Infinity Ward’s Senior Community Manager, Tina Palacios, has posted an update on the studio’s official Facebook page regarding eSports.

She talks about the new Broadcaster Mode and the new CODeSports settings that have been implemented for MLG Columbus.

The great thing about our new eSports update is that you can go into Private Match or System Link now to enable various eSports rules to your liking, and then when you customize your loadout, you’ll see what’s been removed from the competitive scene. The team is eager to see these changes in place for the event. I’ve been watching some of the teams livestream their moments on Twitch and all that was missing was Puckett casting them. Speaking of which, if you get the chance, I highly recommend you watch the All-Star showdown today.

Palacios has also confirmed that Activision and Infinity Ward will be providing new details regarding the Call of Duty Championship 2014 in January.

There’s a lot of excitement in store for our fans, and I’m happy to say that Infinity Ward is proud to be apart of it. Now who wants to take bets on who will win the COD Championships next year? You can expect to find out first details in January for this big event.

    Please, add back CTF and/or HP… I doubt this will be a good championship with SnD, Blitz and Domination…

    • IT4ZERI-Fariko T4ZER

      I agree but Blitz i can live with but domination… scrims just aren’t as fun 🙁

        dom is boring on octane but it can be intense on Sovereign and Freight

        • IT4ZERI-Fariko T4ZER

          I don’t enjoy it personally bro

    • Tony Rambo

      Guys HP is NOT coming in Ghosts…just get over it :/

    • HenryDF

      Can you really see HP work in Ghosts? The reason it flourished in BO2 was because of the smaller maps and the easy transitions between hardpoints, whereas perhaps the main criticism of Ghosts multiplayer is that the maps are too big. Yes, it could work on Freight or Flooded, but on maps like Stonehaven or Whitehout it would be boring and tedious.

      • Mitch

        Yeah that’s true.

      • ur a noobie

        dude only one of the 4 maps you said is MLG so dont talk about something you don’t know.. what about Octane, freight, strikezone, warhawk and sovereign? learn your thing this maps are the most symmetric and small so they would work on hardpoint.

        • HenryDF

          Trust me, I know my shit. But Ghosts just isn’t the right type of game for Hardpoint, and it won’t be added – let’s just face it.

          • A

            I’m a big competitive supporter but HP would not work on ghosts because you die so easy and there are no streaks to break HP’s so a strong set up would be nearly impossible to break, Not to mention the spawns would be random and trophy systems aren’t nearly as useful as BO2.. CTF would work and would be very entertaining to watch on some maps. Still though they should have implemented a League Play system because GB’s are fun but a pain that you have to go to a website to get a game!
