Call of Duty League breaks new viewership record with CDL Stage 1 Major

Call of Duty League 2022 season continues at full speed. CDL Major 1 has ended. The winner was OpTic Texas. The championship that OpTic Texas won with a 5-2 win against Atlanta FaZe was quite impressive.

Besides this win, the viewership numbers were also impressive. Call of Duty esports general manager Daniel Tsay said the tournament reached 186,000 instant viewers, with an average of 143,000 viewers on the fourth day. This means that it is the most watched major in Call of Duty League history.

Most watched ones are the world championships

While these figures are incredibly impressive, they lag well behind the Call of Duty World League Championship 2018 and 2019, CDL Championships 2020 and 2021.

Although huge viewership figures were reached in the magnificent final between OpTic Texas and Atlanta FaZe, it is a question of curiosity whether these viewership figures can be maintained throughout the season. Under normal conditions, the average number of viewers decreases as the season progresses.

The Call of Duty series has a solid place in the esports world

Unlike other games that stand out in the esports industry, Call of Duty comes out with a new game every year. Despite this, it manages to attract esports lovers and esports players with every new game launched. Call of Duty has been involved with many games in the esports industry lately. Let's take a look at some of these games together.

We all remember Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Although not considered one of the best games in the series, it had a pretty strong place in the esports scene. With the Call of Duty Championship 2015, esports lovers had great moments while watching Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.

A year after Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 was released. The previous Black Ops series were quite popular. Black Ops 3, on the other hand, managed to attract the attention of esports lovers, although it could not have the same effect for the gamers generally. Readers who are closely interested in Call of Duty must remember the Call of Duty XP Championship 2016, won by Team Envy. Black Ops 4 and Black Ops Cold War from the Black Ops series were also games that made a name for themselves in the esports scene.

So you remember Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, right? The debut video became the second most disliked video in the world on YouTube. The Call of Duty series has made a name for itself in the esports arena, even with such a disliked game. CWL Championship 2017 was quite interesting one

After a long time, the series returned to the period of World War II. Although it was announced as a game that created hype for everyone, it was below expectation. The CWL Championship 2018 was held in Call of Duty: World War II.

Released in 2019, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare became one of the most successful games in the series in the esports scene. $4,600,000 prize was distributed with the Call of Duty League Championship 2020.

The Battle Royale game of the series, Call of Duty: Warzone, is at the top of the series in the esports industry. The game has held dozens of tournaments since its release, and attracted a lot of attention, especially with the tournaments attended by the streamers.

Call of Duty also makes a name for themselves in the mobile esports industry

Released in 2019, Call of Duty: Mobile is still played by millions. Call of Duty Mobile World Championship 2021 was held at the end of 2021, and was also the focus of attention.

Currently, the main game of Call of Duty is Call of Duty: Vanguard. It’s in a pretty good way. The viewership record also shows that. We will see together what the future has in store.
