In addition to the Call of Duty World League news, Activision has announced the return of the Call of Duty Championship. The event will take place in Fall 2016, instead of Spring.

For the first time in its history, the Call of Duty Championship will move from spring to fall, taking place in fall of 2016 to give players an extended amount of time to hone their competitive skills in Call of Duty: Black Ops III through competing in the Call of Duty World League regular season.

With the Pro and Challenge Divisions of the Call of Duty World League there is an unmatched level of series and tournament combined prizing available. There’s more than $3 million on the line between series payouts, LAN events, and the Call of Duty Championship, making it is the biggest total prize pool for Call of Duty eSports, and more than triple the previous prizing.

Activision has confirmed that the Call of Duty Championship event will be the grand finale of 2016 of events for Black Ops 3.

    last time I came this early, I became a father (jk) but anyway, I feel that although this is a good idea, I don’t think fall should be the time to do it. middle summer, sure, late summer maybe even pushing it too far. I, personally, would want to have all my attention on bo3 while I participated. but by fall, 2016, Ghosts 2 will almost be out. and IF IW learned from their mistakes, (they got a new head) Ghosts 2 could prove to be amazing.

    • Guywithbrains

      Infinity Ward has never disappointed me. I enjoyed Ghosts and Modern Warfare 3 is my favorite Call of Duty game because I don’t expect another Modern Warfare 2 level Call of Duty game. I know there won’t be one. So it is better to not set expectations too high so even you guys can enjoy incoming Call of Duty games.

      But they got a guy from MW2 times back and also some guy from Naughty Dog so we’ll see what they bring to us.

    I know this is obvious for the world league, but fall of next year is when everyone is going to hate on bo3 like crazy, gonna feel sorry for the devs.

    • Davy Crockett

      Yeah it needs to be around April or so. That’s about the end of the love cycle for COD, and would have a good ending to it.

      • MichiganerE

        You mean January?

        • Davy Crockett

          per past two games, it didn’t even last a month for me hah. But I would say yeah Feb-April is when it starts to die down.

      • RdJokr

        But then, at Fall is usually when most of the issues with the game should be fixed, thus it would ensure a better experience for the pro players.

        • Davy Crockett

          It’s fall of next year buddy, not this year. So..

          • RdJokr

            Duh, what did you think I was talking about?

          • Shaun Greig

            Pmsfl

    • Guywithbrains

      I am pretty sure specialist will be this year’s scapegoat.

      • Siftblade

        Based on what we’ve seen from people’s feedback so far, I’d say that’s pretty accurate.

      • ScOott

        Anybody who has played the beta and doesn’t like them should not buy the game.. No excuse this time round with a Beta..

    • It makes sense that they’re pushing it to Fall season because they want people to be super familiar with the game (don’t know if that’s a phrase or not) and that’s when the game it’s best because all the patches they would of gotten by then and also they probably want to do what SH and add some dlc maps into the tournaments and by October, all dlc maps would be out.

      • ItzSikh

        adding dlc maps is good by the way at least it adds variety but what they could do is also add in the dlc guns

    • Ilir

      I disagree. I think the reason why people are hating on AW and past games is because the biggest event has already been completed and therefore no one looks forward to the ending. I think with moving to Fall will take the majority of the hate away.

      • CoDforever

        i rememeber mlg anaheim 2013 for bo2 was by far the best cod event I have ever watched and the moment they showed david vonderhaar the whole chat went insane with insults and threats …

  • Stefan Lang

    Thats how it should have been tbh. I stopped watching AW after UMG Orlando. I used to love watching Ghosts as well tbh but the bomb glitch really plagued the SND matches.

  • jordanxbrookes

    This makes more sense to me tbh.

  • Slothigans

    Should’ve been a summer thing. Doesn’t that just sound so much better? Besides, you don’t need that many months to get good. By this time next year everyone will be hyped about the next cod.

  • Ryumoau

    I’m fine with the later date. 🙂

  • JoZer805g

    My prediction, that during the event, is that their going to reveal the multiplayer of the next game in 2016. Or hopefully E3 with a beta announced.

    • Guest

      They are not going to keep doing betas you damn crack fiends. Geez

    • Keshav Bhat

      Probably not. The Champs event is in Fall 2016 (so probably October). That is wayyyy to late to reveal MP of 2016 game.

    • ItzSikh

      that would annoy me the most i like cod being revealed in spring/summer time

      • JoZer805g

        Well I only mention the multiplayer, the reveal is most like in April or May, but they don’t reveal the whole multiplayer around that time.

  • Diego Diniz

    I’m Brazilian…how can we Brazilians PARTICIPATE of this event???

    • ScOott

      Lmao .. I love how you have to always tell us you’re Brazilian.. I think 90 percent of us allready know where you’re from now..

      • Diego Diniz

        Thats Good! hahahaha
        Justify my bad english…but Im trying to get it better…

        • ScOott

          You speak better English than me and I Am English! Lol.. I wouldn’t worry about it.

          • QuickzZ-_-GhosT

            That s because you speak dolan lol.

        • Kyle Soule

          Your doing a very good job speaking english. I have understood everything you said. Sure, there are a couple of flaws but everyone has flaws.

        • Daniel

          Im really embarassed of being a brazillian, I hate this country so much, can someone adopt me? XD

      • J4MES

        I thought he was from Lichtenstein..

    • Keshav Bhat

      Not sure if Brazil is supported in the Challenge Division. Will let you know if I find out.

      • TesticlewithTeeth

        Challenge Division is worldwide. I read it from Vahn or something when asked about Asia/Africa.

      • Daniel

        Im 90% sure it is

  • shitiZ

    Wait…..ghosts 2 will be released in 2016…!! Wyltf is going on now????? Explain plzzz

    • ScOott

      What would u like explaining ? 2016 is IW turn to make CoD .. It will more than likely be ghosts 2 because they need to finish the story.

    • Naw the MW HD collection coming out in 2016…

      Probably not going to happen though

      • TesticlewithTeeth

        No need to believe when Activision CEO already confirmed that the main studios wont work on “remakes”, because their aim is to evolve. There might be a chance for a third party to do so, but until now, there s no real candidate.

  • Put into motion some sort of crowd funding for prize pools via ticket sales or another method and stream it exclusively on Twitch and CoD eSports will be on the right track again.

  • GTA V

    Beep bup bap

  • ItzSikh

    why are people saying that this game will die off at feb-apr look at Bo2 its still most played on both consoles. P.S. People are only hating now on CoD just because of what ghosts did

    • J4MES

      We don’t know how BO3 will perform long term yet. The game could easily remain popular for the next 3 years or it could collapse after Christmas like Ghosts and AW did. Many expected AW to be one of the best COD’s to date and if you said to me this time last year that the game would be long dead; I wouldn’t have believed it. We’ll see how it pans out but take anything and everything with a pinch of salt when it comes to COD these days.

      • ItzSikh

        AW was going to be crap anyway even before release because of the broken Exo System

        • RdJokr

          Not according to the comment section about a month before launch. Back then, everybody (myself included) was praising SHG like crazy.

          I mean, the game is still good, but there were too many problems with it, that it just didn’t appeal to many people as it should have.

          • ItzSikh

            fair enough

        • J4MES

          That’s not what everyone was saying on here and there was absolutely no indication prior to launch that the exo system was ‘broken’. From what I remember and despite watching all the gameplay videos; AW seemed like it would do well and rejuvenate the series. Little did we all know that the game would flop as bad as Ghosts. Granted, BO3 does seem better but that doesn’t mean it will thrive in the long term – it’s impossible to judge right now even with beta access.

          • ItzSikh

            well as i’ve played WaW beta instantly knew it was going to be a great game and it was now bo3 beta has gave me the same feeling too but if it doesn’t happen i wouldn’t care because i really loved bo3

    • LLORT

      This game will be dead come Xmas. Ghosts and Advanced Warfare were both excellent Call of Duty games but the community is just bored of the series. If this was a few years ago, Ghosts and AW would be everyone’s favorite FPS games but now everyone is sick of CoD in general; BO3 will be boring and will fade out after a few weeks. Die hard fans just can’t admit the truth that their beloved series is dead and Ali A will have to get a real job soon.

      • Juses

        …”Ghosts and Advanced Warfare were both excellent Call Of Duty games”. Cunfurmed er an fagit wit zero sweg.

      • ItzSikh

        please explain how BO3 is boring, AW and Ghosts were both shit don’t how you can call them excellent because its both those games that nearly destroyed CoD

      • GTA V

        I agree with you about the BO3 fading out. They just keep feeding people the same shit like apple lol. NEW NEW NEW. Retextured same engine. I’m done RIP. This is unhealthy.

        • Daisy Doggin

          You don’t know what you’re talking about. If anybody plays this and says its the same old shit, then you’re confirming that you’re bread dead.

          • GTA V

            Bread? Whole grain please

    RIP COD

  • GTA V

    I leave you faggots with this last rant. You guys don’t know what you want. They keep nerfing weapons because people that have been gamers for years are surgical with them. So they punish the true die hard fans. They leave and wait until the next COD hoping it will be nastalgic but the creators are apeaseing to the kids that bitch. So they nerf and they nerf and make weapons harder to use. Then they add new cool things. Advanced Warfare could have saved the franchise but the time to kill and weapons was way off. Mock my words Black Ops 3 will be this year’s Advanced Warfare. That beta proved one thing to me. That treyarch was not finished with the multiplayer. The wall running was pretty sweet but what’s the point in wall running when some kid is still camping in a corner becausehe has zero skill. You can’t balance those abilities. Paper, rock, scissors. Everyone know the rules yes? One beats the other. The abilities need to almost made in the same manner. With weaknesses in order for it to make sense. Because if not its like playing cards and I pull out a dirty shitty dildo and slap it on your face. Then it’s your turn to go and you stab me with a shoe. Rewarding kids with OP guns for doing nothing… so kids keep playing. I’m done. Done with 90% of you blind guys, COD, and this forum. It’s unhealthy to love this genre so much it hurts to see what they turned it into. I can guarantee micro transactions. Because characters will be customizable. Then you’ll have an epiphany and see. Sheep.

    • lunator100hd .

      BO2 was broken as fuck, ghosts was camp city and aw was clusterfuck, all these things made cod noob friendly for sure but if bo3 is as good as beta was (with less lag) then its going to be def a step forward for the franchise after 3 years of failure. There is still hope dude.

    • MyKogInYourAshe

      “That beta proved one thing to me. That treyarch was not finished with the multiplayer. ” Well no shit m8 it’s a beta

    In 3 months time; everyone will hate Black Ops 3 and be looking forward to Ghosts 2 LMAO! Cod community in a nutshell.

    Why don’t you lot ask for different/better games this xmas/thanksgiving instead of the same old trash only to moan about it the whole following year?
