The Call of Duty League is the biggest professional league for the game and was reshaped to be franchise and location-based this year. Twelve teams representing eleven cities around the world (Los Angeles has two teams) compete in 5v5 matches, with each team getting two chances to play at home and defend against visiting teams. For example, week 2 takes place in London and sees the London Royal Ravens being visited by the Chicago Huntsmen, the Dallas Empire, the Los Angeles Guerrillas, the New York Subliners, the Paris Legion, the Seattle Surge, and the Toronto Ultra. Throughout the season each team will play against each other, with all games being in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare on PlayStation 4 and switching between different maps and game modes.

If you’re not a professional, you still have a chance to compete with the Casual Leauge. Having both online and LAN rounds, this league features 2v2 matches using Modern Warfare‘s Gunfight game mode, which sees players handed randomized weapons every round. If the visit to this year’s finals is any indication, this is an event you want to check out.
