The inaugural season of the Call of Duty League (CDL) is in full swing. A new era for Call of Duty esports sees 12 brand-new franchise teams compete in Home Series tournaments across the globe. They will earn cash and CDL Points, to determine their respective place in the league table.

In this article, you will find an up-to-date league table, the current set of rules used in competitive play, and the schedule for the rest of the season!

Basic Ruleset

As of writing (February 24th) the ruleset that is used for Call of Duty esports looks like this:

Domination: two five-minute rounds, the team with the highest score wins.

Hardpoint: 5 minutes on the game clock, the first team to 250 or the team with the highest score after five minutes wins.

Search & Destroy: First team to win six rounds wins, 1 minute 30 second rounds, five-second bomb plant time and a 7.5 second bomb defuse time.

A full list of all the settings for each game mode can be found on the Call of Duty League website.

Restricted Items

Competitive Call of Duty differs a lot from the casual side of the game. There are a lot of items that have been restricted by the league alongside the “Gentlemen’s Agreement” between the players. Known as the GA, it builds on the restrictions from the official rules and includes the blanket ban of killstreaks, suppressors and a specific amount of utility that can be used in Search & Destroy.
