The format for next years CWL needs changed. It's taken it's toll on the EU competitive scene from the bottom to the top. When the GPL teams are always away, practice is terrible for the GPL teams at home and amateur teams all round. Making the quality from top to bottom worse.— Mark Bryceland (@MarkyB) March 13, 2018
Marky's main complaint seems to be the lack of practice and competition for any teams outside of the Pro League while those that are in it are away competing for weeks on end. Teams in North America certainly get the most opportunity in terms of online practice, competition, and LAN events. However, with most of the world's top teams all coming from North America, it is hard to argue against a slight NA focus. While the veteran's suggestion of an online league could possibly fix the issues that he is describing, it would feel like a massive step back in competitive CoD's evolution. It would also likely result in an even larger disconnect between the top NA teams and top EU teams.
An online league format within Europe that then runs into an International Playoff of the best 16 teams in the World is the ideal solution for me.— Mark Bryceland (@MarkyB) March 13, 2018
