Finally, we have an official announcement from the CoD League. The CoD League Playoffs and Championship Weekend will officially be played online.
As everyone might have expected, the Call of Duty League has announced that their remaining games will be played online instead of at a LAN event. This won’t come without any regulations, however, as the CoD League has to continue to ensure things are played fairly. The announcement that the Home series would be played online came in March, but this left the Playoffs open to be played in person. However, now we know that they will also be fought for online instead of in-person.
A universal camera setup will be sent to each player which will allow officials to view any monitors, consoles, and controllers. Players will then need to be seated with their camera on before each game. There will also be increased options regarding the server choice for the teams. An increased level of staffing from the CoD League will help to ensure these changes run smoothly and more updates are coming.
CoD League Playoffs Statement Below
“ Due to continuing health risks associated with COVID-19 and our collective priority focus on protecting the safety of our teams, players, league staff, and partner personnel, the remainder of the season will be held online,” the CDL said in a blog post on Sunday. “This decision was made with great care, communication, and consideration over the course of many discussions.”
There are three series left to play in the CoD League this season. The New York series (July 10-12), London series (17-19), and the Toronto series (24-26). The official dates of the play-offs are yet to be confirmed by the CoD League.
