Activision and Xbox are once again teaming up to bring the Call of Duty Championship to sunny California.
This March, 32 teams from around the world will battle it out to try and take home the title of best Call of Duty team in the world and a significant chunk of that enormous $1 million prize pool.
The 32 teams will be made up from Europe, America, South America, Asia and Australia after an online qualification tournament that will take place in February.
If you’re yet to watch any of Advanced Warfare’s competitive multiplayer, I’d strongly recommend it. It’s one of the most entertaining when it comes to a spectating sport for a long time. MLG’s first competitive CoD season is well under way and OpTic Gaming are currently crushing the competition.
TL;DR: 27-29th March, $1 million, Santa Monica CA, streamed live.
Winning their way through three days of intense multiplayer competition against 30 other professional four-player teams, Fariko Impact and EnVyUs met face to face at centre stage for Sunday’s finals matchup to determine who would be crowned World Champions at the Call of Duty Championship, presented by Xbox.
In the end, Fariko Impact, consisting of Damon “Karma” Barlow, Adam “Killa” Sloss, Marcus “MiRx,” and team captain Chris “Parasite” Duarte (pictured above) emerged victorious and cemented their spot as the best Call of Duty: Black Ops II players in the world, taking home $400,000 of the tournament’s $1 Million prize purse. Team EnVyUs took home $200,000, while third place team OpTic Gaming took home $120,000, with the remaining prize purse distributed among the remaining top eight teams.
