The much-awaited Call of Duty League is coming very soon. According to the latest news, the CDL is returning this weekend after quite many weeks of inaction. The inaction was basically because of the Coronavirus pandemic that has hit everyone on a global level. All the matches will take place completely online with players from around the world taking part remotely. This is exactly similar to what the Overwatch League (it’s fellow Activision Blizzard esports series) did previously.
Where can the Call of Duty League be Watched?
The format of the tournament will be the same as always. Eight teams consisting of players will be playing in the first Home Series. The Group stage matches of the tournament will take place on Friday, 10 April which will be followed by Knockout rounds and Semifinals on Saturday. At last, the final Championship matches will take place on Sunday.
The matches can be watched on the official Call of Duty League Youtube channel. Unlike from the past two years, where these leagues were streamed on Twitch. The Home Series schedule extends through July 26th, 2020. Further details about the championship weekend will be revealed with time.
No one wants to be in this situation, but we are, and we’re thankful that Call of Duty League can forge ahead and deliver live competition to fans when it’s probably needed most.– Commissioner Johanna Faries
Most of the esports leagues around the world are dealing with the online shift idea. It includes the Flashpoint, the ESL Pro League, and every major League of Legends tournament. “We wanted to make sure that the show went on,” Craig Levine, chief strategy officer of the ESL Pro League, told The Verge last month. In the absence of the CDL, Call of Duty still kept their gamers busy by launching Call of Duty: Warzone which is free to play.
