CDL Players Call For Activision To Change Unfair Champs Format

The Call of Duty League is just one stage away from the 2021 World Championships, where one team will be crowned as champions, and 11 others will be licking their wounds.

Four of the 11 onlookers won't even be in attendance for the Championships though, as Activision revamped the format to only host eight teams.

As Atlanta FaZe secured the top seed for the championships after making all four Major Grand Finals so far (winning two), some of the teams have already written off their season, with their spot at Champs being diminished.

Now, the CDL players are rallying together to get Activision to change the format, giving players ample opportunity to make a famous miracle run.

CDL Players Rally Against Unfair Champs Format

Some of the best players in the world have now hit out at the format. With a total of twelve World Championship rings between them, the ever vocal Ian "Crimsix" Porter, Damon "Karma" Barlow, Austin "SlasheR" Liddicoat, James "Clayster" Eubanks, and Patrick "Aches" Price have taken to social media to discuss the problematic format.

Karma took to Twitter to showcase his OpTic Gaming run which took 10 wins on the World Championship stage to become crowned champions; in the current format, you can win it all in three games.

The OpTic Gaming triumph saw them take on a range of teams like Splyce (now Toronto Ultra), FaZe, Envy (now Dallas Empire), and Luminosity Gaming (now Seattle Surge), including a bracket reset in the Grand Finals with the given bonus to Team Envy who progressed to the finals through the upper bracket.

The current format also has no room for an upper bracket advantage, leaving whichever team progressing through the winners' bracket to have no rewards. 

Clayster voiced his opinion on the format during the Stage 4 Grand Finals, insinuating that the finalists should be playing more than one game each on the final day. 

Both Aches and SlasheR also criticised the format, simply stating that it's got to change and doesn't feel like a World Championship anymore.

Crimsix Calls For A Change In World Championships Format

Reigning World Champion, Crimsix, has rallied support from the community, after directly tweeting the CoD League in a bid to allow all 12 teams to compete in the Championships.

The simple statement of "Let all 12 teams compete at Champs" has now gone viral, with a wealth of support from the players - most of who are already qualified.

The opinion comes off the back of a YouTube video from Sam "Octane" Larew, whose Seattle Surge side would need to double their points tally and more in the final stage to qualify for the Championships. After being hindered online all year, Surge showed they have the LAN talent in their display at Stage 4, falling just two rounds of Search and Destroy short of upsetting OpTic Chicago.

Activision and the Call of Duty League have yet to respond to their players' concerns, although their 12-team format has been actively used in each stage during this season and the 2020 campaign.
