Call of Duty League Postseason Championships to be held Online
The Call of Duty League Championships will be held online. This decision comes following a league vote between team owners. In a statement released on Twitter. The Call of Duty League announced that the postseason championships would be held online.
“The Call of Duty League has been working in close collaboration with teams and players over the last several months regarding the 2020 Season Playoffs and Championship Weekend. 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. This decision was made with great care, communication, and consideration over the course of many discussions.”
Along with moving the Call of Duty League championships online, there will also be further procedures to ensure competitive integrity in place starting this weekend at the New York Subliners Home Series.
Smile, You’re on Camera
“The League is providing all competitors with a universal camera setup that will be active throughout all matches. The cameras will provide visibility for league officials. To view and check each competitor’s console, controller, and monitor as needed. Once a match reaches an official ready check status, players will need to be seated and on camera. The cameras will be in place prior to the start of the New York Subliners Home Series on July 10.”
“Currently, for each CDL Home Series, teams are provided a list of three servers (from a pool of nine) to test and determine which servers they prefer to veto. During the Playoffs and Championship Weekend. We will increase the veto server options to five for each match. By adding more options, we have increased the probability of getting the best possible server for both teams. Additionally, with more servers in play for each match, there will also be more fallback options if there’s an unexpected issue.”
The CDL stated that they will release more details on the postseason structure soon. While many fans may be disappointed by this move, we can all agree there is not much more the League can do. And the health and safety of the players is the most important factor.
