MLG has just announced that they’re removing Capture The Flag from Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare competitive play after the X Games tournament. This change is based on the fact that Advanced Warfare’s Capture The Flag mode has not been as strategic and fun compared to other titles. Capture The Flag has been replaced by another Hardpoint in the rotation in Best of 5s. For Best of 7 matches, another Search and Destroy will be added into the competition.

Timeline of changes:

  • June 12 – New DLC Game Types Announced
  • June 12 – CTF Removed From Pro Points Tournaments
  • June 29 – New DLC Added to Pro Points Tournaments

In addition, they will be adding 2 new Hardpoint maps and 1 new Uplink map, which will be chosen from Havoc, Ascendance, or Supremacy DLCs.

With this change, for Season 3 of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Pro League, the best of 5 line up will be:

  1. Hardpoint
  2. Search and Destroy
  3. Uplink
  4. Hardpoint
  5. Search and Destroy




  1. Incoming retards who don’t give a shit about mlg but waste their time anyways by showing up and commenting.

      • Pretty sure they could have solo tournaments or side tournaments. Maybe not have them as MLG events counting for points, rather have it be for a thousand dollars to the winner? It would have to be scheduled to not clash with the team games though – so perhaps play this on the Friday, and keep the team events to Saturday-Sunday?

  2. I bet treyarch will take out ctf from their game bc competitive doesnt like it and they only listen to mlg players.
    Please treyarch I beg you, do BO1 CTF style, no kill carrier sign that’s BS
