Major League Gaming has announced that the first Pro League Season for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will start in December, featuring the top 12 teams – the top 8 teams from Season 3 of the Call of Duty: Ghosts Pro League and four teams from the first Advanced Warfare eSports event in the November.

Immediately following the premiere event in Columbus from November 28-30, MLG will begin Season 1 of the MLG Call of Duty®: Advanced Warfare Pro League online. Starting in December, 12 teams, including the top eight teams from Season 3 of the MLG Call of Duty®: Ghosts Pro League and the top four teams from the MLG Open 25k Series Tournament in Columbus will compete for $75,000 in prizes, $96,000 in participation payments (to be paid out at the season’s end based on each player’s number of matches played), 250 Pro Points per Regular Season Match win, and a 25k Series Playoffs.

“We’ve listened to feedback from the community and evolved our structure to benefit the players and fans,” said Adam Apicella, EVP MLG Properties. “Two of the most requested adjustments were for more events where aspiring players could compete with the Pros and to incorporate higher stakes for regular season Pro League matches. We heard you loud and clear. The MLG Open 25k Series in Columbus will be the first of many Pro Circuit tournaments to feature pool play where players will be given the chance to compete against the Pros. Additionally teams that qualify and compete in Season 1 of the Advanced Warfare Pro League will earn money for every match played and pro points for every match won.”

            oh lol

          • Lol I got it because “k” is always the response I get from people.

  • Meh.

    Should be a great year for competitive. League Play was fun and still is to this date. I expect the non exo playlist to be for comp games. Im already knowing Riot Hardpoint is gonna be the fan fave. Cant wait to see how Optic does. And no, Im not one of them fanboys that just likes the team to like it I’ve kept up with Optic since 2010 and their pretty much my fav team aside Envy. Not a fan of EG though only because Aches is an asshole but he’s great player still.

  • VVFZ

    Really hope this game is good for esports. It looks like it’ll be great but ya never know these pros might get annoyed with the Exo-suit mechanics and they’ll decide to ban them, which imo would make the game much less interesting and quite boring.

  • 🙁

    • Ryumoau

      whats wrong?

      • Potato Republic

        Aside from Advanced Warfare not coming out for a couple more weeks and that the Ebola Virus has been confirmed in the United States and in Spain…

        Nothing much. 😛

        • Siftblade of Rivia

          The Ebola thing is really overplayed.. remember swine flu?

          • Juses

            This is different. This is more deadly… i think

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Yeah, but that’s an example of how media overhypes (Is that the word?) these things. Swine flu was basically like a cold, and people shut down schools and stuff because the media overhyped it to shit.

          • Im just sick and i wanna make more videos, and ghosts is crap..

  • Ryumoau

    Yay! This is great since i haven’t been paying attention to the competitive CoD scene lately because of how unexciting Ghosts is to watch. But with Advanced Warfare, i’m really excited to see how the pro scene grows next year. 🙂

  • drjakeyoung

    Charlie Intel, do you think this might be worth news? http://www.xboxachievements.com/game/call-of-duty-advanced-warfare/achievements/

    Looks like secret achievements for the fourth game mode, like extinction.

    • Miguel

      Those secret achievements are completing the campaign missions.

  • ScOott

    I hate all this e sports thing it seems that pro players only their opinion that counts the rest of us get overlooked compared to a pro player..

  • well, i couldn’t care less, too busy playing alien isolation

    • Ryumoau

      thanks for that pointless post. 🙂

    • Juses

      That game is bad

      • MichiganerE

        How, because it’s not CoD?

        • Juses

          Nope i’m not a cod fanboy. I barely play cod. I mainly play other games.

          • MichiganerE

            Then tell me why it’s bad.
