COD: WW2 Rules By MLG

We’re happy to announce our first set of competitive guidelines for Call of Duty: WWII. The Call of Duty World League (CWL) team and Sledgehammer Games have worked alongside a group of current and retired professional players to ensure the 2018 CWL Season is accessible, entertaining, and most importantly, competitive.

These competitive guidelines are not final—we will release Version 1 of the offical CWL Game Settings prior to the CWL Dallas Open event, scheduled to begin on December 8th. Share your thoughts via the @CODWorldLeague Twitter and competitive subreddit. Professional player and community feedback will help us find the best balance for the official ruleset.

Call of Duty® returns to its roots with Call of Duty®: WWII—a breathtaking experience that redefines World War II for a new gaming generation. Land in Normandy on D-Day and battle across Europe through iconic locations in history’s most monumental war.

Call of Duty: WWII is a first-person shooter video game developed by Sledgehammer Games and published by Activision. It was released worldwide on November 3, 2017 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Version 1 of the competitive guidelines are as follows:

Restricted Items

Turrets

Players will not be allowed to utilize Turrets to kill another player.

Turrets provide players the ability to disregard their weapon choice and earn kills in engagements they may not have otherwise been prepared for. The development team at Sledgehammer Games is working on implementing an option to disable turrets.

Incendiary Shells

Players will not be allowed to utilize Incendiary Shells to kill another player.

Shotguns are currently in a good place—with the “Rifleman” trait being restricted, players will only be able to create a shotgun class that caters to close range combat. However, the incendiary shells provide damage over time, providing players with kills they would not normally earn with a shotgun.

Map Vetoes – LAN ONLY
Map vetoes will only occur at Global Open Events, CWL Sanctioned Events, CWL Pro League, Last Chance Qualifiers, and the CWL Championship. The map vetoes are not applicable to online GameBattles ladders or tournaments.

Map Pick and Ban Process: At the start of each match, players will decide which maps they will be competing on through this process. The higher seeded team will choose to act as team A or B. After the higher seed selects which team to act as, the veto process will begin in this order: HP, SnD, followed by CTF/Gridiron.

Higher seed Team must choose to act as Team A or Team B.

Team A vetoes one Hardpoint Map.
Team B vetoes one Hardpoint Map.
Team A chooses which remaining Hardpoint Map will be used for Game 1.
Team B chooses which sides they will be on for Game 1.
Remaining Map will be used for Game 4.
Team A chooses which side they will be on for Game 4.

Team B vetoes one Search and Destroy Map.

Map & Modes

CWL competition will consist of four gametypes to start. Players will compete in Hardpoint, Search & Destroy, Capture the Flag, and Gridiron. Game #3 will alternate between CTF and Gridiron each round. This will allow the community to test both gametypes.

We recognize 3 gametypes are ideal for the community to provide enough map variety, while ensuring players can practice and master the game. Prior to the first official CWL Game Settings we will eliminate EITHER Capture the Flag or Gridiron from the map rotation.

The first version of the Map & Mode combinations is below. Players are encouraged to share their feedback, especially surrounding their preference of Gridiron vs Capture the Flag, Search and Destroy on USS Texas, and Capture the Flag on Ardennes Forest.
