Clayster Fears Warzone Could 'Kill The CDL'

Activision

Whilst Activision polishes their solid gold thrones with a green note plucked from the bulging pockets of the diamond-crusted suits, millions of players around the globe lock into their games, whether that be on Zombies, Multiplayer, Campaign, or Warzone.

The developers have found a gold mine in Call of Duty, but now face the conundrum of whether they want to put their eggs in the Warzone basket or that of multiplayer, or share them equally. 

Following their success in the World Series of Warzone, it now appears that the battle royale could be a viable option for an esports league. However, some people are now fearing that the success of Warzone comes with the downfall of the Call of Duty League

Clayster Fears For CDL After World Series Of Warzone

As a three-time world champion of the CDL, and a car crash waiting to happen in Warzone, James "Clayster" Eubanks has now expressed his fear for the league whilst talking to New York Subliners content creator and former teammate Thomas "ZooMaa" Paparatto.

Following the success of the WSOW, Clayster said "I mean, it’s already taken over CoD. It has this past year. I’m saying in terms of the CDL… when Warzone is so popular and so big, how does this function in the CDL landscape?”

“If Warzone wasn’t a thing, that [money] would be going towards multiplayer. I’m not saying none is going to multiplayer, because now it’s a lot different, its a franchise league, but the opportunities are going to become less for multiplayer and more for Warzone, other than the CDL and it’s like how long can the CDL actually survive at this big of a gap?”

Is the CDL really dying?

It's no secret that the CDL viewership is dwindling in recent months, plummeting to around 20,000 in certain games. 

However, Clayster does believe that the CDL is not dead, but there are clear bridges that need to be crossed.

He continued to say "I’m not saying that the CDL is doomed and that it’s shuttering in two years. I don’t believe that. If they want the CDL to survive as a product there has to be a lot more thought put into it in terms of the marketing side, the ranked side, the rewards side.”

The reigning champion has been paraded in Warzone recently, which was a nice marketing scheme by Activision. The Dallas Empire was plastered on the side of the Stadium (before it was blown to smithereens), a technique that many players feel could be improved upon to convert Warzone fans into CDL gurus too. 

Only time will seal the fate of Warzone and the CDL, although surely there is a world where both can live harmoniously...
