Call of Duty fans, get ready for some thrilling action coming your way this year as CDL announces the schedule. The Call of Duty League has released its full schedule for 2022 including the Midseason tournament. The 2022 CDL season kicks off with Major 1 in February and is followed by Major 2 in March. The Midseason tournament will take place over a period of one month, between April and May. The action gets deeper with Major 3 in May and June. Major 4 will be played in July. The season concludes with the Playoffs and Championship. However, the details around the same are not out yet.
All four Major tournaments will be hosted by four different CDL franchises. As of now, the Majors will be played on LAN at different locations across North America. But with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, “dates and locations are tentative,” as per the statements from the league. Apart from the Majors, the three events in the Midseason tournament- All-Star Weekend, Call of Duty League Warzone Pacific Tournament, and Pro-Am Classic- promise to be a thriller.
Talking about the hosts for the four Majors, the release from the league stated that Major 1 will be hosted by the newly formed behemoth of OpTic Texas on their home turf in Texas at Esports Stadium Arlington. However, the dates and location of Major 1 are subject to change according to the COVID-19 restrictions. The Minnesota RØKKR will once again welcome all 12 teams and their throngs of fans to their doorstep for Major II. The Toronto Ultra, the 2021 Runners Up, will host the penultimate Major of the season. To finish off the regular season, the New York Subliners will host the final Major of the year.
No CDL points for Pro-Am Classic
The three events in the Midseason tournament will be played over a time period of one month. The All-Star Weekend will be played from April 9-10. The second event, the Call of Duty League Warzone Pacific Tournament will be played on April 24. Each of the 12 League teams will assemble a four-person squad and drop into Rebirth Island Resurgence Quads. The last person standing on each map will take home a cash prize for their team and an additional prize is awarded for kills. The Pro-Am Classic will be played from May 5-8.
The Call of Duty League Pro-Am will be unmissable. All 12 League teams are scheduled to compete on LAN in front of a live audience (can change according to regulations in place) alongside the top four Challengers squads. The pros will be fighting for their lives as the $100,000 prize is in for the first place. However, no CDL points will be awarded for this event.
