How the new online format works
Little has changed from the previous format. However, all competing players, supporting team members, and tournament production staff will take part in the league remotely. They may choose locations, provided that they comply with the health or quarantine protocols required by their respective governments.
Despite the online format, gamers expect the level of competition to be as intense as seen during past live tournaments.
The fans can still follow the competition in real-time through the Call of Duty League’s official YouTube channel.
Apart from enjoying the live broadcast, viewers will also enjoy Call of Duty League’s most prominent commentators’ play-by-play analysis.
What to expect this Friday
Broadcasting live for three straight days starting this Friday is the Dallas Home Series Weekend. The eight squads competing this weekend include the Dallas Empire, LA Guerrillas, Chicago Huntsmen, Paris Legion, Florida Mutineers, Minnesota Røkkr, Seattle Surge, and Toronto Ultra.
As for the remaining Call of Duty League Home Series events, those nine clashes will be similarly held on a Friday to Sunday schedule. Start times as follows: Fridays at 4 PM ET, Saturdays at 1 PM ET, and Sundays at 4 PM ET.
According to the Call of Duty League official website, the new games schedule will still retain the same amount of Home Series weekends as the original live event competition. Also, every Home Series event will have the same competing professional squads.
Still generating some momentum
Amid a global health crisis, the Call of Duty franchise still manages to remain popular in the last month.
With the comeback of Call of Duty League, its fans can have something to look forward to on weekends.
