Infinity Ward pushed the envelope with Modern Warfare’s iteration of Ground War by increasing the battlefield to accommodate teams two teams of 32 players for the first time in the franchise’s history.
With the inaugural season of the CDL fast approaching, competitive players and audiences have been itching for the first taste of organized matches in the latest CoD entry.
Now Syndicate’s looking to fill that void by possibly organizing a massive event filled with some of the biggest names in Call of Duty.
“Bruh.. I wanna host the first-ever Call of Duty Ground War Invitational,” Syndicate said. “All your favourite COD streamers and YouTubers thrown into a 32v32 game.”
The prize for the winning side would be a “generous donation” to the victor’s charity of choice, and what started as a suggestion has been attracting massive personalities in the space.

The event would be a showcase match between representatives of the United States and the United Kingdom. A fan chimed in with the idea of making it “US vs UK,” to which Syndicate replied: “I was legit just thinking that!”
CoD has an enormous presence in both regions, and filling the server with top guns from the States and Kingdom would make for an incredible event.
Popular CoD content creator and member of the CDL’s New York Subliners Doug ‘Censor’ Martin confirmed his interest in the event saying “I’m in,” as well as NA org eUnited.

While not confirmed to go, Austin 'Pamaj' Pamajewon had a humorous back-and-forth with Syndicate which could serve as pre-event smack talk if the FaZe Clan member joins in on the friendly contest.

Even though Syndicate was just putting the possibility of the event forward, things got real when MLG legend and CEO of Esports Engine Adam ‘MrAdamAp’ Apicella told the YouTuber that he can “build” the event for him.
It looks like the proposed event has a platform to be built on, and as far as a venue goes, President of Esports Stadium in Arlington, Jonathon Oudthone said they could even host it.
What started as an idea is already coming together, so it might not be long before Syndicate puts together this Call of Duty event the likes of which have never been seen before.
