Gfinity today announced that, in partnership with Activision, they are hosting a new European Call of Duty Pro League to help develop and further the Call of Duty eSports community in Europe. The league is set to start on June 10th, with qualifiers starting May 27th.

In association with Activision, Gfinity will run an online professional league for the remaining competitive season of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. The league will be hosted on Gfinity.net and will be appropriately divided into separate divisions.

The two highest divisions, Premier and Championship, will feature the most elite teams within the European competitive Call of Duty community, while the following “Call of Duty League” will be comprised of the best up and coming talent in Europe, across multiple divisions.

Within each division, there will be 8 participating teams, with fixtures occurring on a “home” and “away” basis. Therefore, in total, teams are required to play 2 games per week, 14 games a season.

Prior to start of the League Season, teams will be allowed to register a maximum of 6 active players on their roster.

In regards to qualification, the Premier Division will have 6 teams invited and 2 spots open for qualification. The Championship division’s sports will be open to any teams to qualify. Each league season will have up to £14,000 in prize money, with £10,000 for Premier Division, and £4,000 for Championship division.

More details on how to qualify and on the league will be announced soon. All of the league matches will be available for viewing on MLG.tv/Gfinity.

    • derrrrrrrrrrrrr

      Wholy shit, I just realized I’m subbed to you.

      • Ha That’s awesome!!!!!!!!!

        • You should upload more, or do what I did and make some sort of montage (even though I suck). You have a lot of potential with that many subs.

          Note: Scott inspired me to make the video 🙂

          https://youtu.be/GSoP4iTNdb8

          • Well thanks man! And i try to upload everyday! If i can.

          • How come I only see three videos then?

          • That is my old channel here is my new one! https://www.youtube.com/user/ElectricShock14

          • Ok. 🙂

          • ScOott

            Yessssss name dropped twice in one article .. Upvote +1 .. why don’t you do YouTube ?

          • I guess I could try, it’s just that not many people watch my videos.

          • ScOott

            People are more likely to vist a YouTube Chanel than a website tho, because it’s easier to find.. When I’ve ran out of videos to watch on cod, I some times watch Jordan’s videos more often than not, n I’ve seen a few people off charlie Intel watching his videos .. He’s on a 1000+ subs ..

  • Rastgø Moonwolf

    Second!

  • Muszic

    Incoming “COD isn’t a sport” comments. No it’s not, its an esport.

    • CrazyWolf

      Nice one. Well, I guess gamers can call themselves athletes now. 🙂

      • Mini

        didn’t know esports participants are athletes.

        • CrazyWolf

          Just joking, friend. But still, think about it for a second.

      • Ben Lindley

        No, eAthletes

    • ScOott

      N now they will, congratulations … Seriously ..

    • Juses

    Again, Shitshav, I’m pretty sure more people care about BO3 news than this esports shit. https://twitter.com/DavidVonderhaar/status/593946800354033664. POST IT ALREADY! JESUS! Make somebody who fucking knows what people like a mod who can post.

    • VVFZ

      That’s not BO3…

      • derrrrrrrrrrrrr

        What is it then?

    • Joshwoocool

      that really isnt worth a article over.Id think this would work more as something like a news wrap up.

      • derrrrrrrrrrrrr

        Well Shitshav won’t do anything like w news wrap up. He has to be the worst blog poster, ever. Hell, I’m pretty sure over half of my school would actually be better at keeping up with posts on the internet. I wonder how many people want a different mod.

        • derrrrrrrrrrrrr

          Or just more mods. Keshav is the only poster, it seems. By Keshav”

        • SoulTaker

          Go to another site then if you don’t like this one? You don’t have to disrespect the man. That picture really isn’t worth anything that’s like if Keshav went through PCDevs twitter and made news on every tweet he has confirmed.

          • derrrrrrrrrrrrr

            Well if he posts items like Concept Art, I’m pretty sure some actual in-game screenshots are worthy of their own article. Plus, @Keshav, you can just go to reddit.com/r/blackops3 and Vonderhaar’s Twitter for information people want. I know “I” can just go to them to find information for me, but I care about the other people using this site.

          • SoulTaker

            I’ll agree somewhat on your first statement, but I will say that this isn’t really their job they have other obligations so they can’t be surfing the web for COD BO3 news all the time to share if they have college I’m pretty sure finals are coming up and that’s 100% more important than any COD news could ever be for example. We can’t rely on one site to give us everything we want they did a pretty good job covering BO3 when the reveal trailer was about to come out and they did a great job when it did come out and a few days after, but again they have other obligations in life so yeah…

    You know what i hate more than e sports, is people arguing if it’s a sport or not, or if it’s good or bad… Its getting as bad as sbmm just don’t comment if you don’t like it, and other people don’t make a stupid comment saying “here comes so and so saying it’s not a sport” it’s just pathetic when no one has actually said anything, your starting the argument yours self you thick shits ..

    • derrrrrrrrrrrrr

      It is a sport. It requires gear (kontrol freek, scuf, gamma, etc.) it requires practice to be really good, you have to travel to games (MLG, anyone?). Just because it isn’t physical doesn’t mean it is not a sport.

      • ScOott

        I’m not arguing with your or disagreeing with you..

        • derrrrrrrrrrrrr

        Lol good one masturbation and ed**ck measuring must be sports too. No. Sports have to be physical. Fact. Oh wait… that means…

        • ScOott

          I’m sorry I’ve spent a good ten minutes trying to work out what “ed**ck” is .. :-/

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Sorry my fault

        • Random

          Hey, if they can argue Bridge is a sport then surely they can argue eSports are a sport? Hell Bridge and Chess are recognised by the IOC as “mind sports” which take significantly less physical exertion than eSports do. But I digress; I don’t care if it’s labelled a sport or not. I enjoy spectating, and plan on attending the Gfinity Spring Masters II in June if at all feasible.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            chess is not considered a sport atm. And they require physicality, but not exertion. Games are pixels. I’d like it to be called something else. Because nadeshot is calling himself an athlete and it pisses me off

          • Random

            Fair enough. So are you saying eSports doesn’t require physicality? It requires reflexes, and stamina. I’d say it requires more physicality than chess. It probably doesn’t need the mental stamina chess does, as those games can last a long time – but tactically it’s not far off, if played at a high level. I agree they aren’t athletes though. Professional Gamer fits the bill fine.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Physicality in my book is something you’re directly involved in, so games don’t have any physicality or exertion, because it’s a fake pixelated world.

          • Random

            You are directly involved though. The characters on screen don’t move without your input, which is a physical action. Granted it’s not much, but no input means no movement. I know what you’re saying, though.

        • derrrrrrrrrrrrr

          Okay, I forgot to mention, like most sports (if not all,) you get paid. You don’t get paid for masturbation and ed*ck measuring. You included 2 asterisks.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            I didn’t mean to put the c in there.

            You could. COUGH PORN STARS. Are porn stars athletes?

            Yes lol you haven’t heard that term?

          • ScOott

            Lol no! It makes no sense, what the hell does the E stand for ? .. My recent Google search history consists of .. Gamma Labs, Ed**ck, Ed*ck and now E dick .. I hope your proud :-/ …

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            What does the e in esports stand for? If you have no idea… it means electronic. It’s a metaphorical term for people who are arrogant or people who think they’re king sh*t on turd mountain or something.

          • ScOott

            Lol right… Thank you for teaching me about Edicks ..

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Anytime pal I love ed*cks. Wut

          • derrrrrrrrrrrrr

            But do they require practice? Not necessarily. You are an argumentative one, aren’t you?

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Yes I am, no, video games aren’t sports, and nadeshot isn’t an athlete.

          • derrrrrrrrrrrrr

            Alright, anything you say man. By the way, may I ask how old you are?

    I really feel like we need a different mod other and Keshav for posting information, though. He’s missing out on so much news. BO3 pregame lobby AND the 9 abilities? Get on it Keshav. I’m even commenting.

    • ScOott

      Their only 3 guys man, it’s not like ign.. They cover so much stuff it’s rediculas,the work rate is high in my opinion, they rnt robots, N it’s not even a job to them..

      • derrrrrrrrrrrrr

        That’s what I’m saying. Hire some more people, not me necessarily even though I would post what people want.

        • ScOott

          But they make sure things are facts before they post, we don’t want a million posts about rumours..

    • You do know that the pregame lobby pic is not confirmed and is still in development right?

      • derrrrrrrrrrrrr

        It’s from Vonderhaar.

    • Keshav Bhat

      Pardon? I check David Vonderhaar’s feed all the time. We always watch for the latest news on his feed, our mentions, and everywhere I’ve always been looking. That lobby image is photoshop and not BO3 from what we were told.

      • derrrrrrrrrrrrr

        How do you know for sure that it is photoshop?

        • Keshav Bhat

          People have played the game, and I am more than sure those people would have said something if that image was even close to being from Black Ops 3.

          Also, I’ve been doing this job for four years now. I know when to post news and when not to post news. If we posted all the “leaks” it would be joke of a site here. We have to verify information before posting cause it’s about reputation and having people trust us.

      • I agree on that.

      • Juses

        It’s not photoshop… It’s from his real Twitter

        • Keshav Bhat

          I cannot tell if you’re serious or not? Yeah, it’s on his Twitter…but Vahn photoshopped it himself. He even tweeted after about why it isn’t BO3.

    • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

      • RdJokr

        Not necessary. No need to litter the news page with small details every time there is one. The CI team could do a weekly news roundup though, that’d work better.

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          That too, but if shirts are news, then so is that lol. But yeah as you said that’d be a ton better, yet would be more work…

            Just putting that out there in case someone new doesn’t get the reference.

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          That’s the point of the joke, and Hellspawn would not be plausible nor believable, which is why they won’t do it, it WOULD be amazing, though.

      • Drasadex

        Imagine Zombies and hellspawns in the same mode. That would be cool as fuck lol

    PLEASE READ So i read this months PlayStation magazine and it included a few details that i dont think have been addressed yet they are: Thrust jumping is limited to how many maneuvers you can perform in one life. Wall running will only work for a limeted time. You can change direction when sliding up to a 90 degree angle. (no dolphin dive unfortunately) The first mission takes place shortly after BO2 (which works with my Ulysses theory) You can fully customize your soldier for te campaign including gender. The robot enemies in campagn are smarter than human enemies, and will sometimes use suicide tactics and flanking maneuvers. BO3 will NOT have branching storyines like in BO2. The specialist characters in MP will have unique abilities they can use once per round, but after 4 minutes the ability wlill be ready to use even if you dont get any kills.

    • ScOott
