Call of Duty League 2022 updated ruleset

CDL 2022 is about to kick off, and I mean for real this time, unlike last week’s Kickoff Classic showcase event. First qualifier matches for the Major I are beginning on February 4, with a match between London Royal Ravens and Florida Mutineers.

Here’s the latest version of the upcoming Call of Duty League’s Vanguard ruleset for 2022. In the early announcement there was a mention of a third competitive mode and it has been revealed that it’s going to be the Control game mode in addition to the all time classic; Search and Destroy and the recent years’ Hardpoint.

Map veto process has also been updated as of January 18, you can check out its details on CDL’s official website and read the complete rule book v1.2 for yourself. More important information can be read below.
