Good news for Toronto Ultra Fans as Call of Duty returns this weekend
Live events have been removed from gameplay, but that’s not stopping the Call of Duty League for the 2020 season.
Because it features 12 teams based in cities spread across four countries, the league was one of the first to realize that COVID-19 was going to wreak havoc on the 2020 schedule. Teams with Canadian ties that have been affected include the Toronto Ultra and the Seattle Surge, which falls under the umbrella of the Canucks ownership group.
The Call of Duty season kicked off with the 12 teams competing live before thousands of fans. And then the season was abruptly put on hold, as social isolation become increasingly prudent around the world.
The Call of Duty elite are back in action on April 10, with the league moving to online competition and broadcast production format.
The Dallas Home Series Weekend can be seen live this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday on Call of Duty’s YouTube channel, featuring eight teams—the Chicago Huntsmen, Dallas Empire, Florida Mutineers, Los Angeles Guerrillas, Minnesota Røkkr, Paris Legion, Seattle Surge, and Toronto Ultra.
As with other eSports leagues right now, the online format has players and production personnel competing from locked-down locations of their choice.
