Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.

League Play was, finally, released on February 21 for PlayStation 4 after players had to wait four months for the mode to be added.

Plenty of players, both pros and casual, have already voiced their frustrations against how the mode rewards those players who simply play the most - even if they don't have the skill to match the rank they achieve.

The OpTic Gaming boys have already dabbled into League Play - but Scump isn't a fan.

The OpTic Gaming star tweeted: “Imagine making a ranked playlist that rewards play-time instead of actual skill @Treyarch.”

Scump isn’t alone in his criticism of the League Play system as plenty of pros voiced their frustrations on the day the mode was released, and in response to Scump.

Team Envy captain Patrick ‘ACHES’ Price replied to his long-time rival with a 'mind-blown' emoji, to which Scump added “truly,” with the pair clearly in agreement over the current League Play setup.

eUnited’s Tyler ‘aBeZy’ Pharris chimed in along the same lines as ACHES, tweeting that he was in disbelief at what had been released. 

In typically hilarious fashion, Team Reciprocity’s Bradley ‘wuskin’ Marshall added: “Bro, them Euros have some serious passion."

"I was on 8k points thinking I’m doing well and then I see weeman on 20k. My head nearly fell off.”

It remains to be seen if Treyarch will monitor the pro player’s suggestions for changes and implement them, or stick to their own plans that have likely been in place for some time.
