COD: World League is in Atlanta
Yes, yes, yes, we know that the COD World League is an PS4 sponsored event, but there are lots of COD fans on the Xbox One too, so this news of the CWL is very pertinent, given that the game played is on both consoles, so we post this for all to see.
So, enough rationalization for why we are posting this news on XBA. The 2018 Call of Duty World League makes a return to Atlanta with the CWL Atlanta Open. Over 170 teams from around the world will compete in Call of Duty: WWII at the Georgia World Congress Center from March 9-11. This weekend’s competition is a key stop during the CWL season, which has a $4.2 million overall prize purse up for grabs – the largest in Call of Duty esports history
The 170 teams attending will compete in the open competition for their chance to earn one of four coveted spots in the event pool. Those four remaining teams from the open bracket will then join sixteen pre-qualified teams to compete for their share of the $200,000 event prize pool at stake this weekend in Atlanta. Matches from throughout the three-day event will be available to watch live on MLG.com/CallofDuty and Twitch.tv/CallofDuty as well as via the in-game Call of Duty®: WWII theater within Headquarters.
The sixteen pre-qualified teams earned their spots via the CWL Pro League Stage 1 – a multi-week LAN series, which takes place at the MLG Arena in Columbus, Ohio.
For those wondering, teams that are currently qualified in the CWL Atlanta Pool bracket are as follows:
We will definitely have a wrap up on Monday as to who won what, so check back then for more information.
