Modern Warfare CDL ruleset stops working days before launch event

Due to a patch released on January 22 – just two days before the launch of the Call of Duty League – it appears the CDL ruleset in-game isn’t working properly.

The event is the first in what is to be a multi-hundred million dollar investment, but it may be getting off to a rocky start if they can’t come up with a solution to the issues the January 22 update has raised.

After making a number of significant changes – including “clamping down” on the headshot multiplier, changes to flag capturing in Domination and the Dead Silence field upgrade – it appears players may not be able to use any of it after all.

Domination has historically been a fan-favorite for Call of Duty players, but it’s facing some issues ahead of CDL Launch Weekend.

After Chris ‘Parasite’ Duarte reached out to the devs on Twitter to explain that “the multiplier for multiple players capturing an objective isn’t working still,” Michael ‘Spacely’ Schmale added on to the tweet with his own issue, suggesting the patch is causing more struggles than initially thought.

He says that “if we have to set up the rules manually and not play ‘CDL Domination’ like we just tried, the headshot multiplier comes back along with the pre-patch dead silence.”

This means that whether they set it up themselves or play on the new patch, they will be playing “two completely different games” regardless.

Parasite and Spacely weren’t the only players to express their disappointment or ask questions about the patch. Peirce ‘Gunless’ Hillman of the Chicago Huntsmen simply said “$300m league and we are playing on a patch that we haven’t played a second of for the start of the CDL.”

Meanwhile, Dallas Empire’s James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks took a different outlook, saying that “if you’ve paid attention to the history this happens over 50% of the events.” He went on to say that CoD is about adapting so “here’s to the team that can adapt the best!”

At the time of writing, developers have not responded to Parasite’s original tweet or mentioned any intended fixes for CDL rulesets on the new patch. It seems most likely that the teams in Minnesota will simply play on the new patch and have to overlook the issues with capturing the Domination flag for now.

Regardless, it’s likely that fans will be excited to see top-level gameplay when the event kicks off on January 24. After a few months since the last major Call of Duty event, it’s likely viewers will just be happy to have Call of Duty esports back on their screens.

With Black Ops Cold War just two weeks away from being officially released, Activision and Treyarch have officially unveiled all the PC requirements and recommended specs a fan could dream for, including what you’ll need if you want to run the game on high settings.

Black Ops Cold War is almost here and fans are starting to get hyped for the first-person shooter. With only two weeks left until the game’s official launch, most fans have decided if they are going to be picking it up or if they’re going to be skipping out on this year’s entry.

Up until this point, however, neither Activision or Treyarch given a ton of info about the PC version of the game. That’s now changed as the required and recommended specs have officially been unveiled, as well was the specs you’ll need in order run it on other types of settings.

Black Ops Cold War minimum PC specs

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit or Windows 10 64-bit or higher
  • CPU: Intel Core I3-4340 or AMD FX-6300
  • RAM: 8GB
  • HDD: 50GB for MP only, 175GB for all game modes
  • Video: Nvidia Geforce GTX 670/Geforce GTX 1650/Radeon HD 7950

Black Ops Cold War recommended PC specs

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core I5-2500K or AMD Ryzen R5 1600X
  • RAM: 12GB
  • HDD: 175GB
  • Video: Nvidia Geforce GTX 970/GTX 1660 Super or Radeon R9 390/AMD RX 580

Black Ops Cold War recommended PC specs with ray-tracing

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel I7-8700K or AMD Ryzen 1800X
  • RAM: 16GB
  • HDD: 175GB
  • Video: Nvidia Geforce RTX 3070
Activision released a handy graphic to explain to PC players what they’ll need.

Black Ops Cold War competitive PC specs

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel I7-8700K or AMD Ryzen 1800X
  • RAM: 16GB
  • HDD: 175GB
  • Video: Nvidia Geforce GTX 1080/RTX 3070 or Radeon RX Vega64 graphics

Black Ops Cold War Ultra RTX PC specs

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel I9-9900K or AMD Ryzen 3700X
  • RAM: 16GB
  • HDD: 250GB
  • Video: Nvidia Geforce RTX 3080

As expected, if you want to run the game on extremely high settings, you’re going to need the PC to match it. That being said, the required specs are better than what was required in the beta, with the full game only requiring an I3 processor while the pre-release version needed an I5.

This, however, shouldn’t be surprise, as full versions of games are almost always more optimized than their pre-release counterparts. That being said, it’ll be interesting to see how bad the low-settings PC version looks once it’s live. Here’s hoping that it won’t be too bad.
