Activision’s Call of Duty series is incredibly popular and March 28-30 will see the second annual Call of Duty Championship, in which 32 of the best CoD teams get together to compete for glory, the right to be called the “World Champions,” and a $1 million prize.
The Championship is held in Los Angeles and is sponsored by Microsoft. Players can be either professional or casual and will come from North America, South America, Europe, Africa, Asia, and Australia. However, because of its sponsor, only Xbox 360 and Xbox One owners are eligible for the competition. Players will compete in online tournaments to qualify for the Championship. Regional finals will played on the Xbox One in late February and early March. The tournaments, finals, and Championship will all be broadcasted through MLG.tv and other broadcasting programs.
Many PlayStation 3 and 4 players are upset that they cannot compete in the Call of Duty Championship and feel it shows favoritism on Activision’s part. Nevertheless, Microsoft is sponsoring the Championship, so the move is not entirely unexpected.
