Activision and Xbox have partnered together to put on one hell of a tournament. Call of Duty: Black Ops II is the game of choice for this championship tournament and if that’s “your game”, then put your money where your mouth is because players from all over the world will be competing for the $1 million purse. Mark your calendars ladies and gentleman because April 5-7th, in Hollywood, CA, the best of the best in Black Ops II will be gathered together.
More people play Call of Duty multiplayer every day than watch the average regular season game of the NBA. The scale and passion of the Call of Duty fan base is simply humbling, and yet there is no formal way to find out who amongst those millions of players is the best of the best, until now.
-Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing.

From there, teams of four can vie for entry into the CoD Championship by competing in the February season of League Play in Call of Duty: Black Ops II on Xbox Live. The top eight eligible teams will make it to the Championship, which will include a trip to Hollywood. If you happen to be competing at the MLG Winter Championship on March 15-17, the top eight teams will earn trips, as will the top 8 teams from the ESL’s European Finals on March 16-17. The remaining seats in the 32-team tournament will be made available internationally across Asia, Australia, and Brazil with territory-specific qualification details.
