    • Super029something

      OpTic have a really good team and FaZe have been playing like ass recently. I think they have a good chance.

      • Jordan Rolf

  • Willekeurig persoon

    Why isn’t that MLG app available on PS4 yet?

    • spartanelite

      Because I’m pretty sure its not even up yet

      • Willekeurig persoon

        That’s exactly what I asked

    • Pj Hickey

      more than likely something to do with a xbox license agreement, i could be wrong

  • I got my Doritos, Mountain Dew and Intervention ready, I’m rootin for faze!

    • SlyCooper5555 .

      Mountain Dew? Why aren’t you drinking milk?

      • MichiganerE

        Because milk isn’t MLG like Mountain Dew is.

      • HypeeZGb

        Cows drink water not milk JS.

        • SlyCooper5555 .

          Year I know that -_- but cows don’t drink Mountain Dew either

          • HypeeZGb

            I know, buy asked why he isnt drinking Milk (as though thats what cows do) its like saying you put toast in the toaster 😉

          • GreenBolt01

            Go faze woot woot!

          • HypeeZGb

            Agreed FaZe will win.

          • jooker-jr

            We never tried to make a cow drink mountain dew so…

      • Because cows don’t drink their own piss.

        • SlyCooper5555 .


  • ScOott

    Was excited to see new news.. Then found it was just this 🙁 *edit* I know for some people this is good news just not for me … Thankyou n have a nice day

    • smayo

      Same here, i am cool with MLG having its place in CoD but it’s to much in the spotlight these days, so much it’s changing the base game in a negative way for us casuals

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        MLG ruined everything that made CoD good. People on this site should have listened to me last year.

        • smayo

          I can only agree with that, they should’ve kept MLG separate from the game which is a casual arcade fps, i dont mind something like league play as a separate playlist but it never shouldn’t have gone further then that…

          • ★Alex★

            Without MLG the game would be boring.

          • smayo

            MLG or not AW is a snooze fest anyway

          • jordanxbrookes

            So Call of Duty 4, World At War, Modern Warfare 2, Black Ops and Modern Warfare 3 were boring?

          • eVc-Alex

            Gbs was in every single one of those games. *facepalm*

        • jordanxbrookes

          Yup, Call of Duty is an arcade casual shooter, not an eSport.

          • FazalGaming

            COD is life

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            If people wanted to play competitively, then there are other options out there. Making a casual game into a magical competitive game ruins the series. That’s what happened to Halo, now that game is dying.

          • kpac

            Make it wat u like

  • Ryumoau

    Hope MLG releases an app on playstation 3 and 4.

  • Stefan

    OG gotta take this W. I think they’ll do well under the pressure now they’ve played long enough to realize how to handle it. Aches I love you but your team is going down! #Greenwall

  • Tim Vikouski

    sounds like a waste of space

  • January 2015

    Great way to start my 2015 🙂 by watching esports ! Wasn’t into esports back then but this new year ima give it ALL my attention 🙂

  • ccrows

    I’m probably gonna get hated on for saying this, but I miss the days of Complexity.

    ^ Meaning that it was like Complexity vs the World.

    IDK, to me that was more fun to watch than all this shuffling around and not knowing who is on which team anymore.

    & BTW FTR I’m not really a fan of any team…

    (inb4 Complexity made roster changes too, but the core was still there for a while)

  • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

    I just can’t get into competitive. In fact, I’m heavily against it.

    • jordanxbrookes

      I’m not into watching MLG like I was with Black Ops 2 and Ghosts. I’ve literally only seen one competitive match in Advanced Warfare, that’s it.

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        I haven’t watched a competitive gameplay hardcore at all. It’s the opposite of entertainment to me.

  • PatPatPat

    i swear i saw David vonderharr tweet something about COD 2015 then delete it.

    • smayo

      What he say ??

      • PatPatPat

        dude i don’t know, something about hardcore mode i think.

        • smayo

          Ah oke, bummer, i hoped it was like a cryptic text or picture fuelling the speculation about the time line of their next game

          • PatPatPat

            Me too. i feel like i was the only person in the world who saw it…

  • Random

    I’ll try to catch what I can. I don’t have any real love for any of the teams, I like to see underdogs performing better than expected though. Oh and when OG lose and twitter or whatever explodes with crying children. That’s always funny.

  • Jonathan Armstrong

    And here we go completely ignoring all issues with this game and SH just focuses on Esports. Make them play some TDM or KC and I bet spawning gets fixed real quick
