CoD: BO3
« on: 10:34 AM - 09/24/15 »
I'm thinking this is as good of time as any to start an official release thread.  I see esports is coming out with a new "world league" and also a "challenge league". I'm wondering what the initial thoughts are on this for our competitive community or is it to early to tell? I'm curious to hear your thoughts on how this could effect MLG as well. Being new to the ps4 does esports support both consoles?

Here's a link for those that want to read about it.

Saw this. There isnt a lot of information about it (rules / ladder setup / etc)... but from the information that they DID give it sounds exactly like MLG pro league / Gamebattles.

Always good to have another league.

Dale have you softened JR to prepare him for Nobodys return?

PSN 3.0 Update has some cool features coming for this kind of thing. You can join events and be notified when they're starting "Streams" also I think you can join through the PSN directly into these "events" could have the potential to be eSports orientated.

Looking forward to seeing how Arena gets implemented and looking forward to having a game to play again.  Hopefully its not a complete flop because surely if they are throwing money at competetive they must want a decent product to do so with.

I see that there will not be a classic play list for bo3. The thrusting isn't as much of a game changer compared to AW so I think it's a good move.

What I'm wondering is this. Will the World League be built into the game, like league play from BO2? Or is is a site you will have to go to in order to compete like MLG Gamebattles?

I'm curious on this as well.  Being Activision is dedicating a team to run this program, I'm guessing it will be integrated into the game menu to help promote it.

I would love to see a competitive MLG type league built into the game, however there are a few reason why it scares me. The main one being no one to enforce rules or DDOS attacks. Which was one of the biggest issues with BO2 League Play. MLG has admins and a community match resolution center to help with rules and game disputes. Leaving it built into the game would mean very little support for glitches, hackers, and DDOS'ers to rule it.

A positive of it being built into the game would be a greater sum of players trying it out. Which is always good for competitive. I guess no point in speculating though until we find out where it's actually going to be ran.

All your concerns are legit. Activision obviously sees an opportunity to make money with this otherwise they wouldn't do it.  So hopefully they do some research and prepare for these issues otherwise this league will fail big and everybody will stay with MLG and GB.

Hopefully the dedicated Activision team will be on top of this but who knows with Activision.....

I doubt it will be in built for BO3 as they have already unless its built as a subset of Arena (which is what we have been told the new league play mode is called).

If UMG can run alongside MLG i am also sure both of those leagues will still have their own tournaments although they could lose some interest if Activision make their system work.

You comp guys will have to let us know your views pre and post release

It's been confirmed that there will be no riot shields in BO3.  They never really bothered me to much with the modes I play but I know some teams would spam them in S&D and other objective based modes.  They ran their course IMO.......

And then they built a game called Rainbow Six Siege completely based around riot sheilds. And spoil a potentially good (alternative between COD and CS).
