    Perhaps they should postpone it until the game is fixed? I know the eSports lot are all fanboys who love cod but they are such mugs to the franchise especially when it comes to bad, broken games.

  • Siftblade of Rivia

    I know this is kinda unrelated but does anyone know what points in my bank do in AW/clan wars? It says I have 25 points in my bank but I can’t do anything with it.

          • ExoDoge confirmed?

        • Remember this? Well I guess the time has come 🙂

  • CrowReap .

    How do you get pro points

  • meow

    aha im sorry but CoD just doesnt seem competitive any more. the game is broken and the skill level never seems to be increased not even a leaf taken from pro-mods which have been around before these kids were even playing this game. think ill stick to dreamhack for this one thanks

    • Colin MacKenzie

      The game may seem broken in pubs for some players, but eSports players for the most part have been rather comfortable with the game.

      • meow

        they are comfortable because the difficulty never changes much, least the walls are not made of paper i guess lol

    • Muszic

      You’re in my prayers

  • ScOott

    What are the rules for this… Exo movements band, exo ability banned, upgradable score streaks band and bal banned ? Asked every pro player

  • Thecallrocks

    Is anyone’s game crashing on the ps4? I am….. its annoying

  • UndeadMurderer

    Screw MLG “PROS”… they ruined COD with their “Advice” to game developers!!!

  • Tep Kok

    Literally who cares when dreamhack CSGO is on

    • FergusonHandsUp

      CSGO hands down, best of the best, while poor CoD sucks so hard, haha MLG players lmfao

  • Favorite Ape

    Pretty sure Open Bracket Contender will take it this year. They got mad skills.

  • Mr codman1976

    Thank god it’s on Lan lol

  • Favorite Ape

    They should spread the players across the globe and have them play on activisions proprietary listen server setup for the best in gameplay experience. They should be sure to have a camera on their faces as they play and not bleep any words out. I would watch that for sure.

  • meow

    remember me saying they dont use dodge for shit….. yep just jumping really high seems to be the use of the exo now
