Call of Duty Competitive Scene – 5v5
The biggest change that we could see coming to the Call of Duty eSports scene with the release of Black Ops IIII is a 5v5 team size.
OpTic Gaming pro player Ian ‘Crimsix’ Porter has weighed in with some opinions about this, with thanks to Dexerto for picking this up.
“If pubs are actually 5v5 and not 6v6, and the competitive scene has been playing 4v4, obviously there’s a disconnect,” he during a livestream. “If pubs are 5v5, there’s no reason why we shouldn’t be playing 5v5.”
A leaked image discovered in the PC files suggests 5v5 will be coming to the league play games, too: an image in the PC game files seems to suggest 5v5 competitive games will be the norm.
