it?
    add “warmup_start” and “warmup_end” events or just add additional event for the start of the real game process

Hi, and thanks for the feedback.

We will discuss the matter internally, and we will update you here.


We have paused all further development for new Warzone features due to new policies being instilled by the Activision team. We will let you know in this thread if there will be any changes regarding this.

Having said that, you can detect the “match start” time by following the roster info-update and search for the moment when the local player “armor” is above 100 (when he’s in the airplane).
