It’s Thursday October 26, 2017 and this is your weekly early morning eSports & Gaming briefing.
 
With $4.2 million at stake, Major League Gaming revealed plans for the Call of Duty World League in 2018, featuring Call of Duty: WWII and launch with the CWL Dallas Global Open on Dec. 8. The season will offer six LAN Global Open events overall (including events in New Orleans and Atlanta), as well as a new CWL National Circuit, the CWL Pro League at the MLG Arena, the return of the Call of Duty World League Championship and the largest total prize pool in Call of Duty Esports history, $4.2 million. The CWL Pro League competition, meanwhile, kicks off on Jan. 23 and will feature two divisions of eight teams competing at the MLG Arena in Columbus.
 
This season will also introduce the CWL National Circuit, composed of eight online leagues in Australia, Canada, France, Italy, Germany, Spain, UK and US. Throughout the four stages of online competition, teams will compete for CWL Pro Points, travel and accommodation to a Global Open and, in the final stage, entry to the Last Chance Qualifier for the 2018 Call of Duty World League Championship.
 
 “We can’t wait to start the new season of the Call of Duty World League. Beginning in Dallas in December and continuing all season long, CWL players and fans are in for the biggest season yet in Call of Duty Esports history,” said Executive Vice President and General Manager of Call of Duty, Rob Kostich. “This season will feature Call of Duty: WWII, and offer more opportunities to compete, view and experience the CWL through more open LAN events, the highly competitive Pro League and the all-new CWL National Circuit. This is shaping up to be a great season full of exciting new competition, rivalries and great gameplay.”

The eight teams in each region will battle for ten weeks in the run-up to the Mid-Season Brawl, pausing after five weeks for the Eastern Clash (Korea and China plus a team from Taiwan) or the Western Clash (Europe and North America). The same sequence repeats over the second half of the year, except teams will be striving for the championship at the HGC Finals. In a twist for 2018, Clash winners will open up an additional spot for another team from their home region at the Mid-Season Brawl or HGC Finals, depending on which half of the year the Clash in question occurs in.

POWER PLAYERS – Bob Ruhland of Buffalo Wild Wings
 
Buffalo Wild Wings continues to blaze trails in the esports and gaming industries, serving as one of the first partners for ELEAGUE and recently adding partnerships with Team Dignitas and Activision in recent weeks. As an early non-endemic brand entrenching itself into the space with consumers, Cynopsis asked Bob Ruhland , VP of Marketing at Buffalo Wild Wings, about the lessons the company has learned along the way.
 
Ruland on lessons learned: Our sponsorship of ELEAGUE was our first entry into esports and it taught us a lot. Fans’ passion is something that really stood out, from their constant digital engagement with games to the lengths they were willing to go to watch their favorite teams and tournaments in person. We also learned there was big appetite in the industry to have a physical location where gamers could come together to enjoy streams and meet with other fans.
 
On challenges: When we first entered the gaming space it was new territory for us and required education across our network of restaurants to ensure we were providing a positive experience for gamers when they came in to watch live streams. Since then, we have been listening to the gaming community to improve our activations and in-restaurant experience as well as continuing to educate our staff about the world of esports – all in an effort to provide an experience that sports fans have come to expect from Buffalo Wild Wings.
 
On the deal with Dignitas: A partnership with an esports team came from the continued desire to connect with the rapidly growing esports community through new and exciting experiences. After initial research, it was clear that Team Dignitas would be the perfect partner. Not only are we both internationally recognized brands but we both support and encourage fans’ passion for competition and have a desire to provide them with the best viewing experience.
 
On the CoD promotion: We have worked with various gaming companies for a few years now, conducting special promotions for highly-anticipated releases. Last year, for example, we offered our fans the opportunity to redeem exclusive content and game modes for Titanfall 2. The opportunity with Activision came about through continued partnership discussion with multiple publishers and was attractive to us as the game and Activision have a strong following and track record year over year. Our new Call of Duty: WWII promotion allows Blazin’ Rewards loyalty program members to redeem points for 2XP during multiplayer modes, now through November 30.
