MLG has announced their next Call of Duty World League event, MLG Orlando. The event will take place from August 5th through August 7th at The Loews Royal Pacific at Universal Studios Orlando.

The event will feature all 12 of the North America Call of Duty World League Pro Division and allow 96 other amateur teams to compete for their share of the $100,000 prize pool.

We are excited to announce that Major League Gaming (MLG), in collaboration with the Call of Duty® World League, Presented by PlayStation®4, will be hosting the Call of Duty® MLG Orlando Open. Held at The Loews Royal Pacific at Universal Studios Orlando on August 5-7, the event will feature up to 96 amateur teams and 12 North American CWL teams competing head-to-head in Call of Duty®: Black Ops III on PlayStation®4 for a $100,000 Prize Pool and more than 2,500 CWL Pro Points. As part of the Call of Duty MLG Orlando Open, players can earn CWL Pro Points as a chance to qualify for the highly-anticipated Call of Duty Championship, Presented by PlayStation®4, which will take place later this year.

The format of this event will be the same as MLG Anaheim. The 96 amateur teams will compete in a Double Elimination Open Bracket. The final four teams will advance to Pool Play, where the 12 CWL Pro Division teams will be separated into four different pools based upon CWL Pro ranking. From there, each team will play one match against another team in their pool. The final pool play standing will determine the team’s placing in a Double Elimination Championship Bracket.

    Just found out the giant is on last gen? Is this new or since lauch. Watched gameplay of it and it looks so ugly on last gen

    • TheDemonOfHate

      Sad that a 2009 map looks better than a 2016 map.

      • BradyAlucard

        Are you talking about World at War vs. Black Ops 3 or The Giant vs. every Black Ops 3 Zombies map? Assuming you’re talking about World at War; I agree. They put a lot less work into the last gen version and it was so overpriced it’s ridiculous. The game is 30FPS locked and it still looks worse than Black Ops 2, and the same goes for Advanced Warfare.

        • Casey

          It looks bad because the 360 or 3 can’t handle the graphics to actually run at a reasonable fps. Either buy it or not, they aren’t forcing you.

          • BradyAlucard

            Nah, they just didn’t try, because Black Ops 2 looked quite a ways better. Oh well, at least the PS4 version has some of the best 60FPS/1080p graphics this generation.

          • CoDforever

            or it was rushed.

          • Liam Smith

            you cant really compare them two games however you can compare bo1 graphics between xb1 and xb360

          • BradyAlucard

            Sure you can.

          • BradyAlucard

            That’s what I implied.

          • CoDforever

            oh, i thought you were backing up the guy that said “Activision told them to make it look shitty”

          • BradyAlucard

            I for sure meant to say that it was rushed.

          • jordanxbrookes

            If you believe that you’re an idiot. Yes the graphics on last-gen would look worse than on current-gen, but not as horrible as it is now. Activision told Beenox to make it look as shit as possible on purpose so people will see that last-gen is done with and give them the incentive to upgrade.

          • CoDforever

            Im willing to bet thats not the case at all, the BO3 port was clearly rushed, nothing else.

          • jordanxbrookes

            That could also be another possibility. Either way it was just a cheap cash grab for Activision.

          • Ak74u

            It was done on purpose because black ops 2 looks a lot better on last gen and they had 2.5 years to make this game even on last gen so they had plenty of time

          • BradyAlucard

            I thought they only had one year?

          • Ak74u

            Yeah I bet it was made to look bad on purpose I mean even bo2 and bo1 didn’t look that bad on last gen they looked a lot better on last gen than bo3. It’s clearly done on perpose just another one of activisions plans to take advantage of the customers and make them upgrade so they can have acces to all the other microtransactions and money grab

  • Did AW ever give out that free camo for watching that MLG thing a while back?

    • jordanxbrookes

      That Gold-Silver Star camo? Idk, I didn’t watch it because I despised COD eSports at the time and still despise it.

      • TfarTn

        Who cares what you despise… ?

        • BradyAlucard

          Me.

      • Keshav Bhat

        dang, that sucks. you’re missing out. its a ton of fun to watch.

        • jordanxbrookes

          Not as fun as watching CS:GO.

          • Keshav Bhat

            I enjoy watching both! And recently, League of Legends and Halo.

          • jordanxbrookes

            Not really into LoL but Halo is fun to watch too.

          • CoDforever

            I have found CSGO to be extremely lame, its just 1 game mode and its so slow. Thats not a bad thing, but Search and Destroy in CoD is perfect because not only is it played a couple times but its also a good blend of slow/strategic and fast paced/hectic

    • J4MES
      • But they did.

        • My brother never got it.

          • That’s weird. I didn’t watch the thing so I wouldn’t know if the giveaway was bs or not. :-

          • why would you argue against something you don’t actually know the outcome of?

          • There was an article on CI about it awhile ago, that’s why.

  • Jerrot

    Still waiting on a Canadian league tho

    • Kobrah

      Canada is not included in the North America league?

      • Dávid Mészáros

        That’s racist

        • Kobrah

          .?

  • [EV] BLISS

    Ok treyarch this isn’t funny anymore. Just tweet out that there is double xp tomorrow or something….

  • Michael Romo

    Totally unrelated, who else misses the maps from BO2? I mean, they were no MW2 maps, but they were definitely better than most BO1 maps and all of BO3’s maps.

    • fr4gbob

      I do, I think the maps on BLOPSII were awesome…. and I did upvote your post, till I saw that you had upvoted it yourself lol, kinda weird…. so you can count your own as mine and just keep the one lol

      • ben wills

        Do some thinking for once: Give me one logical reason that’s weird. He made the comment, he should clearly like it “lol”.

        • fr4gbob

          You will hopefully figure it out for yourself one day 🙂

        • BradyAlucard

          Because it can be taken as ignorance. Do YOU think, for once?

    • ben wills

      “better than most BO1”

      Found the idiot. Yeah, if you don’t like actually having to aim or outsmart your enemy for your kills and have everything delivered to you via shitty netcode, then sure, BO2 maps are great. The stupidity…

      • CoDforever

        someone cant handle an opinion lmao

        • Dávid Mészáros

          He’s true in the second part tough.

          • BradyAlucard

            Black Ops 2 had quite a few great maps. And MW3 is growing on me.

    • J4MES

      BO2’s maps were decent and varied but I think BO1’s were the best as each one was very appropriately designed for each mode on offer. BO2’s worked fairly well in most modes but some like Turbine, Aftermath and Drone were just too big. Some in BO1 were large like Array, Jungle and Launch but they centralised the gameplay into key areas which made matches flow better. BO1 wasn’t also riddled with this 3 lane philosophy which makes spawns and matches in general, rather predictable. BO3’s are inconsistent to say the least and even the return of Nuketown and Hijacked didn’t have the spirited impact I was expecting although some re-imagined ones on BO2 like Summit and Stadium went the same way.

    • jordanxbrookes

      I was gonna like your comment until you said “better than most BO1 maps”. Smh.

  • Qwayze

    Anyone else waiting for this season of CoD esports to finish? I’m sick of hearing about it, I know I don’t have to click on the article but it can’t be just me who finds esports pointless and rubbish, Its just boring to watch and the commentators are annoying as.

    • xXN0sC0p3Xx

      I’m fucking tired of seeing this bullshit. Cods youtube page is spammed with this shit. Is it really so popular to see sweaty players playing a game against other sweaty ones?

      • Dávid Mészáros

        Not really only 500 people on streams lmao

        • Keshav Bhat

          You clearly have no idea what you’re talking about.

          Stage 1 Call of Duty Finals had 228,000+ viewers; match of the week between OpTic and FaZe last week had over 60,000+ viewers.

          • J4MES

            228,000 is very low for a tournament in eSports. CSGO matches get about 3-5m and Cologne last year had 27,000,000 viewers. That’s not even mentioning DOTA and LoL which are far more appropriate eSport titles that demand proper skill which also attract a similar audience. Anything less than 8m viewers for COD is tragic.

          • Dávid Mészáros

            500 people is still dog shit compared to a channel which has 4 million subscribers I know the channel isn’t focused on e-sports but still.

    • J4MES

      I’m not a fan of eSports but I respect some games which take skill and proper team work. Call of Duty is just a game which relies on strong aim assist and no recoil guns which takes no skill whatsoever and that’s why I find this MLG nonsense very sad indeed. The commentators do their best to add drama and over the top reactions but it’s just rather embarrassing really.

      • BradyAlucard

        Gaming is supposed to be fun, not ultra super duper competitive. Completely defeats the purpose of a game.

    • Does it ever end?

    • jordanxbrookes

      I think the only time when I enjoyed watching competitive matches was in Black Ops 2 and MW2.
