CoD pros slam CDL after Halo Infinite success

After the very noisy launch of Halo Infinite and the first competitive tournaments, professional Call of Duty gamers have singled out Activision’s “incompetence” to provide a true esports circuit.

For several years now, Call of Duty has proven itself to be almost like the spiritual successor to Halo, notably establishing itself as the first esports game on console.

However, with the launch of Halo Infinite and the success of the first competitive event that garnered a lot of positive feedback from longtime fans, much of the CoD community has been apprehensive about the future of the Call of. Duty League.

Halo Infinite’s first esports tournament was a huge success.

Throughout the first Halo Infinite esports tournament which was open to everyone, many Call of Duty players clearly enjoyed the experience of this new game.

100 Thieves founder and former CoD pro player Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag was notably one of the first to speak out, saying Halo’s return to esports “was nothing short of ‘incredible ”, praising the“ balanced maps, ranked mode and esports circuit of multi-million dollar tournaments ”.

Former CoD World Champion Tyler “TeeP” Polchow who is now a Warzone streamer for OpTic, also praised Halo after the tournament by saying that it is “so refreshing to play a balanced game”.

While Halo and esports have received much praise, some have compared this game to Call of Duty and the CDL.

Veteran Chris “Parasite” Duarte said: “Watching the CoD competition die is like watching half of my life literally vanish“.

Former pro Thomas “ZooMaa” Paparatto, simply mentioned Vanguard developer Sledgehammer Games in a tweet saying “We have to talk“.

LA Thieves player Sam “Octane” Larew meanwhile wrote a post a little closer to CoD fans, explaining that “COD needs a kick in the butt because we’re down 5-0 in a 1v4“.

Although Halo Infinite is still in its early stages, we have already seen many former and current pro players such as Karma, Clayster, Dqvee and many more enjoying the game’s first tournament. .

The current esports situation on Call of Duty seems never to have been so chaotic. The members of Activision-Blizzard will therefore have to quickly get to work if they do not want Halo Infinite to become the new joystick esports game on the front of the stage.
