Information on the Call of Duty World League has been scarce. All we really know is that Activision is injecting more money than ever before into the competitive Call of Duty scene and that the Pro Division will feature 12 teams from North America, 10 from Europe, and 8 from Australia/New Zealand.
Today, Call of Duty announced the ‘Call of Duty World League Pro Division Qualifying Invitational‘.
On December 4th-5th, regional LAN events will be held in each of the three regions at currently unspecified locations. From these tournaments, 8 teams from North America, 4 from Europe, and 4 from Australia/New Zealand will qualify for the first season of the Call of Duty World League in the Pro Division. As this does not fill the league to full capacity, online qualifiers will be held at a later date for the remaining spots.
Included in the announcement is a list of players from all regions that are eligible to submit rosters for the invitational events. It is not completely clear how the players on the list were chosen, but it is likely that they were all past participants at the Call of Duty World Championship or had a large number of MLG Pro Points on Advanced Warfare.
Teams invited to the qualifying tournaments can be found below.
