Call of Duty: Mobile Worlds might be your instant ticket to beach living
Think of all the things that you could with 2 million dollars. Two million American dollars that is, which in Canada means over $2.5 million dollars. You could buy yourself a waterfront shock in Tofino, B.C. and then spend the rest of your days walking the beach and stuffing your face with Dungeness crab. You could buy not only a ‘57 Chevy, 1970 Vanishing Point Dodge Challenger, and black ‘79 Trans Am with a gold eagle on the hood, but an East Van warehouse in which to store them. And you’d never have to work again. Time to sign up for the Call of Duty: Mobile World Championship.
Game developer Activision has announced the 2021 edition of the high-profile event, and the stakes are high. If you guessed that there will be $US2 million on the table, you guessed correctly.
Before you go and get too excited, that prize money won’t be given out in one chunk. Money will be distributed to top finishes in the Regional Playoffs and the World Championship Finals. Don’t get too disappointed though because it’s still being worked out as to whether Regional Partner Tournaments will have additional and separate prize pools. There will also be special rewards for those who participate in in-game competitions.
The path to independent wealth will start with a Stage 1 and Stage 2 where players start in Call of Duty: Mobile Ranked Mode. Stage 1 will featured four weekends of Solo Play after which top dogs will advance to Stage 2 Team Play.
In Stage 2 players will be part of a team that participates in ranked matches to place on a team play leaderboard. The top teams on that board then advance to Stage 3 regional qualifiers. Stage 3 and Stage 4 play feature elimination-style bracketed tournaments that then take us to the Stage 5 World Championship Finals.
Sound like something that you can’t wait to clean up in as a participant?
