The Call Of Duty League has released a statement over the scheduling issues and have since updated the website, saying the the schedule wasn’t displayed accurately.
The new schedule means Chicago Huntsmen and Atlanta FaZe are now placed in Group A in Chicago’s Home Series, so they’ll now face each other ahead of the finals.

Following the opening launch weekend in Minnesota, Los Angeles Guerrillas player Patrick “ACHES” Price has called out the Call Of Duty League over an issue in the match schedule.
Ahead of the next tournament in London on 8-9th February, a since-deleted tweet from the Call Of Duty League account showed the groups for the eight teams competing.
The groups raised some concern with ACHES, who wrote: “Every team has now realized after reviewing the schedule that the Chicago Huntsmen and Atlanta Faze won’t ever be placed in the same group at any of the 8/12 tournaments they compete at.
“While all other teams have 1-4 (max) placements together.”
ACHES implies the Call Of Duty League has purposefully prevented the two biggest teams going up against each other in the early stages, compromising “integrity” in order to build up anticipation.
“For a league that has continued to stress competitive integrity being paramount... this is another case that shows the opposite sadly...”
GINX TV has reached out to Call Of Duty League for comment.
This isn’t the only issue which has surrounded the Call Of Duty League, with competitive rulings released only 24 hours prior to the event and patches to Modern Warfare also causing disruption.
