Activision, in partnership with Estars Studios, announced that a brand new Creator Challenge tournament is being held for COD Mobile. The challenge will pit some of the game’s top competitors and big Call of Duty personalities against each other in a round-robin tournament. With the prize pool set at $30,000, this is the biggest tournament COD Mobile has seen since its release. The tournament is set to start Sunday, Dec. 15 with a snake-style draft. Then Dec. 21 – 22, the four teams of five will battle it out for the lion’s share of the prize. The Creator Challenge is being presented by the World Showdown of Esports (WSOE).
COD Mobile enters the esports scene
While some may discredit mobile games as esports, the fact of the matter is they require a lot of skill. In order to compete at a high level, mobile players practice and fine-tune their talent as much as any other esport player.
The COD Mobile Creator Challenge is a great benefit to both the game and the mobile gaming scene. Though the game has seen well over 100 million downloads since release, more attention is never a negative thing.
