The first season of League Play is now underway in Call of Duty: Black Ops 2

Treyarch has announced that the first season of League Play for the multiplayer mode of “Call of Duty: Black Ops 2” is now underway. League Play is a new competition within the game that pits opponents, whether they are a solo player or part of a team, against similarly ranked teams in a new tournament mode. There are several category divisions of play for varying team sizes where players can gain rank inside different subdivisions of the “Call of Duty: Black Ops 2” League Play mode.

Each competitor will be given a rank that will remain hidden until the end of the season. Winning matches will increase a player’s rank, while losing a match will lower it. Each week, a bonus pool will give players additional points for their first few wins of the week. This bonus is scheduled to reset every Sunday. (Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

I don't like how individual play means nothing in League Play. I mean, you can get stuck with a team of crappy players, finish 30-5, carry the whole team, and lose by 1 kill, and you get nothing of any kind of reward.

Yes wins are the best. But why does a guy away from his controller on a team that wins, get to rank up? It's just weird.

It's ok until people start rage quitting. Then you're left in a team of 2 or 3 against a full team of 6 with little chance of winning.

no i wasnt. by first game i mean I havent played cod a whole lot. I got steamrolled. Not only did i have no upgrades, but I also sucked....

Have to say, this was a great addition to cod and can only hope that other developers get given the freedom to explore too. Hate cod as much as you want (I still hate it btw) but you can't deny it it's place at the top.. other games (Halo 4 comes to mind) are too busy playing catch up copying the basic features of cod games while Treyarch are raising the standard in what is possible in fps games.

It's been ages since we've had a system in place where people have good goals to work towards, Halo 3's level system being the last game I can think of. Ever since then, it's just been some stupid leveling up race and prestige nonsense. We need more stuff like league play to give competitive people something real to work towards where winning is the main goal.

I had to laugh man really, Halo 4 playing catch up.... hahahaha.. Halo multiplayer has been BEAST for awhile now, where you been?!
aiBreeze  +   689d ago
Well it seems not everyone considers it "BEAST", seeing as the population has been in steady decline. Halo has so much potential most of which looks to be going largely wasted. Halo would have been beast if 343 took their time and actually developed something for the competitive community, something halo is far better suited for than cod anyway.

Also I say this as a halo fan and someone who dislikes cod but as I see it, I look at everything Treyarch has done with Black Ops 2 and compare the MP experience in that game with what 343 have done with Halo 4 and I'm extremely jealous.
