The inaugural season of the 12-team Call of Duty League is underway. Eight of the best CoD teams in the world have their eyes set on Los Angeles for the third Home Series Weekend of the season.

The first weekend of games, branded as Launch Weekend, was hosted by the Minnesota RØKKR in Minneapolis from Jan. 24 to 26. All 12 teams competed in the three-day event. But at Home Series events, only a limited number of teams will attend.

Here’s how to watch the Call of Duty World League Los Angeles Home Series.

Format

Unlike Launch Weekend, where teams had pre-determined opponents throughout the event, the eight teams attending the Los Angeles Home Series will be split into groups of four and compete in a mini-tournament.

In Group A, the Minnesota RØKKR, Seattle Surge, and the two hometown teams, OpTic Gaming Los Angeles and the Los Angeles Guerrillas, will fight to be the two teams to advance to bracket play. The Atlanta FaZe, Florida Mutineers, Dallas Empire, and New York Subliners are in Group B.

The two teams from each group that win two matches will advance to the four-team, single-elimination bracket to conclude the weekend.

Teams will receive CDL Points throughout the weekend. Ten points are awarded for each match victory and different point totals for their ultimate placing in the Home Series Weekend, with an additional 10 points going to the winner.

Here is the breakdown for CDL Points placings.
