The Call of Duty League features the premier professionals in Call of Duty, wherein twelve teams of four players vie for glory on the mainstage. Though the last few majors and even last year’s champs were online, obviously due to the Covid pandemic, recently, the folks of the Call of Duty League were excited to announce the return of LAN! Major IV took place on LAN, without a crowd, and saw Atlanta Faze lifting the trophy, fending off the attacks of Dallas Empire led by Crimsix. The company has officially announced that Major V and the upcoming Championship Weekend will both be on LAN and fans will finally be back in the centre!
The Major V is set to take place from Thursday 29th July to 1st August while the Playoffs and Championship Weekend is scheduled for 19th August to 22nd August. At the Major V, fans will only be afforded weekend passes, and so will not be allowed in the stadium on Thursday and Friday. Major V is set to take place at the eSports Stadium in Arlington Texas and the Championship Weekend heads over to Galen Center, Los Angeles, California to bring an end to the competitive year for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.
Today, the New York Home Series has commenced and will last until Sunday 11th July. Thereafter, there will be more home series until Major V. At Major V, the teams will vie for a top eight position in the overall rankings to ensure that they can make it to the Championship Weekend.
