In a year that COVID-19 has laid ruin to plans for LAN esport tournaments, no game has better managed to create genuine excitement around their online events quite like Call of Duty's battle royale mode, Warzone, has.

With support from some of the most popular streamers in the world, tournaments like NICKMERCS' MFAM Gauntlet and Swagg's Summer Warzone, have managed to bring millions together to enjoy teams battle it out in the series of no-fat pub stomping events.

And it looks like things are going to get even bigger, with Vikram "Vikkstar" Singh Barn announcing that, in partnership with the Call of Duty League, a new nine-week event with $210,000 in prizing is set to kick off on Thursday, 27th August.

Dr Disrespect was one of the first, with the now YouTuber streamer, keeping it short and sweet with an, "I'm in."

Dallas Empire's Tommey, who obviously knows a thing or two about Call of Duty, is down too.
