The company that designed and produced the Call of Duty World League Championship rings were attempting to sell replicas on their website.
The discovery was made by current CWL World Champion Patrick ‘ACHES’ Price, who posted screenshots of the Baron website on his Twitter account with the caption ‘WHAT IS THIS”.
Rings were made available to purchase at $995, and customers were allowed to customize the rings. The rings feature the CWL logo on the front, along with the WW2 logo on one side, and the CWL Champs trophy on the other.
In a comment posted on Reddit, MLG Vice President of League and Event Operations Adam Apicella took to Reddit to confirm that replica rings weren’t scheduled to be available to order, simply stating; “This is not allowed.”
In a separate comment on the same thread, an MLG employee confirmed that the web pages were made live by accident, and that the pages had been removed. It seems the listings were created to showcase their work, and the pages were never actually intended to go live on the Baron site.
The website had two variations of the ring available on their site, one titled “OpTic Gaming Championship Ring”, and one with the more accurate title, “Evil Geniuses Championship Ring”.
The real versions of the Championship rings were created for the 2018 CWL Championships, and given to the four members of the Evil Geniuses squad which one the tournament back in August.
