Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4 Adds League Play Later This Month
Alongside the announcement and release of Operation Absolute Zero in multiplayer mode alongside specialist Zero, Treyarch revealed the first Call of Duty World League to begin in “early 2019” and the wait is nearly over. Beginning later this month, the studio will bring League Play events, Gauntlets, Clans and Teams. With the availability of CWL Custom Games, CODCaster and the Live Event Viewer, things are only going to heat up from here on out in Black Ops 4.
Treyarch opted out of sharing an exact date, but it will arrive by the end of January and it might be a little different than what some folks may remember League Play for. Via Reddit, Treyarch stated:
The system is designed to emulate a schedule more like the pros play, where League Play events will be intense and frequent but shorter duration, generally spanning weekends or 3-day periods.
In between those events, Scrims will be run as an unranked playlist using CWL rules so that players and teams can sharpen their skills before a competition. Both League Play events and Scrims will use skill-based matchmaking, where focus has been applied to making sure skill matches are as accurate as possible without resulting in empty lobbies or long wait times.
League ladders will be built around 50-player groupings to ensure the most intense competition for these shorter-duration events. We’ll provide more around how the ranking system works along with other details as we approach the launch date.”
Alongside League Play, the developers will be launching the World League Hub as well. However, as Treyarch approaches the end of January, the release date of these features are “subject to change” to ensure enough time has been invested into “play-testing and incorporating feedback before it launches.” Fair enough. After all, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 only launched in October. Since then, there’s been plenty of projects the developers have had to accomplish from then until now.
