The second-to-last week of action in the Call of Duty World League for Call of Duty®: Black Ops III has come to an end, which means that it is time for an updated edition of eSportsNation ’s power rankings for the North American teams participating in this league.
Just as a reminder, the point system for these power rankings will be calculated based on the rankings submitted by any of the eSportsNation staff members. These staff members were asked to rank the 12 teams in order from best to worst, with No. 1 being the best and No. 12 being the worst. Points will be rewarded to mirror a team’s ranking; for example, the first place team will receive 12 points, while the twelfth place team will receive one point.
After every week of action, we will be releasing another power rankings article where the teams will either move up or down based on how they perform in their matches, so don’t forget to check back here each week for the latest power rankings.
Without further ado, here are your power rankings for this week.
