Many fans and players alike weren’t the biggest fans of the inaugural Call of Duty League season format. With only 10 out of the 12 teams competing at each event, we had some events where there was a clear winner. This year that changes, with a brand new structure for the 2021 Call of Duty League season.
Five Stage Structure
The 2021 Call of Duty League season will feature five stages. Each stage will culminate in a Major tournament. During each stage, all 12 teams will compete in five group play matches in three different Home Series events. These events will determine their seed for the Major.
Major Tournament Structure
The Major tournaments throughout the year will all be played in a double elimination bracket. The teams seeds will be based on their performances from the three previous Home Series events leading up to the Major.
Call of Duty League Points
Teams will earn CDL points for each victory in the Group Play matches, with additional points distributed for teams performances at Majors. CDL Points are more important than ever this year, with only the top 8 teams qualifying for the Call of Duty League Postseason.
