While there have been many changes to the CWL ruleset over the last few seasons, there’s still one change that some are looking to be made.

In almost every major esport around, coaches are able to communicate with their teams during tournaments and events, whether it be in-game or in between individual rounds.

Call of Duty is one of the major exceptions to this rule, as coaches are unable to give any sort of coaching during matches.

The issue was brought to light by eUnited coach Brian ‘Saintt’ Baroska who posted a thread on Twitter wondering why the rules haven’t been changed given that other major shooters allow extensive coaching.

Saintt went on to talk about the difficulties with the current state of coaching in the CWL, explaining the fact that a coach would need to walk up on stage after a map “and physically take one of [their] player’s headset off” in order to give any sort of feedback.

He then ended his thread by saying it was “ridiculous” that he and OpTic Gaming coach Tyler ‘TeeP’ Polchow had to watch the Grand Finals of CWL Vegas from the crowd rather than help their team out.

Saintt wasn’t alone in his thoughts on the matter, as a number of coaches chimed in with their approval of his sentiments.

While there’s been no official response from the CWL, there’s still quite some time until the next open event starts up in Fort Worth, Texas on March 15, allowing time for some adjustments.
