Set Your Loadout for Call of Duty Championship 2014

Back for 2014, Xbox is once again presenting the Call of Duty Championship.

Thirty-two teams from around the world will vie for their share of a million bucks at the Los Angeles Championship event this Spring, which will be broadcast live via Xbox Live and MLG.tv                                   .

But we’re a long way from the finals. Your first step to glory and rewards are the online qualifiers. Head on over to CallofDuty.com/esports for details on how you can get involved and join me in LA.

Good luck

    so when are they going to show real games cod is so daft maybe some one should tell them there are other better great games out there or not because if you do they mite die of shock

    • shanafan

      And what games come to your mind as “tournament” games?

      • NerdRage

        peggel and how about kinect animals?

        • deadbox102

          Kinect animals?

          • NerdRage

            you could also have a big kinect adventures competion

      • That Guy

        Battlefield, Forza, anything but CoD. Activision had poor sales for Ghosts because people are finally getting that stale taste from it, including myself. If the games keep getting worse like they have been then no one will buy them anymore and the series will be cancelled entirely.

        To be honest…

        A Happy Wars tournament (with prizes) would be nice. 15 vs. 15 matches are just epic. Could you even get enough teams together with 15 gamers per team to do that?

      • Dylan

        Starcraft, the most popular tournament game in the world.

  • Danny Hogan

    COD is the same old game over and over, the only DLC they release is MAPS jeez! Hopefully this next gen there will be a new FPS franchise thats both innovative and new. What about soldier of fortune ???

    • That Guy

      Maybe its because I played Rainbow 6 and Ghost Recon 1st but Soldier of Fortune wasn’t all that impressive.

  • IntenSePinda

    CoD died when (THE REAL) Infinity Ward left. Since then it’s a simple copy/paste money industry done by Bobby Kotick.

    • shanafan

      Black Ops 1 and 2 are amazing games.

      • evilfangs .

        Haha Blops 1 was boring and 2 was the worst one ever.

        • That Guy

          Wrong, Ghosts is way worse than Black Ops 2.

          • ElektroDragon

            Hell no.. how could it be bad? You kill astronauts in spaaaace. And there’s aliens at the end right? That’s better than any other CoD plot I can think of.

      • That Guy

        1 yes, 2 no, 2 was bad.

      • Jeremy Filth

        Black ops 1 was great.

  • Nate Welles

    *sigh* I miss the golden ages. Halo 2 is the best multiplayer game i’ve ever played. I don’t think anything will top that. The amount of awesome people i met through that game and would just pull all nighters with until our bodies shut down was unreal. Superbouncing, bxr, quad shot, the community in general. The pinnacle of Xbox Live. Rest in peace sweet prince.

    • Disturbed_Court_Jester

      Halo 3 > Halo 2

      …imo at least.

    • Lucky13X

      If you had Windows Vista and installed it in time, you could still be playing Halo 2 with us before the shut down of Games for Windows Live with a 360 controller.

    • Bush

      party/private chat killed off everything that was fun about halo2 when halo3 hit. the banter before and after a game in halo2 between the two teams was great.

      all gone now. halo, the reason to own an xbox with live flushed down the toilet with the last installment.

      on the plus side halo2 should be releasing this year hopefully without halo4’s craptacular multiplayer.

      • Nate Welles

        Agree 100%

  • Lucas Sanches Cestari

    does someone know when the first map pack will be released?

  • Jason Lafitte

    Unreal Tournament on PC, that was the best ever.

  • Brian Ghattas

    Presented in 720p. Yay.


      You don’t like it in 720p go play the laggy screen tearing 1080p version on the PS4.

  • That Guy

    Who cares when Ghosts is such a bad game? I’ve never played a multiplayer game for 2 weeks and then never again till this game. I miss Infinity Ward. The real one. At least they moved on to Titanfall. Hope its good unlike Ghosts.

    • ryder4life22187

      You held out longer than I did. I’m lucky if I logged 5hrs of multiplayer on it and gave up.

      • evilfangs .

        I’m stuck playing Ghosts. I’ve got no other game to play

        • todd Wright

          killer instinct???

          • evilfangs .

            I only have the free version and although the d-pad is much better on the X1 controller it’s still not perfect for fast action fighting games


      Titanfall maps can be packed with nearly 50 combatants including AI, AI 38 and non AI is only 6vs6.This is next gen?

  • Beano

    I would play Ghosts for $2

  • Realmusik Recordz

    Halo 4 tournament was epic!!! Halo 4 muliplayer go hard.

  • Realmusik Recordz

    Im glad to read about upcoming updates!!! Bring back notifications…360 dashboard and guide button

  • Kieran

    I don’t get gamers, its by far the easiest shooter on any platform, but gamers love it. I didn’t get Ghosts and likely never will. I prefer shooting games with some difficulty.

    Battlefield 4, Gears of War, Halo been the obvious examples on console.

    Titanfall, i hoping is not easy, i want a challenge.

    • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

      im hoping titanfall to be a e-sport oriented game

  • disqus_icUCvMAJ5v

    I find the current state of the Xbox One unacceptable!

    Instead of corporate spin about how they’re listening I want MS to announce when we can expect these issues to be fixed.

    I’m talking about party and chat functions as well as support for surround sound headphones! Those are the main ones but there’s still a laundry list of other issues.

    I don’t want announcements about what things are coming up, I want to know when they’re going to fix what I already paid for!

    I hope others join me, I’m not buying another piece of software until these outstanding issue are fixed. That goes for Titanfall as well, I can’t even imagine playing Titanfall listening to it in stereo from my crappy TV speakers while shouting at my Kinect or using that piece of garbage pack in mic.

    • fwdkiller

      I agree xbox one needs to be fixed asap. My ps4 game invtes are perfect.

  • ilovegoogleglass

    Major we truly need Dolby Digital codec now for the Xbox One… Listening to “Bass” focused songs sound horrible….

  • That Guy

    Why don’t you ever post the deal of the week earlier on here anymore? Also Fighters Within was supposed to show the power of Kinect 2.0? Really? Kinect 2.0 must really suck then since its the worst(fighting) game I’ve ever played, even if I only played it at my friends.

  • todd Wright

    why not have a tournament for something that takes skill/is fun

    • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

      because battlefield 4 is full of bug/glitch right now :O)
      COD i’m no longer a fan, but it does take skill, personnal lonewolf, skill. The ghost version ain’t as bad as mw3 and ops2 honestly

  • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

    @Major Nelson – isn’t your blog supposed to be family oriented ??? i’m a bit tired of those “league of angels” bouncing baloon advertisement on your blog….

    • That Guy

      Good point

    • NerdRage

      get an add blocker you genius
