 The inaugural 2020 season of the newly-formed CoD League is now underway and we've got everything you need to know, including updated standings, the full tournament schedule, the official format and ruleset, and more.


UPDATE - Due to the ongoing global issues, the CDL has announced that all events will be played online for the 2020 season.


2020 might go down as the most important year for competitive CoD, as the esport debuted its new home-and-away franchise-based Call of Duty League. Featuring 12 teams based in 11 cities, the CDL represents the new era of CoD esports, made up of three important pillars: the pro circuit, amateur Challengers division, and the fans.

The 2020 CDL season is made up of 13 regular-season events — the Launch Weekend and 12 other tournaments that will be hosted by the different franchises.

A full schedule for all of these events can be found below, including the teams that have been chosen to compete at each.

LAUNCH WEEKEND - MINNESOTA RØKKR - COVERAGE HUB

Dates: January 24-26

The first-ever event of the CDL was also the only one that didn't feature a tournament-style format. All 12 teams participated and each played two matches against pre-determined opponents.

Four teams (FaZe, Huntsmen, ROKKR, and Legion) finished the weekend 2-0 while another four (Empire, Subliners, OpTic, and Surge) went winless at 0-2. Each win was worth 10 points, setting up the undefeated teams as early leaders in the season standings.

Teams: 

  • Atlanta FaZe (2-0)

LONDON ROYAL RAVENS HOME SERIES - COVERAGE HUB

The first tournament-style event of the 2020 CDL season saw Chicago Huntsmen crowned champions. Their 3-0 domination of the Empire in the grand final was their third win over Dallas just at this event alone and their fourth consecutive victory in the rivalry to start the season.

The top-four was rounded off with the two European sides - hosts London Royal Ravens and Paris Legion - who both crashed out in the semifinals after making it out of Group B.

ATLANTA FAZE HOME SERIES - COVERAGE HUB

The CDL World Tour stopped at Atlanta, Georgia for its third event, and the Atlanta FaZe became the first franchise in the league's young history to win as the hometown team.

As expected, they made it all the way to the Grand Final, however, contrary to most predicted, their opponents ended up not being the Chicago Huntsmen, who were stunningly upset in the semifinals and handed their first-ever loss by the Florida Mutineers.

FaZe took care of business in the final against the Mutineers, destroying them in 3-0 fashion. The top-four was rounded off by Minnesota ROKKR, who too were an underdog coming out of the group stage.

LOS ANGELES GUERRILLAS & OPTIC GAMING LA HOME SERIES - COVERAGE HUB

The fourth Home Series of the 2020 season took place in Los Angeles, CA, hosted by the two hometown teams Guerrillas and OpTic Gaming. Dallas Empire were crowned victors, defeating Minnesota ROKKR in what ended up being an intense Grand Final.

Atlanta FaZe, who were heavily favored to win the event, ended up falling in the semifinals, taking just their first loss of the season. On the flip side, OpTic, who came into the event as the lone winless team, snagged two victories and made it all the way to the semis, a huge improvement over their dreadful start to the campaign.

Dallas Empire won their first Home Series at CDL Los Angeles.

DALLAS EMPIRE HOME SERIES (Online)

The first tournament since the CDL restructured to an online format turned out to be the most surprising one of the season so far, as Florida Mutineers claimed victory despite being the fifth-best team at the event in terms of standings.

Favorites Chicago Huntsmen and Dallas Empire both lost in the semifinals, to Mutineers and Minnesota ROKKR respectively, and the Grand Final turned out to be relatively one-sided, as Florida dominated the last three maps to win 3-1.

Florida Mutineers became the fourth different team to win a CDL event this season.

CHICAGO HUNSTMEN HOME SERIES (Online)

A tournament featuring the top three teams in the CDL was bound to finish with one of them on top, and it was Dallas Empire who became the first side to win two championships this season.

The victory was undoubtedly a statement one - not only did they finally get their first win against rivals Chicago Huntsmen in dominant 3-0 fashion, but they also defeated the vaunted Atlanta FaZe 3-1 in the Grand Final.

The Dallas Empire became the first team in CDL history to win multiple tournaments.

FLORIDA MUTINEERS HOME SERIES (Online)

CDL Florida was full of shocks and twists, but the one thing that didn't come as a surprise was Atlanta FaZe being crowned champions, becoming the second team after Dallas Empire to multiple tournament wins this season.

They took care of OpTic Gaming LA 3-1 in the Grand Final, a series that had its fair share of back-and-forth action. Despite the loss, OGLA put in their best performance of the season this weekend, by far, looking like a completely different squad after what had been a very disappointing campaign so far.

SEATTLE SURGE HOME SERIES (Online)

Tournament favorites Chicago Huntsmen were crowned champions at CDL Seattle, becoming the third team this season (Dallas & Atlanta) to win multiple Home Series events.

They navigated the event relatively stress-free, as none of their four opponents - Paris, Minnesota, New York, or London - managed to push them to a game five. Speaking of Royal Ravens, although they fell in the Grand Final, the decision to bring in Zer0 seems to have already paid off, as they managed to make it farther than any other tournament this season.

MINNESOTA RØKKR HOME SERIES (Online)

The most exciting and intense Home Series so far saw Florida Mutineers become champions for the second time this season after they took down Chicago Huntsmen, Dallas Empire, and Atlanta FaZe over the course of the weekend.

The tournament had enough twists and turns to satisfy any fan: eight of the matches went to a Game 5, there were four upsets, and three reverse-sweeps, all unprecedented numbers for a CDL event.

PARIS LEGION HOME SERIES (Online)

The Florida Mutineers solidified their status as one of the league's best teams by cruising to another championship at CDL Paris, becoming the first team to win three tournaments and also go back-to-back.

Their Grand Final performances vs Atlanta FaZe was especially amazing; not only did they pull off a comfortable 3-0 sweep, but their 235-70 victory in game three was the most one-sided Domination we've seen all year.

NEW YORK SUBLINERS HOME SERIES (Online)

A statement performance from New York Subliners as they defended their own Home Series and became the fifth different team to win a CDL tournament this season. A dominant 3-0 win over Chicago Huntsmen in the Grand Final has many thinking it's time to consider NYSL as a elite-level threat.

The event also featured the first-ever meeting between Huntsmen and Atlanta FaZe, a highly-anticipated matchup that ended up being extremely one-sided as Chicago swept them in dominant fashion.

LONDON ROYAL RAVENS HOME SERIES (Online)

It was pure domination from Dallas Empire as they dropped just one map on their way to becoming the second team to win three CDL Home Series this season.

Not only did they rip apart Paris Legion in a lopsided 3-0 Grand Final victory, but Empire also swept defending champion New York Subliner and three-time tournament winners, Florida Mutineers, all while their entire lineup finished with positive K/Ds.

TORONTO ULTRA HOME SERIES (Online)

With the Toronto Home Series arguably being the most stacked event of the season, very few expected the Ultra to be the last ones standing. Not only did Toronto prove everyone wrong, but they did it in impressive fashion, taking down Atlanta FaZe, Dallas Empire, and Chicago Huntsmen in the process.

It didn't come easy, however; they had several matches that could have gone either way, including their 3-2 victory over FaZe in the Grand Final. The series went all the way down to a game five, round 11, which took a clutch 1v2 from star-man Methodz to secure.

Format & Point Structure

The Call of Duty League 2020 season features 13 regular-season events and Championship Weekend, where the World Champions for the inaugural campaign will be decided.

With the exception of Launch Weekend, which all 12 teams attended and played two matches each, all of these events are tournaments with a straight-up winner and placements.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=loRHKqjSVH0

CDL 2020 TOURNAMENT FORMAT

Each of the 12 regular-season tournaments will feature eight of the 12 franchises competing, so not every team will attend each event.

At each tournament, the eight teams will be split into two groups of four. The teams will play each other and the two squads that win two matches in each group will advance to the single-elimination bracket, from which the event's champion will be determined.

Each victory a team gets at these tournaments will be worth 10 points, with an additional 10 points going to the overall winner. This means that teams can earn up to 50 points by winning an event.

  • 1st – 50 CDL Points + $50,000
  • 2nd – 30 CDL Points + $30,000
  • 3rd/4th – 20 CDL Points + $10,000
  • 5th/6th – 10 CDL Points
  • 7th/8th – 0 CDL Points

The CDL is a star-studded league, so getting into the playoffs is not a sure-thing for most teams.

CDL PLAYOFFS AND CHAMPIONSHIP WEEKEND

On May 19, the CDL announced changes to their original plan for the Championship Weekend in August. In this new format, all 12 teams will make it into the Championship tournament, as opposed to only the top eight, and their seeding in the bracket will be determined by where they finish in the regular-season standings.

  • 1st and 2nd place automatically seeded into Round 3 of the Winner’s Bracket
  • 3rd and 4th place automatically seeded into Round 2 of the Winner’s Bracket
  • 5th-8th place seeded into Round 1 of the Winner’s Bracket
  • 9-12th place seeded into Round 1 of the Elimination Bracket

As a result, the prize pool distribution has also been tweaked:

  • League Champion—$1.5 million
  • Runner-up—$900,000
  • 3rd place—$600,000
  • 4th place—$450,000
  • 5th place—$300,000 (2 teams)
  • 7th place—$175,000 (2 teams)
  • 9th place—$100,000 (2 teams)

The official bracket for the $4.6 million CDL Playoffs and Championship Weekend.

All of the Playoff matches will be best-of-five as usual, but the Championship match is set to be a best-of-nine, with the team from the winners bracket starting up 1-0.

  • Map 1—Hardpoint
  • Map 2—Search and Destroy
